I think this is a good deal, though personally I'm going to wait just in case this gets an Ultimate Edition.

I've read it looks the best on the PC. Haven't bought the game but if I do it will be for the PC. Good price though.

Not a surprising price as it has been this price at Family Video for a month. I agree, not a penny over $14.99.
Gaming is a great stress reliever. It better be for all the darn frustration it creates.

There are some games worth playing on PC for the graphics...Witcher 2, Elder Scrolls for example...but DA2 isn't one of them. It really isn't much of an improvement on PC.

I'd make your decision based on which control scheme you prefer.

You guys missed on some pretty good games (bulletstorm, black ops, reach, etc) being sold for one penny by Amazon Warehouse deals. Some people already got theirs shipped.

Yesterday, Amazon Warehouse deals had some glitches where many games were $0.01 with Free Shipping with Amazon Prime, like Dragon Age II, Black Ops, LA Noire, etc.. People hoarded and bought a whole bunch, but many orders have been cancelled. The rest will probably be cancelled within a few days.

Damn is it that bad?? I still have my signature edition unopened. I played the demo and I actually enjoyed its simplicity..

ME2 is much less complicated than ME1 in my opinion but yet its still a good game.
Is DA2 like that? What's "really" wrong with it?

When would the Ultimate Edition come out? March 2012?

The dlc is probably trash like the first game's dlc, but I still want it, just in case. Then I'd have to wait until the ultimate edition drops to maybe $20-$25, which will be a while after the ultimate edition comes out, and maybe it's not worth it. Maybe it'll be $10 on Black Friday.

There's no filler $10 for DA2, right? Either way, I'm just going to wait for the SuperUltimateAllDLCEver edition.


Edit: Wasn't AWD, my bad. Still probably better off buying it used.

Lul then I guess you will be waiting for a while since it's been over 6 months and we've barely seen any DLC whereas DA:O had that whole cluster.

Well, I've waited longer for Complete Editions before (I'm looking at you RDR!). Also, I just heard that this game doesn't live up to its predecessor.

Are you asking if there's an online pass type thing? There is. It's not good, but at the same time... it's kinda the best thing about DA2. It's just some little bonus store with random, not particularly useful stuff you can buy. But it's got a way to respec characters. And change your appearance. And a bunch of weird little flavor stories that are more interesting than anything else in the game.

Also all the DLC for this game has been awful, there's no reason to pay for it in a collector's edition or w/e.

That's what I meant, thank you. Filler $10 = Some one-time redeemable bonus offered with new copies, usually sold separately for $10. I'm probably the only one who uses that terminology though.

Is that online pass offered separately? And the heads-up about the DLC is nice, but I'll give the game a year of being out and then assume all the DLC is out. I'm in no hurry.

Considering Dragon age 3 is in development, I think it's safe to assume that there will be no more DLC for DA: 2.

once Skyrim comes out, everyting DA should drop across the board.

That's not necessarily true since DA:O had DLC come out while DA2 was in development

I agree. RPG's nowadays always have those GOTY edition and complete edition. I'll wait for those. I know this is off topic, but that's what I'm going to do when Borderlands 2 come out. Just my opinion.

Mass Effect 2 hasn't gotten a GOTY edition yet (and may not at this point).

I too keep waiting for a GOTY edition for ME2. It really needs one since the DLC is basically story cannon and important for ME3

Honestly crap like that pisses me off. I dont mind side story extra DLC stuff, but if your going to make DLC thats critical to the plot of the game, and will be important in the upcoming sequal, then thats just BS. Thats the kinda stuff that should be in the actual retail game. Bioware has gone way downhill since they got bought by EA

As for this game.. dunno. I never beat 1 because they never patched the damn game. It had some crippling bugs that never got patched for the console version (like the dex bug) so I just gave up partway through. Never gave the 2nd game a chance because of that. Does this game actually work right? Or is it a mess like the first game was?

Even if its a decent game, im not sure if i want it now or want a DLC packed game since i've waited so long

totally understandable, though some games I prefer to play on or around release mainly because if a bunch of my friends are going to get Skyrim day 1, I rather not hear them gushing about how great the game is until the GOTY version finally comes out...in which they will probably be playing somethine else. If I keep waiting to get GOTY versions of everything, I'll probably save a couple bucks but forfeit the opportunity to play with my actual friends online.

I don't think I'll get DA2, I haven't finished all the DLC on DA:O yet.

Isn't the PS3 version a glorified/prettier GotY edition? I kind of always figured that was why this never happened. ME1 didn't really get one either (unless you're counting the PH version coming with one bit of DLC).

I do wholeheartedly agree with story-necessary DLC being cut out being a pain in the ass, but I guess it's hard to make the DLC have a good story/relevant otherwise.

DA3 already? They either had high sale estimates/hopes for this game, or there wasn't much put into this game to begin with.

I also have not finished DA: O, so much content.
