Finally ... seems it'll be more like Inquisition than Origins ...
* sigh * ... which isn't bad ... but DA: Origins was special

Michiel198987d ago

I honestly quite liked inquisition, but the game never gives you a single moment to breathe. The map was filled with so much useless bullshit collectibles that it didn't give me an actual sense of exploration, I was just following markers on the map. The world looked quite good although it didn't give me a sense of an open world that I could explore and I think I also never took the time to appreciate the world because it was so cluttered.

Loved inquistion, hated some of the exploration

Crows9087d ago

Inquisition to me was the worst dragon age. Definitely the most monotonous.

People hated dragon age 2 but each chapter in the city was unique in its storylines and outcomes until the very ending. I didn't care that the ending choice wasn't great because every single choice between the beginning and the end mattered greatly.

Dragon age origins was definitely special with a lot of unique choices and none of the emptiness you find throughout the majority of inquisition.

Personally I disliked Origins but loved 2 and liked Inquisition.

esherwood87d ago

Felt like the whole game was fetch quest

Crows9087d ago

It absolutely was. I'm bewildered by the praise that game gets.

Michiel198986d ago

The combat was really fun and even though the main quest was pretty mediocre, the character storylines were incredibly well done. I think a lot of people also liked the keep and the decision making of it, although it became quite grindy fast.

Yui_Suzumiya86d ago

It won Game of the Year after all. Alot of people forget that. I don't think it's better than two but it was alright.

jznrpg86d ago

I would prefer it to be like the first game but I figured it wouldn’t be as that was so long ago. Inquisition was decent but had some issues. I’ll have to play it to see if this is a good , bad or in between .If it’s a buggy mess like Jedi Survivor still is I’ll wait until it’s cheaper like I did with Survivor.

Can’t wait for the announcement of the announcement of the announcement, which is followed by a release announcement + the delay announcement. HYPED!

Pretty sure Silk Song and Dragon Age are going smoothly. The other 2 can be assumed to be quietly cancelled knowing their publishers and Metroid will most likely be shown off this year.

Michiel198946d ago

Dragon Age going smoothly??? Directors leaving, people leaving in general, terrible working conditions....not sure how you define smoothly.

Chocoburger47d ago

I remember in 2017 when Nintendo showed off the Metroid Prime 4 logo, and some Nintendo defenders claimed "Just because they only showed a logo, doesn't mean that's all they've worked on for the game."

As history has proven, they were wrong. Nintendo showed off a logo back in 2017 because that's literally all they had.

-Foxtrot46d ago

I think Beyond Good and Evil 2 can stay there unless they are going to just rename it to a new IP

DOMination-46d ago

Pretty sure BG&E2 is dead at this point - along with the other game Ancel was working on before he left - I think it was called WILD. Anyone remember that from a PS conference years ago?

Dreadwolf isn't in development hell anymore and is finally getting its reveal in the summer - since 2016 the game has been scrapped and restarted three times but its been going pretty well since the last reboot when EA finally allowed BioWare to just get on with making a single player game.

I'm not sure Perfect Dark is in development hell either - like it could be but we haven't really heard much to suggest either way - imo they just showed the trailer off when the game was still in pre-production. Xbox were desperate for anything and this is all they had at the time. And the reason we haven't heard anything since is just because it's in normal development and games take 5 years to make. The help from a support studio was typically overblown on N4G because nearly every game has this.

I just need...Deep Down.
Please, it's been years!

Dragon Age: Dreadwolf Fans Should Be Prepared for Drastically Different Combat

Dragon Age has never had consistent combat across its games, and players shouldn't expect anything familiar with Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.

I don't entirely agree with this.
While we should always expect some kind of changes I don't see why we fans should accept any large departure that doesn't credit to what we have become used to. In a series, changes should only be being made if it IMPROVES the experience. Not for change sake, not for chasing trends. If DA:D doesn't have a full controllable party that is a very big minus in my book. All previous games have had this key feature.

With the latest Final Fantasy 16 also pulling this maneuver it would hurt losing another tactical party based rpg within the AAA space. FF16 barely felt like an rpg and i really don't want that for Dragon Age. If they really built this game without tactical party control then they should take the whole concept back to the drawing board.

BrainSyphoned58d ago

Does anyone that remembers the last good Dragon Age work there still? Face facts, the chefs that cooked the meal you remember are gone and Bioware doesn't have the recipe. It will be different because they are incapable of producing the quality they were known for a decade or two ago, kinda like Bethesda.

forevercloud300058d ago

I really fear you are right about this. I would be truly heartbroken. Dragon Age is one of my top 3 game series. Its been such a long gap since inquisition, so many layoffs, hell even David Gaider left. What even is Bioware anymore?

I hope the huge success of a crunchy tactical party based rpg like Baldurs Gate 3 has shaken these devs who've lost faith in their original rpg stylings. I absolutely do not want every future Rpg to be a God of War/Witcher 3/Elden Ring clone. Those games have their place, but being the maestro of the battlefield, seeing your team combine skills in flawless coordination, offers a very different kind of satisfaction.

just_looken57d ago

The dragon age keep still only trilogy mine ME were a choice you made game 1 affects game 3 has been on life support for 7 years now last 2 is not even working right on pc its basically doa :( shows there current view on the series.

Golden goose out back having a slow death

just_looken57d ago (Edited 57d ago )

I love thhe dragon age 3 combat system right up there with witcher 3 for me but i know any new bioware game is not from the same team and made over 20people have mental breakdowns with alot of them quitting. So my expectations are very very very very very low from this team.

I mean the mass effect teaser is fem shep as a fashion model wearing a jacket in space? wtf

shinoff218357d ago

Ff 16 definitely felt like it was missing the rpg factor
