Dragon Age: Origins Expansion Coming In March 80

Posted by Soulskill
from the well-met-warden dept.
ishanjain tipped news that BioWare has announced an expansion for Dragon Age: Origins, called Awakening, that is due out on March 16th. Awakening "is supposed to run about 15 hours and will allow for players to import and edit characters they've broken in from the core game," and it will take place "in the in the role of a Grey Warden Commander who's been tasked with rebuilding the order of Grey Wardens and finding out how the darkspawn survived following the death of the Archdemon dragon." A trailer is available at the official site, as well as some information on a new bit of DLC that will be out shortly, entitled Return to Ostagar. (It was originally due for release on January 5th, but was delayed.)

I bought a pair of Vibram Five Fingers -- as long as you run on the front of your foot (which takes a lot of getting used to) they're great. I'm a big, overweight guy, and running has always meant a lot of pain in my knees, shins, feet, ankles, back, etc. When I switched to the Vibrams I had to deal with my calves and feet being extremely sore (the muscles doing the work) but all other pains disappeared.

I'll take sore muscles (which went away over time) over bone/knee/cartilidge damage any day of the week.

I need to find something like the Vibrams for wearing at the office.

This process can check if this value is zero, and if it is, it does something child-like. -- Forbes Burkowski, CS 454, University of Washington
