Just saw the trailer for the new Overlord game and i was completly exstatic!!..............for about 43 seconds, If you are a Classic Overlord fan you will know why i am cheesed off if you see this link. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZheVXS…
They made the new Overlord game a frikking Diablo ripoff! The old Overlord games were gaming masterpieces the way they were! Now, i have no problems with gamedevelopers wanting to try something new and to let their creative juices flow and to boldly head off into new areas to try something new and original, i am all for that! That's how we humans develop after all, but what i REALLY don't approve of is when they see another game that's really sucesseful *COUGHDIABLO* and shamelessly rips it off just to make more Money!!
I mean seriously! The old games were just brilliant! A really good story, hillarious dark humor, the feeling of Walking around while commanding a army of minions! It was just so awsome!!
While i am pretty confident that they will keep the brilliant humor from previous games this type of gameplay just isn't my cup of tea, no offence to all you diablo lovers out there, but the play style from the old games are just perfect the way it is, seeing a Overlord game like this just makes my skin crawl.
With the new gaming technology that we have nowdays imagen all the things you could do in the old games but with the mother of all upgrades!!
Customising your very own weapons and armor, builing your very own dark fortress, being able to upgrade your minions more personally as well as controlling them when you make them run around looting and fighting, and depending on the choises you make the entire landscape of the game will change and so on and so forth.
Now, if this is just a sort off "side game" to the original series i can live with that, as long as we are promised a new proper Overlord game in the future, but if this is the way all future Overlord games are to be.......it is with a heart filled with sorrow that i will leave the franchise.
The annoying thing is that they have done the same with my second favorite game series, Fable.
What is it with them and wanting to destroy good games!!?? What is it with brittish gamedevelopers and making games where you have to play in a Group nowdays? I know that there are truckloads of gamers that love online games, but do you have to mess up the great single player games? Sure, add online playing in if you want to, but only as a additional opinion! Don't make the entire game based upon it! Leave Overlord and Fable alone you big meanies!!!
