Shale clearly fit right into DAO but she was DLC as well, just more cared for.
Whoa. The hair isn't braided or plastic looking anymore? Awesome and nice beards. This is how Mass Effect should tackle character creator. My custom guy needs to look as good as default and fit in with everyone else. I'm totally going to make Conan o'Brien now.
Bethany looks really weird in the 2nd to last picture in the first row.
" Shit, I must have played a different Dragon Age: Origins to some people on here. I don't remember this vibrant, colourful world they played in, I don't remember the amazing UI and menu they had and I don't remember the out of this world combat. I remember the world being pretty brown and uninteresting, I remember the UI being a piece of crap that needed modding to be usable and I remember the combat being a tad slow and monotonous. But then again the main reason I've played 138 hours of Dragon Age is because I loved the story, the characters and RPG aspects of the game. Something that people seem to be forgetting is that none of the parts that made the first game great have been show. All these people who are now cancelling their pre-orders because a camera angle and minor changes to the combat clearly didn't enjoy the first game at all because they could see past these minor changes/annoyances and want to play the game for it's main appeal. The story. Then again what the fuck would you bitch and moan about then. DLC and pre-order bonuses probably. "Can you say that from the demo the game is any less brown? The start is a giant brown field. At least DAO had some detail to some areas. But then again, i've seen very little of DA2's environments. combat is just as slow, there is now just more flash (not necisarily a good thing) and less shuffling (a good thing). The new dialogue system is probably my least favorite change they've made and that deals with how i'll play the story which i agree is the best part of dragon age.
I love the dwarves. I'll miss Oghren, but Varric seems alright. I hate how he'll only carry that crossbow though. I'm all for dwarves being rogues, but it's strange. He's probably the character I'm most interested in seeing other than Anders.
