so i saw this was free to play on steam, so started downloading it while reading previews on it

so is this some MMORPG, but can be played single and co-op to grind through dungeons like diablo/torchlight?
is an online community necessary?

anyone played/playing this?



if it wasn't obvious, i've never played a MMORPG

It looks pretty cool; and it's free, so, no point not giving it a try. Downloading now.

[edit]
Okay, well, installed, patched, and registered on the website and the game is constantly crashing during the load-up. Hmm.

Jeds brother is playing it, says its entertaining. I'll be giving it a shot with another friend just for a laugh. But yeah looks like your standard action online game where you just grind.

I love grinding in games. Final Fantasy and Pokemon have eroded my brain into thinking walking around getting random fights = fun. So it seems like I'll like it, if I can fix it. Restarted PC, disabled anti-virus, and changed video settings and still nothing, so the dev guy was absolutely no help.

Re-install I think is the next. If that doesn't work, fuck it.

So I've played it, and it's actually really good. I'm really enjoying it, especially with friends.

Extremely simple. Just a scrolling hack and slash game with a lot of different skills and armour and weapons, which I'm guessing will increase since the game's an open Beta right now. Graphics are gorgeus though, it's sort of cel-shaded. If anyone has played Dark Cloud 2/Dark Chronicle, then it's extremely similar to that, but without the cartoony features and proportions.

Not sure what to make of a storyline. Can't really see a main one right now, just little quests and the like which I'm guessing are leading to a bigger story. There are cutscenes before bigger Boss fights and the like with full spoke audio. And the game is free and multiplayer friendly, it's great.

Just made a teeny short video of gameplay of it if anyone's interested in it.

Ouch. Well at least it's free so trying it out and hating it isn't a loss. I think it's great, been playing on it all night. It's the type of Indie game I'd expect to see for like 10; but instead it's free, and multiplayer, and it's still just a Beta.

Om nom.
