Dragon Age II was not without it’s cameo’s and neither is Mark of the Assassin. Teagan makes a comeback and he does so with Isolde who utters a line that proves to be very difficult to remove from ones ears once it decides to pay a visit. Granted Teagan and Isolde serve absolutely ZERO PURPOSE other than to utter the line in the video. It’s for this reason We’re pretty sure that BioWare threw it in there because of this clip.
This is not the only cameo to appear in Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin, however the others are relatively bit players from Dragon Age II. Aside from one.
A certain bard from Origins make’s a return in what is a very confusing and potentially interesting conversation. Leliana and Tallis have a back and forth that appears to indicate there is a rather rich and deep story there involving some form of deception. Leliana appears to know precisely who Tallis is and what she wants to the point that her very presence seems to unnerve our elven companion.
Finally there is the story. As I mentioned earlier I found myself asking time and time again, “Seriously, who the expletive is this girl and why do I give a flying expletive?” The story winds up being interesting but I couldn’t help but wonder if I was supposed to watch the Redemption videos before I played the DLC. I felt that maybe I was missing out on something. But as interesting as the story was it does not appear to tie into anything in the Dragon Age world other than a way to prance Felicia Day around in Rogue Armor (not that anyone is complaining about that). I’m sure at some point in the story all points will converge into on glorious moment of “Expletive me, that was AWESOME!” As of right now, however, I’m going to be here scratching my head about it all.
All in all it’s a good bit of DLC that takes a decent tick of time to get through. However it feels like it’s a tacked on vehicle for Tallis more than anything related to the lore and wondrous world of Dragon Age. For this reason it holds it back from being truly great and leaves it in the realm of “average”.
What video gamer out there doesn’t know Felicia Day? If not let me shed a little light on who Felica Day is for you. Go ahead, take a minute and educate. Back now? Fantastic. It seems that she will now be able to add “Dragon Age II Character” to her already impressive resume filled with gamer goodness. What character is she playing in Dragon Age II you may find yourself asking; well let me shed a little light on that for you.
BioWare has announced and shed a little light on some new DLC planned for October 11th called Mark of the Assassin. What we get is a new character called Tallis who is an elf assassin who employs Hawke to help obtain a special item and kill a lot of people in the process. Here’s BioWare’s official statement on it so far:
Embark on a thrilling adventure of deception and intrigue in Mark of the Assassin, the latest downloadable expansion for Dragon Age II. In this gripping new story, Hawke is joined by a mysterious elf assassin, Tallis. Voiced by none other than actress Felicia Day, this new party member comes complete with her own unique combat style and intriguing back story. With Tallis at your side, you must Infiltrate an Orlesian estate outside Kirkwall and steal a precious relic. Along the way, you will uncover an array of impressive weapons and equipment, and confront fearsome and challenging new enemies on your journey to claim the Heart of the Many.
Starin' at the war maul? Thaaats a paddlin'.
I don’t know what The Heart of the Many is but it sounds intriguing. Once can assume it serves some purpose to help galvanize the people after the events discussed at the end of Dragon Age II, however I could be completely talking out of my ass here. I am, after all, merely speculating on the name alone. If they had called it the “Chocolate Covered Banana of Hope” then I would probably be saying the same thing.
It has to have some relation to the ending or the upcoming Dragon Age III otherwise we have yet another story where Hawke is just kind of there and not really all that important. I would hate to think that we are going to see DLC centered around the concept of “Hey, you look like you can swing a sword, how about you help me. It’s either you I tie maces to the sides of this pony, and a carrot on a stick to it’s head. Either way something’s getting bloody.”
GameTrailers had the gameplay trailer posted giving us a glimpse of Tallis and what to expect:
Yeah it doesn’t really say why we’re going after the Heart of the Many just that odds are it’s going to be a pain in the ass, and fraught with peril but there’s a fountain to look at so that’s nice. But it appears that we’re getting wrapped up in an ambush because of Tallis and some poor sap catches a knee to the face. That’s not at all cool.
BioWare leaves it up to us to find out more on September 18th. Challenge accepted BioWare.

Are we to assume your name isn't "Mr Giggles"?
If there’s one thing that makes my Fridays drip with joy and delight it’s something new about Dragon Age. While Dragon Age II wasn’t the most visually diverse of games, it was still fun to play. I wouldn’t mind in the least going back into the Free Marches once more to whoop a little arse and take a name or two. Thankfully BioWare has been kind enough to release a new trailer for us. Take a gander below at the gameplay trailer for Dragon Age II: Legacy:
So it appears that we are seeing the return of some of our party members as well as the introduction of a new villain. However this one does look strikingly similar to the Architect from Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening. While this doesn’t appear to be the same character one thing is questionable. From the trailer he appears to be speaking which means he is in some way shape or form related to the Architect. I mean Awakenings did state that talking Darkspawn were a relatively new creature brought about by The Mother and the Architect.
According to BioWare’s synopsis of the Dragon Age II: Legacy:
Targeted by a vicious criminal cartel that are hunting “the blood of the Hawke,” you must put an end to their relentless attacks. Leave Kirkwall, and journey to an ancient Grey Warden prison in order to find the source of the aggression and uncover the harsh truth about the Hawke lineage. Playable from any point in the DAII campaign, face all new darkspawn, forge a powerful new weapon and come face to face with an ancient horror.
It is refreshing that we actually get to leave Kirkwall. No, really, we do this time. It says so right there in the second sentence. Judging by the trailer and the synopsis, there is something special about the “Blood of the Hawke” that lends itself to the covetous nature of individuals and has a pungent smell all it’s own. I hope it smells of rhubarb.
While this is just an expansion and sure to be a quick jaunt through a Grey Warden prison it will be nice to finally take Hawke on a real adventure. I’m sure many of us held the feeling that it was a great disservice to keep Hawke locked away and not let him/her spread his/her wings and fly. Well we finally get the chance when Dragon Age II: Legacy is released on July 26.
It can’t be argued; Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 are very different games, set in different locations, with all new (for the most part) people joining your mission. And I’m pretty much biased into loving any BioWare game. But that doesn’t necessarily mean I have to like all the changes to DA2. So let me lay it all out for you and you decide!
Doesn't this make you feel all tingly inside?
A word of warning: As with mostly all opinion pieces on PtC, this post contains spoilers. So go finish Dragon Age 2 before you read this.
Essentially, THIS won't happen anymore. And that's just sad.
Companion homes in DA2 versus everyone hanging out at camp in DA:O. I think each scenario makes sense for the appropriate game. In Origins, you’re traveling all of the realm of Fereldan to gather allies to fight the Archdemon, so it’s understandable that everyone should regroup at the same location. Whereas in Dragon Age 2, you stick around the city of Kirkwall and the outer lying regions, so you and your companions can all have your own location to relax, and everyone knows where to find each other. The drawback to this setup in DA2 is that updating your companions with the latest weapons and runes becomes tricky.
She's sexy and fully voiced, but can't say quite as much.
Fewer options of things to say due to main character being voice acted, fewer interactions and things to say with party members, gifts have actual scenes with companions in DA2 versus more response options, main character silent, more interactions & things to say with party members, gifts basically have the appearance of being thrown at a companion and the companion yells back their varied level of appreciation in DA:O. Phew, a lot of differences, but I thought I’d combine a bunch of social options. I love having a fully voiced character, and don’t even mind not having as many responses and things to say. However I do feel gypped about the fact that it seems that there are less things to talk about with companions. You don’t have the option of always forcing a conversation like you do in DA:O, and you can’t go into a special romance section and make out & / or get your tenting on. I mean…OBVIOUSLY that is a huge problem for me. I want to be able to do all the tenting and making out that I want. However I do appreciate that a scene for giving a gift has been added in. It’s always humorous to me when my companion asks, “And you’re giving this to me…why?” Much better to have an actual conversation about the gift rather than a shouted “Oh, thanks”.
And there you have it. The summary of the changes I found most prominent. If you think of others, please let me know in the comments!! And finally, what you’ve all been waiting for… THE POLL:
Gamescom 2010 is underway in Germany and today was a downright huge day for PS3 gamers with the news of Mass Effect 2 coming their way. But BioWare wasn’t done droppin’ bombs on us. The release date for Dragon Age II was released as well, it’s March 8, 2011.
But that’s not all…in a Billy Mays-esque maneuver they went ahead and threw in an added bonus. Below we have the Destiny trailer for Dragon Age II. I feel I should warn you that when I pulled this up at work today the entire internet started to run slowly. I began to watch it and I’m pretty sure I blacked out. When I came to I was standing on
"My nose? No, I cut myself shaving."
I can only think of two theories to account for this. But to explain this we need to break the events down. Two people acted well outside of their normal patterns of behavior while the very internet that brought us this trailer slowed. Ladies and gentlemen…this video is so damn awesome that existence itself altered upon its release. The internet didn’t slow down, the world slowed down in an attempt to comprehend the very level of awesomeness contained in these two minutes.
On top of this our feeble minds cannot comprehend the sheer awesome that exists in this video. We act in a way we feel commensurate to the awesome forcing ourselves to black out and behave in a very unusual manner. I warn you to make sure loved ones, coworkers, pets, neighbors, friends, and small children are nowhere near you when you press play. We at Polish the Console can not be held accountable for what you may do while you watch it.
My pants literally just exploded into a brilliant light and an angelic choir just sang out. Did that just happen to anyone else?
