Dragon Age Three (3)

The next game will be called Dragon Age III: Inquisition.
We won't be talking about the story of the game today. Though you can make some guesses from the title.
This game is being made by a lot of the same team that has been working on Dragon Age since Dragon Age: Origins. It's composed of both experienced BioWare veterans and talented new developers.
We are working on a new engine which we believe will allow us to deliver a more expansive world, better visuals, more reactivity to player choices, and more customization. At PAX East, we talked about armor and followers… Yeah, that kind of customization. We've started with Frostbite 2 from DICE as a foundation to accomplish this.


Dragon Age 3: Inquisition....

wait...

for...

If the leaks are true (as it appears) then this could be really cool.  Fingers crossed!

I wonder if next gen?

For all it's faults I loved the premise of 2 and I had a lot of fun with the main quest. Hopefully they can address some of the painfully obvious issues most people had with it.

Judging from their press release, it sounds like their aware of the issues and are more than ready to address them.

If the leaks are true (as it appears) then this could be really cool.  Fingers crossed!

I just looked up some of them, and if they are indeed true, this game is going to be bad-ass. I can't wait to hear more, they totally have me hooked already.

Damn, now I want to play Origins again.  What a great game!  Still, I can't stand the Mage's Circle section.  I wish we could just take that part of the game out!!

If you're playing on comp, there's a mod that let's you

Code: [Select]
skip the Fade section
which should make it a bit shorter.

Now I feel like I really should play 2. Heck, it's only $20 now. I should just go for it. I'm not sure I need another 60 hour game in my life, though. Hmmm.

Good news then, it's a third of that length for most people!

Sorry but 2 was bad enough to make me lose hope in this IP =/

DA2 in a nutshell

Code: [Select]
Templar butch: We need these mages locked up like lowly dogs
Mage dude: Hawke help us, we are but lowly law abiding mages. We'd never consider blood magic or a rebellion against the templars.
*2 seconds later*
Mage dude: BLOOD FOR THE OLD GOD!
*2 seconds later*
Mage dude: WE SHALL REVOLT!
*2 seconds later*
Templar butch: I killed all the mages... because this rock told me to.
*facepalm*

Merryl: Blood magic is good and I'll never get used by it.
Hawke: Blood magic is bad and you should feel bad.
Merryl: I'm not listening!
*2 seconds later*
Merryl: Oh no, I've just killed my whole village because of blood magic!
*faceplam*

20 hours!? I just did a quick search and it looks like the average is between 30-40 hours, with some a bit higher and just a few lower. I always end up on the high end, as I take my time with games. Not because I'm a completionist. I'm just slow.
I'll think about it.

Admittedly 20 hours DID seem to be more of an extreme case, but there's still the fact that for the most people it's a far shorter game than the first.

Of course, given how this seemingly recycles areas like crazy I'm guessing it only really has about 5-10 hours of worthwhile content anyway.

My clock was at 21 hours and I did everything.  But I go fast.  I also quite enjoyed Dragon Age II, where most thought it was lukewarm.
