Impressions of Dragon Age and Divinity II

Posted in news, pc rpg games  on September 16th, 2009 by: ian

If you are interested in either Dragon Age or Divinity II then you should check out RPGamer’s PAX Impressions of these games.  You can find the Dragon Age preview here and the Divinity II preview here.

I’m really looking forward to Dragon Age, but I think Divinity will go onto my ‘ones to watch list’

and I’ll keep an eye on it.  With Dragon Age you pretty much know that you’ll be getting a fun game with an immersive story (something I always really like)  but it sounds like Bioware are really going all out to make the preview experience memorable.  If they’re half as creative in the game as they seem to be in the previews then it should be great fun!

What games are you looking out for in the rest of year?

What are the most anticipated pc rpg games of 2009?

RPGWatch has an article up about their most anticipated computer role-playing games scheduled for release in 2009.  It comprises both the editors’ choices and a poll results of their readers.

Up first from the readers we have Dragon Age: Origins and I think this line explains why, ‘There’s no

Dragon Age: Origins

doubting their success since then but many fans hold Baldur’s Gate II as their best game, so the idea that Dragon Age represents a spiritual successor is powerful’.  Baldur’s Gate II was one of the best rpgs that I have played, so if Bioware can even come close then it should be incredible.

Second in the readers top three is Age of Decadence, an indie old-school rpg that has massive potential.  I’m going to hold off on getting too excited about this one myself just yet though, as the Iron Tower team have yet to publish a game,

but if it lives up to it’s potential then as the poll suggests it could quite easily beat the majority of AAA titles that will be coming out this year.

Number three is Diablo 3, ’nuff said.  We’ll see if Blizzard manage to re-create the magic of the original two, though hopefully the hype won’t be so great that people can only de disappointed.

The editors’ list also includes Dragon Age, but also includes Divine Divinity 2 and Risen.  I don’t know anything about Risen but the Divine Divinity sequel is one that I am looking forward to.  While I wasn’t blown away by the original it waws fun and if the sequel can improve on the first then I will definitely enjoy it.
