Dragon Age Facebook Game

EA announces Dragon Age Legends, an upcoming free-to-play version of BioWare's fantasy-themed RPG planned for launch on the social networking website in February of next year. They say the game will offer "accessible and engaging tactical combat with compelling co-operative gameplay," and it will give gamers the chance to earn "exclusive unlocks" for Dragon Age II, the upcoming full-blown Dragon Age: Origins sequel. Word is: "Dragon Age Legends will give players their first taste of the Free Marches, the primary setting of Dragon Age II. Alongside their Facebook friends, players will take on challenging quests within an engaging storyline, earning loot, sharing rewards and growing their kingdom. The game will include a gratifying character customization and upgrade system that will allow players to tackle demons and darkspawn to become a legendary hero within the Dragon Age universe."

You missed a few already, Dragon Age 2 looks like some shitty God of War clone with Mass Effect dialogue wheels. That game is dead to me.

I seriously think the fear of Consolitis has become some sort of hypochondria among PC gamers. How else could they think to complain about the dialogue options being in a wheel rather than a vertical list? Who could care about this?

Also, skill trees, basic auto attack, and queuing actions while paused are all confirmed; the God of War comparison is simply uninformed.



Welcome to the thread...

It's not the circular presentation of the dialogue options but the shortened/paraphrased, often unrepresentative wording of them. Also how the good option is always on top, the bad on the bottom, and the exploratory/asides on the side.

It's just boring.

I swear sometimes I choose something paraphrased and it comes out nearly opposite or in a surprising tone or nearly identical to an option I didn't pick.

Okay, that makes much more sense. I think that change has to do with having a voiced character. It would be dull to see the text, then hear the exact words spoken.

But to address your problem, Bioware mentioned in an interview that dialogue options will often have the intention in parenthesis, when it's not otherwise obvious. So you'll know if you're about to say something sarcastic or disapproving or whatever. Though you won't actually talk like an Elcor.

This gives a pretty good indication of the market they are targeting for DA2.

Agreed, Facebook is a no-no for me. Deleted (not disabled) my account many months ago, and I couldn't be happier.

Mmm hmm... This sounds like it will be lame, but who knows. I didn't think QuakeLive sounded all that awesome at first either. And it ended up being pretty great.

Facebook? I guess I won't be trying this. I deleted my Facebook account and I still feel it was for the best. Narcissistic and invasive crap.

I think this points out what new battlefield game is announced on friday. And that one guy might get his wish that it be released in 3 months.

A facebook BF game.

OT: You see that Trent managed to get his hands on the masters of "Pretty Hate Machine" and is re-releasing it 11/22?

Yep, I'm pretty excited. There's a pretty cool article about the change in artwork here: http://sleevage.com/nin-pretty-hate-machine/

I'm still waiting for the Uber-Edition of The Fragile, however...

I'll be looking out for it too - I really like NIN. The Fragile is also excellent and more of the same would be great.

You do realize it's EA you're talking about, right? AND it's a Bookface game. I'd say the odds of it being a half-assed try at publicity are about 100%.

"I’m happy to finally announce the re-issue of the first Nine Inch Nails record “Pretty Hate Machine,” releasing worldwide 11/22. UMe and Bicycle Music Group managed to locate the original mixes, so I went in the studio with Tom Baker and remastered it for a greatly improved sonic experience. In addition, Rob reinterpreted Gary Talpas’ original cover to make for a fresh new package.

It’s been an interesting trip watching the fate of this record float from one set of hands to another (a long and depressing story) but it’s finally wound up in friendly territory, allowing us to polish it up a bit and present it to you now. We had fun revisiting this old friend, hope you enjoy.
