Dragon Space II

Edited by SteamPunkJin

You know...The Dragon Armor in ME2 made sense, they were both Bioware Games, they were trying to promote DA to fans of Mass Effect....but this? This is beyond stupid. Next thing you know we'll have to buy 5 or 6 OTHER EA games to complete gear sets in our RPGs. 
Fuck. That. Noise.

Bleh. 
 
I kinda feel sick now.

Here's hoping they don't screw it up and make the codes platform specific. (IE: Got the 360 version of Dead Space 2? Better hope you're getting the 360 version of DA2 or you're screwed!")

Posted by jakob187

I'm pretty sure I'm convinced enough to buy Dragon Age II now.

Posted by Darkraven

I guess if youre the sort of person who cares about such things then you could say EA is definatly playing their cards right.

They didn't. The Mass Effect 2 - Dragon Age armor worked cross-platform.

EA is just getting weird with their Dead Space cross-promotion now. I know it's one of their best and biggest selling IPs, but... at least they're whoring it in a way that Activision doesn't do with their games (then again, playing as Lars Umlaut in Tony Hawk would barely be interesting)

Posted by NowSayPillow

... I'm tempted to go pre-order both of these now ...

Who cares if it's fucking badass?!
Posted by General_D23

Planning on getting both anyway, sooo...
 
The armor doesn't look that out of place, anyway. Neither did the Dragon Blood Armor.

Posted by MEATBALL

Um. Okay then?

haters gonna hate  
that armor looks awesome  
 
but i'm not picking dead space 2 this year  :(

Is that how you reassure yourself that EA aren't as bad, or even worse than Activision? You sure live in a very deluded and fragile world...

Not planning picking up DS2, will not miss the armor. Also getting pretty exhausted at EA marketing meddling with every recent BioWare release to the point that I don't know which deal goes with which retailer or preorder. I don't even want to know, I just want to go into a store and buy a copy like a normal person. I'm afraid for what they want to try with Mass Effect 3, for reals.

Posted by Chuck_

Welp, I guess EA wins. 

Posted by hagridore

Would be weird... if Sir. Isaac didn't look completely bad ass.

Posted by DrHawking

Well that was better than expected. Thought it was Dragon Age stuff for Dead Space but still, Wut?

Posted by NTM

Cool. But it would make more sense having the collaboration between Dead Space and Mass Effect. Being Shepard and having Issac's armor would be awesome, or having N7 armor while being Issac (not as cool, but still awesome!).

Posted by Rattle618

Lame.

Posted by AuthenticM

I was sure this was going to be the Blood Dragon Armor in Dead Space 2. :)

Posted by MarkWahlberg

I don't... whatever.

i don't like it

Posted by shinluis

GREAT!!! I hope people in the industry keep doing these crossovers they are bloody brilliant.

Posted by MarkDarkness

O... kay? What the hell... and usually these extras are unbalanced like hell and ruin the game anyway... I end up unlocking them for the hell of it and never using any.

Posted by Eversor

Looks like a neat bit of customer loyalty reward. I'm perfectly fine with this, as there is absolutely nothing inherently wrong with it. "You like our games? Cool, here's an extra something" is a luxury, not necessity, remember? You can play both games perfectly fine alone.

Posted by BibleDoctor

I don't have any idea why people are complaining about this. They did the same thing with Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins. It is a fun little thing for someone who has bought both of the games, and is in no way required to play DA2.  
 
QQing is fucking ridiculous.

THIS RUINS DRAGON AGE 2 IT'S A PIECE OF SHIT NOW WHO WOULD BUY THAT GARBAGE

Posted by Cornman89

Yup. Synergy.

Posted by benjaebe

If it's cross platform then I'm a happy camper. The armor looks great, and no more out of place than the blood dragon armor.

Posted by captain_clayman

this is just 
 
so.  retarded.

Posted by heatDrive88

 Haha, sort of crazy, but sort of cool. I guess it's not too far out there with Mass Effect 2 and the first Dragon Age doing the similar synergy with the Blood Dragon Armor.
 
If people think this is somehow a bad thing, you're kinda talking crazy because it's not a big deal.

Spot on really. Never understand when people get so whiny over stuff like this.   
 
Or more than whiny. Assume TadThuggish is either kidding or out killing prostitutes right now. Either way is good.

If you aren't going to use the armor anyway, then why would you care if it unbalanced the game? What difference would it make, if it's an item you never plan on using to begin with? Instead of people whining about why Dragon Age 2 has armor that looks like Isaac's security suit, which they probably aren't going to use anyway, you should instead be focusing on the armor's design.

Fine, then go into a store and buy a copy like a normal person. Chances are if you pre ordered the game anyway from any place that sells games, you'd know what you were getting as a bonus. What exactly is stressing you out? If you don't want to know, than you really don't care, so does it really matter?

I've seen more than my fair share of shitty things coming from Dragon Age 2, but this one takes the cake.

Don't.fucking.use.it. 
 
If it bothers you so much. Don't equip it, don't bother with it, don't think about it. It's really fucking simple.

Ditto, man, ditto.  I think it is goofy but I will be playing both games and just ignore this little bit of madness.
