Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Live Stream

Senior editor Kevin VanOrd shares some live gameplay of Kingdoms of Amalur for the PC.

Hi all! Electronic Arts tried valiantly to get us working PC code for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning in advance. Sadly, the stars didn't align properly, so we had to wait for the game's full release to start playing that particular version.

Once I started playing, I thought I'd share the experience as I prepared to review Kingdoms of Amalur on the PC. Curious about how this version looks and controls? Still on the fence and wondering if this action role-playing game is for you? I played the game live on February 7, 2012 from 5 PM to 10 PM for everyone to check out.

Sadly, you missed the fun. Or at least, you missed it live! But fear not: here is a replay for your enjoyment!

I like the game but I hate that I have to do 7-8 keyboard clicks to change items out. Why can´t we get a pc ui and not this console crap ?

@Kevin-V I'm fairly satisfied with the bindings for the kb&m so far, but I haven't gotten as far into the game as you did. I'm just 5 hours in right now. I opened a thread in PC Games btw, so everyone knows to give you major props for this article & video.:)

@topsemag55 -- Yeah, I mentioned that you can use Q or the mousewheel at some point. With a controller, you just use two different buttons without any switching mechanic.

Chop, hack, slash, ultra kill death move, collect, chat... repeat. Exciting.

@Kevin-V, you can switch weapons by pressing "Q". Just now heard your comment about switching weapons.

if you like ZELDA you might like this...Not because of fairies. but the combat is really similar with some added stuff in it and its a bit childish too.
