Still need to play Witcher 2, but I'm looking forward to 3, too. Maybe I'll wait and get it cheap on a steam sale.

You guys are making me want to continue DA:O with the talk of DA:I being good. If I ever get there, I should skip DA2, right?

It's disappointing in the main, but if you can get it cheaply, it's better than watching paint dry

There are some good points, and a smidgen of cross-over into DA:I, but it is certainly the runt of the litter, by a fair margin (IMO).

I enjoyed DA:2 (and I enjoyed DA:O) - but it is really different from DA:O and DA:I. It's much more akin to an agoraphobic version of Kingdom of Amalur. If you played Amalur and hated it - skip it. If you played Amalur and liked it - play it.

Just know that it is fundamentally different type of game than DA:O and DA:I.

The reviews should probably come out within the next few days. Seems like a lot of people are waiting for those.

When I first got my PS4, this was one of the games I was really excited for. All I know about it now is that they didn't release review copies (never a good sign) and that the PC's performance is not good (supposedly a Day 1 patch caused issues). I did see a few people recommend it for PS4 on reddit, but I'm going to wait a bit so see how things play out.

I played an arena on First Light, and decided I was done with the game. I started paying bills and what not on my laptop, so I watched someone stream Dying Light on PS4. From the 30-45 minutes I watched, it's basically Dead Island with improved parkour. I liked DI1 enough to finish it, but I have no desire to play sequels. I was hoping for something more.

Though, there is an easy to get weapon called EXPcalibur that supposedly doesn't break and does crazy damage (saw guy find it). Also, there's a fun reference to Destiny's loot cave.

I then started Valiant Hearts. That will be a good game to remote play (simple controls), so I'll likely find another game to play along side it.

Spotify is replacing Playstation Music. You'll be able to pay Spotify with your Playstation Wallet and listen to music while you play games. I don't know whether to be happy there's a new option on the PS4 or annoyed that Sony still hasn't added DLNA support or CD playback.
