It won't really come as much surprise, but a tweet from Bioware developer Alistair McNally today has spilled the beans on the next installment of the Dragon Age series.
Hitting the stores in six months. Now with almost four different locations, 86 side quests, no main quest and three homosexual dwarves. Alright, actually I did enjoy the first 15ish hours of DA2 :), but then I got fed up with running through the same recycled locations over and over again and stopped playing. I might buy DA3 if vast improvements are made in that area.
Yea the recycled environs were the second biggest disappointment I had with DA2, first was the removal or simplifying of many things unexpectedly. Still it was a good game, much more simple and smaller than Origins, but still good.
I hope Dragon Age 3 has even more cutscenes, less exploration, and more streamlined combat! /s
No rush Bioware, take your time. No really, please do. :]
I played about 15 hours of DA2 and I haven't played it since....sadly, it's the first Bioware game I didn't love...I'll pick it up eventually probably mid July but it just did nothing for me as I didn't get involved in the story at all. It felt like a bad book that just dragged on. Still have very strong trust in the company of Bioware but not as much as I used to as far as Dragon Age..... ME3 is still a day 1 as is the old republic but they lost one Day 1 buy franchise from me
.....and it should be out next week. Seriously Bioware has found the magic COD technique so I'm assuming they will just change the characters clothes, re-paint some buildings, re-phrase some dialogues, make a new box art and presto...Dragon Age 3. Bioware needs to slow down. Edit....Lots of post referring to The Witcher 2 because TW2 is freaking AWESOME! If you got a half decent PC i highly recommend it.
it will feature a single room with a single enemy who respawns forever, neither of you will actually move and there will be only one attack, the single player campaign will take at least 12 hours, all of it will consist of tapping the X or A button. they will license the fluid engine from the developers of hydrophobia and that will allow the room to slowly fill with blood. they will market it as a perfect distillation of the dragon age experience.
I'm glad they're working on Dragon Age III, but they better not screw this one up. Give it the same magic as Dragon Age Origins.
This is what happens when big companies like EA and Activision begin to monopolize the industry. It's only going to get a lot worse. It's a shame to see Bioware slowly going the way of Westwood Studios. Remember how EA ran C & C into the ground? I still have some faith in Bioware left, but I can't help but worry about Mass Effect 3. I'm sure it'll sell well, but I have the slight inclination that it is going to be far more linear than we'd expect.
