Children Become Voice Actors in Hilarious Dragon Age Video

| 18 Dec 2011 19:16

This charming Dragon Age vignette might be your only chance to hear the words "magic" and "nug" in the same sentence.

As a dark fantasy series, the Dragon Age games usually take themselves rather seriously. Of course, as the video below proves, "usually" doesn't mean "always."

The video was scripted by BioWare and voiced by the lucky recipients of a "BioWare Experience," courtesy of the Children with Cancer charity. The Dragon Age developer auctioned off the experience, which included the chance to help design a character, a tour of the studio's Edmonton office, and, of course, the opportunity to be part of a unique entry in the BioWare canon, at this year's Beaded Journey Gala.

The auction raised $15,500, and provided the rest of us with a look into the life of a Free Marches adventurer that we might otherwise have missed. I have to say, the kids do a pretty good job with the voices. I especially like the rather adorable Arishok who hopes to get his - or is it her? - hands on a magic nug.

That was a funny and adorable video!
They got to put that in as a reference for Dragon Age 3!

imnotparanoid:
Actually thats the trailer for Dragon age 3.

And it'll still be better than Dragon Age 2 *Sob*

I'm kidding I didn't mind Dragon Age 2.

Ot: Yeah it was alright, not particularly cute or funny but it got a little giggle out of me.

Actually thats the trailer for Dragon age 3.

Beautiful End:
Setting that aside, am I the only one who was jealous of these kids? I love Dragon Age! I'm all about Dragon Age! I, too, want a tour at BioWare! I, too, wanna beta SWTOR! I wanna get a bunch of Bioware goodies! I wanna create a character AND voice it!

*Sigh*

We all do buddy. We all do. That's why I got Dragon Age on my PC, so I can mod it and add characters and stuff.

OT: Well, add me to the "people who are cold and dead inside" list because I didn't find this too endearing. Silly? Yes. Cute? Not really.

I couldn't help but think of that with the cheese n' stuff.

Still, that was adorable. If they do make a DLC based on that, I would buy the game just for that DLC.

Argh Argh Argh...

Too cute...can't...breathe... ;-)

Funnily enough, if I'd found a giant cheese in a chest in DA, I'd have been quite excited as I'd have thought it was a rare/quest item or something. Not like in Skyrim, where every surface in an inhabited area is covered with cheeses... =P

wait, what? what was that about?

That was adorable. Thanks for sharing it :)

It was alright. I think it was cute how these intimidating characters have little kid voices; reminded me of those badly dubbed anime shows. But that's all. Cute, but I'm probably dead inside or something because it didn't go beyond that. I support the cause, yes...

Setting that aside, am I the only one who was jealous of these kids? I'm pretty sure they deserve it better than me but...dang it, I'm still jealous! I love Dragon Age! I'm all about Dragon Age! I, too, want a tour at BioWare! I, too, wanna beta SWTOR! I wanna get a bunch of Bioware goodies! I wanna create a character AND voice it!

*Sigh*

I'm smiling like a fool, because this is the darnest cutest thing relating to video games.
Really should look more into the case though with the cancer kids. They deserve better- luckily it's Christmas time so cheers for them!

Aww cute =]

but.. CHEESE! Fuck yeah..

That was silly. And cute. Good of Bioware to do something cool like that.

That is a preposterous amount of cheese.

Soviet Heavy:
Call me an asshole, but I didn't find that particularly cute or endearing, cancer kids or no.

Same here. I understand that it was for a good cause and all that yadda yadda, but I wasn't going "AW, CUTE"! I had a stonefaced stare the entire time.

And I'm not even feeling particularly cynical tonight.

Is be Dragon Age sukka, nacho kids game! DIS IZ HARDCORE!!! We be waning dat cheese. Give a good mil fo it!

"magic cheese?"
"no just chesse"
"awwwwwwwww"

cute!

"Awwwww cheese =("

Sheogorath is dissapointed!

Btw 'Magic . . Nug'
cutest thing evar!

vrbtny:
Like the dude on Youtube says in the comments section.

"I demand a entire DLC based on this!"

And if Bioware are feeling particularly nice, all the profits from the DLC can go to charity.

Charity or not, I'd buy that.
