I am happy you liked it! Game is indeed interesting. I already started another round with a use of one particular guide on how to get Completionist achievement. To get it, I must finish the maximum amount of side quests through entire game. As it turns out, it is impossible to complete all
of the side quests per one play-through because certain choices change the story. Also, there sometimes seems to be a certain sequence in which side quests should be done in order to achieve maximum completion rate. I have only started first chapter, yet I already seem to play in a different course of actions. You would be amazed if you knew more.
Wow, it seems like this game offers you fun and interesting adventures and decisions for hours to come! Lucky you! I would be pleased to hear more of them, even if it is not Blackguards! :)
I must say it has been an interesting journey following your progress updates. Both for Indiana Jones and for Age of Wonders. I felt like I could feel your frustrations with the game even though I myself have never played it. Well done!
The frustrations were real, especially at the very beginning. The tutorial basically explains nothing. For instance, the right use of magic is the key to success in this game. Not only in combat, but especially out of combat, when you can buff your heroes and units, enchant cities, roads and even the land itself. No word of all of that in the tutorial.
But once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier. Later on, your heroes become extremely overpowered. I essentially beat the last three campaign missions using nothing but my group of two or three heroes, who could easily smash complete enemy armies with ease.
I have played Dragon Age Origins a few times all the way through (three I think). And started the game many times more just to play through the individual stories. If you do not know what that means, you are sure to soon find out. Game is very good and of a very good quality. I feel like you might enjoy it as the adventure is pretty interesting. Also this game would be a nice change from Age of Wonders. Somehow not too different, but also better in some ways. Well, I suggest you think it. Game is really good.
I actually have to admit that the last, and only, Bioware RPG I have ever played was Knights of the Old Republic 1. I love that game, it is easily in my all-time top 10 list.
I bought this version of Dragon Age some time ago and have not played it since. To be completely honest, I don't even have any idea what this game is about. My knowledge of gaming releases of the last 10 years or so is rather limited, I bought it on a whim and that I heard it was good. Guess I'm in for some surprise!
Anyways, I just started the game and have to choose between Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Awakening. What is the difference between the two and does it matter? Apparently I also have all the DLCs.
Long story short, I accept your choice and am eager to delve into adventures! :)
