    I can not wait for this one.
    It's the new shiz!
    Seeing as how "relations" are confirmed to be in the game, I wonder how Fox News will handle the story.

    I love Bioware... Always have (Thank you for Baldurs Gate). They have made some of the best domestic RPGs in the industry and are managing to bring a mature level into their games without drawing attention to them. I am so tempted to buy the Dragon Age book just to support them, but I don't think I'd finish it because of my small attention span.

    I can't wait for their Mass Effect on the Iphone also.

    If this is half as good as other BioWare titles, I will buy.

    I'm just going to be playing it. So I'll stick with the console version, so I don't have to worry about it working or not.

    I can understand that, I'm a little worried if I'll be able to run it or not.

    Problem was that when I got old Morrowind for my PC, the toolset ran well, but the game would only run well if I turned off all the settings, and since I wanted that game so much I ended up keeping the PC version for the tools, and buying the original Xbox one. The framerate kinda sucked, but it was a steady sucked :)

    I cant see the trailer (as i'm at work) and i've never heard of the title, what type of game is it?

    I'm guessing an RPG based off whats being discussed so far.

    Edit - wikipedia says its similar to Baldur's gate....I was terrible at them games but it most likely will be good.

    Mass Effect/Fantasy. Bioware's original venture into RPGs was Baldur's Gate, but they worked on Knights of the Old Republic and then Mass Effect. So this is them taking everything they have learned and going back to Fantasy. This is probably my most anticipated game this year. Bioware has not let me down yet.

    edit: I was reading something a few weeks back. I didn't realize that ME hadn't sold very well. That makes me a sad panda. Well enough to make a sequel, so that makes me a happy panda again.

    I can't wait to see the character generation screens.
    I don't think I've played a Bioware game that let you generate anything other than a human.

    That's the one thing about Bioware games for me thus far-they have forced you into the role of a human. Well, except for Sonic Chronicles. But there was no character generation on that one.

    It didn't? I hadn't realized that.
    I'm surprised because half of the people on my friends list were playing it at one point or another.

    Well I did notice it went to discount faster than I expected. I don't think it flopped by any stretch of the imagination, and it paid BW's bills, but it wasn't like a top seller. It's like 15 bucks at my gamestop.

    All I know is I am going to be a whore for DA. I'll probably buy whatever Special Edition they have. I was showing my fiancee Mass Effect last night (I mean the game, heheh), and explaining why DA will be such a big deal. The character interaction has been honed since BW started it with Knights. It used to be very tiled and obvious, like Freelancer hahaha, but now the tiled cinematics are so fluid that you almost feel like you are watching canned tunes. That coupled with their story-telling, settings and awesome battle system, and we have a field goal.

    Yeah they've come a long way since KOTOR where the main character would stand and shuffle in place raising his eyebrows and scratching his chin. :lolol 

    If Mass Effect is $15, it's the best $15 anyone could spend right now.

    I'm pretty excited for this. Haven't played a bad Bioware game yet. Even the insanely short Jade Empire and weird Sonic Chronicles.

    I was apprehensive about this at first because I didn't think they would really be able to pull off a sort fantasy epic like the space epic they did in Mass Effect. Then I realized that's a stupid fear.

    Ahem, correction.... EBGames.com - Buy Barbie 12 Dancing Princesses - Used - Playstation 2


    Yes, but not because you're stupid for fearing, but because Bioware started in Fantasy, so this is them going out to get some experience and coming back ready to put all that into their original genre. That alone is why I am so excited.
