Novel? Or at least a short story about this new world?


Recommended Posts

Jumping the gun here I realize, but... Prior to the release of BioWare's newly created Dragon Age universe, lead writer David Gaider wrote a couple books which gave us an early look at the history, culture, setting, etc.

 

I realize this team will be much smaller, but has there been any consideration of perhaps writing something to give us a brief overview of "The World" (which I assume will get a proper name eventually)?

I could never take video games books too seriously, even when they're written by competent writers. I've read a few Blizzard novels, as well as works related to Mass Effect. To put it shortly, I was not impressed at all.

 

I'd much preffer a 'Mass Effect'-like Codex library, with snipets of information added to it as the game progresses. Seems more efficient, I don't now.

Ewww, Karpyshynn (or however it's spelled) is a horrible non-game content writer, and the ME books were atrocious. That's sad to say because the Mass Effect games/universe is probably my absolute favorite. David Gaider's books, however, were quite good. But a novel is a major time commitment, which is why a short story would perhaps be more appropriate.

 

Just please no friggin' comic or anime...
