Waiting for highly anticipated games can be painstakingly difficult and a media blitz only fans those itchy flames. However sometimes betas and demos can alleviate those stagnate discomforts while we wait for a game to release. If those are not available, there are games like Spore and now Dragon Age: Origins who release character creators to let people play around with a very small portion of the game.
We’re going to go out on a limb here and assume that the Dragon Age: Origins character creator isn’t quite as awesome or as robust as Spore’s. However it is still something you can play around with while you wait patiently for the game to arrive on your doorstep. You can get the creator for your PC if you click the magical link here (direct link) and if the severs are overloaded you can try one of the alternatives. If you’re going to play the final game on your PC you can save your character and use it in the PC version of the game. If you’re dying to play Dragon Age: Origins then this might be the toy to tie you over until release.
