New Co-op IP from Bethesda? Oh yes, dear god yes!



Ok, I'm a bit of an Oblivion nut. It was the first real game on the 360 that i got lost in (and still do to this day) Richie then moved me on to Fallout 3 "It's oblivion with guns!!" and Ive gotta say I'm enjoying that universe and the seemingly endless, yet rich DLC (no horse armour here!) However I've always been a sucker for a more traditional fantasy setting, so when we heard from GDC about a new Dungeon Crawler from Bethesda with a 2 player Co-op focus i think i soiled myself slightly.
So what is it?
Well it's called Hunted: The Demon's Forge (Anyone else picturing the Chaos Sanctuary in Diablo 2?) and it's a third person, 2 player Co-op game based around 2 hero's, E'lara (think Amazon Bow and Arrowey type person) and Caddoc (Barbarian Tank type person with insanely big swords and grunts) 
The co-op is restricted to online co-op (Richie you in?) as they wanted to 'maintain a level of detail' 
There is also a Match Making system if you don't have a friend which has been modeled on dating websites. For me i can't leave a dungeon until every little bit of the map has been explored , so naturally it takes this in to account when when finding a suitably anal/stoner type. Alternatively if you are doing a speed run you should be set for a comrade just the same.


With classic weapons (swords, bows and axes), a fantasy setting, levelling spells, a demon in the title of the game, switchable characters, combination moves and a (seemingly)  proper implementation of Co-op im pretty psyched about this game (can you tell?)
Unfortunately for now in terms of release date all we have is 'when it's done' and with Fallout: New Vegas expected in Fall 2010 I'm not expecting this badboy until 2011

There is 1 thing missing from this premier blog.......

Vanille pics....

Her "hidden" magic tattoo happens to be on her ass cheek, what are the chances of that?

I thought that my days of pixel-infatuation were over at Miranda from ME2 since she slapped me down but Vanilles spritely manner and well the subtextual undertones of her clothing (its Japanese rope bondage) has actually made me watch some of FF13, I havent actually played it, my trusty girlfriend has that honour, but from what I have witnessed think FF X-2 of changing costumes to suit the battle, then remove the costumes and call them paradigm shifts and then take out all the control you have as a player from choosing what spells and actions to use and replace them with an auto battle option then continuly press "A".

We are only on disc 2 (if we had a ps3 then we would only need 1!! Imagine the time saving!) but it seriously needs to improve, I'm happy to play FF9 with Jizcomb, Matlock, Barry? and the rest....

Cant wait for the return of the FLAMING FANYRAG!

oh yeah co-op Oblivion, cooltimes.
