Ive said for a few years that I was surprised that EA hadnt strangled the life out of them yet but I fear that I may be wrong about that from now on.
I for one dont keep playing a game if it cant deliver on the first playthrough.
Im a little after Hawke becomes the Champion and im beginning to loose not only hope it gets better but interest in continuing to play.
If Mass Effect 3 is as sketch as DA2 I dont think I will be recommending Bioware anymore.
Thats a shame. You have missed some truly amazing games.
But I agree for the most part.
I pretty much regret buying DA2 and I only buy DLC for good games.
bioware as we know it, is dead.
Since EA bought them, they have opened up more bioware offices, merged mythic with bioware, and also brought in other talent.
When you see the bioware name anymore, more than likely its 90% different people working on the projects, and its EA who makes the decisions. You can see an extreme change in design, story,combat of games they have made since being purchased by EA.
EA is milking bioware products like Activision is milking COD. Why because they can. No one else has the bioware name when it comes to RPGs.
bioware is dead to me anymore. I prefer my RPGS designed around having the consumer being intelligent. Not everytime i hit a button something awesome happens. or the laughable , think like a general, fight like a spartan.Edited by Vhati - 3/14/11 at 9:17am
