It's great that they were prompt enough to complete this before Dragon Age 3 is released.

Well it wasn't in time for my last playthough but these are really nice to have when you need them. And if I play it again I might just use it to be a completionist if I missed stuff the first time.

They are time consuming to create and we should be thankful for those that are willing to create these guides in general.

With digital guides like these posted for free on the net, I wonder why they even bother to print paper guides anymore. Sure you can get the printed version immediately when you buy the game, but I don't understand why you'd want to be told exactly what to do right from the start ~ plus they are no where near as in-depth.

Honestly, I do use digital guides myself on occasion, but only after I've thoroughly searched for and failed miserably at a particular quest or achievement, but anyway…

The paper guides often double as artbooks and "proper manuals" which make them nice to collect and read in the bathroom, as well as have on your lap whilst playing. I bought the original Dragon Age one, and found it useful and well written, especially given the minimal supplied documentation. Coming from an age when games used to have 100+ page manuals describing how the mechanics worked, I found it very helpful to read how DA's systems fitted together, and how the various skills, stats and abilities functioned.

Now, you can get most of this info on GameFAQs (or whatever), and I keep that around too, but nothing quite comes close to holding a paper volume (for me).

But yes, unless you're spending a lot of time with a game, and want to fully submerge yourself in it, then the guide probably is a waste of space. I probably won't bother with one for DA2 when I finally get round to buying it (waiting for an ultimate edition), since most of the mechanics seem similar to DA1, and from the little I've seen, it appears more linear and regimented with less side-content.

I have used the DA Wikia extensively for DA2; I also used the DA wikia for DA:O but in much lesser scale. Still love the very nice manual for BG1, though.
