    Can't say he was too far off the mark. I haven't played either game but no one that I know was too happy with Dragon Age II.

    What is 'inappropriate language'? Do we have the full transcript of the post?

    That sounds much more reasonable, temp forum ban is fair enough (bit of an overreaction imo, but it's their forums) But a whole account ban is silly.

    lol, thanks guys you just brightened up my day. Praise the lord!

    Maybe EA has some rules restricting religious words/names on their forum? I knew that either the ban on the account must have been a mistake or they actually meant it and reversed the decision because it was getting too much hype.

    yeah shafting a paying customer is not how to get a following.. the customer is always right xD

    there is too much buttsecks in this game though.. the angryjoe review hit it on the head perfectly- the devs had to be sweet in the pants.. also in the first one I spent a lot of time building team synergy with equipment and skills, custom tactics so that each filled the role- the trinity tank/healer/damage

    this one is a lot like mass effect 2- they took out the option to put armor onto companions so building characters unique to be the best at a damage/control isn't an option- the gameplay tends to lean towards more hybrid gameplay.. the thing I do like about it is money isn't as easy to rack up until you get the bonus for more money dropped from mobs.. so you just can't buy anything you want (was so rich in dao- after while money didn't mean anything)

    still haven't finished it.. the gameplay is good though- you can mix it up a bit more and still stomp anything.. like my healer also is a damage dealer- seems you don't need a really solid taunting tank.. can add more damage there too- only way to increase threat generation is through the weapon or shield though (other than talents)

    it's more limited but fun.. then again dao was great until you added the dlc- which made it easier than cake.. guess it's hard to make a game that's fun for everyone and throwing buttsecks into your face everyone five minutes gets one section of the market- keeping the customization down makes it fun for the console gamers..

    not a bad game though there's some memorable parts =] a lot of them below the belt
