What do you people think about this cRPG, are you looking forward to play this game after release?

I am pretty excited of this game , it looks that it will bring classical elements of old RPG into the new, good looking graphics and new style of cRPGs .

I dont have any expectations, Ive seen nothing on the game that would suggest its worth playing.

As Penny Arcade stated...it's not quite witchy enough.

 

Actually it has really shaped up to be a beautiful looking game. It does seem a bit too much on the action-RPG side of the fence. Hopefully it will be a decent game, but I don't see it as revolutionary. My expectations are higher for NWN2 and Oblivion.

Ive been trying to get my hands on a fan-translation of the novels the game is based on, but so far no luck. There is no official English version, though the premise seems fairly interesting, despite its use of the elves and dwarves.

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

I found somewhere one short story translated to english i'll post link here if i find it once again. I'm Polish so I'm pretty familiar with the setting and the novels , they are really great deeper than classical fantasy novels .more psychologic and darker.

 

EDIT: Well here you can download the first The Witcher story it was written in 80's and it's not the best one but still it's worth reading

 

Lesser Evil

the tranlation is made by some fan ,so isn't perfect

 

And there is also one short story set in th world of King Arthur to read here (in two parts)

The Malady part I

The Malady part II

When I first heard about it I thought it was a TC Mod for NWN.

 

At first, that's sort of what I thought. When I saw the first screenshots I thought it had something to do with NWN.

Caveat that until the game is released, we don't know if they will succeed or not.

 

I would suggest that those that say it doesn't look like much of an RPG probably haven't looked into it much. I'm sceptical of the action combat but they've released far more specific information on elements like non-linearity, multiple solutions and quest choices than games most people are prepared to accept as an RPG sight unseen - such as NWN2, for example.

 

If they can pull it off (and they are fairly well resourced) and assuming the combat isn't too overwhelming, it has a lot of potential. They took a silly line with their marketing but unfortunately, the hype is required. Even RPG fans that frequent an RPG developer's site don't look into a lot of RPGs - imagine how hard it is breaking through into the average gamers consciousness.

NWN2 better look this good.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

I saw one video where they showed off multiple ways the main character could solve a problem, but that was about it.

That's more than most so-called RPGs can manage these days.

 

I hope that's not a hint about Obsidian's future titles. :)
