DeathSpank

From what I've seen it's gonna be pretty cool, so who's gonna buy it?

I'll be getting it on PSN, just because it's convenient for me. Hopefully ASAP.

Playing it right now on the 360, and I am loving it. I mean, really, this is old-school gaming mixed with amazing art direction, music, humor, and fun. Huge thumbs up. Anybody else had any time to play it?

I've been playing it a bit, enjoying it a lot so far. Less adventurey stuff than I hoped for but what's there is well-placed.

Got it for PS3 today and played 2 or 3 hours already. It's really fun and addictive. Awesome voice actors, hilarious writing and fun gameplay. I too hoped for more adventurey stuff, but the dialogues almost make up for that.

I've been playing it at a friend's house (will buy it as soon as my next paycheck arrives). It's pretty fun! I love a warm, welcoming, happy atmosphere. There's some niggles here and there, but they're negligible.

Yeah, I'm also hoping for a PC* version.

* Does not mean 'politically correct' in this context

bit of a talk spoiler so be warned if you don't want to know;




Just heard a reference to MI on DeathSpank, anyone whos played it will have met an old guy called Eubrick (has an axe in his back).

DeathSpank asks him later in the game if he has anymore exhilarating stories to tell. Eubrick starts talking about things hes done and what he knows throughout the years and one of them he mentions is that he knows what the secret of Monkey Island is.

Deathspank replies and tells him he doesn't really want to know what it is.

I wonder if that's a comment on the whole fandom that surrounds that question. I personally want to know, just to get it over with, but do most people really feel the same?

Can anyone confirm all chests are unlockable by the end of the game? I feel like I'm always one treasure chest behind and I keep getting armor and goodies that are somewhat below my level.

I too am waiting for a PC version, I don't own any consoles, but even if I did, I'd still much prefer to play it on PC.

That's a good question, actually. I guess it would be that I've just become so accustomed to using a keyboard & mouse that I wouldn't exactly want to use any other method of control. But then again, if I did own a console, I'd probably have grown accustomed to ITS controller, so perhaps if I did own a console, I probably wouldn't care either way and I'd probably end up buying it for XBOX or Playstation like everyone else. Well done, you've made me realize that my last statement was wrong.

But wouldn't a mouse and keyboard be more effective for a game like this, as it's most probably a click-fest like Diablo and Torchlight?

I don't think any other control type than a gamepad makes sense with this game (I have the PS3 version), because you have eight (freely customizable) attack buttons, which consist of the four face buttons (in Playstation terms that's X, Triangle, Square and Circle... best equipped with four weapons) and the D-Pad (the navigational cross, usually equipped with items like potions and magic spells).

The game has a combo system, so lining up attacks with the four different weapons (as opposed to just hitting the enemies with the same weapon all the time) fills the combo-meter. Doing this with the buttons of a mouse would probably be quite unintuitive. The analog sticks are used for moving Deathspank and moving the camera. Furthermore one of the four shoulder buttons is used to target an enemy, while one of the analogue sticks cycles through the targets in this mode. It's definitely too much stuff to handle with mouse and keyboard (at least to me it would be).

Well, that's where the keyboard comes in, with the number pad. Like the Torchlight interface, the different attacks/spells can be assigned to a specific number; it makes for a pretty convenient, easy-to-use control system. I'm sure Deathspank would have a similar system if it were to be released on the PC.

Did anyone beat this? What the hell was up with the ending?

Does Mojo have any word on possible DLC? It seems like the game is either unfinished or chopped off to be released later.

I think the second episode is not far off from release as the achievements have been revealed

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/g.../achievements/

Looks like its called DeathSpank: T.O.V

Don't know what T.O.V means but I'm guessing its "Thong of Vengeance"

Ah so that's where the pirate ship stuff went. Is this just an add on though? It seems like it is. Not sure how you'd get to level 20 twice.

Oh yeah, I should confirm that they are. You start getting unlimited gold keys at some point. I think there's 80 chests, but not completely sure.
