Unskippable: Dragon Age II

Dragon Age II

There's dragons, it's an age... finally! A game delivers!

Watch Video

i think the plot would have been better if it had contained that guy sleeping with 5 women on his pile of money and then high-fived superman

Thought they'd make a comment along the lines of '*gasp* language! You're a lehdy!' when she said 'BS'

Kinda surprised they didn't go there too or at least mention how Bioware RPG's these days learn bad language by their second installment.

Also, and I don't know if I bitched about this before on one of the quadrillion 'DA2 SUX' threads but, does anybody else think the knives and swords in DA2 look like the plastic, toy weapons you can find in any given department store? The blades all look so fat, dull and, non-threatening and they have since the first game. It's hard to take them seriously.

Another great show guys, as always!

I knew they were going to mention "Putties", I could feel it. Also, best quote so far:

"They only use two burly men to drag you in?"

I like Dragon Age as a game, but Dragonage actually sounds a lot more interesting.

Awww, I was waiting to hear "Now, watch my Darkspawn GROOOOOOOOOW!"

Nice when a game actually lives up to its title isn't it? :P

Not that it makes it good though...

Dragonage would definitely make the Olympics more interesting. :)

Oh man... I miss the putties.

As much flak as DA2 gets, I still really enjoyed that game. Very fun combat, great voice acting, and while not the best stories, still pretty interesting.

Nice work, guys. I chuckled!

That dude just looks like Letho on vacation. I guess the creators of DA2 spared him at the end of the Witcher 2...

I'd be all over a Lipizzaner dragon.

Finally!
Great episode as always.

This was good, but it seems like you guys where quiet more than usual. Is there less to comment on or is that just me?

I know right?
They made new baldes for DA2 but the one time we see a blade close up they use one of the old lego swords.

I was wondering when they were going to do this one. Not as funny as the other episodes though, sadly.

"...finally! A game delivers!"

Yes, it delivered a lackluster story and more repetition of environments and enemies and encounters than should be legal.

Also, the Unksippable video was faaaaar more enjoyable than the actual game. Video was good for some laughs as it was intended for I think.

I hope you're happy with yourself. Because of your post, I just went to Youtube and watched a two minute long Rita Repulsa montage. You ass.

Rita should have just stuck with memes to take over the world. IT seems more effective.

Oh wow, nice job so far with the, "they made this shit game into something funny" comments.

What no boob jokes about the magic chick? Or for the next one, "Your mom has a massive Rack."

Damnit, because of you I had to go watch that same montage! I hate all of you.

Watching this video made me realize just how bland the backgrounds were...

I noticed that two. The swords do look fat and dull sometimes. I did like Hawke's personal knife used for threatening, murdering, and getting in the way of sex.

When he tells the first story he actually makes your sister's breasts bigger than they are later. While he gives your brother cool armor.
Thanks Bioware.
Sick Pigs.

"The truth?! Well ok she actually looks as if she can handle the truth." hahhaha loved this.

...I just watched the motange too. This is turning into an epidemic.

They did play around with the whole frame-story thing in some amusing ways, the most memorable being in Varric's loyalty quest, where it opens with Varric alone against an infinite horde of enemies getting one-hit-killed -- before the Seeker calls BS again and it goes back to the "real" tale. (It plays better than that sounds.)

I did like the game, though, despite the background overuse and occasional plot silliness. (The plot was a *lot* more coherent than ME2, after all. Which I also enjoyed, incidentally.)

Indeed.

As long as you can blend it with a few lies, it should be okay.

Good video.

Ea is such a bad influence on Bioware. Mooning, smoking, franchise milking, down-dumbing....it used to be such a good kid, Bioware....

I actually do wanna play this game

when I have time to play any game for an extended period of time anymore :/
