This is how you do a professional combat game! Lots of Severance: Blade of Darkness nostalgia! Lighting is excellent. Map colors are beautiful. Art direction is masterfully done. Fighters look top notch. This is what i call a real fighting game. The devteam are comprised of skillful veterans, no doubt!!

But when you have to play the games character and not your own you lose a large chunk of your audience. It's one of the reasons I haven't bought Kingdom Come yet. Say what you will about Skyrim and Elder Scroll games but for a large portion of players, making your own character is half the fun.

True but then you can't craft a good narrative or story then. Also yes I know you make your own story as you play, but that doesn't appeal to everyone either.

One good example of it done right was Fallout:NV. Now a good example of how a forced player character sells well just look at The Wither III. Still in Steam top ten years later.

I agree on The Witcher 3. You have to admit that Geralt is one of the best players ever made in a crpg. The reason I never finished Witcher 3 was because the combat started to bore me and it was almost like watching a movie later on. Geralt kept me playing longer then I would have.

Actually looks pretty interesting, but the camera is awful. It's great to see some historical games which are not so eurocentric as KCD.

It does look like something that might interest me, but I'll watch for reviews on this one first before plunking down funds.

Looks like a tech demo, besides it will never have the depth (combat or otherwise) of Mount & Blade.

Historical setting? Knights of light for a game between Arabs and Sasanian? Give me a break please. Samurai of the Moon was already taken?

Oh hell yes.

edit- I really liked W3, but yes, it went on far too long. Some regs are just too much of a good thing.
