Go to www.dragonage.com for the goodies.

The character creator is what it is... design your character, pick your origin, set your starting stats, then upload the info to the community.

The community site is nice... forums, messaging, character info and progress. At launch it should have mod sharing and mod discussion and communication as well. I posted a few things... seems to work well.

Can't wait for the game.

I don't know if I'm signing up on the Bioware community....but the DA:O Character Creator was a nice get. I got a male, dwarf commoner, warrior ready to go for the game's release :)

BTW guys. Remember to upload at least one character before release date, everyone who does gets a lucky stone free.

A "luck stone" for signing up......that's all I needed to hear, I'm registering ;)

I wanna Luck Dragon. :(

Edit: I can't even create an account. Either their servers are getting hammered, EA is taking the piss again, or they just plain suck. :(

Just try again... it failed on my first try but worked on the second. The servers must be under high load.

Finally worked. I just said "screw it" and got some lunch, came back and tried again. Their servers must be getting hammered like mad.

tried it, but the screen was black, had all the options to make the character, but there was no actual character.

Could be the driver. I had all sorts of crazy anamolies in games with the 191.07's. Went back to the 191.03's and everything is fine. Was kind of pissed off since they were WHQL, but oh well.

I'm using 191.07 and the character creator works fine for me.

Messed around with this myself, created my mage from way back when I played Baldur's Gate:

Its cool that from before the game is even out, we already have character profiles we can show off

It's weird that you can't change the body type. I guess everyone's goingto have the same height and shape within their race.

Holy crap... has anyone ever purchased a digital download game from Gamestop?
http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=76143

$20 for the Deluxe Edition! :eek:

I'm going to buy it right now unless there are some significant complaints about Gamestop's digital service or DRM.

29MB?

That's obviously screwed up. They will just cancel it later.

And Gamestop uses Digital River, which is HORRIBLE.

Bah... when you add it to cart it shows up as a Majesty 2 strategy guide. :p

Pricks.

Oh well. I'll probably end up getting the CE from NewEgg since that's currently the best price.

EDIT: Definitely buying a boxed copy if its true that it has no DRM:

Yeah, just a disc check.

I have mine preordered on amazon but since they show it as unavailable I emailed them to make sure my preorder is safe. They responded and told me they are out of stock and are sorry.

How can they be out of stock on a preorder? Of course they have no stock, it isn't out yet.

I don't get it.

Anyway, I am keeping my preorder for now but going to Best Buy early on release day to try and get a CE box that way. Then I can just cancel my amazon order when I get home... if amazon ships before I get home, I can just return that copy to Best Buy when it arrives.
