Dragon Age II Released 168

Today marks the US launch of Dragon Age II, the sequel to BioWare's popular 2009 RPG Dragon Age: Origins. Like its predecessor and other BioWare RPGs, Dragon Age II is non-linear and has extensive dialog, though this time the story focuses on a particular character, Hawke, whose race and identity you can't change. A demo of the game is available, and early opinions noted both the impressive art direction and less punishing difficulty settings. BioWare has also released an optional ~1GB texture pack for the PC version that bumps up the level of detail for owners of high end computers. They explained some of the technological changes they made in a couple of blog posts. It's available for Windows, OS X, the PS3, and the Xbox 360.

    I agree. Mass Effect I was a LOT BETTER and delivered far more wide range of modifications and weapons... MEII came out and dumbed it down drastically. The worlds were far more limited, interaction is more limited... it's more of a "go here do this good boy!" I am afraid they ruined Dragon Age with numbing down of the whole system like they did for Mass Effect.
