Announced today, but nothing detailed. But since it's running on (a variant of) the Frostbite 2.0 engine, a Mac version seems unlikely — since Cider/Wine cannot handle that (yet?).

Interesting. Maybe they'll do a native port then? Yeah I know I'd probably have a better chance getting a date with Beyoncé but we can hope!

If it does come to pass that there will be no Mac version it doesn't seem so bad now with all these great old school RPG's on the horizon (Baldur's Gate Enhanced, Wasteland 2, Divinity: Original Sin, Project Eternity, and a couple others I may have missed). There's also The Witcher 2. So even if Dragon Age 3 is actually good at least we have plenty to fall back on.

My forecast for this game is that it'll be better than the 2nd one, but worse than the first. They got massive negative feedback from the second one, so I can't see them making the same decisions this time around. HOPEFULLY they revert back more similar to the first one.

I think you wrote something wrong there Snake and meant massive negative feedback from the second?

Looks OK to me.  Some of your grammar has even healed up.
