When You Press a Button Something Awesome Happens

Some folks found Dragon Age hard to love. Thankfully BioWare is aware that the game was overly complex and is about to simplify Dragon Age 2 properly, says CVG.
Outside of the chatting, the combat is being simplified too. Bioware has chucked out the 'queued action' system - where you'd press a button and wait until your character attacked - with more direct control.
If you press the stab button, your on-screen warrior will stab. Nice to know. This makes fights feel faster, even if they are actually running at the same pace as they did in the first outing.
The pay-off, though, is more spectacular sequences that fizz with magic and frequently coat everything on screen in gore.
Awesome! That's what RPGs are all about!
