    This time we're focusing on BioWare's decision not to allow players to import DLC and promotional items into the first full Dragon Age expansion.

    I voted "No, this won't affect my DLC purchasing habits". But I don't think the poll really captures people who refuse to buy DLC already...

    I haven't bought any DLC, and this won't change that or affect whether I will buy it in the future. :)

    Nope. The only reason I'm not buying (all) the DLC's is because I don't have money to burn. If I can't buy a DLC now then I don't mind not having it until I save enough for it (if I ever do).

    I won't be buying any DLC unless I see something I just can't live without, which hasn't happened yet in DA DLC, btw. I'm going to skip this one anyway, since I'm sure they will eventually offer a GotY edition that has the exapansions and all the extras. I don't like paying for the same thing twice.

    Price/gameplay ratio is off with Bioware DLC. I got wardens keep, and I say it again and again: It was to small to justify the money paid.

    Warden's Keep seems more 3-ish dollars. Return to Ostagar, maybe 4.
    Shale should only be worth around 7, I think.

    There is already a mod to bring DLC items back into Awakening: link. I haven't tested it yet so I can't say really but I thought I'd let you know anyway.

    Should it even matter. You buy the DLC to add content to DAO not the expansion that is a full game in itself.
