    Red Cliff too.

    There is a difference in the setting of the overall story.

    DA2's setting is Kirwall, not the Free Marches.

    DA:O's setting is Fereldan, not Denerim or Orzimmar.

    More mages live if you side with the Templars. That's the funny part.

    Nah
    You just don't get a cutscene explicitly stating that you saved this and this mage

    But Orsino tells every still surviving mage to get out of there and spread the word while Hawke and co stops the Templars. Plus, all the Templars you kill=less Templars to kill mages.

    And if you side with the Templars, you better believe that they're slaughtering every mage they come across when you don't happen to be right there as well. Probably killed the ones you saved once you were out of sight.

    All right.

    Dragon Age 2 was a pretty fun game.

    It is a fun game. For me, the only real issue is that the Mage ending is kinda terrible in a "This makes no sense" way. Things in the Templar ending make a lot more sense for the game. If you have a save right before the choice, Wyborn, you should load it up and play the Templar ending in order to see it. I'd really like to hear your opinions once you've played through both endings.

    Trying to decide if I should play DA2 again. I only played it once, without any DLC. After watching Wyborn's reactions, it's tempting.

    Toxic PickleToxic Pickle Thash grape! Registered User regular
    I'm in the same boat, having beaten DA2 before there was any DLC. Of course, I can't actually bring myself to purchase the DLC since it never goes on sale, much in the way that I can't bring myself to buy ME2 DLC for another play-through to lead into an ME3 play-through after getting that game for free.

    What I'm saying here is fuck EA.

    Man, really? There is some good ME2 DLC. Kasumi, Overlord, and Arrival are all worth doing at least once, and LotSB is pretty great.

    Edit: that bandit mask looks terrible on me

    The Mage ending falls apart in two ways. Spoiled in case others who are playing are around
    1. Even if you side with the mages, almost all of the mages go crazy bloodmage, leading to you having to slaughter your way through not only Templars but also mages. So, you side with the mages, and then go on to kill most of the mages.

    2. Orsino goes batshit insane for no real reason. You have just slaughtered every Templar that has dared to set foot in the Circle. You have laid waste and destruction to your enemies and their corpses are piled up in front of the door. There is nothing that can stop you. So, Orsino promptly goes batshit insane and utilizes a bunch of blood magic to kill all of the other surviving mages in the room and turn himself into a crazy abomination monster because you can't win, even though you've slaughtered everyone who has dared to cross your path.

    You can skip most of ME2's DLC except Lair of the shadow broker. You shouldn't skip that one, because it is some of the best content in the entire game.

    Some of the DLC's for ME3 were also really good.

    I played all of the DLC's for DA2 and they weren't really that good. One of them lets you deal with some Orlais stuff though, if you're interested in that. But most of them are pretty light on interesting content

    Legacy is good except for the end boss which your allies' AI isn't good enough to deal with.

    I'm not against buying DLC... heck, I actually bought all the DLC for Saint's Row III of all things, but not until it was massively on sale.

    EA/Bioware DLC (almost) never goes on sale.
