What came first, the spamming or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids reading thousands, literally thousands of posts about anime, 4chan, flaming, goatse and emos. Did I make terrible posts because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I made terrible posts?

BUMP

As the release draws near I thought I might rewrite the main post, it was too lazy before and lots of new information was made available since then.

Check out this new article about the toolset: this is looking more and more like my wet dream. icon_biggrin.gif cough

Have you seen the new Dragon Age Trailer? It's pretty intense, I like the new direction they are taking with the style:

The new Dragon Age trailers are all about GORE AND HARD ROCK.

I mean really BioWare? Fuck. And they're releasing console versions? So basically if they are to make it exactly the same, the design choices they have to make (read: sacrifices) so it works on the console, like different level layouts, will also be present in the PC version.

Why.

Also, preorder exclusive ingame content that costs 20 bucks otherwise.

Beginning to be let down here.

What's wrong with releasing console versions? It seems perfectly reasonable to me. Can't see how it'll hurt the game at all tbh. The only sacrifices they have to make is make new control schemes for the consoles that work just as well as the one on the PC, and apparently they managed to do that.

And I doubt the toolset will get a console version. So there you have it.

And as for the extra content, it's not content that was excluded just for the sake of selling it individually. Shale was announced literally years ago and was cut a long long time ago in development. As in there was lots of unfinished material that was completely removed from the game and never touched again. This DLC reconstructs that content and adds it back in.

And it's not just for preorders, it's for all first-hand sales.

Can't see what's wrong with that, honestly. I mean, finally someone is using a carrot instead of a stick.

I'M JUST WORRIED MAN.

We need a REAL RPG, like what this is promising. But if the dialogue turns out to be nothing but 60 hours of extended fucking jokes (Read: NWN2) I'm going to gouge my damn eyes out (or chop off my ears, whatever).

Hopefully the style is just an indication to the dark nature of the RPG, rather than an indication that this will be nothing but an Action RPG.

I have full faith in Bioware.

I just refuse to believe that they'd make an RPG that doesn't have an epic, engaging storyline.
And they only reinforce this with things like the 6 different Origin stories or them saying the world is influenced by things like the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. Fuck, if they don't make an epic storyline, it'd be an insult to Martin.

You have to believe!

Character creation is extremely impressive, it does seem to be Bioware's most intricate creation tool to date:

Video








PC system requirements:

Windows XP Minimum Specifications:

OS: Windows XP with SP3
CPU: Intel Core 2 (or equivalent) running at 1.4Ghz or greater / AMD X2 (or equivalent) running at 1.8Ghz or greater
RAM: 1GB or more
Video: ATI Radeon X850 128MB or greater / NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT 128MB or greater
DVD ROM (Physical copy)
20 GB HD space

Windows Vista Minimum Specifications:

OS: Windows Vista with SP1
CPU: Intel Core 2 (or equivalent) running at 1.6Ghz or greater / AMD X2 (or equivalent) running at 2.2GHZ or greater
RAM: 1.5 GB or more
Video: ATI Radeon X1550 256MB or greater / NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT 256MB or greater
DVD ROM (Physical copy)
20 GB HD space

Recommended Specifications:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz Processor or equivalent
RAM: 4 GB (Vista) or 2 GB (XP)
Video: ATI 3850 512 MB or greater / NVIDIA 8800GTS 512 MB or greater
DVD ROM (Physical copy)
20 GB HD space

Seems decent, high but not too crazy. Older computers can run it, maybe not on full settings though. 20 gbs though? Quite steep. (well it is a big game, supposed to be at least twice as big as Mass Effect ;o)

All character origins are now up on the website, with trailers for all. Check them out: Link

A taste of the voice over work in the game:

Video


Penny Arcade is doing a series of Dragon Age strips. The first page is already up: Link

Lastly, I don't know if this is actually the real intro cinematic for the game, but it still is the best trailer to date: Link

That reminds me of the never ending trail of 12 yo kids coming back to get a refund for halo wars.

Whats wrong with hack and slash? This game could just as easily have been an action rpg rather than a turn based one, however Bioware stuck with turnbased.
Bioware may be the only company that can get away with this because they do it so well but as time is telling, turn based rpgs are on the downfall and action rpgs have definately taken to the top.

I don't understand why you had to of made such a dickish reply though
OjKa OjKa OjKa !
