Kingdoms of Amalur is being remastered

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning remaster leaks online, studio says ‘oopsy daisy’

Interesting. I really enjoyed the original version. The only issue was with the camera on the PC version. I had to use a special program that let me change the camera angle.

Maybe if this does well they will do a sequel.

I wonder if it'll just be a graphical update or if they'll change anything else. I hope they don't mess with the combat system.

Weird @ camera. I never had any issues. Is it a common bug?

Would love a sequel. First game was flawed but fun and had a ton of potential. A remaster is cool too though.

I remember this game. It wasn’t bad, but if I recall it was meant to drum up funds for an MMO that never launched. Is this them trying again to get that MMO going?

I doubt we’ll be seeing any big name mmos coming out anytime soon. That ship has sailed and I think most companies don’t see the risk as worth it.

MMO's morphed into games as a service entries like Destiny, The Division and etc.

The grind is still there, money is made from game sales + cosmetics and there is no need to host the entire platform on servers.

The combat was basically the selling point for this game. From my understanding, many of the folks involved are still at Big Huge Games? Assuming it's enough of the same people, I would like them to drop all these notions of MMO's or whatever. They need to embrace action games. Nexon owns them now too, so financial issues won't be quite as big a problems. Although, that could mean going for some kinda Vindictus or TERA style thing.

I say just be a Western Team Ninja.

It's not that the camera is bugged necessarily, but a lot of people felt the PC version the camera was too close to the character. And there was no way to pull back the camera more.

Oh okay. I played it on PC and it didn't bother me. I remember the camera moving very quickly around me, but it didn't bother me otherwise. That's me though.

Dude, major respect for playing Vindictus, combat was one of the best I've played for an MMO.

I'd heard Tera was better tho?

Hell yeah. Vindictus's combat is fantastic. I love that they took their time developing each characters mechanics, so we get people that offer unique combat experiences. It's cool that Karok can grapple giant bosses, but Staff Evie has to dance around safely while getting off her spells. You actually feel what it would be like to fight as these archetypes.

My friend was heavily into TERA for a while. I thought the combat was good, but, unlike Vindictus, TERA is truly an MMO. Most of the elements that make MMO's what they are hold little appeal for me. It's hugely popular though, so I imagine any fan of action style MMO's will enjoy it.

I enjoyed Vindictus but it was only an MMO on a technicality. Functionally, it's an online beat 'em up you play with your friends.
