According to an anonymous report received over at BF3Blog, a fan site for DICE's upcoming military shooter, EA and Valve are nearing a final agreement on DLC sales for Battlefield 3 - which would allow the highly anticipated title to be sold on the Steam platform in time for its 10/25 release. Now, take an anonymous tip on a fansite for what it's worth, but this could be big news for those of you who enjoy both the ubiquitous digital storefront and Bioware's most recent games. Read More
Today only, as a part of their EA Week sale (US only), GamersGate is offering Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition (PC or Mac) for 60% off ($12), and Dragon Age 2 (PC or Mac) for 50% off ($15). This is a new price low for the Dragon Age 2 (Mac). We briefly saw Dragon Age 2 (PC) for $9 as part of a bundle with DA:O at Impulse not too long ago, but that offer is unlikely to resurface anytime soon. Either way, the game value is pretty nice for the price.
The digital download bundle of Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition (includes all DLC and the expansion for DA:O) and Dragon Age 2 is currently being offered for $18 at Impulse. This drops the cost of each game to a mere $9 - a fantastic deal if you don't own both games yet - and the lowest either title has ever been. A few notes after the break. Read More

Namely, you could win an Alienware gaming laptop, various gaming consoles, peripherals, or copies of all of the games that have been nominated.

This Thursday's BioWare Pulse episode featured an 8-minute look at the Dragon Age 2: Mark of the Assassin DLC, with some details narrated by Mike Laidlaw. Although the DLC doesn't actually take place in Orlais - the DLC takes place at the edges of the Vimmark Mountains - the architecture is Orlesian in style. He also confirms that a certain party member will have some interesting tie-ins to this caper story. Video after the break. Read More

We've scrounged up the GT-world-exclusive trailer and the video of the GT.TV segment with Felicia Day after the break. Read More
