Games & Gear of 2012 – Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning (2/7/2012)



Ah the fantasy genre, the word fantasy itself means many things to many people, but for us (and I mean gamers here) you usually think of Final Fantasy or something closer to Lord of the Rings. For Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning it is definitely the latter. This game begins with your death, shortest game in history right? Wrong. Unexpectedly you rise up from an unknown corpse pile and come to find out that not only do you have the power to hunt down your killer, but to change the fate of the Kingdom of Amalur itself. This game is a virtual unknown except for the people who are making it: R. A. Salvatore, Todd McFarlane, and Ken Rolston. These three savants are only the tip of very talented iceberg who is fine tuning this project as we speak, as the game itself will be hitting the stores very soon. Add to the fact that they’re planning on spawning this into book, toys, and even an MMO and the only question now is that is it too big to fail?
