Requirements aren't that high. I think it's running on the years old Unreal technology. It's worth playing even if you turn the graphics quality down a bit. This game is one of the best I've ever played. And Mass Effect 2 is coming out on the 26th !
Mass Effect 1 was only like 20 hours long - Dragon Age: Origins this one is clearly about 100hours or more. It's a HUGE game dude. And every single bit of dialogue is voice acted. And there are hundreds of decisions to be made. And there is a ton of ways to play this game. This is a must buy game for anyone who enjoys RPGs. MUST buy.
Like in the very beginning there is this one part where these highwaymen stop you on the road and ask you for a 'donation' so they can help repair a bridge.
You're options are:
A) Give them a donation.
B) Convince them there is a loaded up wagon with lots of good cargo on it coming their way so that they don't want to waste their time 'collecting donations' from you.
C) Intimidate them by telling them you are much stronger than they are.
D) Forget about all that kill them and take all the stuff they stole for yourself.
E) Or do what I did and mock them by pretending to make a donation and then kill them and take all their stuff.
There are probably more options than that but those are the ones I have encountered as a mage which is the class that I play. Usually you can intimidate people just by telling them you're a mage! Get respect, be a mage!
And I have to say the dialogue is hilarious and well written. Like during the highwayman part the leader asks you, "Don't you see that you're outnumbered"
and one of the dialgue choices you get to respond to him is, "It's hard to be outnumbered by common thugs". That made me laugh.
I can only use Bringer, BKR Jack, and returns cuz I'm a free player. It's my best shot at winning!
