Dark Messiah Might And Magic (Fantasy FPS) Demo
http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=viewthread&threadid=69783

May have been mentioned in GA but I haven't looked. Anyway you guys need this shizzle yo. Proper fantasy FPS, hadn't heard of it up till now, but it's the real deal.

1.4 gig demo (ROFBBQMAO) which gets you approx 15 minutes of gameplay, BUT it's pretty cool. Spot on fantasy atmosphere, swords, sorcery, orcs and gobbos, castles, caverns, you know the score.

Nice GFX (source engine), runs well even on my 2k3 PC, reasonable controls, and proper FPS gameplay that works well with melee even and has some fun options (kicking enemies into fires for example). Has a vibe of Blade + Enclave from an FPS perspective, which should be enticement enough.

What are you p1mps thinking given that fantasy FPSs are so rare then??

(P.S. Hi, it's me.)

I'm thinking Shambler needs to drop the ghetto talk. 
 
guess shambler quit quake :\ 
Couldn't Find Any Pics 
Closed the download links window. Proceeded to load forum.php and browse on. 
Oh My God 
welcome back Shambles :} 
He's Not Back. 
At least not back for anything more than annoying us with a shitty game that he has decided he likes for unknown reasons.


Pretty environments, I'll give it that. And RPG style leveling and skill trees are cool.

Combat on the other is about as involving as a game of minesweeper. On a 20x20 grid. With 20 mines.
And the movement! Dear lord the movement!
Shambler, I always thought you were one of those who moaned about "weak" movement in all games, but you approve of this? The movement is like molasses, if you'll excuse my use of a cliche. And this is weird too because all source games so far have had spot on movement.

Character design is meh too.

love, Your Goddamned Mother. 
Hey... 
I like minesweeper. 
Dark Messiah 
The first playthrough of this demo I was a little underwhelmed tbh, I had seen the previews and was spooging about this game but the demo didn't really do it for me.

Then I found the cheats on a forum somewhere and you can spawn enemies and friends wherever you point and after this the game simply is amazing, I think its just the demo level that sucks, I mean ffs there are 14 levels in the full game and apparently this is one of them, its FUCKING TINY, I mean jesus wtf is the 1.4 GB of download exactly???

Saying this, the game is most definitely COOL and I shall be buying the full version when its released. Best 1st person melee combat ever, forget oblivion! 
Yeah. 
I was totally digging it. I liked the vibe of it -- like being in the middle of a Conan type fantasy, and the possibilities for combat are rather wide open. I am so getting this in October. 
I'm Worried... 
The demo install is like 2.5gb or something (not installed it yet, no space), and it's just one level.

What the fuck is the full game going to require? A whole 60gb drive devoted just to this one game? Is this because of HDSHITR technology or something else? Is the texture resolution to 1024*1204? Did one of the developers hide their porn collection in the game directory structure and forget to remove it when he built the demo?

Xbox 360 games still fit on one dvd, don't they? What the hell is going on here? 
Than: 
they were probably really lazy and put most of the game assets on there, in other words textures and models and sounds that the demo level might not actually use.
