Oh, and by the way: Today the demo for Dragon Age 2 will be available. And they have this 'Call to Arms' to try to get 1 million downloads before March 1st.
To wit:

Call to Arms!February 22, 2011 marks the launch of the Dragon Age II Demo and a Call to Arms for all BioWare fans. We are actively recruiting an army of Champions, and if we get over 1 million demo downloads and logins on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 combined before March 1st, we will unlock two in-game items for the entire community to use in Dragon Age II. Demo download progress will be tracked on this page, so check back often!

To get your download counted, you will need to log into your EA account while playing the demo.

The items that will be unlocked are*:

The Far Cliffs of KirkwallThe Far Cliffs of Kirkwall - Written by a Fereldan refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems describes her dreams of a new start in Kirkwall, the city across the sea. Readers will surely be enriched by her insights. (Gives money when read.)

Lothering's LamentLothering's Lament - Written by a Fereldan refugee as she fled the Blight, this book of poems contains touching reminiscences of all she had to leave behind. Readers will surely benefit from her experience. (Gives XP boost when read.)

Amusing (now that the blind spot is mostly passed off and I can be amused again) that the DA2 demo is up to 265K users already. Not that I am one of them yet, as my first attempts at DL ended prematurely and this DL can't be 'resumed'. Third try I am trying a mirror. It's both faster and further than I got with either previous attempt (75% now with an hour yet to go).
