News Comments > Disciples III: Renaissance Demo
9. Re: Disciples III: Renaissance Demo Jul 8, 2010, 18:03 Coolone
 
Ok here are my initial impressions. It should be noted that I've been a fanatical fan of Disciples 2 since that was released, so this title has a LOT to live up to for me.

The graphics are pretty good. The devs did a decent job of trying to make this game have 3d versions of the original artworks that the earlier games have. The music was surprisingly better than I thought it would be, none of this cheery nonsense you see in a lot of other fantasy settings. The fact that this game doesn't have the dwarves or undead is just criminal, so that's a massive strike against it.

The gameplay feels a little clunky and linear. I'll need to play it more to see if I just need to get used to it, or if it just sucks. The recruitment seems pretty standard fare compared to D2, which is not a bad thing. City development was pretty easy as well, allowing easily accessible information on capital upgrades and development. The combat was a little confusing, I'll need to get into more battles to figure out whats going on there.

Cliffs: While not quite a true Disciples game, it's the closest you're going to get for a long, long time.

A word of warning to anyone who uses dual monitors. You won't be able to scroll with the mouse as it will just go into your second monitor. To get around this, just use WASD, as those buttons scroll (faster than the mouse IMO) just as well.

EDIT: Okay I really wish the characters would shut up during combat. I swear they spend more time talking than they do fighting.

I'd be hating life if I had a bandwidth cap. Maybe you could have a friend grab it and burn it to a DVD for you?

I love Disciples 2, but I'm a little sceptical of this one, given that it's a different dev, and they changed a TON of stuff core to the game

What I want to see is: "Vampire: The Masquerade - 75% off at Steam".

They had a big sale on it a while ago on gog.com

Why? They've given the pro-gamers exactly what they wanted. LAN play. So state again why you're hating on this?

Because they're not giving us paying customers exactly what we wanted. LAN play.

In GW1 it was a problem loosing contact with friends / former partymembers because of different advancement rates through the storyline. Wouldn't that be compounded by having friends branching of on different paths in GW2 ?

I would assume that if that paths are dynamic, it would all work out together?

Dune II was freaking amazing for the time. Subspace was also a blast to play (no pun intended)

I've heard rumors that Blizzard has almost no participation on the beta forums and close to no communication with the beta testers. True or just plain false?

Last I checked they get a few pages worth of threads every day on the SC2 beta forums.

What Blizzard is mainly doing right now is trying to simulate a launch scenario by stress-testing Battle.net for the coming onslaught.

Back to what was being discussed earlier, I got to play around on Trackmania with Frans a minute ago. He has some pretty good times on those tracks

Here's what is going to end up happening. They're going to release the second encounter in HD as well, and then at some point, steam is going to have a combo deal for a stupidly low price, THEN I'll get it.

Yeah, I'm a cheapskate.
