Remember when I said I wouldn’t go to BSN again? No? Good. 😉
Gaider discusses companion-related game mechanics in DA3. Since I preferred the DA2 approach to approval and quests, this is a slight disappoinment. Still, there’s still at least one year to go before DA3 hits the shelves. Things may yet change.
As for the reasons for the changes… How companion quests or notifications in the journal are supposed to threaten a player’s agency? Isn’t it good that party members have their own stories and aren’t just sidekicks for the almighty PC?
