I'm looking forward to it. Here's a hands on article from IGN describing the gameplay

It doesn't seem to be nearly as Mass Effect like as I originally thought.

Looking forward to it as well. I still haven't bought Awakening since I bought DA:O on Impulse not on Steam and Impulse has not had a sale for it yet.

Hmmmm, one day after my birthday. That would make this perfect timing for it to be a present.

As much as graphics DONT make DA-O a Good game , I would like to see better graphics in DA-2.

Im sure it will Still Be 1 of the GOTY again, But damn I spend too much $$ on graphic cards to not use them.

yeah considering that the textures in DA:O were horrendous....I would also like to see some graphics that look more 2010-2011 than 2004.

Hopefully the main character will have an active voice as well. All this text and him not saying anything (unlike Mass Effect 1 which is older) is annoying, especially if someone is watching you play and wants to know what you selected.

With DA:O, you had 6 starting characters, and could play male or female IIRC. That's 12 voice recordings they'd have to have made for each conversation. In DA2, you have one preset character, and your response will be spoken like in ME1/2.
