GameBanshee preview and interview

Recommended Posts

So GameBanshee's Buck is going to fly to Irvine, California and have a hands-on with Dungeon Siege III.

 

They're going to do the interview stuff too and while it's completely possible that at this point posting questions in their comments it's going to be useless (Buck mentioned hopping on a plane in a couple of hours and, nicely enough, the article was posted a couple of hours ago.. I was studying okay?) I'd still recommend posting some if you have them.

 

I'll post the previews and interviews as soon as they're out (assuming funcroc doesn't precede me).

 

And yeah, I thought this deserved its own topic. DEAL WITH IT.

Sweet, looking forward to those interviews. Hopefully he gets to talk with Feargus about Obsidian/crpgs in general as well.


Hate the living, love the dead.

Driving down to Irvine this morning to see Dungeon Siege 3 in action at Obsidian. Should be fun.

Heading to @Obsidian_Ent to check out Dungeon Siege III. Today will be a lot less sci-fi and a lot more magic.

Will be interesting next week with all these internet previews. And footage.

 

Edit:

At Obsidian seeing some awesome stuff. Can't give details. I know all the co-op info!!!!!!!

Especially interesting since its written by someone from a co-op focused website.

Playing Dungeon Siege 3 and obsessing over loot. Haaappppyyyyyyy

First, Dungeon Siege 3 (awesome),then meatapalooza (delicious). Thanks so much,Obsidian.

Obsidian dev: "it's not usually that interesting a strategic decision - do I press this button to NOT die??" (on health potions)

So tie tie. Had a great evening talking games (and hilarious bugs) with Obsidian folks. So many cool people packed into one company.

@funcroc Dungeon Siege 3 is impressive to say the absolute least. Embargo lifts on the 22nd, and I'll have a full preview up on @CheatCC

Forgot another comment from James Tujillo

Having a blast at Obsidian today. Great people. Great games.

 

Obsidian always sounds like a great company to work at.

 

Also there seems to be lots of rather positive press coming then. At least, lets hope so.

Wonder if great games refers to something else too.. :w00t:

 

But meh, could also refer to the other games they've already developed, I guess.

 

They also viewed Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Maybe Square did it at Obsidian too?

 

But he probably means their past games.

This sounds exciting! I can't wait to hear all the details about co-op. and I'm glad to hear he's obsessing over collecting loot! All signs point to this game being amazing!

Oh that was actually a she. These were comments from multiple interviewers. Look at the Links.

 

In that case it was from Escapists Susan Arendt

Was it a newer build?

 

Also could they play it now on higher difficulty?

Yes, and I believe they could choose higher than standard difficulty, though the build they played was just inherently harder than the build you guys have seen publicly. I didn't really hear any complaints that the game was too easy :thumbsup:

You should change your titles by the way. It's been ages since we've known what "SKREEEEEEEEEEE" was :thumbsup:

Was Anjali playable?

 

I concur to that question, and add "Did they learn who the other characters were?".

 

And did they get to try multiplayer?

 

According to one of the previewers, they learned everything there was to know about the coop.

One guy tried to play on hardcore mode and got wrecked. :)


Let me get back to sleeping. I'm tired...

That sounds good.

 

Though, is the mode actually titled "Hardcore?" I didn't mind it on New Vegas where it meant additional game mechanics but if you use it here this could sound a little too "elitist".

It's hardcore. It's tuned to be REALLY hard. It kind of is elitist :)
