    I definitely will be. Looks like monster hunter without the mmo styled quests, heck even some of the mechanics are taken from it.

    Most definitely day 1 for me.

    +1 for this game. It reeks of fun, just smashing the mobs that get progressively harder with each level leads to some hard core monster slaying. And there are even quests so after 6 hours you actually feel like you have accomplished something.

    Really enjoying this. The plot is unsurprisingly bad, but the gameplay is brilliant. Pet peeve: third person makes it bloody difficult to follow the whereabouts of flying enemies.

    I got mine from zavvi.com ;)

    Level 24 and loving it. I love the fact that as far as ARPGS go both the action and RPG elements are done really well.

    Level 38. Going to be hard for this not to end up being my GOTY at this point. Loving it. There are so many small touches and attention to detail that make this game a classic. The devs went to a lot of trouble with this game. The random fights with the bigger enemies just wandering the wilderness top most of the scripted 'super epic boss' battles I've played this generation.

    Playing as a mage type, one thing I hate is when fighting epic monsters you can get them down to a sliver of health and then if they hit me once I'm so squishy I die lol.

    However, absolutely loving the game so far, it's pretty awesome even with the occasional annoyance.

    Level 41 assassin now. My pawn is a sorceror now which makes any giant enemies a case of distract the big guy long enough so my pawn can finish cast spell then reign in the death. So awesome :D

    Just keep playing and level up and difficulty goes away. It's great being able to go back to enemies you were avoiding just a few levels earlier and destroying them.

    Seeing as the game doesn't scale at all this does become a problem at end game where you are pratically one shotting everything. I'm at level 80+ myself at the moment going through a second playthrough getting the other classes up and I'm ROFLstomp everything now.

    Aww yeah sweet, i like no scaling. Yeah loving the game aye, im addicted now. Im only lvl 26 atm. But yeah yeah its just me though, i like pawning through everything even though it does take away from the challenge and point of the game i do agree but doesn't bother me. lol

    Yeah i got jealous and want some leet gear because i found this crazy lvl 23 pawn that i saved and am gonna use that has "dragons dogma" sword and crazy stuff. Its str is 1058 (188) and def is 578, and only lvl 23. I would love to have some better gear just to amuse myself so much more. Haha

    Would love to get either the best amour or Best weapon early on.. Iv got decent money kinda saved waiting to be able to get some good stuff but not finding much really. Will try and get the Crimson armour from Everfall, apparently you can get the set in chests there, and can buy the plate for 600k lol Hoped that someone who had owned the game and is over it could gift me something cool for my fighter..

    The thing is due to the lack of scaling and being able to go way past the intended level weapons/armour don't make a difference once your 70+ because your base stats are enough to attack monsters naked. You'll see quite a few naked/near naked pawns at higher levels ;)
