Wow! So excited about this game! The atmosphere is superb to my liking at least. The only thing I didn't care for too much is the guard npc's seem out of place ( they look like the belong in a more barren setting) probably just placeholders tho.
Combat is a tad slow but thats okay it looks alot like vanguard which to me had a very cool combat system minus a few flaws. Over all very very excited about the game.
It sounds great to me and knowing how deep Brad M likes to make his games I'm sure the crafting / gathering will be no different. If its set up anything like vanguard was I think we'll be in good shape.
