BioWare knows how to create an epic, engrossing storyline.
And this year's follow-up to Dragon Age: Origins obviously puts a very clear emphasis on plot and character development, as a reader tells us the BBFC has said Dragon Age II boasts a massive 103 minutes worth of cut-scenes. Now, there was a time in role-playing history when 103 minutes for a huge RPG wasn't exactly rare or surprising but these days, with so many games – even some RPGs – going in the direction of "faster and dumber," cut-scenes have taken a back seat this generation. Let's also not forget that technology has allowed us to see gameplay the same way we see some cinemas ( Uncharted and God of War , for instance). Anyway, the game will likely receive the M-Mature rating here in North America for the same reason the BBFC gave the game its 18+ rating; for "strong bloody violence." By the way, we recently learned Killzone 3 features 70 minutes worth of cut-scenes, so let the good stories roll!
You'll be getting DA2 when it drops in March, right? You'll be all over it. Admit it. Many hours; much bang for your buck…
