Dragon age sex

With about a year to go until Dragon Age: Inquisition, Bioware is clearly determined not to make the same mistakes as they did with Dragon Age II. In fact, they are on a fact-finding mission to determine why people liked Dragon Age to begin with.

Jessica Merizan, Bioware’s Community manager, sent out a tweet looking for feedback:

 

The link will take you to a survey about Community Gameplay Styles and Preferences. These include questions about platform ownership and use, as well as preferred party compositions. It seems rather unbalanced as a survey. After asking players to rate the level of importance of elements such as puzzle solving, relationships and romance, storyline, combat and creature design, the entire second half of the survey is about combat. What tactics did you use in previous games, how did you customize the AI, etc.

That said, at least they are showing a commitment to getting things right this time. I like that they’re looking at party combinations and what aspects people enjoyed the most. So go complete the survey like good little monkeys – we have to do our part to ensure that we get the games that we want.

    Combat that requires REAL intelligence and more strategy options would be wonderful. DA 1 had such brilliant combat

      Agreed! In DA:O, and especially the final boss / dragon, you couldn’t just wade into battle – you had to take stock of the situation and use your team accordingly.

      DAII was pretty much ‘point-and-slash’… Never felt challenging. Enjoyable to a degree… But not challenging.

        Gaad dayum DAT final boss….splitting your team effectively was imperative to your success…Multi-tasking like a boss and you felt great having finally killed it…Not to mention freaking Gaxkang , my god!

        I agree DA 2 felt very dumbed down………..

            He is saying that a ton of players relied heavily on Morrigan in their party in their first (and probably many subsequent) playthrough. However, right at the end of DA: O(before the final battle) she leaves. Now there is a pretty large gap in your otherwise AWESOME dream team. Which only a Mabari Hound could fill. Awh. Hound. EAT DRAGON! Anyway. The battle was a lot tougher for it.

            Can you say PLOT TACTICAL TWIST.

            Edit: Add EXPLOSIONS.

        Agree that DA:O had better combat, but DA2’s cobat “fealt” better. Like hitting something actually felt like driving your blade into it.

      Well, never have played DAO kinda went well for me for DA2 (since no basis for comparison)

      Although the CoD caves (copypaste) was quite annoying

        The two things that stuck out to me were that damn cave (so bad), and the fact that every time a new chapter rolled around & you returned to the city, at night you’d find 3 gangs again in exactly the same place as before – just with different names. Almost like those respawning checkpoints in Far Cry 2.

      I’ve recently started playing DA2 just to fill the gap. I went in knowing it wasn’t as good as DA:O but I don’t think it’s as terrible as everyone always makes it out to be. Could it be better, yes but then we can say that about many games. I would have liked more freedom and less linearity. It’s not a bad game but its not an epic game either.

    Can I be cynical & ask if the only reason they’re asking this, so far into development, is because they’re running behind & want to cut back on a few items?

      Let’s hope not. Maybe, just maybe, they want to make a game that will rekindle the epicness that was once Bioware and give the fans a game worthy of their expectations.

      Hahahaha. You have no faith.

      They are just researching what DLC packages to put together.

      “What? We didn’t give you multiple classes in the original DA3? Well.. here is a DLC package.”

      “What? Want an origin story? Sure. Buy this DLC package.”

      “Hey.. want to craft your own potions? Guess what? Yep! DLC baby!”

    Feedback? Leather bras. It always amazes me in fantasy games people can raise the dead, craft armour from the very pillars of hell and summon demons from seven dimensions over but the average “something lacy” still eludes them.
