Bloody hell. I'm trying not to get excited about this because the last couple of bioware games have really disappointed me. They're making it hard with all of these ace announcements though. It's like they're running down my "wants" list and ticking them off, one by one.

I'm definitely playng a quanari. Then a dwarf. Just because, horns and beards rock.

The Qunari were the only thing I liked about DA2 but I don't think I care to play as one.

Very happy about the camera but I'm still being very cautious about this game.

Yeah, playing as a Qunari is not something that appeals to me. I'd rather see new classes.

It's so far away at this point, and the last was so full of fail that I have zero confidence in this at all. One thing is for certain: I'll be letting others take the plunge before I do on this product.

Now this is great news. I tell myself: "do not get hopes up", but playing different races like qunari and confirmation of a proper camera angle. Those kind of things put a positive aura on this project and I admit that I'm indeed quite excited of dragon age once again, never thought it was possible after the giganctic dissapointment of da2. I'll wait more hands on previews etc though

Well, consider this game a chance for redemption for Bioware.

They're mindful of the predecessor's design decisions that earned the wrath of fans and will be trying their best to win them back with this one.

Good news! I am not excited about being a Qunari myself, but this is another sign of improvement.
Give me an isometric camera and stats-based dialog, and I will be completely satisfied.

what's exciting about playing a different race, unless they go back to different starting experiences per race/class as DAO? It's just a different skin, maybe with a few race specific lines or words here and there

How many games, beside DA:O, featured a race dependent start? "Different skin" approach is the standard one and not an exception.

Not race, but class : Drakensang 2 has.

- tactical camera is back (in a lot of games, "tactical" overview never went away)

- you can play as a Qunari (dunno WTF that is)

- customize your keep (about as interesting as customize your hairdo)

I don't know about other people's wishlists, but mine isn't served here.

If you played DAO or DA2 how do you not know what a Qunari is?

If you didn't play them why should they care about serving your wishlist?

I've played but not finished DA:O.

Nowhere did I say that I want to be catered to by these guys, but as far as the revelations in this thread go, they're really pretty underwhelming. It's like saying "I'd totally buy a BG3 if I can play as a real drow this time", it might float someone's boat, but it doesn't objectively increase that game's quality.

Not really my point, just wondering why you'd care at all if you played so little of the first 2 that you don't know what a Qunari is?

It might not objectively increase the game's quality but very well could increase ones enjoyment of the game.

Seems your upset that people find this a worthwhile addition and you don't.

You seem to be posting negatively in a number of DA:I threads yet you've invested very little time actually playing the series are you sure your not being influenced by a negative bias for bioware?

You didn't play much of DA:O either did you? Quinari warrior appears VERY early in that game.

Can you quote me where I said that I'm upset? I can see a lot of sheeple people are quivering with anticipation when there is little factual basis for such excitement. I'm merely wondering.

No, Just as you can't quote anyone saying they are "quivering with anticipation".

It just seems your upset but I guess your posting negative comments in multiple DAI threads and BG thread with no emotions behind it whatsoever. I apologize.

As far as merely wondering, It seems to me that most people are being pretty cautious with there anticipation of this game and some who seem quite positive about it have listed why.

So i'm not sure what your wondering about?

I think one should suffice.

It was exactly two threads. Counts as multiple I guess

People getting caught up in baseless hype? But I guess that's kinda hard to relate to from inside the eye of the storm
