My First Blog, and Dragon Age 2: 2/24/11


Here's something that bugs me though; We were promised a much more vast array of emotional options in the dialouge choices, such as 'sarcastic' or 'flirty,' but, at least in the areas covered in the demo, all you really have is the stereotypical 'paragon' good guy options, the 'renegade' bad guy options, and the default 'sarcastic' options, which isn't as vast as I was hoping and also kind of adds to my fear that this game will be what Mass Effect 2 was to Mass Effect 1. Meaning, trying too hard to be edgy, cool, and blowing up the title into a big name franchise. We all remember what Bioware once said regarding ME2, that they were trying to make it like a PG-13 movie, with action and adventure and complete lack of homosexuality, and what not. DA2 nails the latter at the least, with any gender of Hawke being able to flirt up with Isabela in the demo, but I'm no less worried that Dragon Age will turn from a very innovate, retro and fun, if a bit generic, adventure into Medieval fantasy, and into a SUPER DARK and EDGY, SEXY ACTION romp.

In conclusion, being bad at introductions makes you bad at conclusions as well. I really enjoyed the DA2 demo, I loved playing it through multiple times and picking it apart. But at the same time I wasn't so happy we couldn't chum around and pre-create our characters before the actual game comes out, like a 'practice' round at building a pretty face, and I was a bit disapointed with some of the things that were promised. As rebels always say, don't believe the hype.... But hey, Dragon Age 2 has damn good hype.

That's all for now internet. I'm Drew, and I have a blog.

About Drew Zambroskione of us since 11:48 PM on 02.24.2011

This is the same info you can find on my facebook profile. Yeah I know, copying and pasting is lazy, but hey, why re-type a perfect summary?

As a simple teenager, I'm into geeky stuff and cool things. Yes, that's pretty general. I attend Roosevelt High School, and am intrested in pursuing a career in film direction, but of course that's barely going to get off the ground at my current grade of Freshman.
And, I'm completley unphotogenic and my picture taking skills also reflect that, so for now, Scott Pilgrim will be representing me. My heart goes out to you, Bryan Lee O'Malley.

My intrests include, of course, film, and obviously being on Dtoid, video games. And now I'm getting into blogging about these things and whatever else is on my mind, a concept long encouraged by my family. Of course, expect me to totally geek out and what not.
