Right, so... the popularity with Dragon Age: Origins in this forum alone was quite astounding. So now, we're presented with Dragon Age 2!
If you haven't seen these yet, take a look if you got some spare time;

Still awaiting for Gameplay Footage, however... t'is a shame I couldn't afford the trip to ComiCon
In the meantime, the Official Site
has a few concept art images and wallpapers (as well as the official trailer available for download).
I like the main character Hawke. He (or she!) is rough and looks like a well-rounded personality, the sort of clichéd, troubled and 'on a mission' kind of guy. Romance options should be interesting, methinks
Also, I think the wider world in this game is going to be amazing. I can't wait to visit Par Vollen or the Anderfels.
I also think they're straying away from the whole Grey Warden arc as I don't think there will be a Blight to quell this time around, so it should be interesting to see what storyline this entices (spanning a decade, apparently).
Thoughts on the trailer are always awesome to hear, too.
I like how the Qunari is really portrayed how Sten describes them in Dragon Age: Origins: as fearless, remorseless and powerful fighters.
Also, is that Blood Magic towards the end? That's amazing... in Dragon Age: Origins is was hinted that most of the powerful Blood Magic was lost when the Tevinter Imperium was defeated... so, if Hawke can do THAT, are we to expect more depth to Blood Magic this time around? I hope so
I am SO excited. And my birthday is 3 days after the expected release date for the game, so hopefully, I'll be getting a fantastic present
