News Comments > Dungeon Siege III Demo Next Month
8. Re: Dungeon Siege III Demo Next Month May 23, 2011, 19:36 Esoteric
 
They've already stated that there's little doubt the game (Grim Dawn) will be released. They're not really looking for a publisher, they don't mind being indie. And if they do get an offer from a publisher, they said they want to retain a lot of rights. If it does well enough, there will be content patches and expansions, too.

EDIT: Actually just found this, posted today:

"Unless things change and we end up with some sort of funding, which we're not actively looking for at this time (deals we've explored in the past just had way too much rape), we might decide to go sort of "Minecraft style" with our initial releases. That is to say, we want to get something playable out as soon as we can that is fun to play but possibly very limited in terms of the amount of content and features. One idea we've discussed is releasing a sort of "survival mode" so that fans could experience the combat, character development, and item collection that exists currently while we continue to work on the quests / world / additional content and features.

I think being such a small team, it seems like it could work out well to just get something out to you guys and then work on continually expanding and improving it."

I'll have to check out that Daggerdale. Will there be a demo for that? I'm really looking forward to Grim Dawn, Torchlight 2, and of course Diablo III, if I'm still alive.

News Comments > Free RIFT Character Transfers Coming
6. Re: Free RIFT Character Transfers Coming May 23, 2011, 14:07 Esoteric
 
I think Rift is doing pretty well population-wise, it's just that players naturally move towards really populated servers, and over time this causes dead servers. Even WOW has some pretty dead servers, but it's not as much of a problem because they have cross server looking for group tool for dungeons. Rift has same server LFG tool (for now), but also Rift events require a decent population on that particular server. That's the crux of the problem.

So far the dev team has been pretty impressive both in the speed and content of the patches. Adding character transfers for free instead of charging for it (like most MMOs do) is pretty nice.

My girlfriend and I are on Faeblight (Guardian) which is a very populated RP server, so the only way the transfer will effect us is that I think we'll start to see queues because people flock to already well-populated servers.

At least there will be a demo, I'll give it a try. I don't have much hope for the game, even though I'm an action RPG fan in general.

Netflix is awesome. We stream more than we get mailed. I can't believe it's still so cheap for how much we get from it. I'm definitely on their side when it comes to ISPs being assholes. Definitely needs to be more open competition in the ISP market. They should be competing for unlimited caps at cheaper prices instead of limited caps at more expensive prices.

I still really enjoy playing TF2 (usually play payload).

Hopefully we'll get to see the winning submissions, they should be pretty entertaining. Funny shit happens all the time in that game.

LOTRO is a very nice, polished MMO that's easy to get into and has a low price barrier. And it's still one of the best looking MMOs, at least landscape-wise.

Only played D&D in beta, so can't say much about it.

Yeah, when I was coin-locked, it took me literally 20 SECONDS to alt-tab, go to e-mail, copy code, back to game, control-v, unlocked. That's hardly a hassle.

Does it still coin lock you after you put in the code and log in again? It coin locked everyone the first time the patch went out, it was supposed to.

You don't expect them to change the classes, ever? That's just silly. While they said they're not going to try for perfect balance in the sandbox class system, they are going to watch the boundaries. If one soul makes all other souls obsolete, that's not very fun, and steps should be taken to either bring other souls up or the one soul in line with others.
