Are you nuts?

I hope he's being sarcastic...

Funny though, the article picture is of Dragon Age: Origins (an amazing RPG) but BioWare just announced Dragon Age 3: Inquisition (quick time event, button mashing, dumbed down to the max.) Sorry I just had to, no sugar coating here. I think we all know what's coming.

I hope it's a return to form for Dragon Age, but I have a feeling you could be right Major.

Unfortunately it will be designed with controller in mind. just means it will never have the tactical game play of the original.

Hell even in Dragon age origins the console version was significantly dumbed down for console use. Since it was a known fact that controllers can never handle all the inputs required. The game on console featured far less mobs etc and was basically a hack and slash game. The real game was always on the PC.

Unfortunately they dumbed down Dragon age 2 with console style gameplay in mind. I expect more of the same with DA3. They just wont learn lol.

As nuts as he is... I fear that EA's with him on this one *facepalm*

It's like we all know what's coming, but we're too afraid to admit it... We're all hoping Bioware just makes a proper RPG game again and we don't have to worry about any tacked on MP modes.... year right, we're all in denial lol

Oh great. EA is making Frostbite 2 the next Unreal Engine 3. Next up is probably using it in their mobile games...

I would consider this DA2. That other thing was abominable. And I think he is trying to be funny.
NewMonday  +   1239d ago
they need to fix:

1)the dungeons
2)the decision making and it's significance to the story
3)usefulness of the loot
4)Relevancy of the party members
5)it should look better than a PS2 HD port at this point in the life span of the 360 & PS3
jeseth  +   1238d ago
DA2 did some good things. Had Origins not gone before it I think it would have been received better. It veered too far from what people were expecting but on its own DA2 was a great game.

I'm looking forward to DA3. Go back a little more towards the Origins roots but keep the battle system geered more toward the DA2 style and I think the fans will come back around.

Lets hope they can pull it out!

Riiiiiight. Because if there's one thing Dragon Age 2 was missing, it was multiplayer...

Yeah. Because multiplayer and party based games just don't mix. >___>

In fact, when I'm playing Borderlands, I always think to myself "if only my partners were AI and incompetent morons instead of actual people capable of thinking.

I wasn't expecting the Dragon Age Inquisition.
shodan74  +   1239d ago
Nobody expects the Dragon Age Inquisition!
Eamon  +   1239d ago
Damn you guys! I wanted to start it first!
Megaton  +   1239d ago
Oh you don't have to hope, it'll be there. EA's head honcho proudly stated that he will not greenlight games unless they have multiplayer components. Expect ruin.
Eamon  +   1239d ago
Didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition.
NYC_Gamer  +   1239d ago
Will DA3 be another casual experience from Bioware?
Carl_Shocker  +   1239d ago
Well lets just say if it is then thats it for shows you there in too deep for them to change back to what they were like.

I mean people are looking at DA3 as a way for Bioware to prove themselfs again, if they mess up then thats it, they blew it
CustardTrout  +   1239d ago
Hope it's like DA 1.
Dovahkiin  +   1239d ago
Let's all hope so, Bioware have it in them to make an amazing game. It's all in how much EA feel like holding them back.
RivetCityGhoul  +   1239d ago
the frostbite 2 engine? wow, well at least we know there wont be anyone complaining about the graphics
_-EDMIX-_  +   1239d ago
I predicted months ago that Dragon Age and the next Mass Effect (ie Next gen Mass Effect) would use the FrostBite 2 instead of Unreal 4. Happy to actually see that some of that prediction is coming true.

DivineAssault  +   1239d ago
See this? Bioware announces DA3 for PC,360,PS3.. Things like this assure that wii u will get limited attention from 3rd party devs.. Oh well, hope its good cuz i didnt care much for 2
NYC_Gamer  +   1239d ago
They shouldn't port it over to the Wii-U unless some type of comic book is included where the player could select story choices.We have to remember all of these games were built with the current platforms in mind.I'm sure EA/Bioware will port DA3 over to Wii-U just later.

DivineAssault  +   1239d ago
i get u but still.. AC3 is coming to it, black ops is coming to it, & a few others that are sooner to release.. I dont think it would be a problem if they wanted to do it.. ME3 is getting released w a comic, why not have that same team port it? GTA5 prolly aint goin on wii u either.. Its all assumption cuz it could change but as it stands, its not going on it.. Speculation on it being possible is exactly what happened with all the others.. The potential is there for great things to happen but falls short..

Err... there is no platform announced yet. Can you at least read the article?
ChunkyLover53  +   1239d ago
We really don't know anything about the game yet, it could be a next gen title as well. Seeing that the Wii U gets Mass Effect 3, I could see them getting this game too. I wouldn't count it out in the least.

Way too early to be complaining that the Wii U isn't listed as an option. The game is 16 months from release...
_-EDMIX-_  +   1239d ago
It actually really depends on weather Dragon Age III is next gen or not. ie the real next gen, ie PS4/720/PC.

If it is, its pretty clear it won't be on Wii U. If its on PS3/360, i see no reason why it shouldn't be on Wii U....same damn tech anyway so...
silkrevolver  +   1239d ago
Hope they pull a Devil May Cry and make the Third one better than the first, and WAY better than the second.
SonyNGP  +   1239d ago
Is it gonna have an ending that's gonna make people on the internet buttrage?
JellyJelly  +   1239d ago
Looking in this comment section it seems that just announcing a game is enough to make people on the internet buttrage.

Interesting. Frostbit, eh? EA forcing this on them.
banjadude  +   1239d ago
Obligatory: "Enchantment!!!"

Also, none of that BS with runecrafting from Dragon Age Awakening; they got really carried away with that option.
Oh, and please have a ton of storage space and/or storage chests, I'm a hoarder of armor and weapons!

It's a running gig so hell yeah!

It is kind of disappointing to continue the storyline of the second game which was, lets be honest, a huge let-down compared to Origins. What the heck happened with the Blight and the Grey Wardens anyways? I guess they REALLY wanted to go all Mass Effect on their one true old school RPG... I will be following the development of this closely.
banjadude  +   1239d ago
Yes, too much focus on the Templar vs Mage thing. I get that the Blight only happens once in a long time, but there's got to be other things to the Dragon Age universe than that.

OH, I forgot to mention before, bring back Origin style beginnings!
Pintheshadows  +   1239d ago
If Bodahn and Sandal are not in DA3 then Bioware will face the biggest backlash of all time.

After all, they are the most important characters in the DA games.

Wii U version? Who wants else wants one?
Trenta27  +   1239d ago
That would be pretty sweet with the gamepad. I'm game for it. =D
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1239d ago
Nobody wants one. Nobody is shelling out $300 for a PS3 that can't play blu-ray or the PS3's games. -_-
Parappa  +   1239d ago
I doubt anyone would want a Wii U version considering all of your choices from the first 2 games would carry over to this one.
Getowned  +   1239d ago
Not me, I'm not planning to get an WiiU, but a PS4 version would be nice ;D

Damn it Sony announce the PS4 already!! give us a Next-Gen Gaming multi media BEAST!!! with uber graphics,CPU and mega amounts ram!! I'm ready.. WiiU makes me want a PS4 lol , sorry Nintendo :[

PS4, PS4, PS4!!!!!!!!! PSIV!!!!!

stragomccloud  +   1239d ago
That would be cool if they released the other 2 games, but without them it's kind of like Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U.
Tultras  +   1239d ago
Looking forward to this game, I enjoyed BOTH the DA games.
PersonaCat  +   1239d ago
Really mixed feelings about this... Anyway, lets see how much choices actually matter in this one. The things you did in 1 had little to no influence in DA2 except for a few cameos. I won't be fooled by a sexy CG trailer again.
SuicidalTendencies  +   1239d ago
I have no faith in Bioware anymore. As long as they are with EA I expect the worse.
sjaakiejj  +   1239d ago
I'm looking forward to seeing more about this title, including when I can expect it to release. Happy to hear it's finally been officially announced, although it's not much of a surprise.
FCOLitsjustagame  +   1239d ago
Might go on my get cheap list...maybe. Right now its on my *yawn i wonder what else is coming out" list. The 2nd one was bad, I dont really care to revisit that storyline and ME3 had some bad writing to. Slower RPGs actually need a story people want to play (and replay).
SageHonor  +   1239d ago
Great news. Can't wait to hear more. Won't put my expectations up too high though. This is it for me and im sure alot of other people.
MxRBrobaFett  +   1239d ago
Preorder now and get the real mass effect 3 ending for only 79.99 more!
Relientk77  +   1239d ago
I am definitely keeping this on my radar
ALLWRONG  +   1239d ago
Why do I feel more worried than excited?
SeraphimBlade  +   1239d ago
I'll keep an eye out. I recently got around to Dragon Age II, and I see why some people didn't like it, and Bioware cut WAY too many corners, but I'm really enjoying it, myself. I heard a lot of the trouble may have spawned from them simultaneously working on ME3 and The Old Republic. So, who knows? Maybe they'll get their groove back when they're all on one project again.
Qrphe  +   1239d ago
You can only impress me at this point Bioware. You're lucky I don't believe in points of no return thus you can't dissapoint me any further.
Me_My  +   1239d ago
Sweet, I thought they wouldn't come out with another one after people complained about the last one but I thought the last one was the best in the series, I hope they keep it the same as the last one in the 3rd installment.
Lucreto  +   1239d ago
Can't wait for this I love Dragon Age series. Yes even the second game.

They might be for next generation consoles that is why they haven't shown anything.

I foresee dark days for Dragon Age fans. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
Lucreto  +   1239d ago
Pity they cancelled the dlc for DA2 as it seems to fit into the title for this one.
Getowned  +   1239d ago
Sounds good, and the use of Frostbite 2 has me really intrested.

Destructiable environments anyone ? JK! lol
banjadude  +   1239d ago
That would be pretty interesting. Being able to collapse the ceiling on some Hurlock Emissaries would make them less of a pain.

"a great story with choices that matter, a massive world to explore, deep customization and combat that is both tactical and visceral."

They also claimed choices mattered with ME3 ending.
