    That new engine part confuses me, why bother when you have a working engine... unless they too got sick of every character model looking like it was slathered in vaseline.

    I think BioWare lost their fanbase after ME3. DA2 was poorly received, but ME3 raised a real shitstorm. It'll be interesting to see what happens next to BioWare. Sad, too. They were a great company once.

    I think I'll wait for the Czech's Inquisition instead but between this and the survey leaks, I'm morbidly curious to see what pans out. It'll be an adventure!

    Pandemic beat them to it a few years ago with LOTR: Conquest. What an hilariously amazing shitfest that was.

    For new engine, I think that is because they want to implement a strong multiplayer in the game. When I mean strong, I mean strong stinky smell, of course.
    Are there already topics with speculation about romances? These never cease to amuse me.

    Eclipse/Lycium was a shit engine that couldn't stay competitive with other modern console games.

    Hopefully this announcement will turn the lovesick biotards' attention away from Project Eternity.

    I hope the new engine will let them implement advanced jiggle physics. Amazingly Bioware is still way behind Troika when it comes to lulzy fake boobs.

    DAII was such a cheap knockoff they will struggle hard to float this turd. A shame really as I found the original DA not terrible (of course it had a lot more development time put into it than the sequel).

    Simple advice to the developers: don't reuse the same art assets/level designs over and over again and expect us to be "immersed". Also monsters parachuting into battle out of nowhere doesn't help either.

    IT BEGINS

    On a more personal level, DA2 was such a shitty game that it made me re-evaluate my standards of gaming and made me a lot more critical. In a strange way, it actually helped improve myself more than any other game. Hopefully we'll see more people like me abandoning ship and realizing that Bioware is not the company they used to be.

    Of course, wishing it to be a good game would be far too hopeful.

    That is the first thing modders will fix.

    That's too normal, it will be added last. The first thing modders will fix will be the lack of a 5 foot penis on trolls and the ability for them to rape you mid-combat.

    Another bait & switch like DA2, or a labor of love like DA:O? Only time will tell.

    Seriously. THIS! All the time everywhere across all sorts of PC games they come up with new engines for sequels, when instead they need to be extending the already-existing engine. I guess it looks better on paper?

    Next big twist: Obsidian bought out Bioware... but is later revealed to have been owned by Interplay all along. Herve Caen registeres on Codex. Posts picture of his dick inside the mouth of every Codexer's mom.

    Butts. Hurt.
