As the launch for Destiny of Velious didn’t go too smoothly (these things never do ;)) I ended up re-running the final part of Dragon Age in order to change the ending and downloading & playing the Dragon Age 2 Demo.
It was good fun replaying it, poor Ohgren wasn’t setup as a tank but he did just fine. This time I got the ending I wanted – it feels finished now 😉 I did start Awakenings with a new rogue but am missing suzita’s gear and levels so she may be temporarily resurrected. As this is probably my last post for Dragon Age: Origins, here are far too many screenies of the ending ;):
Dragon Age 2 looks like its going to be good fun. I played the demo and it feels very different to Origins but very familiar at the same time. It has a new super slick UI which although it looks good, doesn’t feel very fantasy rpg. I like the new hotbar, much less noticeable than the old one. The new combat system is a bit of surprise – it is very fast and stylised (lots of leaping and cool moves), I do like it though its a lot of fun to watch and much more responsive. The conversation wheel is a good improvement I think. You get 3 styles of response to choose from (e.g. peaceful, sarcastic, humour). The introduction with Varric narrating your story to the Chantry Seeker will be quite a fun and interesting narrative device I think. Overall I think its going to be fun 🙂
Finally check out these screenshots for Elder Scroll V: Skyrim (old news now but still… drool!) and an enigmatic shot released for wallpaper,
with the first in-game look at Skyrim being posted in 18 hours from the time I post this.
*edit* click the wallpaper link above, the trailer is up and…. well… nothing I can say will do it justice 😉
