mass effect 4 or dragon age 3

Curious if anyone has any insights or speculations on which will be released first. I am between games at the moment and realized that while I have played both series through I don't have a "complete" save game with all the parts of the series. I keep thinking I should do a Witcher play through before 3 is released (assume that will beat the Bioware games release date) but just can't bring myself to start the first Witcher, lol.

Mass Effect 4 while being worked on hasn't even been officially announced. Dragon Age III however was announced a year and a half ago and barring any delays will be out this fall.

Excellent, I appreciate the info. I feel better not having to play through The Witcher yet. DAO here I come.

God, why? They're both going to be terrible.

I have a better idea. How about another Ys?
Even though I'm only 29, having played Ys makes me feel old.

ME4 isn't even going to be ME4. It will be based in the ME-verse but will not have Shepard and might have some familiar characters from previous games. There's almost no chance for this game to be good. It will be a spinoff of a trilogy and is developed under EA's guidance.(high budget, rushed development) It will be graphically excellent but buggy, lacking story, and weak content.

DA:I has a slightly better chance because DA's story is still ongoing but it has lost focused as it has become more about the colorful characters(mostly the raunchy fems) than the main character. The game is looking to have yet another main character for the player to temporarily control through this romp in the world of DA. The constant change of characters in an ongoing story makes the games feel very transient and disconnected. EA would prefer the term "stand-alone" game but that makes no sense in a game series with a continuous story.

TLDR; I agree with ShadowTheReaper

This.

Mass Effect is just terrible overall and while some early videos of DA3 look interesting I would be highly skeptical and strongly recommend everyone to just wait for reviews before jumping the gun.

But of course Bioware fanboys will just gobble it up and accept further mediocrity brought to the already battered role playing genre.

Or....they just like it. I know that's a silly idea, people liking things that you don't.

Well, he is right about the games being low quality in comparison to pretty much every other wrpg this gen

Inquisition and Witcher 3 are coming out around the same time this year I think. ME4 you probably shouldn't even be thinking of seeing till late 2015 or 2016. You will have fun with TW1, one of the best series out there, and the story in 1 is better than 2, and the side story modules included in the EE are also worth checking out.
