First off, Eurogamer is bringing it. Lots of good stuff over there today.
Like this little number with EA’s Frank Gibeau regarding the reaction to Dragon Age II from a good chunk of the fanbase. Going so far as to admit “we lost some fans” with the release of the DA sequel.
“We’re very proud of the game. We tried to innovate and do some different things with the combat system and some of the way we told story. For some fans it worked well. In fact, we brought a lot of new fans into the Dragon Age franchise. But to be honest, we lost some fans as well. They were not pleased with some of the innovations and things we’d done. We understand that and we’re listening.”
It’s a good read and I like that the company is listening to feedback. Then multiplayer is mentioned and I start to get worried.
