In what order will you play the upcoming 3 rpgs


Recommended Posts

I suspect we'll get wasteland 2 first next month (hopefully)

 

but soon after (likely November) we will have both pillars of eternity and dragon age inquisition drop.

 

 

Assuming they all dropped right on top of each other, which do you play first?

 

 

 

Personally, I like to play what I'm anticipating the least from first, and the most from last so that I can still have that to look forward to.

 

If I did that with divinity original sin though I probably would have played that first, not expecting much.

 

 

I want to try wasteland 2 first since I am more into sci fi/fantasy settings vs the more real world constraints of something like a wasteland series.  But who knows, that might be better than everything.

PoE would be my top pick, but seeing as I own Wasteland 2 already (thanks to SqueakyCat for hooking me up with a copy!) that's what I'll play through first. 

 

and after Dragon Age 2 Bio has lost all credibility with me, so any games they produce from now on will only be played by me after seeing a million videos and hearing a million opinions of them first 

Let's Play The Temple of Elemental Evil (Complete)
Let's Play Neverwinter Nights and Hordes of the Underdark

Let's Play Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

1) Wasteland 2 - because it is releasing first

2) Pillars of Eternity - because it's coming out after Wasteland 2

NA) DA:I - because I have no intention of buying it, as things stand now

I already started playing the W2 demo and the Eternity demo releases next weak.

 

Probably won't get to DAI until a few years, and not until it hits the bargain bin with all their DLC compiled together.

 

Then again, I've barely started DA2 and ME3 -and by then there will probably be other games holding my interest.

If they all came out at once - Skip DAI, focus on POE then WL2 in time left over.

 

I suspect I'll check out DAI at the bargain bin if actual RPG fans turn out to like it.

Probably only DA:I, it looks like the game best of the lot by far.

oooooh, controversial opinions time!  :dancing:

our prediction is that PoE will slip to early 2015, but even so, we will not play da:i for at least one year. we waited ~ one year after its release to play mass effect 3 and we do not regret that decision. by waiting 11+ months to purchase me3, we got a much more stable and somewhat cheaper product along with free dlc that likely shoulda' been included with the initial release. 

 

we is likely to play wasteland 2 first.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity, then Dragon Age Inquisition. Mostly because I kickstarted the first 2 so I'll play them I the order I get them, then DA:I because I have no money so I have to wait till it hits $20 or someone buys it for me.

I'll try the games I backed as soon as I get them, of course, but whether it's to completion or just to sample for a day depends on how that first session goes. Heck, I'm still sitting on D:OS until the major August patch, and also haven't gotten back to Dragonfall, now waiting for the Enhanced Edition.

 

DA3 depends on you guys selling it to me. I never got through DA1 and ignored DA2 completely so that's a fair hurdle to overcome.

Don't buy or play it. You won't like it.

Probably DAI, since it will be readily available retail. Other two depend on whether I can hijack some kind person's internet for a substantial download, and much as with D: OS I'll have to wait for patching to die down as well. And any of them depends on whether I can get off my bum and actually buy myself a new computer, something I've been meaning to do since TWitcher2 was released and am yet to get around to.

Odds are that turns out to be true, yes, but then if I applied the same logic to to everything I'd probably never have played games I ended up enjoying such as BG2, Twitcher 2 and Skyrim.

POE wins easily.

Wasteland 2 looks lackluster and a step back from fallout 3 new vegas, Dragon age 3 will have to wait for stunning reviews on metacritic since Bioware sex appeal was dealt a serious blow with dragon age 2 and mass effect 3 fiasco, there were too many hostiles emotions in play.

DA:I  has Romance in it, I'll sell it to you no problem.... :wub:

 

I'll probably play DA:I first and then PoE because I think PoE is only going to released in 2015. Then W2, no rush to play that game

There's still the option of getting a boxed copy of Pillars of Eternity through the website. At $50 plus shipping it's definitely no more expensive than DAI.

As much as I hated and despised DA2, I have high hopes that Inquisition will be a return to form for bioware.  They have already fixed some unforgivable issues like the scope of the game with more varied locations (even with like 4-5 maps D:OS was VASTLY more epic in scope than DA2), and no longer having a locked camera.

Yeah, no need to worry. I am also of the opinion that DA:I is going to offer us a very entertaining RPG experience :)

O RLY? $50 = $90?

 

I learn new things every day...

 

 

Then again, PE cost me $250....

:( :( :(

I wrote "no more expensive" not "the same price as". In any case international shipping varies wildly so I didn't want to make assumptions. (fwiw for me PoE boxed would be at least $65 and DAI is $80.)

Yeah, I know. It'd cost a lot more than DAI to get PoE that way though, since I'll get DAI via a British remailer with free mailing rather than the $20 for PoE shipping. If the twenty bucks went to Obsidian I'd do it, but it'd go to the courier or worse, Paradox.

 

I'm not really that worried, I can usually scum downloads if I really need to, it's just mildly embarrassing to have to do so.

1. PoE

2. WL2

3. DA:I

 

That's not to say I expect DA:I to be crap, just that it doesn't have me as interested as the others. Realistically thought, there is a good chance that DA:I is released before all of them, given WL2 been pushed back to September (and not for the first time), and we won't see PoE this year. Which would mean I will be playing DA:I first.

I haven't got any interest whatsoever in W2. Might play it a couple years down the line, but I dislike postapocalyptic media of all sorts, so it wouldn't make much sense for me.

 

I think DA:I will come out before PoE, so I'll likely be going with BioWare's latest first. If they come out about the same time, I'll probably still play DA:I first, because I don't want to be comparing BioWare's writing to Obsidian's writing while playing a BioWare game.
