Is there any way you guys could update the way pictures are being displayed? It would be nice if the whole page didn't update because of clicking next picture. Why not use some Java to tidy things up abit? We've been asking for a long time now Thanks.
Obsidian? Really? They're the King of Being-Handed-Sequels. Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights 2, Fallout 3: New Vegas... So far their games aren't BAD, but they always have issues (so far) and just usually throw a random spin into it.
However, Square Enix is really pushing quality lately, so maybe they can whip them into line. It will be interesting to see.
They already have at least one hyped fan already - me!
Just one thing worries me though: how much innovation will there be if the best 'new' feature was in all the previous games?
To quote the article, "...new elements will be incorporated such as a co-op mode and support for up to four players."
DS2 was a work of art. It was one of the most thoroughly enjoyable RPG experiences of my life. It still shines out to me as having some of the best missions ever. Never boring - Just tricky enough - Beautiful graphics. I would not say that the DS series was stagnant. I would say that the new team have a lot to live up to and better not mess it up.

First of all, Blizzard's RPG is an MMO, so not really in the same category. Second, with Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights and Fallout: New Vegas as a pedigree, I think Obsidian is more than capable of putting out a very good RPG.

After what Interplay did to Black Isle Studios aka Obsidian it has to be Karma - I am glad that Obsidian is getting a second chance from the industry. After watching great developers just disappear left and right, (Origin, Bullfrog, Looking Glass, etc…) I am happy that one seems to be resurrected and given a chance to get back to where it was.
NWN2 was epic and Mask of the Betrayer was phenomenal, KOTOR 2 was good but it would have been great if Lucas Arts didn't "force" it out the door early. I am sure Fallout 3: New Vegas is going to be solid, seeing many of the developers there made Fallout 1 and 2 in the first place. I have not played Alpha Protocol yet so I can't judge it, but with the minds behind all the above mentioned games, the Icewind Dale series and Planetscape Torment, I am feeling pretty good about what they can do with DS3.
DS1 was one of the best PC games available, with beautiful scnenery (even today, I'll argue) and great gameplay. DS2 was also very good, if not better, but the Broken World expansion sucked. News of DS3 is music to my ears, though the fact that Obsidian is developing it puts a few scratches on the record (or corruption in the MP3 file, if you will, lol.) NWN2 is so buggy and slow, and the storyline, gameplay, and map design are sub-par compared to NWN1. That SE is publishing it is rather surprising, and I hope they can insure a good game with little or no DRM.
