YAY! Dragon Age 2. 

Posted by ScottG13

Finally! Some gameplay.
Edited by Yummylee

Noicccccccccccccce 
 
They weren't kidding with the change of style. Looks like something out of Darksiders. 
 And yes! The option to toggle visibility of the characters helmet!

Edited by ashbash

This is just what I was looking for! 
 
Edit: Oh, 11 minutes isn't as much as I was hoping.

Please tell me there is going to be more detail on your companion status bars.  Those look awful

Edited by Krystal_Sackful

I am eager to see this. And make sure the gameplay isn't like dynasty warriors.
EDIT: IT IS DYNASTY WARRIORS FFFFFFFFF

looks like dragon age so pretty awesome.

 I loved Dragon Age & Awakening but it seems like they really dumbed down everything that made the first game great.

Whoa!  Whoa!   WHOA!
 
Time for the truth, does it suck or not?

Posted by SpartanAmbrose

TRULY THIS IS THE AGE OF BIOWARE SEQUELS!

Holy crap! That was unexpected.

One of my most anticipated games this year. Haters be damned!

 Interesting that DAII looks a lot more actiony and streamlined like Mass Effect 2 was compared to ME1    

Edited by gosukiller

Now my standards may be too high, since I've only played the PC version, but this looks quite bad detail wise and even worse information-on-screen wise. 
 
Still, I'll reserve judgement untill I've had the PC version in front of me. I loved the shit out of DA:O. 
The spellbook-menu seems far more interesting than the original though, me like.

The main question in my head is, have they dumbed it down to ruining degrees, or have they dumbed it down to the Mass Effect level - and perhaps improved other aspects to hit the same high-points?
 
I'm all for diversity, but at the same time, we could worse than having two Mass Effect style/quality properties rollin up on us. :)

The UI looks simplistic, maybe too simplistic... Maybe even spartan. Of course they have some time to polish it up, i hope. Not cluttered, but... richer.

Damn, DAII quicklook? That came out of nowhere.

The way he answered "how do you feel about the game?" makes me nervous.  High voice "really good!" with neck scratch and eyes looking away.

360 version? Damn I was hoping for PC

Posted by rjayb89

Ha, "it's not an RPG without some looting."  Right you are, Brad.  Right you are.

"It's not an RPG without some loot"
 WHAT?!?!?!?!?! Brad you just lost the little respect I had for you.

Posted by SpartanAmbrose

This looks great on the 360. Can't wait to see what it looks like with Direct X 11 and the settings all the way up on my PC :)

Posted by Woodwater

Awesome! Been looking forward to this. Thanks guys!

You two should get along.

looks like they're coming down the home stretch

Posted by Aether

Yea pretty glad it will play different on PC. I really liked the combat on nightmare with difficulty mods. Actually made it challenging. The stylized look isn't my taste but there is always texture mods. Wont change the looks but will help with the environment.
 
But man that UI looks....rough. Hopefully the PC one will be a tad fleshed out. I saw some screens of it not to long ago and it looked really weird with just a floating skill bar with some green lights around it. Hopefully mods will fix that too...

Posted by Metal_Mills

Just awful. Ripped everything I liked about DA:O and turned it to shit.
 
Dragon age sold more than ME2...SO LETS MAKE DRAGON AGE 2 LIKE MASS EFFECT 2.
 
ugh.

Posted by KoolAid

Impressions...   
 
High point: learning the game was set to casual.  
 
Low point: rain of arrows?  Really?  That crossbow can fire 40 arrows at once?  *groan*

Posted by Pessh

Ugh still looks like a PS2 game

Posted by AuthenticM

I want to see gameplay of the PC version.

Online

I'm sure it'll be good but it doesn't look quite right when then characters are swinging huge two handed swords and hammers so quickly.

It's only the console version that has any significant changes (the PC version allows you to switch battles to be played more action based but by default, it's exactly the same as the first games).  The dialogue wheel system is the biggest point that could make things a bit more limiting, but the choices in the first game were largely superficial anyway. 
 
From what I can tell, it does seem like they've streamlined things, rather than an Oblivion style dumbing down.. But I haven't played it.
Posted by pubbles

Well, I've already pre-ordered so...  
 
fuck it, it'll still be fun 

Posted by spazmaster666

Though the gameplay does seem a little more actiony, I'm glad they still kept a lot of what made the original great. Also, this is the console version. Obviously the PC version will be different. In that sense, this still feels pretty similar to how DA:O played on consoles.

Posted by Elusionar

I cant se my self playing anyting other than PC for this game.
Edited by ProfessorEss
@WinterSnowblind: That's the version I care about... for now anyways.
 
ps: "Sarcastic option" has me in my highest level of forgiveness mode.

enchantments? 
 
enchantments!

Edited by Afroman269

I want to see the PC version, so far I'm turned off on this game. Also I really don't like the new art style.

Posted by buhssuht

i didnt get the first one because i knew that the game isnt really fitted to be played on console. but now that i see this one i think i can play it on my PS3

What? LOOT DOESN'T MAKE A GAME RPG!!! New generation of gamers... you suck!!!
Posted by Nentisys

Showing a PC focused game on console. Fuck you.

Posted by RoyCampbell

With this game, I'm just not 'feeling' it. It's as if making it through the 11 minute duration of this video was some sort of accomplishment. The level up system and customization along with the staple dialogue tree was neat at least.

Those melee animations look really silly but it pleases me somehow.
