Dungeon Siege Hands On

The Siege Works has posted up an article giving an in-depth description of playtesting the upcoming RPG from Gas Powered Games, Dungeon Siege. Here's an excerpt to get you started:

    So I opened up my inventory and the packmule's inventory at the same time and simply drug things from one inventory to the other. Simple as could be! As I passed the mouse over various inventory items I would see useful information pop up over each item, such as telling me that one piece of armor had a strength requirement greater than I currently had. This is something that Diablo fans will appreciate a great deal... you can simply hit a key and your inventory will optimally arrange itself to take up the least amount of space. Pure brilliance. Like many of the neat features of Dungeon Siege, it seems obvious after they've done it but yet RPG games have been plagued by this problem for years and I for one am very thankful that they took the time to rethink the status quo.
