Risen has been in the making for quite a few years and it's finally coming out for the PC next week it looks awesome and I totally forgot it was coming out. Anyway here are videos and it just went GOLD. Looking forward to a rpg game for PC it's been a while :)

It is from the guys that made the Gothic series and hopefully will not be as buggy at release. I can't wait to try this game in 3-D!

Re: Risen
I watched the trailer and only saw a Games for Windows logo, no GFW Live logo, so there might not be any Games for Windows stuff to worry about if that's so important. I'm buying it so I guess I'll report back as fast as I can if there's any Games for Windows Live stuff in it.

Earlier in the week I watched some German gameplay videos on youtube and it looks like Gothic 3 except with slightly better graphics and while the animations looked worse than I hoped the combat looks a lot better since the enemies kept blocking the attacks and it seemed like it could have some depth, like Gothic 1 and 2 had and 3 didn't. They mentioned in some clips that you get improved combos and such when you level up the skills, so it seriously seems like this could be a great game.

Anyway I'm very happy that all the hype for the game was localized to Germany so the game just sort of popped up a week before release now. Since it's so cheap I'll get it on release day and I'll be sure to post a bunch of screenshots and impressions.

Heh, I just re-installed Gothic 3 and it runs a lot better with my updated system and the latest community patch so far. Man, I love how immersive it is in 3-D.

Re: Risen
Because of the bug problem with the Gothics and the close release of Dragon Age. Also, I'm still playing Drakensang(which is a very good and long traditional RPG, btw).
I am going to wait on Risen, unless the the reviews start spouting its the best RPG of all time.....then I'll just have to have it ;)
Risen, is going into that category of games I want to play, but I save for the "lean" times of the year when there's nothing good out.

Re: Risen
I think I'll have to hold off on this till at least the first price drop on steam, I just can't buy it even if I want to. This one just came out at the wrong time and out of nowhere it seems. If this was released about 2-3 months ago I'd probably have bought it, but between all the sales and upcoming releases like Dragon Age, Uncharted 2, etc..., there is just no room for this one. Still, it looks really nice though.
