Dragon Age 2 Review

Is Dragon Age 2 Worthy Of Calling Itself, The Next Generation Rpg?

Welcome everyone to the Dragon Age 2 Review. Dragon Age II is a role playing video game developed by BioWare, and published by Electronic Arts. The story takes us back to the same mythical world introduced in Dragon Age: Origins, the continent of Theadas. The player plays as Hawke a blight refugee heading to Kirkwall. The story of a refugee becoming the champion and savior of the city at first might trouble and discourage some of the rpg veterans, but I shit you not, this is not a boring game. It has its ups and downs but calling it boring would be an injustice. First things first…

Our story takes place in Theadas world. It is the same world where our previous stories took place but this time we will meet a new part of this world, The Free Marshes. In those marshes the main city we will visit is Kirkwall and its surroundings.

Kirkwall is guarded by mountains to its north, the tallest of which is Sundermount. This mountain has an infamous reputation. An unholy and ruthless battle took place there, where from both sides horrific and unholy creatures were released. Those creatures still exist on the peaks of this mountain not knowing that the war is over.

Kirkwall got its name due to the sea cliffs which is built on, forming an enormous and massive wall protecting the city from natural disasters, and attacks from other races. This wall can be seen from miles and miles away from the approaching ships. Huge statues carved on the rock represent the ancient gods. A channel has been carved into this cliff, allowing ships to sail into the city’s interior. On both sides of this corridor there are two colossal bronze statues , and a massive chain net can be erected blocking the navigable lane. Apart from that the rulers of the city jealously guard the wealth gathered from the tolls and trade. A slave trade that is, because Kirkwall was the capital of buying and selling all kinds of slaves.

    Appreciating the persistence you put into your blog and detailed information you provide.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed information.
    Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you penning this article and the rest of
    the website is also really good.

  3. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!|

      It says on the footer the platform i use. Its WordPress. I never heard of the rest of the platforms u mention (besides drupal) and maybe there is a good reason for that or Im just ignorant. Before you choose a platform you must consider first is it free or not (if there are any out there today) and how much it costs,how many people use it, how big is the community and are they helpful, does it have many features, can you customize its files in order to modify the fuctionality and looks of the basic platform and how easy it is if you are new at this, are there any free themes and plugins or tools that will make your life easier and give you a great blogging experience, is it regularly updated, is it compatible with the new web technology or is it outdated, can you syndicate it, can you monetize it, can you use it for any kind of content or there are legal issues when it comes to adult content or copyright laws ? Thats most of the issues you will want to check, well the most I can think of right now.

      WordPress comes in 2 flavors

      —> WordPress.com where the basic plan is free. They do the hosting for you so all you have to do is add your content. BUT they add the wordpress.com suffix in your domain , ex. mydomain.wordpress.com which is…awful. They also run ads and you have to pay to remove them. And there are plenty of restrictions when it comes to customization,themes and plugins. There are some annualy paid upgrades which for me are really ridiculously expensive. The good thing is, it is FREE. You dont pay for anything if you dont want to. Meaning if your are a newbie it will be a great learning experience without hurting your pocket. Once you have learned enough, feel confident, have money to spend and you have good enough content to keep the readers coming back, you can move to …

      —> WordPress.com where the real fun begins. Once again as a platform it is totally free. There thousands of FREE themes and plugins to choose from. there are no ads, no restrictions to customization. BUT you have to pay for your own CUSTOMIZED domain and hosting.

      And why wordpress ? Because was, is and most probably will be the most popular choice for blogging. When i decided to get serious with blogging I did my research and it was a clear choice for me. So popular = an increadibly huge and helpful community = an astonishing ammount of information and solutions for any kind of problems or issues = thousands of FREE and paid themes and plugins = regular updates = great features = customization for dayz…if you arent afraid to touch the code and you know what you are doing, can be syndicated and monetized and runs along with the new web technology. Seriously what else do you want? 😀

      But I didnt start with wordpress. I started with Squidoo and Hubpages. Both of them are microblogging platforms meaning its page is considered a blog so you have to focus on your subject. Both of them are free and someone can or could make some serious money out of them. But both of them have many restrictions and at some point I felt drowning cause as a person i dont do very well with too many rules and restrictions. So I decided to give it a go and I got serious with Psychosgamers. But i spent more than a year writing in both of them. And I ve learned so much about blogging and css coding especially in Squidoo.

      And something last and I ll stop I swear :). Before you begin , if you havent already considering how delayed this reply is, absolutely do your own research and find the answers to your questions. I talked about wordpress, squidoo and hubpages but i know shit about the rest of the platforms you mentioned. So Check what they individually offer and then and only then take a decision. There is no shortcut to ”success” whatever that word means to you. And I m sure you have heard about it somewhere. But its true. I ve spent months researching about everything considering blogging before I started writing. I ve read countless article pages and watched hundreads hours of video. But the most important thing is that I applied all that knowledge. I pinpointed what successful and experienced bloggers did and I tried to replicate it to a degree trying to find my own thing. For instance one of my favorite looking blogs is . Can you identify any similarities? Moreover I ve made many mistakes, I corrected them, I learned from them and them I ve made some more mistakes . I wasnt afraid to get my hands dirty with coding, something I really hate although very powerful. Cause trust me when I say that soon or later the basic customization of the template you choose or the theme you choose wont be enough if you are even a tiny bit as a perfectionist, aspired and ambitious as I am. If you can find something that it will look like my blog its because ” I ” made look like that. And I m not trying to sound arrogant I m trying to tell you that you have to know some basic coding in order to make thing work and look the way you want.

      The theme that I use is also on the footer. It is called Mantra. Its a FREE theme and the most awesome one I have ever tried. And I dont think Im changing it any time soon. The ammount of customization that this theme offers is really mind blowing. And it is regularly updated, something very important. There is a donation button on Mantra’s page and seriously those people deserve it.

      Thank you for visiting and posting although off topic but I will let it slide this time ;). Firstly I wanted to send this reply as an email to you but then I thought it might be helpful as well for other people. Furthermore I m terribly sorry for the delayed reply, it wasnt something I could avoid. I still hope it will be helpful to you.

  8. Ԍreetings! Very helpful advіce within this article!

    It’s the little changes whicɦ will mɑke the most important сhanges.
    Thanks a lot foг sharing!

  9. Hi! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading through your posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics? Thanks for your time!

  10. I am typically to blogging and i genuinely respect your content material. The post has truly peaks my interest. I’m going to bookmark your web page and hold checking for brand new information and facts.

  11. Anyone here missed Morgana more than anything else?

    • PsychoMegarian

      Seriously apart from the fact she had a chest flat as a board (not saying its bad but not my thing) those evil eyes were really really sexy
      If you cant tell yes I missed her so much and it seems the same goes for most of the Dragon Age fans cause she comes back in Dragon Age 3,
      as an interesting (at least for my tastes) npc character which is just stupid. to include her only as an npc. I wanted moooore , as i always do.

  12. female hater

    Merril was such a virgin, Aveline was a steroid addict and Isabella was the only fuckable female in the game but I would gladly ditch her if I had more options.

  13. Did you like the fight with the big bad Arishok?

    • PsychoMegarian

      Arishok was a real badass BUT they could have made him a little bit harder. It was interesting up to the point i learned all his moves. then it became a boring hit and run dance

  14. This piece of writing offers clear idea in favor of the new users of blogging, that in fact how to do blogging.

    • PsychoMegarian

      I follow only one rule when it comes to writing. Treat the others with respect, be sincere, be direct, dont flood their brain with shit. I am not trying to sell, I m trying to inform, educate. If being truthful is the new “thing” in blogging then it means all the previous years bloggers where full of shit.

  15. rolevaya igra

    I so miss Morgana…such a hotie

  16. a very well written review bro…well done

  17. thank you for the dragon age 2 review….i guess it took some time to complete it..

    • PsychoMegarian

      thank u donna 🙂
      ”i guess it took some time to complete it” –> u mean the game or the review ? 🙂
      either way both took me some time to complete them , especially the game.

  18. How about dragon age inquisition? any reviews about that?

    • PsychoMegarian

      isnt it a bit earluy for inqusition? it still doesnt matter i have other reviews on the way, and right now i have no time for more games.

  19. Merril is such a sweet virgin, or, not ? Thank you for the dragon age 2 review.

  20. My most favorite moments in the game was when Varric and Anders were bitching all the time … so hilarious.

  21. Not many dragons in a game named Dragon Age 2 . So dissapointing.

  22. dolls with balls

    Dragon Age 2 wallpapers are so dope. Great job with the review admin. not many reviewers say the truth nowdays.

    • PsychoMegarian

      thats the whole point and thank you. And why would they tell the truth when they are getting paid to write a favorable review? And i dont mean every reviewer who gives a favorable review is pocketing money. But when a game is shitty and they say its great…come on…fuck off.

  23. boyz like toyz

    Stupid ass game. Origins was better. what a waste of money. long live piracy

  24. Ithink I liked Dragon age origins more than DA2. oversimplifying everything so the noobs can play it really makes me mad !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. dude u forgot the constant bitching of anders, omg it almost drove me nuts. good job by the way great detail

    • PsychoMegarian

      I ve heard other people complaining about that, but to tell you the truth i really enjoyed the constant nagging. it was even better when other npcs participated in the whole thing

  26. i adore the lore of the game. the pictures help us sooo much to visualize the whole city. I believe it is a mediocre game. Not the best of the dragon age series i hope Inquisition will be better. Good review

  27. Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

    • PsychoMegarian

      Thank you for visiting. I had a major database corruption and i was forced to rebuild the whole site from the beggining so everything is still raw. Im checking the site on chrome and firefox and there are no issues. But when i zoom (200%) in at the pages when I use chrome the images start to move around and they look like crarp…BUT at 100% everything is perfect and I use big text font (20px) so even if someone is 1,5 meters away from screen like I am, they dont have to zoom in order to read the text. I dont use safari and internet explorer is so freaking slow that it drives me nuts so….
      Im glad you like the site…thats the whole point…Eye candy…!!!
