Awesome stuff man, great review. I've never played Gothic but you've certainly sold this one to me, I'll definitely try out the demo when my Steam list hasn't seemingly recieved an update for every game. I'll also possibly look out for that Gothic, thanks!

Small sidenote: you guys got a tag now, awesome.

Did my job, then.
Thanks!

You can buy them on GOG.
Gothic 2 is on for $7 til Monday.
Once I finish my next two reviews, I hope to be able to complete them and then give myself a proper go with Risen. It's really not the kind of game that can be rushed. That and I meant to become a pure mage...that didn't work out.

I'm digging the tags, too.

Oh yes you should try
I played all parts an love the whole thing. I can't wait to play this new jewell of PB and I also would love to see more PB games in the future. No other game catches me so hard from its funny charakters, its beautifull landscape and small places with so much live and joy in it. It newer gets boring to dive in a Gothic part again and again and again
Try it, and soon you will be a dependent of Gothic too.

I'm just afraid of what Jowood does without his heads of intelligence with this so called "Tale of Gothic". I fear it will lose a lot... Lets hope they have learnd a bit from PB, eh

So long and have fun...

My nerddom kicked in and I checked out the Amazon.de page for the collector's edition of the game. I translated it and it says it includes a beta code for their next title. So...there is more PB to look forward to already!

You're referring to Arcania: A Gothic Tale (made by Spellbound). I've thought the same -- Risen is a Gothic game...they've got so much of the series in it I have to wonder what Spellbound has left to work with. And the game's been cooking for a long time now with little to show for it...I could see it being canceled even, particularly if Risen does well. I do hope it turns out to be a good game, though, then we get two Gothics, or at least two great RPGs.

Oh, man, shoulda said earlier!

I guess I've missed the promotion, but if I haven't I don't think my cheque will have cashed yet

Thanks for your feedback Havenssong, I appreciate it. And what a whopping first post, welcome to the forum! Hope you enjoy it here.

It's still on for a bit. Don't you have a credit card? I'd buy it for you but deals don't work with the gifting system at the moment.

I have a debit card, I put a £200 cheque in on...Saturday I think, but I don't think it would have cashed in by tonight. I appreciate the thought though: thanks.
