I am preloaded and ready. I like DA on PC for the mods that come out. There were some good ones for the original game that changed the sex scenes from X to XXX.

I've been in since they announced a date on PS4. I will be interested in seeing how successful the imports of the previous decisions from PS3 will be.

Dragon Age Origins was the game that got me back into gaming from my Atari days. I'm super stoked about the release.

I don't think that this game imports past game decisions. Basically start new.

OK, I rolled an easy S&B human warrior to get my feet wet and checkout the controls. The game taxes my old system just a bit. Most of the setting defaulted to High instead of Ultra and ran at 37 fps. Of course my card won't support DX12 so it defaulted to DX11. While I can tell that I am missing a few things here and there the game is still stunning.

Standard WASD movement controls but has native gamepad support. I do have a problem with the cursor. I keep losing it. I wish that it were larger or brighter or a different color. I'll experiment to see if there are any options for that. Combat was a mix of mouse and hot keys.

The game itself is a mix of the approaches of both DA Origins and DA 2. Fortunately it combines the best of both instead of the worse. Basically combat/movement from O with the radial menu from 2.

Ah, really nice to see some of the characters from games past. I always had a thing for Leiliana. She is here but doesn't look or act quite the same. Varric is here and is a perfect replica from 2. This is all just from the playable intro. More will become available later.

To loot or complete many other right click actions the cursor must be centered on a very small area. Too small for my old eyes but I am managing. This isn't a Diablo style barrel buster though and loot containers are not so frequent.

My impression from the intro is very positive. I will take a little time to read the manual and experiment some more with this toon. Looking forward to playing some more this evening!

That was a PITA. It had much of my decisions wrong. Add in that I had played every race and profession and chose different paths really made it a mish mash. I do have it all edited now. Thanks for the heads up!

Playing on PS4. This has been really good so far. They have designed a really nice looking world that wets my appetite for what they can do when the series becomes a next gen only game with no constraints from the 360/ps3 versions.

Try it on PC using ultra settings. It is amazing how far graphics have come. I remember when Half-Life came out with "cutting edge" graphics with their facial system. Now compare that to this and it is funny. The faces on this game is amazing (except for the beards but).

Now the game itself is also excellent. The amount of exploration is awesome. I am really enjoying it.

I have enjoyed the world building so far. As opposed to skyrim, the actions you take in the story reflect in the environment. Will see how that continues as I am still relatively early in the game considering how many hours I have put into it.

They really have created some beautiful areas in this game. some of these areas with multiple waterfalls, ponds and streams have me actually wishing I could visit. Really nice water in this game; and in an age where water is generally done well, that is saying something.
