This is the greatest dungeon crawler OF ALL TIME.
>>
Why?
>>
Is this one of those garbage games where you attack by pushing the enemy
>>
>>272365683
Nah there's an attack button
>>
>>272365627
the combat style, for a dungeon crawler, is optimized for maximum dopamine release in the brain along with a serviceable progression system and skill system
>>
>>272365498
what game is this? looks cool
>>
>>272365961
Xanadu Next
>>
XanaduNext is good stuff. It was impressive they managed to make a Diablo clone (which is one of my most hated genres) into something fun and engaging.
>>
>>272365947

You say it's the best OF ALL TIME then you go on and say an important aspect of the game is "serviceable"? Nigga what the fuck.
>>
>>272366110
No other dungeon crawler has even a decent combat style since it's MUH POINT N CLICK
>>
Yeah it's pretty fucking good.
I wish they'd make a sequel on PC.

OP is kind of a dumbdumb who can convey thoughts correctly

I'll bring you people up to speed:

It's a Diablo clone, only with a fixed Metroidvania style world and dungeon structure.
The combat is no longer DPS race- you need to take timing and positionoing into account here, think Souls games.
You're encouraged to maneuver around enemies, hit them from the back, and avoid taking blows yourself.

All and all, it's very good fun

It's for PC. Was it really ported to ngage too?

>>272366483
thank you kind anon I will try this out. I've been in a rouge dungeon mood lately and have been playing stone soup recently
>>
>>272366483
>The combat is no longer DPS race
Are there any other Diablolikes where this is the case? I can't think of any
>>
>>272367059
Not really. But it's why I can't stand Diablo likes in general.
I honestly find the Souls games and games like OP a more natural evolution of the ARPG genre.
>>
>>272367116
i agree. theres a reason why D2 is one of my favorite games ever and why I love the Souls games so much- i feel like they overlap in pleasing a certain part of my brain.

been on the hunt for years for a good dungeon crawler like this, cant wait to investigate.
>>
ever play Brandish?
looks good
>>
>>272368239
Enjoy.. btw, if you have a gamepad, I recommend playing with one

>>272368480
The classic version I couldn't really get into, but the PSP version is apparently much better
>>
Torrent? PB doesnt have any and isohunt just finds porn.
>inb4 you should have access to private tracker you pleb
>>
>>272368620
see >>272366483
>>
>>272368521
Of course, always with a gamepad!
Yes, the PSP version is what intrigued me more.
>>
>primarily controlled via clicking M1
I just can't stand that. It's my biggest problem with ARPGs. I don't see any reason why that system is still used over giving movement and attacks/spell us their own separate controls. Why stick it all to one button? I don't think it works very well, at least not better then using WASD/analog stick to move and M1/mouse/face buttons to attack.
>>
>>272369103
im pretty sure you can entirely play with a gamepad, no?

probably can
a lot of ARPGs allow that
still a bitch to get that working sometimes
controlling all the games functions via M1 shouldn't be the default, it really shouldn't even be an option

The game is more fun with a gamepad anyway. Can't stand the clickclickclick stuff

D2 is the greatest game ever made

In honor of your supreme awesomeness, I'm going to buy it based on that review alone.

Good show, mate.

diablo mixed with souls combat would be the hottest thing on earth

So it's a diablo clone that removes all the stuff i hate about diablo clones.

Thanks will check it out.

I take it loot is not randomized though

mcfucking blizzardrekt diablo clone comming though

Mite b cool

You can use arrow keys for movement, right?
>>
>>272374173
Not guaranteed
>>
>>272374047
DPS race game or not?
>>
>>272371789
Ah, sure thing friend-
But you can't really buy it, unless you mean direct from Falcom's JP shop...
>>
>>272373329
>So it's a diablo clone that removes all the stuff i hate about diablo clones.

EXACTLY why I got so much into it.
Also, no potion spam- instead you get limited amounts of packed lunches from your loli sidekick
>>
>>272374173
Don't think so, unfortunately.

You need gamepad if you want manual control over movement instead of chunky mouse maneuvering.
>>
>>272369423
what is this?
>>
>>272366191
So it's good because you press controller buttons instead of mouse buttons?
>>
Aw man, Xanadu Next was sweet. It's pretty much what I wanted from a Diablo clone. Instead of being about killing armies of enemies and collecting meaningless loot it's about exploration and challenging encounters. I wish it had more bosses, though.
>>
>>272376650
So it's not a Diablo clone, but more like an Ys clone.
>>
>>272376908
I'd say it's a mix between Diablo, Ys and Metroid
>>
Why is click-to-move still a thing in 2014?
>>
>>272376486
oddly enough yes. And this is coming from someone who prefers mouse controls in FPSes
