Gamersyde Diaries: Dark Messiah Elements

Gamersyde Diaries: Dark Messiah Elements

After our impressions of Haze a couple of days ago, here is our new GSD focused on Dark Messiah of Might & Magic: Elements. As you'll see in our feature, the game was still under heavy construction. On the other hand, the sword combat already looked great and didn't seem to have suffered during the port, so there's no need to worry. We hope to see the game in a better shape very soon.
Erratum: Dark Messiah Elements is developed by Ubisoft Annecy, and Pierre-Olivier Clément is game designer at Ubisoft Annecy. No Arkane Studio there.

I enjoyed this game on PC, but it was pretty buggy when it was first released. I really hope it's not the case when this version is released. Snoopers, do you know if there will be anything extra added in to the game, or are the answers in the video (downloading now, btw)?

Alot of answers in the video. To be short: YES. A lot of new multiplayer stuff, and you'll have an extra 2 hours of solo gameplay, new weapons etc...

I only played demo on PC, but really enjoyed, although never bought it. Might get it for the 360 :D

I borrowed it for the PC from my brother. I couldn't actually get past a certain level because it would crash no matter what version I used! Fingers crossed the 360 version works.

I can't see that happening on the 360 version mate >_< Otherwise they would be in for a bumpy ride :D

game had a lot of promise and was too buggy, lets hope that those bugs are all worked out and this is a great game for 360

So is this the same game that came out on PC but with extra content ? If so...cool. Never got to play this one.

Edit. Should have waited til I actually watched the video.

if that was made about the graphics, just wait and see. The pc version looked really nice and this one will too at launch

as with half life 2, the physics based gameplay made this game, it got some pretty poor reviews becasue i think a lot of people where expecting oblivion 2. when in fact it has more in common with a FPS then an RPG. its linear, its fast paced, and imo, its just fun. definate buy for me. unless they really mess something up. or its just a poor, unoptimised port.

to those that have played is it better than oblivion

completely different games. just becasue they artistically look similar, doesnt mean their anything alike gameplay wise (another example would be overlord and fable, visually similar, completely different in gameplay). if you expect oblivion 2, or even compare this to oblivion your gonna be dissapinted. mesiah is a FPS at heart. only instead of melee combat they have swords and instead of guns they have magic and arrows.

I've seen the PC version in action and thought it looked great. The graphics in this video however look pretty bad I'm not going to lie. It really does look like an xbox 1 game save the HDR lighting.

What's up?

    GriftGFX I'm really looking forward to a few things in development.. and we could survive off of what we have for a long time. (53 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX All things considered FPS as a PVP genre is the healthiest it's been in years and years. Pretty cool really. We've got options as consumers and things are still looking positive going forward. (59 minutes ago)
