Maybe I'm just making the comparison because they have a similar design/art style.
So am I the only who was tempted to recreate the Nord in the trailers? My dude is blonde with warpaint, but he's basically the same concept. I've been wanting to create a Norse hero in a game for a long time, but few have given me the opportunity like this.
So far though, I'm undecided on twohanded or sword and shield.
