Dungeon Siege 3 Announced

Square Enix announces Dungeon Siege 3, a continuation of the action/RPG franchise launched by Gas Powered Games, and though a third installment in the series was first hinted at almost exactly two years ago by Chris Taylor of Gas Powered Games, development of the sequel is actually being handled by Obsidian Entertainment (with "input" from GPG). This will bring the Dungeon Siege series to consoles for the first time, and will also include cooperative multiplayer support, though no projected release date is offered at this time. Here are some screenshots, and here's the feature list:

  • For the first time, play DUNGEON SIEGE on high-def consoles
  • Players will be able to adventure by themselves or with friends in co-op multiplayer
  • Uncover a deep story that only Square Enix and Obsidian Entertainment can deliver
  • Pick from unique and highly customizable character classes with a wide range of abilities to choose from
  • Recruit companions with unique personalities, abilities and views on the world around them
  • Players will have weighty decisions to make that will impact their alliances, enemies and the culmination of the story

Yea Space Siege sucked balls frankly. It was fun for the first hour.. but got boring 'very fast.'

I enjoyed DS1 a lot, it was amongst the first '3d Diablo clones' as well as one of the first 'open world' games without any zoning. Of course before long you realized they were only able to pull this off because almost the entire game was a big pipe with only a single path.

DS2 was fun as well IMHO. The beginning of the game was rough and the voice work and production values sucked balls, but it was still a fun game, the pets, the powers and combat was pretty sweet, though the end of the game was pretty average and was clearly hurried, it boiled down to just slaughtering hundreds of monsters.

So I'm mildly looking forward to DS3. I'm playing alpha protocol right now from them and while the reviews are average at best, I'm having a lot of fun playing it. It's no shooter and light RP but the story-line and the NPCs are great and once you get some skills spent and learn some cool tricks the combat is enjoyable too. I'm playing a recruit that is specialized in stealth, pistols and martial arts, quite fun. I was a little worried when buying it because of the reviews but IMHO, if you don't expect the quality of ME2 and don't expect a shooter, it's a rather enjoyable game. You'll also notice that the PC review average on Metacritic is a full 10 points higher, it's clearly not a console style game. It requires patience and actual thought to play well.

I've heard a lot of complaints about the combat that weapons are wildly inaccurate, etc but I'm fine with it because I realize being skill based (like Vampire: Bloodlines was) that once you pump some points into something it becomes much more stable and powerful.

I'm not saying it's an amazing game, but it certainly is better than it gets credit for, and that makes me hope D3 will be very solid too.
