360 Magazine: Dragon Age II's Dragons are all burned out
I was asking my self the same thing. When I bought DAO i was expecting to see. own and fight a sh!t load of Dragons. Should call the game Armor and Majic Age instead.
wth i thought the name ´´Dragon Age´´ was supposed to represent the age of resurrection of the dragons. No dragons...
Ya I've nearly finished Dragon Age 2 and I've only fought one real dragon. The rest were just teens and babies. Pretty stupid name for having almost no dragons.
They've all flown to Skyrim.
LOL! Bubs for you!
Very good !
Article contradicts itself. I have yet to play Dragon Age II so too much about the game myself, but the article hints that dragons should be rare creatures with only a few of them in the game. Then complains that the small dragons you run into aren't real dragons, and that there's only one or two REAL dragons to fight in the game. isn't that what you wanted?
Through the entire game I've only had 2 encounters with dragons. You fight a bunch of tiny ones, and then theres a big one. These encounters were only 5-10 minutes and thats it. The story has nothing to do with dragons, and frankly only 2 encounters for a game called DRAGON AGE (MEANING - AGE OF DRAGONS) is pretty stupid. The game is good but it has nothing to do with dragons. Oh and the tiny dragons are pathetic, they dont fly, they don't breathe fire, they just run around biting you, and they die with one or two wacks. For all intensive purposes I would not call them dragons.
Well if you read the lore in DA2 from the few books you find lying around they will tell you why its called Dragon Age. They named it the Dragon age because just as the Age was changing a solo dragon came back an caused a load of destruction so the scholars called it the Dragon Age. Not for the fact dragons might be returning but because they saw the dragon as a sign of an age of change and destruction.
Great explanation, i wish people would learn to read and comprehend things.
perhaps Grey Wardens killed most of them,perhaps the dragons left this mundane pit and joined the elves in that mysterious land,perhaps the Age of Dragons is a carefully constructed lie,a means to explain an otherwise unremarkable world that uses dragon fear mongering as a means to explain the seemingly unexplained mediocrities contained within.. who can truly know
Dragon age 1 didn't have that many dragons either. DA2 has the same amount of dragons. The whole point of dragons is to have a few who are badass. There is no point of having a lot because it destroys the whole purpose of novelty
Noooo dragons id play it if it had none at all .
Time for a geek out! All the "ages" are named after the omens seen in the age before. It's called the Dragon Age because there WERE dragons, not because there ARE. There were only two big ones in origins, plus a shapeshifter, and one of those was the archdemon.
So then its not the 'Dragon Age'... Instead its 'The Time Way After The Dragon Age'
I haven't bought this game yet although I absolutely loved the first one, 'cos I have Two Worlds II sitting at home waiting to be played. Anyone here played both Two Worlds II and DA2 already, care to comment on which is a better RPG?
prefer Trinity,Souls of Zill 'Ol over both but that is me. 2Worlds is rough,very rough but similar to Oblivion,sometimes better,sometimes alot worse. DA2 is whatever you thought of DAO.....with quicker combat.
There was only one high dragon in DA:O too, the one guarding Andraste's ashes, and although you don't have to kill it, if you do, which isn't easy unless you use a glitch, you not only get an achievement/trophy but you get some pretty good loot too. The other "dragon" you fight is really just a shape-shifted Flemeth. I haven't played DA2 yet, I'm waiting for a price drop and for my backlog to get smaller, but if there's only one high dragon to fight that makes it equal to DA:O, and I know from the demo that Flemeth does her trick again so that "dragon" makes an appearance again too.
easily killed with proper equipment.
I encountered an entire mine of dragonkin followed by a giant dragon fight at the end. Then there was Flemeth as a dragon, a dragon in the deep roads and now I only just started chapter 2. There seems to be plenty of them so far for such a rare creature.
They should fix the name of the game to "Dragon Aged 2".
actually there is 4 dragons in the game you should kill but in side quests , 3 of them are normal dragons and one on them is Armored Dragon
