Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning looks good, you should care photo



I'm legitimately surprised that people don't seem to be making any sort of fuss about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. You'd think a game developed by former Elder Scrolls talent, with R.A. Salvatore writing the story and Todd McFarlane designing the setting, would garner some attention. 

Weirdly, few people seem to care, and yet I've been hearing that any who play it are instantly impressed and consider the game strong enough to stand up next to Skyrim. It's weird what we gamers latch onto and what we choose to ignore. Seems arbitrary sometimes. 

Anyway, here are some screens for you to not look at.
