Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale Announced

Atari announces Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale, a Forgotten Realms RPG to be digitally distributed for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in Spring 2011. Here's word: "Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale centers on the desperate struggle to defeat the evil Rezlus and his Zhentarim in their attempt to invade and conquer the Dalelands. Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale is an engaging multi-player experience that introduces a riveting narrative and treacherous new characters. Players are charged with the task of restoring order to Nentir Vale by unlocking the secrets of the Mines of Tethyamar, defeating the evil within the treacherous Tower of the Void, leading to the final confrontation with Rezlus himself." An official product section for the game is already online, offering a launch trailer and more information.

"...is an engaging multi-player experience..." is where I lost my interest.

Atari could not make a decent game if their lives depended on it. Bar none, the worst developer in the business!

Atari is a publisher, not a developer. And they have published some good games. The Witcher and TDU come to mind.

My comment about Forgotten Realms is only about pre 4e Forgotten Realms.

No dice here for me

Any game in this type of genre that is also made for a console will suck and not have the depth I am looking for

pass

I'd definitely be up for a Temple of Elemental Evil remake, or something involving Iuz, or starting with White Plume Mountain, or...

Yeah, I'm a Greyhawk fanboi, I bluntly admit it.

Wtf is with Forgotten Realms?
Wtf is wrong with the standard Greyhawk world?
Wtf is going on in the heads of business minded developers?
This is retarded.

Ugh... fuck you, Atari.
No seriously, fuck you. Your license runs out soon and we'll all be better off for it.

Campaign setting aside, this looks really consoley and action-oriented (aka shitty). Sadly, I don't see how this could compare to the depth of any of the classic D&D games of the past from Bioware and Black Isle, or even Dragon Age. I'd love to be wrong though.

Forgotten Realms is the best campaign setting for D&D.

Forgotten Realms WAS the best campaign setting for D&D...until they took a giant diarrhea shit all over it and fast forwarded everything 100 years. I can't even stand reading the books anymore, and up to that date I had religiously read every single one of them.

Zhentarim, raiding the Dalelands. Sounds like it might be set in the prior time periods.

Bleh. No more Forgotten Realms, please. How about some more Planescape? Dark Sun? Eberron? I'd mention Gamma World too but the post-apocalyptic sci-fi setting is already taken. Anything is more interesting than the bog-standard Forgotten Realms setting, though.

And please... no more skeletons. Skeletons, rats and spiders should be banned from all forthcoming RPGs, unless the game does something interesting with them ala Planescape: Torment.

I was going to same the same about forgotten realms... Stick to what's tried and... moldy...

Yawn at D&D. You against the evil wizard/dragon... fucking please....

Why is this a D&D comment and not almost every fantasy game ever made?
