Argh! I'm swamped in Big Important Videogames at the moment, and during that one of the games I've most been looking forward to has dropped onto my hard drive. Not, not, not fair. It's Armoured Princess (or Armored, if you're from one of those countries that's afraid of the letter U), the sequel/add-on to last year's excellent strategy/RPG mad thing King's Bounty. The Russian version's been around for a little while, but the English edition is finally here. I am this: pleased. Yes, I am.
I can't fully turn my attention it until next week, but I just wanted to childishly announce that I've got it and we'll be covering it soon. Impressions from the ten minutes I've played are that there are an awful lot of words in it, and that it wastes no time in looking impressive - see the shot above. Oh, and there's a native 3D mode:
My eyes hurt. More so after looking at it with 3D specs. It's nicely poppy-out though, I must say, but I couldn't play it for long
No hints that it's going to be a significant deviation from KB, but then why would it? I'm just hoping there'll be a ton of batshit sidequests, as with the first. And plenty of excellent silly boss battles like this:
So, more soon. If you can't wait, there's an unfathomable Russian demo here.
