This could be really fun. I'll watch it some more.

I have to admit this looks nothing like what I thought this game would be. I was convinced this would be an Elder Scrolls Game with a usable 3rd person view. It looks like WoW meets Darksiders. Can't say I'm too excited about this.

I hate the look of this game. The art style, color palette, fonts, everything.

This could be amazing if it is enough of an RPG.The first part of the video looked too WoW but that's okay, the game looks great in outside environments.

The guy with the ring blades and summoning looks like a ton of fun to play.

the skill thing kinda reminds me alot of Divinity 2, and i like that!

Looks fairly derivative and "samey". Published by EA? I'm sure that has everything to do with it.

We'll see how it fairs out, but there needs to be a lot of story substance to pull me over.

Looks neat. I'm much more interested in this game now than I was.

looks amazing

Posted by Skald

Man, this game looks neat.

Posted by Cornman89

Don't know what to think about this.

Posted by Boiglenoight

This looks like a mix of many different games. Not bad.

Posted by Tordah

I think this looks really neat. I guess I'm in the minority here, but I really dig the colorful and cartoony artstyle. Nice looking animations too.

But this isn't an Ask Me Anything?

I'm looking forward to this even more than Mass Effect 3. This is coming from someone who obsessively S-ranked ME 2.

Surprised this is actually looking decent considering this isn't getting very much marketing, but that's EA publishing for you.

Posted by Marz

this actually seems very interesting..
Darksiders combat - check
elder scrolls open world - check
bioware dialog - check
diablo loot system  - check
R.A. Salvatore story - check
Todd Mcfarlane art design - check
 
i'll buy it and enjoy it, fuck the naysayers.

Looks pretty cool to me. Combat looks quick and fun and the gameworld looks more colorful and interesting than many fantasy RPGs you see.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

The look of the game is fine, but the whole UI and thatI don't like. Besides that, this looks like it could be great.

Posted by RandomInternetUser

Provided the PC version is good, I'll buy this. The warrior looked boring as shit, but the mage-assassin (warlock, but come on, that was a mage-assassin, man) and thief character looked fun as hell to play.

Interesting. Seeing how this is another game being saved by EA, who jumped into the gap when the game's previous publisher dropped it for some reason.

Remember all those Double Fine games you've enjoyed lately? Wouldn't have happend if EA didn't jump-in to its rescue. Same seems to be true for Big Huge Games, though you'll have to google the particulars yourself.

EA's getting a lot of flak for the all the shit they pull, but seldomly they get credit for what they do right. Picking up Kingdom's of Amalur certainly belongs into the latter category. From the looks of it, it's going to be insanely dope.

Eversince Secret of Mana, I have hopes for another game mixing the depth of an RPG with more action oriented combat. It's been almost two decades since and this could be it. Admittedly not the first time I have such hopes, but one day it will happen.

This coming February. Secret of Mana will have a worthy successor. I bet on it!

Genuinely interested now.

Posted by AngryRedPlumber

The visuals remind me of Guild Wars. This looks like it could be fun.

Posted by Tsuchikage

I'm interested in Kingdoms Of Amalur. It's very colorful for an RPG and I like the action-oriented combat. I don't think it's going to be as deep an RPG as Skyrim or have combat on par with Dark Souls, but it looks interesting for a new RPG IP.

Getting Too Human flashbacks...

Posted by SpiralEye

This was one of the 360 launch titles, right?

Posted by subyman

Tons of stuff shamelessly taken from other games haha. Did you notice the Twin Blades of Azzinoth from WoW?

Posted by l3illyl3ob

Looks neat.

Posted by FoolishChaos

Really surprised at the negativity going around.

I like the fable games, for the most part, and some light rpg elements on top of some action gameness sounds good to me.

Posted by ptys

Really exciting, looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

Posted by zombie2011

This looks awesome, so many great RPG's to play but so little time.

Posted by Captain_Felafel

A fantasy God of War with RPG mechanics? Count me in, warts and all!

Posted by MadLaughter

I like just about everything but the UI.

Posted by MostlyBearded

Looks like this is right up my alley. I've been looking for an action game with some deep RPG elements.

Yeah, after playing Skyrim it's very hard to watch Brad scroll through those god-awful menus.

Edited by pancakehumper

Wow, that looks nothing like the trailers :( The font and UI are terrible. Eeesh.

Posted by The_Hiro_Abides

This looks like how I wanted Dungeon Seige 3 to be. In any case, this looks promising. And even better during the slower month of February.

Posted by Red

Looks good to me, but next year is looking to be a little crowded with loot-based RPGs.If Torchlight 2 or Diablo 3 come out sometime around this, I could see it getting buried.

Posted by blueinferno

This looks pretty cool.

They must've got the same guys who designed the UI from Oblivion too ;p

I like what they're trying to do with this game but the universe and general tone (the most important part of an RPG in my opinion) seems fairly generic. But like they said in the QL it's hard to really get a sense for these things in such short gameplay sessions.

 It looks incredibly dated and the graphic style looks very simplistic and bland too.
 
I wonder if the GB crew will be more forgiving of this game since Rich Gallup works for 38?
Posted by wumbo3000

This is Too Human in a fantasy world. But probably a lot better.

Posted by maxB

UI looks bad but maybe they will change it by release

Posted by Itwastuesday

This looks like good Too Human

Posted by Sharpshooter

This looks pretty cool. I love the visual style, its colorful and full of life.

this game looks way better than skyrim

skyrim is an ugly world without any color, this looks colorful, fast and fun

Ugly world?

Hardly. Though, there is a bit too much snow for my liking.

Posted by Johnny5

Woah they were self aware of their own video edits. O.o

Posted by PandaShake

Man, that warrior in the beginning looks just like a someone with green mid 40s plate items in wow. Fel iron gear I believe.

That's the same adjective I was thinking of while I was watching this. I need more neat things in my life. Looking forward to this.

Posted by Mister_Avatar

Between Mass 3 and this I'm going to be really busy q1.

Posted by prestonhedges

Man, that font screams "cheap game" to me. Not sure why.
