May I ask why did you call this a “Dungeon Siege” game?


Recommended Posts

In first place I love all kind of RPG (except JRPG of course). My favorite is maybe the “classic style”, since Baldur’s Gate to Dragon Age Origins (not 2!). But sometimes I want to run frenetic Action-RPG like Titan Quest (and Grim Dawn is close!), Sacred 1 & 2 (maybe not 3...), Diablo 1 & 2 (definitely not 3!), and Dungeon Siege 1& 2 (sadly not 3!)... what is the problem with the third version of these games? One word: CONSOLIZATION

 

Have you ever tried to define this saga before accepted the job? Here is a quick comparative:

 

Dungeon Siege 1 & 2

1a) Custom character with a basic but complete character editor

2a) Abilities advancement as fight with Skill tree and special powers

3a) Rich, complex and deeper group management

4a) Tons of gear and sets typical of this kind of Action RPG style

5a) A Siege Editor for more fun after the exciting campaign!

6a) Deep and smart use of the mouse advantages

7, 8, 9, etc.) A lot of possible partners among more other things...

 

Dungeon Siege 3

1b) Predefined characters also with their own names (as JRPG games)

2b) Advancement much more simplified

3b) No group, no management

4b) Normal amount of gear more close to Classic RPG

5b) No editor, no mods, no fun...

6b) Clearly designed for consoles...

7, 8, 9, etc.) Where did you get the name “Lucas” for a main character anyway? among other things...

 

Before my first post I read some comments in line with the fact that every person who criticized Dungeon Siege 3 just only claims that it is NOT a Dungeon Siege game. By the other way, every person who liked Dungeon Siege 3 claims that they did NOT like previous Dungeon Siege games... So is really understandable why did you called Dungeon Siege “3” a game who did not pretend to be the third of that kind of games.

 

 

 

Did Obsidian make some public apologize to this great saga fans? (Like Blizzard about Diablo 3 or Bioware about Dragon Age 2). I’m asking because I’m reluctant to follow Project Eternity when the blood of Dungeon Siege is still fresh in your hands.

 

No, seriously, I would like to believe in your honesty.

Obsidian wanted to give it a Spin-Off title, but Square Enix decided to market it as DS3.

 

There is your easy answer. Also I don't think Obsidian should apologize at all. And DA2 or Diablo 3 aren't really comparable, because their problem wasn't that it suddenly was a different kind of game. (Diablo 3 wasn't suddenly party based for example.)

 

Also how is Lucas a bad name for a main charachter? That name got rich history.

Is good for me to know that, so Square Enix could be the real bad guy in this plot. I was also relieved that is recognized this game as a Spin-Off in this saga; did Obsidian declare that? And where? I like to read by myself.

I don't like it and that's enough for me. I simply want to name my character as previous Dungeon Siege games (also this is a basic thing in classic pen & paper role).

 

Thanks for the quick answer.
