148w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video interview with Bioware on Dragon Age II for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Despite the fact that Dragon Age: Origins, Bioware's first ever PS3 game, scored very well with reviewers - it just didn't click for me. I loved the universe, enjoyed the story.
I even got hooked on the associated Web game Dragon Age: Journeys, which allows you to unlock special items in the PS3 version of Origins. I just never adapted to the battle system, and eventually abandoned the game.

Many a careless worker has died trying to cross the yard when the crusher is active, and a lot of players will likely suffer the same fate... Or, when they're in control of the crusher, use its power against their opponents.
As you can tell from the video, the Field Medic is a powerful asset to his team. His primary ability is to revive fallen teammates, but in addition to keeping them on the battlefield, he can also grant them additional health and ammo after revival.

Back in December we showed you the new PlayStation Move sharp shooter and its compatibility with Killzone 3.
