any ideas, i know it's a long shot..

I launch the app, introduction screen comes on for about a second then crashes to desktop

very fast

no error messages, no dont sends

doesnt work for a lot of other people either, but i have no idea why

Sounds like your graphics card doesn't support it!

now that im not too sure of...you'd think so..but..ubisoft game i think, using valve content

about the game play there is just endless ways to kill monsters :)

someone elses comments

its pretty good actually, now oblivion i couldnt stand it looked like a 15 yr old hack n slash interface
this on the other hand is similar in style but its so much better. you can hack your enemies to bits with power strikes, kick em of ledges or into spike walls, if you beat them to the floor or kick them over a crate or against a wall you can then skewer em on the deck and the spell effects and general scenery gfx are pretty amazin.. it just seems so freeform in combat style, i got picked up by and orc and throw backwards, once he'd sneered into my face, stood back up kicked him backwards, tho him being huge he hardly moved, and then hacked his hand off and ran him through. his buddy came running so i smacked out a beam holding up some barrels and crushed him.. pretty good tbh
sums it up really

hmmm, not sure i agree with the oblivion comment tbh though. the rest sounds interesting though


Standard Member
ah i just got confirmation, this game is being released on steam :)

apparently it will have multiplayer features..which would be interesting to see


Standard Member
not sure about that, but i think the pre-orders i've seen are like £40..

thats limited edition though

think i'll just wait for the actual release

Btw, my mouse kept conking out whilst playing on full gfx again, done this with tombraider... i reckon it must happen more often when playing New games because it puts more stress on the gpu, which would drain the psu more, i.e. the mouse cuts out because it doesn't receive enough power.

thats my speculation anyway...pfft.

Mines £24.99 from play but that's just the normal version.

Steam releases usually give a 10% discount if you pre-order and the game will probably be pre-installed and unlocked on the day of release.I see no mention of it anywhere being released over steam. Could I ask whaere your source is please (no pun intended:rotfl: ).
