Finish Metro, then DA:O.

DA:O you'll want no interruptions for!

Good plan. Assuming Metro hasn't bugged out on me (theres this one guy who seems to be invincible and I can't find a way round him.)

Can't be bothered to finish Metro just yet as there isn't much game to play in between the cutscenes (got past Mr invincible guard though). Bring on the DA:O! :D

Not liking this idea at all! Unless there's some kind of way EA can reimburse you, maybe with in-game items and free post-launch DLC if you bought the "demo"

What kind of stupid promotion would make you pay for the promotion?
Thats essentially just renting an incomplete game, before its out.

You actually bother with all that EV bullshit? I've never even tried to understand it. =/

I did do the EV stuff, but God, it sucks SO much fun out of it. Now I do a little bit, and just rely on being fucking awesome in battle situations.

Gawd gotten bored of Pocket Mongs now, haven't played it in so many years as the whole enjoyment has been sucked out of it. As per usual still playing World of Warcrack, on Lich King 25 man at the moment which is a slight bitch. I'm also still playing FF13 which is surprisingly good after about 10 chapters haha. Wanna go get the new C&C4 but not wasting my money on it as I've heard it's a bit crap, gunna wait till I can get a decent copy online that actually works. Scary how much I've been gaming lately...guess it gets me away from my law work which I just can't be assed to do haha.

i got way of the samurai 3. it has 28 endings. im not going to be able to stop until iv done them all.
its pretty good though, so that helps :yes: but if you die its game over, you have to quit to main menu and start from your last save, but only if you dont save it when it asks you to after you die

Just to say that, so far, Dragon Age is awesome.
