Dragon Age II is Obviously Better than Dragon Age: Origins

When I started playing Dragon Age: Origins, I didn’t know that I would be sucked into the story and gameplay. It happened again with Bioware’s expansion, Awakening. While my personal preference is more sci-fi with RPGs, I thoroughly enjoyed the medieval carnage offered in the Dragon Age universe.

Going back a year ago, I remember seeing a card that all but confirmed a sequel was in the making. It seems like such a short time, and now with the release only a month away, Electronic Arts saw fit to show off a demo for Dragon Age II.

Holy shit.



Crysis 2 Multiplayer Preview

I was invited by Electronic Arts to get a hands-on impression for the multiplayer of Crysis 2. Since I’m currently playing Crysis on PC to get a sense of what the series is like, I happily agreed to head out to San Francisco to experience CryEngine 3 and Crysis 2.

It would have been nice to have actually been on the guest list since I RSVP’d, but that’s life.
