My friend who is a huge D&D fan has been tryign to sell me on this game for a while. I haven't really gotten behind the D&D rpg thing, but he's saying this is strictly action. I really liked the LOTR 2 towers and this is supposed to have a similar feel. Anybody else heard about this or into it?

Its by the same developer so you should be right at home :tu: .

LOL, that is good news. Makes me pretty hopeful. Does anyone know if it'll be a level up type deal like lotr too?

Yes, there is a trailer which imo looks totally awesome. Unfortunately I can't find it right now and I really shouldn't spend the time to look for it all over the net since I'm at work ;) But you should definitely try to find it. Can't find a link in this forum. I found the trailer when they announced the XBox version.

There is a trailer here but I don't know if that's the trailer I saw.

I'm definitely looking forward to this game. I love hack'n'slay RPGs when played coop.

I've been keeping an eye on this. I love Co-op fantasy hack/slash titles. Co-op is still in, right? I heard there was some waffling back and forth on including it. D&D Tower of Doom is the shizzit :D

 

Storyline is written by R.A. Salvatore of Dark Elf fame. Speaking of, I just made an new signature with Drizzt in it. New book coming out and all. :D

At xboxyde there's footage of levels 1 and 2 (PS2 version). Looks sweet so far. I like it that stuff happens in places you're not present. Big battles in the background etc.

But no coop would almost certainly mean no sale for me since I don't have enough time to finish all the games I wanna buy over the next couple of moths as it is. But I'm always looking for new coop stuff since I like it a lot to sit there with a friends, playing a game and downing a couple beers :)

Is this definitive?

I've only read dragon lance chronicles, so dont' ruin it for me and tell me his tragic flaws ;) I wonder if they'd ever make a dragon lance video game.....

 

getting back to the topic though..... Demon Stone in just two days. I saw an ad on spike tv last night and i really can't wait to get my hands on this one.

I'm debating purchasing the Xbox version when it comes out, but it just doesn't look as chaotic as Return of the King from what I've seen. Of course, the lack of LOTR characters and music makes it a bit less attractive as well. The deciding factor for me will be level/scenario design, so I'm interested to hear more about that.

Looking forward to hearing more on the story John. With Salvatore handling that I'm sure to pick this one up. I'm waiting on the Xbox version of the game however.

Yeah, you know salvatorre can't go wrong. I think i read someplace that he'll be using the warrior character from this game in one of his upcoming books. Anyone else read that? I'm pretty sure i'm not making it up.

 

anyway, i'm picking this game up tonight, so i'll let you guys know what i think

Per R.A. (via his forum) he said that he has contract with Wizards for 2 more books (last book in current trilogy comes out this month). He said he will probably do a book on Jarlaxle or Artemis Entreri next.

aaaahhhhh, took me forever to find this, but...

 

"Todd Hartwig: Well, I've already mentioned Drizzt, and Thibbledorf Pwent makes an appearance as well. There are other Forgotten Realms icons, such as Khelben Blackstaff. I believe that Bob is going to include Rannek somewhere in an upcoming novel so look for it."

you might be right though, i'd guess RA would know what he's going to be writing.
