Well, after KOTOR, BioWare is officially pimped out for RPG's, and they're coming out with two new ones sometime in the future and I was wondering if anyone had seen them before.

Jade Empire (http://www.jade-empire.com)
(Sadly, only for XBox.)

Dragon Age (http://www.bioware.com/games/dragon_age/)
(Not very far into development, but it was voted best of show for E3 2004.)

Edit: Dragon Age will also be shipped with mod tools to let players create custom content.

Bioware is the only RPG maker that I can appreciate.

Yes, Bioware is just about my favorite developer right now - I play too much NWN. :cool:

Bioware games are truly sweet. Neverwinter Nights was a game that I played for a long time, but I sold it because I hated that they released 2 expansions, which weren't really cheap either :/

But I think KOTOR is their best game!

The only two things that may seem disturbing is that they don't really do games for all engines and they always use NWN gameplay style, which is a +/- to some gamers.

Bioware rocks for me because they made NWN, probably my favorite game.

I can't believe you all forgot classic developers such as Black Isle, Interplay (rest in peace), and Origin (Systems).

Shame on you all.

Nopah, Bioware is in charge of Jade Empire. Molyneux is the head of lionhead studios :)

NWN was a sweet game and I can see Dragon Age doing just as well. Lets hope Obsidian does a good job with NWN 2 :p

Sucks that Jade Empire is XBOX only, I was looking forward to that one :(

Shadows of Undrentide may have sucked, but Hordes of the Underdark ruled.

SoU was merely Okay, HotU was the good expansion, SoU didn't have many new things, really.

I like how they innovate with KOTOR and the new Jade Empire. With the different settings and and stories.

But I wish they would do that more than keep on churning out the same old D&D clones year after year.


INNOVATION SON!

Indeed ! :p

there are only 4 things I would paint myself like Rambo and go to war for :

1. Someone attacked Australia
2. Someone attacked my homeland, Cyprus(.........)
3. Someone needed an army to help capture GW, tar and feather him, and dip him in a vat of boiling dogsh*t
4. Someone attacked Bioware :p

oh, ok

5. Someone attacked square/enix (they better come up with the biz in FF12!)

but...Jade Empire isn't even going to be the same style of RPG as KOTOR.....and KOTOR was vastly different from Baldurs Gate series.....I mean, they're a company that makes RPG's, what do you expect? :xp:

I never followed the romantic sidequest with Viconia, because I was never evil:(, but I did go after Jaheira and Aerie :)

I wasn't referring to them in that way. I was say ing they were something different. And I liked that.

I was talking about their otehr projects, and some very similar ones from other companies.


SO MAYBE YOU UNDERSTAND ME NOW? ;)

When i played Baldurs Gate, i knew no one would never do such a really cool game...unfortunatly i bought NWN thinking that it'd be like BG but it really sucked.. :rolleyes: (comparing it to BG)

I have to agree with you on that one..... the story and the characters didn't really grab me, unfortunately. Besides, I'd prefer a game with excellent 2d graphics over crappy 3d graphics (imo NWN's graphics weren't on par with other games of that time).

Bioware is pretty sweet, and actually my cousin is friends with a guy that works there. I was really close to actually going there last summer and this summer so maybe next year. Right now its looks pretty glum for a KOTOR 3, seeing as LucasArts fired the developmental team for it. But who knows seeing as its a long ways off.

YOU VILE VILE BASTARD!! Picking up on the woman who lost her husband. For shame:tsk:

Yea I went after Aerie with my Archer and I went after Viconia with my...Paladin...of all classes...how horrible...

Did you get Aerie pregnant? I did:D My Archer was sexy!

My mage was her soulmate :D

I was going to ask if you had to be evil to follow the romance with Viconia, but I guess if you were a Paladin when you did it then my question is answered :D


I'm probably going to play through again (4th or 5th time I think) as a mage (again) and try to hook it up with Viconia

I dunno about that being a mage thing. You should either be a sorcerrer or one of them wild mages. They kick ass.

those battle scenes from that dragon age game look pretty stunning... it will be cool if there is finally an RPG where you can become involved in huge conflicts (LOTR style).

On an RPG-but-not-bioware-note, FABLE has gone gold apparently...

I trust critics about as far as I can throw em. Even if I could throw them very far, and throw them I shall!

Mincs was a goofy goofy bastard.

BOO!!!
