I find that a little disingenuous - it's not "dishonest" but I disagree with praising his honesty. DA2 is inferior - in part - because they developed it so quickly, right? Have a look at his defence of the original DA when people questioned why it took so long - you'll find he says DA had a very long pre-production cycle and only had a full team for the last 18 months - two years. Seems to me he argues different ways depending on the point he wants to make.

He can't have his cake and eat it too.
