Martin Gaston of TheGameReviews gives his verdict on the rumor of a Dragon Age sequel for next year, and considers the likelihood of Insomniac producing games on more than just Sony platforms.
Dragon Age 2 seems pretty certain to me which is excellent news! Loved the original and can't wait for the expansion pack.
It's not a matter of if - just when.
I thought it was like Mass Effect with boring fighting.
Surely you must mean the other way around. Every encounter in ME:2 was virtually entirely the same, you could ignore giving your companions tasks in everything but the hardest difficulty and just play it lone gunner FPS style. DA:0 had way more tactical depth, you had to actually use combinations of abilities if you wanted to survive difficult encounters and you had way more to choose from. The problem with it was more that some dungeons went on for-----ever, and even with the variety on offer it got boring in the end when you just resorted to some cookie cutter tactic you'd worked out.
I could go for Dragon Age 2. Still need to finish all the DLC though.
Interesting decision by Sony. Shows they aren't quite as blinkered as I thought.
Martin’s Verdict: False Can we stop with the BS now please? Ahh... Who am I kidding? MGS4 is still going multiplat soon, right? Pffft... >_>
Here he comes, look out. We are dependent on you.
Bioware said they had 2 years WORTH of DLC planned, and Awakening is a big expansion. So my bet would be on Dragon Age 2.
They spend 5 years on the first one, i would love a sequel, but i do not want it to be rushed.
Isomnica going multi never going to happen where did this rumour start they said before they loyal to sony and love working on sony titles and am sure they would find hard working for 360 with the 7.2gb space compared to 25gb-50gb disc ?
To be a bit off topic I find it funny it says... "there’s a very real chance I might not be physically able to embark on another 80 hour fantasy marathon come next year"....makes me wonder how he got 80 hours out of dragon age,I took my time and finished all the sidequests and it only took me 38 hours.
If Dragon Age 2 mixes the best elements from the first with more Mass Effect-like combat, I'd be down.
I wouldn't be surprised if Dragon Age 2 makes an appearance at E3 this year...
Dragon Age 2 isn't a rumor, EA has confirmed it. :P Or rather, they've confirmed a "new Dragon Age for 2011"- may not be DA2.
@8 I'm on my third character, if that helps your judgement.
I suspect 2011 will be the year everyone's fawning over Dragon Age 2 screenshots, gameplay footage, etc., but that it will actually come out in early 2012. (Or right at Christmas 2011, at the earliest.)
