Default Dragon Age: Inquistion



Quote:
Explore a vast, fantasy world at the brink of catastrophe in Dragon Age™: Inquisition, a next-generation action RPG, where your choices shape and drive the experience. In this upcoming video game from BioWare, makers of Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age: Origins, you’ll make your mark in an expansive, story-driven open world filled with complex characters, challenging combat and difficult decisions.

A cataclysmic event has plunged the land of Thedas into turmoil. Dragons now darken the sky, casting a shadow of terror over a once-peaceful kingdom. Mages have broken into an all-out war against the oppressive Templars. Nations rise against one another. It falls to you to restore order as you lead the Inquisition and hunt down the agents of chaos - your choices will forever change the Dragon Age.

-------

Yet another beloved franchise of mine going the route of open world. It's just so sad that developers think that having something "open-world" is some kind of step forward for a franchise.

Games have been open world or not for a long time now, and having this element doesn't make a game better. Certain games fit the style better, while others don't. Most RPGs tend to be less better for it, because it helps to lose focus on the story. See the Elder Scrolls games for the perfect example. While that game is fun to play, the storyline has never been the draw for it, so the open world style never got in the way.

Oh well, I was a big fan of DA: Origins and DA2, so I'll try and remain optimistic...even with the open world announcement.

"Next generation"? As in, I have to buy a new system?

Ugh...

Just another stupid idea on top of the thousands already made by Bioware.

Good thing I gave up on that franchise after 2.

I hate the combat in Dragon Age 1.

Why? At a certain point your characters are so powerful that most of the combat is on auto pilot.

I haven't progressed far into the game because I feel that the combat feels lifeless. I'm sure as the game goes on it get's better, but I have never felt such boredom while pressing the square button.

Also I hate the idea of having battles on "auto" battle.

I've completed the game and not reached that stage.
I guess that's what I get for building a ranger/archer

It has been awhile since I played number one but I had an arcane warrior that used a spirit spell that would blow up most small mobs with one shot and most of the trolls in like three. Dragons were the only thing I really had to pay attention too.

If you don't want it on auto battle then Dragon's Age is probably not for you. Part of the fun for me was figuring out how to set the other two characters tactics so that I never had to switch to them. I thought it was fun to make them play like semi-decent players on their own. lol

Have you played isometric 3D RPG, pause/real-time type games before?

Couldn't resist the urge any longer and popped in DA1. Liking it so far, even if the graphics have aged a bit.

Got my female city elf amazon to Ostagar for now, with the lovely name of Tir Konai (taken from Callista Skip's Triskelion's Reign furry fantasy novel; love that character). She doesn't take shit when protecting her friends, as evidenced by butchering half a castle to save her friends from a drunken, rape-hungry noblemen gang. (Don't look at me like that, I wanted to have a pretty wedding; I even equipped the wedding ring).

It's a damn good thing I uninstalled a lot of large content yesterday, because the DLC (have the Ultimate Edition, so I have the spare disc) takes up a piss-ton of space. Still, looking forward to playing some of it, perhaps even all.

Kinda disappointed the elves get royally dicked over in origins here, being little better than slaves and fodder. Man, humans are such racist dirtbags. I'm gonna fix that, like Dr. King!
