I gotta admit. I like that type of game. I dont want to play some deeply flawed NPC barkeep while the main story goes on around me. I want to kill the dragon, save the girl, build a castle and live happily ever after.

Give me moral choice, freedom, tough decisions, and a force of evil to overcome in creative ways.

To be fair, they did try something different in the last game and it was not very well received. It's not surprising that they would go with the tried and true.

I'm getting more and more excited about this one the more I see of it. I'm waiting to see more battle footage/info, but as long as it doesn't stray too far from either of the past two games, I'll likely enjoy it.

Thank you so much for this, Couchpotato. Anyway, it is good to know that we now have a release date. October 10th is a friday in October just before a major holiday here in Denmark, so guess what I'll be doing in week 42, also known as Monday the 13th to Sunday the 19th of October….

Here's a thread in the Bioware forum about the new trailer:

It looks like they haven't done much work on shadows around the face. Most of it looks burned in on the textures. I only saw one helm-covered face that looked naturally shadowed.

It wasn't well received because it was bad in almost every aspect.

Also there's a long gameplay of Inquisition in youtube:

Let's see:
  • Game of the Year reviews October 6th
  • Game launches October 7th
  • Any negative feedback is drowned out by fanboys until late December/Early January
  • So, I should expect an honest, rational review on which to base a purchase by February 2015.

At least we have a time-table now!

Hey, what can be said - hackneyed, familiar scenarios sell; just look at Project Eternity!

The game has not yet been rated the ESRB and PEGI;
Like as if there was any doubt that the game is going to be rated M.


I'm mostly interested in seeing the new class specialization in action personally. The "You are our only hope!" thing I could have lived without…it's even more ridiculous when Mark Darrah said they went with it to explore how people react to heros and savior…haven't they been doing that in like all their games since NWN????

And yes, it is maybe? a chosen one to save the world from an evil, ancient or not, again. But then, Bioware seems to telling these stories so well. And I enjoy a well-turned story. The story itself my be as old as Methusalem or Noah; the gist of the matter lies in how the story is turned i.e. told.

I can still enjoy Agatha Christie's Poirot and Miss Marple stories, even though I know how they ends. People still enjoy reading crime and detective fiction or watching it on tv and such. Even though, they know how they're going to end.
Because it lies in the characters, in the way the story is told, the plot.

If you click on the trailer, you'll notice Cassandra says that 'we call it the breach' and 'unless it is stopped, it will swallow/destroy everything'. And 'that we will restore order'. To me, this seems as if the Breach threathens the order, the very fabric of the world in the DA: universe and to me, it suggests that someone, or something, with a Great Intelligence, is behind the Breach in the Sky.

I'm in the comfortable position of not having any positive expectations where this game is concerned.

You'd think after the mess that was named Dragon Age 2, they'd just sneak this out and not even alarm anyone by making it public. Word of mouth slayed their last product, but if this one is a complete 180, perhaps it will worth the other way for them this time. I'll be waiting on several friends to bite first, lol.

My thoughts exactly.

And in classic Bioware fashion they chose to not fix it and throw it under the rug.

I don't care for BW games anymore and I will never give money to EA again. Pass.

Thirteen people at the Inquisition table. Who is Jesus? Who are the Apostle?

Peter: the Q'nari
John: the guy with an eye on his chest
Saul: the guy in the between.
Simon:the dwarf

Textures look like plastic.

Duh…I thought of 'The Last Supper' too, but I also thought 'no way are they going to be that cheesy…'. I was wrong, indeed 13 people behind that table.

Nice trailer, but kind of hard to distinguish between actual gameplay and cinematic scenes…as per usual.

Guess this will be my only pre-purchase this year (save some KSed titles) considering The Witcher 3 was delayed to 2015…

Ok, I am a cynic too, but I'll admit to being interested and even enthusiastic about this one. Not sure why, but I'm feeling good rpg vibes about this newest entry in DA.

No way DA:I beats that game. That game is being played by a billion+ people worldwide.

Seriously though I never get tired of saving the world. Especially if the alternative turns out like DA2.

I never played the second, though I enjoyed DA:O, at least until the slog through the Deep Roads in Orzammar. I did end up making it through it, but I was about ready to throw in the towel if that had continued longer than it did.

DA:I sounds interesting, but I will wait until after release to see what they say about it.
