seven...err, nearly three minutes in heaven

YOU GUYS Dragon Age II is out in less than a month. Less than a month! March 8th! There's a downloadable demo coming on February 22 that will allow you to play through the game's prologue. Personally, I'm unsure if I'll play the demo, or if I'll just wait and mainline the entire thing when it arrives.

The point of all this is, I didn't think I could get more excited about this game, but then this three minutes of footage showed up and...well, is that a metaphorical boner in my pants or am I just happy to see this?

Sorry, that was gross and didn't really make any sense. Still: OH YES MARCH 8th.

What class do you prefer playing? My first preference is rogue. I like to get all up close and personal ooh deadly melee style, and, much like Jill Valentine, I consider myself to be a Master of Unlocking.

I haven't played Dragon Age (not because I don't want to, but because I simply can't afford it), but I do have some strong class preferences.

If it's the sort of game where having a high intelligence or charisma score opens up more dialogue options, then I'll play as a bard type character (or if that's not available, a wizard). If mental stats aren't an issue, but class still determines important story elements, then I'll always go wizard.

If it's the sort of game where class is basically all about combat style, then I'll nearly always play a support character. I always find it really fulfilling to stand in the back buffing and healing my party and watching them tear through our enemies.

Go to the mighty and they have an 11-minute video of live gameplay.

I am also very excited but still haven't beat the first Dragon Age yet, and don't know whether I should fast track it now, or just Wiki the ending, beat it at a later date, and pick up the sequel. The only thing holding me back with the first one is I'm in some stupid maze like boring level and it's sapping my enjoyment.

And while I didn't take advantage of this fact, I can't believe they cut out all other races for the second game. How damned bizarre.
