Dungeon Siege Journal/Preview

Electric Playground has posted a GamePlay Journal of Gas Powered Games' upcoming Dungeon Siege. Basically, the journal describes the game as the author plays through it each day. Here's a snippet from the first day:

    There are some people who absolutely despise game displays that take up any real estate on the screen. I'm not a display zealot like some, but those who want to see as much of the game world as possible will be very happy. The overlays take a minimal amount of space, can be minimized or expanded, and most are transparent to some degree. Despite this, some useful functions are right there on the screen, including a pause button, and buttons for health and mana potions. I like that a lot--who doesn't drink enough of those potions to float the Nimitz when they're playing one of these games?
