Looking forward to this game.

yeah it looks awesome!

Edited by reelife

Im just hoping it's good. Not some... bad Fable / Skyrim thing.

Edit: That girls voice sounds like Morrigan from Dragon age or Chloe from Uncharted.

The OG Xbox UI is seriously putting me off what looks like a pretty neat RPG. Would love for it to be fixed before launch.

Same, I keep on expecting to see a new video with a proper UI rather than this placeholder looking one, I think that's not going to happen though.

@reelife: I'm pretty sure it is.

@reelife

I'm pretty sure it's Claudia Black who did both voices, and I guess must do something in this!

@Ninja: For a game that is clearly taking such a huge amount from the Elder Scrolls series, you would hope that UI is one thing they would get right. Skyrim, which has it's own UI problems, at least looks like a game that came out in 2011 and not 2004.

2:34, Bruce was a ghost all along.

Claudia Black is listed in the credits on the game's main page here...

Hasn't this been the title of countless videos already?

Tacky as that is, really excited over this game. Please pull off what you promise better than Fable did.

Posted by coribald

Yay! More Reckoning videos! So excited for this one.

I want to be excited about this game, but I can't get past the fact that it looks like it should have been released 5-6 years ago.

As long as it's viable to play from start to finish as a stealthy guy that runs around doing those one shot kill take downs I will enjoy this game a ton. Every other aspect of the combat has left me meh, but I have always wanted to be able to play an RPG like that. I'm worried about playing that build and coming up against those bosses and just not being able to do a single thing. Hope it's balanced for that.

Is it me, or is claudia black becoming the female nolan north?

I dunno...this looks pretty good, and it looks like the game that Fable always wanted to be. But man it just seems a bit behind the times, especially behind Saints Row 3 and Skyrim.

I like the look of this despite the less than stellar graphics. Hopefully it's good as I am selling Skyrim to get this on day 1.

Steve Blum is in this game too? How he didnt get his own award last year is a mystery to me.

Posted by phrosnite

This game turned from "interesting" to "must buy". Can't wait.

This is what I can put together from what I've seen in these videos so far, a WoW single player experience with God of War combat and a skyrim map and alchemy system(maybe conversation trees)

The art style is definitely very WoWish inspired down to the Night Elf they showed. That might explain all the dated look coments, but I always liked the art style in WoW. If this game can pull together the trappings of the WoW looting look and feel without the grindiness by putting it in a tighter world like skyrim and giving it smooth and deep god of war action combat, then I am in sirs...

Posted by Stepside

Love the art style, love the depth, so stoked.

The level of difference from the What It Is video Brad & Vinny did to the promotional videos is quite a leap. I guess that's not a surprise, as many games do that, but it's still disappointing.

That said, I'd be interested to try this game. It might end up being what Fable wanted to be, but without that "Plant a seed as a kid and a tree will be there when you're an adult!" hype.

Posted by Death_Burnout

I was excited before, but I'm even more so now. Looks like the single player MMO I've always wanted, well, i hope so anyway.

they stated that it was a placeholder? or it's just wishful thinking?

Posted by altairre

I have to say that this looks awesome. I like the art style and if the combat system turns out to be as good as advertised then this could be an excellent RPG.

Posted by david3cm

Im excited for this game, but does anyone think the graphics look somewhat similar to SWTOR, specifically the faces. Not to into the graphics, but looking forward to playing the game.

Posted by Subjugation

There was some pretty annoying compression or artifacting going on in that video. It would flicker all blocky-like.

Posted by Ninja
@myslead I just meant that the current one looked placeholder and yeah massive wishful thinking!

During the bit where the Gnome is looking at a map, you can see a mouse cursor. This is the PC version.
Posted by super2j

i am enjoying that music in the backround..... i wonder if they will release a ost.

Edited by Twoje

@Deusoma: Except the cursor stays in the center of the screen as they move around the map. This makes it seem more like it's on the console. On a PC, the cursor would be moving around the screen, I would think.

Edited by doctortofu

Whoa, is it just me or is the quality of the HD video really, really bad with lots of flickering and artifacts? Tried streaming, progressive AND Youtube and they both are just barely watchable...

Posted by amir90

I feel this game mixes too many elements from different genres, that it might not appeal to the masses, as they would hope.

Still excited for this though.

Posted by MeatSim

That was some bad flickering and artifacting going on in this trailer.

Posted by Pezen

Cant shake the "World of Warcraft: Fable" vibe this game is rocking. I am glad there is a demo dropping for this.

Posted by thebigJ_A

I hate the art style, and I was really iffy on this game.

Then she said "mercantile skill". Oh please let this be like Morrowind in at least some ways! I'm sold.

Posted by Ketchupp

This game needs more shadows.

Apparently, if you download & play through the demo you get some unique items for Mass Effect 3. So there seems to be a reason to play through it.

I like the map and background graphics for the various menus. These trailers have done a good job selling me on this game.
