Re: What games are you playing currently?

I finished my second play through of Super Mario Galaxy today. Still one of the best 3D platformers ever made.

I just started Monster Tale for the DS. It's a fun Metroidvania type game.

I should be playing Dragon Age 2. I'm 15 hours into it but it's such a bad game I haven't touched it in over a week. It's sad to see how far Bioware has fallen.

I also started the third episode of Back to the Future: The Game.


I also finally got my first random hat drop in 230 hours of Team Fortress 2!

Yeah, I'd imagine they're really torn up about being considered one of the top RPG makers in the world and putting out last year's GOTY (effectively tied with Red Dead). I hope they can recover from that all...

Where exactly in my post did I reference Mass Effect 2?

If Bioware keeps on making games with the quality of Dragon Age 2 they won't be considering one of the top RPG makers in the world for much longer. I've played every Bioware game since the first Baldur's Gate (with the exception of the Sonic DS game) and have loved all of the except for Dragon Age 2. The quality of Dragon Age 2 is so far below their other games it's hard to believe it was made by the same studio.

Despite the negative impressions and the poor demo I was willing to give Bioware the benefit of the doubt for Dragon Age 2. I paid $60 and feel incredibly ripped off. I should of waited to buy it until it was on sale on Steam for $10.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I've jumped back onto the Crysis games.... I figured out how to skip past the bugged level so I'm not forever stuck, so I'm going to plow through the first game and the expansion and probably buy the second game tonight.

I don't understand the Dragon Age 2 hate. I think people put their expectations too high, because I love the game and the handful of other people I know playing it also love it as much as the first.

It has problems to be sure - it's not a perfect game. Dungeons need to be unique for one thing. And it's still an odd choice to make a game with no real arcing plotline through it but I still think it worked fairly well. DA2 certainly isn't their best game ever, but I found it more enjoyable than DAO personally and I don't see one game breaking a company. I mean, Jade Empire wasn't all that good and they still managed to muddle through.

Yeah I'm in agreement. I'm not trying to say it's perfect but to read some of the comments on the dragon age forums you'd think the game was just total shit and people should be outraged at the poor followup from dragon age origins.

Well I'm still looking forward to Mass Effect 3 and other future Bioware games. I'm hoping that Dragon Age 2 was just a misstep for Bioware. I also agree that Jade Empire was a bit of a misstep for Bioware (and I consider it their second worse game after Dragon Age 2) but I don't mind it as much because they were trying something different with it.

I think my post came off a little harsh. I'm just going to be a bit more cautiously optimistic about Bioware games in the future, especially about the Dragon Age games.

Jade Empire is actually one of my favorite BioWare games.

I wish we'd get a sequel.

I haven't completed the first yet as other games usually end up taking priority. I would like a sequel someday though.
