Before anyone says this isn't supposed to be here... i just requested a game forum for this to be made along with Tornado Outbreak. So as soon as both are made, i'll request both be moved there.

I personally hope that it'll be like Oblivion... that game was freaking fun as hell. Of course it won't be like an exact copy, but hopefully still have the same elements. What would be fun would be the ability to kill anyone this time.... no exceptions... for anyone,lol.

Game looks copy paste. Will look at and probably decide it is not in my taste really quick. They've already ripped the beginning of Age of Conan on their website.

I cant wait till this comes out, hopefully its not going to fail. Well with the way that most companies are doing the copy paste method you'll most likely see this game "fail". From what I can see on their website's blog it is just another game where you swing your sword around like a wand and cast magic. After you become supreme overlord of the island then you can go do the story like a calm day at the beach (in other words boring). What I'm trying to say is this game looks like it isn't going to be exciting or disappointing its going to bring exactly what it looks like and people will play it regardless. Ever since Oblivion that seems to be the current goal for all games that follow the genre and nothing has been able to compare to it.

(No point of reading further)
I hope the volcano erupts and everyone dies and completely ruins the point of playing the game.

And try to use a different word than FAIL. Its common use has made its current meaning stupid and can be mistaken for something completely different. Like how you put it I could have thought you meant gameplay, lore, graphics, the success. And if you're wondering. The game probably already has. First time I've seen anything about it. (Assuming you were meaning success of the game).

I personally hope that it'll be like Oblivion...
...and not Two Worlds.

I haven't played Piranha Bytes' Gothic series, but I've heard good things about it.

Here's the official website if you want more info:
