Path of Exile - Now Playing
- Jan 17, 2013
Chris Wilson joins GameSpot's Kevin VanOrd to show some new gameplay for Path of Exile.
i think it's a great game. But the bad thing is after dying I have to run though 1 or 2 whole zones to get back. Kind of frustrating really. And some of the mazes are so big, by the time i reach the other side, I forget where I'm going LOL. The camera angle shows very little terrain and I get tunnel vision after a while
I love people's reaction to the skill tree (forest) when they see it for the first time. Never gets old!
I can't think of a game in the last ten years that brought so many innovations to a genre as this. They might not be apparent at first sight but the potion system alone is awesome and really helps formulate your strategy. The currency system is something I'm now dearly missing in any other ARPG where 99.9% of the drops are trash, while here, I'm even still looking at white items since they might be fabricated into whatever I need through the use of orbs. The leagues keep me testing new quirky builds and usually draw a nice crowd, especially since they are hardcore, so global chat is often bearable or even interesting.
The game is actually pretty decent. The Skill tree is scary, but the amount of work put into it by the development team is staggering. It's Diablo 2.5, I've played a Witch and Marauder and had fun.
Chris Wilson FTW, When I find good loot = chris wilson'd, when I'm dying or find bad loot = Jay Wilson'd.
@DarthStryphe max lvl is 100
@WizardZedd yes, you get respec points through quests, but you cant respec all of your points
if this diablo killer had come out a few years back i woudve been predy excited about that but with Torchlight 2 out this just doesnt cut it for me at least for now
marauder ( full on streinght, tank and stuf like that ), archer ( dex, range dps ), witch ( mage ), shadow ( magic + dex ), duelist ( streinght + dex ) and i think templar ( streinght + magic )
