More Dragon Age Footage

Like the title says. I'm finally playing Mass Effect for the first time at the moment, and oddly it's making me look forward to Dragon Age a lot more. I'm not Mr Orcs & Goblins (RPS has enough of that type already), but the sterility of Mass Effect's future has me aching to get into an olde worlde fantasy setting. What I'm loving about the in-game footage we've seen so far is quite how trad it all appears. Despite being in a far more versatile engine than Bioware's previous D&D games, seeing those little green circles around their feet has made me feel all nostalgic.

To age my career, I went on a trip to Seattle for the announcement of Baldur's Gate II. Announcement trips are always a bit silly, because it's not like we didn't know what we were going out to see. Because, you know, otherwise we wouldn't have gone. So their declaring that it existed did feel a bit of a daft moment. It was in 1024x768! They were jolly excited about that. Why am I telling you this? For no reason other than to say, hooray, there's that lovely feeling of anticipation all over again, as the true masters of the fantasy RPG are going heavily into their roots.
