    Mr Hawke, do you have a comment regarding the news that the Dragon Age series is going to continue?

    I thought he was squeezing one out....

    Heh, I wish. I'm not even good enough to use Photoshop. Just a random pic of Hawke floating around.

    Sure, why not? With the art assets from DA2, they have 2-3 caves, 1 warehouse/hideout, templars, mages, qunari and bandits. That should pretty much cover their art needs for the next masterpiece. I'd imagine they wouldn't want to re-use many DAO assets due to the change in art direction.

    This woud be proof that DA2 was in fact a huge step backward, not good move for IP int... read EA share holders profit, anyway I doubt the Biowhore woud have a creative freedom to make something like F02/MotB and which is more important talented and pasionate people to realise it. EA Biowhore's future is to be Computer third word sweatshop, where lpw payed hacks will toil under EA whip to make cheap games untill the market will be saturated and Bio terminated. :incline: You know after seeing DA2 I cant play DAO all the worst points of the once ilustrius ancestors are now bare naked before my ayes. I't's like curse being lifted by Witcher, weird but liberating feeling. :salute:

    No, just delayed on account of feedback.
    See that, it's on record. DA2 will be totally awesomex3. That would be a first if the DLC turned out to be actually better than the main game, wouldn't it?

    You know, someone should tell EA that it's really fucking hard to create a sequel, plus provide patches and support to two other games at the same time, and serves less to build up hype and interest and more just to dilute expectations, oversaturate the market, and ultimately results in sub-par quality.

    Eh, never mind. More fun this way.

    rpg market oversaturated by 3 titles a year?
    same people working on DA3 and ME3 at the same time?

    I'm predicting that DA3 will set a new standard of low so bad it will make Oblivion like a like Fallout 1 by comparison.

    So, EA wants Bioware to follow the road made by 3DO and run into bankruptcy because the game-a-year model would lead to obvious beta releases. Of course, one could say that DA2 is already a beta release. :smug:

    Someone posted something in one of the DA2 threads before I haven't seen repeated, but I agree with it.


    It doesn't matter how long Bioware has to work on it. Can anyone honestly say that any of DA2's flaws (other than reused caves) aren't something Bioware did purposefully and would keep with an infinite dev time?

    As was already pointed out, they had 4+ years working on DAO and all they did with it was pad it out with meaningless dialogs and cutscenes. Both the art direction and assets themselves sucked, the world was generic, the plot was generic, the NPCs recycled, and the combat mechanics bloated and redundant.

    Bioware being on a short development leash will not impact their "quality" in any way.
