  1. That is what I assumed all along, despite thinking of Dungeon Siege 4 first. But I am suspecting that this is something else entirely now.
  2. Been awhile since I have been here, but you have my attention. First guess is Dungeon Siege 4, which I am OK with. 3 was really fun. Something new would be even more welcome, though.
  3. This is nonsense. They're reviewing it as a GAME, and as a game, it is fairly janky and frustrating a lot of the time because of bad AI, camera, weak gunplay, etc, regardless of how many points you have in a weapon skill or stealth. If they were reviewing just the RPG elements or the story, well no **** it would be getting more praise. Thankfully these reviewers don't believe that story>gameplay. Nonsense my ass. Take the Gametrailers review for instance. They specifically said that "it's too bad that it does not play more like a shooter." They said it in the review, so it obviously
  4. The reviews that are favorable seemed to understand that it is an RPG, while the ones that hated on it seemed to be frustrated that it does not play like Gears of War. Statements such as "stealth does not work" or "stay away from pistols" are hilarious because they obviously failed to realize that you have to invest points in a given skill for it to be effective. It is an RPG and they dock points because it is structured to be an RPG, lol.
  5. So I have been hearing from many playing it. I should have my copy by Wednesday from Amazon. Been waiting too long on this one to bail out on it. Cannot wait to get it.
  6. Ahh, how fast the time has flown since the delay. Been awhile since I posted here, as AP kind of fell off my radar after October, but now that it is finally just right around the corner I want it more than ever. Cannot wait to do a stealth run on my first play through. It will surely make up for my disappointment in how Splinter Cell: Conviction has turned out.
  7. Of course I would not want a game based on Schindler's List, as it does not lend itself to such an adaption, whereas the 9 circles of hell from The Inferno seems like quite the natural fit for 9 levels in a game, as loosely based as it is. As far as bringing the literature to a new audience, I think what they meant was that maybe playing this game will actually get individuals to read The Divine Comedy. Which of course would only be doing the work a service in that sense, and would serve as a tribute to the lasting and far reaching impact the work still has to this day.
  8. Well, I am 32, have read the Divine Comedy and see no problem with it because I also happen to enjoy playing video games. The only way it is going to harm the literature is if you allow it to do so within your own mind. I personally find that the 9 circles of hell being made into 9 increasingly more horrific levels in a video game to be quite appealing. I love the source material and I also happen to love horror and action games as well. Not a bad fit, if you ask me. But again, whatever floats your boat, my friend.
  9. Yeah, I am just going to wait until I go pick up Dragon Age on November 3rd before I cancel mine out. I was really anticipating this one as well, but what do you do? Luckily, there are still plenty of games I want this year and well into next as well.
  10. Hey, to each their own, right? However, I bet it will fair far better than AP. In fact, I will bet money on it. Not to mention that at least I will get to play it before next summer. Yes, it borrows heavily from GOW, but I happen to find the premise very appealing. Despite the fact that it is loosely based on Inferno for a workable adaption that is befitting of a game, the 9 circles of hell as described by Dante Alighieri being made into actual levels in a video game is something that I think fits like a glove.
  11. As the saying goes, I'll believe it when I see it in this case. Not sweating it, though. Uncharted 2, Brutal Legend, Dragon Age and Assassin's Creed 2 will do me this year. Next year kicks off with Darksiders and keeps on rolling with the likes of God of War III, Dante's Inferno, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Alan Wake and Mass Effect 2. Say what you will about any of those games, but at least they will all be out before Alpha Protocol ever sees the light of day.
  12. I think this about sums up how this situation is being handled-
  13. Even though number 1 on your list of possibilities is more than likely completely out of the question, I think it would be the most genius thing a publisher has ever done if such was in fact the case.
