    Default Something to watch for

    from 38 Studios: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

    I guess they just announced the name of their single player project. Looks like there will be a preview on the 22nd.

    Is this the secret MMO they've been working on for years with the code name "Copernicus"?
    Dual Targeting - The Targeting System of the Modern MMO

    If the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy was made by today's MMO designers, the first 8 hours would be condensed into 30 minutes, and the last hour would be stretched out over 8.5 hours. It would be all about 'The Ending' and not about 'The Journey'.

    Have to say, I've never seen a gaming website that just said, "Preview is coming". Usually they just wait and release it then. =p All about the hype I guess, big or small.

    No no, they didn't say "Preview is coming.", they said "The Cinematic Debuts." Totally different.

    No, it is the single-player game, Project Mercury. However, they will take place in the same world as 38 Studios wants to create a complete franchise.

    Fall 2011, pretty far off. But I will say this, the trailer makes it look awesome, though that is pure cinematic...but it really is flashy

    Yeah for some reason I thought it'd be out sooner. I really like the look of the game so far except for that shiny armor. Something about it just didn't fit. And when the guy ran I thought it made his legs look funny. Still a great looking game and it looks like they're going for a mature rating.

    Well, I was concerned when I checked the site at about noon that they were not going to sttick with their July 22 reveal date, but they made it.

    They made it, and, thus far, I am not impressed. I am not disappointed, either, but definitely far from excited. The graphics are the only thing I can judge in much detail, and they are mediocre at best. Based on the screenshots and cinematic, it also looks like a very generic fantasy world, which is not necessarily bad or surprising, but it does not justify needing years to come up with the world.

    The Fate Shift kill screenshot and cinematic hints at some execution system, which may be cool. The wizened female narrator is so overdone, though, yeesh! It seems that most fantasy games and movies feel they are not legit unless they hire some female voice actor with a throaty voice to make some vague statements about what is going on.
