Marvel Heroes just upped the action RPG stakes by adding destruction on a massive scale.

Tecmo Koei have announced that Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk is to be released across Europe on March 8, for the PlayStation 3.
Brian Fargo, founder of Interplay and creator of post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland, may soon be using Kickstarter to fund a sequel to the game. Wasteland was the precursor to the Fallout series, which was actually only made because Fargo and his team didn’t have the rights to Wasteland. They now have the rights back from EA.
In an interview with IGN, Fargo notes that the fans were the first to get in touch about crowdfunding for a Wasteland sequel, following the success of the Double Fine Kickstarter. If Fargo and the rest of inXile do go on to make the game, it would be “top-down, probably isometric, party based, skill based”, and rather than having to create the game to fit in with publisher demands, they would be able to create the game as they wanted.
Fargo hopes that a Kickstarter will go live in the next month, and notes that he thinks it will take at least a million dollars to complete the project.
Double Fine have found success with Kickstarter: the company’s fans have come forward to support them in making the game they want to make, rather than the game they want adjusted by the demands of a publisher. The donations so far have passed $1,600,000, and are still rising..
The responses so far have been very supportive of the idea, and from the comments it appears fans would like to see an isometric RPG, with turn based combat and a good story.
