RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS THREAD!, just a dumping ground

Recommended Posts

Enjoy posting comments like this quote all over the forum before DS3 ships and OEI shuts down.

 

Huh? It's not like me not posting comments will change the situation much, and you, as one that browses many forums to scavenge news, should know it better than me.

I've faith that Obsidian can do better games than what they've done until now, and of course, for now they've got their bases covered, but it's not like me having faith in them will magically make them uber-succesful. :o

 

So, Why did you post nearly same comments as that quote again and again and again and again at this forum as well as GB and RPGW forum?

Huh? Because it's what I think?

I didn't know there was a law that barred me from doing it. Sorry funcroc, next time I'll respect your vigilante wishes and won't post anything about Obsidian. :o

No need to do that. Do what you want to do and I'll do what I want to do.

Voiced protagonist.

 

With another incredibly bad voice actor as in Mass Effect and Alpha Protocol?

I can't see this going well.

Meh.

 

The obsession of BioWare with full voice acting.. it's not like people didn't buy Fallout 3 or Oblivion because the protagonist wasn't voiced. :o

You take that back!

 

Jennifer Hale was awesome.

 

I'm wholeheartedly for voiced protagonists, makes the game feel more like coherent experience instead of you making queries and getting responses from a dialog vending machine.

 

EDIT: we actually had a thread about that in the Developer's Corner a while back.

Standard shep is still MaleShep though, and if I choose a female character, I'll do that because I want to, not because bad voice acting forces me (though to his credit, the voice actor that worked on Thorton generally did a better job than Mark Meer in Mass Effect).

 

I'm not against voice acted dialogues by the way, I just don't want to see it becoming an industry standard, especially in games where I think it doesn't fit (as Dragon Age).

Female Shep is canon.

 

Why did it fit in Mass Effect, but not in Dragon Age? They were both going for a cinematic thing.

Female Shep is canon.

 

And that's why she appears on the cover of the game and has a premade character face that looks much much better than anything you can do with Mass Effect's facegen! :o

Well, it's not official, but a lot of people are pushing for it, mostly because Hale is so much better than Meer.

 

Hey, they managed to make The Exile female, everything is possible.

[P.S. : By better games I mean less buggy games with more polished controls and things like that. While a lot of the design decisions are debatable about games like NWN2 and Alpha Protocol, no one can argue that the games look particularly good visually or that they have a good control scheme/camera.

I can, they were fine.

You can be female. I would of liked to see the ****storm that followed a predetermined male character announcement.

 

EDIT : Predetermined character? Why, just... there's really no reason to do that.

 

Voiced protagonist.

 

Or more like very harsh deadline by EA :shifty:

The Witcher 2 is coming out in that timeframe too, and it's not like this October isn't full of blockbuster titles that will compete and probably sell better than Fallout : New Vegas.

The only thing Obsidian has to do is to make better games than what they've made until now, simple enough.

Otherwise they'll probably die as a company, considering I doubt a publisher would be interested in a developer that develops game destined to tank and to be appreciated only by a couple of guys on some obscure forum.

 

Witcher 2 and Dragon Age 2 are single player games, so DS3 will benefit for having multiplayer. Not that it would be smart for all 3 games to be released in short time period... And more than likely Dragon Age 2 will pretty much dominate the other two in sales. EA's massive marketing and BioWare's reputation kinda guarantee that. But since we still don't know a lot (nothing) about DS3, who knows how well it will do.

 

FNV has about 203k preorders so far in USA alone for consoles and pc. True, it cannot compete with CoD: Black Ops, nothing can. Lemmings will buy that game no matter what since it has CoD in it. I would imagine those preorder numbers will only go up once the final marketing push starts. That could/should guarentee Obsidian another shot with Fallout.

 

Predicting Obsidian's death is "a bit" premature and harsh if you ask me. They still got 3 games being worked on, ****loads of ideas to use and Feargus seems like a guy with one billion connections in the gaming world :shifty:

DA 2 is sounding more and more like Fable 1.


The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

What I said is that Obsidian probably will die if they continue releasing unpolished games, with design problems and that most of the press feels are 'unfinished'.

 

As for Dragon Age 2, we don't actually know if it will have multiplayer or not at this point.

Yeah, I waiting for the announcement that you can marry NPCs. :shifty:

Both Witcher 2 and DS3 will be moved back. Just like Bio would move back a launch coinciding with TES5.

 

As for Dragon Age 2, we don't actually know if it will have multiplayer or not at this point.

 

Chris Priestly confirmed it was a SPRPG.

Robot Entertainment (former Ensemble employees) allegedly working on PC RTS "Spartan" with MS. Click

 

MS doing a PC exclusive? That's a new one. Now they only need to buy Robot and lay them off years later to complete the MS dumbass cycle.

 

Edit: I still can't forgive MS for shutting down such an excellent studio. Ensemble were the only ones that made competitive RTS games besides Blizzard that I really loved.

Big Huge Games RPG "Project Mercury" will be reveiled at Comic Con on July 22th. Click

 

*Fingers crossed*

"McFarlane will be on-hand, along with the game's lead designer Ken Rolston and its executive creator, R.A. Salvatore."

 

Salvatore did writing for Demon Stone, which was a pretty fun but shallow game. Rolston was the lead for Oblivion. I'll keep an eye on this.

Jarlaxle in Ust Natha was another R.A. Salvatore creation. That annoying guy that tricks you into killing a lich.

 

Not to mention Crenshinibon, one of Icewind Dale's plot devices.

Looking forward to it. The design team of Project Mercury is being led by ex-Bethesda devs (Oblivion, Fallout 3) and ex-Iron Lore dev (Titan Quest, DoW: Soulstorm)
