Dungeon Siege III Being Developed by Obsidian 84

Posted by Soulskill
from the hack-and-slash dept.
Square Enix has announced that it will be publishing Dungeon Siege III, which is in development at Obsidian Entertainment, makers of Alpha Protocol, Neverwinter Nights 2, and the as yet unfinished Fallout: New Vegas. Obsidian will be receiving input from Gas Powered Games, the developer behind the first two installments in the Dungeon Siege series. No release date has been set, but the game is planned for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, and it will include a co-op mode.

    Don't worry, Obsidian will be the ones to develop it. So it won't be bad because of square enix, it will just be a buggy unfinished mess with unsatisfying combat and a camera that hates you.

    Obsidian's games tend to be flawed, but that's still a bit unfair.

    Speaking only of the official campaign, BioWare's NWN is not even comparable to what Obsidian did with NWN2 (the only real appeal of the first game was the multiplayer.) It's also worth mentioning that MoTB is among the best RPGs of this "generation", easily hanging with the likes of Dragon Age.

    KOTOR2 I'll give you, though Lucas Arts rushing the game out the door when it was yet unfinished also factored into that. Had Lucas Arts given them time to finish it, it probably would've went down as being better than the original.

    Haven't played Alpha Protocol, but it does sound like it's their most flawed game yet.
