    I would say that's both linear and open world. Each zone is open but limited in the sense of they're not connected. You zone from area to another using your map. But these zones are pretty massive and at times they're so big that it feels like it goes on forever...like a desert area in the game. But I think that was intentional. I'm not saying it doesn't have reply value in general, I think it does; especially with the Dragon Age Keep. With the Keep you can shape each play through by changing the previous games. But for me, I try to get everything done in 1 play though and I quit. The only game that kept my attention beyond the main game itself are Elder Scrolls games but that was because of the mods.

    I can't say I agree with the "repetition" crowd because all games are repetitive. Its their nature. There is no such thing as a truly dynamic video game, it just doesn't exist. The game is great based on the parameters the developer has put in it. Single player is excellent and long, I managed to squeeze in 85 hours in this play through and completed everything outside of 100% complete itemization. The MP is boring and dull. I found it to be not very fun at all....but this is DA, its a single player game.

    Thanks for your help. I figured it out. It was the resolution (I have a 3k display) and even though I set it to 1600x900 is was still rendering in 3k with windowed fullscreen mode... SO just needed to adjust the resolution scaling and boom, 40fps. woot!

    Yeah borderless windowed instantly matches monitor resolution. That FPS scaling is a lifesaver apparently.

    I had been wanting this game for a while, but I have a couple questions before making the leap.

    1) I have read a lot about poor PC optimization... My specs are in my signature. Hopefully I would be able to run this on high settings, right? :err: If not... :O

    2) I also read about bugginess/issues rendering the PC version almost unplayable... is that still true?

    Thanks :)

    Every game should have it. It's super useful for people like me with 4K displays.

    You could just fullscreen the game and select a lower resolution. It still blurs the game no matter what ya do once you go below effective native res, so I don't exactly see how it's a big thing. I do agree games should have it, but for different reasons than why you want it XD. You're not allowed to complain about high-res after all we cautioned you about it and you still wanted it XD.

    Who's complaining?

    It allows the UI to be displayed in all of its 4K glory (which is great because text is one area that the higher resolution excels in smoothing out) while running the actual 3D content at 1080p. That's what I mean. I am not complaining about interpolation, which I still maintain is not very noticeable at the 15.6" screen size for 3D content. Rather, it is 2D content which suffers more from running at sub-native resolutions, which is why this in-game scaler thing is so useful.

    FPS looks the same for me. I think I've done this once a few weeks ago accidentally and didn't notice a change nor did I think to benchmark it haha

    I'm about 100 hours in with a double daggered rouge at level 20. I'm trying to complete every quest and task before moving on and it's beginning to prove tedious. But I suppose the margin of "formulaic gameplay" is wide enough to be enjoyable. I just wish there was a way to gain more influence for perks faster and more experience so I could level up quicker. I've slain 3 dragons so far. Planning to level up more before doing the other ones.

    Added note, I'm getting 40+ FPS on all medium settings with SSAO and 2x MSAA.
