Dragon Age II In February 2011?

VG247 shows the retail packaging for the upcoming Awakening expansion for Dragon Age: Origins, BioWare's RPG. This includes a drop card with a stylized dragon and a date of 02.01.2011, which they think may be an advance tease of a February 1, 2011 release date for Dragon Age II. We shall see.

im also surprised how few people see the connection between this game and NWN 1 - because the fundamental concept of the SP game is essentially the same (in terms of linear/hub based design), altho of course its conceptually much more expanded and fleshed out since its not also a "rpg construction kit" and just a sp game

in that sense, DA didnt really impress me that much. sure it had ALOT of content, but that content was on average a fairly bland and rote "by the numbers" type experience IMHO

when people were making those "gold box" games, and ultima and so forth - the "target market" wasnt every kid in the entire world. it was mostly catering to a niche filled by computer geeks and d&d nerds. sure the technology only went so far, but it was put to use towards a different end than a modern game corporation

of course any 'magnum opus' type works should ideally transcend all boundaries and captivate everyone regardless of venue or market - i dont think DA lived up to that, but in general most people liked it, and quite a few others worship at its altar and sacrifice their intelligence to it

so - whatever floats your boat... but some of us are still waiting for that second coming, because DA certainly wasnt it
 
Go forth, and kill!
