Will probably be the game that makes me buy a PS4.  Also hoping it doesn't come out near the same time as The Witcher 3, they would probably cancel each other out (both are 3rd installments, both going open-world, etc.).

Cassandra Pentaghast (the dark haired lady who is interrogating Varric in DA2) and Cullen (DA:O and DA2) confirmed companions and love interests.

Also, three specializations confirmed:
- For mages, Knight Enchanter (seems to be a reworking of Arcane Warrior)
- For warriors, Champion (also looks like Templar and Reaver)
- For Rogues, Artificer

Can't decide if I should play through DA2 in advance of Inquisition!

I haven't paid a ton of attention but I don't think it continues the Hawke storyline does it? So not really necessary to replay 2 if you already did.

But if you haven't then you absolutely should.

And if you have, well, there's no good reason not to replay it anyway.  :p

I have never played the second one.  You are the first person I have seen strongly recommending playing the second.

I hated it when it first came out... because it wasn't Dragon Age 1. It deviated in so many ways (the human-only, pre-named, voice-acted main character, for one thing). When I went back to it earlier this year after a couple years away from DA:O and took it on its own terms, I enjoyed the hell out of it, played it straight through, and immediately started over with a different class.

Dragon Age 2 is worth playing (despite the reused areas) because it is actually a decent game with a decent story. However, that being said, it's not required to play DA:I - the Dragon Age Keep will allow you to set plot flags for both DA:O and DA2 without having to replay them.

Also, Dragon Age is being featured at E3 tomorrow, so expect news/new gameplay footage/etc.

DA2 was very much worth playing at bargain price like it is these days.  The characters are still really good, and the combat can be fun but in a different way (less strategic, more visceral).  It sets up the Templar/Mage conflict so it is pretty important story-wise.  The entire game is basically narrated by Varric and Cassandra's conversation about Hawke, and both of them will be companions in DAI.  It was "disappointing" in the wake of DA:O's greatness with its technical issues, smaller scope and gameplay changes, but it's not a bad game at all.

I bought it dirt cheap on Origin by vpn-ing into the Mexico store.  It is one of those things where after I have done it I immediately wondered if this is the kind of thing that will get my account banned.  Too late now I guess.

Saw a bit of gameplay shown on Twitch's E3 Stream, with some confirmation shown that you can switch between DA:O and DA2 styles of combat mid-battle.  Spell effects were quite pretty in the dragon battle shown.
