I backed this.. and am not concerned. It'll come out. Hopefully, it'll be good. If not, it was 15 bucks. I've spent more on lunches before. I will survive.

I've never played a Diablo for console, but I played a fair amount of Champions of Norrath with local multiplayer. That was basically a Diablo-like made for consoles. Honestly, in that title it was…

I do think good builds should be better than bad, but there is a tricky minefield to traverse here. First, you need to communicate the system in such a way that making a bad build is unlikely. I…

This isn't a post about RPGs. He's saying that the Souls games have a lot of lessons for gaming in general, not that it represents the future of RPGs. I think more classic PC style RPGs could learn…

Yeah, I understand. Based on my own experience, I think Dark Souls opened my eyes in a way Demon's Souls never did, but that was very much my experience. Whether or not you're missing anything,…

Just to be clear, I've admitted that taste is a big part of this and that the Souls games aren't for everybody. However, I think you can respect a game that you don't like and even like a game you…

Any game in particular that you'd want it compared to? I know a lot of people call Diablo-likes Action-RPGs, which just seems wrong to me. They're so different that they're not comparable. …

I mean, I've played MMOs before. I don't think comparing either aspect to MMOs is fair. If you've played through a Souls game and haven't really thought about the story or anything, that's fine. …

@Dart
