    I really despise the newer art style in Dragon Age and it has been getting continually worse since DA2. It just doesn't fit at all with a high fantasy setting.

    That is because the perfect "woman" for Biotrash is a tranny.

    That resume... that resume! Holy shit, I've never seen such a garbage one. Again, this has to be the reason games have been getting worse and worse. The talent is just not increasing alongside the technology. Seriously, I'm not sure how a publicly traded company allows this stuff to happen.

    My wishlist for DA4 would be better mage duels (and to have a stand with Solas), better exploration and weapon upgrades, early specialization (Inquisition had too late) and more passive upgrade points, less loading in and out of big areas, balanced combat (toward the end you can breeze through most fights, early you had to grind hard), moar dragons.

    What inquisition really needed was a living world. You always felt like you were exploring a post apocalyptic world where humanity and all other races had died off and lived only in very small pockets, all the maps were empty, very few npc's beyond those you fought, very few interesting quests. Compared to the witcher 3 it felt like a amateur hour game design.

    I still enjoyed it but it felt like a huge missed oportunity.

    If its the same:
    If they make it different:
    Also, those Bioware developer interviews are hilarious, all the phenotypes on display made for good fun during the Witcher vs Dragon Age threads on the 4chins.

    Well, I would think it is better to start a new franchise, rather than mutate an existing one into something it was not.

    You can argue this was due to Bioware's engine limitations. Here's what dev said about it.

    At this point I'm convinced that bioware employees are required to praise frostbite anytime they discuss it. A lot of bioware's failures can be attributed to being forced to use frostbite.
    andromeda excepted, one of the few good parts of the game is due to it using frostbite because it actually has pretty fun combat

    I just remembered that I know a girl who had to return DA:I because it was too hard even on the lowest difficulty setting.

    I guess their only choice moving forward is to casualize the franchise even more in order to appeal to a broader audience.

    They tried that with Anthem, and I am sure that if that game were called Mass Effect: Combat Evolved or something like that, it would've performed better.
    So while your advice may be good in another context, right now it will fall on deaf ears. They want a safe game, some comfort food to fight the depression. The staff, and their fans, and their execs too, all want a safe play.

    wow yeah they should make another mass effect game maybe set in a separate galaxy
    like mass effect triangulum set in the triangulum galaxy, it will sell tons of copies and be a great success

    Attaching a familiar brand to a product increases sales. If you disagree, you are wrong. If you don't think you are wrong, you are wrongererest.
    If Anthem was called Iron Man: Third Millennium and had a few choice voice actors and Marvel cameos, it would've sold double what it did. Them's the facts.

    You mean that game which would've objectively sold less if it wasn't a Marvel game?

    And it would've been a bigger flop without the brand behind it, fag. You know this to be true, you are just pretending otherwise, so that this can be a joke haha and not you being wrong. Can't be retarded if I was pretending all along hurr durrr.
