If the buttsecks doesn't deliver this game literally has zero support behind it.

The reaction at 6:12 on the third video... All hope is lost. People cheer about the most mundane stupid shit.

~Wow I keep skipping through and the chick near the camera makes some weird noises and is just excited about nothing... I hate these people.

The might fortress of Adamant....



Also, that really looks good for a 'pre-alpha' build of the game.

Yeah, the demo kind of sucked, but I'm pretty sure that isn't a reflection of the actual game, so much as it is just a poor reflection of the demo

I still want the game, because I love RPGs and actually loved how active and fun it became in DA2. My hope is that they split the difference for this one.

I hear things like... this area you see here is but one of several and it's not near the biggest, well this one are is bigger than all of DA2 combined. My point is Bioware RPG's have been hideously small, corridors, load after load. This alone makes the game a lot better. Exploration is a great RPG trait... one they never had, or at least in a loooong time.

Just watched it all, it looks great to me. It's like Skyrim/Witcher but with a party, a handful of upgrades to those as well. That will work for me.

Mass Effect 1 and 2 both had a ton of exploration with lots of neat stuff to find. Do you mean that you prefer games like Mass Effect 1 that have more areas that you find that have very little in them? I prefer Mass Effect 2's design where when exploring you could just pick up the chotchkes on planets that didn't have any content and you got small quests on the ones that did have content. Also, all the towns in all 3 Mass Effects had a ton of side quests if you explored enough to find them. They also had many sidequests in Dragon Age Origins if you went around looking for them and some really obscure things like those boss fights with the undead liches in philactories that were spread all over with nothing to lead you to them. The Old Republic also had a bunch of sidequests and Easter Eggs if you ventured off the beaten path. I'm honestly not sure what you want in the way of exploration if Bioware games don't do it for you. I say that without vitriol. I'm honestly perplexed.

Are you sure you don't mean Draenei? I can't keep all of these generic character designs in order...

Invisible walls truly make me angry.

I wanted to go to this but decided not to since I never even got an hour into DA2 before realizing it was crap. I had finished DA1 too.

It's crazy how people are getting all excited about this mundane shit, but when people were winning graphics cards and entire Xbox Ones at PAX they acted completely uninterested.

If I was God and/or Jesus and started My Second Coming because this girl was calling out to Me over and over, only to find out that a puny fireball effect in a silly video game THAT SHE DIDN'T EVEN PLAY was the cause, I'd be pissed.

I had no idea where you were going with that at first but I was laughing in the end.

I liked it.
But for me so much depends on the details in how they implement the top-down on PC.

The combat in DA:O was very nice - hard and strategic. I hope you can still have that experience in DA3. Not matter what I will buy and play it I think.. DA2 was not THAT bad to put me off. But if DA3 is more DA2, then I will skip DA4.

Well.. the first hour really was the worst of it. You had those scenes were you had all the powers, controlling a single character and could spam the actions. I was literally shocked when I play it - so action focused, and almost manga-style with the BIG swords etc.

Then it calms down after that - you start from scratch, and the scenes you played at first (as I remember) are like through a story-tellers lense (exaggerated on purpose).

Still it's not as good as DA:O, but don't judge the entire game on the first hour. If you get past it then it improves in my opinion.

You think that's why the world hasn't seen him in a while? Every time he responds to some giggley, excited girl freaking out without a good enough reason?
