I saw
Alistair
in the trailer. I didn't choose this option but what if you had him
executed?
I just chose to
exile
him. Does the trailer go on the premises that
he becomes king
or just that
he joins you again?
Possibly, or it might adapt to the choices you made and the trailer just went with the "default" profile.

I have to admit, I'm very disappointed that this DLC was basically canceled and am also not a fan of the upcoming expansion's price. That said, I enjoyed DA:O enough that Bioware pretty much has me by the balls. I'll be getting any new offerings as soon as they are released and at whatever price they specify.

This journey isn't ov--AARGH!
Looks like I'll be getting a little extra money as a graduation this year.

Could you chaps point me in the direction of the DIY PC building sites? Want a screamer for around $900 (not including monitor... that can come later).

It came out on the Xbox Live yesterday. Haven't heard anything about the PC version.

They seem to be having a few issues with the new release: http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Dragon-Age-Return-From-Ostagar-DLC-Pulled-From-Xbox-Live-22243.html

Glad to see they didn't decide to stuff it into the expansion though!

Haha; you beat me to posting that Shane. I have to say those mods look simply fantastic. Who knew that giving Morrigan a good slapping could be so fulfilling. :ganishka:

Awakening can now be preordered on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/901275/

It's $40. :sad:
And 30€. Might seem normal to you guys, but it's always a pleasant surprise when price conversions aren't 4000 ¥ = $40 = 40€.

No, it just means the United States' influence and dollar is getting sucked into the vortex. :judo:
There's a misunderstanding here. The Euro's domination is not recent, nor is it a problem. However editors of video games have the bad tendency of always charging as much as they can for their products. That means prices like 4000 ¥ used to translate to $40 even when the exchange rate put it at $32. Same for the US dollar to Euro conversion. What you're deploring is that 4000 ¥ now equals $44.
 
Game Informer gave Awakenings a 7.75/10.

"It feels like a direct-to-video sequel, shuffling the core components of the Dragon Age world to create a new story in a familar skin."

Sounds great to me - a new story is what I /want/. And I'm not sure what they mean by familiar skin - do they want all the graphics changed or something? I quite like them as they are.

Yeah the biggest draw for me is the new story and new enemies. I don't see what they are really complaining about.

Wow, Darkspawn Chronicles sounds surprisingly excellent. Looks like your prayers were heard Wally!

For $4.99/€4.99/£3.99 you can play as one of the Darkspawn Horde in BioWare's forthcoming Dragon Age: Origins addon:

For the first time ever, fight as the darkspawn in BioWare’s Dragon Age: Origins. In the new downloadable content pack, Dragon Age: Origins Darkspawn Chronicles, players have the chance to experience life on the dark side, playing as the corrupted army of the Blight, are enslaved to the will of the Archdemon. In Europe, Darkspawn Chronicles will be available for the Xbox 360 videogame system for 400 Microsoft points and PC for 400 BioWare points on May 18th and on PlayStation Network for £3.99/€4.99 with its launch date to be announced later.

The Darkspawn Chronicles offers players a look at an alternate history in the Dragon Age universe. Darkspawn Chronicles begins as your character dies during the Joining ceremony, and the Grey Wardens now march under Alistair's command. As a hurlock vanguard, you alone hold the power to make thralls of their fellow darkspawn and drive them into the heat of battle as Denerim burns! This adventure gives you command of genlocks, hurlocks, shrieks, and even the mighty ogres.

Key Features Include:

# Imagine a world without heroes, where the greatest among you never became a Grey Warden.
# Play through the Fall of Denerim from the perspective of the darkspawn.
# Complete the module and unlock an epic darkspawn item for use in Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening.
# Use the “Enthrall” ability – recruit any darkspawn you encounter into your party.

It sounds awesome, I just wonder how long the game is? Will you just play key scenes or the entire campaign as a Darkspawn?
 
Guys I'm curious, have any of you bought Awakenings? If you have, is it a good campaign? I didn't buy it because I thought the price was too high for an expansion, and it still is, but I want to be prepared in case it goes into a random sale again on Steam, so I need opinions! I want to take my elf on new fantastic adventures.

Also, another paid DLC has been announced and I didn't even notice:

Leliana's Song

Assume the role of Leliana, a young bard involved in a criminal ring that deals in political secrets. Accompanying her mentor Marjolaine on a high-risk mission, Leliana soon finds herself entangled in a game of intrigue that she cannot escape with just her beauty, charm, or stealth. The only way out of this game is to kill or be killed.

Features:

* Explore Leliana's dangerous past and why she joined the Chantry
* Fully voiced cinematic experience brings the characters to life
* Unlock a unique reward that transfers into your Awakening and Origins campaign
It's 7 bucks.

Not me. I had a good time playing through Dragon Age: Origins, but I don't feel compelled to go back to the game.
