    So what do you consider a sign of maturity in the advertising you saw of Dragon Age besides Bio devs saying this game is going to be mature at every sentence?

    Oh God, don't get me started on the marketing campaign for this particular title. It's evident it's utter fail- however- if your brain is corroded by reality television, you listen to commercial radio and enjoy innane horseshit- you prolly love it. Bioware continually selling the idea of a mature RPG is a moot one, as I couldn't really list any true 'mature' RPG's without listing the usual suspects. The campaign is utter fail, we all get that. But think of the market- a market of absolute idiots. Why is everyone continually suprised by this?

    I don't think anyone is surprised about this. It's just that we have never seen Bioware going so low with their marketing campaigns.

    EA is marketing Dragon Age, not Bioware. Bioware did however make the New Shit video.

    am not recalling any claims by bio that the DA advertising would be mature.

    HA! Good Fun!

    Yeah, and it was horrible. But can you imagine teenage boys the world over simply smashing themselves stupid over the idea of MM, Blood and titts?

    This may come as a shocking revelation but Bioware is EA's internal studio.

  9. I think we're missing something important. Isn't Dragon Age supposed to be as moddable as NWN1 was? How will this heavier sex theme affect the terrible, god-awful sex themed modules that will be released for it? This is the real question.

    Or maybe it is for me because I'm still bitter over "A Dance With Rogues". Hey, this has a great score. Lots of awards. Recommended by multiple people on a forum for a good module, and it's rogue heavy so it should have lots of traps and sneaking and cool things.

    *Starts module*

    *Plays for 5 minutes*

    *Gets dicks in every orifice within 30 minutes*

    *Closes the module and contemplates life*

    I.... Have no words....

    Granted ALL Bethesduh games cause all kinds of these modders to crawl out off the woodwork and make these kinds of mods.

    Thankfully you do NOT see a large amount of these kinds of .... stupid fucking mods for NWN/NWN2. They *do* have them, but are typically ignored.

    What do RPG players have to do with Failout 3? But other than that you are right - Failout 3 is a game for morons.

    Module of the year, for god's sake.
    And there are probably more horrifying NWN1/2 mods out there, but I never played many NWN1 modules and none for 2.

    And since I'm heading out into left field, Dragon Age WAS supposed to be super moddable like NWN, right? I thought I heard that, but it would have been a year or two ago at least, so maybe they changed their mind.

    Quick edit, I do agree Bethesda games get weird shit more than even NWN though. Probably because they're more... "Openly" moddable, without having to design an adventure around sweaty palms as much.

    Kind of proves that the ones making these mods have not had sex themself.

    You mean like in Mass Effect? Talk to them after every major mission and you'll land in bed with them if you don't explicitly tell them no? With the in game time seeming like 5-10 days max and with 4-5 dialogues longer than a minute? When you say the relationship develops over 30+ (playing) hours I look at ME and think: the relationship develops over ten minutes interspaced in something around 20 hours...
    Which leads right over to the next point. I've already said this but it seems repetition is required: Let's take the example of Conan. That is pretty much like TW, the sex stuff is based on macho "players". Conan has hardly any emotion at all and all the hot chicks want to fuck him because he is a mighty barbarian. You can pull off stuff like:"Rrrrw, you are hot, babe!"
    "I'm not only hot, I'm a slut, too. Take me now! Take me hard! I need you between my thighs. I'm soooooo wet." *moan*
    And it fits. Not everybody might like it, but it fits.
    Bioware on the other hand, want to touch <s>little children</s> their players emotionally. They like to provide extensive backround for the npcs and I don't think they consider their npcs sluts. So if they pull off similar stuff, call it mature and base a marketing campaign around it that just looks ridiculous.

    As for graphic novels being mature: they are mature compared to normal comics. If you tell a non-comic nerd that that "comic" you are reading is mature because it is a graphic novel don't expect to be taken seriously.

    There is nothing unrealistic about woman jumping in bed early with this ultra alpha male that you most likely will have as character. (Partly depending on setting and culture of course.) It is just that it isn't particulary interesting.

    Gaider's response. Short version:
    Leliana doesn't know you slept with Morrigan. She's just angry because you talk to other women.
    Morrigan doesn't just sleep with you because of the book but also because of other previous presents (she's not that cheap).
    And Gaider thinks the presentation stank and you'd have to be a fucking moron to show the end of a romance because you haven't touched the viewer's <s>little children</s> emotions, yet.

    [Edit]:
    Exactly my point about Conan. Just not the type Bioware makes. They aim for "romantic relationships" with the women being more than two dimensional fuck dolls. And that simply doesn't work very well together.
