Being in 3rd place never felt so good

That guy really weirded me out with his spasms... err.. expressions.

The game looks really good though. Pretty sweet combat. If the RPG elements and character progression are strong, and there's a lot of stuff to do in the world with a good amount of variety, this title will definitely make a name for itself. Thanks for the vids!

Last vid:

Do people really get that excited when they see something "cool" in gameplay? Wow... I haven't had a reaction like that to any game since... well it has definitely been half a decade. The lady in the last vid talked about 'gaming orgasms' at one point.

yes the guy was weird. maybe what he means is that hes going for a game witha  deep, focused combat, but which is insanely fun.

They seem to have focused (and from the look of the demo, executed well) on providing engaging combat in an RPG setting. What remains to be seen is how much of an RPG is left under the hood. For example, Mass Effect 2 provided great combat, but at a great blow to the character progression and exploration elements. They still had "role-playing" as you took the role of Commander Shepard, but it wasn't in the traditional sense.

The demo made it look like Oblivion crossed with Fable, with the combat of a third person action adventure. The only thing that really bothered me with the combat is how the game sort of pauses when you land an attack. I generally can't stand when that happens in a combat oriented game. It's what put me off of buying Castlevania LOS too.

he talked about that in the interview, he said that it makes you pay attention to certain abilities, since some have more to them. thats when he started talking about candy which was weird. but i still have to watch the demo, im still at the interview.

WTH is wrong with this guy? lol

Anyway i'm very interseted but also wary because it sounds very ambitious. The more you try to do the greater the chance you screw it up.(I'm looking at you fable)

yes he is weird.

it does sound ambitious but their lead devs have experience, so they can handle the situation. 

anyway its coming in 2012 and thats a great relief.

They say it's open world but I don't think it looks very open world. If it is though I will definitley get it but if it's linear I will skip it.

I didn't see any reminisence of Oblivion or any other Elder Scrolls.
