Once again, very intriguing Bioware. Now will you please show us some damned combat footage? Because while I'm increasingly interested in how your interactive-story narrative will work..................we won't be playing with narratives for 20-30hrs.

We DO play with the game's combat system. So we NEED to see it.

Why is EA marketing so absolutely shit? Deadspace marketing and the demo where absolutely dreadful and completely put me off...turns out it was a fantastic game! Same for DA:O! And now this, the more EA yaps on about DA2, the less I'm inclined to ever consider it.

Fact is, I really couldn't give a rats arse about their delusions of grandeur. I want to continue with the characters with the characters that I've spent ages on building and parties that I've had all those adventures with.

Bah.

DA:O its still at $30 new, it cost me that like 2 weeks ago, but if you want this at $20 maybe you could wait a year and buy it used or in a super steam or something sale, and of course you will have to buy the extra content lol.

I got the DA:O Ultimate edition with all the add-ons for $25 during the steam christmas sale. It's not quite that cheap anymore, but it will doubtless go down again at some point.

Yeah you find it in a sale, but the fact that you are waiting for that to happen, I dont think I could do it, if I want the game I buy it.

I pre-ordered it, BUT I will quickly cancel if it looks like it isn't shaping up.

They have been the masters of shitty marketing for 15 years now, that's a hell of a mistake ;)

About the game


What's up?

    Sdarts also angry that he missed out on so much money. And of course, the lack of ownership and direction of the characters' and story's path. Which I'm sure no author likes loosing control over something. (1 minute ago)

  • Megido
    Megido That's actually funny. Zapkowski said that the games aren't canon in his view, but i guess CDPR decieds what's canon and not if they own the IP. Hahaha. (12 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts made, he wouldn't get a penny. Nor have artistic rights to how they should or should not be used. It was a really, really bad deal for him. (13 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: That's true as well. He obviously did a bad job with selling. Also, if I'm not mistaken, CD Projekt RED has the full rights to The Witcher IP, meaning that if any movies or TV show is ever (14 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Also, he wouldn't be whining if he didn't sell his friggin IP instead of taking a cut. (18 minutes ago)
