I am sure EA can force it to squeeze out one more "live service" turd before the corpse is cold...Forget about it. Bioware is dead, move on.
It's so fucking sad. Five of the games in my personal best games of all time are Bioware (KotOR, Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect trilogy) and to see them being flushed down the toilet due to mismanagement and greed is just depressing.I am sure EA can force it to squeeze out one more "live service" turd before the corpse is cold...
I liked it, too. It had some bloat and "get out of the Hinterlands" but overall good.Dragon Age Inquisition was fucking awesome.
Hoping for a 4th. But let's see.
DA:O to DA:2 was a real showing of what EA does to a company.This is rather unfortunate.
DA:O is one of my favorites of all time.
I've played and beaten that game so many times; once upon a time I became obsessed and started to read fanfics about it.
I don't fully understand the DA:I hate, I rather enjoyed it, epic plot, godlike powers, party combat, a castle to run and minor kingdom management, and an actual last level with boss fight that made sense.I enjoyed Inquisition. It was DA:2 that I hated. I guess the graphics/animation were okay, but as a game it was awful. I kept waiting for the mission where you finally go to do something and the next thing I knew the game was over.
Firmly EA for that, repeating maps in DA2 where multiple times worse than any prior bioware title.The repeating maps were in Mass Effect also, and that was made before DA:O. So I would not blame EA for that.
Same. I liked it a lot. Prior to the Witcher 3, I thought it was the best RPG of that era. It wasn't perfect, but it's the type of game I enjoy. Ratings were strong, too. 85-90% for most sites and early user reviews were good...until everyone decided that that hate-boner reviews were fun. That's one of those weird games where people decided to dogpile it after the fact. Tons of people in this forum liked it when it was new. Now it's like nobody will admit it.I don't fully understand the DA:I hate, I rather enjoyed it, epic plot, godlike powers, party combat, a castle to run and minor kingdom management, and an actual last level with boss fight that made sense.
I Hated almost everything about dragon age 2. Near the end, there was an event where you got to intervene and help some grey wardens. They mention having to leave the area afterward to deal with some threat with darkspawn or whatnot and I thought to myself.... TAKE ME WITH YOU !!!!!!! I have never felt so trapped in a lesser world.DA:O to DA:2 was a real showing of what EA does to a company.
Independent Bioware probably spent more time on the DA:O unique race/class origin stories, than EA:Bioware spent on the entire game of DA2.
Those unique Origin stories were one of the coolest things about the game, to get to see the world through multiple view points. I played all the origin stories to the common point, before continuing with full play-through. You get to see Dwarven society from perspectives of both a Noble born Dwarf, and serf, you see Elven Society from city-ghetto dweller, and from living free in the forest, etc...
Most memorable thing about DA2 was ridiculous repeating maps. I am sure you end up in the same dungeon, a dozen times before the game is over.
I'm excited if for no other reason than we finally get to go to Tevinter. A place that has been teased since the beginning. A place where mages are dominant. Guess what class I always gravitate towards? Finally, a land built around my ideal escapist fantasy.It's hard to be excited.
