Release of the Week: Dragon Age: Origins

GrE writes, "Nestled in between hits like Uncharted 2, Borderlands, Modern Warfare 2 and Left 4 Dead 2, it is quite possible that you've missed hearing about Dragon Age: Origins. Even if you haven't heard of it, you've probably heard of games such as the instant classics Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and Mass Effect. These games all come from the RPG masters at BioWare, and Dragon Age: Origins is their next epic tale..."

I gotta say, as excited as I was for Mass Effect from Bioware, this just doesn't do it for me.

Perjoss3273d ago

some people just cant get into 'swords & sandals'.

I guess it's just what you prefer, some prefer the sci-fi, I don't really care myself, as long as we get a good story and fun combat.

Nihilism3273d ago

I don't usually get into medieval style games, but this game does it for me in ways even the mrs can't ;)

bgrundman3273d ago

I would love to see this succeed, but I have seen barely any advertising presence for this game at all. Could it be DOA?

roblef3273d ago

Yeah, hard to tell their game plan. Not seen much besides developer interviews. Hmmm.

wondroushippo3273d ago

There are online ads for it.

Roper3163273d ago

I see a TV commercial a few times a day for this game since about a week ago. MS must have paid for the commercial because it only lists the 360 & PC as the platforms for the game.

vudu3273d ago

Yesterday during NFL games I saw commercials for this game about 10 times. Advertising is definitely out there for it.

I'm not sure what to think about this one. It could be the one that redefines the fantasy RPG space, or completely mediocre.

Montrealien3273d ago

redefine? never. What this game does well is that it authentic. And that`s why I love it.

Hey can you help me here. Give me some insight into this game since you are playing it already. I'm on the fence and could use some help. FYI I loved Mass Effect, although it had some issues. I also love a good story in games. Is this worth getting? Some details would be nice. Thanks!

Montrealien3273d ago

I don`t know what else to say about this to help you understand it other then say that if you enjoyed Kotor, Jade empire or Mass effect, you should truly enjoy this game. It`s alot like their previous console games, but in a fantasy setting. And as I said, it is a very authentic straight forward mature fantasy story, think Lord of the rings but with sex and violence.

The reviews should start coming in and you will be able to read up on it alot more, but I can say with full confidence that if you are looking for a good bioware western rpg, look no further, you will have hours of pleasure with this game.

nycredude3273d ago

Thanks man. I'm going to pick it up tonight then. Can't wait. I was excited about the game before but disappointed I haven't seen more info about it.

I bet this will be a big hit with the old Baldur's Gate fans of old.

darkroomdemons3273d ago

Except only the PC version employs the easter egg of the Baulder's Camera. Fail!

Sp1deyluvr3273d ago

I love Baldur's gate! :)

I was considering watching the trailer for it last night. Maybe now I will. I'm kinda still on the fence.

Julie3273d ago

I saw a lot of videos , it looks nice won't be a bad game but i believe it is a bit short :(

GentleGiant3273d ago

Most reviews so far say it is at least 80 hours and even more than that if you really get into it. :) And then you must of course try out the other classes and back story´s.

Julie3273d ago

80 hours! nice ty for the info , i am happy then! i wish to see Minsc and Boo in there to be completely crazy hehe =)
