April 20th, 2014, 16:58
Steam is once again selling Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning for 70% off. You can choose either the standard version, or the collectors edition with all the DLC.

The sale is good for another 35 hours. Thanks Dr. A for reminding me.

The minds of New York Times bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston have combined to create Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, a new role-playing game set in a world worth saving. Build the character you've always wanted and continuously evolve it to your style of play with the revolutionary Destiny system. Choose your path and battle through a master-crafted universe featuring some of the most intense, responsive, and customizable RPG combat ever.

Im on the fence about it.

Is it possible to have a good experience on PC or do you need to buy a gamepad/controller.

Both are viable options. I played with keyboard and mouse and it worked out fine.

I played this for the first time recently, after a previous Steam sale, and enjoyed it for several dozen hours though I didn't finish it.

I only m&k and it plays fine that way. Not a terrible game but not bad either.

This was the same for me too but the quests became a little repetitive and boring given the huge scope of the game. Just not enough variation to keep things interesting. At 70% off though, it's worth getting even if you don't finish the game.

Also, there's a patch on the net that let's you widen your field of view. Very handy patch and I played KoA more than I would have because of the better point of view the patch offered.

If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?

I didn't play it but bought it for some small cash on Origin.
Still waiting for that norespawn mod…

If you need a pretty good vid review, AngryJoe has one:

m&k works fine. Anyway, it's so easy that button mashing is enough to guarantee a win, specially if you go for the chakras, in my experience. PLayed with 2 characters though I only finished with one and I ended up rushing through it because it got repetitive and because actually doing side quests levels makes the game even less of a challenge by making you a higher level than the mobs in the main quest

Before I played the game I read many people comment about how repetitive it is. I felt that there was enough variety and it really kept my interest until at some point it did become repetitive and I lost steam. However, that happened at around the 50 hour mark for me and that's a good amount of play in my view.

In retrospect I should have bypassed many of the optional side quests … but I just couldn't help myself!

I played Reckoning for 200+ hours and didn't even get to the eastern zones. Awesome (and huge) game.

I played Reckoning for 5+ hours and didn't even get to the part where I could stomach the game. Don't waste your time.

Is this game ever not on sale? Feels like it's always on sale. I think I bought it for $5 several months ago but haven't played it yet.

How is the mod community for this game? active or non-existant?

Back when the game had just come out I tried the demo. My impression was that it is a single player World of Warcraft with somersaulting action (as opposed to hotbar) combat. I purchased the game the last time it was on sale, just in case I'm in the mood for that sort of game.

It's not as bad as some people are trying to make it out to be - It's just not very good.
