Hey guys what do you think about the new RPG game, Grim Dawn that is currently in alpha?! I recently just bought this game, well bout the ability to join the alpha testing and I gotta say this game is pretty awesome so far! Reminds me of diablo 1 and 2 with its grittiness! Let me know what you guys think.. cheers!
i played titan quest in while i did wait for diablo 3 release ( very enjoy able game the first 20-40 hours and great storyline ), yep gonna buy Grim Dawn and it should be better game design then titan quest hopefull no hacking items that gives you 1bil dmg anyways just the story line is worth the money ^^
if its cheap ill prolly play it, but not instead of Diablo 3, prolly just for the storyline, as I love me some storylines.But dont make the mistake of saying its the next big thing.That was the label of all the MMOs that came after WoW and all of them , to an extent, failed miserably in competing.Too much hype ruins the game, just look at D3.
It won't be the "next big ARPG" for the simple reason that there are no dedicated servers and it is designed to be played offline or at tops with local multiplayer. It also won't be as user friendly as D3 is so that will scare some people off. Not to mention Crate is pretty unknown to most people.
BUT, I can say that after playing the Alpha for almost two weeks now, the game is shaping up to be awesome. At least if you liked Titan Quest. The amount of depth in the items and the skills is great and the game world seems interesting.
There is still a lot of refining to do and stuff to create but even at Alpha stage, the game has an amazing amount of content. The devs said that the Alpha is around 33% of the final game and it can easily take 10+ hours to clear the Alpha if you don't just run to the finish but also explore all the side quest and caves etc.
So I highly recommend checking it out if you are in to Titan Quest or single player ARPG/H&S games. And even if you are not, check it out when it gets released (maybe somewhere near the end of this year).
You are right Chiron, the game is def. not as user friendly as D3. You actually got to read and look to find out where to finish quests lol
Yeah, lol. After playing D3 I was a bit lost at first in GD. But then I read the quest texts with a bit more thought and started to realize where I had to go. Though some basement entrances etc. _could_ be a bit more noticeable, at least the ones you need to find to advance a quest. Some of those are quite easy to miss. But I don't want arrows and such showing you where to go.
