    That, for me, is not enough to discount the magazine in its entirety. The Escapist gave Dragon Age 2 a 10/10 and Destructoid gave Final Fantasy XIII a 4/10. I happen to disagree with both (both merit about a 7.5, maybe 8/10 from me), but I don't discount the entire publication because I disagree with a single review.

    But hey, guess we'll see in a week.
    PC Gamer gave Dragon Age 2 like 9/10 if memory serves.

    Gamestar is using a Point System up to 100 Points and not up to 10.

    Or he could just mean 90/100 which, if my mathematical skills are accurate and we use advanced algebraic formulae, quadratic equations and logarithmic functions, works out to approximately.

    9/10

    Does Origin not charge you until the game is released/preloadable?

    I preordered the DDE about a week ago and I've yet to be charged the $80. It is in my library however.
    I was charged for it already, but in the FAQ it says you would be charged when it comes out IIRC.
    So I have no idea.

    Or maybe their opinion is wrong.

    To play devil's advocate here, it's difficult to consider Dragon Age 2 above an 8.5 even if we're looking at it objectively. Aesthetics and story are somewhat debatable, but some of the design decisions were just flat-out poor ideas. The heavily re-used dungeons, moderately lifeless Kirkwall and waves of enemies in battle simply weren't smart choices.

    I enjoyed the game, but it definitely didn't feel like it had the "heart" that Dragon Age: Origins did.

    Not sure if uncanny valley or just terrible idea of what people actually look like.
    They've already stated flatly there are no fat humans in the future due to genetic modification. (which is nice way of saying they didn't feel like modifying the meshes)

    There's a mod on BSN called Stanley Woo who basically bans anyone who says Bioware aren't the best company in the world. Somebody made an account called Stanry Roo and impersonated him, saying shit like "THREAD CLOSED. END OF RINE.

    ------RINE ENDS HERE."

    and "YOU NO THINK BIOWARU ARE BEST COMPANY? DING DONG BANNU."

    To be honest that is basically all Stanley Woo ever says

    It's a JOKE. It'd be no different than if I had made a joke about white people and country clubs.

    As the late George Carlin said (paraphrased): "I believe you can joke about anything; it's all in how you construct the joke and what the exaggeration is."

    Well yeah, but I'd imagine Vanderloo has a bit of an accent. Not that that'd kill it for me, I think it'd be pretty cool, just that it might make things a slightly odd.

    Plus, I have no idea if Vanderloo can act to any capability. That'd be kind of important.

    Problem is that while Mark Vanderloo obviously looks the part, he's a model, not an actor.

    Vanderloo would be a shit actor and compressing a 20 hour game into an hour and half movie will be as shitty as it sounds.
