    Right now I'm really scared Bioware will fuck up ME4 like they fucked up Dragon Age 3. Why can't these people just stick to the successful recipe and just need to fuck shit up?!

    If I had to guess (EDIT: HOPE), I'd say they will be moving the series in a more customizable direction. I think they painted themselves into a corner letting Shepherd become larger than life and the "OMG EPIC STORY" became larger than the gameplay. I'd bet on the story revolving around your decisions and other characters moreso than YOU. I'm hoping whoever YOU are is irrelevant - which would pave the way for different races/ships etc. It's more sustainable as far as a series goes, and it allows for more narrative freedom. Mass Effect suffered from major tunnel vision after the first game, or at least I perceived it as such.

    I'd prefer it if the game focused on smaller, less connected stories that offered more variety and from different perspectives rather than a runaway locomotive space opera where everything is significant and the main story is so pervasive. I guess I just prefer the way Bethesda does it, where the main story is a small fraction of the game. Isn't Dragon Age:I like this too though?

    One cool way to accomplish this would be have no main character. You can play as any squadmate you want most of the time, but you must play as certain members for their "loyalty missions".

    They've already confirmed the protagonist will be human only :P

    Well they did fuck up some stuff in ME3 as well. The atrocious journal and ridiculous amount of pointless fetch quests for example.

    Maybe because playing the same game for decades is boring? If you want the "successful recipe", you are free to play the older games, but most people want something new to play, not Baldur's Gate recycled the 100000th time.

    How did they fuck up DA3? Other than DA: Origin super fanboys, it has gotten a pretty good reception.

    In fact, on, for example, IGN it got the community rating of 9.1, exactly as much as DAO got.

    Technically we had two Normandy's. The SR-2 is a remake of the destroyed SR-1.

    DA3 was a fuck up?

    That's news to me. Both my Inquisitors would like a word with you . . .
