Hellgate: London Beta Impressions

Likes Lots of action — Fighting is satisfying. Great graphics — Despite my hardware’s age what I see of the graphics does not detract from my game experience.

Portal or Hellgate?

A friend of mine showed me Portal last night. I may have to get it. Portal is annoyingly packaged in a compilation called “The Orange Box” which contains other games that I don’t care about.

I’ve been drooling over graphics, trailers, and news bits for months. Demons, London, post-apocalyptic setting — what’s not to love? It’s meant to be first-person for ranged combat and third-person for melee…
