holy f**king ballbags, I mean, it looks like a cool game and that's fine, But you've gotta be crazy if you don't think this is a rip-off of practically every blizzard game out to date. (more specifically World of Warcraft + Diablo)

@svinjche "For real, game is good but its almost 100% copy-paste of diablo " The maker of this game, was the makers of Diablo, so its kinda faulty to call it a rip-off or clone or whatever...i agree on the rest you said tho ;)

It looks pretty good. Though the story doesn't sound too awesome.

Looks cool, must give the demo a try, since Diablo III won't be appearing any time soon.

Its just another Fate game. No problem with that, fates a good game. But lets not pretend this is proper title, much like fate its just a time filling fun game while we wait for the biggies (Diablo 3 etc) to come out. It seems to use the same kind of engine as Fate but with slightly better graphics and better dungeon generating tools which I would take a guess at coming from diablo 3 or at least being related to.

GREAT game indeed, only flaw is the loading times And as you can actually see at 02:22 to 02:35 (where you here the sound when the loading is finished) it dont matter what system you have..

It's worth $20 for a game that runs on my (old) laptop and can be played in 1-2 hour chunks while commuting/etc. You can quit(save) anywhere, and the gameplay is easy to get into and very addictive. There are plenty of $50-60 games that aren't nearly as fun or as appealing, even when they push all of the state-of-the-art, post-apocalyptic, photorealistic buttons that make for great hype. Not to mention that the soon-to-be-release editor will extend replay value by a lot, especially if it attracts a good modding community. Kind of refreshing in an era that's leaning towards black-box console mentality (e.g. MW2).

@Gibbersom What plot were you expecting from a 20 dollar game that will become a F2P MMO?

Great, way to completely reveal the plot...

I don't know. The price is certainly right, but with Dragon Age coming out only about a week afterwards, is it even worth it? This game looks pretty, but all I really see is a traditional hack and slash. One that I can't even play co-op, which is a big factor for me. I think I'll wait for the review, if it even gets one. GameSpot has been pretty horrible about reviewing RPG games the last couple of months(Aion, Risen, etc...)

I like how it's coming out single player first, then being made into an mmo, interesting concept. The interface looks sick!!!

I can't wait, a cross between diablo 3 and warcraft 3, made by team of diablo I and diablo II :D

Action RPG and MMO ? Hmm, interesting and looks great imo.

I doubt a co-op mode ever gets put into the game. Mod teams would have to finish that before they got the MMO part of the game out. Still looks fun. I enjoyed Fate quite a bit but it was a little TOO free-form for me. Having set classes will probably up the replay factor for me.

@JTRS They aren't going to put in co-op unfortunately. Someone might be able to mod it in but I doubt that will be possible either.

Looks like a really good game for the price, something to scratch that itch till diablo 3. Hope the put in co-op though before their mmo idea
