I just got this game for my PC the other day and I was loving it. Great story, decent graphics, plenty of nude patches, and forgiving gameplay. Everything that made the game great. Of course the gameplay was forgiving due to the fact that I was still in the noob area of the game. Once I ventured forth into the big world of Ferelden and started doing the main quest in redcliffe, I got hit in the face by the omgwtfbbqIpwnj00 stick... hard. After dying about 10 times trying to defeat the seemingly endless horde of undead coming from the castle in redcliff, I decided to change the difficulty to easy. After the 5th time after wiping on easy, I was forced to put clothes on Morrigan. You see, after Morrigan joined my party I decided that I'd keep her in my party and put up with her constant bitching as long as she goes through the entire game in her birthday suit. Pretty reasonable I thought. It is a damn shame that the game forced me to go against this agreement and actually clothe the woman. Anyway, after like 2 hours of frustration I finally beat that portion and moved onto the castle. I was easily owning the dudes in the castle so I decided to place the difficulty back at normal. Almost immediately after changing the difficulty I sprung a trap and got pwned by like 6 undead dudes that seemingly came out of the woodworks. I reloaded my last save and then got owned by the first group of enemies that you run into. The ones I easily dispatched on easy. Why is this game so hard? Does my gear just suck? Or do I have to play it strictly like I would a mmo? When I say that I mean do I have to rest up after every battle, actively check for better gear, and actually worry about crafting? In single player games I never go looking for gear and just use whatever the game gives me in my travels. Same goes for potions.
