On My Final Thoughts On Dragon Age Inquisition

So a few days ago I finished up Dragon Age Inquisition on the PS4. I previously discussed the game when I first started playing.Now that I’ve finished up I thought I’d write up some final thoughts on the game. In my original post I guessed that there would be somewhere between 100-150 hours of gameplay. For the most part that was pretty accurate. My final total hours played was 115. That did include some time where I just had the game paused so a bit less. That is also just the total hours until I finished the main story, I’m sure that there are things that I missed. Graphics The graphics in this game are simply gorgeous. Every environment that I played in was beautiful and well designed. Maybe some more than others, but they were all fantastic.

On Microtransactions

Recently I have been reading reports that say there is speculation about microtransactions appearing in the next Mortal Kombat game (Mortal Kombat X).

I’m totally fine with that. Those items generally are only cosmetic and don’t give any kind of advantage. My problem with games like Assassins Creed Unity, Dragon … Read more…

On Dragon Age Inquisition

So a couple weeks back I started playing Dragon Age Inquisition and so far I’m enjoying it. Now I haven’t really gotten that far in to the game, only a handful of story missions at this point. Mainly I’ve been spending my time running around doing side quests. One of the things I have enjoyed the most is the character creation. I would have to say this is one of the, if not the most, in depth creator I’ve used. My only complaint is that you cannot adjust anything other than the facial features. If you want to see a bit of the character creator here’s a video I recorded on twitch. I don’t do the voice over thing, because people tend to want funny personalities and I’m not intentionally funny. From what I’ve played I can see this game is going to take me forever to finish playing. I’m … Read more…
