The biggest sticking point with Necropolis for me is that I can't really get a good sense for where it fits in the pantheon of rouglikes that are out there now. The action portion works well enough and teaming up with a friend or three makes the journey better, but that feels like it's all it has to offer. It's humor, which seems to be based around poking fun at Dark Souls, could really help it stand out from the crowd; but it never quite sticks the landing and in some places, such as item descriptions, it seems more concerned with delivering a punch line rather than useful information.

[Update] Changes on the Way for Necropolis Prior to Console ReleaseJason Love

Patch 1.03 added one of the most requested features, better descriptions for weapons so you'd know why one would be preferable to another, along with a handful of other fixes, and this is only the beginning. Over the next several weeks, Harebrained Schemes will add new enemies, a new playable character, new weapons and armors, and a new environment. All of this will be free and should, depending on when the game "goes gold," be available in the console versions when they're released later this year.

When it was announced back in March that the title would be making its way onto consoles, the news also revealed that the PC version would be delayed so it could be enjoy a simultaneous release with the console version. The best laid plans of mice and men, and all that. There hasn't been any formal posting of the delay from the developer on the Necropolis site, but Eurogamer heard from a spokesperson for the studio that the delay is "absolutely the right decision, and that additional time will make for an even better Necropolis for consoles AND for PC."

To coincide with this news, Harebrained Schemes has released a new trailer for the game, entitled "Death With Friends." So while we all will have to wait a little longer before we can do that (wait... what?), we can enjoy some new gameplay footage in the meantime.
