Anyone else excited for Kingdoms of Amular? It's like Skyrim, Fable, and God of War all had a baby.

Short compared to what I'm used to playing. And I didn't consider at the time that it was a decent length for a general FPS. I think it's a fab game.. going back through it again.

You guys seriously haven't gotten tired of Nintendo milking every small, incremental portable hardware iteration to death?

They have no respect for the portable market customer. What happened to the company who brought us the Game Boy? They deserve to be obliterated by iOS and Android, to be honest.

True that, it's a lot of fun. A very fun "throw back" style of shooting game, with a lot of cool modern ideas added in (big over world, driving, leveling, etc). Fun stuff, definitely worth buying if people see it on sale.

Todd McFarlane did the character design, RA Salvatore apparently did the writing, and the project lead from Morrowind and Oblivion was brought over from Bethesda to work on this. It has a very cartoony art style, similar to Fable 1, 2, and World of Warcraft. They've made combat very combo heavy and fun, very reminiscent of games like God of War, but combined with a skill tree of RPGs.

This vid shows how combat is handled. Game looks like it could be a lot of fun, hopefully it ends up delivering:

Agreed. Speaking of which, how do you guys think the Vita is going to do here? Sounds like it's had a disappointing launch in Japan.

On these things, particularly the latter, I was pretty psyched about it. But I'm no fan of micro transaction mmos...

It's not an MMO, and won't have anything like that, so you're good.

Oh right, I've totally mixed it up with the Neverwinter one coming out. Doh. Either Salvatore was involved some way with that, or I was just thinking Neverwinter=Dungeons & Dragons = Salvatore. Probably just the latter. At any rate, I'm going back to Tatooine.

I had only heard a little of this game, but that vid looks very promising. Any mix of God of War combat with RPG mechanics is something I can get on board with.

I'm really excited for Guild Wars 2 as well, even though I normally dislike MMORPGs. Anyone else feeling the same? The art direction is outstanding: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/media/concept-art/

That's it. After a drunken trip down memory lane, today is the day I rebuy Star Fox Adventures.

I believe the Kingdoms of Amalur demo comes out tomorrow (maybe Wednesday on PS3). FYI, you get some free "in game" unlocks in the final game just for playing the demo, so you may want to check it out if you're interested.

I hate that so many good games are coming out in the next few months, I was hoping for a bunch of time to finally finish my backlog from this holiday. I'm psyched for Kingdoms of Amalur, SSX, Max Payne 3, Alan Wake: Night Springs, Mass Effect 3 (though everything they keep showing looks really blah in comparison to the last 2), Twisted Metal, etc. All of them are out in the next few months.

Maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention, but there's nothing I'm really excited about coming out soon. I can't think of a single game


Well, SSX looks cool and I havent had a snowboarding game since SSX Tricky, so maybe I'll pick up that one

Yeah, definitely one of my favorite games from the last generation of consoles. Had an awesome soundtrack too.
