A: I love the environments. Interactive destructible environments, Things hopping out of bushes really makes the world seem teaming with activity. Thing tear apart, blood splatters, everything just interacts well.
B: I don't like the look of the environment. Something about it just seems... soft. Maybe its like low quality graphics or something of my roommates PC, but everything looks almost cartoony. It is a bit disappointing when I'm watching and say "I feel like Titan Quest was darker than this" just because of how the coloring is. Its like when you go into Leoric's tomb everything fades into a dull fog rather than into black nothingness, and when you stack on the super flashy effects on it really makes the environment lose some of its intimidation that I got from Diablo 1 when I went to fight Leoric. (it also might not help that it looked like my roommate was just trashing anything that came his way) I guess I miss the kinda grittiness that the old models with simple fade to black lighting held in the 1st game.
C: I like walking over gold. At first I rubbed my nose at the whole drops gold and you can walk over it, because I'm a classic rogue-like junky and inventory is supposed to be tedious and painful. Where walking over basically dropped powerups reduces it to an arcade style beat-um-up. But after thinking about it, that is really a good way to handle it. Even if you do run in circles over stuff like you're playing Gauntlet for the N64.
Hopefully I'll actually get beta access soon and will be able to contribute to things like feel when playing the game. So this is kinda a super first impression purely as a spectator.
