Steam Sale: Dragon Age: Origins Now 33% Off

RPG fans who haven't yet picked up Dragon Age yet should be pleased to know that BioWare's fantastic fantasy role playing game is part of Steam's Midweek Madness sale.

Dragon Age: Origins and the Dragon Age: Origins Digital Deluxe Edition are now available for 33 percent off until Thursday at 4 PM PST. This brings the regular edition $33.49 and the Digital Deluxe edition $43.54.

Those who have already gone through Dragon Age: Origins can get more now with the Awakening expansion pack, though sadly that is not on sale on Steam at its $39.99 asking price.

    I might have to actually buy this one (not I'm not a pirate). My friend bought it when it first came out and finished it a couple of weeks later. He gave me the game, but it absolute refuses to install on my system (64 bit Windows 7, core i5-750, Diamond Radeon HD 5850). I have tried with a couple of different DVD drives, over my network, and manually extracting the install files, but to no avail. Apparently this is a common problem with this game when installing from the DVD (based on the number of posts I've seen on various websites). Hopefully, I'll have better luck with a Steam download/install.

    If you like roleplaying this is the game for you!
    It isn't free world in the way oblivion is, but it's far superior to it in voice acting and has a solid gameplay. The plot is very good and multiforked, and you can't help but to feel you're IN the game, instead of just watching it. It beats nwn 1 and 2 in simplicity and is great fun. It's M rated for a reason, but then if you're reading this, chances are you're grown up enough to handle it.
    Great voice acting, great plot, great gameplay, easy modding installs(dazip), very good overall impression. Controls and menu system needs getting used to, but is still better than previous games from the vendor.

    Had nary a problem installing it off of the DVD myself, although getting the online content has proved to be a nightmare and is still not working properly.

    install a downloaded copy instead - I always do that. Also makes the game easier to sell afterwards if the film on the dvd box hasn't been broken. And you're legally allowed to do that if you own the game - at least you were in denmark at the time I researched it.

I think they had some flaky discs in their initial release. That would explain why so many people experienced install problems.

    This might be what finally gets me to load Steam. I bought the game on DVD and it installed fine, but having to use the DVD all the time to play it is an irritant I can do without.
