I have done NaNoWriMo (www.nanowrimo.org) since... 2001 I do believe. Every year. These days I do NaNo summer camp as well. I have never failed.
Dragon Age, don't make me fail D<
I can preload today... that's something, right?
Living in one of the few regions for which EA decided to restrict linguistic options via Origin retail, last week or so has been pure stress and mess of going out of my way to overpay and lay my paws on an English version.
It should work, and I should be able to buy all of the pre-order DLC goodies later, and it shouldn't override English with locale... but this encumbrance in addition to spiritual observance that such a rare and precious occurrence demands have left me bereft; of any and all readiness.
I am not, and I sympathise.
I hope my copy arrives before it's over. I'm supposed to graduate this coming spring AND I have a project I'm struggling with. It would suck not to be able to play before December.
Not directly related but at this point I want to register my displeasure at being unable to note my Hawke's unrequited love for Aveline in the keep.
I have nothing but sympathy. I preloaded and it doesn't work. I am about to venture out for a 2 mile walk in below freezing weather for a PS3 version. I kind of wish everyone who is able to play would quietly enjoy it and stop taunting me now. -_-
@Deonis: Preloaded and ready. So ready. Hrngh.
@Morgan The Skald: That... is just bloody cruel. Why on earth would they do that?!
@riverdaleswhiteflash: I went for a digital copy because I remember the pain of having to go out in the middle of nowhere to pick up the physical copy when DA2 came out. I also took a day off work to play haha
@Norgrath: I fully expect the game to assume that this is true for everyone. Because Aveline.
@Punchysporkk: That is horrific D: if it doesn't work I don't know what to do. PC is my only alternative. Cry, probably.
@zenat: So close, yet so Goddamned far. The wait's torture, that's what it is.
But I am so glad I decided to pre-order this over AC:Unity. Damn, I dodged a bullet there.
@zenat: I wouldn't get too excited. I bought it and it didn't work at all. I did some looking around, and found a lot of people are having this problem if the game is not on Xbox. PS4 is not as bad, but PC is awful. A very lucky few have gotten it to work.
Just got the game, have to say it's quite awesome.
@Deonis: The whole 'women are too difficult to animate' thing kinda made me swear off buying any further games in the AC series :/
@NadiaBrosca: Don't say that D: I took Monday off so I could play damnit... and bought a new computer because the old one certainly wouldn't be able to handle it.
@Ragnorok : Bragging :p
@zenat: I hope it works for you, so I can read comics about it and cry until they fix the problem.
Lived through the six worst hours of my life yesterday... me and my flatmate went to pick up our copies, but while her PS3 version worked immediately, my PC one only preloaded and didn't let me play until past midnight >.< But all is well now, my qunari mage is a sassy and dangerous woman :D (Cassandra hates her. Best buddies with Varric.)
So, even with a physical copy, I've had a nightmare trying to link my psn and origin accounts so that I can actually use the keep (I'd previously linked my psn account to a different origin account).
Have y'all experienced it yet?
@NadiaBrosca: It's going to be a while! We are getting ideas like mad (and writing them down) but we swore not to post them until after New Years, so everyone has a chance to play :)
@warrion: That... is horrific D: I was lucky and the laptop I bought for this specific purpose can handle the game. Aside from a few nvidia related crashes.
@Norgrath: There was a loooong moment of tense fear that it wouldn't work for me as it loaded, very very slowly. One of our friends had troubles with crashes in the menu, which didn't really make me any less afraid. It worked out though, for all three of us.
@Dude: We're playing on all the spare time we can find! I slept 4 hours last night because uh, well, I might have been very focused on the game and suddenly it was 2 am :I I am a wreck today.
