Dragon Age!
 
Ah! I love this game!

The story line and dialog are just epic.

So basically, you're a Grey Warden. And your mission is to fight off a Blight of Dark spawn and save the world from the Arch Demon.

But thats not the best part.

The best part? The romancable characters.

They've finally put one in there for us.

Meet Alistair:




Anyone else just love this game?

Elanorea 05-20-2010 02:16 PM

Woo, another fan! Yeah, I just finished the game recently, and I absolutely loved it. Best thing I've played since Baldur's Gate II. And the Alistair romance was nice, though I did not appreciate him throwing a total b*tchfit and storming off after the Landsmeet, taking all my hard-earned equipment with him :/. I'm thinking about maybe romancing Leliana next playthrough. In general, all the companion interaction in this game is wonderful, though.

The combat was pretty difficult at first, but gets easier once you get the hang of it and make a character with a decent build... my first character was an epic failure, kept dying all the time and finally I decided to start over :lol:. My second character was a city elf rogue (assassin/duelist) and I finished the game on mostly normal difficulty (though switching to easy on difficult fights, I'm lazy :lol:).

I didn't have a problem with the combat style, at all.

Oh, and yeah. Alistair was WAY hard to please. I played through first as an elf, and then he broke up with me!
so I had to play again as a human...and then we got married. So, he just lied to my elf character. Saying it was because two grey wardens couldn't produce an heir!

Really it was cos I was an elf!

Then I played as an elf mage...and quit that, because that's probably the most hated combination you can be.

Overall, my favorite was the human roouge! So much fun, and I love the duel sword abilities.

Mainly I'm just impatient... want to skip all the fighting and get to the story bits ^^;

I started a new character, a dwarven noble, and I'm about halfway through the game now. I think the dwarf noble origin might just be my favourite out of the ones I've tried, and I'm really liking the way this character turned out. Though I will have to do the Orzammar quests soon and frankly I have no idea whom to support. And ugh, I am not looking forward to going through the Deep Roads again.

NotYourPrincess 05-25-2010 08:25 PM

Ah. I know. I haaate the deep roads. That's my least favorite quest. I hate it. It's dark and gross. And then the Brood Mother. Gag.

And then to top it off, it seems to just drag on and on and on. Though, I've always found something new. Lol.

Who do you like to use in your party?

I like Alistair, Morrigan and Sten. And sometimes Shale. They seem to have the best conversations. Lol.

Oh! Have you tried seducing Zevran and Alistair? You can have like a love triangle going on, and they'll confront you about it. lol.

Previous playthrough, I went through most of the game with Alistair, Morrigan and Wynne. This playthrough, that's still the core group, though I sometimes switch out Morrigan for Leliana, and occasionally take along other characters just to hear their banter.

As I said, I'm romancing Leliana this time. I turned Zevran down early, but I think Alistair might be trying to start something - his approval level is at Care for some reason, even though I haven't been very romantic with him. But that's not going anywhere for various reasons, one of them being my character already has a girlfriend :lol:.

Also, I wish this forum had spoiler tags so we could discuss some of the endgame stuff...

NotYourPrincess 05-26-2010 01:00 PM

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED THROUGH!

























I loved the end. The first time I played through as a human noble, I chose to marry Alistair and be Queen. Which was all fine. No glitches. He slept with Morrigan (Wich made me laugh...so hard.) and he gave his little speech. Defeated the arch demon and everything went well.

The SECOND time, I chose for Anora (SP?) to take the throne...but Alistair still acted like he was king. o_o wtf? I think there's a patch. There should be.

That's a MAJOR glitch!

Elanorea 05-27-2010 01:18 PM

HERE THERE BE SPOILERS









Yeah, I also loved the ending :D. And lol at Morrigan's ritual. The first time she mentioned it I was like "WTF you crazy witch?! No way!" But unfortunately Morrigan was my main DPSer so I would've been up sh*t creek without a paddle if she'd left for the final battle, so I had to do it :lol:.

This playthrough I made Alistair marry Anora. Neither was very happy, to say the least, but it was still a better solution than him just running off. One day I should probably try to finish the game with Alistair in the party, but I just can't bring myself to kill Loghain XD.

NotYourPrincess 05-27-2010 07:21 PM

SPOILER!






Pffft. I kill him every time, and I let Alistair do it too. I just can't let Alistair go. Lol.

Have you played the second one yet?

Elanorea 05-28-2010 11:31 AM

The second one? Do you mean the expansion? No, I don't have that yet.

SPOILERS AHEAD






Leaving Alistair was pretty tough for me the first time as well, seeing as my character was in a relationship with him and everything. But I thought having Loghain in my party was a really interesting possibility (I hadn't previously considered that we'd even be given the option to spare him), so I decided to finish the game like this, and oddly enough I started to really like him as a character.
