^Don't worry man. If you head to Walmart, then you get it at midnight. If you go to Gamestop, then you get it early tomorrow, no worries man.

All I know is, before I play it, I'm downloading Warden's Keep, since Stone Prisoner and the BD Armor come with it. Once I do, I probably won't leave my room for a while...except to bathe and feed.

Some of the ones mailed by EA arrived early, mine was one of them. However, they sent me the wrong one... I ordered the 360 and ended up with PC.

Played it for a few hours earlier today. Not exactly my type of game, but I can't say I'm disappointed either.

Being able to pause the game and queue your party's moves is pretty neat. The camera positions are pretty cool too: you can play the game like NWN(and countless other RPGs) or like Baldur's Gate or Diablo.

Well Bioware did make Baldur's Gate. Don't mess with a working formula I always say.

From Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon...od_Dragon_Armor

Blood Dragon Armor

The Blood Dragon Armor downloadable content will provide access to a unique set of armor that will be accessible in both Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2. The code for this product will be shipped along with every new retail copy of the game and will be e-mailed to people who purchased digital versions. The code will work across all platforms, meaning players can buy Dragon Age: Origins for the PC but use the code for the Xbox 360 version of Mass Effect 2 or vice versa.

As for why, because someone might get Dragon Age for 360, then Mass Effect for PS3 or PC. BIOWARE is awesome like that. You need me to school you again, let me know. cool



1: Wikipedia is NOT a reliable source in instances like this.

2: I am sitting here looking at the code for the Blood Dragon Armor for Mass Effect 2 in the PC copy of Dragon Age and it's setup is xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx. So, tell me, how are you going to put this code in the 360 when it only takes codes that have the setup of xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx? you are looking at a grand total of 8 fewer characters in the PC code than the 360 code.

3: I looked at the source Wikipedia used, and see nothing about it being able to work across platforms.

quote:
Commissioned by an infamous Nevarran dragon hunter, this armor was crafted in a time when dragons had almost been hunted to extinction. Infused with their blood, the armor gained notoriety after the hunter died at the hands of men rather than the dragons it was designed to protect him from.

Purchase a new copy of Dragon Age: Origins (regular or Collector's Edition) and receive a code to download Blood Dragon Armor, a full set of armor that grants exceptional protection in combat.

Activate the code in Dragon Age: Origins and the Blood Dragon Armor will also unlock for use in BioWare's upcoming science fiction epic, Mass Effect 2. Take your armor to the edge of the galaxy!

•Acquire a new 4-piece armor set for Dragon Age: Origins.
•You'll also receive a copy of the Blood Dragon Armor in BioWare's upcoming science fiction epic, Mass Effect 2.

*Included with original purchase and registration of Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2.

Well, I play on the highest possible settings on 1680x1050. Character models look pretty damn good, but the environments... well, not so much messed

Also, AA works.

Intel Core i7 920
4GB DDR3 RAM
GeForce GTX 285

Also a 750GB HDD, but that's not really important.

Yes. What resolution do you plan on playing it on, by the way?

EDIT: Actually, it's a pretty powerful setup you have there. You sure you need to upgrade?

You want me to tell you how?? Because you don't redeem the code from the XBOX Live menu, you redeem it from the main menu in game. You go to downloadable content in the main menu, then when you find the DLC you want, you press redeem EA code. Which is why they only have the xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx format. And since it's in game, and all games use the same code system, it can go across all platforms.

Yea, I realised that when I looked at one of the 360 codes. I feel quite foolish now, sorry.
