Dungeon Siege 3 Preview

Loot is still king in Dungeon Siege 3, and you'll constantly be picking up new goodies from chests and fallen enemies. Inventory management is quick and easy, though with the amount of treasure to be gathered, you may find yourself popping in and out of the menus (where gear is compared and equipped) more often than you'd like. That said, once inside your inventory screen, it's very easy to spot and select your best equipment (based on color coding and price).Co-operative play is also on tap in Dungeon Siege 3, though it wasn't available to try during my hands-on time. It'll accommodate up to four players (a maximum of 2, locally), and is similar to the drop-in, drop-out co-op present in the recent LEGO adventures. The adventure (and associated progress and loot) is tied to the host's saved-game. The game's difficulty in co-op will also scale a bit, depending on the number of human players.
