Dragon Age: Inquisition Dagger VS Bow Comparison

Dragon Age: Inquisition Dagger VS Bow Comparison

Posted by on Dec 12, 2014 in Commentary, featured, PC, PS4, Rogue | 0 comments

Melee VS Ranged has been a contested topic as old as RPGs themselves and Dragon Age: Inquisition is no exemption. As of patch 2 Inquisition offers no game-breaking advantage between the two so the easy answer to the comparison is that it boils down to player choice. And to help make that choice here’s a quick list of the pros and cons of both styles of play.

Before I go on, let me tell you one thing that you probably already know: archery has been said to be boring in this game. I actually agree with that. Double-dagger skills are flashier and require a lot of involvement to pull off effectively. Archers, naturally, simply shoot arrows. They don’t have the flair that dagger rogues have. With that in mind, here’s the list:

Daggers:

Pros:

  • Flashier combat.
  • Melee fighting brings the action up close and personal. You feel more involved.
  • In theory, the fast attack rate should allow Hidden Blades to proc more often. Whether it actually does or not is still unconfirmed.

Cons:

  • Melee targeting can get funky sometimes. Some of your attacks will fail to land.
  • You have to chase your targets. It can get annoying when some of them are jumping or flying around.
  • You’re melee. If you can hit them it means they can hit you.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Item Duplication

Dragon Age: Inquisition Item Duplication

This is obviously an exploit. It doesn’t work on everything but they say it works on all metals and most leathers. It does not work on herbs.

  • Open your inventory then select the item you want to duplicate. Move it to Valuables. On PS4, that’s done by pressing L2.
  • Go to a vendor then proceed to sell. Go to Valuables and press Sell All then Sell individually in quick succession. On PS4, that’s Triangle quickly followed by X.
  • You’ll know you did it correctly when the item disappears, indicating a successful “Sell All”, and you get a window prompting you for the number of items you want to sell.
  • Go to the buyback screen. You should be able to buy back double the number of items you sold originally.

On Shadow of Mordor

On Shadow of Mordor

Posted by on Dec 4, 2014 in Commentary, featured, PC | 0 comments

My October was primarily about Shadow of Mordor. I’ve read that the game is a combination of Assassin’s Creed and the Batman: Arkham series so I had to check it out. I’m just going to list down the things I like about it:

  • The combat is very well-done. It’s solid, visceral and feels right at home with its Lord of the Rings setting. The slow motion effects to emphasize kills made building up that combo worthwhile.
  • Gameplay is a mix of Assassin’s Creed’s parkour and Batman: Arkham’s combat. You get the best of both worlds.
  • I like how the Nemesis system allowed me to craft my own Orc leaders. Sure, they were puppets in the end but it was still interesting to have a say in it.
