xx Next big RPG for Xbox/PS3
« Thread started on: Nov 8th, 2012, 6:16pm »

As someone who love's RPG's it seems to me that the genera seems to be dying out somewhat when it comes to the console format. Bioware are slowly having the life choked out of them by EA and the fact that their co founders have now suddenly retired does not fill me with much hope for the future. Bethesda made the epic adventure that is Skyrim but now seem to be moving on to making an MMO. Outside of these two companys RPG's are scarce on the console and I dont really see anything new on the horizon.

For any of you guys who like these types of games have you seen anything you think will be worth playing? Or what would you like to see someone step up and make?.........And no I've not forgotten about DA3 but as above Bioware are hardly inspiring confidence.

You should check out Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning, The Witcher 2, Dragon's Dogma, Mass Effect 3: Omega, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim-Dragonborn

Thanks Chris. I always keep up on Skyrim/ ME:3 DLC packages but will take a look at the others for sure.

I've got and played Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning and it's a huge game world and a silent protagonist like Skyrim and as a compelling main storyline like Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Origins. It has an all-star creative team behind it, Ken Rolston it's lead developer was the same guy who helped create Oblivion. R.A. Salvatore (writer of several Dungeons and Dragons novels) is the head writer and creator of the world. Spawn creator and comic book artist Todd McFarlane is creative director of it. It's been out since February.

The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings-The Enhanced Edition is the Xbox 360 version of the PC game it's a beautiful looking game and it's story is hard to follow due to it being a sequal to a PC only game (it gives you the backstory of the first game through comic book like flashbacks) and it's combat takes a lot of getting used to, I gave up on it due to my not caring for the main character, but a lot of people love it and many Dragon Age: Origins gamers (a lot of them are PC gamers and despise console gamers) this what Bioware should have done with Dragon Age II at least story wise.

hmmmmm I watched video reviews for both of them on IGN, gotta say they both look really good.

Think I'll finish up my ME:3 achievements with my current Insanity playthrough, along with Omega when it hits then buy one or both of these for sure.

Kudos for the recommendations Mr Back. Much appreciated!

Bought The Witcher 2! So far I'm quite enjoying it, with quite an intriguing plot unfolding it's hard to stop playing. Although I must admit I do prefer a party system to the whole lone wolf approach and the navigation system is a bit of a pain in the ass at times. All in all though a very good game indeed, much better than DA:2.
