Dragon Age 2: Battle sounds [complete]
I just listened to this whole thing and laughed freakin’ hysterically. I can never seem to pick these out when I’m actually in combat, but they are GOLDEN.
Fenris only freaks out when Hawke’s down.
No one can quite believe it whenever Aveline’s down.
Carver’s an insecure brat, until Hawke’s down, then he’s all vengeful fury.
Sebastian switches between Brother and Rascally Prince even in battle.
I think Anders actually cares.

Hell, the first named author in history? Enheduanna, a Sumerian high priestess, poet and lyricist. She’s known as the Shakespeare of Sumerian literature.
