    ME3 romance question
    Spoiler:

    Also re: Alpha Protocol as people were discussing it, I have it and started playing it but stopped pretty early. If I were to pick it up again what are some tips for making the combat as tolerable as possible so I can just enjoy the dialogue stuff. I like playing sneaky stealth type characters and would be down with focussing on unarmed combat if that is feasible, or should I go for pistols?

    Pistols are the way to go. Chain shot ruins everyone

    Also, play on easy. No shame in it, some of the stuff in that game is straight bullshit.

    I actually really liked that they went for a smaller scope in da2.

    I did, too, at first!

    But they didn't explore nearly as much as I would have liked, in the things not directly correlating to the story at large.

    Like Flemeth. Witch Hunt ended with some very strong suggestions regarding Flemeth, and I expected her to have a much bigger involvement in the plot. I was not expecting her to pretty much disappear after her first appearance, save one brief cameo at the end of a mission later on.

    I mean, really. I found her to be more intruiging than any character introduced in DA2, and yet they could have removed her entirely from the game and it would have changed nothing.

    DA2 was a very mediocre game

    It had nice party interactions and combat was ok but the story was kinda dumb, the templar/mage thing was particularly poorly handled imo.

    PS I love DA2 in spite of its undeniable flaws.

    I was a mage and even then Fenris became a bro by the end.

    Just been messin' around on my engineer with it. I'll spec up an infiltrator later on prolly.

    It just strikes the right balance between being powerful, but still fast and effective for close in stuff. Normally I can't use sniper rifles in most games because I'm a wretched shot but it's been working out just fine so far.

    I don't normally snipe either (the Raptor doesn't really count since it's essentially an assault rifle) but it is worth it for the sheer stopping power the Valiant has.

    I went with a human and maxed out cloak and my passives, with some points in cryo blast and sticky grenades as backup. You sacrifice cloak longevity by focusing purely on damage bonuses but it's a good trade-off. Oh and I took extended barrel/piercing.

    I use extended barrel/piercing on everything except my turian sent's phaeston. Stability/extended barrel there because I don't have piercing for assault rifles yet.

    Just spec'd up one of my human infiltrators for pure sniper damage. I'll give it a spin and see what it can do.

    One of DAII's biggest problems was coming after DA:O. It did some really cool and interesting things, but people were a bit taken aback by how different the game was than the original (though the short development cycle certainly caused issues). Overall, I think it was an acceptable game.

    And speaking of RPGs, I am currently playing the original Fallout for the first time. There is a definite gap in my PC gaming history due to EverQuest/N64/PX1 during my high school years.

    DA2 is actually pretty amazing for a game with an 8 month production cycle. That's just an insanely short amount of time to get a game that long out.

  • ShabootyShabooty Registered User regular
    I keep hearing different production cycles for DA2

    "oh it was made in a year"

    "18 Months!"

    "8 months"

    "8 very busy days"
