‘Dragon Age: Origins’ May Have the Coolest Launch Cinematic Ever


Now if only there was a way to prove that this kind of awesomeness would continue in-game. I have yet to see any actual gameplay footage from Dragon Age yet, so I’m split on if I should buy it. I’m probably just going to wait for the Metareviews.

My conflict is this. I love Bioware, mostly due to my third favorite game of all time, Mass Effect, but even though that was an RPG of sorts, it wasn’t turn based, and Bioware’s previous project, KOTOR, I just couldn’t get into due to my extreme distaste for any turn based game that isn’t Pokemon or Final Fantasy X.

I will probably end up getting Dragon Age, and I’ll learn to deal with the turn based crap if I have to. Knowing Bioware, they’re make it worth my while.

    when’s this come out?

    also, something completely unrelated: i bought diablo II over the weekend just for shits and giggles. I had never played it before and i realize its a bit of an oldie, but from what i understand, a goodie. i havent really played it yet, but after work tonight im gonna devote an hour or so to it. so tell me, paul, is my social life doomed?

    From what I’ve seen of the gameplay it looks a bit like Mass Effect in an Oblivion setting, so Mass Effect with swords? All the fights are real time so no need to worry about turn based stuff. There were some videos on youtube that was a developer walkthrough kind of thing that showed a castle under siege. If I remember its also got a similar dialog and choice tree like Mass Effect where you can choose to be good or evil. I might get it but there’s too much coming out this season, I’ve already picked up Brutal Legend and Uncharted 2, I’ve still got Borderlands, Modern Warfare 2, and Assassin’s Creed 2 to grab.

    I’ve been waiting for this game for about a year now. It’s suppose to the spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate. I LOVE Baldur’s Gate. It was the game that got me into the RPG genre. btw, bravo to the Lord of the Ring and 300 begining cinematics. lol.

  • well THAT is a trailer i’d like to see of every good game out there…

    even though i don’t know what exactly happens in the game, i’ll buy it at once!
