The trailers are looking good, so good in fact that I don't know if my machine will be able to handle it. I don't know how explicit the sex will be, if you only see what's in the trailers I guess it's nothing we haven't seen before but considering the ridiculous mass effect controversy I don't know...

I don't think it'll be too demanding, the developers haven't said much about system requirements on the forums other than that going from a dual core to quad cores won't make all that much difference in performance in DA, the biggest leap for processors is between single and dual cores. So by the sounds of things it won't need a brand new computer just to run. They haven't said anything about graphics cards yet though.

The official release date for North America is October 20th. No idea when it's out here (Europe) but going by past BioWare games it should be between a few days to two weeks later.

Shame its still so far away, especially because im reading the prequel novel right now, so its like...ME WANTS GAME NOW!

Still, it should be epic, and if not, its gonna be good.  I have never disliked a game ive played with Biowares name on it.

I don't know, Bioware screwed up big time with NWN2's optimization and material compatibility. I really hope they learned from their mistakes with this game D:

No, that was Obsidian. It may've been built off of an engine Bioware made, but The Witcher did better with that same base engine and you can overhaul it to be nearly unrecognizable as Valve did with the Source engine (I've read that it still technically uses a small amount of code from the Gold Source engine, which was their modified Quake engine).

With that said Bioware themselves isn't really much better, just look at how KotOR1 was kind of choppy and Mass Effect doesn't even need an explanation.

It's amazing how many people think NWN2 is made by Bioware, reading other forums I still see comments about how bad Dragon Age is supposedly going to be because they didn't like NWN2.

What's the problem with Mass Effect's performance? Other than the DRM, which was EA's decision, I don't see any issue. It runs very smoothly on a budget PC I bought last year. On that note, DA isn't going to have any DRM, just a DVD check.

I'm referring to the 360's performance actually. On PC it sounds like it's fine, but they ARE making their own engine for this, and KotOR ran kind of choppily at times too. We'll see how it goes.

Dragon Age has Captain Janeway!

E3 video of a fight against a red dragon and some dialogue leading up to it.

So, Dragon Age Origins is going to have a CE at $15 more, and... god dammit it has a Mass Effect 2 item code. This is a problem for me because I started ME on the 360 and intend to follow the series on that, but I intend to get DA:O on the PC.

If ME2 is anything like the first game, one single item won't make much of a difference to your experience. The frequency of loot in that game was incredibly high and most of it didn't affect the difficulty much.

That said, the bonus may turn out to be platform-independant. I'm a regular on the DAO forums so if I hear anything on it I'll let you know.

I'd actually have more respect for Bioware, if they had made NWN2. It's MUCH better than the first one.

The funny thing is, Dragon Age was my most anticipated game, but the more I learn about it, the less I want it, and it's a good possibility I'll be passing on it.

I just hope EA isn't fucking with it, I suspect the music in the trailers and their style is their work but if marketting's the limit then it'll probably be fine.

Honestly, EA seems to be a much better company as of late, letting teams do their own thing, not messing around to much.  I highly doubt they would muck with Biowares stuff.  Ive got the CE Pre ordered, sadly its been delayed until November 3rd, but ahh well.

The collectors edition bonus item for ME2 (which is some armour) isn't platform dependant, so Eusis you can go ahead and get DAO for the PC and ME2 the Xbox 360.

EDIT: That item isn't exclusive to the CE, it's available to anyone who buys the standard edition new too.
