Dragon Age, Over and Over

Posted by deckard47 on February 8, 2009

I’ve been remiss in not posting this, so here it is. There are a whole lot of Dragon Age videos from Comic Con, and these first two are of a new section ( I don’t think we’ve seen t before), where the mage hero and her cohorts attack a bunch of dark guys (who I know aren’t called “Morlocks,” but “Genlocks” is so close…), and eventually some mini-siege engines. That’s what the first two are of, and they spend most of their time in the game’s Mass Effect-ish camera mode, where characters can be controlled directly or put on auto-pilot (like ME or KotoR). I just realized that Mass Effect abbreviated spells me! Weird. Anyway, at the end of the videos they switch to the good old NWN/Baldur’s Gate 2 vision, which is good to see. I’m hoping that this will be runnable by whatever crap computer I have then, because it looks amazing. I really don’t want to break down and get the console version, we saw what happened with their last effort on a non-PC platform. There’s two other videos up there, one that shows the big battle cutscene (after you’ve lit the signal fire post-ogre killing), and a higher res version of the siege weapon assault that the first two videos show. In this last one, it seems like a non-Bioware person is playing. Instead of doing everything slowly, they switch between PCs at will, pausing as soon as enemies die, making sure everyone is doing their job. Good times. Looks like this might actually be “spiritually” related to BG after all. Excellent.
