    This game’s death is that when you die, you have a chance of offering items and put your soul back into your body. Although, you can fail. If you happen to fail, your character is deleted. That is the badass thing about this game

    I died and rage quited.

    lol retarded comment spotted way above XD no surprise there since this game is very unforgiving and a lot of ppl QQ and creates a lot of A.hole(or attracted them to it).
    Nonetheless it is a challenging game to me so Bring it!!

    Would ya look at that? An empty comments list.

    I love this game and can’t wait for the full release. Its the first game me and my S/O enjoyed playing together because it doesn’t just encourage party play, it essentially requires it.

    The feeling of being in a dungeon and knowing that a million different things could happen that could wipe you out is almost addicting, however I hope they fix the difficulty scaling because we blew through the castle and then got nearly instagibbed by everything in the amusement park.

      I can’t help but think that they are releasing 6 days before Path of Exile? …. It might not have anything to do with that but i thought this will release later in 2013… Oh well gonna be jumping from WO to PoE and the way around when they are both released 😀
