Played both demos of 1 and 2. The games kind of played them selves. Maybe they'll add something badass to 3 like a direct control feature where you zoom in to first person view and play Dark Messiah style. Then again, I know they won't.

Same here... I can't play these games that play themselves anymore. I could stand it before (use to play a crapton of MMOs), but now I need direct control over what I am doing. Not a mouse click and a number click basically.

I tried to enjoy Dungeon Siege and in a lot of ways it had some really great ideas, but it just got so boring to play later on that I couldn't ever finish it. Can't say I'm too excited about another one.

I too felt like they pretty much played themselves. There wasn't a real challenge the way there was with diablo.

With the DS games, once you had a decent amount of power, you could more or less just click an area, sit there and watch your team to destroy everything moving then click the next screen.

that said, they were fun and looked very nice.

Titan quest was sort of a step in the right direction putting more focus on you actually doing something during fights but still, once you could conjure up a pet and had them at a decent level, they had the potential to do a TON of damage letting you kick back and watch them do the dirty work, occasionally lobbing a spell or ranged weapon attack in there every now and then if mobs occurred.

So has Crysis 2 and you guys can't seem to keep your hands off your dicks whenever you see a picture of it.

They simplified the nanosuit functions and capabilities and no one seems to notice...

Is this a linear lead you along by the nostrils type game or more of an open ended game? Did the old games support LAN?

oh nvm I remember this game...

Original two games offered paths but were linear (so was Diablo). Yes the old games did but that might change, seems many games are ignoring LAN.

Preach on, brother. I absolutely notice the console clothing Crysis2 is wearing, which is why I am not excited at all about the game. Will only pick up on the usual cheap, <$15.

I disagree.

Titan Quest is incredibly hard at higher levels and difficulties, even with pets. The pets are only helpful in the first 1 or 2 acts. after that they lose their value.



As far as Dungeon Siege 3 goes. I was a huge fan of DS1. DS2 didn't really do much for me. The game seemed to have lost a lot of its charm. I'm willing to give DS3 a chance though.
