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.

A Speed Slider has been added that allows the user to select the speed that the game plays out between ranges of 70% to 100%. It is accessed by hitting the escape button. There is a slider in the middle of the small menu that allows speeds to be switched.

Saw that info about the patch... does that mean the retail version still has a player character that moves at the speed of a tweaker on crack?

That was the main thing that turned me off in the demo. I felt like I was playing Nox, which was a POS in my opinion.

Why a player character would normally move at such a high rate of speed is beyond me. I'd like to see how fast they move with a haste spell or boots of speed on. They would be a blur and the combat would be even more chaotic(reads hard to click on enemies). No thx...

Sad thing is I was really looking forward to this one. Maybe after the next patch I will give it a try. Maybe...
