You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
I picked this up not knowing much more about it than, "This looks like fun".
I WAS RIGHT.
It's too bad this didn't get the attention it deserves. Combat is crazy good, the soundtrack is one of the best I've ever heard and the way music changes depending on where you are and what's happening is pretty brilliant. There's tons to do and pretty much every quest adds something to the background of the world in some way. Without giving too much detail, this game made me sympathize with the enemies in a way no other game I can think of has and led me to put some thought into sentience and how it might develop. The only complaint I would have is that the main story leaves some questions but even that is a bonus. I didn't realize it at the start but this game tells (at least) 3 different stories, each unlocked after the completion of the previous character's story and will contribute to the whole. I'm on the second story and it opens up a completely new set of quests and way to play the game. Can't wait to see where it goes.
I feel required by law to throw in on this.
The Cure - Disintegration
Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile
Dream Theater - Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory
Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape
Garbage - Beautiful Garbage
Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness
Rammstein - Mutter
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
No Doubt - Tragic Kingdom
Metric - Live It Out
This game is probably the best Rougelike out there. It's not overwhelmingly difficult to figure out the mechanics but there is a ton of strategy involved in making a party with abilities that compliment each other and it is brutally unforgiving if you make mistakes. Protip, don't get too invested in your characters early on or at all. They are going to die (and stay dead) often when you least expect it. You will eventually get replacements and make them even stronger.
