    Reckoning Plays Ball with Public Demo

    If you didn't take heed to the five reasons you should care about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, come see it for yourself. Here is a video from the PAX East public demo.

    I was there in the audience! I can even see myself if I squint. I didn't write anything up because they said they were posting the whole thing anyway, though I didn't think it'd take them until May. :-p

    The demonstration looks a bit fuzzy on Youtube, but rest assured that the graphics look fabulous in person. Just like Mac, this presentation converted me into an eager fan. The game looks like lots of fun.

    I can't wait for this either, it looks like playing as a mage in this game is going to be awesome

    A lie would be considered the truth if only more people believed it.

    Those chakrams look like something I could have a lot of fun with. I'm glad this game is looking better and better, I'd love for it to turn out well.

    Yes, I predict that everybody will be using chakrams.

    I'm certain it will turn out well and I've been excited about this one since RPGamer's first article about it.

    One thing I noticed about that meeting... How come there aren't ANY gamers in that crowd that aren't caucasian? I think there was ONE asian guy but that was it.

    The PAX East crowd was pretty white in general. Although one of my cosplay pictures is of an African American FF Black Mage.

    Um, for completely scientific research-y reasons...where is this pic?

    Our PAX East Cosplay Gallery is here. There were some really great costumes at the show.

    Thanks for the link. The black Black Mage turned out to be the wrong gender for me, but the pics were neat. Scientific research shall continue.

    These videos were great, it's nice to finally see actual game play of Reckoning, definitely a definite play for me.
