Wow. Dragon Age is getting some amazing deals today.

DAII, despite its flaws, is TOTALLY worth $5 for anyone. And DA:Origins + every last scrap of DLC available for less than $10? (Kotaku, Direct2Drive is offering it at $7.50, catch up #corrections ) That's incredible. If I didn't already own both on Xbox, I'd jump on this.

Hell, I still may, just for the sake of modding and high resolution textures. We'll see.
