They've milked P4 so fucking much that I don't even care about it anymore
It's rapidly approaching there, isn't it. I wonder how much of this has to do with their recent acquisition.
I doubt this game specifically has much to do with the acquisition. Persona 4 Arena had already existed before they were bought and sequels to fighting games with updated characters is incredibly common.
Oh man, this looks so awesome. Main character definitely has an interesting back story thing going on. I really hope this turns out to be great this time. But uh....Why is there no III in the title anymore? Kinda weird. I could have sworn there was at some point.
Also, I don't understand the emphasis they've been putting on Varric, is he actually a popular character among the fanbase? I found him kinda boring and not funny.
Also also, I really hope that pre-order DLC isn't a party member. Bioware has to get over this disgusting little habit.
The game did have 3 in at one point but they dropped it a while ago.
I can't speak for everyone else but I personally loved Varric.
BioWare has gone on record saying that there will be no DLC party members.
I'm coming from the perspective of never having played a Dragon Age game so I'm being judgemental in the most shallow way possible. That's just my 2 cents. I just come from a place that is pleasant rolling hills and ruined castles and all that, so, usually if a setting doesn't reflect that I can't really buy into it, or it's world building has to convince me in some other way. Growing up with Aruthurian legend, this just seems really off some how.
That's kind of like me saying, "This game set in Mexico looks nothing like my New England white suburban neighborhood, so I can't really buy into this." I don't think Dragon Age is really trying to mimic Aruthurian Legend. It takes elements from it and tries make its own world. In short, your right, you do sound shallow.
