Yeah, Dragon Age is the entire reason that I haven't picked up Demon's Souls. While a great deal more roguelike, I only have time for so many dungeon crawlers. Same reason I want to support Torchlight but can't bring myself to drop the $20. I've also been a 'world-first' type of person ('run' an RP guild in WoW)... how are the towns and environments in Dragon Age? Is it completely linear or is there exploration and a decent story, etc? I can barely stand reviews lately (mainly because I seem to be stuck pounding them out myself), so've avoided pretty much any in-depth info. I really want Shattered Horizon, but don't have the supercomputer to run it on.
