    Here is an interesting analysis of both videos: http://www.reddit.com/r/SeekingHenna..._to_nightmare/

    There are a lot of people putting a lot of effort in finding some clues.

    I'd personally love a new The Secret World, except with the actual action interface that Funcom promised early on and never delivered, and without the retarded tab-targetting garbage.

    Another new video released today.



    The smoke witnessed in the other videos makes a return in this one. It seems like the girl in the video has accidentally caused her home (or perhaps the home of someone else?) to "sink" in a sort of "impact" crater. Hence the name of the video. At first it seems like the girls speech is odd, with a lot of reverb and other effects, as well as what appears to be some audio reversal. Then it refines into "It's not my fault."

    This time, the message was sent with the title "Can you control your power?"

    Yeees in every way :O They had better have loot in this game, i've seen to many freaking ARPG games that have no loot in them as of late :I Any poo, i wonder what the payment method will be, is it going to be a nice one-time payment? Or maybe episodic in the same way as TSW/Wolf Among Us? (That seems the most likely) Is it always going to be 3v1, or is their straight up pve? o-o

    Here's the class information! :O

    Warrior
    Equipped with cutting-edge tactical gear from Earth, the Warrior excels when going toe-to-toe with enemies, crushing them with brute force. The adrenaline of close quarters combat fuels their ability to withstand damage.

    Assassin
    The sleek and mobile Assassin uses the cover of shadows to deal lethal amounts of damage. An expert in acrobatics, the Assassin dashes into melee range to quickly dispose of enemies and dodges back out to avoid any retaliation.

    Wizard
    Think of the Wizard as the smartest kid in class, who uses their mind to bend the elements and alter reality to take out enemies or benefit allies. A master of the arcane, Wizards burn and electrocute any hostile foes unlucky enough to cross their path.

    Cleric
    The Cleric channels the newly found magical energies through both modern and fantastical weaponry to both deadly and restorative effects, as the tactical situation may need.

    Ranger
    Rangers use their gifts to call the beasts of Embra and Earth to arms against the Shadow Legion. Combined with the tools of modern warfare and keen senses, they are a force to be reckoned with.

    Warlock
    Warlocks challenge the Shadowlord with their mastery of the darkness. They dabble in the arts of binding demons and conjuring volatile powers for the greater good of Earth and Embra.

    Shadowlord
    The mysterious Shadowlords reign over the many forces of the Shadow Legions. Their powers and forms vary greatly, but all have domain over the Heroes adventures, and all are bent on the destruction of Earth and Embra.

    The tab targeting wasn't really a problem, besides being a personal preference. The tab targeting system in a way was a bit unique with the free movement casting style. The main problem with the game was that it was filled with problems that you'll see when you actually play the game (mostly being bugs and delays from the episodic content). In my opinion, action styled game aka ridicule system have the same formula of a tab targeting system.

    This game shows and promise some uniqueness but I'm a bit skeptical what will actually be deliver. I'm mainly skeptical because this is a EA game really.
