DAI PC 1

Dragon Age: Inquisition will be out in about a month. It’s really getting close now and I can feel my RPG senses tingling. I will be playing it on new generation console, but I know many of you are grabbing it on PC. Luckily, the game probably won’t require you to upgrade your machine to play.

DAI PC 2

The PC version of the game supports use of an Xbox 360 controller. This is great for those who want to pretend their playing on Xbox but with better graphics. Okay, here are your PC requirements:

Minimum:

  • OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD quad core CPU @ 2.5 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 2.0 GHz
  • System RAM: 4 GB
  • Graphics CARD: AMD Radeon HD 4870, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
  • Graphics Memory: 512 MB
  • Hard Drive: 26 GB
  • DirectX 10

Recommended:

  • OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: AMD six core CPU @ 3.2 GHz, Intel quad core CPU @ 3.0 GHz
  • System RAM: 8 GB
  • Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7870 or R9 270, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
  • Graphics Memory: 2 GB
  • Hard Drive: 26 GB
  • DirectX 11

DAI PC 3

I’m pretty impressed with the team from Bioware. Somehow, they took a gorgeous game and managed to make it work with only 4 GB of RAM or 512 MB of graphics memory. Of course, I’m sure it will look a whole lot better on a more powerful machine, but at least people with older PCs can get in on the Inquisition, too.

Remember, if you play on PC you’ll need to have Origin for online authentication when you install the game. Has Origin grown on you thanks to giving games away for free, or does it still feel like a punishment for choosing to play a game from EA?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

  • Spaffy

    I just just have recommended.
    So I’ll have to upgrade soon ๐Ÿ™

    • Brady miaau

      To which console?

      • Spaffy

        I think you misread my comment…
        I said UPGRADE, damn you

        • Brady miaau

          Oh. really? Oops, my bad

          ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ryanza

    Funny how they left out EA’s Origin from the requirements.

    Don’t support DRM!

    • Ryanza

        I was checking out the map for The Witcher 3 yesterday. Wowie.
        Playing Shadow of Mordor yesterday….very disappointing map size, it’s quite tiny, but the gameplay is great fun, and those kill moves just make you want to kill KILL KILL!

        Batman Arkham City + Mordor – Batman + Talion – Arkham City = Shadow of Mordor
        So many fantasy games right now….but The Witcher still looks to be the best.
        If only Bethesda decided to make a new Elder Scrolls instead of the abomination that is TESO, we really would’ve had a bunch of great games to choose from.

    • MrChinwag

      Witcher 3 gonna fail.. you wanna know why.. because so far for 2013 every game that LG rants about has fail ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Brady miaau

        Shadow of Mordor?

        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          Total fail that one. I mean, I can’t stop playing it, it’s just so terrible.

      • Captain JJ Underleyened

        Oh yes. Civ 5 really crashed and burned.

      • Viking Of Divinity

        and “Thomas was alone” is a broken, buggy mess that no-one has ever finished.

      • Mossel

        2013? You seem to be a year behind. xD

        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          Timetraveller O_O
          Maybe he can confirm Half Life 3 for us. Though I’m sure that failed too.

          • Skoobaz

            Dismal

      • Ryanza

        Rant – speak or shout at length in an angry, impassioned way.

        So if Lazygamer rants about it then maybe it was a bad game and that’s why it failed.

        I’m trying to think when Lazygamer ranted about The Witcher 3. Nope. I don’t recall one time.

        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          You win today.

      • Sk3tz0

        lol it’s a DonkeyTroll

    • Sageville

      Support DRM!

      • Captain JJ Underleyened

        And this on a Monday. You’re brave.

        • Sageville

          Oh that, it’s an auto-reply script…

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            LOL

      • Ryanza
        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          *bows

      • Mark Treloar

        Here’s a list for you:

        Steam
        Origin
        Uplay
        Battle.net

        • Sageville

          I’ve got all of these things, they’re awesome!

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            *they’re almost all awesome
            (excluding Uplay here)

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Oh, this is wonderful. I CAN PLAYS IT MOS MOS MOS

  • Admiral Chief 0

    WHEEEEE MY GPU is the recommended GPU!

    • Spaffy

      Same here.

  • Captain JJ Underleyened

    Yes
    *goes off to read requirements*

  • BacchusZA

    I more than meet the recommended, so I’m sorted ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I can live with Origin. I’d prefer not to, but so long as all it does is launch the first time I install a agame, and then pop up with that little “Hey, we’re giving this away today!” window when I first start my computer, I can live with it.

    uPlay, on the other hand?

    uPlay can fuck right off, and can take Ubisoft with it.

    • Captain JJ Underleyened

      What you said. Though I probably won’t be getting this on release.

      • Jedi Consular Kromas

        Already got mine in August.

        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          Wow. No, EA lost me after SimCity. But actually I just prefer the hack & slash gameplay of The Witcher a bit more.

          • Jedi Consular Kromas

            Gameplay was the only thing i disliked in Witcher. ๐Ÿ˜›

            Combat felt like a string of QTE’s.

            Still a great game though and already pre- ordered.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Fair enough. I had to make a choice. Can’t do both.

          • Mossel

            Although if you run in hacking and slashing you’re gonna have a bad time! I got owned so bad when I first started with W2, coming from a “click left mouse button to defeat Alduin” background. xD

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Hahaha. Oh, I’m going to die so badly, so often. I’m still to play W2, waiting for a Steam sale so I can get it in before W3 arrives.

          • Mossel

            Hehe it starts off quite difficult, but once you get the hang of it actually becomes disappointingly easy.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            By the way dude. Valiant Hearts, absolutely worth it. It’s a brilliant little game. Amazing soundtrack too.

          • Mossel

            Awesome! I really want to play that and Child of Light. The artwork and stories for both games just look amazing! I made some damage to ye ol’ backlog this weekend, so I’m at 62% complete! 18% to go then I get to purchase new games! lol

  • Captain JJ Underleyened

    I think I’m still sold for The Witcher rather (besides this being EA).
    The map of the Witcher 3 looks amazing, I love the lore and story more.

    • Brady miaau

      I think the games, based on the previous editions, are like Chalk and Cheese

      I want both

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        Both can be powdery and can come in many different shapes, colours, consistencies and tastes (does chalk come in different tastes)?

        • Skoobaz

          Not sure, at least different colors though

  • Kensei Seraph – Staff
    • Admiral Chief 0

      How much doth thee haveth?

      • Kensei Seraph – Staff

        2 gigs DDR2 RAM.
        (Refresh for pics)

        • Kensei Seraph – Staff

          Ok the pic didn’t post… seems Disquis has a 2MB limit and the pic was 4MB.
          Let’s try again.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            I have a box full of those modules, you want one?

          • Kensei Seraph – Staff

            Yes. Very much yes.

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Dude, there’s something wrong with your pc there.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Indeed, some wires needed ๐Ÿ˜›

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            No, not enough LEDs. What’s the point of having a windowed box without them?

          • Mark Treloar

            Because these were sold out

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            In related news, MGS cardboard box cosplay is the most popular right now.

          • Admiral Chief 0

            Ok, so slap in some LEDs, throw in a few wires, and all set to go

        • Admiral Chief 0

          Ouch

          (no pics…)

        • Brady miaau

          Ouch indeed.

        • Spaffy

          Eina dude, you need a whole new pc

          • Kensei Seraph – Staff

            Yes I do, although considering it will be 5 years old in Feb it’s doing pretty dam well.

  • Hammersteyn

    I hope my console can, will need to check the specs tonight. Want to make sure it can run at 1080p. Hopefully I wont need to update the graphics card, or the RAM, or the CPU, etc.

    • Sageville

      I checked the requirements for console, we need a console and also one of those controller things… hectic!

      • Hammersteyn

        Consoles really are becoming more and more like PC

    • Mark Treloar

      Dont work it can run at 1080p. You just have to run it in a 5″ window.

  • Rags

    Frostbite 3.

  • ReaperOfSquirrels

    Don’t be silly, of course it can…. not.

  • R1ker

    I wish EA will just let their games go back to Steam. But anyway – at least at the moment they are giving away Dragon Age Origins away for free for guys like me who never played it.

  • Captain JJ Underleyened

    Shadow or Mordor is 40GB to install. Biggest I’ve installed to date.

  • Zahira

    Dam you bioware and your 64 bit
