I don't know about anyone else, but I'm a little excited for DA3. I really loved Origins and Awakening (even if Awakening was depressing as all getup), and I even enjoyed DA2 even if they kinda went cheap on it....and wouldn't let me romance Varric even though he was THE ONLY GUY WORTH PUTTING UP WITH!....sorry, Anders- related trauma.
Anyhoo, I was planning on pre-ordering the PS4 because I saw that DA3 was planning on being a release game, but I guess now they're waiting til next year and making it available for PS3 and PS4? Is anyone else confused or know anything about this? I tried checking the DA site, but I wasn't able to find anything.
However, the game looks hella intriguing, doesn't it?
From what I can see, the release of the PS4 is late this year, probably close to Thanksgiving or Christmas, and DA3 should be in the Fall of 2014. So no, it apparently won't be a release game, unfortunately.
I'm definitely excited about it no matter what. (And since I'm primarily a PC gamer, I'm not too personally concerned about the release date. I have a PS3, but I'm not sure about getting a PS4 since I use my PC for just about all games.) DAO was a fantastic game; it may be my favorite game ever. DA2 was, in my opinion, better than most RPGs but not nearly good enough to be a fitting sequel to DAO. The developers have taken all that into account, apparently, and they're trying to make it more focused on RPG elements and to model some of it after open-world games like Skyrim, which can only be a good thing. And they finally figured out that we all hate recycled environments, so they won't be doing any of that again. Good grief, how did they think we'd respond to that in DA2? That was really irritating.
Hopefully it'll be good. I have enough faith in BioWare to buy the game regardless, but...if it's another fairly mediocre game like DA2 (at least by BioWare standards), it'll take a lot to convince me to buy games from them again.
