    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    I'm guessing a lot of people are doing that right now cos it won't even start downloading my copy.

    Edit: I guessed right, it just told me to try again later.

    'PC owners get the most versatile and rewarding experience in this regard'; 'occasional pathfinding quirks are more apparent in the console versions'; 'The PC interface is brilliant, letting you browse through your inventory and tweak your quickbars quickly and easily'; 'On the flip side, the Xbox 360 version looks positively disappointing'.

    Looks like the PC is the version to go for.

    I was always going to go for the pc version, plus if I'm in the mood I'll hook the pc up to my 1080p sony projector and turn on the surround sound.

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    An 8/10 from Eurogamer.

    In its desperation to infuse this setting with "maturity" - be it of the sober, political kind, or the game's painfully clumsy gore and sex - BioWare has forgotten the key ingredient of any fantasy: the fantastical. Without it, you're still left with a competent, often compelling, impressively detailed and immense RPG, but it's one that casts no spell.

    Thought the review read like a much lower score... But there you go. Eurogamer are a funny bunch. Glad to see they're running PC reviews again though...

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    On first glance I agree, but then reading it more closely it sounds like he thought it was a good game, just one that could have been that much better if they'd innovated or not been held back by the usual bioware engine limitations. Very good review IMHO as it's reminded me to set my expectations to those within Bioware games.

    Preloading this right now... decided to go digitial deluxe. Extra school of magic and a nice party headquarters with storage. I think its pretty big because its been going a few hours and I've only got 51% down (4mb connection).

    I suppose if you are into the old school type D&D games, but the storyline was too bland for my liking. Gameplay itself was not too bad.
