Moar DA:I

I was just reminded of a hilarious glitch we encountered in Dragon Age: Inquisition that I meant to post about.

First for those who don't play, understand that when characters are in a combat situation, if they have weapons that have special things on them, the weapon can change appearance. So for instance, Toby had Cassandra, a fighter, equipped with an axe that had some sort of fire rune or other power associated with it, so when she's in combat the axe is flaming. When she's not in combat, there's no flame, and the axe appears at her left side, as if she's got some sort of sheath there.

So. I forget where in the game it was, but it may have been during Cassandra's personal quest. The party was in a ruined keep or some such, fighting successive waves of bad guys. A cut scene triggered, and Cassandra walked around, speaking to the Inquisitor.

However, bad guys showed up at the same time that the cut scene triggered, and the game's animation got stuck halfway between "combat" and "not combat." So during the cut scene Cassandra's axe appeared by her side as if she weren't in combat, only the head was flaming, so it looked as if her ass were on fire and she wasn't noticing.

And the bad guys kept attacking Cassandra and the Inquisitor during this scene. They'd pop up behind them, shoot arrows or throw some sort of fireball-equivalent, and we'd get game noises and effects as if the arrows/fireballs hit, but Cassandra and the Inquisitor took no notice whatsoever.

I really have no idea what Cassandra was talking about, as I couldn't pay any attention to it, what with arrows, fireballs, and flaming asses. I was a bit worried that the characters were taking damage and would be dead as soon as the scene ended, but I didn't need to, as once the cut scene was over, it turned out they hadn't taken any damage from the attack.

If anyone else experienced and recorded it, and if I can find the right keywords to coax it out of YouTube, I'll link it.

So we just finished our second playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition. We haven't done the DLC yet, but Toby has Fallout 4 calling his name, so he's going on to that right now, and we plan to work on the DLC over the holidays. :)

BTW, the PS4 we bought came in last week, and this weekend we went by Best Buy and bought a used copy of Dragon Age: Inquisition and a new copy of Assassin's Creed: Syndicate.

We already played DA:I on the PS3, but this way we can both play it again with a different Inquisitor so I can romance Cullen yes we could have done that on the PS3 version and play the PS4-only DLC.

And we got $10 knocked off AC:S because someone had filed a copy of a nicer version in the wrong spot behind a locked glass door and we tried to buy it at the price it was therefore labeled, which was half of what it actually was--we tried to look it up but that version didn't show up in any of our searches, so we didn't realize it was UberSpecialVersion. The clerk called a manager over to ask if he could knock the price down for us and after the manager (1) accused us of placing it in the wrong section--we pointed out it was BEHIND A LOCKED GLASS DOOR FOR CRYING OUT LOUD and he backed down--and (2) publicly berated the clerk for daring to suggest we get the product at the price it was marked as, telling him the store couldn't give away all its margin, he offered to knock $10 off the price. At which point we said we wanted the version that was cheap, which was why we got that since it was labeled as the cheapest, and he said we could take $10 of the regular, plain version. (WHICH IS TITLED "LIMITED EDITION". IDEK.)

Anyway. This is all to say that we ran into this very glitch, which was captured for posterity by someone-or-other and uploaded to YouTube. In it, there are THREE invisible characters, Evie and Jacob Frye, the main-character assassin twins, and Henry Greene, an assassin confederate of theirs. No spoilers, unless you count them acquiring an employee and a train early on in the game a spoiler (OH NO I JUST SPOILED YOU MIGHT AS WELL WATCH IT).
