Dragon Age II: Legacy Trailer

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.

Gears of War 3 Announces Release Date

Who doesn't see this as "fun"

While it was supposed to release in spring of 2011 we heard the inevitable cry of the delay not too long ago. I suppose we can forgive this since the delay of Gears of War 3 wasn’t too long. Come September 20th you can lay waste to even more Locust unless of course you live in Japan in which case you will get it September 22.

What will developers be doing during this time? Odds are they will take the time to work through any last minute bugs, tweak, adjust, and hammer it home to reach that perfect score from all those reviewers out there and quite all the haters that seem to come out.

Gears of War 3 is the final chapter in this Gears of War trilogy and will be exclusive to the Xbox 360. What can you expect in this outing on Sera? Well there is going to be a heavy online component. So much so that they are going to have dedicated servers just to handle the Gears of War 3 multiplayer bonanza. Throw into the mix the 5 on 5 multiplayer and 4 on 4 co-op and you have yourself something that is shaping up to be pretty entertaining.

This does not, however, mean that the Gears of War will be over. Gears 3 is going to be the end of this trilogy, however they may continue the series past this moment with an entirely new story. Two things are absolutely certain, one Kat Tiki will be avoiding this the same way she runs from anything that may potentially startle…like clowns.  Two, my dog will hate the Locust and try to attack them. Both of these means I’m sure to have a fantastic late September.

To help pass the time lets watch the old trailer and swoon at the dulcet tones as hell rages on in the surroundings, shall we? Also…seriously…someone find Kat. I think she ran and hid.
