How's BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins looking these days? Exactly like this. Minus the HUD and featuring unplayable camera angles, obviously, but new screen shots should give you the general impression of the role-playing game's appearance.
Sure, they may not be "the new shit," but they should most definitely dispel any misconceptions that Dragon Age: Origins is overly brown. Just look at all those blues and purples!
Clearly, BioWare's spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate is not just about bloody violence and sexual encounters that span the depths of the uncanny valley. It's also about spells and demons and gentle caresses.
