DRAGON AGE 2
Okay, I'll admit that I'm probably a bit late to that discussion, but I did not spend much time on the Bioware forum lately and therefore got no news about new DLCs or DA 2 for a while. Now I caught up, and must say that I am very sceptic about the information I found.
Let's say that we are not overly surprised that we're playing a new hero again, although they repeatedly mentioned that the story in DA 2 could be played with the original character, à la Mass Effect.
But we are only allowed to play humans now? What the hell?
And there'll be more action than in the original, maybe even at the expense of roleplaying, which was already very apparent in Awakening
What happened to everything that made DA so great, the different origins and lovely races, and the great dialogue options with your companions? Maybe that's just me, but I loved the dwarves, so it pains me that my hero(ine) must be human, and it looks like we are getting an origin that might work well with fighters and rogues, but a mage?
Yeah, I can so see a mage becoming a champion to the locals, especially before the last Blight.
I know it's still very early in the marketing, but honestly this does not look good in my opinion. Awakening
was a fun game, but still a great step down from the original, and this looks like DA 2 could degrade even further if Bioware is not careful.
But what are your thoughts? I know there are many fellow DA fans here, and I'd really like to hear your opinion! ART NEWS
On a more artistic note, I'm still working on polishing up my digital painting skills, which is why there haven't been too many updates lately. I really want to be able to paint clothes and stuff, so I need all the practise I can get, and the first example should be up some time next week.
I sincerely have to apologize to Tashya9206
who is still waiting for her kiriban artwork, but I always want to make artworks I can be proud of, and I feel that right now I would cheat her out of an otherwise cool fanart that would look only mediocre now because I cannot go all the way, so I hope she'll be patient with me.
Enjoy your Sunday
, and take care everyone!
