Dungeon Siege III
I played the demo for the game and put money down at Gamestop right away. I'm normally into games like Assassin's Creed, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Brink, but the video looks cool and I really enjoyed the demo for Dungeon Siege III. I'm excited for the release date, but I'm hoping it doesn't get pushed back yet again. I like that you can choose between two camera views and that the dialouge reminds me of Mass Effect 2. You can choose how you want to talk to the person. If you want to know alot of information, you can ask a number of questions that will all be answered. If you just want to search for treasure and better weapons and armor, you can skip the questions. The fighting engine is also pretty cool. You can slice through your enemy quickly or deliver a punishing blow in a different stance, like a big leaguer's power swing. If several enemies are attacking, you can block their attempts and minimize damage. I can't wait for this one to come out. BTW, if you're thinking about getting it, if you pre-order you get boosted armor and weapons.
I played the first Dungeon Siege and liked it a lot. One thing on this game that I am looking forward to is the ability to play multiplayer without going online. I've always loved playing through action-RPG style games with friends(Baldur's Gate series being an excellent example). A lot of newer games are not set-up for this style gameplay, preferring to go single player only in offline, and multiplayer only available through online. Some of us like to play multiplayer with a room mate, or have friends come over to our house to play the game, and I appreciate the fact that they've incorporated that into this game. All-in-all, the game looks great and I can't wait for it to come out!
I have the Duneon Seige Series for my pc visually its graphics were ok but not spectacular. Ther gameplay and story is what drew me in. This game looks like it will have the total package and will be pleasing on my eyes as well. Also with the buzz of offline multiplayer I can add more pleasure to my entertainment. My girlfriend is also a gamer and we enjoy play titles such as Baldur's Gate and the champions series together. I like the fact that there are a few that are bringing back the add a friend option, So this will definately be a must buy for me. Honestly if you've never tried this type of game or just this title check this one out im sure it will be worth it.
Where's the Dungeon Sieging at?
Wow. That is about all I can say to Square-Enix right now. How many flops are they going to keep delving out until the go bankrupt? There are no set items. It does have an auto-save feature that activates less than 10 times throughout the entire game. Is it to hard to write in a code where it saves every 15 minutes or so? The only game whose gotten it right so far is Two Worlds 2. There is no playthrough a second time with the same character. It seems like Square-Enix decided to rush out a Diablo-esque style game before Diablo 3 came out. I don't know. I'm tired of going on the faults of the game because there are plenty more. I keep getting excited for new games coming out to have them end up being the garbage that they are. A few years ago, you couldn't pick up a game without being amazed at everything in it. Now, it seems that the only original ideas are what sqeual can we do this time. Let's see if any new games coming out will stand up to the classics.
Great looking, classic gameplay.
While I have never played a Dungeon Siege game myself I am a huge fan of the gameplay style that the series uses. I am planning on picking up this game on the day it comes out myself, after looking over various previews and videos of the game in action and it's style I'm psyched to finally see a high quality game of this type come to the consoles. If you are into hack-n-slash games, such as Diablo or its many contemporaries then I would encourage you to look into this game, as it looks to be incredible. While everyone is touting the offline & online multiplayer elements you should also be aware that the game is 100% playable in single player as well.
This game is so unfairly underated all because of suckish gamers. The fact is, its a must have game and it is that fun. I can prove that this game is awesome because I have beaten it and I still can't get enough. There is alot of hype for Diablo 3 and this game is a perfect alternative and may be better. It is so easy to fail at a game and then give it a poor review just because everyone else did. The price went down so get it. I am really sick of people pointing out the bad when there is only one and the great parts about the game out weighs it by a mile. Who's with me on this?
Good old days...
I use to play Dark Alliance: Baldur's Gate with my son on the PS2 all the time and have been waiting for something like this on the PS3. Finding the weapon racks and gold pieces in barrels remind of that game. Graphics are not the best but good, controls are easy to learn, replay value is good to the extent that you can replay trying each of the four characters. All in all a good casual co-op hack and slash game.
This is going to be awesome. I have been a huge fan of the previous games on PC, and think its going to make a great system game. From what I heard, its not the same company making this game, but hopefully they will stick to the original gameplay ideas that made this game famous for, and even more importantly the multiplayer! (Preferrably local system or network play) I also want to add "Copy Cat" is probably not the best term to use, since this gameplay concept was also in the original version of Dungeon Siege released in 2002 and Dungeon Siege 2 released in 2005, dating prior to Dragon Age released in what, 2009? Not to mention 100% of games in some way, copy an idea from another game.
I have never played any of these games but I am really looking forward to this game. One of the few games that really take advantage of blurays' disc space. The look of this game would be well worth it.
under rated by many
Dungeon siege 3 has been under rated by many people, including ign, who gave it a 6.5. Thats outrage. Gameplay is awesome, graphics are great. The only downfall is the online co-op gameplay. When you join someone else in co-op, your stats and weapons, etc. do not carry over. The only way to do co-op and get stats, is for people to join your game. Even so i still love this game.
