Finished the prologue last night.  This game is a lot of fun, but the whole point and click tactical camera thing on the PC is going to take some getting used to.  I don't feel safe leaving my companion AIs to fight on their own because I'm afraid they'll get themselves killed.  Really wish I could more tightly customize their tactics, but work with what you have, I guess.

Yes, you will be able to listen to the soundtrack after downloading it. Heres a taste of the music with a combat theme:

Thanks.  I found the soundtrack after some digging.  It really is some beautiful work.

Preloading the Digital Deluxe version through Origin now.  Naturally, I won't be able to play it until release night, but I hope I can at least access the soundtrack that comes with it.  The main theme makes me melt every time I hear it and I'm hoping the rest of the music is just as epic.

Thinking about it, I now recall that I used mods to change the appearance of most of DA:O. I modded:
- Alistair
- Morrigan
- Leliana
- Wynne
- Sten
(no mods for Oghren or Zevran because I don't like them; not because they look any good)

In DA2 though, the only character I modded was Aveline (I've spoken prior of my opinion of her chin/jaw)

I guess the DA2 characters did look better.

In some cases for me, it was just little tweaks that made an improvement instead of complete overhauls.  For instance, a change of hairstyle for Morrigan or giving Leliana's hair a deeper shade of red made a world of difference.   It was the same case with Aveline where removing her headband and giving her some fringe with a mod made her worlds better, even with the lantern jaw of justice.

More often than not, it was their outfits that I enjoyed playing with.  There are quite a few outfits out there that make things a lot less drab in Origins, Awakening, and II.  Especially Fenris, because nothing says "badass glowbug elf" like a long coat with gauntlets.

Yeah, I'd heard that too.  Not that it would stop anyone from trying, but we'll see.

I am a bit dissapointed in the characters that are in this game. I am not saying that all video game women have to look amazing and I am for diversity, but they could have put one attractive female in the game considering that there will be romance in this game. DA2 has Isabela and they managed to make her interesting and she felt strong in her own way. She was not just a pretty face. There are ways to not be sexist but still make attractive characters.

It is telling that the hottest character in the game is a guy (Dorian) and I am not even gay.

Now before you dismiss this as a ranting by a lonely teenage boy I am actually close to 30 and getting married soon. I would not care much if it wasn't for the fact that there is romance in the game.

It is a minor concern however and I will still like the game either way.

Well, for the PC gamers at least, there'll likely be the inevitable appearance mods from people who'll share your view.  I'll see how the vanilla content looks on my screen before doing that, though.

I've just started a new playthrough of Dragon Age II, male warrior Hawke.  Not so much for save data content as just for fun.  As someone who has played as a mage pretty much every other time, there's just something very fun about ramming someone in the face with your shield from across the battlefield.  Complete with that satisfying CLANG noise upon impact.

Sorta amusing since I'm playing the PS2 version on the PS2 right now.  Because COR BLIMEY!  :O

Hoping that people are enjoying the iVersion.

Both Steam and GOG, $19.99


Looks like they have backported the enhancements in the PSP version to the PC release so that's pretty cool.

Been waiting for this!  Time to throw more money at Steam and XSeed.

Actually.. anyone understands what is meant by:
- Rogues will now have access to use bows.

I mean I could use a bow in DA:O and DA2 on my rogue and there were skills for them too.
I think that maybe you had to take the first bow skill as a rogue before you had access to using the bow? Alternatively it might be referring to companion rogues (excluding Varric since I am sure he will exclusively use Bianca)?
If you were a rogue, you could equip a bow from the get go in Origins/Awakening and 2.  Warriors could also use bows in Origins/Awakening.

So no idea why that'd change in this one.

Line from the video...
"But think of the mayhem, Sera.  Maaaaayheeeeeem!"

Iron Bull totally won me over with that comment alone.

I agree that it's too early to decide on a "final" party just yet, but reading about them ahead gives me a idea of what to expect about them going in.  I seriously doubt we've heard anywhere near these characters whole stories just yet, but I'm intrigued enough to actually want to know more.  Only way that'll happen will be to play the game and feel them out.

Been reading through the character profiles and interviews on the main site and they're starting to look more interesting than I thought they'd be.  Even Dorian with his Porn 'Stache of Power.

I didn't know about that, but it's no biggie now.  I'll be happy to have DDS in my hands one way or another.

Yet another legend on the PSN.  It's awesome to be able to play Nocturne and DDS since I missed out before.  Well, I managed to find a hard copy of Nocturne, but DDS is damn near impossible to find nowadays.

I'm just looking forward to playing a proper Warrior Mage again.  As much as I enjoyed DA2, I missed being able to slice and dice things apart in addition to blowing new craters into the ground.  And no, whacking things with my blade on a stick just did not feel the same.

But thats basically want you did with an Arcane Warrior, whack people with your blade aka Auto attack. Whats the difference? I'm hoping this knight enchanter makes a warrior mage more engaging to play than just auto attacks.

True.  Then again, I'm too used to playing Origins with mods on the PC version.  Several of which allowed you to have the Warrior Talents once you learned the Arcane Warrior specialization.  That made the specialization a lot more fun to play.  I'm hoping the Knight Enchanter allows more to do without having to mess around with mods as much, that took some time to learn to figure out.
