Ships Ahoy: Lionheart

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader Ships to Retail (thanks Frans) is the press release with word that this SPECIAL-system alternate-reality RPG from Reflexive and Black Isle is shipping to stores. Here's a bit:
In the game, players can control the entire party themselves or join forces with up to four gamers for mission-based cooperative multi-play. As they progress through the realm of Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader, players will be able to arm themselves with hundreds of melee weapons and 60 devastating spell attacks as they attempt to turn the tide against a savage onslaught of otherworldly creatures. Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader also features the SPECIAL RPG system for character advancement previously found in the Fallout® series of PC games.

Black Isle = Bioware wannabies

HAHA, You made me laugh! Oh shit, you were serious.

1. Lionheart was made by Reflexive Entertainment, Black Isle/IPLY is the publisher.

2. Black Isle has made Fallout 1/2 and Plancescape: Torment. Bioware only wishes they could do something that good.

3. Baldur's Gate 1, think back and tell me how much roleplaying there was. There wasn't much. Mostly just non-linear hack and slash. Statements that BG was anything more is looking at the game through rose-colored glasses.

4. Baldur's Gate 2, while improving the gameplay Bioware also made 2/3 of the game entirely linear. Why must the early plot revolve around me saving Imoen? I never liked the bitch anyway.

5. Throne of Bhaal, completely linear hack and slash. Maybe 5 subquests in the entire game. Dialogue trees where you have 5 possible responses but each one gets the same answer from the NPC.

6. NWN, Worst. Single-player. CRPG. Ever. Well maybe not, but the OC was incredibly bland and even made BG look like a masterpiece in comparison.

7. Shadows of Undrentide, improved on the NWN OC in some areas but was a complete rush job with the latter half of the campaign being even worse than the OC.

8. KotoR, from what I've heard it's quite good. Maybe Bioware is starting to live up to it's rep.
