Re: Dragon Age 2 (Demo release on the 23rd Feb)
Yeah I did the same thing with Varric, him and Anders (I didn't get to play Awakenings so this is the first time I've used Anders) are becoming my favourite companions.
I like that it's a lot quicker paced than DA:O was, a lot less walking time and battles are more frequent it seems. Though I did like that DA:O had more conversation options and just more conversation in general. Currently I think I have around 100 sovereigns, I made the 50 myself for the expedition to the Deep Roads and the 100+ is what I was given when I came back (along with a fuckin' small mansion). Though I'm not spending that much money and I'm finding myself using a lot less health potions and injury kits than I did in DA:O.
Right now there's a part where I have to go into the damn Fade, and I really don't want to. -.-
