    I am glad they listen to that one ArchAngel's post on RPGWatch:

    P.S.
    Does it mean that RPGWatch is a more prestigious rpgsite than Codex?

    If by prestigious you mean licking devs brown hole and not telling them the truth about their products,which seems to be an abomination,yes rpgwatch is a pretty damn prestigious site.

    If they decide to release this game as it is, this is going to biggest RPG disaster yet. SCL seems like a 10/10 game compared to current state of this game.

    The game will get to compete with such prestigious titles like Legends of Dawn for lowest rated Steam games.

    All this makes me wonder just how far from completion Chaos Chronicles actually was. HobGoblin42 ?

    I think playing ToEE should be mandatory to anyone that wants to make a crpg. At least the battle system will be great, no matter how shit the story is(which is quite normal).
    ToEE because no way those fags would want to play old crpg, they hardly play anything that was released in the last decade that was not done by bioware and bethesda.

    Sounds like Fantasy X-com in a dungeon. I'm fine with that. This is not an RPG though.

    Again, in X-com you are randomly assigned premade characters of which you can only edit their names. And you can add on necessary equipment. The concept in and of itself is fine. It plays fine and can still be fun. But, it is NOT an rpg.

    If you can get past that I think there's fun to be had here if the combat is good.

    Combat focused adventures like Dark Sun: Shattered Lands, Temple of Elemental Evil and Knights of the Chalice are excellent computer role-playing games.

    Unfortunately, Demons Age is not a role-playing game.

    But X-com does not revolve around the use of feats and spells assigned to your characters. Playing with whatever is thrown at you might be fine indeed, but will the tactical combat be strong enough to carry an otherwise weak game?
    X-com is about managing squads of 10+ soldiers who die a lot. That is a very good reason to avoid spending time allocating skill points for them. How many will Chaos Chronicles have? How often are they expected to die?

    Yah at best it seems like a party-based tactical game in a fantasy setting and marketed as an RPG. If combat is fun, I'll prolly give it a go. I just will keep in mind it's not an rpg.

    X-com had a variety of stats that would increase with each level in ways you had not control over. Whocares if they are called feats,s kills, or whatever? It was fun due to the tactical as well as strategic layers. Oh, and the atmosphere.

    All I'm saying is that ppl IIT are treating that as "no way it's fun!!", when really that's not true. It can totally be fun, and there's no way to know for sure until I see more. But again, it's not an RPG of course.

    People are saying it's not fun because it was supposed to be an rpg. No one plays Doom and complains your character is premade, because that's not what they were expecting at all.

    I don't even think the devs know what this game is supposed to be or who it's supposed to be for at this point. I don't expect this to be an rpg, but welcome a tactical game if that's what we get. And so far it seems to have a lot of the things that can make for a fun game, but a shitty rpg. Like I said, I have yet to see anything about the combat to draw any real conclusions.

    Well, pre-order cancelled, but I will be watching in case hell has frozen over and it's actually pretty good. I hope the 'design your own character' option that was promised isn't pay for DLC

    It's fun to see shitty projects fail but a part of me still suffers for some reason. Oh well.

    NV had it in Hardcore Mode. NV also gets bonus points for not being garbage.

    Anyways, this game won't even let you level up your characters manually. WTF kind of design decision is that?

    nothing, it's not dumb design decisions as much as it is barely a game. almost every "design decision" comes down to a basic feature not being implemented
