After getting home today I quickly purchased the new add-on and got started right away. I want to first say this add-on was VERY well done! It felt very well put together, the was no “loose ends” feeling that I got from the Awakening expansion. A huge congrats to the Dragon Age team on a job extremely well done!
I defended the Archdemon and all my previous allies now lay slain. You get to meet (and kill) the whole bunch. I won’t spoil who, but I’m sure you can guess. :)
Well worth the $5.00 price tag, I almost feel bad as I beat the add-on already and I’m sure the Bioware team poured lots of development, testing and QA hours into the add-on and I waltzed right though it. Though in my case it was quite a challenge because I’m normally the type who prefers to play caster characters, and as a Darkspawn Vanguard you’re NOT a caster.
The cool part of the game is how you “acquire” party members, you basically use an ability to create a “thrall.” The target of the spell joins your group and your group limit is 4, as per usual. The add-on took some time to adjust to for me because I play caster type characters, but it was extremely fun!
Thanks Bioware for yet another great add-on to Dragon Age! I’m excited to see what you have in store for us now. What a surprise this add-on was, excellent job on the twist factor! :)

Yesterday BioWare announced new downloadable content for Dragon Age called Darkspawn Chronicles. This time around though you get to play as the Darkspawn rather than as a Warden. You are to follow the orders from the Archdemon and your mission is to sack Denerim.
The web site puts it best:
“The city of Denerim, jewel of Ferelden, girds itself for war. As a hurlock vanguard, you alone hold the power to make thralls of your fellow darkspawn and drive them into the heat of battle. Heed the archdemon's call--Denerim must burn!”
I’m excited about this content, the evil side of me is patiently awaiting May 18th which is the current date.
I hope this content proves to be a bit better assembled and I hope the ending isn’t quite so blunt which further perpetuate “thrown together” feeling as I mentioned in a previous post here.

As my previous post indicated I’m a huge fan of the Dragon Age franchise from BioWare. And Awakening was extremely well done but now that I’ve beat it, I have to confess that I am disappointed in the length of the game.More...

Anyone who has been following this blog for a while will likely recall my confession of being addicted to Dragon Age: Origins. When I learned of this game I picked it up and played it that night.More...
