    I finished the game a few hours ago.

    Storywise, I feel like it had a really cool overarching plot but that most of the actual conversations were poorly written.

    Kind of get the feeling that they don't really like mages as much as they did in DA:O.

    and DA2 is all "Yes. And here is why."

    I'm willing to assume they have some sort of system in place where visits can be arranged and family/friends can go to the Circle. Mages going to family/friends is a no-no, though.

    The game felt pretty half-baked in general.

    I wouldn't call it a bad game.

    But you really went through the same locations so, so many times.

    Reminded me of Vampires: The Masquerade - Bloodlines with starting strong and occasionally being really good and then devolving into a noticeably glitchy unfocused mess towards the end.

    All in all I consider this a pretty bad attempt from Bioware. I'm going to wait for patches before i touch it again. Its just soooo buggy and I am finding the lack of a real narrative annoying. There is such a thing as too many side quests.

    Hmm, does anyone know why I cannot find Solivitus the merchant for the Herbalist's Tasks quest? He is not at his usual station in the Gallows. I have picked up two of the quest items before starting the quest. Is that why?

    EDIT: Never mind, I just found that he appears after Sundermount.

    I guess I was just unreasonably lucky. The only bug I get is that the game often starts in windowed mode.

    Yeah, it's worth the sixty bucks, but it has a lot of problems. The writing and combat make up for it, though.

    Actually, I had the same problem and after some investigation found that for whatever reason, the game is setup to run in windowed mode at the startup. If you look under the game's options there's an option to have it run in fullscreen as the default.

    I've had a single crash so far in this game. Compare that to, say, Fallout 3 which even after many, many patches crashes constantly and I have trouble saying this is a buggy game.

    It's sort of jarring going through the game as a mage because the whole "mages are dangerous assholes" theme is so prevalent. You'd think there'd be someone like Wynne or Irving to show you "see, there are perfectly functional, decent mages about." But nope, apparently I'm the only mage in the entire goddamn city who can keep their shit together.

    I'm pretty sure for anyone who hasn't played Origins and rolls a warrior or rogue their first time, mages must look absolutely terrible.

    The Enigma of Kirkwall revelations go a long way towards explaining this phenomena though.

    So should I expect the game to pretty much force me into using Anders at some point? Much like DA1 did with Wynne?

    Unless I crank the difficulty way down.
