Darkest Dungeon

Postby Brian » Fri Jan 30, 2015 12:17 pm

I'm currently downloading my early access to Darkest Dungeon. Goodbye sweet world. If you don't know Darkest Dungeon, you should really watch this trailer and then get to know it.

I've looked at this many times, but almost always come up with 'meh'.

Tell me I'm wrong, please. :)

Viewing the trailer, I have to agree.
Looks like a Diablo meets Final Fantasy... but without the graphics.
Every point ever made was an argument.

Graphics are not everything, but I wish in games that lacked them it was made up for in gameplay. Many games now are just meh, still have a $60 pricetag attached to them. Or are becoming more 'cinematic', I'm starting to loose hope. :)

I dunno about you, but this bears some comparison to Banner Saga. It's art direction before raw graphical power. Take a quick runthrough of their Steam page, both video and screenshots. It's not on the same level as Banner Saga's masterpiece visuals, but...it's something.

To be honest, I do not care too much about graphics. Give me the infinty engine and a plot hook and im set. How is the gameplay?

Like roguelikes, you'll like it. Don't, you won't. Well worth the money, though I can't blame you for passing on it, either until it's A: finished or B: on sale.

I just lost two lvl 6 Crusaders and a lvl 6 Bounty Hunter all with one ancestral. Vestal made it out. :cry:

The mechanics are solid. People complaining about RNG haven't researched mechanics. Easy to play hard to master. Thought I was billy badass... 34 hours in I'm still learning.

The graphics style is dark and the setting is believable. I never play this style of game as I prefer multi player games but I've enjoyed it quite a lot. :mrgreen:
Things that made me smile:
