    EA, you sneaky.....

    So i've been playing DragonAge since i got it last night. Well I made it to this camp and there is a npc there with a quest, I start talking to him to do the quest and one of the options to pick was:
    (download content) sure I'll help you out.

    so I click it and it takes me to the in game download manager and says I would have to pay 560 points ( or around that) for the content. That's ass.

    with that said I really do like this game and will continue to play it,
    it just caught me off guard that there using in game npc's to sell me down loadable content.

    for others playing this how many times have you come across npc's trying to sell you content?

    By the sound of it, it's not mandatory to buy stuff. It's still a dick move, but it would be worse if you couldn't beat it without buying premium gear.

    I read they said it's not additional charges it's just dlc available on release.

    They do give you free stuff, they gave me a free quest and 2 free items to download, but the rest cost points.
    I read they wanted to expand the game for the user beyond the full game they give you.

    also I want to point out you don't have to get the quest to finish the game. mabey i'll get them after I beat the game.
