Added a couple more news items I found today.

The February '08 and Oct '08 (Current issue) of PC Gamer have a Demigod previews in them.


I did add one new link to demigodguru which has some scans of the February issue of games for Windows magazine, I'm not really comfortable with linking to scans though. If anyone wants me to remove that link I will.

Taylor died numerous times because he was so caught up in the battle that he didn't bother to notice his health bar declining until it was much too late.

what I got from that.. "if you die, a number of things could happen. you could drop a valueible artifact" ....that screams plz no 2 me.. the problem with these types of games is once one dies, not only does the other get money, xp, and an item? possibly.. *note hes already killed you once* next time it will be easier.. then even easier.. the game becomes an unclimbable hill.

I know its beta.. but ouch, but then again I do suppose that is a way to end a match quickly.. and its not like you cant kill em and take their items.. it just means the 1st kill is much more important. I suppose only time will tell

Quoting xBlackxStarx,

What if Items are more about limited space, and which ones you decide to use, rather than their cost?

Maybe you can only hold 3 items, and it only takes like 5 minutes to get one (out of 40 minutes, that means you could buy 8 of them even though you only have space for 3.)

 

And if Demigods have items that are unique to them(sounds like it from comments devs have made..) maybe the only way to get an item that might work better with your Demigod is to kill a Demigod that can use it.  That'd be kind of cool.

 

In DotA it'd be AWFUL I agree!  But this is Demigod so we'll see.

The video would be great if it were longer than 21 seconds. As it is, it only contributes to the puddle of drool around my ankles.

On the items, you don't drop items, you drop consumables like a health potion or energy scroll, I don't think it even removes one from your inventory.

That sounds cool, give a guy something to help him get out of the fight he's stuck in the middle of after a hard fight. It may be slippery slope if the items are too good, but that's what beta balancing is for.
