[multi] Bioware's Dragon Age Origins

Couldn't really see a dedicated thread for this. But happy to be merged elsewhere if the mods want to.

First of all, here are the latest 2 trailers for it (I'm sure Sacred Ashes must have been linked elsewhere, but here for the sake of completeness and ):

Sacred Ashes:


Meet Oghren:



Also, you have the ability to unlock items when the game is released.

First of all by downloading the character creator and making a char: http://blog.bioware.com/2009/10/13/c...ocial-network/

Quote:
This old stone, set in a golden ring, has been an aid and companion to dozens of adventurers across innumerable years. Its trip to Ferelden was long and convoluted. Some say it has a life of its own.
Stats:
~ Adds +1 to all all stats.
And by playing the prelude to the story in the form of a flash game: http://www.dragonagejourneys.com/

It's a party based, turn based RPG flash game and it's actually very well made too.

I've pre-ordered the PC version. Really looking forward to it.

looks absolutely awesome. Got the collectors edition pre-ordered on PC.

The surprisingly good flash game is out now if anyone is interested...

EDIT: sorry just realised the flash game was mentioned in the OP

I see my question during the Bioware live interview last night didn't get answered. More or less asked them did they regret the terrible advertising which made the game look bloody awful 'this is the new ****' when in fact with the reviews and other peoples impressions are a lot more positive and make the game a lot more mature and interesting than it came across as.

I've pre-ordered the regular edition from Game for £24.99. Downloaded the character creator and played through Dragon Age Journeys so I have a few items unlocked already, not that they're going to be game changing unlocks, but every little helps. I'm not too concerned with the complaints about graphics and animation as gameplay > graphics for me.

The game looks like something I'll really enjoy, so I'm looking forward to it, but the graphics in regard to the character models look utterly atrocious.

I'm impressed that free DLC is being released the same day as the game.

This is a smart move. One piece of DLC gives you the chance to recruit a new party member that's supposed to be one of the best tanks in the game.

The Stone Prisoner.

Wish I still had a PC to play this on. I will have to get the 360 version but it is so expensive and probably not as good.

I take it the character creation add on only applies to the final PC version and not 360? Does the Flash game unlock on the 360 too, or just PC?

EDIT - In relation to my first query just seen this footer on this page:

Quote:
*Item is available on all platforms by logging into the game with same account used to upload your character
Agreed this looks the business

Must admit I watched the interview on my 360 last night and thought it looked great! The world they've created looks impressive, the kind to totally immerse you into the story...typically Bioware really!

Shame I don't have a decent PC to play this on, but am mighty tempted to get it on my 360 instead...it's just not quite the same though, playing it on a console! Hmmmmm!

Are you seriously supposed to play through Dragon Age Journeys 3x times to unlock that helm?

I've already played it for about 6 hours and only just finished it with a Mage.

Played a 2 level 360 demo of this at the EA rooms at Comic Con and its superbly solid and satisfying. Also had an onscreen demo there hosted in person by the game devs of higher level classes and combat.

And got given an inflatable Dragon Age sword that I have still yet to blow up

It's a single player game with an editor (which means that free items offered by various sources can be recreated, although, obviously, Collector's Edition physical extras can't). So I'm not spending too much time wondering who to order it from.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the demo, Terribly_Mauled. Really looking forward to the game.

I paid £39.99 for the Deluxe edition on Steam and then realised I could have ordered the bog-standard one for considerable less on shopto.net

Looking foward to this, it's actually the first PC game i've bought since Crysis! (Though I have just built a new PC)

Shame it comes out pretty much the same time as Modern Warfare 2 though.
