We're gonna be podcasting about DA2 and the end of the week... and I have to say, my thoughts are going to be very positive. I think this game is awesome, plain and simple. Streamlined in places, sure, but I'm having a blast of it, and really enjoying the cast.
And I agree-- consumers have an absurd entitlement complex, and it makes me really grind my teeth when I see a preview of a game where the devs are obviously trying to make something great and the first comment is always, "This looks like trash, meh. I will not be spending my hard-earned money."
