A bit of info on the new main character, Hawke.

Yup, that's right, apparently in Dragon Age II, you don't get to create Generic Warden, you instead have "Hawke" as your protagonist.

On the one hand, since you can still apparently choose class, gender, and other important stuff, it sounds like it'll be a lot like "Sheppard" in Mass Effect, which obviously works just fine. Plus it'll allow this character to be voiced and actually react to things, which should add to the immersiveness. (Shush spellcheck, that is a perfectly cromulent word. And ha, spellcheck has fits over "spellcheck," which I guess is supposed to be two words, but anyhow!)

On the other hand, I kinda liked having a vaguely more set character for Mass Effect, and a slightly different character experience for Dragon Age.

Oh well, can't say yet whether this change will be for the better or worse, but at least it's a tidbit of info!

On a third hand, I really need to go back and finish DA.

I should do like one person said, turn all the combat to super easy so I can breeze through it and get to the good stuff.

Agh. I must forgo reading more about this game. Hate waiting.

I know, right? I mean, I'm biting my nails just over waiting for the date the trailer comes out, even!

(Okay, not literally, but still!)

I'm still hoping they'll do this, since it sounds like they're mostly giving the guy/girl a name, voice, and race/origin, and still leaving the player to do a lot of the customization, but still.. yeah, it's a step back in the wrong direction I think.
