Whoo-Hoo!  
 Dragon Age II Teaser Trailer!!

Awesome! :D

Hmm, Flemeth's voice does the voice over.  This would seem to support my theory that we might be playing her grandkid, aka, the Old God reborn to Morrigan if you make certain choices in DA.  Of course, if you don't make those choices...but I'm sure they'd have a way around that.  And it begs the question...if you killed Flemeth in the original game, is she really dead??

So, what else does the site have to say about the sequel?  Seems we'll be playing in the Free Marches, which is north of Ferelden on the DA map.  The description of Kirkwall, one of the cities, has this to say:  "Any ship approaching Kirkwall will first see the cliffs – the “wall” that the city is named for – from many miles off. This sheer cliff is made of the same black stone that the city was built on, a pantheon of vile guardians representing the Old Gods carved into its face. Over the years the Chantry has effaced many of these profane sentinels, but it is next to impossible to destroy them all."

Interesting, that they're bringing the Old Gods into it, and specifically commenting on the Chantry's attempts to wipe them out.  And then in the trailer, your PC (presumably) has some deep evil-seeming power he seems reluctant to call upon...I stand behind my theory!

As cool as the trailer is, I can't wait to start seeing some real screenshots from the gameplay.  I wonder how improved the graphics are, and I find it interesting they're giving the PC a voice this time around.  Makes me wonder if conversational options will be more like the Mass Effect series.

I really hope that you get to pick who you play. I don't want to be stuck playing some sword swinging probably half evil insane god.

But that's just me. And I assume Morrigan has ways of sleeping with men, regardless of your choice, but then why did someone still die. And, yes I never really thought Flemith was dead - and that's sad, since I really really liked Morrigan.

It's the cover story for Game Informer right now, and the indication is that you're playing as Hawke, one of the survivors of the Darkspawn attack at Lothering. You can choose your character's gender and class, but Hawke's always going to be a human.

The character is full-voiced, and I think that the conversation options will definitely be Mass Effect-like. They did this for the Leliana's Song add-on.

I don't know. I love DA, but I really, really, really love having character control. I guess I'm just some weird combination of nervous and excited about this.

I think...I don't think they'll take away our character control. It's sort of a defining aspect of DA. Hmm. I didn't play the LS add-on, but it makes me think they used that to try out the idea before deciding for sure for DA2? I wonder who they'll get to voice the characters. I assume, like ME, it will be one choice for male, and one for female PCs, regardless of race.

I really hope we get the option to play elven and dwarven characters, anyway. I'd hate for DA to become too much like ME.

Dragon Age: Witch Hunt DLC
Did you see this DLC announcement for the continuation of the Morrigan storyline? http://dragonage.bioware.com/dao/witch_hunt/

I hope that they got Claudia Black back for the voice work!

Re: Dragon Age: Witch Hunt DLC
OMG, yes! A friend IM'd me this morning with the link. :) I'll bet thousands of Morrigan-romance fans everywhere are beside themselves. I'm pretty excited, too, as that's one definite plot thread left hanging.

Re: Dragon Age: Witch Hunt DLC
And if they don't have Claudia Black...well, that would be a crime, and make the DLC pretty worthless, really.
