No motivation today.

Dumped Dungeon Lords last night. Ended up stuck in an area with no way back out, only other save was like 4 hours of game-play (and shitloads of mouse-button abuse in combat) back, and a quick forum perusal showed that this problem was had by several others. Suddenly, the game just wasn't worth it any more. Seeing Dreamcatcher's personal forums had gone down cemented the deal.

Don't bother with the game, trust me. Even if it worked fine, it's still monotonous and cheesy. And it don't work fine.

I can sympathize. I was playing some little RPG a couple weeks back. All of a sudden, two of my best party members leaves right out of the blue, saying I'm too violent. They never explain what that means, and since the only people I've been killing are BAD GUYS, IN BATTLE, it rather pissed me off.

I dumped it then and there and haven't gone back.

This thing is just so buggy it's not funny. I swear, it's like no one bothered to play-test it at all. Too many things in it that need to be reworked. Maybe, MAYBE, once they patch it enough, it might be worth it...but the game itself is monotonous anyway, and the combat style isn't good. Just not worth my time anymore.

Didn't really like that demo/beta that was out... too bad. It had some potential... I was incredibly difficult to play at first. As you just said, it's like no-one bothered to play test it at all. That dev company deserves to be punished for the DL tragedy...hehe

The full was no better. Just...just unprefessional to release a game with this many bugs/problems.

Holy crap, it went gold and shipped? Damn, I was playing the beta only like a few weeks ago... Now I feel bad that I didn't post about my horrible experience with the game... yikes.

Dungeon Siege 2 is much much mucho better.

too late, already bought it.

You're right on the buggy, but you forgot to add cumbersome.

That too. I'm just really unimpressed with the amount of things wrong with it, yet it was still released...and the clunky combat system is the icing on the urinal cake.
