Default Shack News - Guide to Underhyped Holiday Games

November 9th, 2007, 19:19
ShackNews has posted an article featuring some less hyped games to consider for the Holiday wish list with a brief synopsis of each. Some of you who play over a variety of platforms and genres may find it of interest.
Though the majority are not PC or rpg titles, they do include The Witcher:
Polish developer CD Projekt has made one of the most impressive PC RPGs to come along in some time, with The Witcher's mature themes and decidedly European overtones straddling the line between awesome and absurd through its entire 60-80 hour storyline. The game's gorgeous visuals enhance the immersiveness of the title's overly violent and sex-filled quests. Players take the role of the game's titular immortal—a hardass if there ever was one—who differs from Highlander's Duncan MacLeod in that he's figured out what living forever and being sterile is all about…The title actually follows through on integrating long-term ramifications of in-game choices, reminding you of the decisions leading up to a consequence with a quick flashback sequence. You won't find stuff like this in any of the much-hyped PC releases coming up, guaranteed.
More information.

On the handheld side, they list Disgaea, which is a good choice since it was overlooked in favor of the over-hyped and under-whelming port of Final Fantasy Tactics.

Glad to see Dementium for the DS mentioned (horror FPS), but they miss the boat with just released Panzer Tactics.

I hope that The Witcher gains in sales what it has missed in hype outside of the RPG circles.
