    I got this from Tumblr. I enjoyed reading it, especially the bit about Anders which for me is like, game changing, and everything about Fenris. Hope you enjoy it too! Read the post here if you like instead: skyelinepigeon's Tumblr


    So, short backstory! David Gaider is on vacation in New Orleans, where I live. I tweeted at him as a joke about giving him free alcohol in exchange for Dragon Age secrets… much to my surprise he tweeted back and offered to meet up, if I wanted. Much fangirling ensued. We had lunch today!

    I am typing everything up the best I remember. There were some really interesting things we talked about, so I hope you find this information fun and exciting. :D Tis long, sorry! The Fenris bit is my favorite, I think.

    Got my copy of The Stolen Throne signed, oh yeah!

    • Ok, let’s jump in. I tried to be really respectful and not ask questions I know he couldn’t answer. I didn’t ask about Alistair’s parentage, I didn’t ask any end game questions, etc. Also, let me start b…

    Following the live chat with Dragon Age Creative Director Mike Laidlaw, this is is a roundup of the information that was revealed:

    • Mark of the Assassin fits in with the main game and can be started at any time in Kirkwall. Progress in the game will be reflected in the DLC
    • Mark of the Assassin is slightly longer than Legacy as there are lots of side quests and fiendish puzzles
    • Tallis will be a companion only for the duration of Mark of the Assassin. This is for "a number of reasons."
    • There's some "extra stuff" for certain characters, particularly those who have any connections with Orlais (such as Aveline). The DLC will also explore the inner workings of the Qunari. Laidlaw tells fans to "expect revelations" and there will be moments at the end which will make players surprised.

    At this point, a clip was shown of Tallis speaking to Hawke. Hawke chose to flirt with her, after which she introduced herself and revealed that she was searching for Hawke, as they had an invitation to Château Haine (n…

    We are very pleased to announce the next Dragon Age II story based DLC, Mark of the Assassin!

    Hawke meets a mysterious female Elven assassin named Tallis, voiced by the talented Felicia Day, and joins her to steal an ancient relic from an Orlesian Baron in his well-guarded estate. A cross between Varric and Isabela, Tallis is a rogue who introduces a new fighting style to add more variety in combat. Get up close and personal with her deadly skills or stand back and pick off enemies with her ranged combat abilities.

    Mark of the Assassin features new items, new enemies and monsters and new environments as well as giving players the opportunity to experience a new, tactical way to play with the return of Stealth gameplay. Plus, along with the new environments and monsters, you will learn more about the Orlesians and Qunari.

    Mark of the Assassin will be available for download on the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on October 11 for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft points.

    All info comes from DA producer Fernando Melo and marketing director David Silverman. I went through and watched the small interview Silverman had with Melo and the fan Q&A with Melo and Silverman.

    Important Points to pull from interview:

    • Fans liked Legacy. Dev was happy. Will continue to use Legacy formula.
    • Next DLC is Item Pack to be released on Tuesday, Aug 23.
    • Will be able to release more info about upcoming DA2 related content in the coming weeks after gamescom.
    • Players liked Corypheus fight. But party member's AI is retarded on that fight, so they want to improve it for future content.
    • They're going to take their time with future DLC because they did with Legacy and that turned out well.
    • They will try to get out some non-story content in between story content.
    • They don't have any plans for companion specific DLC at this time, more focused on continuing Hawke's story based on what players seemed to want from DA:O DLC.
    • There was a DA panel that I missed. If it was taped, then I'll try to f…

    Dragon Age producer Fernando Melo has announced at gamescom that there would be a new item pack for Dragon Age 2 on Tuesday, August 26th (Melo says this date, but I believe it is actually on Tuesday, August 23). He also seemed to imply they were working on more story DLC content and more information would be announced in the coming weeks after the Item Pack was out.

    “If I’m going to piss you guys off, it’s going to be because I still firmly believe that RPGs do need to be more accessible to new players; Not diminished, but made less imposing and less terrifying to new players. In part because I want more people to play Dragon Age, and in part because there have been a lot of improvements in gameplay and UI design in the past 15 years, and we can learn from them.” - Mike Laidlaw

    The live preview of the new DLC for Dragon Age II at the EA Summer Showcase provided some new details:

    • Hawke will travel to an ancient prison constructed by the Grey Wardens
    • They will face a millennia-old monster so powerful that the Wardens kept it sealed away in secrecy.
    • Genlock alphas make their DAII debut in the DLC, along with their more common relatives. The alphas seem to have grown in size considerably since Dragon Age: Origins.
    • Hawke will gain a class-specific weapon which doubles up as a key. This weapon will be available for use after completion of Legacy.
    • The DLC will delve deeper into the history of the Hawke family, focusing particularly on the late Malcolm Hawke, father to the Champion of Kirkwall and the Hawke twins themselves.

    The new DLC for Dragon Age II is suppose to be officially announced during Comic-Con but the folks over at Xbox360achievements has apparently uncovered the achievements for it that give a hint at the contents of the upcoming add-on.

    Here are the achievements:

    Conductor: Defeat an ancient evil in the Vimmark Mountains (30 points)
    Deep Roads Safari: Kill a genlock, genlock alpha, hurlock alpha, bronto, and deepstalker in the Vimmark Mountains (15 points)
    Family Legacy: Apply three effects to Hawke's Key (30 points)
    Family Outing: Complete the main quest in the Vimmark Mountains with Bethany or Carver in the party (15 points)
    Tower Sweeper: Complete every side quest in the Vimmark Mountains prison tower (30 points)

    While there's a possibility that the achievements might change before the DLC releases, it's nice to see that genlocks and deepstalkers are returning. Being able to see more of the Vimmark Mountains and possibly the Deep Roads will also be a change from Kirkwall. Keep your eyes peele…

    The latest patch was already released on X360 yesterday, and for PS3 European users a few days ago. It has now been launched for PC users. PS3 users from North America will have to wait after the weekend.


    • In many fights, enemies now move less quickly at the start of combat. This slower initial pace makes tactical positioning more useful and important.
    • If the force of an enemy attack interrupts a party member's current action, the party member now resumes the action once he or she has recovered. This means, for example, that party members who have been instructed to consume a health potion will now do so as soon as they are able, and do not need to be told to consume a health potion again if they are interrupted.
    • Enemies are now much less likely to explode into body parts upon death.
    • Attacks that hit a stealthed assassin are now more likely to disrupt stealth.
    • Abilities that apply a silence effect now also cancel the target's current action in addition to preventing the target from using f…

    Update:3/26/2011

    I know some of you spend some quality time in Bioware forums and if that is the case you probably know about this. But for those who don't know about the following bugs I hope this information would be helpful to you.



    Following are some of the known bugs in Dragon Age 2

    Bonus content is not showing up under the 'Unlockables' menu

    Currently there is an issue where the 'unlockables' menu is not properly reflecting what is actually unlocked on your account right away (it will eventually). This does not, however, reflect what you will actually find in the Special Deliveries chest in Gamlen's house.

    If your account is entitled to any particular item you should do the following: 1. Verify that your EA Online account directly matches your Social.Bioware.com account login 2. Verify that you are in fact logged in to the EA Online Account 3. Go to Gamlen's House in lowtown and check inside the Special Deliveries chest for your items

    If you are a PC gamer I think you should read this.

    "Dragon Age: Origins was one of my favorite games of 2009 – as long as we’re talking about the PC version. On consoles, the game was a diminished port of the original, offering only a shadow of the tactical combat that made the PC release so satisfying. With Dragon Age II, BioWare has turned the tables. The sequel’s action-oriented battle system is clearly tailored to accommodate Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers, and the hardcore PC faithful (at whom the original title was explicitly targeted) get snubbed with an inferior adaptation."

    This will add the option to enable higher detail replacements for most textures in game. A big difference will be noticed on level art especially.

    Requirements: To get the most out of the high resolution texture pack, we recommend running the game with the DirectX 11 renderer (requires a DirectX 10 GPU and Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7). We also recommend a video card with at least 1 GB of video memory.

    Most of the benefits from the Hi-resolution textures will only be seen if you are able to run the game in DirectX 11.

    To manually download your new content on the PC: Download the installer from the link below and run it. Run Dragon Age II. Open the Options menu. Select Video options. Check the "Hi-resolution textures" checkbox. Note: In order to enable the "Very High" setting you will need a video card that supports DX11 and the latest drivers.

    IGN Score: 8.5

    "Every modification to the gameplay and structure of Dragon Age II is a clear improvement over the previous game. The combat is more responsive and bloody, you don’t need to fight the inventory system anymore, and conversations are more engaging thanks to the adapted Mass Effect wheel. There are downsides though; the semi-linear story and repetitive environments have a negative effect on what is otherwise a great role-playing game. Despite these complaints, Dragon Age II is a game I’m eager to replay."

    Gamespot Rating: 8/10

    The Good

    • Player choice manifests itself in interesting ways
    • Spectacular writing and voice acting bring each character to life
    • Fascinating world characterized by moral ambiguity
    • Combat is fun, fast-paced, and colorful
    • Great symphonic soundtrack.

    The Bad

    • Main story lacks focus and drive
    • Multiple elements have been inexplicably simplified over the original
    • Combat is much less tactical.

    Gamers who buy Dragon Age II will find a nice card in their box telling them "The ARRIVAL has begun", refering to the leaked Mass Effect 2 DLC that will bridge Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 together.

    This can only mean that 'Arrival' will have the Reapers coming to Earth and giving us a good whomping. Oh, that's "Reapers" to the Turian councilor. Maybe this will convince him they're real.

    The first Dragon Age could be difficult if you weren't familiar with party-based RPG tactics and Mike Laidlaw says he fixed that in the sequel.

    I'm not saying that the difficulty turned me off at all in Origins - I quite liked how I needed to think through how my mage Grey Warden would paralyze opponents so that my rogue and warrior could finish them off. Others complained, however, that the normal difficulty setting was too tough and I know more than a few players who enjoyed the game much more with the slider on 'casual.' Many people who've played the demo or previewed the first few hours of Dragon Age II have noticed that the combat doesn't seem as punishing as its predecessor. Mike Laidlaw, lead designer of the game at BioWare, explained that he thought that the default Origins was too hard, and he adjusted the difficulty to compensate.

    "I did feel Origins 'normal' [difficulty] was pushing too hard on the high side and no one wants to set their game to 'casual' unless they're comfor…

    Platform: Macintosh, Windows PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

    Rating: Mature

    Content descriptors: Blood and Gore, Language, Sexual Content, Violence

    Rating summary:

    This is an action-adventure role-playing game in which players assume the role of a warrior who completes quests in a mythical land. Players use swords, bows and arrows, and magical spells (e.g., fireballs, energy beams) to defeat human-like enemies and fantasy creatures (e.g., giant spiders, demons, ogres, golems). Attacks are often accompanied by slashing sounds, large explosions, and cries of pain. Blood splatter effects occur when enemies are hit, and damage sometimes results in dismemberment or decapitation—blood stains and body parts occasionally appear in the environment. In one cutscene, a man's severed head is held up then tossed to the ground. During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in sexual dialogue (e.g., "Why is it always about sex with…
