Dragon Age: Inquisition Patches

A week ago today, my PS4 downloaded the Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch 4 update. Just read the release notes yesterday and saw that it would fix the damnable glitch that kept me from discovering all the regions in the Exalted Plains. So I loaded up my finished game save, went to Exalted Plains, and put that shit to bed 😉

I realize that PC players got this fix last month, but for us console players, it was a longer wait. Bioware says their “primary focus was on fixing bugs, particularly ones that blocked progression or hampered the player experience.” Too bad they had to go and fix the influence exploit, too. Boo.

Of course, then there’s PATCH 5!!!!!! Read the post that went up today: Introducing the DAI Patch 5 Beta Program, Featuring the Black Emporium. And what do you know?

In Skyhold, we’re adding party storage to the Undercroft—a new feature that many players asked for and we’re happy to finally add.

YAYAYAYAYAY! Now it’s just a matter of waiting for it to be reality… I won’t recap the whole post, but lucky PC gamers can sign up for the Beta soon. There are a lot of interesting changes and improvements.

Checking save data.


Haven’t played Dragon Age in a while and thought I’d tune up the old PS3 tonight–start in on Awakening again. You know, get all amped up for Inquisition.

But I’m stuck at “Checking save data.” I remember this being a problem before, but it always cleared up eventually (read: 5 minutes later) or was fixed with a hard reset. Now I’ve been staring at this screen for 15 minutes and have already tried resetting 3 times. I feel like blasting something into oblivion. See:

This is how I feel. Blast you!!!!

I need something to do for the next two and half hours before I get into some late night UAT for a software release and now, in my usual stubborn way, I am determined that it will be playing Awakening. Even though I have dozens of other games and 3 other systems to play them on.
