yeah but with all the good people gone from Bioware and their games after Dragon Age Origins horrible who really cares?

Mass Effect 2 came out after DAO and it was a good but it was not Bioware standards for quality rpg they are known for. DA2 lol enough said there. Mass Effect 3, just after you think an rpg could be an less watered down they manage to do it even more and still pretend it's an RPG. Combat was worse than ME2 and well everyone knows how horrible the ending was then the mockery of an "alternate ending" or in reality a slideshow....un-needed multiplayer, broken promises, is what bioware has become. DA3 is already going down the same path as both DA2 and ME3.

I hope the founders that quit, the devs old devs that left and the writers that wrote the amazing stories start a new company and bring back the quality western rpg that is so hard to find now-a-days.

I said this like a year ago!

EA's business model:

Every Game was to either use the Frostbite 2 or be developed by Bioware or Both!

EA is going with name recognition strategy to sell games.

I'm pretty sure EA are the ones to blame for the rushed Bioware games. Not Bioware.

Summons751755d ago

While I can a agree to a point that ea got this money is more important than fans idea in Their head, Bioware is still the only one to blame because they fell for it instead of standing up for their ideas and ambitions.

For the last time.. Mass Effect is a shooter with rpg elements. Not the other way around! Yes even the first one was the same percentage action to rpg you just didn't notice because the combat was crap! There was no deeper rpg elements in the first game than in the sequels!

Frostbite 2 is impressive engine. While it does good in its PS3/X360 titles. The PC really shows its full potential at the moment. I can't wait to see what next generation consoles do with it. The engine itself is impressive.

Not sure if games coming will be impressive or not, but EA will learn they have to try to actually sell their games.

In regards to your second comment: do you think they had a choice? I don't think they fell into EA's arms out of love. It may have been a good financial move on their part.

Yes, I hope Dragon Age 3 uses this.

Skate-AK1755d ago

They all ready announced that it is using Frostbite 2.

A7XEric1755d ago

Thank god. Unreal Engine looks like ass.

Dynasty1755d ago

Not really.. It's just dated.

Kennytaur1755d ago

Everything looks like plastic in UE3.

A7XEric1753d ago

Hence my original comment. Back in 2007 it was impressive, but ME2 and ME3 looked hardly cutting edge for their times.

Is Frostbite 3 going to come next-gen?

Detoxx1755d ago

Frostbite 2 was made for next gen

DeadlyFire1755d ago

The answer is yes, but not first the first few waves of titles. Likely in a few more years it will come. Frostbite 2 is by no means a slacker. Just let Dragon Age 3 show you its full visuals. :P

Pretty smart move, besides the sports games, almost all the studios will be using Frosbite. Which will make it easy for teams to help out one another and with so any engineers working on one engine any advancement one studio makes, another one can benefit.

hazardman1755d ago (Edited 1755d ago )

did you forget unreal engine4 it gonna be
pretty sick.. and square has an impressive engine too

rickybadman1755d ago

I was not talking about Frostbite v. Any other engine.

I was just saying that is was smart of EA to have all their studios working with one engine for logistical and business reason. Before the switch to Frosbite, all their major studios were using different tech.

Internal studios can now help each other out, that's it. Plus they wouldn't have to pay millions in licensing fees to Epic.

Smart move all around
