Tacticular Cancer: We'll have your balls

  1. It has come to this administration's attention that brofists are divisive, and encourage the formation of agenda-based brofist cliques. The RPGCodex strives to provide a welcoming forum experience for all fans of the genre, and brofists are hindering this mission's success. In light of this, brofist functionality has been removed so as to create a new, better, Codex browsing experience.

    We further advise our members not to attempt circumvention of this removal by reverting to the old and just as divisive method of creating empty posts of "+1" and "what he said." Such posts only seek to further a culture of exclusion where select users may end up feeling discomfort or emotional trauma. These posts will be considered spam and thus a banable offense. The Codex administration seeks to provide a safe and secure posting environment where the needs of the minority outweigh the needs of the agenda-reproducing majority.
  2. Welcome to rpgcodex.net, a site dedicated to discussing computer based role-playing games in a free and open fashion. We're less strict than other forums, but please refer to the rules.

    <p><a href="http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/141/index/6395493&amp;lf=8" target="_blank">This might not be relevant</a> to our collective concerns as there's no such thing as a console-owning Codexer (ahem), but it's amusing all the same.</p>
    <blockquote>Auto-attack option for consoles was added in to the games late in the development cycle after the initial certification build was sent. The auto-attack functionality was sent to be added to the game for testing and approval. This was why staff said it was in game.<br /><br />Due to an error during mastering, the auto-attack file was omitted during manufacture.<br /><br />We apologize for this. It was meant to be in game, but it is not currently in the console versions. We are working on how best to distribute this to console users. When we have information, we will let everyone know.</blockquote>

    So they must keep mashing the A button, if I understand it correctly?

    Wasn't that the original game premise? I fail to see how that is an issue.

    After reading the title I half expected it to be about the PC version having auto attack removed because there were not as many buttons pushed resulting in less awesome happening.

    This was done to ensure that awesome will always happen on the console versions.

    DA-2 parentage, BG the real daddy? Hands on fondling indicates oblique origins.




    After extensive 'classic gameplay' examination, the one, the true, *action* rpg heritage of DA-2 ...

    raises it's pulsing, 'cigar is sometimes NOT a cigar', head.

    The real rpg is Jotstick, a.k.a. Phallic, larping.

    With just a dash of panache of dating SIM ... to season the raw T and A.

    The marketers are right. Yes indeed, some people in this internet age WILL pay for porn!

    I too fail to see the issue. To get a true feeling of how visceral the combat is one needs to mash the button anyway.

    Patching for XBOX will require online access correct? Online access that you purchase through Microsoft. Buy the game, forced to get online to update the game because it shipped as an alpha build.

    Fucking gold!

    Really fucking amateur release by Bioware here, really fucking amateur. One would think this is their first fucking game. Also, in before Volly *shrug*

    Editing this in.

    Press a button, something Awesome happens. White damage is Awesome! PRESS IT LOTS FOR MAXIMUM AWESOME!!!

    I think I have to concur, that DA2 is the best thing to happen around here for a long time, such a fucking amateur job from an allegedly AAA Dev being released like this, its a fucking goldmine of hilarity. The thing that brings me back to earth with a shuddering crash is, the Biofans, they really bring this entire farce into a horrifying reality shock, they love the changes, they excuse the developers, they happily eat the shit being dumped on them, and they clamour for more.

    They are the new gamers, they are a reflection of what the new demographic will be targeting. The land whale sofa cows, the twilight gamers, the cowadoody kids, the new shallow generation will be the next target, and such a broad target it is. Do you know what the lowest common denominator is? 1. The ronriest number.

    They leave out this 'feature' for the consoles. They leave out high res textures for the PC version. They leave out the RPG bits. What a fucking shambles.

    That's not all. Patches for the 360 (and I assume the PS3) have to go through Microsoft's (and Sony's) QA department before they can be released, which apparently can take a long time. The patch also can't be above a certain size, and there are other random restrictions. So even if they manage to get the patch together in short order, it'll probably be a few months before they can deploy it.

    That level of access is free on the 360. You know come to think of it how can they have a manufacturing fail on both the 360 and the PS 3. How can it be the same file. This was on purpose. I think EA has more to do with it than Bioware. Not to let Bioware off the hook but EA lives off of the uninformed. I agree with you. This will wake a lot of people up. The console version will be a joke. The fast combat combined with having to bang just to watch animations will turn people off of button mashing.

    On page 21 of this thread: (http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic ... 6395493/21) read what GulfWarVet reports about game magazine reviews. They went from merely sucking cock to massive deepthroats.

    EA doesnt pay for reviews directly. I know how they do it though. With the way the economy is web entrepreneurs are looking for the advertisement dollars and if you write anything to negative on EA who gives out money to small sites they arent printing it.

    Some sites will offer their writers more freedom.
