    Alright, thanks for the input guys.
    Looking forward to trying my luck at this.
    Tip before you start: prepare your left stick.
    Much walking will take place in the near future.

    A fewquick questions about this game. Iis there much in the way of acrobatics outside of climbing on big monsters? For instance, can you scale walls or cliffs, or even simply grab onto a ledge and haul yourself up?

    How big are the dungeons in this game? Any sort of huge, sprawling underground structures?

    How much pointless stuff is there to do outside of adventuring? That's one thing I always like seeing in RPGs for some reason.

    "They're masterworks all, you cant go wrong" is now forever etched into my mind

    And how come when    The duke goes batshit and strangles his wife whose name i forgot, when you get out of the dungeon he acts like nothing happened? I'd be pretty pissed.   

    Edited:

    PS3 is noticeably better in most ways: Textures on characters look like watercolor on 360, shadows appear to be higher res on the PS3 as well, and I've never seen the PS3 slow down from particle effects where walking through a healing spell on 360 makes it a bit choppy.
    If you have a choice, go PS3
    Yeah PS3 does slowdown for me, but it only happened once when there was healing and fire and ice and meteors and fucking everything flying around because pawns like to overkill

    Striders can get the ability to double jump (and Rangers and Assassins can also use it). You can climb ledges too but there's no advanced stuff like wall climbing. You can run around Gran Soren's rooftops which is pretty cool.

    The game doesn't really have the that many dingeons, it's not a dungeon crawler. The ones that do exist vary in size and usually have some pizzle elements. The main dungeon in the Everfall which is pretty big, and even bigger (kinda) in the post-game.

    The game has a lot of side quests, but they're mostly escort and collection quests. You can craft and make potions but to get or upgrade armour you need to see an armouror, you'll also need materials for advanced upgrades.

    It annoys me that double vault is daggers only
    And that assassins lose downpour volley
    I was gonna go assassin but they get none of the sword skills I really liked and none of the bow skills I really liked, probably gonna go magick archer instead

    There is some climbing involved in this game, although it is not to complex. But you can jump around rooftops and ruins, the game even encourages you to do it because there are tons of hidden items/chests to be founds. Just don't expect something like AC.

    There are some big dungeons in this game, also some small ones. Although there aren't that many. Some are really big though and cool. Like the quarry or catacombs. They are nicely made though, nothing like Skyrim with generic caves.

    This game is pretty much about exploring and defeating monsters, doing some quests. There isn't much to do besides of collect that, kill those. You can find some cool hidden chests which is awesome. But there isn't much to do. Perhaps throwing bandits off the cliffs

    I think it's like a mutual understanding that if either of you were to bring up either of your intentions in that room, that you'd both be fucked. No doubt the Duchess's home land would've waged war against Gransys when she returned or something and obviously he wouldn't fuck over the Arisen cause you're the only one able to fight the dragon.

    I'm gonna pick this up tomorrow, good fun the demo was.
    Curious about the game though, has anyone got any input on which version of the game runs better ? I can buy a 360 or PS3 copy so it doesn't matter to me which one it is.
    Ps3 version probably is better in every way, but for some SKU's of both systems there might be framerate issues.

    They did mention he was ill. I assumed his illness caused his behavious. Mostly because he was wondering what happened after he did it.

    Eventually you just stop caring about chests, which helps. Once you realize how great the assassin augments are, there's no reason to use a pawn, so the only person to outfit is yourself.

    On my second character now, ranger is great fun. Just roamed around the countryside for a bit, there is so much stuff you won't see if you just follow the main story. Was ambushed by a drake during the night, chugged a vim and legged it back to Gran Soren as fast as I could.

       This sure is a mighty thread!
    'tis even bigger up close!

    It is, but usually it's more fun to solo. I can kill gorechimeras in three seconds flat.

    That big quest where you take back an outpost or castle or whatever from a fuckload of goblins made me see how important pawns were

    Got inside and all pawns died, couldn't revive and accidently moved to next area killing all 3, the rest of the quest was so hard and it was so fucking quiet.

    Man, nobody hires my pawn. If anyone's looking for a level 35 Mage with a good mix of healing (both the normal and debilitation), offense and buffs, look for Randalf, courtesy of Eastman_89.

    Imo there's no reason to play without pawns unless you want to make it harder for yourself and miss out on things.

    I've cut about 5 hours into the game so far, and I have to say that I'm glad I bought this. Nothing like climbing on an ogre and stabbing it in the head until its face is set alight.
    I've not had much luck with the mage variants so far though, I just die too quickly to archers and the like, however the assassin is great fun. Up next is a warrior archetype I think.
    Cool game.

    To fix this just play warrior for a while. When you're a warrior your health pool grows at a much faster rate. Makes playing a mage much more viable.

    You can't finish the game without a godsbane. Alternatively it provided an extra ending to the game early on.

    When you use it you kill yourself. There's an appropriate time for that, but until then, it's super useful. Easy way to get to a retry screen, so if you save before a chest you can keep godsbaning and reloading until you get what you want.

    I held it and it looked like I was about to end it. So I figured it killed me, but he said that it ended the game...
    I'm confused now.

    and off topic Zina, do you have D3?

    It's a plot point later on, but at the point you're at it's just useful for the game over screen.

    Also, the lady that asks you for 20 wakestones...don't finish it until you're going into NG+. You can get as many wakestones as you want, just don't turn them in.

    Depends what you want. KoA is way bigger and longer than DD, but not as deep, in terms of strategy. KoA is purely action based, where as DD is tactical and strategic. The plot in both is thin, although KoA has more plot, but to be honest, I just skipped the conversations to get the quests. KoA is primarily fetch quests, whereas DD has varied quests.

    I own both, I like both, but I doubt I'll even finish KoA, even after playing it for 30 hours, I am still in the top left of the map (the green areas), and have yet to see something after than forest and green plains, although the map consists of 8 massive biomes I have yet to explore. KoA probably has about 200 hours in it. DD can be finished in about 20, but is more addictive.

    Okay, I've got my eye on this game. Form what I've heard it's pretty good.
    However I have a few questions.
    1) What's the multiplayer like
    2) How does the combat feel
    3) General overall thoughts
