I had the pleasure of trying out Dragon Age II over the summer at San Diego Comic Con 2010. Was I a lucky member of the press whisked away to some dark room to spend hours with the game? No, absolutely not. I waited in a long line with other passionate fans for about an hour to get my hands on an early build of the game. As I told a number of my friends, the game looked and felt amazing. Combat had been sped up, and everything felt more fluid and tactile.
We don’t often speak “locally” here on Nerd Appropriate, but when something this awesome happens it is hard not to. We have spoken of our friend Jason (boyfriend of frequent guest Amy) on the show before. He plays in a fantastic band called The Pauses. This week their song “Go North” was released on Rock Band 3, yes I’m totally jealous, but I love it! Then, to top it off, the kind folks over at Harmonix wrote a blog about it. So go on over read the blog, leave a comment, tell them that this song is awesome, and most importantly, GO BUY IT!
