    Goddamn I cannot stand that Morgan Webb chick.

    This actually looks like a fun game. I'm at least excited to see how the Onyx engine works for them, because it appears to run seamlessly. It's a bit too early to judge how *pretty* it looks, given that we only have a bunch of consolefag previews of the game, but I've got my hopes up.

    Totally with you on this. Her voice and speech mannerism is so annoying I had to mute. Otherwise, it looks like an ok hack and slash.

    Hopefully not all that much. Why would it? It's not like this is MotB 2 we're getting here.

    She sounds like a Canadian trying to suppress her accent in favor of a general American accent... Oh wait.

    It's really just that opening segment with just her voice, where she tries to sound...well I'm not sure what she's trying to sound but it ends up being retarded. In the interview she's more normal.

    Unless we're extraordinarily fortunate, this game will be much, much less awesome.

    I haven't really been following this game but from what I understand there's no more party like the previous games right? So is this game like Revenant? Man, that game had an awesome combat system. Can your character block, learn combos as he levels up, does he have stamina etc? Or is it a "press a button something awesome happens" affair like DA2? Because if it's the former I'm sold.

    After years of accusing others of being Obsidian apologists or cocksuckers, I think I now might be becoming one of them.

    Cool. But what do you mean by perfect runs? Without taking damage or what?

    Obsidian that sucks at combat makes a game from a combat-oriented series.

    What else do you need to know about this upcoming piece of shit?

    The great part is you can play both! I've been following Grim Dawn for a while, too, but it is probably at least a year off of release if not two years.

    It's hard to judge right now. Have to play it at least 7 times first.

    I want to know if inovative and awesone dialogue system from AP will be implemented. ;)
    It's can't be more shitier than DA2 can be? Since I didn't liked both prequels much I can be even suprised in plus.I won't buy it before trying anyway. :D Skyway keep your hate pure and strong you'll need it in grimdark and consoltarted future. :salute:
