    <p>PCGamer offers a <a href="http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/01/15/dragon-age-ii-preview/" target="_blank">brief preview</a> of <strong>Dragon Age II</strong>.</p>
    <blockquote>
    <p>Immediacy is BioWare&rsquo;s adopted mantra for Dragon Age II. Now dressed up in Mass Effect armour, DA2&rsquo;s dialogue adopts its stablemate&rsquo;s mannerisms: a conversation wheel anchors discussions and small blobs of text provide an inkling of what your fully voiced Hawke will say without spelling it out. Best of all, I was able to use my party&rsquo;s abilities mid-chat to shut up unruly backchatters. Bethany, Hawke&rsquo;s sister, has access to a fireball. Against a stream of Darkspawn, she and Hawke could stand and discuss the ways they were about to be eaten, or &ndash; with a conversation option &ndash; she could launch a pre-emptive conflagration and crisp half the incoming force.</p>
    <p>Already, Dragon Age II feels more connected and vital than its predecessor, and far less stodgy.</p>
    </blockquote>

    "porcaria oriental", combined with my below-survival-level knowledge of Portuguese, made me lol IRL.

    It never ceases to amaze how close portugese and romanian are, even though the two countries are more than a thousand kilometres apart.

    If you think DA2 (or any game for that matter) is gonna suck why the fuck would you waste the time to steal it and then waste your time playing. Don't you think a better use of time would be to play games that you actually enjoy or at least use the time bashing the game here?

    FFS

    People cannot into udnertsand purpose of gaming. That is the TRUE decline.

    Mass effect is a story driven shooter and is good at that, but it isnt a rpg it doesnt play as one, it was discussed to death.
    Now why pirate dragon age 2 ? I guess everyone is mildly interested in it, its probably mediocre entertainement and its playing that , watching tv, or going to the bar and get some beers as theres nothing else on the radar .
    Its not worth paying 50$ or euros whatever for a mediocre action rpg.Off course its not released you cant tell already how bad it its but the preview videos and the info about the game doesnt show me anything i want in a rpg.
