Dragon Age: More of the Same

I finally finished Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening (How awful is that title by the way?), the expansion to last year’s RPG hit. When I pre-ordered it, I didn’t expect much more than an additional 15 hours or so of Dragon Age – and that’s pretty much what the expansion provided. I still took quite […]

In other news, I ordered Dragon Age: Origins (from the UK, €14 cheaper than buying it here or via steam. Thank you weak British pound.) with mixed […]
