So I finally snagged this game during Amazon's Black Friday sale, and I'm really looking forward to investing an obscene amount of time in it. I don't suppose anyone has any extra GameStop-preorder DLC codes they'd be willing to throw at me, do they? I'd be ever so grateful!

Wonder if the new dlc will get a console release as well?

Appears like an expansion is coming 3/16 for 39.99 wonder if its seriously worth another 40 bucks. http://dragonage.bio...ourceid=eag1127

I'm guessing the expanison will be standalone and won't require you to have the original game like PC expanisons do. I wonder how long it will be. Has to be pretty long for it to be worth 40 dollars.

Don't know as I found this at the link-
Available for pre-order now. Requires Dragon Age: Origins to play. Digital and boxed versions available. Cannot be purchased with BioWare points.
-so it looks like original game is needed or at least gamesave or something but knowing EA probably the game lol. Also found another article that said its about 15 hours in length seems like it should be dlc only versus an actual retail expansion when you consider its going to be available as simply dlc also.

well, I'm stuck in The Fade...not that I think I couldn't finish it, but at the last battle there, no matter what I do, I cannot attack, cast spells or open any of the radial menus. The crappy frame rate and choppy audio alone are making me wish I had not purchased this.

The story may be good, but the game itself is only slightly better than a polished turd on the PS3.

After almost getting a 360 to play Mass Effect 1 and 2... I decided to play this instead (with the hope that Mass Effect hits PS3 one day). I ordered it. Haven't gotten it yet. I hope it satisfies the itch that Fallout 3 and Demon's Souls did not (though those are 2 of my favorite games, they still leave room for a different RPG experience).

Anyone have any thoughts that have yet to be shared?

I wish I could play games on PC. But I never have really been able to (aside from the occasional Diablo or Torchlight type game)... Just sitting in a computer chair in front of a monitor never has done it for me. In this instance (and some others), I know it is my loss.

Most video card can be hooked up to a TV. Then all you need is a good PC controller. I use logitech wireless rumblepad 2 and it's fantastic. You can map keyboard and mouse to it easily and it's very responsive. You can also assign any button to be a SHIFT button, which changes all other button assignments while its held down. In this way it's more flexible than the PC apps I've tried that let you use a PS3 controller on PC.

I've played Mass Effect 1 and DA:O on it and it was great.

Hey, everyone. I was just over at the EA store and noticed that they are showing the PS3 version of Dragon Age: Origins - Awakenings as "In Stock" for 39.95.

If anyone still has credit, on their account, from the Best Buy Sims 3 card deals that we enjoyed last summer, this could be a pretty good price. Regular shipping is free but I now get charged CA tax. There is potential to make this deal even sweeter if you had pre-ordered Dante's Inferno and got the $15 discount code from the snafu that caused orders to be canceled.

I would have posted this in the deal's forum but I wasn't sure if the item will ship right away since the release date is listed as March 16. If anyone wants to jump on this and report back, let us know. I'm not because I don't have the first one and have a huge backlog of other games before I get DA:O.

Good luck!

Just wondering if the PS3 version of patch 1.04 for Dragon Age that came out on Tuesday was bugged like the 360 version and had to be pulled or if it was OK. If it's OK, I was going to recommend this game to some PS3-only owner friends I have. Thanks in advance.

any news of a GOTY version with all this DLC included? That would be nice.
