That video looked quite good, its weird how this game can look good sometimes and really terrible at others.

I tried the PC demo a couple of weeks back and to be honest I wasn't that impressed by it. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, it's just that it doesn't do anything especially well and it feels, well, a bit uninspired. The level in the demo wasn't that interesting to explore and I soon got tired of constantly fighting off the same type of enemies every few steps.

It could work better on the consoles but, for me, it lacked the compulsive addictive factor of the old Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance games on the last gen consoles and that's what this game reminded me of.

PC version is getting a PhysX patch some time soon, if you have the hardware (ie. a decent nVidia card) then I would look at getting that version.

Ditto.

I wanted to like it, but just couldn't get into it. Perhaps I would feel more comfortable with it on a console, but unless they put up a demo for it, I doubt I'll be given it a try.

Ugh. This game's engine is so ugly. Its not bad tech wise, but it looks like someone just learned how to do modeling and stuff. The Lighting is omnipresent, the shaders are terrible, etc etc etc.

those are some very clunky turning animations!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (1 Hour ago)
