First of all, What exactly does DLC stands for?
I bought a version of dragon age origins with an extra disc containing patch or something. That version cost about $10 more than the original

Are you guys telling me instead of buying that version I could have bought the original and DL that extra stuff online?

I'm depressed
yes, you could have bought the original, but you would also have to purchase the all that DLC also, thats another 20-30 bucks.

The witcher 2 might have paid DLC, but it will have free DLC, and the paid DLC will be well worth the purchase. these guys dont half ass it like someone else, hello using the same maps over and over and over and over and did i mention over? Dragon age 2, what a fail game. How do you call yourself a AAA title and game producer when you reuse the entire city and 90% of the maps over and over and over and over. It is entirely laughable. Its not like they providing more of anything because they saved time by reusing everything. Its a shorter game by far, not really any new features, and they also cut companion armor equipping. So where did all that extra time go and effort go?

1 life changes how you approach every aspect of the game.

From choosing to fight an encounter or go around, whether you buff up with potions or not. Who you make allies and enemies with, whether you talk your way through and encounter or not.

When the threat of permanent death in the game is in effect, all your choices are different, certain skills become more valuable, you dont run into an encounter unprepared.

I will definately be doing an iron playthrough at some point. It is good to have this even if its just for those that want it. No reason to not include it.

I completely agree. Its good to see that there are some developers out there who are bringing RPGs back to their former glory and steering them away from the actionRPG-dumbed down mainstream offal that seems to be permeate every Dragon Age missions and to some extent even mass effect 2.

yuppers.

DA2, and ME2, you can simply walk around telling everyone and their mothers to suck it, and then proceed to win the fight that happens.

Ironman mode, you wouldnt do that, you would look at the scenario. Is it a lone guy, who isnt also a tough guy, sure threaten him, and he might give in. But walk into the enemies stronghold and proceed to tell him to stick it up his you know what, while he is surrounded by his best and scariest troops. Probably not the best idea.

Nothing wrong with playing a badass, but even badasses should know when to bite off more than they can chew, when they dont, they die, just like everyone else.

Demon Souls was a awesome game. It surely was hard in the beginning, but it gets easier as you progress.
