Yup, i agree.

That's why NWN and even MW were able to push out successful expansions. Because, people (mostly) liked what they saw. The same can't be said for DS. And, I'll say that about MW even though I personally abhore it.

Maybe DS2 will be good; but I have my doubts. A sequel to a bad game is almsot destined to be one too.


"Just giving a possible reason, thatís all."

Yeha; but I'm just saying your logic here doesn't work it when SOU was released a year after NWN and sold pretty well for an expansion. Same with HOTU.

DS was all hype.

NWN was hype; but it also delivered what (most) people wanted.

Same with *puke* MW *puke*.


P.S. Stop making me support MW. Gah. >_<

I tried the demo for Dungeon Siege and hated it, but I've been reading some good ideas from Gas Powered about DS2; I think they're moving in a good direction with it. As long as it's a game you fully play, and not watch, then I think it may be good.

The only thing DS1 had going for it were the graphics, which is not saying much... But have you seen the graphics of DS2? They're terrible! This game has got nothing going for it! Unless they have a really super deep plot that's capable of captivating players till the end, which I highly doubt.

The pets sound neat. I'll probably be getting a it...a couple weeks after it hits and I've heard some player feedback. I know Di~ said she's getting it, mayhaps I'll have to walk down the road and borrow her copy.

But then, there were also people who liked NWN's (OC) story... weirder things has happened.

"Maybe he thought it was good. Just because you dont happen to share that view dosnt make it wrong in this case. it's entirely subjective."

Checkmate. I win. You lose. Game over.

And? So did SOU.  Don't make exuses. i think it's more the fact that people played DS; thought it sucked; and didn't want to touch the epxansion unlike NWN or MW's expansions. That's the main reason I'd wager.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


A steller story was never a mission goal. Oops you lose as usual.

But if you want to continue on that logic , well the OC broke so many promises that DS looks like a saint in comparisson so you cant have it both ways. o:)

But they've described it like; dare I say it (I'm so gonna get flamed for this) an updated version of Baldur's Gate. A Gigantic streaming world you're free to explore (On a DVD no less), pro voice-overs, rich character interaction, a well written story! :">

Chris Taylor rocks. Looking forward to his RTS (WHY EA, WHY????? DIE EA DIE!!!!!!)

I'll definitely give DS2 a playthrough, despite not liking the 1st much. The improvements seem quite promising.

Dismissing it just because the previous game wasn't very good might potentially be a mistake. Devs sometimes learn from their mistake.

After all, if we hadn't played POR2 because of the crapfest that was the original POR, we would have missed out on a masterpiece.

Believing Gas powered Games can make a good RPG, is like believing pigs can fly.

Flying is easy. You just have to miss the ground when falling down. Iīm sure pigs would be able to do it.

"But if you want to continue on that logic , well the OC broke so many promises that DS looks like a saint in comparisson so you cant have it both ways."

Thanks for proving my point. Like I said, either way I win.

I either win because you admit that DS didn't deliver on its promises; or I finally got you to admit BIo didn't lie about the OC.

Thanks for falling for my trap. :-" :) :p

DS was one of the most boring "RPG"s I have ever played solo. However, it was very fun to play over a lan with a few friends, turn up the difficulty and run around trying to move forward and stay alive was fun enough.

Games you watch aren't necessarily boring, as millions of FF fans will tell you.

However, in DS most of the times what you watched wasn't the story, but the repetitive monotony of uninspired battles. And that was supposed to be the point of the game.

I can't imagine what kind of drugs one would have to take in order to consider that "fun" during the design phase.

Expcept you dont actually watch FF games. The cutscenes are a whole different thing. Same as reading large chunks of text in something like PST only much more technologically advanced.

You have to remember that DS was designed for novice players and those put off RPGs by all those stats then everything makes sense.

I enjoy Dungeon Siege, and am looking forward to Dungeon Siege 2. I know DS isn't rocket science; I don't care. It's beautiful, it's fun, and it's one of the few party-based games out there nowadays. So I don't care if it's an action hack-n-slash, it's a fun action hack-n-slash, and Dungeon Siege 2 promisese to be even better.

*waits for the pompous RPG elitists to ooze out of the woodwork*

:D
