Space Siege - Demo Impressions @ RPS

Alec Meer has penned some thoughts about the Space Siege demo over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun:

More positively - no inventory, and all the bunkum that traditionally goes with that system. Or rather there is, but it’s impressively streamlined into a simple currency/upgrade system that means your mind is on the game, not the OCD loot collection/comparison. This is a Diablolike (of sorts) that doesn’t want to be defined by what’s probably the most ludicrous stereotype of the genre. I can’t do anything but admire that - it’s incredibly brave to ditch the foremost reason so many people play this type of game. Of course, this demo is barely more than a tutorial, so it’s not out of the question that inventory Tetris will show up later. I do hope not.
