I think that highly unlikely – it just wasn’t good enough on its own to be of interest to anyone but diehard DA fans. Basically they would have ended up with a Jade Empire minus the interesting…

I’ve been following Shamus’ (and his collaborators’) comments on Mass Effect for quite some time, usually very interesting stuff. Like Shamus, I’m a space opera & general SF fan with a special…

Gaider seemed a bit nervous and flustered in this interview, and I got the impression he was both somewhat evasive and as honest as he dared to be about the DA2 development process.

So it was a…

I'm with Joxer here. There was a short discussion on a Dutch-language gamer forum about this phenomenon and the consensus is that other RPG's / fantasy games can be very disappointing.

Well, Kain never made it a secret that he really wanted The Witcher 2.5, not 3, and he has remained consistent in this regard.

I would have loved a Witcher 2.5, but I think I prefer what I got in…

DA2 was, I think, just the first half of a story that was abrogated because the DA2 team was given too little time, and the planned expansion was cancelled later. I remember to have read, and it's…

An extensive, but fair review. In the long run – once the bitterness and disappointment as well as the fanboyism has faded away - I think DA:I will make a fine subject for game design analysis. To me…

The TW3 NPC’s are mostly just extras, while the Skyrim NPC’s (apart from the guards perhaps) are actual NPC’s. If you translate Novigrad to a movie or a pen & paper session the NPC’s are just part of…

Sera can be fun, especially because of her banter with oh-so-serious Solas. Otherwise, she's very much a WTF? character.

However, I am getting really, really tired of remarks like this:

Sad to hear it. I know he fell ill during D:OS' development, but didn't expect this.

He'll be missed; a quirky guy and a fine composer.

Hopefully they're faster this time. Blood and Wine will come out in 2016, and I think the Redkit has to be available before that time. Would significantly improve and enhance the game's 'long tail'….

I've noticed; he's taken quite a few names from Dutch history, some of which are fairly obscure if you aren't a historian or history geek, let alone a foreign one. Sometimes he plays a bit with them,…

Yup, the wikipedia article refers to it as well. And I'm pretty sure I once read a legend about the Black Death era involving a cruel nobleman and his tower on an island.

For me, it's a provisional 9.5 out of ten. Absolutely wow, but with a number of relatively minor flaws. I never give a 10 anyway, nothing is perfect.
