Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition is at a new price-low in this Steam sale at $10.20, and is a much better deal than buying Origins or Awakening separately. If you are just looking to buy the Awakening expansion from the Steam U.S. store, get the Ultimate Edition instead, as it is only a 1-cent difference but with the bonus bundle of downloadable content. If you don't already own it, this is a recommended purchase.
Dragon Age 2 was 50% off ($30) just earlier this week at Origin, so we've seen better prices very recently. If you hesitated at that price point, you should definitely pass on it this time as well. Amazon.com is currently price matching this Steam daily deal as well as either a physical dvd (+free shipping) or PC digital download.
Digital strategy guides are 50% off but they seem to be a waste of your money because of the amazing font of information available online at the Dragon Age Wiki which far surpasses what you'll find in print.
