well it's partially due to circumstances that allow me to better organize my time now, compared to when I first created this thread, and the will to commit to some less immediate rewarding activity in spite of something a bit different but more durable.
You're right about Mass Effect, importing your save game will make drastic changes.
on first run I went Paragon with my awesome Bastion (I felt like a Jedi!!!), I may give a try to run something very different and trying a bold Renegade...
I'll make an early apology for your wallet, which will suffer greatly due to the costs of ME2 and ME3 DLC. The story DLC is a necessity for those games, especially ME3.
although I am sure you are right about this, I somehow don't like the very concept of DLC (it's probably just me being very old school, when games where delivered as "fully finished products") and in my opinion it's a destructive policy toward customers; it would've been different if they went as far as selling better gear, vehicles, warships ecc, but to mercilessly bind the most important part of the game, the story itself, to DLCs.... that's unfair and I am not gonna support such policy. I know I will be probably losing great content, that's fine with me, because we vote through our wallet, and they are not getting my positive vote on this.
Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition is often 75% off on Steam, making it $7.49. This happens during practically every sale. Ultimate Edition includes just about every expansion/DLC, with the exception of one small one that can be hard to find (I don't even remember the name of it). Dragon Age 2 isn't on Steam anymore.
this is a superb news, can't wait to grasp it
As for Fable, I know very little about it so perhaps others may fill you in.
looking forward to it
Another game I can point you to, if I haven't already, is Neverwinter Nights 2: Complete on GOG. Although the story of the base game is nothing to get worked up over, it's the expansion "Mask of the Betrayer" that brings forth some of the best writing you'll ever find in a game, right behind Planescape: Torment.
as an avid former dice&paper player, that brings back memories.... looks like black friday will have my wallet howling.
thanks for all your inputs
