Damn that looks good. 2014 is looking pretty good given how dry this year has been.

Sounds promising, but I'm a bit concerned that the reason not much has been revealed about the story is that there won't be much of a story to speak of. That's another thing that this RPG fanatic complains about- the shallow stories and lack of choices in many so-called "role-playing" games. RPGs should be about more than endless battles. It feels like the genre has been dumbed down to appeal to fans of the action genre. So we get crap like Bioware's conversation wheel. We can't have lots of dialogue choices because many gamers these days insist that every line must be voice-acted; otherwise you'd have to ::gasp:: actually read. We can't have choices with significant consequences / multiple story branches because then the game would be "too short".

The Witcher 2 balanced the various essential aspects of a true role-playing game nicely and I hope this is in a similar vein, rather than being yet another action game posing as a RPG.

So button-bashing is punished and patience rewarded. I don't really need to hear any more, I'm in!

davyd The story does look pretty promising, but very little was revealed to us, minus the whole premise of it. We do know that Harkyn has a plot tied to him.

That's the thing with these early demos, particularly with new IPs: story isn't the focal point. I don't expect this to be Witcher 3, mind you, but I'm really looking forward to learning more. The world looks pretty nice.

I'd say that this game doesn't look/feel like Dark Souls 2, either. It feels pretty unique so far, and that's what I'm excited about.
