What kind of game is this? I mean it says from Bioware...which made the mighty Mass Effect...absolutely loved that game.

It is more an rpg than Mass Effect is, but the banter system should be somewhat similar. Fighting will not be a 3rd person shooter like ME, but more like KOTOR with the added ability to zoom out and with 3 companions instead of 2. You can play this game, so it will feel almost like Baldur's Gate of old (not BG Dark Alliance but BioWare's BG).

Imo the graphics can look pre-gen - just as long as the core rpg mechanics and storyline will be the usual BioWare standard.

My most wanted game of the year.

I seriously hope it doesn't even elude to the kotor2 combat system...it would be nice to have a fluid moving system...if i want turn based menu stuffs...i'd go to Squaresoft.

It's basically the spiritual successor of Baldur's Gate 2.

Awesomeness guaranteed!!!

Yup!

I wish they would show the console control scheme though.

For me it looks more of a successor to NWN, which I didn't like much.

I swear I've already seen this trailer? Well, that gameplay snippet is definitely familiar.

Anyway, I don't know what to make of this anymore. 'Bioware + medieval RPG' should be making me weep with excitement, but the more I see of it, the less convinced I am that it's going to be as good as I had initially hoped.

I guess it's a different way to look at it. I still think Baldurs gate 2 is one of the best if not THE best RPG I've ever played...

The marketing of this game has been pretty bad, I was excited for this a few months ago and when it was announced, but now I've lost all interest. It definitely isn't bringing any Baldur's Gate, and at best is reminding me a bit of neverwinter nights. I'm starting to think that they've taken an entirely wrong approach to making this game, just looks very boring overall now. Also what's up with the blood splatter logo, is it meant to hip or something?

Did you play Planescape: Torment?

Doesn't look as interesting as Mass Effect 2. I kinda have a bad feeling about this game....I think the Jade Empire team is developing it (JE paled in comparison to KoToR)

BioWare has made their own graphics engine Eclipse for Dragon Age. One of the features is, that when you do battle blood will be splattered on your armor / body - that splatter will remain, which especially will be noticeable during banters.

Blood splatter is the new black... :)

I agree JE was pretty weak on the story and char development...but the game play was a lot more fun than kotor imo. interesting to know the je team is on it....we'll just see.
