    Well, since Steam is allowing a Pre-load, I figured, it might be nice to have a thread to talk about this game. So if you haven't yet, go get your pre-load on!

    i was interested in DAII but with the short campaign and mass amount of DLC to come ill wait till steam has a deal on it 2 years from now for $25 for all of it. really not interesting in $60 game + $40 DLC + $30 expansion again. Still ill be chomping at the bit to have the game till then..

    Agreed.

    I had the Signature Edition on pre-order since last October.

    I canceled my order yesterday.

    Yeah, hopefully the DLC will be cheaper this time around. I liked the first one, I did enjoy it more on console though, despite it being much easier, I just liked that it played more hack n slash. The demo for this really impressed me, so I bought it. Actually pretty excited to play it.

    yea ive no doubt it will be a great game once the DLC is released and the expansion comes out but ill just wait till then, Dragon Age Origins if you bought it at release and bought all DLC and the expansion = $141 usd i cant see doing that again, so i hope the price drops quick, really want this game just not the abusrd price for the full experience. Altho i really want to see DX11 and what the game has to offer when maxed out,

    So that means Kurgan you better post some kick ass screen shots

    well it is a console port this time around, with bolted on extras, lol those extras took a bit of time to make work

    Dragon Age: Origins = PC was lead platform

    Dragon Age II = Consoles are the lead platform

    It is such a shame that America is the home of media entertainment and that the Bioware RPG engine and all the games built on it (to please American tastes) are considered the epitomy of RPG gaming.

    I think that every single Bioware RPG that ever existed sucks balls.

    Dragon Age was borrrring as hell.

    Dragon Age 2 will be everybit as dull and borrring.

    lol well some ppl hate bioware others love them i could care less, I prefer the old days of RPGs,

    Baldurs Gate, Baldurs Gate II Shadows of Amn, some ppl fine JRPGS boring looking at Final Fantasy we went from an explorable map to a really long corridor you run down fighting enemies on so in general its my feeling most RPGS suck dick these days, I enjoyed dragon age to an extent, I also enjoyed NWN2 mask of the betrayer the other main game and expansion sucked, In general we get what we get because the mass # of sheeple like stupidly easy garbage and eat it like its heroine meth cocaine candy.

    In general i feel most games today suck ass, not just bioware or any company in particular. most games are just shit easy and have OMG ACHIEVEMENT popup every 10 seconds, for the 4yr old with tourettes syndrome that cant think more then 2 seconds without losing focus. and this isnt the console fault or developers fault its this generation of gamers fault. They live in an age of instant gratification theres no working up to being a badass, your expected to be as such in the first 10mins and should something be strong then you its a bad game design, etc. overall ill probably enjoy DA II when i can get the complete edition for $20 or so, and enjoy it then, same with any game these days, I get when its cheap or i just borrow games from sheeple friends that buy the newest and greatest steaming pile at $60 beat it day one then are bored of it, lol, now back to using my PS2 emulator to run some older classics

    Yeah I bought it when it came out, I only bought the one expansion, it was a bit expensive since it was all on PC. I doubt this time around I will be after DLC until it's on sale on Steam for 50% off.

    Steam sales, it's what makes PC gaming great.

    So the game is only 59 AUD on steam here in Australia and from our local retailers it would be around 90 AUD for the PC and 108 AUD for the console.

    (http://www.ebgames.com.au/sale-product-1033-home-Dragon-Age-2)

    Big difference here and goes to show how much suffering the Australian gaming community has to go through especially since we still don't have an R18+ rating for games. :(

    I am considering pre-loading now, I might wait for IGN's review since my preferences matches with their critics if it doesn't seem like the game I will play for long I might wait until steam's end of financial year sale, I know last year they had some crazy deals.

    I completely see your logic. I really do. Evil America.

    Well I would invite you over the PC side, but considering the recent years with all these bloody console ports I'm a bit hesitant myself :shadedshu

    OT: I've got DA2 pre-loaded, now hoping, wishing and praying to Jebus/Santa/Easter Bunny that it's half decent and worth my $60..

    Yeah, Marineborns in the UK right now and he's been watching the price, it was equiv of $49.99 the other day, then it dipped even farther, yet its $59.99 here. Odd to see it cheaper around the world than in the US.

    Do you ever get the feeling that developers' marketing departments are oblivious to the global economic situation?
