    Absolver - Dark Souls meets For Honor, brawly punchy goodness

    So, out of curiosity, anyone else getting this? Published by Devolver, seems like a very solid game, been on twitch a fair bit these days a week from release.

    Online with random people popping in and pvp, you learn moves from people using them on you, can make your own combo chains, plenty of styles.

    Combat overview promo video:


    30 dollars and seems to be a polished experience, minus some camera issues.

    Devolved official sponsored stream uploaded on the youtubes, can't vouch for quality:

    It looks really good but balance is going to be a huge concern.

    Yeah, with leveling and 'learning' skills it might be a big issue, although the old beta people seem to be very positive on the game and its balance.

    Either way, for 30 dollars even if i play it as a SP only game it seems worth it.

    Apparently you can hit max level in a short amount of time and the open world is quite small.

    5h of gameplay, people completed in single day streams and it looked really boring story/presentation wise. But combat mechanics are on another level, once you figure stuff out. Quite brilliant. Let's hope that's enough to sell the game.

    Yeah I don't mind buying just a 1v1 game but some people want more than that

    5 hours sp campaign plus high pvp potential sounds great to me for 30 but yeah, some people would expect sth different so good to know

    Some people i guess, according to an upcoming synopsis. Are there any 'proper' actors in the pilot?

    this does look interesting. Is it keyboard, pad or can you get away with a proper stick to control it?

    Tbh with the way the combat system is built a stick wouldnt give you any advantage i think, if i understand it right.

    It's not a traditional fighting game direction + varying attack combo system.

    That and it was really laggy, so i agree with that. So to swing fast you want high sense in ut.

    I'd say watch a stream or something from a guy you don't hate, probably gonna show it off the best if you got the time.

    I'm getting it and will post thoughts here though.

    Persevere you get used to, but i think you are missing the nuance in my concern.
