Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna in Fall

Explore Dungeon Siege Legends of Aranna This Fall is the press release announcing a release date for the upcoming Dungeon Siege add-on that was unveiled yesterday (making this the game's official, if low-key, announcement). The announcement is accompanied by three screenshots, and here's a bit of what it has to say:
Microsoft Game Studios today announced that the Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna expansion pack will be available in stores this November. Gamers will soon be drawn outside the original Kingdom of Ehb and into the tropical island of Aranna to solve an ancient mystery. The expansion pack to the award-winning RPG of 2002 unveils an all-new campaign that will challenge players to explore and fight their way through nine spectacular areas, including an expansive new jungle region, as they unravel the rich history and mystery of the world of Aranna.

Legends of Aranna will also introduce new spells and special over-the-top spell effects to combat fierce new creatures such as Clockwork Beasts and Doppelgangers. Those not content to play a standard farm girl or farm boy will be able to choose a new half-giant player character; and even use spells to transform into a wolf, lava monster or troll. Players will be able to collect rare and powerful treasures, including new consistent styles of armor sets and collectables. Also available is a new pack animal that will defend the player's treasure to the death.

i've heard that complaint a lot, and while it is true to an extent, it doesn't entirely take away from entertainment value! for example: movies (well, 99% of them) require no brain-power to enjoy, they are pure entertainment. i look at games like DS, NWN, and Diablo as interactive films. even more so now with the new 3D engines that allow seemless camera control (i map camera functions to wasd, like i would with an FPS). this ability to control the camera and main characters gives me the feeling of directing a film.

i guess it's all in what you're looking for. i go into a DS game not expecting to use my mind, or powers of strategy and planning, but to get immersed in a story taking place in a beautiful and imaginary world.
