That's actually perfectly fine, I don't think anyone seriously thinks there are going to be 40 different pre-rendered cutscenes. That'd be great (unless you want to platinum it and one of the trophies is "Seen all the endings") but it's a completely unreasonable expectation. It's probably going to be slides and different character dialogue at the end, which if it's different based on what my actions were will suit me fine. If it's the same cutscene with different filters I'd actually be ok with it too in a "You got me again you cheeky bastards" way before never buying one of their games again. At least I'd leave with a laugh.ArkhamJester said:Anyone here remember a little game called Star Ocean: the second story? On the back of the box promised 86 different endings! In reality the actual number was closer to 8-10, the rest was viciously padded out with minor tweaks on these core endings. Said tweaks were almost entirely based on how you treated your party members and your relationship values with them. mark my words, Dragon Age Inquisition is going to pull a second story and have about 5-10 actual endings with the other 30-35 declared "unique" endings based on your character relationships.
No, it's much more intense.mrverbal said:Green, yellow, pink, beige, puce, chartruse, aqua, scarlett, black, grey, amber, orange,.....
Look, hopefully this is them picking up the pieces from a trainwreck and a near trainwreck (which of DA2 and ME3 is which is left as an exercise for the reader) and ends up being amazing. Until I see that, however, they are still on my "handle with caution" list.
While I normally would agree in any other topic (its been two years and some people still won't let it go), I think that the ending of ME3 is topical right now. This is the first single-player rpg Bioware has released since that whole mess happened. The comparisons are not only inevitable but, in my opinion, necessary to remind both sides of the fence how much was promised (and, ultimately, undelivered) last time they had a shot at this.The Great JT said:Sounds interesting, Bioware.
Also, anyone who brought up Mass Effect 3's endings, please report to the volcano. The Volcano God will have words with you after you receive the customary boot in the ass.
Cecilo said:Yea, Sure, 40 different endings. Just like Mass Effect 3 was supposed to have so and so amount of endings.
Honestly, I could just go about quoting this entire damn chat so far. I will admit, the world and such sound interesting. However, this is truly a case of lost faith that will be extremely difficult to rebuild.Mr Ink 5000 said:40 different ending? this is madness! I dont even know 40 different colours?!
yupp. this is deja vu from mass effect 3 pretty hardcore.Milky1985 said:TBH i suspect again they are shooting themselves in the foot due to over-hyping. What will actually happen is that there will be points in the game where a event happens and you can solve it in one of 2 or 3 ways, a good, bad or neutral way, and this will be reflected in the ending (so now you have 3 endings).
There will then be another event which can be solved in a similar situation, but now they will count the showing of the results of this combined with the last one as a separate ending, so now you have 9 endings, (good-good, good-neutral etc)
And so on, so if there are 3 ways of dealing with it, it only takes 4 "events" to make the 40 different endings , about 5 or 6 to make the 40. Don't' get me wrong this could work, but the amount of binary moral choices that are happening in games nowerdays make me cynical when they come out with stuff like this.
This is of course assuming they are not talking out of there behinds, and also assuming by 40 different endings they don't just mean different parts of the colour spectrum (although the brown ending could be funny)
