On the Possibility of a Dragon Age Demo

Eurogamer draws attention to a revelation from their interview with BioWare's Dan Tudge that indicates BioWare's intent to support the release of Dragon Age: Origins with "downloadable content, both pre-release and post release; free content, paid-for content; online achievements." When pressed about whether pre-release downloadable content is code for demo, Dan plays it coy: "I can't say. You can expect something very creative from BioWare; the details I can't really go into."

Jade Empire was a little disappointing
I couldn't bring myself to play more than maybe 1/4 of the way through the game. It was just utter crap. Maybe the story was good or something, but the gameplay sucked so bad that I didn't really care about the story. The interface felt very "consoley" too, which definitely didn't help.

Mass Effect was a bit sparse on the meaningful content and I got sick of the same underground facility over and over, but I thought the gameplay was phenomenal.
Seriously? Do you know what "phenomenal" means? Mass Effect didn't really do anything even original, let alone phenomenal. Gameplay was certainly better than Jade Empire. At least I finished Mass Effect. But it was also very repetitive and formulaic. The story is what saved the game and made the repetition tolerable.

I really hope they do better with Dragon Age. I used to LOVE BioWare games. I'd really like to see them put out another game that I'll want to play through a few times at least. We just don't seem to get those kinds of games anymore.
