Never.

No matter how bad I am anticipating a game, I'd rather have my first experience be with a finished, fully-realized product.

I respect the amount of work needed to release a quality…

Thank you for the clarifications, joxer. I feel a bit better about exploring more now. Oh, and I'm definitely not ignoring crafting. ;)

Just to re-emphasize the size of this game: I am approaching 100 hours in and I feel like I am not even 1/2 through the main plot. I am the kind of "completionist" player that likes to explore a…

The biggest disappointment for me so far is the outright removal of detailed AI tactics. You can no longer precisely program what you and your NPCs do in combat, you can only configure high level…

If she's recruitable, she'll definitely be in my party. Hopefully she's romancable. Finally a chance for a black male / black female romance in a CRPG.

I've pushed on despite the saving woes (I'm sure this is what the dev's predicted. "Where else are starved PC RPG fans gonna go? They'll take what we have regardless!").

Well right now I'm pretty early in the game, but going between the Market and the Refugee camp triggers the autosave icon. So I'm guessing any transition where it needs to load a map (& you get a…

Exactly. Allowing you to save your progress at will is something that is just a fundamental part of a story-based RPG. It shouldn't be compromised on, PERIOD.

I'm really surprised about the saving system. It used to be it was just a given that any kind of RPG or action/adventure game would let you save your game at will. But now it's like you cannot…

Disagree here.

While I agree that #1 (Dragon Age: Origins) is clearly the better game, #2 is still enjoyable and has more polished, exciting combat.

Are the days of the major 20-30 hr. expansion gone?

I was just thinking.

The last time we had any kind of serious CRPG expansion was Dragon Age: Awakening.

Can you save anytime you want to? Or is this one of those "checkpoint" save systems?

This was one of those "two steps back" (to borrow from BrotherNone's review) moments for me.

I can grab and move items by holding "E" (or whatever the interact key is). But I can't launch or throw them around. I can't remember if we could do this in Oblivion or…
