    This time around we're focusing on the DA:O expansions.

    Expansions always feel like better value for money to me.

    I have a feeling we'll have majority agreement on that.

    It's a pity Bioware doesn't intend to release expansions. At least there is going to be a new DLC soon.

    I suspect they would most likely make it a trilogy ala Mass Effect.

    I would prefer full expansions, but they are quite rare nowadays. Small DLC packages seem to be the norm.

    I would prefer full expansion, mainly because the only DLC I got for this game, was the free npc everyone gets, except mine didn't work. So I can't get that golem npc.

    EA will earn more money with DLC. The hard fact. I got wardens keep, and boy was it short. Okay you get a few things like armor, but boy, what was it short.

    *Very* short. The upcoming DLC packages better include *a lot* of more content if they want my money.

    Well glad you get them to work. Wardens' Keep (I also feel like posting Watcher's Keep) is short indeed but otherwise it's really good (great background). They could have made it look longer by adding silly fights and have you travel through entire levels to get anywhere... My real complaint is that we were promised some sort of stronghold or at least an alternative to the party camp and it is most certainly not that (you can't even go back inside the Keep once you've completed its main quest).

    I don't know about you but I'd rather have a short but good DLC than a long but bleh DLC. Of course getting a great expansion would still be the best option but it's just not going to happen.

    This would be fine if the price would be a lot lower. 7 €/$ for 1 hour of gaming is way too little value for your money (Warden's Keep).

    Actually they charge us 6.51 euros, that's hardly a fair exchange rate when it costs only 7 bucks in the US...

    That why they are so glad to be part of EA, that takes all that fuss from their hands.

    Forget the expansion, this makes more money.

    well after having played wardens keep, I know I wont buy any more dlc, unless the price is lowered in Europe or there is a lot mroe content.
    6,5€ for a little less then an hour of gaming is not worth it, it wasn't even a good dungeon, just 5 rooms and 3 mini bosses, roughly.
