Will There Be A Reckoning Sequel? "Oh Yeah," Says Schilling

If you're enjoying Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, you'll be happy to hear that a follow-up effort is likely.

In an interview on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, 38 Studios founder and ex-Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling confirmed that a sequel to his new game is probably gonna happen.

The exchange was simple: Fallon said, "I bet there's gonna be a sequel," to which Schilling replied, "Oh yeah." He added that this studio "was built to be something that stays around and becomes huge." Also, don't forget that 38 Studios is cranking on an MMO; we don't know much about it right now, but it's code-named "Project Copernicus." Schilling has always been into MMOs so it's no surprise to hear this piece of information...yeah, a professional athlete into hardcore gaming. 'Tis true.

Hopefully, Reckoning will do well on the sales charts. It's meeting with moderate critical acclaim and the good news is, those who love it really love it. That's the kind of support a studio can use going down the road.

I love it too. Pure love. This game is about to become "my personal Dark Souls" when it comes to fan love. It's almost a relief to hear a sequel is for granted. :)

maybe craps a little harsh, but on the list of games that deserve sequels this is certainly towards the bottom!

I can give my 2 cents as well.

I like the game. With much doubt however. I say this because of mediocre production values (at best), the picking of locks is terible (leave that shit to Bethesda),
the sneaking mechanic is too slow (see Bethesda comment above),
running is too slow given the huge terrain you're given and f course to top it all of you're driven this hype of "the most responsive combat in RPG-EVER!!!!"

Ok. For those who are familiar with the (not so teleporting) Blink ability that replaces your Roll/Dodge move with a teleport (of sorts).

You have to "recover" to your original stance before you can attack again. Responsive? Mmk.

The dialog is...let's just leave it at that.

But then you are swept off your feet with all the cool exploration and finding secret treasures and fighting which sometimes can be so, oh so satisfying.

I'm torn. Torn because mediocrity is not why I bought a PS3. It is not why I smiled while listening to those PR mother lovers saying how insane the Blue Ray is and I certainly didn't buy it to be complaining about a game which at times feels like they just went:
"Yo, are you as tired of developing this game as I am? Yup. Pretty much. Wanna drop it?"

I mean call unreasonable but, when the spiders burrow their way out of ground. There is 1 SECOND gdelay between image and sound. Shit isn't synched, man!

I'm not one of the employees who have pour sweat over this game. So I don't know is my critique (aint worth a shilling) is reasonable. But I'm tired of the, dross that we're given only to be met with a statement which sounds like:

"WHAT OTHER CHOICE DO YOU HAVE?"

Well if I could send a telepathic message to Mr Schilling it would be;

Make the character rendering and customization an order of magnitude better and you have a sale here. Oh, and it would be *nice* to have an option to tone the blood down...

35 hours in , only done half of the first zone ( doing everything ) and loving it . 200 hours to do everything was certainly not an understatement .

Still can t believe some would dare say it s crap or that the production value is mediocre at best .

Might as well be blind and say the color blue is a mediocre color .That s how much clueless you guys are to what either means based on you re comments.
