I don't get this game. Why is everyone so excited about it?

Is it turn based?

I haven't gotten to any monsters, mostly because I can't figure out how the mage works with his spells.

If its real time, how do I command 4 characters to do something without it being turn based?

I'm so very confused about this game.

Did you try the tutorial in the menu?

Not that I doubt Ill love this game and think it was worth every penny. But I just realized its cheaper on Steam and I would have saved a few bucks had I not pre-ordered directly from them. I feel kind of duped.

=\

You also got a DRM free version if you pre-ordered directly from the website...So you actually got 2 copies for $12.


Hmmmmmm. I did not consider that. Good point. I just checked the link from the registration email and sure enough there it is. Thanks for the reminder. =)

Yeah, it's perfectly understandable that that wouldn't make the best first impression with potential customers.

I bought it off their web site and assumed it would be the same as the steam price...

Oh well, something to look out for next time...

Right. You get me. And I agree. Lesson learned. I bought off their site too paying through humble bundle. Either way... my weekend will now be filled with dungeon crawling. Ahhhhhh it's been years since a nice dungeon crawler like this.

Well, if it makes you feel any better at all, those dollars went directly to the dev.

Oh I even emailed them directly and mentioned this. But I told them I don't want the difference. I just wanted them to know that seems like a stinker kind of thing to do. Even though I haven't played yet, I again will state it was probably worth every dollar. And from the few reactions here so far I seem to be right.

I am very happy some one made a game like this. I just hope in the future they re-evaluate these kinds of promotions.

I still can't wait to get home and play it. And awesome sauce they get every dollar. Indie Devs for the win. =)

Pfft. Lets just label everything that's linked to everything so were all warned about everything being linked to everything. Especially on unfounded statistics.

Like any serious gamers really care what movie critics think of "games". It's not their specialty. Stick to movies. Some people just don't like games, and don't get into them.

This would be awesome if it does get ported well. That game is one of the main reasons I bought a Dreamcast.

So... do we still think they are not trying to compete with Steam? Why wouldn't some one want to compete? The digital download service is a growing market with lots of money to be made.

2 minutes on preparing to load eh? Older machine maybe? Mine is a bit older and I don't even wait that long.
Actually, I've had similar delays myself. It might be related to the internet connection but if it doesn't launch instantly I've had quite a few occasions where it can take 30+ secs. Whereas if I simply restart the Steam client in Offline mode it launches instantly. If it's instant in Offline mode it should be the same online.

Huh sounds logical. Maybe I have just been assimilated to my wait time and don't notice it as much heh.

I wish review sites would use a bit of muscle to get Valve to improve Steam.
Nothing pisses me off more that sitting down to play a singleplayer game than Steam popping saying 'preparing to launch ...' for 2 minutes before either running the damn game or failing!! ( it's about 50/50 these days )
I wouldn't mind but the two most common games I play I used the pirate-try-and-buy approach(since demos where not available) - both games I loved so bought the legal versions at a retail store - now I have suffer steam!!!
Developers wonder why people pirate games, here's a clue:

Illegal version, download, unzip, doubleclick game.exe - play

Legal version, insert DVD, hit install, wait for steam to sign in ( two attempts ) then steam starts downloading FULL game, despite the fact I have the full game on a shiny new legal DVD in the drive!, cancel steam download, google "how the 'f*&k do I install X game from DVD rather than Steam trying to download' close down steam, open a DOS prompt, run steam with some long command line args, wait for install to finish, close down steam, re load steam normally, sign in again( busy please try in a couple of minutes ) F&*K You steam - try again, I'm in, Game updating, 30mins later, game ready, click play game, 'preparing to launch game' 2 minutes later game starts, hit Play on games own launcher, play game ...
PS: I didn't make any of that up, that's what actually happened a couple of weeks ago when I bought Skyrim on DVD from my local super market. Other game was not quiet as bad, at least it installed from DVD into steam.


2 minutes on preparing to load eh? Older machine maybe? Mine is a bit older and I don't even wait that long.

I can't even remember the last time I bought a game at the store and used a DVD / CD. However, those who do have to go through that bit of tripe with the steam download / install on a disk sounds frustrating.

You won't beat steam EA. Give it up.

Gawd. They're not even trying to. Anyone with half a brain, i.e. not you, should be able to tell that EA's Origin service is not even trying to compete with Steam. EA is only using Origin to control their own content on the PC platform. They do not even intend to sell other publisher's games or broaden the spectrum of Origin beyond their own stuff.
I'm also sure that they don't really give much of a fuck about Steam or their own Origin service even. It's a fun little side endeavor for them. They are making 90%+ of their revenue on the consoles. If you think they really care about Steam you had better think again.


I love the name callers here. Always a great way to get a point across.

People who work overtime without getting paid for it, are stupid.

By your logic, all those movies you like watching with their cool effects, all those games you like playing, the majority of visual media you see - it's all created by stupid people.
