    I love reading all the console gamer bashing and general game name dropping in console game threads. It gives me great joy when all the people that shouldn't be posting on the codex in the first place attack each other with references and sources no one on the codex should know or give a shit about.

    The nuecodex is alive in these threads. But, this seems like it could be a console game that puts rpg first so I might buy it on release of that's true. And if that is true it makes sense why there is fighting in this thread and everyone calling it shit, since you don't see that shit with the latest console My Little Pony jrpgs you fucking morons love.

    Honestly, for me, it wasn't just about ELEX, but it was more about supporting PB, considering they are the only developers left making these third person RPG's similar to Gothic. I don't really see any other developer making 3rd person western RPG's anymore, at least not the good ones (Fallout 4, Andromeda, Inquisition.. piles of filth). Obsidian is forever stuck making these fucking top down RPG's, so they're out.

    Do you really want a future where only Bethesda and Bioware are left making Fallout 4's and Andromeda's? I don't.

    Do your duty, pre-order ELEX.

    PB ceased being PB after Risen 1. There's really nothing left to support until they decide to go niche and do a throwback to the older Gothic games.

    I didn't like any game in Risen series but, seriously, Risen is leagues above shit Bethesda and BioWare are peddling in the name of "RPG".

    Also, I doubt it they'll touch Gothic anytime soon. Way too much hype and expectations with that name. Maybe they'll go back to it if ELEX is a success so they know what to replicate.

    This maybe the wrong thread, but I thought Risen 3 was better than 2. I just got to the part where you die and it's Risen 2,5: islands, bloody pirates and the exact same character/leveling system. Does it get different? Is Crystalmagic viable or is it just shoot roll shoot again?
    PB always had the same german voice actor for their protagonist, why did they suddenly replace it with some boring generic other guy?

    Risen 3 has different islands and they all have different themes. Go take a look at the Demon Hunter isle.
    You need a good ship to progress in the story, and for that you need to join a faction. DO NOT SELL any ancient knowledge, crystals or jade before you join one of the 3 factions. You can use those to buy skills from trainers. Demon Hunters use ancient knowledge, tribals use jade and the mages use crystals. If you intend to be a melee fighter, your best choice would be Demon Hunters and learning attack speed skills and spells like I did and fuck everything up. If you intend to go all magical, go with the mages as they have some really good spells. I don't really know about tribals too much. All the factions get a basic Kung Fu magical attack but I think the mages get some extra buffs with them. Shoot roll shoot roll is viable but learning how to play with sword and getting skills for it really pays off later, especially if you get a high grade weapon but in the beginning you WILL be a pissboy and get shit all over as a sword user before you get any gold.

    I went with vodoo guys in Risen 3 and I stumbled upon a funny sidequest in their camp where you can posses a tribal guard with your vodoo magic and then order a prisoner of theirs around. It was so well done I was pissing myself. :D

    Yeah, the voodoo quests in Risen 2/3 are definitely some of the few highlights of those otherwise terrible games.

    Like in every PB game, the non-combat solution is initiated by the 'Volles Pfund aufs Maul'-skill, which in general, involves even more combat.

    You start to sound like a broken record mate. But its nice to hear even someone as fervertly opposing anything not turn based as you is seeing a glimpse of the glory of ELEX.

    You just played through the shitty tacked on tutorial (which as pb claimed was enforced by the publishers). The game starts now and it actually gets better if you dont expect gothic 1 and 2 quality.

    I don't know what kind of dark magic PB use,but they have the only fetch quests i love! By the way who needs a non-combat solutions in PB game? Even Gothic games didn't have that shit. They had a combat solutions to a non-combat quests.
