Trine 2 Hands On Preview

It's not the Lost Vikings exactly, but it's close enough that you should be excited.

This year, we're doing something a bit different. In order to bring you coverage as fast as possible, we'll be posting audio recordings of notes from staff members at E3 and later adding in a written version of the impressions. Please click through and check out this staff member's recorded thoughts on the game from the E3 show floor.

Notes

- very much like The Lost Vikings

- 3 characters, each with unique abilities

- 1 is a wizard who can create objects, platforms, etc. Physics based

- 1 is a thief with a grappling hook and a bow and arrow. Can grapple to anything wooden. Can swing across gaps

- 1 is a knight. Can you shield to manipulate things falling down. Can fight stuff, less puzzle-like than Lost Vikings, but still includes puzzles. Can brute force through certain areas instead of puzzle solve

- Can seamlessly switch between all three in single player, only 1 on the screen at a time in SP

- Impressive puzzle that started with water dripping down and log. Players had to manipulat the log to make the water drop onto a plant to bloom a flower. Once all four bloomed, you can progress onward.

- Online and offline co-op

- local is drop in/drop out - online may also have the same but not confirmed at this time

- wizard took control of an enemy to attack things, but otherwise he has no attack powers

- all players can gain new skills by picking up vials, but what skills it wasn't obvious what skills in particular there would be.

I enjoyed Trine a lot more than I thought I would when I got it in the Humble Frozen bundle. I hope this version comes out for Linux as well.

Nerds Without Pants Special: Leaving Las Vana'diel

Hey, all. Julian here with a short special to tide you over until our next big show. I'm joined by my best friend Shanna (who you may have heard in the special episode Love and the MMORPG) to talk about the last days of the Final Fantasy XI console servers. I've already written a piece about it which you can find here, but I still wanted to do some sort of special recording about this very important topic of mine.
