Good to see that they're going to release a demo; I'll be giving that a try at the very least.

I will give this demo a try too.

I'll wait for some reviews and give the demo a go i think. It looks kinda shit but if it plays well it might be worth a go. Looks promising enough conceptally if nothing else.

I want this game. But I'll guess I will not pre-order until I have tried the demo.

.... It looks kinda shit but if it plays well it might be worth a go. .
I have been following this game for awhile. I was intrigued by your sh* comment. Do you mean the graphics, world gameplay? I believe the cartoony look is to perhaps snag the WOW enthusiast and ensure a non-jarring transition to MMO graphics which I guess will share the same engine and perhaps same locations.

So far everything shown looks great, this will satisfy the loot hoarder and the combat looks like it will be fun. Basically the impression I have from all the preview footage is that this will succeed at being a better Fable than Fable with all the perks of diablo-style loot, and a crafting system too.

I would like at least the ability to adventure with at least 1 co-op slot, but I guess that they are omitting that based on the possibility that it will detract from the focused story telling of RA Salvatore .

I can not understand why this is not an mmo. But.. Ok. Maybe I'll try it too.

I meant graphically, yes. Even if they want to go for a WoW look it still looks very boxy and empty.

The game itself seems good but it cannot stand the visuals, a dated graphics engine and a visual style that is more than a bit close to wow and that is not a good thing imo.

Though I can understand your dislike for this particular graphics style(Im not a fan either) IMO is not that bad to call it "shit"

All those effects and stuff make it nice looking.

Again, i don't mind the style, the game just looks empty and boxy. The world just doesn't feel alive at all.

    jmd749 already own D2 and visit the dev's site Nordic Games, they did not make this clear on Steam and many loyal fan repurchased the Deathinitive edition unnecessarily. Very shady stuff like this annoys me. (9 Hours ago)

    jmd749 @KORNdog: Dishonored and DMC do not have remastered editions on PC and that's the point there's no need. Darksiders 2 dethinitive edition for e.g released on steam only to be a free upgrade when you.. (9 Hours ago)
