    ME3 multiplayer was fun and surprisingly well-implemented, but I would've gotten rid of it in a second for more single-player content. Not once in all my many, many playthroughs of DAO and yes, even DA2, have I EVER thought to myself "Hmm, you know what this needs? Multiplayer!" Of course the BioWare who made DAO and the one making this game are two entirely different teams, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that as the hype train rolls on for DA:I I feel only cynicism with every new revelation. BioWare are the RPG masters in name only - the true creators have long since disappeared like so much dust in the EA wind.

    I poured hundreds of hours into Mass effect 3 multiplayer. I was very sick at the time, and first person shooter games were to intense, and competitive for me at the time. I started playing Mass Effect 3's MP on bronze, and as the weeks went by I got stronger, and was able to do silver. after several months, i was soloing gold runs, and that's when i knew i could finally start playing more competitive games again. I may not be sick this time around, but I'll be hitting up that multiplayer like crazy..... after i put 1000+ hours into the main campaign...... I'm probably not joking. I eat up, pretty much anything from Bioware. Played through the entire mass effect series 6 times. I did everything right, and completed EVERYTHING. Literally. 6th play through was with a game guide. Hey, i did the first 5 times with out one, so cut me some slack. I invested so much time, and energy with that series, that the ending really hit me hard. but hey. i had so much fun with everything before the ending, that i could deal with it. The dragon age series!!! I've played them all. multiple times. even the not so great ones. Loved Origins the best. I played through it so many times, i lost track. there was SO much replay ability in the dragon age games. Every time, was like a whole new game. i took different paths, with different choices, and endings. I honestly can't wait till Dragon Age Inquisition comes out. Thank the gaming gods i have destiny to hold me over till then. :) And thank you Games Radar for offering anything dragon age related in an easy to find manner. Rather than scouring the Interwebz during my valuable game time, I can come right here, for my dragon age fix...

    If I can safely ignore it without it being detrimental to my single-player experience, then sure Bioware, knock yourselves out.

    I was mad when I found out I had to play MP to boost my ratings in the ME3 campaign till I tried it out. I sunk a lot of hours into it now. I normally don't play shooters, absolutely loath them on consoles - just can't hack the controls. ME3 got me hooked though, so easy to fire up and run a quick match while waiting for something. I'm both happy they are including something like this in DAI and NOT linking it to progress in the campaign. Cautiously Optimistic.

    Games like The Darkness 2, Far Cry 3, ME3, and AC3 all had similar co-op modes that only amused me for a few hours. I don't image Dragon Age 3 will be any different. Still, there are definitely people who love this sort of thing and will be pleased to hear about it. I'm just not one of them.

    RAGE INCOMING Nice preview though Lorenzo, I'm looking forward to this. I might actually give the multiplayer a shot, it sounds a little like gauntlet with somewhat customizable characters to use. I don't want classes that never change at all, but I also don't want classes that can be changed into something completely different. It seems they're going for that balance here.
