In ME1 more than a few times two of the three option given to you in the dialogue tree were the same thing in spoken dialogue which was just lazy, that was mostly fixed by ME2. The conversations with my mute Warden felt awkward and detached so that's of the main reasons why I prefer a voiced acted player character, as long as it's good not like that Mark Meer shit, srsly Nolan North was rumored to be one of the possible choices to voice maleshep, Nolan North and Jennifer Hale together how the fuck did that not happen?

I honestly have no clue, maybe doing story type missions with friends? Or fighting other people online? Or fighting mooks like they do in the ME3 multiplayer? Honestly as long as the single player storyline is good I don't really care much what they do with multiplayer.

Nolan North is obviously too busy voicing everything else to star in another Bioware game

Put another way, when talking Mass Effect, I tend to say "my Shepard did X/is an Infiltrator." Rather like jrpgs ("My Ramza's a Dragoon"). Or even "I had Shepard say X"
But in Skyrim/DA1 I tend to say "I'm a mage," "I just told the guy to piss off."

If that makes sense. I don't have a problem with either, but there's definitely a difference and I enjoyed having the latter in DA1.

What's wrong with Mark Meer?

Mark Meer's voice acting was kinda meh in ME1, but he improved throughout ME2 and put up a pretty solid performance in 3.

They basically picked Meer because he's been a Bioware staple, I think.

OT: I hope they bring in Cassandra as a main character in DA3 :3

Mark Meer in ME1 sucked, everything was a dull surprised and just nasal and annoying, he got better in the next two games but that really ain't saying much.

Cassandra at least will most likely have a larger role in DA3 since she's a Seeker and Agent of The Divine but it would be awesome if she was a party member.

I remember finding this really old article about how they were considering making Cassandra a party member. I'd definitely be all for it ;3; but I wonder in terms of gameplay how exactly they'd fit her in.

Probably some wierd glass-cannon deal type thing, idk. She did seem to gravitate between sword-shield in Dawn of the Seeker, though, so there's that.

Honestly, I think anything goes when it comes to possible party members for DA3, since unlike the ME series there's very little direct connection between the stories of Origins and 2.

That movie was awful, no wonder Cassandra is so pissed at the beginning of the second game. I think she would probably be the soldier/tank type.

As for other party members yeah they'll probably be new ones but they could possibly bring characters from the last 2 games that had a small role like Merrill and Bella. I can tell you some of your former companions will most definitely not be joining you in this one like Morrigan for obvious reasons, Anders (SPOILER) cause that annoying fucker is dead and Wynne (SPOILER) sigh Dragon Age: Asunder . Leliana will definitely have a larger role though.

New info on the game:

The title appears to confirm a leaked questionnaire that emerged last month, with details suggesting “The empire of Orlais is riven by civil war; the Chantry is divided; the Templar order has broken away; the Mage circles have rebelled. Some unseen force is manipulating events, bringing about disorder and destruction. Out of this confusion emerges The Inquisition.” According to that leak, you'll play as the leader of the Inquisition and can make your character “a rogue, warrior or mage and set up your crew from up to ten complex companions to lead them against those who attack you by systematically spying on, revealing and destroying them."

Not quite surprised by any of that considering most of it had been alluded to by the third act of DA2

That, and the name of the game. Whaddaya know, a simple game title that actually directly refers to the story!
but moar solid details pls

Nobody expects the Inquisition!

Sorry had to do that.

But I am half excited for the game because I love the Dragon Age, but I am sorta half dreading it because some of the news I heard.
Like
  • Customization is going to be bigger than Dragon age Origins. Follower customization will be deep.
  • You will play a Human character.
(source tumblr)
Yeah that kinda ticked off some players...

Also the endings that I been getting with Bioware and personally not excited about the game taking place in Orlais (Ferleden chick over here)

I'll actually try and pull more info about it if anything else comes up but personally at the moment I am excited for this


Dragon Age: The World of Thedas, Vol. 1 cover art
$39.99 (list), 184 pages, 30 April 2013 publication date






Also DA3 better have Morrigan in it and Chasinds

I guess they're going with the ME formula in which you're playing as a specific character just like what DE2 did. I understand why they would do it but I also understand why some people are ticked off about it.

I'm loving that the game will be set in Orlais, it seems to me like a far more interesting place than Ferelden, plus bigger and Val Royeaux, I'm dying to see Val Royeaux.

Yes please Morrigan, I need more Claudia Black in my life.

Orlais is just Dragon Age's version of France

I mean I like it, but it's nothing amazing

Also eh I haven't played as anything other than a human since Origins so I'm not all that fussed about the humans-only thing, really. Level design is something I'm more interested in, as the majority of levels in the previous games were honestly kinda boring as shit. DAII suffered from copy-and-paste garbage stemming from lack of production time, and DA: Origins wasn't a whole lot better imo.

Also DAII was really really small in scope, it wouldn't be hard for them to beat it in size.

You don't think a place you haven't seen yet is amazing Satsu?

I've been playing as a human since Origins as well. I did the other origin stories to get the trophies and it proved why I prefer to be a human.

I suspect Bioware's intention of size might be the open world to explore like Skyrim.

There's a chock-ton of Orlais "culture" that's been discussed over the course of the games and I'm not impressed.

Also, you know, there was that guy from the DAII DLC and his gigantic castle so eh

I doubt Bioware are into the business of sandbox. Chances are that maybe they're just putting in less loading screens
