    Why don't you have a "Bundle Fodder" custom tag yet, Metro?

    You'll have to ask the management.

    It doesn't even have jumping in it.

    Watched some LP's and so far it looks like an uninspired First-person shooter caster. Whether that will change has yet to be proven.

    LameSpot has some PAX footage of the game,



    I liked how you can actually debuff CC bosses with some risk involved, didn't like the apparent HP bloating on some enemies like the banshee and the existance of loot (dunno but it just feels unnecessary for this game and may get in the way of the game's strengths).

    that looked...frustrating.

    where are the spells that blow people up/back and insta-kill them? shit just stormed you anyway even as you where fireballing them with rage.

    Indeed, what makes me feel like a powerful badass mage is not spamming a million fireballs without taking a break, what makes me feel like a badass mage are casting spells that have a dramatic impact on the battlefield, like casting spells that cause enemies to kill themselves, reflect all projectiles, summon dragons and archdemons, instant kill spells (especially those that cover an area), create black holes out of thin air, then cast cloudkill in that blackhole killing everyone trapped inside, spells that make you practicly indestructible, meteor storms, mind controlling key enemy units (like the enemy generals and tacticians), then use said key units to take complete control of the battlefield. Of course, good luck balancing any of these things without any form of limitation such as mana, reagents or the vancian magic system.

    Any game where a Fireball doesn't knock the typical mook flat on their ass is a terrible mage-gameplay game.

    still, as evident in the video most enemies get hit by middle-level sorcery but dont even blink and arrive as planned into you face, which is a big NO-NO for a mage, if the char is a apprentice it can be understood, but then he should be in a troop of adventurers until he is powerful enough to be on his own.

    "Play the first game where the Mage is a total badass!"

    what a stupid slogan.

    As I said before, my impression of a mage that is a badass is one that is able to

    1. Summon demons from the deepest depths of hell.
    2. Stop Time Itself
    3. Instantly kill foes through various spells
    4. Toy with their enemies through illusions, debuffs and other utility spells
    5. Stand in the frontlines using their powerful magic not only as a tool, but also a shield
    6. Turn entire groups against eachother with a wave of a hand
    7. Terraform the environment, creating and destroying walls, obstacles and floors as he sees fit to meet his ideal battleground.
    Unfortunately according to my friend who got this game recently...

    1. There are no summoning spells
    2. There are no spells with any temporal effects
    3. Spells arer about doing damage and have little to no utility such as instant death
    4. There are only a few CCs, but none of them are any interesting
    5. The protective spells are basically just shields that a warrior use but with 100% less metal or wood, also the cooldown on them means that it isnt really viable and the emphasis is on dodging.
    6. While you can turn foes against eachother, they are just not as practical as other means.
    7. No spells have any effects on the environment.
    Basically a badass mage to these devs is someone who just spams fireballs and lazors over and over... yawn.

    I'll sleep for eight more hours and then cast a Meteor Shower on his damn village.

    Minute 4.20 onwards. A decade has passed and few or no games have given me the mage chills TS gave.

    Doesn't look very good. Rather mediocre actually. There's no punch on the spells and you're basically mobile artillery, not a real mage with a trick up your sleeve for every situation.

    On the other hand, I'm very excited for Hellraid.

    Too bad they've delayed it half a dozen times. Won't be out until 2015 now. Also... it's Dead Island with swords.
