    Yeah, this was relegated to a bit of banter/dialogue between her and Blackwall. Don't ask me where I know this from. Just bask in my knowledge.

    Actually Golems are being removed from D&D and similar games as being too racist or something. So they can't use talmudic sorcery anymore it's cultural appropriation.

    Codexers will never admit Hamburger Hepler is actually a really good writer as long as she has someone to slap her when she's about to write fujo shit. She's responsible for almost all of the dwarven lore and some of the best quests in DA:O. She wrote the dwarf commoner quests and most of the paragon of her kind. That's why she was made into the lead, because she excelled in DA:O. She was also responsible for overseering design of all the plot and quests in DA:O.

    Too bad she's a fujo into degen stuff that needs a tard wrangler and didn't have someone to slap some sense into her during DA:II.

    This is what current Bioware audience expects from the next game. Who is Bioware to argue and not give it to them?

    People here really like to shit on BioWare, but riddle me this - which RPG studio containing "legendary" names actually holds up today? Obsidian? Bethesda? All of the greats have either fallen from grace, retired, or are trying to put together a game in an indie dungeon, and have yet to release anything (Ziets). Remember how the Outer Worlds was supposed to be the next Arcanum? Or how Pillars of Eternity would overshadow Baldur's Gate? It's not BioWare that is being rotted with sickness - it's the entire industry. We are long overdue for a crash - you have Steam to thank for that.

    I'd take Pillars and Outer Worlds over DA2 and 3 in a heartbeat.

    At this point, the series is turning into an interactive drama with very limited/crappy gameplay elements. The fans themselves don't even care about the gameplay, they just want their queer romances, check their reddit, discord, or twitter, 90% of the DA4 posts are about romance fantasies, while there is barely any mention of rpg elements or gameplay.

    might as well save money and make a Visual Novel, people are more open to it these days, a lot of them on Steam and even League of Legends had one recently

    The Outpost in Andromeda seems to be, although still scaled back, a take on the cut Keep system they originally talked about in Inquisition. In the final game they seemed to have been rolled into the Skyhold, which also doesn't seem as important as what they first talked about when showing off Inquisition. But originally you'd get a number of Strongholds in different areas, and these Strongholds could be set to different functions in a area like espionage, war, or diplomacy and trade.



    That's a dumb fucking comparisons. I'm talking about a gameplay concept they showed in Jade Empire, (in reference to what of their games may have influenced those other games) now you're just talking about a purely visual technical limitation.

    My point is you're wrong.

    Narax isn't wrong, but they also like the "wandering around pretty places checking things off a list" aspect. Can't do that in a visual novel.

    What, and have their prosper faces compete with the Japanese, who dominate that segment? Even Bioware isn't that stupid.

    You can in modern Telltale style "adventure" games. Sure that'd still cost them vastly less than these do.

    There was some dev, Chris Taylor I think, that said that the most important part of games isn't actually what's in the games, moment to moment gameplay or anything, but the fantasy of something. Gameplay is only there to sell the fantasy of it. With that said I would appreciate it if they abandoned the pretense of what they were doing, nobody buys a new Dragon Age for tactical gameplay for their PC.
    Tbf skelly romances are very wholesome. Besides, guys already got one in Dragon Commander so it would only be fair if women got to romance a handsome, er, boner in DA4.
    Omg lol, if DA4 had a Gru-like companion I'd probably have to buy it despite not liking Inquisition at all.

    Nuh-uh, you got Black Isle 2.0 already and they made some flawed but pretty good games. It was there and now it's gone, but you still got it y'know?

    If you move the last panel into the fourth panel place it reads more ironic. Although the sad look on his face made me think it was ironic anyways.

    Their last "flawed but pretty good" game in my book is dated 2010. We're living in 2020.
    Yeah, this is good :P

    Pls don't remind me. :mad: You still got your band reunion is my meaning, and they aren't going to get together a third time. Instead you get new decent dev studios like Owlcat and small indies like Styg.

    A comment about the Inclusive Man's character reveal stayed with me forever. It was "Oh! My heartstrings! ❤️❤️❤️" by some large girl.
