PostSubject: Dungeon Siege III+Anyone here like roguelikes?   Fri Apr 15, 2011 1:56 am

So, I've got some cash suddenly and I've been eyeing Dungeon Siege III due to Steam shoving their shiny pre-order offer in my face. It's pre-order, get the first two games free. They say that the I & II provided are single player versions, but I've read that you can make MP work via fake-LAN with Hamachi and stuff.

I don't know much about the game other than how shiny it looks, and that the experience is likely to be close to Diablo, which is good news due to Diablo III getting super pushed back.

Some info: http://store.steampowered.com/app/39160/

But yar, anyone have opinions on the game and perhaps series as a whole? I've heard good things, but at the moment I'm not sure if it's worth that $50 they charge. Though on the flipside if I don't get DSIII I'm probably going to end up gambling the money for more Patty/Renny Lop rolls. >_>


And oh, anyone here care for roguelikes? (/currently prodding Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, Gearhead, and Elona while bored, and yes I understand that Elona doesn't -really- count as one)

I've played some of DS II.

The character creation is gender/race (some races get initial bonus in certain stat).
The voice acting for some characters is terrible and the plot isn't the great deal, but at least is better than the plot of Doom. The world, however, is very detailed and have a great background history.
The combat is good. You can issue some orders to your party with the rampage mode (they dedicate themselves either to use spells, attack or heal on their own) or mirror mode (they do the same you do) and the pause feature is a great help at times.
The character growth is different from most rpgs, and you probably can turn your character into anything you want, but the equipment is very specific (for example only pure melee specialist may use heavy armor and combat mages get to use robes) so the game eventually requires you to focus on some area.
Most quests are either "kill this dude", "fetch this and that" or "go to this place".

In short if you really liked Diablo you might want to check these.
