Didn't we all agree it'd only be Marilyn Manson music in this game?! Damn it!

Huh? Did people really think that Marilyn Manson music would actually be in the game?
 
Seriously?

I really want this game, but I don't know if I will have the money or time for it.
 
The music is incredible, though.

That girl's voice is amazing. I hope Marlyn Manson was just in the trailers and they won't actually put that kind of music in the game.

Good on EA for not throwing in the short riff from "New Shit" in the end.

Seeing this, I would have been pissed when they used the Marylin Manson music in the trailer if I had been the composer.

This is ironic, Jeff was just talking about how DA was overexposing itself on Mobcast and here we are.

On one hand I kind of liked an idea of a death metal fantasy environment over YET ANOTHER grand orchesteral soundtrack for an RPG but the music is still very good so I'm willing to put up with it even if Bioware threw away a chance to do something fresh rather than rehashing like they are so wont to do.


Hey are you a Jedi/Grey Warden/Spectre?  Good because in our game you will make moral choices polarized between Goody two-shoes and sadistic killer while saving the world from a long forgotten threat like the Dark Spawn/Starforge/Reapers.   Along the way you'll likely come across some old abandoned technology that communicates in a language only your main character can understand and you'll discover that there's a way to stop the EPIC threat.

Still excited for this game and mass effect 2 even if Bioware isn't very original because if there's one thing they do get right it's atmosphere, they know how to immerse you in the game world and engage you with a story.

Thrilled about this. The music is sounding fantastic, and the composer seems incredibly enthusiastic about it. I can't wait to hear and see it all in motion.

You know they had to do this to shut up everyone thinking hard rock was going to be the game's soundtrack.  Very enjoyable vocals in there.  I've never had a problem with Bioware games' soundtracks/scores though.  It's the combat and other gameplay they have to convince me on.

Exactly. Who wouldn't want to stab himself and spray delicious bloody death all over other people? I know I do.

I just hope there will be comprehensive looks at the game before release so I can still pre-order. I Don't want to pre-order yet though because I'm not sure which version is going to be the best. I mean the PC-version might be buggy as hell like so many PC games are these days. I hate for it to be like Oblivion where I ended up buying the 360-version as well just because it kept crashing on my PC.

I wouldn't worry too much about the polarizing choices. While some may be available, I believe the writers allowed for a lot of more 'grey' and reasonable choices. The game is supposed to be an honest sort of brutal and grimness to it - acting realistically to that by not being a paragon is not only feasible by is an appropriate response to it.
 
As the 'epic threat' of the Blight. I can't argue that won't be a backdrop, but it seems like a lot more things will be happening in the foreground. Also, DA is a franchise and will certainly lead to many future great stories.
"they know how to immerse you in the game world and engage you with a story. "
I guess if you agree on that, you can't lose. I'm just glad to see the general GB hate on DAO isn't spuring out just yet... >.>

Since the PC game has been in the order of being polished for a while, reviews will likely come out for the game quite early. In fact, a Polish gaming magazine is said to be releasing a full on review tomorrow (9/29). So, we'll see what other things may come in the following months.

Generic fantasy music? Love the cinematics though.  
 
They should get Marilyn Manson to do the music.
