*Official* Dragon Age 2 Discussion / Screenshot / Benchmark Thread - Page 47

post #461 of 541
A few screenshots of moments that made me laugh in DA2:
(spoilers if you haven't beaten Act II)
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Good thing a spear through the chest only does 13 damage.

How is this merc still standing?

I like how Hawke takes a sword through the chest with no emotion. A true champion!

Isabela should try out for the Kirkwall basketball team.

Isabela uses her potent flatulence attack that she learned in the Hanged Man.

I finally finished the game yesterday and clocked in at 60 hours. Some of that time was probably spent on pause or alt-tabbed out of the game though.

I run at a solid 60fps with vsync. Haven't seen a single drop below 60 since the new driver install. This is at 1920x1080 and all settings, aa, af, ect maxed out.

I was in the 30-45fps range back when the game launched on the first beta drivers that enabled sli for it. Haven't played it much (10> hours) due to the low fps, so I'm about to jump back into it right now.

Spent some of that time off from it unlocking all the items from the DA legends facebook game.

I just played it a couple minutes a day just to unlock all of the items, the trick is to just have you castle build you 12 of each potion every day. come back the next day and get as far as you can. Rinse and repeat until you get all of the unlocks.

The fb game itself is rather boring imo.

I'm kind of leaning towards two handed... it looks cooler!

by end game, the damage you do with a greatsword will be very big.
It's true you can rearrange your stats at the black emporium with the potion. I'm using a 2handed warrior and it's mad fun. Just whacking the crap out of people and seeing grunts go flying.

Even with a Single GTX 570, I do really well. Very High, with the new textures. I don't have everything turned up, but I am still at the 60 fps mark, where I was only at 44-45 previously with High Detail settings.

So this is exactly what the nvidia cards needed.
