Default Overlord 2

Anyone else try the demo? I thought it was hilarious. Killing the seals and the hippy elves... it's almost political.

Yeah, I did try the demo. They cleaned up a few sticking points from the first game, like finally mapping the camera to the right analog stick without need to hold down L1 to do it. Also seems more straight up evil than the neutered version of the first game. I'll probably pick this up at some point, but I'm not even finished the first one yet.

I saw it on PSN and tried it but I'm sure it is on XBL as well since it's a multi plat.

Thanks Snad, I'll check for it after work. If not, I'll go upstairs and load on the PS3.

edit: It is on live-I just added to queue

Ditto, something about the game just didn't put it very high on my 'games to play' queue.

yea the elves are hippies, in other words gay. (not my opinion, just the stereotype)

I always took the first overlord as being satirical so this one strikes me as no different

they had the elves doing some ballet moves and stuff lol

Loved the 1st one... but as well only accomplished the Dark side to win the Evil Maiden, never won the good one... only thing that bothered me with the 1st one for several weeks was the lack of a map or any navigation... granted it's closer to real life that way but a lot of terrain looks the same unlike real life so your bugged by trying to find your way around. (then again I was always used to a mini-map in Warcraft and take that for granted in any other game.)

Yea... 1st game made a mockery of Halflings and Frodo by having you slay them with glee... this one looks to follow that tradition of insulting every Race.
