Yeah, whether it is Xbox Live or PSN Plus, you need a paid membership for multiplayer games on the two big consoles.

There is actually a strong "liked DA2" core of BioWare fans, and even a "not quite small" group who liked DA2 more than DA:O.

"BioWare fans" are not really monolithic. You can't paint with a…

Huh.

I hope the game is good, I really do.

But this is not a pre-order for me, and I certainly won't be getting any Collector's Edition.

Gaider's comment can be technically more true than false

he can be a grade-A sarcastic ASS at the same time.

Both can be (and, in this case, happen to be) correct.

Just a small correction - this isn't a typical demo, it's Early Access. There's a world of difference, with most game demo's dropping really close to release date, and requiring so much extra work…

I have put a little time into it. I am not, personally, a fan of playing unfinished games. Too many betas of MMO's beat any enjoyment out of me. Dead State and Wasteland 2 are games I am wanting…

If you are pretending the character you are playing is NOT the character the game acknowledges, you are engaged in a very special kind of head-canon that has nothing to do with the game. If the game…

1988 had Wasteland, Bard's Tale 3, Batteltech, Ultima V and Pool of Radiance, to name the cream of the crop. At least as good (I'd say better) than 1998, with Baldur's Gate, Diablo and Fallout 2.

2013 was bad. I didn't play most of those, and some that I did I'm hard pressed to consider an RPG (like BioShock.)

So for 2013 I did:

People against Steam just come across to me as people who 'need' vinyl or, worse yet, advocate the gold standard.

Ideology that trumps reality.

Certainly does look to be a ridiculously promising year. And, luckily for my budget, all those KS ones I want are ones I backed so I've got a ton of games coming to me I already paid for!
