New (been in Early access for a while) ARPG released a few days ago.
Bought it on a whim now (currently 10% off on steam), and it is actually quite enjoyable. I bought it because it was an ARPG with controller support, and it works flawlessly. Unlike other ARPGs, it is not a click and move type thing, but rather constant control. Jump, double jump, wall jumps, dodge, etc. Every weapon have individual skillsets. I think there are 3 classes (get to choose between them a few minutes into the game). Not sure how different they are. Seemed to be tied to how to charge and how often you can use the overcharge bar (cast a spell). Don't see any restrictions tied to the types of weapons you can use, only "stat" I have seen is the level of the character.
Downside to it (other than being fairly bare bones in terms of depth and mechanics) is that from what I read on the discussion forums on steams, it is quite short. 5-7 hours for main story with some additional content in the form of challenges (IE: clear x amount of y with Z weapon, do X kills without taking damage, kill X mob) and so on. Most maps have various challenges tied to them.
You will undoubtedly get more bang from the buck in terms of hours of content from a game like Grim Dawn (currently 3 of 4 acts released in early access), but played it for roughly an hour, and while it appears kind of shallow, it is enjoyable and fun. Fairly sure the voice actor for Victor is Solid Snake.

Yes, I noticed that a few minutes after I wrote it Knew it was familiar, but yeah.... my mistake.
As to the game though, unless it concludes real fast, I think the main story is longer than 5-7 hours.
What does armor pen even do stat wise?
And the game gets so much easier with 3-4 players that turning on 3-4 hexes is barely noticeable.
I would say it is better than Van Helsing, but not as good as Diablo/Titan Quest.
Looks pretty good, especially for $20.
Been playing this on and off this week. It's pretty fun. I like the movement with keyboard instead clicking. If MOBAS did this I would play them more.
The hex system is pretty cool. You get 10% exp for buffing the monsters or taking damage over time, etc. Seems pretty good.
The challenges on each level and secrets are really cool. It makes the game a lot more fun the just grinding mobs.
I am like 5 hours in and this game is totally worth my 18 bucks.
Game's pretty sweet. The keyboard movement and active dodge system is a nice change of pace.
I also like the game. Only played for a few hours but I like the weapon switching mechanic and the challenges. It isn't mind-blowing but it is definitely worth $20 bucks if you like ARPGs. A solid, fun, unoffensive little title to keep you going through the drought of summer. Better than Van Helsing for me so far.
