Default 10 Upcoming Action-RPGs @ Forbes

August 29th, 2012, 22:33
Forbes has kicked up 10 Upcoming Action-RPGs To Keep An Eye On, Part 1. It's a reasonable list that surprisingly includes Inquisitor alongside Torchlight II, Path of Exile and more:
Inquisitorís developer, Cinemax, spent ten years in development prior to being released in Europe. Three years of English-language translation later, the game is set to release this September in North America. For any RPG fan with time on their hands, the 150-hour game boasts 5,000 pages of text and a dark Medieval setting in which you hunt down wicked heretics and criminals whilst battling innumerable foes.
It may not be for the feint of heart, however. Torture plays a major role in the game, with your character privy to a suite of torturerís tools. Also, the sheer size of the game is intimidating to say the least. How the gameplay itself will be I canít say, but Iím very much intrigued.
Check out the gameís website here. Read my first impressions piece here
More information.

only raw has me curious, as I am playing inquisitor and poe atm.
But I am skeptic that it can match any of them

unfortunately neither of them has the pacing and immersion that D1 gave me, I am still waiting for something like that.

The designers still prefer fast paced combat.. probably because it masks alot of AI defects

How is Path of Exile making a profit? I mean, what kind of micro-transactions do they do?

Some of these look really interesting, and I hadn't been aware of at least half the titles.

They offer perks to people who support the game. I'm sure it will remain in place after the game is released for people who want to buy perks every month.
