    New weapons seem cool. Interesting weapon special combos, But same specials.

    New artwork of the bosses looks cool. The human has that ugly KR stance. I hope they fix the paperdoll with a nicer stance.

    Something is wrong with the "void" song. It craps out 3/4 of the way.
     
  6. What... no new special moves with the new weapons? I like the looks of the glass staff..

    OH.. will these all be craftable, or are some found only like the black staff is?

    About housing : will the current sets of roof be completed?

    About new weapons : you repeat the same mistake. It will be impossible to balance, and you will need to fill loot table with more and more items in order for players to have a chance to get their favorite weapon with good properties. Hyrius and Fandancers are already carrying a whole weaponry. The new weapons will only make it worse. :/

    One handed throwing weapons is a surprise.

    In U4, the magic axe was 2hander and acted like a boomerang.

    Dual Wield axe sounds good, but is it really a dual wield in the sense it hits twice? I bet it's more visual.. like rune blades.

    Check out those renders!

    The new dragon looks AMAZING! And that lich... *drool*
    great work! Those other monsters look awesome too!

    Hopefully that kindof polish will be evident throughout the rest of the client! (im not in beta so i dunno how its lookin so far)

    keep it up, devs
     
  12. Wish I could get the link to work properly every time I click it all it brings up is a huge stone ankh and a small paragraph about the Abyss.. does anyone have the full link to the overview?

    You don't see the GAME OVERVIEW words that are just to the left of the STYGIAN ABYSS Logo? (See Pic) You need to click that.
    [​IMG]
    I think the site is in Flash or something ... maybe your browser have trouble with Flash sites?
     
  14. I must that logo dosent even show up when I go to the link. I have to attach gameoverview to the link to get anything..lol.. probably right on the browser running IE and also Adobe so probably one of those two..sighs

    the site is definatly broken for me as well.. all i see is the main logo and nothing is clickable.

    running firefox, xubuntu 64.
    i got it, it seems to be just buggy.
    it loads the first flash preview and sometimes just hangs before it loads the clickable buttons.

    GREAT job on the Slasher of Veils.
    You can tell that the artists studied the Slasher of Veils sprite from Ultima Underworld and reimplemented the original concept turning the silly pixelated puppet into a terrifying daemon.
    The artists even took care of reproducing the pattern of gemstones encrusted in his skin.

    http://ultima.wikia.com/wiki/Slasher_of_Veils

    Now I understand what Cal meant when he posted that they've done their homework on the design of the Slasher. Congrats!

    P.S. For those who haven't figured out what I'm talking about, the Slasher of Veils is the big red daemon standing behind the man in this picture:

    You know how to tell if you've got a powerful music score? Moving people to tears...

    My wife's eyes were wet listening to "Northern Forest (Battle on Stones)" :p

    What she says - "Remember some time back there were posts comparing some sound track in WoW to Stones? There's absolutely no comparing to Stones!"



    My gratitude and most sincere admiration to the composer of "Battle on Stones", I honor thee!

    And of course to the composers of all the previous versions and the original :)

    Yet they ignored the official design of the creature from Ascension that wasn't juist a generic daemon sprite.

    Doesn't look too impressive there, but think of what they could ahve made with that as a base...
