Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening Reviews

Postby Shir'le E. Illios » Wed Mar 24, 2010 3:56 pm

Yes, I’m running terribly behind in reporting news (blame my work :p ). Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening has been out for nearly a week now (depending on where you live) and I’ve still got a stack of pre-release articles and post-release reviews to link. So to get through them in record time I’ll mostly just post lists of links, broken up in related section. As such I can’t guarantee that things are spoiler-free. It’s not ideal, but otherwise these link will just continue to collect dust.

I’ll probably do something similar for a collection of Mass Effect 2 links I’ve got lying around soon as well.


Dragon Age: Origins

A number of articles and such have been released that relate to the original game (or at least not to Awakening); here is a list of them.

  • [link] to Return to Ostagar review for Xbox360 at GameRevolution.
    One more review that basically says “don’t bother with this DLC”.
  • [link] to “Dragon Age Producer: Expansion Strategy Driven By Fans” article at Gamasutra.
    Short interview with Fernando Melo about Dragon Age DLC and expansions.
  • [link] to “Bioware Surprised By Mainstream Response To Dragon Age” article at IncGamers.
    Short article about how Fernando Melo told IncGamers that BioWare was pleasantly surprised by how wide an audience the game reached.
  • [link] to The Escapist Awards 2009 Winners Announcement at The Escapist.
    Dragon Age: Origins won a number of awards, though the “Game of the Year” award went to Batham: Arkham Asylum (which was pretty good, but not nearly as engrossing as Dragon Age: Origins IMHO).
  • [link] to Dragon Age issue #1 available blog entry at BioWare.
    The first issue of the Dragon Age comic is available on iTunes now; a preview is at the link.
  • [link] to possible “infinite” expansions post at VG247.
    BioWare’s doctors note that Dragon Age: Origins could get a lot of expansions.
  • [link] to “17 More Dragon Age Games Coming” post at The Escapist.
    Responding to the same statements as the previous link; more about how much more could come.
  • [link] to Dragon Age: Origins for Mac review at VGBlogger.
    A review for the game on the Mac.

Awakening Information

Before Awakening was released BioWare revealed a bunch of details about the expansion through various websites), including enemies, party NPCs, and more. Here’s a list of that information.

  • [link] to Disciples Trailer at Eurogamer.
    Eurogamer has a video showing “The Disciples”, a type of enemies in Awakening. I’d embed the video, but I don’t think that Eurogamer offers a way to do that.
  • [link to Oghren in Awakening at BioWare.
    BioWare revealed at logn last who the returning party member is: Oghren. Ok, so that wasn’t really a surprise as we pretty much all already knew that, but there it is anyway.
  • [link] to Warrior updates on Wiki at BioWare.
    Though I’m sure that they updated more on the Wiki, this post I managed to catch lists a number of updates for warriors on the Wiki, including specializations and new skills.
  • [link] to completed Penny Arcade comic at BioWare.
    The last time I posted news on Dragon Age the Awakening comic was just up to page three, but since then they’ve also posted pages 4-6, completing the comic.
  • [link] to The Architect at Voodoo Extreme.
    Voodoo Extreme has information on the main baddie in Awakening: The Architect. It includes a video (which I haven’t found a way to embed).
  • [link] to Justice NPC at Grey Wardens.
    Grey Wardens has information, including a video, on the last new party member: Justice. Here’s the video:
    [youtube]0QW0NpusfdE[/youtube]
  • [link] to environments at Grey Wardens.
    Grey Wardens also has information on a list of areas you’ll visit in the expansion.
  • [link] to walkthrough at Grey Wardens.
    And finally Grey Wardens has a walkthrough for the first part of the expansion. Obviously filled with spoilers.

Awakening Videos

There have been a bunch of videos released for Awakening. It’s largely gameplay videos, but there’s an interview and a trailer as well. I’ll embed the videos below each link.

Awakening Reviews

Since the expansion has been reeased there have also been a bunch or reviews for it, and they’re all mostly positive. I think that the general consensus is that while it’s not the best expansion ever, it is more Dragon Age and that’s a good thing.

Dragon Age 2

And finally there have been some rumors floating about about Dragon Age 2. Not only that it’s already in development, but that it’s set to release early next year. Apparently the boxed version of Awakening comes with a mysterious leaflet showing a blood dragon and nothing more than the text “02.01.2011” which seems to be the first of February 2011 (American date). Speculation now is that this is the release date for the sequel, though considering how soon that is after the first game it might also refer to the next expansion. Here’s a couple of links reporting this news:

  • [link] to news at Kotaku.
  • [link] to news at The Escapist.
  • [link] to news at IGN.
  • [link] to news at 1UP.

And that’s it for now. I’m sorry for not doing my old style where I try to discuss each link to some degree, but I really don’t have time for that. I’m also hopeful that once I’m through my current backlog of news links I might move to a more “post it when I see it” system, but we’ll see.
