Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix – Dragon Age: Origins – Return to Ostagar

Another week, another Dragon Age: Origins DLC. What can I say, I like my Dragon Age DLC. Was there a lot of DLC for this game, hell yes. Was it all good, eh, but it wasn’t all bad either. Unfortunately this DLC ranges on the eh side.

If you played this game, which I hope you have because it’s awesome, you can probably tell what this DLC is about. You’ll be tasked with going back to Ostagar, because why the hell not. You’ll relive the battle that you didn’t fight in, luckily because the game would have been over then, and get some vengeance for that stupid king Cailan and Duncan. This makes me wonder if stupidity runs in that family because not only is Cailan not all that bright, but Alistair also follows suit. Maybe it’s just bad genetics.

This really isn’t even a great mission. I mean you go back for vengeance, mostly for Alistair’s sake to take down the ogre that killed Cailan and Duncan. When you think about it really, I mean it’s not like the ogre did it on purpose. This ogre is just a killing machine and didn’t have a grudge against Cailan or Duncan that he personally sought them out and killed them on purpose. While you’ll also receive Cailan’s armor, I guess this brings Alistair some closure. For this mission you’ll probably want to bring Alistair and Wynne since they were actually there, but you can always piss them off and not bring them. I found this a little odd too that you would travel all the way back to Ostagar even though once you leave Lothering you can’t go back because it’s overrun. How did you get back to Ostagar then? Doesn’t make much sense to me.

This DLC mission is also played in the main game and can be done at any time meaning that it has the same playability as the rest of the game. Save your game people, I can’t warn you enough that something can always go wrong with this game and you’ll lose everything. While this DLC runs fine for me, BioWare games make me weary and I hate losing data because I didn’t save enough.

Since the playability is the same, it’s safe to say that the graphics are the same as well. We already know that they aren’t great.

I hope you’re not playing this DLC for the extra trophies because there’s only one. It’s not a missable trophy and you should get it on the first try since it is for just playing the mission in its entirety. Not all that difficult.

Absolutely no multiplayer for this DLC.

Overall I give this DLC a 2 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ You get to see another side of Ostagar that you didn’t see when you had originally been there.
+ If you’re an Alistair or Wynne fan you can help them with some closure on the events that happened at Ostagar.

What’s not so Great:
It’s like this game had a quota on how much DLC needed to be made and this was thrown in to meet that quota.
One of the more boring DLC’s for this whole game as you really have no reason to go back and take vengeance for two people your character didn’t even know all that well.

This isn’t the best DLC in the game, but it isn’t the worst either. It’s just another mission added in to make your game last longer. While I’m all for that, I could have done without this DLC. If you’re a hardcore Dragon Age fan you’ll probably want to play this DLC, but for all of you casual Dragon Age players I would say to skip this one because it’s not worth the $4.99 price tag it still carries.

If you thought we were done with Dragon Age: Origins, you are sadly mistaken because we are so not done with this game. I told you there was a lot of DLC. Now for this one though, you can either qualify this as a DLC or an expansion but for the sake of this blog I’m going to count it as a DLC. It’s Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening. I’ll let you know more about it next week.

Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix – Dragon Age: Origins – The Stone Prisoner

Because you didn’t have enough companions to begin with, The Stone Prisoner lets you add in another companion so you have an even more difficult time choosing who you’re going to bring with you each time you travel. This was during a time where BioWare added in companions via DLC. Let me tell you more about The Stone Prisoner and then let you know if it was worth it or not.

The Stone Prisoner, played in the main campaign of the game, allows you to travel to Honnleath. Here you’ll find an ancient golem frozen in time. Throughout this DLC, which is more like just a simple quest, you’ll unlock why this golem, Shale, is frozen in the center of the town, find out a little more about the town, and recruit one of your more powerful allies in the game. Shale also comes with a past that you’ll learn about throughout the course of the game.

This is a short and sweet DLC that rewards you at the end by giving you a new companion and lets you get some pretty cool loot. Once again this DLC contains a bunch of Dragon Age lore as well as recruiting Shale. Shale is packed with lore as well and is a really cool character to begin with. While Shale has been later seen in the Dragon Age novels, I’m still waiting for her to make an appearance in a game. Unless they kill her off in the novel, like some other characters, and she’s never seen again.

While I didn’t run into any problems the many times I played this DLC, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t problems. As I always say with BioWare games, make sure you have a backup save because at any moment something can go wrong.

Since this is played in the main game you’ll have the same graphics as the rest of the game which as I’ve said multiple times is not this games strong point. Anyway, as you can imagine these graphics do not hold up today even though Shale does look pretty cool.

Play this DLC and you’ll have yourself another two trophies. One of them is story related and the other you have to work for. It’s not hard, but you’ll have to help Shale with her memories. It’s a worthy cause, not just for the trophy, but for the extra lore.

Three cheers for no multiplayer!

Overall I give this DLC a 4.5 out of 5

What’s Great:
+ Dragon Age fans will love the lore that comes with this DLC.
+ There is a short story that goes along with recruiting Shale and it’s a pretty interesting one.
+ After the DLC’s all over you’ll have Shale as a companion who is awesome.

What’s Not So Great:
Not really a DLC, again, but more like a quest within the game. There really isn’t much more after recruiting Shale.

Overall I thought this was a pretty cool DLC, you get a new companion, you get some extra Dragon Age lore, and you have a little story to go with it all. Have I mentioned how much I love Dragon Age lore? Anyway, if you want another companion to have to choose from during your travels then this is the DLC for you. Also, this DLC is free so if you have Dragon Age, why not just get this DLC?

Now for next week, you probably already know it because there’s a ton of DLC for this game, it’s another Dragon Age DLC. This time will be the DLC Return to Ostagar. From the title you can already probably tell what the DLC is about, but I’ll go into it a little more next week.

Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix – Dragon Age: Origins – Warden’s Keep

We’re entering a time now with all Dragon Age: Origins DLC. Before I played the massive amount of games that I’ve been playing over the past few years, I seriously only owned about 10-15 games and the amount of DLC that I bought was limited. My love for Dragon Age: Origins pushed me to buy the complete edition once it came out which meant that I had every single piece of DLC for this game along with the huge expansion that was added on. First on my list of DLC that was completed was Warden’s Keep.

Played in the main game, Warden’s Keep, goes deeper into the reason of why the Grey Wardens were expelled from Ferelden in the first place. While in camp, you’ll be approached by Levi Dryden. His ancestor was the Sophia Dryden, commander of the Grey Wardens at Soldier’s Peak, and it was her that started the events at Soldier’s Peak leading to the expulsion of the Grey Wardens. Levi wants you to prove that this wasn’t Sophia’s fault, and in order to do that you’ll have to head over to Soldier’s Peak and witness the events that took place centuries ago.

If you’re into the whole Dragon Age lore thing, like I am, then this DLC is pretty damn cool as you experience firsthand what actually happened to lead to the Grey Wardens being expelled from Ferelden. The story isn’t as cut and dry as you think and if you’ve played Inquisition and imported a game over from The Keep, then you know that the decision you make at the end of the DLC is pretty important. It’s not important in Inquisition, but it might be important later on. While it’s a short little quest in the main scheme of the game, it’s still pretty significant and is always a must for me to play in each and every one of my games.

Since it’s part of the main game itself, everything from the main game carries over and is basically the same. The playability is the same, and there no bugs or game breaking glitches when playing this DLC. As a precaution for just about every BioWare game though, you never really know when the game could crash, I had no problems, but I always keep a backup save just in case.

The graphics are the same exact graphics as the main game. Yes, they aren’t that great, but this is one of the times when I really didn’t care about the graphics. They in no way hold up to today’s standards or the standards for PS3, but this game is basically about the story.

There are a total of 2 trophies for this DLC. Two whole trophies! One of them is story related and the other is decision related. Depending on how you play, you can probably get both trophies at the first go around, but beware that depending on how you play some of your followers might not be so pleased with you.

This was a time when Dragon Age was multiplayer free and it was awesome.

Overall I give this DLC a 3.5 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ Awesome Dragon Age lore.
+ A big decision at the end that might come back and bite you in the ass in later games.
+ A nice break from the main game to take some time and explore the Grey Warden past.

What’s Not So Great:
Extremely short DLC that doesn’t really feel like a DLC since it’s based off a quest.
Not really necessary for the main game.

While this DLC isn’t exactly a necessity, especially since all your decisions are now put into The Keep and imported into your games instead of the actual save itself, I would say that if you’re a Dragon Age fan you’ll want to play this DLC. I can’t stress this enough this is really just a lore DLC, you’ll get some advantages at the end, but other than that it’s a Grey Warden history lesson. I thought it was great, you might not and if you don’t have the Dragon Age complete edition spending $6.99 on this quest might not be worth it.

I think I warned you before that the next couple of weeks are going to be Dragon Age: Origins weeks, so you had your fair chance. Anyway, for next week’s Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix, I’ll be reviewing the character based DLC for this game, The Stone Prisoner. I’ll let you know what I thought of the DLC as a whole as well as what I thought about the Warden’s new travelling companion.

Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix – Borderlands: Zombie Island of Dr. Ned

Many of you probably know the story of how I never really wanted to play Borderlands in the first place, who knew that this game would become one of my favorite games, but I was convinced by a former friend of mine. The convincing went beyond just the regular game itself, but also to the DLC. Knowing that I would have to play the DLC, I went out and bought the Game of the Year edition to spare me the extra money of having to spend it on the DLC. Out of all the DLC that came with this game, Zombie Island of Dr. Ned was up first.

In this DLC, you’ll head over to Jakob’s Cove in order to help “Dr. Ned”. Zombies and other things are running rampant in this region and it’s up to you, because you’re a total badass, to stop all of this and put an end to Dr. Ned once and for all.

Kudos: There are a bunch of pop culture references in this DLC as well as all of the humor you can expect from a Borderlands game. After playing this DLC “who knew” became an inside joke for me and my former friend for months and months. We would use it while playing other games making people question what the hell we were talking about and truth be told, I still use it from time to time even though no one usually knows what the hell I’m talking about.

As with most things Borderlands, I really enjoyed this DLC. It was my first Borderlands DLC experience and it was not disappointing at all. This is the DLC that showed what great things could come from DLC, especially Borderlands ones and even though I messed up with one of the missions and had to spend way more time in this area than I should of, I still had an absolute blast playing.

The playability of this game is the same as the main game. Because this DLC is a little difficult, not as difficult as the ones to follow, but still difficult, I would recommend playing with a character that you like playing and know how to play well. Other than that, everything worked as it should and there were no noticeable bugs or glitches that did anything game breaking.

The graphics for this are the same as the rest of the game so if you liked the style of the main game, then you’ll like the style of the DLC and for a PS3 game, these are pretty good. I will say that for me at least, they still hold up to standards and I have no problem going back to play this game on my PS3 over and over again.

There are a total of 5 new trophies you can get with this DLC. All of them are story based trophies that you’ll get by well completing the story. The only problem trophy is the Braaaaaaaaaaaains! trophy. This is a problem trophy, because it’s a collectible trophy. I think you know what you have to collect and because it’s based off of a side mission that you could totally miss and then have to go back and do all over again, that’s what’ makes it a problem trophy. The main goal is to collect 250 brains and this can take a hell of a lot of grinding in order to do so.

This is Borderlands and since it’s an expansion of the main game, of course there’s multiplayer. Borderlands is one of those games that encourages you to play with friends and random people. They do this so that you’ll get better loot and face harder enemies and to tell you the truth this game is fun to play with friends. Yes, I find myself playing solo these days, but when I did have someone to play with I had a really great time and so does everyone else that usually plays.

Overall I give this DLC a 4 out of 5

What’s Great:
+ A new area to explore and a fun story to go with it.
+ That same Borderlands humor is continued into the DLC making this a blast to play along with all of the pop culture references.

What’s Not So Great:
You could totally miss one of the side missions and have to spend a lot of time collecting 250 brains because the side mission isn’t marked, but an Easter Egg. While it probably seemed clever at the time, it really wasn’t.

This is a great DLC and a great way to continue your Borderlands experience. If you don’t have this DLC, but you have Borderlands then you’re seriously missing out. Instead of getting each DLC individually though, I would suggest picking up the Game of the Year edition so that you can have all the DLC and not have to pay for each individual DLC.

Who knew that I actually completed so much DLC? Probably my wallet, but that’s besides the point. Moving on to the next DLC that I played and completed fully, next week’s Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix will be for Dragon Age: Origins: Warden’s Keep. I’ll let you know in advance that this game had a hell of a lot of DLC and that’s basically what you’ll be seeing in the upcoming weeks.

Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix – Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin

Seeing how much I just loved Legacy, I played it a bunch of times making sure that each of my Lady Hawke’s had a chance to run through this new area. I was eager for Mark of the Assassin. It looked like great things were to come from this game after so much hate, which to me was unnecessary. Little did I know though that Mark of the Assassin would be the final piece of DLC for Dragon Age II. Did it live up to all of my expectations? Keep reading to find out.

In order to fully understand Mark of the Assassin, you have to watch the short lived Dragon Age web series, Redemption staring Felicia Day as Tallis. Tallis makes her return in Dragon Age II with the premise of needing some help from the Champion of Kirkwall. In order to help her you’ll have to once again venture out of Kirkwall to an Orlesian estate. But of course there’s a catch. You’ll have to help her steal the Heart of Many. It’s not wrong to steal from Orleasian’s right? You’ll of course find yourself in a world of trouble, this is a Hawke story so it seems that trouble follows Hawke everywhere, and hunt some Wyvern’s for good measure.

As with all DLC that comes out on the PS3, I had to wait until just about 6 pm to download this one and it was an anxious day of waiting and trying not to be spoiled. Once I was finally able to download it, I choose my favorite sarcastic Lady Hawke rogue and jumped right into playing. Once I started playing, I couldn’t put this DLC down as I did my first but not last run through. There was action and adventure, getting locked in prison, solving puzzles, and running into some characters that Dragon Age fans will already know. It was once again everything I could have wanted from a Dragon Age DLC. It enhanced Hawke’s story as a whole and was able to add another exciting adventure to her list.

Kudos: While the dialogue between Hawke and her companions and the companions just chit chatting in the back was great for Dragon Age II, it was just awesome for Mark of the Assassin. Playing as a sarcastic Hawke had to be one of the most memorable experiences ever as you’ll have some very funny lines while trying to break into the Orlesian estate as well as some equally funny background chit chat.

This DLC introduced another new area for Hawke to explore, without repeating backgrounds for those who complained. It was a pretty awesome area and the game play was equally as awesome in it. While there were Dragons to hunt in the game, well one dragon, hunting the Wyvern was even more exciting and fulfilling. I enjoyed that the puzzles for this DLC were challenging even though they were almost to the point of frustrating and adventuring with a new character was also fun. The gameplay was still the same from the original game since there was no reason to change it and everything for this DLC ran smoothly.

The graphics for the DLC were the same as the original game and they were pretty awesome. I can’t stress enough how much I loved the graphics for Dragon Age II. The new places that the DLC added were crafted with care and you could tell by the amount of detail that went into each new area. This game really did an awesome job in the graphics department when you compare it to Dragon Age: Origins.

Like with Legacy, there are a total of 5 new trophies that come with this DLC. Two of them are story related and the other three you’ll kind of have to figure out on your own and be crafty while doing so. While you can do this if you have only one Hawke, who only has one Hawke, but I enjoyed getting these trophies in multiple playthroughs.

Remember a time when BioWare felt their games didn’t need multiplayer? This was one of those times.

Overall I give this DLC a 5 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ A new and interesting story for Hawke to embark on.
+ A new character that could possibly make a return sometime in the Dragon Age series as well as some more missions to bring along your favorite sidekicks from Dragon Age II.
+ Banter has always been a strong point in the Dragon Age series, and this DLC was no different.

What’s Not So Great:
This DLC doesn’t really bring a conclusion to the whole Hawke story.

Another Dragon Age II DLC that I just loved and was very eagerly waiting for the Exalted March afterwards. If you’ve read this blog for a while you’ve probably heard about this failed DLC more than enough. While this doesn’t bring an end to the Hawke story, it’s still a great DLC to play and if you’re playing Dragon Age II, I would suggest that you not pass this up. This DLC is definitely worth the money and will not disappoint in any way.

Now for next week, all of the Dragon Age II DLC was over, and even though I was playing more DLC that I want to admit, I really have no timeline on when I completed them and I really really don’t want to go back and try to get all the dates in order. That being said, when I was looking on my list, the next DLC that I noticed was completed, even though I know I completed some more DLC in-between was Borderlands: Zombie Island of Dr. Ned. I’ll let you know next week what I thought of it.

Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix – Dragon Age II: Legacy

After my first taste of DLC, I wasn’t as jaded when it comes to DLC as I was today, I was eager for more. I loved Dragon Age II, loved it and wanted to continue my story as Lady Hawke for as long as possible. I was super excited when Legacy was announced and even more excited when it finally downloaded and installed leaving me with a little statue in my Hawke mansion for me to take another journey with some of my favorite characters.

While you can play this DLC at any time during the game, I always liked waiting until the end to play, it actually takes place way before the end of the game when everything basically gets blown up in Hawke’s face. This is really the first chance that you get to leave Kirkwall and its surrounding areas to head to the Vinmark Mountains where you’ll have to stop a cartel who is hunting for the blood of the Hawke. Why are they hunting for Hawke’s blood? It’s the only way to unlock this Grey Warden prison where an ancient evil has been kept hidden for all these years. It will also unlock more about the mysterious man who was Hawke’s father.

By the time this DLC came out, I had over 6, yes 6, different Lady Hawke’s and I played this DLC with each and every one of them. That’s how much I truly loved this DLC. I enjoyed learning more about the Hawke lineage and appreciated that it gave a deeper meaning to the Hawke family dynamic that was brought forth in Dragon Age II. I have to say though, (A little spoiler if you haven’t played Dragon Age: Inquisition yet) I never in a million years thought they would have made Corypheus the big bad guy. I thought maybe we would see him in later games, like I hope we see the Architect in later games, but I never thought he would be the main bad guy. Anyway, it’s a nice introduction to him and you’re able to learn a little more about him before playing Inquisition.

Although I was never one to complain about the repeat of maps, because Dragon Age II isn’t the only game where dungeons and other areas repeat themselves over and over and over again. It’s the only game though that gets the most heat for doing so, it was nice to travel out of Kirkwall and go somewhere new and exciting. Even though this was outside of Kirkwall and outside of the main game, the playability was the same and I had no problems with the travel or with any of the elements of playing this DLC.

While the graphics for this DLC were the same as the main game, the different scenery that was the Vinmark Mountains along with the surrounding prison and the other elements of the game were nicely done and really brought together the game as a whole. For all the hate that this game received, I can’t stress enough that when you compare it to Origins it’s a huge improvement and it deserves some bonus points for that.

Legacy added an additional 5 trophies to the overall trophy list for Dragon Age II. While they weren’t all that hard to get and required you to play the DLC to the fullest and do everything possible, there were a few missable trophies that if you weren’t careful you would well, miss. If you have 6 or more characters like I did, then going back to clean up the trophies shouldn’t be a problem.

No multiplayer for this game and I really think that Dragon Age is one of those games where you don’t need it.

Overall I give this DLC a 5 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ A new adventure to go on with your party members.
+ A new area to explore and new enemies to face.
+ You get to learn more about the Hawke family and get an introduction to things to come in the Dragon Age series.

What’s Not So Great:
I couldn’t really find anything wrong with this DLC, it was everything I could have wanted for Dragon Age II.

If you have Dragon Age II, and actually like the game, then hopefully you already have this DLC. If not I would give my strong recommendation to buy this DLC because you won’t regret it. You’ll learn more about the Hawke family giving the family a deeper connection as well as learn about things to come in the Dragon Age series. This DLC is filled with lore that Dragon Age fans should eat up.

As I said last week, this was a time where all I was doing was playing Dragon Age, so next week for Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix, I’m afraid there’s more Dragon Age. Next week I’ll be reviewing the second and final DLC for Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin. Was it as good as Legacy? Come back next week and I’ll let you know

Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix – Dragon Age II: The Exiled Prince

It’s the return of Throwback Thursday! As you might remember, a long time ago I did a segment called Throwback Thursday and it basically highlighted all of the games that I played and either got the platinum trophy for or the 100% completion for before I started writing this blog and reviewing the games that I was currently playing. I loved writing this blog and going back to remember the games that I played, so I figured why not do this for all the DLC I completed. There came the birth of my new weekly segment, Throwback Thursday Review – DLC Remix. Why call it DLC Remix? Because on some of my reviews I touched base on what DLC’s the game had and all that good stuff, but now I plan on fully reviewing the DLC as I do with current DLC’s that I complete.

Onto the very first DLC that I played, which was The Exiled Prince, courtesy of Dragon Age II. Before this game I had very little interest in DLC. I didn’t need it, didn’t want it, and sure as hell didn’t want to pay for it. Like everyone else, I came to the realization that if you don’t play the DLC you could be missing out on some important stuff, bonus material that you might not see otherwise, the actual ending to the game, or whatever else these companies like to throw into their DLC’s. Not only is this the first DLC, but it also marks the first time my PS3 came online. Before than all my gaming was done strictly offline, unbelievable I know, but it’s true. Anyway, onto the review.

The Exiled Prince was a day one DLC that came with Dragon Age II. There was a catch though as it only came with the special edition of Dragon Age II that had to be pre-ordered. If not you had to pay an extra $9.99 for the character along with a Mabari that was sadly left out of the second game. Not only was this a two character pack though, the addition of the Mabari added extra scenes with your squad mates and extra conversations with your house staff and the character of Sebastian Vael. You’ll meet Sebastian early on in the game and learn that he is a once prince turned Chantry brother that needs your help tracking down the people that slaughtered his entire family. You’ll go through a couple of extra character quests for him if you so choose to and ultimately set him on the path of what he’s going to be doing for the rest of his life. This DLC also gives you an extra scene that if you don’t see will make the end and why Leliana is involved a little confusing.

While I loved the addition of the Mabari, I couldn’t understand why the hell this was left out in the first place because it was such an awesome addition to Dragon Age: Origins, I really couldn’t stomach the character of Sebastian. He’s the typical church fanatic who wears an image of Andraste over his crotch. It’s weird and it’s made fun of during the course of the game which is hilarious. Anyway, this has to be one of the very worst characters in Dragon Age as he always takes what he considers the “high” ground and looks down on everyone else who doesn’t agree with him. Will he turn out to be something more in the Dragon Age universe at a later time? I have no idea, but I’m sure he might pop up sooner or later in what will be ugh moment. The added on loyalty quests for him were bland and boring, mostly because he’s such an unlikable character though if you take the right characters along with you it does offer some funny dialogue to make up for all the boring shit you’ll have to do for him.

The playability for this DLC was right in range with the Dragon Age II game as a whole. It fitted smoothly into the game and acted like it wasn’t tacked on in any way. Like it was supposed to be there from the very start, but you just had to pay more money in order to unlock it. I didn’t have any problems when it came to the quests for this DLC or anything else to do with the DLC. Everything ran smoothly.

The graphics for the DLC were on par with the rest of Dragon Age II. I know this game gets a lot of hate, but I for one really enjoyed not only the game as a whole but also the graphics for this game. They were a huge improvement from Dragon Age: Origins and it really showed. The graphics for the DLC were no different and really enhanced the overall game play.

Trophies, there are 5 trophies for this game. That’s a lot of trophies for such a little DLC, but all trophies are super easy to get and require you to just play the DLC, become either a rival or friend of Sebastian, and make sure to give him back some property that once belonged to his family. Super simple and if you’re playing this DLC there’s no way you won’t get these trophies on the first go around.

This was a time where multiplayer wasn’t tacked on to Dragon Age, mostly because it wasn’t needed.

Overall I give this DLC a 2 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ You can finally add a Mabari to your “merry band of misfits”.
+ Adds in some extra story that make the game as a whole make a little more sense and might lead to things that are coming up in the Dragon Age series.

What’s Not So Great:
Sebastian Vael has to be one of the worst Dragon Age characters ever created.
Sebastian’s quests aren’t all that exciting or really any fun to play just like the character itself.
If you don’t play this DLC you are missing out on some key story elements which really sucks because some of them are important.

If you got this DLC with your edition of Dragon Age II, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t play. You were one of the lucky ones that got it for free. If you didn’t get this DLC with your edition of Dragon Age II, then it’s kind of a toss up if you want to spend the $9.99 to play it. Yes, it adds some stuff in that might be important later on, but it’s really not worth it just to get access to a new character you’ll probably never use and a Mabari that should have been included in the first place.

Now for next week, we’ll continue on with Dragon Age II DLC because at this point in my gaming lifetime this was all that I was playing over and over again as I eagerly awaited this new concept of “DLC” and what it could bring. Come back next week to see what I thought of Dragon Age II: Legacy.
