This morning yet another preview of Hellgate: London is thrown into the mix, this time by Boomtown...
"In contrast to many other RPGs, the battle system in Hellgate does not have a hit/miss factor. If you fire a missile at an opponent, it will always hit. There is, however, a chance of scoring critical hits that inflict more damage. Some of the 21 weapons planned for the game will also deal DoT (Damage over Time). 21 weapons may not sound like much for an RPG, but the number actually comes close to a hundred if you count all of the sub-types.
For instance, there will be rare or magical versions of the weapons, which are stronger than the regular ones. Hellgate: London is also geared towards co-op and groups, so some of the weapons also have cooperative uses. You could hold a demon with one weapon, while one of your teammates takes him down without being in danger."
This makes me wonder if the Holly Hand Grenade will make an appearance. Any ways, it sounds interesting... But, it's beginning to sound like a 3D Button Masher, only time will tell (mY 8uTT0n m45hiN9 5ki77s R l33t).
