    OMFG LEAK!11 is all the rage now, the new marketing thing.

    Maybe because that's the only way someone would actually still care and look at this POS.

    Iconic? You mean... what? Generic knight dude? Elf girl who shoots a bow? Mage lady with a staff? Can't get much more iconic than walking archetypes, I guess.

    BioWare's term for lack of companion customization. But who knows, maybe that'll change with Dragon Age 3.

    They said armor will change appearance of every character, but differently (depending on class).

    It honestly sounds like even more work than before, there's got to be a catch- like there's only 5 armours or something BUT THEY LOOK ICONIC GUYS!

    Cause that's what loot is for in RPGs right? To play dress up with your party?

    Didn't the Infinity Engine games work that way, basically? Armor looked different on different classes.

    Something tells me that the microtransaction-tastic skins they sold for Mass Effect 2/3 and Dragon Age II were more successful than anyone here could fathom. :(

    If the classes (within each race) had their own animations, the armors were different by default. The downside is that many classes didn't have graphics for armors at all (no thief + plate, no mage + anything).

    I don't think they sold skins for Dragon Age 2, just item packs. Anyway, yeah, if each character will have different variations based on the same armour one has to wonder how many armour sets will be in the game, or how many will be sold as DLC.

    I am waiting for when EA start having them make games in these franchises yearly.
    Dragon age 2013, out soon! With a new roster of bicurious characters for the year!
    Mass Effect 2014, to follow the succesful Mass Effect 2013, with slightly improved graphics and new cool death animations!

    Your ignore list.
    Of course they are.

    If DA3 flops as bad as BiowarEA's three previous games did, it would most likely be their last game.
