When I tried replayed, this time with a new character, a mage, I end in feeling the game too hard and felt that I was more limited in character class choices (ie spells and specializations chosen) and had perhaps choose a wrong build. It's weird but I gave up and didn't think try lower the difficulty to more standard setup.
I seem to have found that the dual-wielding specialization is pretty overpowered. Which will make the mage thing a more fun challenge, i think.

EDIT2: For mention there's a mod that unlocks all DAO specializations, it can be handy.
Oh cool! I'll try to google it then?

It's an amazing game. Money well spent. I even got into to talking to party members at camp last night. Indoor stuff looks great and the action shots when you pause combat do as well.Dragon Age Origins is a game that, in my opinion, does not actually need many sidequests. The main story alone provides a very long and fulfilling adventure, so the average sidequest would just feel like a poorly designed distraction in comparison.

Some people say - especially those of the church : "Dem Erbauer sei Dank !" Which translates as "Thanks to the builder !".

I don't know how this is in the English-language version of the game, but "Dem Erbauer sei Dank !" is a famous German-language phrase cried out by C-3PO in one of the Star Wars movies.

So, this game sounds all of the time as a kind of reminder to Star Wars to me.

I made this a little while ago:

But this bug really made me chuckle. For those who don't know, he's supposed to be laid flat on his back because he passes out when your character talks to him.

Nice picture !

I have a silly screenshot, too … Can someone please tell me where the screenshots are stored ? Thank you.

Anders was one of my favorite characters in the DA series.

Despite Witch Hunt got blasted to oblivion, I have to give the library a mention. The entire library is a gallery of silliness with loads of internal jokes and pop-culture puns.

It's difficult to see, unfortunatly : It's a chimera between dog and … elf, not human.

(By the way, "anders" means "different" in German language. )

Knock yourself out, Alrik:

A thoroughly fantastic website if your sense of humour is so inclined. To Dwagginz: It's a demotivator generator ok? (alright, so my glass is half empty!)

Warning: Said activity can be highly addictive.

Also, it struck me that when I played Awakening that Anders actually looked like Alistair done up in pirate gear. As a consequence, I played the game solo for the first half.

Thanks.

I'm just waiting for Anders to actually say in German language : "Ich bin … Anders". Which is perfectly translatable into English as : "I am … Different".

Oh, thanks, I didn't know that.

But as you say it … I do remember 1-2 singers here in Germany having it as the second name …

… Found a collection of Family Trees : http://duckman.pettho.com/tree/index.html

… which leads me to the question why there is no Duck-RPG ? We already had Sonic "The Dark Brotherhood" …

Kingdom Hearts not so much, because I actually don't like Manga/Anime much, I'm sorry.
It's just not "my" drawing style. It's a matter of taste, nothing more.
Without it, I think I'd love to play Kingdom Hearts, though.
