Download this viedo, it''s 91 megs and has the developers doing a director''s commentary overtop of a bunch of gameplay scenes. I''m going to say something I don''t normally say about upcoming titles since I''m so jaded and bitter now:
The game looks f*cking awesome.
I looked at their website for about a minute and got a little intrigued, which for classic RPGs for me take a while to do.

Those are the times where I think about picking up a second job, so I can buy all those good games that come out. But then I won''t have enough time to play all of them. So it seems I have to choose. And TOEE is very high on my list at the moment.
No hay banda!
Anyone have a link to it other than fileplanet?
Wow, after watching that video I''m _very_ interested.

ToEE review at Gamespy
Hurrah! A D&D game that doesn''t suck!
Someone post when and if they find this in stores today
Aint nothing new about the world order..it's been playing since the day they put George Washington on a quarterDelivering Truth while the 10% deliver lies.
Someone post when and if they find this in stores today :)
Just what I was going to say. I''m not sure if I should make a trip out to the mall today or wait unitil tomorrow. I''ll probably go today since I want to pick up the new Perfect Circle cd anyway.
If you go...go after 6pm your local time.. thats when most eb''s or gamestops *may* get the game today..
Sometimes you have to ""convince"" the sales drones to open the ups boxes and check.. since its only a pc game.
Don''t choke them.. I''ve tried that before.. it only summons a level 3 security guard.
Level 3 security guards?...They stand no chance against my fist of rage +5!
Is it just me, or did GameSpy change their review formats?
I noticed that too, I thought they did out of a hundred but TToEE got four stars. A weird change to make, I wonder what drove the decision.
Hmmm 4 stars is more ambiguous. Actually maybe thats why.
If you give a game 3 out of 4 stars, that could look good to the games ad exec and convey mediocrity to the readers.
I can see the conversation now...
""We panned it in the review but ended up giving it 3 out of 4 stars which is a good score.""
Both sides happy
I would guess it''s out of five stars actually.
That wont work then. 4 star ratings are the most ambiguous. I mean a lot of people go see 2 star movies and enjoy them. That''s 50% if we convert to percentage. In the 4 star rating, a 2 star movie could be seen as ""decent entertainment"" that doesnt break any molds. That does not communicate the same idea as giving a movie or game a 50% rating.
Umm...fang... ToEE got 4 out of 5 stars. You''re middle-of-the-road star is still there.
