Just Deserts: Dungeon Siege III DLC

Yesterday I spoke to two people about Dungeon Siege III. One claimed that playing the demo was such an agonising experience that she cancelled her preorder, the other boldly stated that it was the finest ARPG of its time. I was tempted to make them fight it out by furiously clicking on one another but it didn’t seem right. Not in the real world. Today,…

Wot I Think: Dungeon Siege III

The third siege of dungeons arrived a little while back, with Obsidian taking the reins of the Gas-Powered Games-created loot'n'kill fandango. I've been frantically clicking my mouse button at it for the last few days - an act which I have now transmuted into some words. First point of interest for me in any dungeon crawler: can I summon animals? Silently beating up monsters in…

Dungeon Siege 3 Getting Better PC Controls

Obsidian lead designer Nathaniel Chapman has stated in an interview with Eurogamer that the developers are currently working on a patch to improve the PC version of Dungeon Siege 3's keyboard and mouse controls. I've yet to play the PC version of DS3, but I was witness to Alec's agitated bellowing about the PC controls (among other things), so I'm going to go ahead an…

Done And Dun: Dungeon Siege 3 Demo Out

This? Right here? This is how it should be done. A whole ten days (and eight hours) ahead of Dungeon Siege 3's release, Square Enix and Obsidian have put out a demo on the game's Steam page. BOOM! That was the sound of assorted expectations being blown out of the water. It's especially handy seeing as it's only in playing DS3 that you learn just…

Club Together: Dungeon Siege III Trailer

There's a new trailer for arcade hack'n'slash RPG Dungeon Siege III, featuring footage of the game's four player co-op mode. Tell you what, as much as a deviation from Dungeon Siege 1 and 2 as this is, with four characters explosively disassembling monsters on the same screen and with the camera tilted just so, it finally starts to look like a Dungeon Siege game. How…

Dungeon Read: Sieging Comics

Does every game have to have a comic now? I don't mind a comic, but sometimes I just want the game, and none of this stringing myself along with prequel content and backstory in a different medium. Anyway, I'm probably being a miserabilist. So there's a Dungeon Siege III tie-in comic due from Dark Horse, spanning three issues - this is good news if you're…

Siege Three Dungeons For The Price Of One

Hrm. I'm a pretty wary of pre-ordering games personally - I like to hear at least some reception before I invest in a game - but if you were in the market for Dungeon Siege III anyway, you'll be very pleased to hear that future-buying it via Steam means you'll be gifted a free copy of both Dungeon Siege 1 and 2. Which is a…

Dungeon Siege III Misses Release Updated

Dungeon Siege III, previously dated to be released on the 27st May, will now be with us on the 17th June, three weeks later than planned. This we call a "slip". Square Enix have rather delightfully described it as an "update". "Sorry my homework's not in sir - I updated the time I'd be writing it." "Updated you say? That sounds like it's important. Off…

Dungeon Siege 3 Redresses Huge Imbalance

That's right! Because the latest trailer for Dungeon Siege 3 introduces both a sexy lady and guns to the upcoming action RPG in a single playable character, and about time too. I for one have had it with the video game industry neglecting the public's palpable hunger for both firearms and optimistic takes on the female form. The games industry will never know the loss…

Mule Variations: The Dungeon Siege III Chat

This week Quinns managed to get some hands-on time with Dungeon Siege III, leaving the poor boy equal parts confused and excited. He quickly hunted down the only other RPS contributor to have played DS3 - one Richard Cobbett - for a chat. Their ruminations on combat, consolisation, breasts and coca-cola follow, and at some point or other they talk about the game, too.

Dungeon Siege III Shows Off Magic, Monsters

Funny, I wrote the word "Dungeon" in our headline bar because I was going to write about the Dungeons English-language demo, only I can't actually find the link, despite having seen it earlier. What has happened to it? We may never know. Anyway, that word didn't go to waste, because our info-cousins at Eurogamer have posted another look at Dungeon Siege III, only with actual…

Dungeon Siege III Out May 27th

Dungeon Siege III or, to use its full title, Dungeon Siege III: The Battle of Lens F'lare has had its release dates confirmed. It'll be arriving in Europe on May 27th and North America on May 31st, and Americans can also browse their choice of pre-order bonuses here. A summer release, then. I can see us now- windows open, trousers off, a glass of something…

(Still Not A) Dungeon Siege III

RPS Best Friend For Life Richard Cobbett went freelance last week, abandoning his "Ma-gasine" (which I gather is like an overweight pamphlet) to live off nothing but his charm, wit and contacts. As we'd hate to see Richard starve, we offered him the chance to go and play the latest build of Dungeon Siege III for us. Has this franchise been changed for the console-devices…

Interview: Chris Taylor On Dungeon Siege 3

This was a good one. When I met up with Chris Taylor (of Gas Powered Games and Supreme Commander fame) at GamesCom for my Dungeon Siege 3 interview, it was our respective last days of the convention. My body felt like a trashed and soon-to-be-demolished building, and Taylor was engaged in some kind of mental wrestling match with a hangover. To make matters more awesome,…

Taylor: “PC is where all the opportunity is”

Eurogamer has found Gas Powered Games' Chris Taylor in characteristically bullish mood arguing that thanks to the enormous explosion in Steam, he thinks the PC version of Dungeon Siege III will compete with the console ones, noting that "every major player in the world buying a PC gaming company" and leading to an exciting future. Example quote... It's a matter of time before you're playing…

First In-Game Dungeon Siege III Footage

Dungeon Siege III reveals its first in-game footage today, and you can see it below. The game being developed by Square Enix and Obsidian asks you to "rebuild the once great Legion and stop Ehb from falling into darkness." And ohmygosh, it looks a bit brilliant. I really want a party-based hack-n-slash just now. Especially with the narrative sensibilities of Obsidian behind it. Crikey, those…

Obsidian To Develop Dungeon Siege III

Dungeon Siege III is to be created by the busy men at Obsidian. The company, having put out Alpha Protocol, now seem to be re-enforcing their previous role as a team who pick up other people's projects and take them in new directions. After Neverwinter Nights 2 and Knights of the Old Republic II, they're currently creating Fallout: New Vegas, and it's just been announced…
