I finally have Dragon Age 2! I planned on getting it on launch day, but I was broke so I postponed the purchase. Aaaaaand I’ve been broke ever since. Luckily, my bf bought it for me last week. I’ve been playing it every second I have an ounce of free time. Which according to my xbox log is 19 hours! >.< I’m in Act 2 and loving the game. It’s a bit different from the first in regards to romance, combat style, specializing in talents, but not so different that it’s an entirely different game. I have heard lots of mixed reviews on this game. A common complaint is that this game has no point. What is Hawke (lead protagonist) trying to accomplish? Answer-I don’t know! I’m not even sure if I’m trying to accomplish anything. In my understanding, at this point of the game (act 2), someone’s telling the story of my adventures and how I became “The Champion” and I’m just playing through said adventures. Maybe I’m wrong. All I know is I’m enjoying these adventures and all of my companions. I’ll let you know what I think of the entire game when I complete it.
While I’m on the topic of video games…
Games I’m looking forward to-
Portal 2 (comes out April 18th)
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet-I played this at PaxEast and even talked to the game developers for awhile. I can’t wait to play it when it’s released this summer.
