Looks like one of those "middle" games Cliffy B was talking about...

OH damn it, I was hoping for a 2011 release but oh well, looks nice the art atyle, it suits really wel the universe they created.

I think this game will be huge!

Looks great and all, but for next year mean we wont be getting any gameplay footage anytime soon.

But I will wait for sure, the art reminds me of WoW a bit.

Can't say I'm particularly fond of the art style - I like my fantasy gritty and realistic, but this is far too cartoonish for me... almost to the extent whereby it's a complete turn off.

Still, with the talent on board this is bound to be one to watch out for.

What did he mean by that exactly?

Kinda reminds me of Darksiders but not that exagerated.

It's not quite WoW cartoonish... Torchlight was my first impression.

Even Torchlight is cartoony.

I would go with Darksiders actually.

He was saying something about a middle-of-the-road game won't make it now-a-days. That games today that work are either AAA big budget, or low-budget Indie games. Basically what we all know already, lol. I call it a "middle" game because it doesn't look very special, but it might be Ok...

stylistically i already dont like it. it's not quite what i'd call cartoony (say, deathspank) but it isnt exactly gritty and realistic either. just sort of sits there in the middle looking completely "meh"

could be a good game tho, we'll see.

You should probably read up on who's involved in this before dismissing it as a "middle" game...

I agree reminds me of Darksiders.

I think it's entirely because of the added fidelity. The grass is fucking identical beyond resolution, the game looks completely and entirely like WoW.
Which I honestly kinda like.
Also this has gotten some good word of mouth so I'm interested.

So because McFarline and Salvatore are involved automatically makes me care? I've never read Salvatore's stuff, but I know he's popular in High Fantasy circles so there might be an interesting story. Hardly guaranteed as being a good novel writer doesn't always equal good game writing.
McFarline makes good toys, but has yet to make anything worth talking about on the game front. I've never been a fan of his artistic style- Having that Capullo(?) guy take over drawing spawn forever-ago was a boon to the comic. Of course, I stopped paying attention to Spawn when I was in high-school...

  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (6 Hours ago)
