Crimson Alliance is the new action RPG from Certain Affinity! It takes everything we've learned about high action from working on shooters like Halo and Call of Duty, and everything we love about the fantasy genre, but gets rid of all that tedious backpack rummaging, and boring dialog!

Nice! Fingers crossed it has anything to do with Crimson Skies. Although it probably doesn't, since then it would be called Crimson Skies: Alliance.

Yeah, I've been think that too. At least I think it's safe to assume that it's going to be a downloadable title. You can always expect great things from these guys, they do quality content.

Thanks for the mods for making this a new thread. Should've done it myself.

EDIT: Actually, the news was posted yesterday, so was the unveiling already on Friday? Anyways, we'll be seeing more on E3.

The official website makes it seem that it has nothing to do with it.

So we'll see

Yes, that's an interesting little teaser, and it's releasing soon.

Here's the website in question.

I thought it was a pretty interesting coincidence that Certain Affinity and Bungie, who've often worked together in the past, both trademarked something to do with "Crimson". If Bungie had still been with Microsoft, it'd definitely have meant something, but alas.

So, no backpack rummaging? Does that mean no loot or inventory stuff?

I'd like to see a game like that with a bigger budget. But then again, we don't know anything yet, so xbla could be perfect. Isn't this 360 exclusive?

Dunno, Microsoft seems to be the publisher if we go by the tradelisting.

The game is already classified by our regulation board (Brazil). It is an action RPG for XBLA. XBLA is certain due to classification.

I'd would just like some truly action-based ARPGs being made for consoles instead of being limited to nothing but Diablo descendants that specialize in gear gathering and skill tree maneuvering. More action and tactics, less inventory and stat/build management.

It's actually pretty concerning how few western devs have attempted the genre relying mostly on the progression of the main game to goad people on, rather than throwing a bunch of loot treadmills in their way to kind of misdirect their attention. I'm quite interested to see one that eschews the overbearing emphasis on shiny trinkets.

Isn't what you're describing just an action game?

No, because stats and the dice rolling can still be a fundamental part of the game's method of resolving the actions of the player. They just don't have to dominate the path to success like it does with loot games.

Character development is fun for the same reason loot management is. Combat is just the way to get more loot and levels.

And this, to me, explains why combat becomes boring as hell very quickly in most loot games. I want more focus on intelligent enemies with logic and patterns to exploit in battle scenarios rather than it just being a clash of numbers. Halo/F.E.A.R.-quality of AI + Mount & Blade + Zelda inside of a coop-friendly framework would be nice some time in the future.

Thats fine, there's room for God of War and Devil May Cry in the marketplace, I'm just not interested. I like my action RPGs full of loot.

Don't get me wrong, I like an occasional loot-heavy game as well, but it's by no means a prerequisite for a good ARPG.

Sure, those games were great. Some of my favorites of the 16 bit era.

But if BO was made these days I would want glittering, 4 socketed, blue level-quality Chest Plate of Oblivions in it.
