More Risen goodies!

Posted in news, pc rpg games  on September 30th, 2009 by: ian

The first Risen previews are starting to roll in now. The first of these is at RockPaperShotgun and describes a brief play-through of an early version and Alec describes his thoughts of the game and also includes some YouTube making of clips.  The second is at PCGZine and describes a more in-depth play-through.

Overall it sounds quite promising – in a this is an early version of the game and still needs to be polished kind of way, so it’s definitely one that I’ll be keeping an eye on.  As a final goody you can find the manual for Risen here

Risen

If you’re looking forward to Risen and live in the UK then you can look forward to it’s release on October 2nd – however if you live in the States then I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until 2010!

The release was spotted on TechWatch and also includes some info about the game – you can also find more information at the official site.  While it looks like an action rpg it is also being made by the team behind the Gothic series so it certainly has some great potential.

Impressions of Dragon Age and Divinity II

Posted in news, pc rpg games  on September 16th, 2009 by: ian

If you are interested in either Dragon Age or Divinity II then you should check out RPGamer’s PAX Impressions of these games.  You can find the Dragon Age preview here and the Divinity II preview here.

I’m really looking forward to Dragon Age, but I think Divinity will go onto my ‘ones to watch list’

and I’ll keep an eye on it.  With Dragon Age you pretty much know that you’ll be getting a fun game with an immersive story (something I always really like)  but it sounds like Bioware are really going all out to make the preview experience memorable.  If they’re half as creative in the game as they seem to be in the previews then it should be great fun!

What games are you looking out for in the rest of year?

Fallout Wars

Posted in news, pc rpg classics, Uncategorized  on September 14th, 2009 by: ian

Looks like Bethesda and Interplay are going to be having some fun.  According to this thread at the rpgcodex, Bethesda are suing Interplay over their distribution of Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics via Good Old Games.  Now obviously I don’t know all the details but it does seem just a little bit petty and I’n not really sure how many people would get confused that The Fallout Trilogy and Fallout 3 might not actually be the same game!!!

Anyway, have a look at the thread and let me know what you think – do Bethesda have a valid case or is this another instance of legalism gone mad?
