BioWare appears to be just a day away from revealing Dragon Age 2, officially, going by the role-playing game developer's Twitter tease. Or was it today, when EA and BioWare officially said that Dragon Age 2 is in development?
Top 5 all time for me.
i loved dragon age...
I liked it except for the fact that stuff didn't respawn when you visited an area a second time.
I went back to the game recently and really enjoyed it. Dragon Age is the sort of title that you have to invest in - it's characters and lore - before you can appreciate it. Having just finished Origins yesterday, I look forward to the sequel immensely. Really it seems to be a non-stop flood of WRPGs and JRPGs lately - I'm in Heaven. I'm hoping that the next one is more "open-world" and less "instanced" (which a lot of Bioware games tend to be - DA reminded me of a more epic Neverwinter Nights 1/2). I'd love to see the DA mechanics in a party-based, Oblivion-style game. THAT would be epic. POSSIBLE SPOILER: Pretty sure Morrigan and her "old-God" child are going to be heavily tied into the sequel (villains perhaps?).
So if Dragon Age was the successor to Baldurs Gate... and Baldurs Gate 2 was absolutely epic... Will that make Dragon Age 2 absolutely epic?
Old Republic MMO comming to console. The only problem with that it that I don't pay monthly fees. They would have to have an acceptable flat rate to get me. May be and extra $30 for the year.
except the problem with that is... they don't want you the console gamer for this game (TOR). They want the pc gamer or wow player.
I would love another dragon age. That was a surpise hit for me. But I dont really see what they could inprove, anyone got any suggestions.
More variety in the missions. DA was a lot like ME2, because the character spent a good deal of time recruiting groups to fight in a major battle. But the missions in DA were very repetitive, though fun. I would also like to see better visuals but it's not mandatory.
bring back morrigan instead of leaving her out for all DLC for no real reason, just an unexplained child
Voice acting for your character would be nice.
# Graphics # Animations # More customization # Larger world # More quests # More variations of quests There's quite a lot they could do. Anyways, this is a pretty damn good announcement.
I have yet to play Dragon Age and I bought it at launch. It come out at a bad time for me. FF XIII and WKC are taking a lot of time.
I don't know if I'm alone in this, but I hated the first one. I found that the graphics and controls weren't that great and that the gameplay was just boring.
Did you play on PS3? It's a completely different experience as far as gameplay and difficulty on the PC. That's the definitive version because it's in the style of Neverwinter Nights and Baulder's Gate which were PC only games. I highly recommend trying it for PC
Ya, I played it on ps3. I don't think I'll try it again as I have other things I need to buy, but I'll give #2 a chance for sure. Edit: I agree with clownbelt, though I wish demons souls had had a better co-op mode.
I'm with you Psfan999. After playing Demon's Souls, I couldn't get into the awful battle system in Dragon Age. If Dragon Age would have been online(MMO style without payment), I think I would have liked it a lot
Awful battle system? Have you ever played a WRPG before? What were you expecting?
No you are not alone and I played it on PC maxed out. I could not stop falling asleep on the game. An this is coming from someone who is all about a good story. The gameplay was extremely slow and boring to watch unfold. Some of the random banter among your party members was funny at times. I couldn't be bothered to play past a couple of hours as it was like a sleeping spell every time I touched it.
To each their own...I loved it but I could see how some people might find it a tad slow
Huh I don't know what to make of this. Liked the first one a bit, didn't play Origins and haven't gotten the DLC. Though being as it's bioware I'm assuming one could expect great things to come.
sigh So many rpg's I hope this doesn't come for a while. Fallout vegas is going to take serious work to pound through.
Enjoyed the first one a bit but never finished it.
Really loved the first one but only around half way through going to go back and finish it soon.
i still gotta buy awakening
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! I haven't even played Dragon Age 1 yet! But I never planned to.... :P
lmao nice one
I was really hyped for DA. I've been a big bioware fan since BG 1 and KOTOR. However when i actually played the game i was dissapointed. The thief class and fighter class were too similar and felt not as clearly defined as the mage class. It was fun for a bit but i never even felt the need to complete it. I would buy DA2 if the classes were more clear cut, yes i know there were specializations, but the base classes, other then mage, needed more deffinition and needed to feel more unique. What i am really hoping that they announce tomorrow is an expansion for ME2. They did an expansion for DA but i never bought it. I would def buy a ME2 expansion however.
The warrior was to tank and keep enemies attention and off your allies. The rogue is to do as much damage as possible The mage is a caster to do damage/heal. They were fairly different if you played them in the way they were meant to imo
YEEEEEAAAAAAAAH! Happy dance time!
Dragon Age two I would love to see...
I hope it has improvements ...but still stay rpg
Already? Damn I need to catch up I haven't even played the first yet.
I heard this game is kind of like Oblivion. So I might give it a try.
Dragon age is almost nothing like Oblivion (totally different battle system) but they're both great games.
Oblivion and Dragon Age are great games, and I am glad Dragon Age 2 is coming out.
Ugh. The first one sucked. I don't get why they're even making a sequel. And of course, this is GameInformers August Cover, and not Elder Scrolls V. :(
Dragon Age: Origins was Adventurous! 1 of my favorite RPG's ever, so I'm excited! All I'm wishing for now is an announcement of the next (Elder Scrolls) & (Demons Souls)! Bethesda, From Software....m counting on ya! Game on!
