You're not saying anything of substance. If all you wanted to know was where I was coming from, then you should have been able to figure that out by inference through everything I've written up until now. The matter of the fact is, you started out by halfway condescendingly questioning my rationale and my grounds for making a statement, then providing an example of how I could be wrong. I proved your notions false, instead you've back peddled into arguing about semantics. You're being annoying. Cut it out.

Forgive me for not being able to decipher where you are coming from with all of your opinions. As for the rest of what you wrote you are reading way too much into my intial curiosity and clarification of that curiosity, that is not what I was doing or intending to do at all.

You forgot the part where I'm a fag or a loser or a faggy loser.

I just want to point out how hilarious it is to me that: even though you've been largely inactive in these parts of the interwebs for weeks, in about an hour of being called out within the bowels of this random thread you've swooped down offer some classic Raansuck. :lol:

Boredom is a wonderful thing, and its not hard to see new posts on a dead site. Why are you still posting anyways? Shouldn't you be saving us some trouble and be jumping off a bridge right now? Your ignorance and constant pretending of knowing what you are talking about is not welcome in this world. I would gladly push you, but ya know, laws and all make it illegal.

DoA3.1 is considered the best and most competitive version in the entire series by the community. Maybe you should learn how to play the games before you open your trap?

That you admit to even coming here in the first place in order to harass and denigrate complete strangers half the world away because they have opinions that are different from yours shows how much you care and how empty the void is in your life.

Also, this game is fuckin' fantastic. Easily the most baller-shit I've played in the last year. There's nothing like grabbing onto a fuckin' griffin by it's mane, and wailing away at it with a dagger to its throat while it takes off and tries to escape, and then killing it in mid-air and riding its tail-spinning carcass back down to earth. It lets you actually do the badass shit other shitty games lock away behind QTE events. But this is all just preaching to deaf ears. Oh wells.

Looks pretty good actually.

1. How is the limited/no fast travel thing? Lotta people bitch about that but I figure it's just coddled, entitled gamers bitching about bullshit.
2. Are there spears/polearms of any kind? I didn't see any during the quick look.
3. Magic classes any fun to play? That would be what I did if there were no spears.

The endlessly respawning enemies is normally fine, but the fact that it's always in the same place and the encounters are always exactly the same sounds real bad. Also the areas they traveled to in the QL didn't look very open. Lot of linear paths and canyons and shit.

1. It was never an issue with me. Early on you get access to one-time use stones that teleport you back to the central hub-city, so you can cut out most of the annoying backtracking with that. The fast-travel system is there, but mostly reserved for your second play through. But it's not super-necessary because there are all kinds of stamina-items that basically let you sprint for forever - and sprinting drastically lets you cut down on travel-times and lets you easily outrun most baddies. So yeah, coddled-babies stuff.

2. No spears or polearms unfortunately. There's basically five classes of weapons: daggers, 1h-swords (that you can couple with shields), 2h-swords, bow & arrows, and staves. There's some variations on those (like gigantic magic-shields, hammers/clubs, or magic-bows that shoot magic arrows) but that's it. It's a little disappointing that there's no spears or other weapon types (morning stars would have been sick) but most of these are fun to play, so it's not a big deal and you shouldn't miss it.

3. Magic is tricky. It's really powerful if you do it right and spec your character well. I've made/used characters where a high-level lightning spell kills the final boss in a few hits. But magic spells take time to charge, so you've gotta be strategic by keeping out of harms way, having good stamina regen, and adjusting your pawn's behavior tendencies so that they protect you all the time. Magic in general is a lot less engaging versus swords, daggers, and bow & arrows, and physical combat is one of the biggest strengths of this game, so I'd go with those routes. There are however hybrid classes so that you can wield magic and bow & arrows, or magic & 2h-swords, so that might be worth looking into. But my favorite class is the Assassin - because they deal the highest DPS, are nimble, and their frenetic attacks make combat a lot of fun.

4. The world is a huge place, and there's lots of vast, open areas you can explore. But it's not like Skyrim where you can go *everywhere*. There are a number of huge wide open zones that are mostly blocked off from each other and connected by mountain roads or canyons. The world maps aren't that linear, but the dungeons kind of are. Enemies respawn, but it's not like an instant thing where you turn around and they're back - it usually takes you zoning out for them to respawn. Enemy placements are usually all the same, but you're not going to notice that much since you won't do that much since you don't do a lot of backtracking until the end of the game/post game.
