More designers/writers as a stretch goal  

199 members have voted

  1. 1. Would you want legendary BioWare designers to take part in the development of PE?

    • Yes, bring in everyone willing!
    • Yes, but bring in only those who worked on the BG series and/or the Infinity Engine
    • No, this game should be made by Obsidian exclusively.

Voted No.

 

but hey you never know who they're going to hire to help make the game :p

Depends on who from Bioware. Patrick, Lukas, Gaider? Sure. Mac Walters, Casey Hudson,Mike Laidlaw? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

 

Same with EA being invovled. EA better stay away from this game, and Walters.

I'd quite like to see what Obsidian would come up with in collaboration with Warren Spector or Ken Levine*, but that's a pipe dream and likely a case of too many cooks/ chiefs as well.

I'd be interested to see Gaider on it. See what he pulls out with old-school objectives. He definitely aimed for mature themes in Dragon Age 1 and 2, it just got sidetracked.

 

However, the logistics of it would be too troublesome for a serious interest.

Maybe bring in Alanschu and Stanley Woo for some QA work?

 

I kid, I kid.

 

...maybe?

I rather they take real fantasy writers over these 'less talented writers' that continues to insert homosexual romances and blood-bathing violence in a 'darker edgier setting.' They had an action movie end to ME3 derailed by some dude who thinks about inserting some thoughtful philosophical BS and thinks it will make decisions harder. Guess what? It didn't work. They think too highly of themselves and it blew up in their face.

 

And Dragon Age universe is horrid piece of work:

Cult Drinking Blood to achieve power - Yes.

Blood Magic - Yes.

Homosexual Romance - Yes

 

It's like Twilight suddenly teaming up with White Wolf.

The poll result seems fairly emphatic.

 

Honestly I'd like to see the Obsidian team be able to work on their own without publisher or IP restrictions. If they contract some extra designers to do so: more power to them. Getting Bioware as a company seems unnecessary.

You don't want to bring in Bioware. Casey Hudson would just **** it up royal because his ideas supercede other ideas. A better choice would be Beamdog, which has many of the fine gentlemen who worked on BG. Though I've heard Black Isle was recently resurrected, and I'm not sure what talent they have currently.

Hey, Bio could get involved if the game was a free-to-play MMO piece of vaporware.

 

Seriously, Bioware is an empty husk, occasionally dry-humped by EA.

 

No.

I simply trust Obsidian to be the better storytellers these days, ever since DA:O at least. They already have more than enough talent and as was said above, too many cooks...

No, Eternity must be Obsidian's baby.

I'm not against a collaboration between the two studios, but not for this.

Have you played Bioware's recent titles? Their writing has become a joke.

 

No one from Bioware, please.

Eh Gaider and Patrick would be finew s they are the only writers worth anything at that shell, Gaider though since he has strong ties with BG. It's not like people want Casey Hudson to help, because that would be bad.

Yeah if they announced teaming up with bioware I'm pretty sure their pledges would plummet to nothing..... only to be replaced by bioware fans. Which would probably net them a lot of pledges again, but then they'd have a lot of ex-fans.

I say this, if they team up with certain Bioware devs, they need to mention the names right away and what they have written. If you just say Bioware, what Korron just said will happen and it will be a sad day for rpg games.

 

Gaider and Lukas(or did he quit?) are the best and the only peopel from Bioware Obsidein should even think about if they look at Bioware, maybe Patrick as he is a good writer who sadly has to work under EA and the shell called Bioware.

 

Then again, my dream is Gaider and Patrick quiting and going to Obsidian, where their talents will be put to better use.

I voted yes. Hypothetically speaking if Obsidian needed assistance around development, which I'm sure they don't,why wouldn't you bring in other skilled developers. Biowares perceived failures are not around the coding of there games but the direction and change of the gameplay. Also if anything I would blame EA for this and not Bioware.

No thanks...

 

1st - there are not many people at the current Bioware, which would be able to craft a more than decent RPG. Their writing just went to a dump level with DA2 and ME3.

 

2nd - that's not Bioware, but EAs division, so I would assume that there would be a) some legal strings attached to any form of co-operation and b) possibly future profits sharing

No I haven't play ME in MP. But is that a example for bad coding? I know many stable single player games that become problematic in MP

 

In fact one positive thing I will say about Bioware is that with DA1&2 and all the ME I had almost no crashes. The games were very stable. Isn't that a sign of good development skills?

It's one thing to make a game stable and another to make it bug-free entirely.
