    Anyone else get it today? It's so relaxed!

    You can literally just wander round, doing quests, breaking shit and jumping on buildings. Like a gangster.

    Read a favourable review of it but not picked it up myself. Far to much stuff to already play!

    It's only out yesterday? I've had a couple people on my feed practically live-tweet the entire bloody game this last week, so I'm not into it anymore.

    I played it at that Microsoft weekend thing I went to last year, and thought it should have been called Dragon's Dogarse to be honest. I was with six other people and after five minutes I was the only person still playing it, but that was purely down to my own curiosity as to whether or not it would improve. By the time my half hour was up, I still found nothing decent to say about it. Perhaps that was a REALLY early build (don't think so, not if it was October last year) but I just didn't see the point to the game at all.

    Then again, the same thing happened with Battlefield 3 that weekend and look how popular that ended up being!

The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what 'acting professionally' results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways."

    I'm loving it so far. It can be bitch hard at times like many games of its type, but the pawn system works really well and the AI is pretty good most of the time.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    I'm finding it a bit aimless, its good and all but there's no real drive or reward for doing stuff.

    I played a few hours of it now, and I enjoy it a lot. The pawn system is really good, if you have problems with a quest or enemy you can get a pawn with better abilities or even some knowledge of the actual quest/enemy. I just traded in "Rook", the first pawn you get for "Sensei Kitty" who has better healing and damage skills and tadaa, those bandits are much easier now.
    It's probably one of those games that you really have to like to enjoy it, just like Monster Hunter (also by Capcom if I remember right).

    One of my co-podcasters rates this. Sounds like it might be the Amalur clone I'm looking for.

    It's not a lot like Amalur, but it's worth a go. It's good fun.

    Hello, its been a while...

    I've been playing this and really enjoying it. The story is a bit limp but there's SO much to do and the battles against larger beasties are epic (in the true sense). Also, the pawn system is another great example of asynchronous multiplayer.
