After the initial release info came out, it seems like everyone is focusing on the fact that Dragon Age: Awakening has No Romance

Apparently, not only will you have no new romantic entanglements, your previous relationships are "on hold while you tackle a new threat."

I'm not sure what I think about this. The actual "romantic" parts of the game weren't really a driving factor for me, but they did affect my decisions away from camp to some extent. Given that some of the currently most popular mods are about nudity and sex scenes, I wonder what the general response will be.

What do you think about all this?

Not only will you not have a romance, you can not take your DLC toys along with you either.

the premise to this is because you will be to busy saving the world in 20 hours or less. I assume the blight was not nearly as dire, you had time to knock boots while tracking down the archdemon.

Having said that? I am fine with no romance actually. I am not fine with the VERY lose ends of DA:O. I think they needed to wrap those up in a nice little packages I so fondly call, closure.

DLC items. there is a HUGE stink about this. Players feel they have paid for them and should be able to pack up their toys and take them to the next play date. I tend to agree, Bioware has assured us, we will be seeing some nifty items that far out do the DLC items. As Duncan likes to say. "You'll See"

If your character at end game has any DLC items on. log in either at the auto save at the final battle or if you have a save at the celebrations.. make sure to suit up then. Or you may be in your undies when you get to Awakenings

Also.. a tip about exporting characters over to Awakenings. If you are using any player made mods. They very well may glitch your character in Awakenings. You either need to reverse the process or wait for the modder to update and have bought Awakenings right away.. Smile

Happy Gaming..

I just finished Dragon Age: Origins with my first character, a Dwarf Commoner Warrior. Clocked in at 94 hours. Human Noble Rogue is next. :)

Personally I think the lack of DLC item carry-over is a bigger issue than the lack of romance options. But I trust BioWare. And not just because I believe the hype or whatever, but because BioWare has earned my trust with their games in the past. I'm going to try importing my character straight into Awakening even if that puts me in my underwear at the start. I'm expecting BioWare to offer me some equipment to start with. If not, then I can always go back and buy some other equipment in Camp before importing.

There is that. I do have Wade's Superior armors to play with though. They are pretty sweet.

I have no warriors, so any armor that came DLC is on some other character. I did play one warrior and found them quite boring. not to mention, my party was warrior full already. Smile

The romances.. Well... I agree David. The complexity of endings and choices in the end of DA:O would not even be reasonable for an expansion. I even have two characters that never indulged in a romance, just to see how that played out.

I think my only grief over this! I have two characters that are "spoilers below"

Spoiler: Highlight to view

Either Princess consort or prince... In that case, the lack of follow through seems eh... cheap to me! hehe
