  1. Dungeon Siege 3. I couldn't get through the first hour of that before the controls made me want to strangle something.
  2. Oh I backed it as well because even the off chance of another game like PS:T is worth the price of admission to me, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to take everything Fargo tells me with a massive dose of skepticism (and he hasn't really shown me anything to placate that mindset). After all this isn't some starving game developer working on a passion project but a millionaire CEO who's good with sales pitches.
  3. I was referring to what tigranes said. Also none of what you said was reassuring; if anything it further reinforces the idea that this "thematic sequel" is nothing more than a nostalgia fueled cash grab.
  4. So exactly how much faith should we have in a company that thinks laying off most of its work force is the way to go.
  5. 2/10, wouldn't read again. The new Thief has more in common with the original games than this Torment does with PS:T.
  6. So Torment's "thematic sequel" will not only have completely different characters and setting, but now completely different gameplay as well? At least they got the name right I suppose. Also could someone tell me why AAA devs get crucified for reviving decade old franchises as completely different games, but inXile gets a pass?
  7. And how exactly does their definition of "deep" not apply to Mass Effect, Witcher, or even Skyrim (really any RPG with C&C ever made)? My point is that the things inXile promised were so vague that they could end up making an FPS and still technically be right. As for Hunted: I liked Gears' SP so I liked that game too, but to claim it's anything other than Gears with swords is to be either disingenuous or blind.
  8. You don't say. Also it's worthwhile to remember this. If that's Brian Fargo's idea of bringing classic gameplay back to the modern audience then you'll forgive me if I don't take everything he says at face value.
  9. Not really, I'm sure everyone wants their story to be deep, original, with a rich personal narrative and lots of player choice.
  10. So basically, Torment in name only? Snip The problem is that all of that can be summarized as "we're going to try and give it a good story." Hell, using their definition the Witcher series is a spiritual successor to Torment.
  11. A solid control scheme is number one for me. A game can have the greatest story/plot/graphics/ui/whatever in the world but if I have to wrestle with the controls I'm not gonna get immersed no matter what.
  12. The difference is that D3 came out on PC first and was then ported to consoles where as DS3 was a cheap console port with a PC control scheme that appeared to have been designed by a drunken monkey. Also it helps that D3 is a better game.
  13. I'd have to see if they deliver on PE first (especially with regards to what they promised way back when).
  14. Far as I can tell it's during the war that occurred after Kain raised his lieutenants but before he sent Raziel for a swim. Edit: On second thought that makes no sense since Raziel's clan wouldn't have wings then, but then why are they fighting alongside the rest of the Vamps if they know Kain killed their leader? Whatever.
