Boring Conversation Anyway

Boring Conversation Anyway

by Steve Napierski to Videos

I sometimes think that BioWare deliberately gives the most unexpected response to dialog choices. “They’ll think they’re being nice, but what they are really doing is starting an intergalactic civil war.” Lord help us all if BioWare ever decides to get into the business of peace treaties.

    That’s why I follow the Bioware mantra:
    Top text good. Bottom text bad.

    Umm….so…since Beta, SW:TOR has these icons next to dialogue choices that will clearly grant you points toward good or bad. So..that pretty blue star = good guy choice, that red and black diamond = bad guy choice. It’s not that complicated. I mean dont get me wrong I loved the video and laughed, but if the creators who posted that were in anyway being serious and trying to make a legitimate slam on the game = epic fail

      To be fair There were times in Mass effect 1 and 3 that even knowing the choices on the top are good and the ones on the bottom are bad, that the Characters don’t do what you expect because they stylize the response.

    Also, it’s all too easy to just hit “esc” and start the conversation over if it’s not going your way.
