Viking Dev Diary #2

Viking Dev Diary #2

Sega released this second developer diary of Viking: Battle For Asgard, making that game look a tad more interesting than a mindless beat'em all game.

there are 2 games this reminds me of...the first being "rune : viking warlord" and the second being the very disney inspired "the mark of kri"

looks alright tho, doubt i'd pick it up however.

I seriously can't wait for this game.

Visually, it looks brilliant. Especially when you consider the proposed scale.

Like a lot of other games, i'd like a demo first. But even if they don't release one, I think i'd risk buying it anyway.

It's just so up my street - big battles, swords etc etc = good tiiiiiiiimes.

BIG SPOILER in the end: "... ends up being the savior of midgar". Now who would've expected that:P

Looks impressiv, very good!
Different game, but it reminds me of PRIMAL (does anybody remeber that cool game?).
Some levelparts and the athmosphere remind me of it, which is cool! Really looking forward for this game. Can't wait to slay some monsters with my sword ^^

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. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (4 Hours 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. (4 Hours 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. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (4 Hours ago)
