What were they thinking?
That the attention span of the common gamer is less than six months?

Let us be honest here,cheaters ruins games.
Then do not play multiplayer games with people you dont know. Play only with your friends. Cheating is normal and part of being human. You cannot prevent it with technical or juridical means, just play with people you know and be prepared, that some of them might cheat from time to time just for the lulz.

And remember ... its only a game! Nothing more, nothing less.

How is not releasing the source code greedy?
Not greedy, stupid!

Also, Eidos put Deus Ex, Tomb Raider, Hitman, Thief III and many other games on Gametap for free for a very long time.
Yeah! And Gametap got the games for free?

This game is good and whoever is stupid enough to stupidly believe some of those stupid reviews is stupid.
If you havent any standards whatsoever, yes, than this game might be some fun. But when you expect a Gothic RPG, than stay away from this cheap casual RPG for people, who dont know nothing about RPGs.

"Arcania: Gothic 4" is false advertising, no, its fraud!

If you reroll your character more than 10 times in PnP DnD you are kicked out of the group and never again invited. I actually played core 2.0e on paper, but nevermind that

What he said was to cheese the roll system which some people consider part of gameplay, i consider it an atrocity (maybe because we had a cool house rule that only 3 throws were allowed and you were allowed to switch 2 stats (their throws). Which greatly enhanced roleplaying and reduced this reroll cheese crap. Yes we were noobcakes for not going the "1 throw thats it" way. But then again, given our unlucky throws....

the ruleset implementation also has nothing to do with the balance of a campaign. I have seen newbie game masters handle the bad rolls and still make a challenging but fun campaign which is the WHOLE POINT of DnD. Roleplaying, not cheese caking your characters to 18 18 18 or being dependent on lucky crits or lucky misses (or indeed, lucky everything).
Jepp, QFT.

This just confirms my already strong suspicion that the game will be a stinker.
MMOs have to succeed in terms of content and gameplay, not graphics. Just look at Age of Conan. Looks stunning and gorgeous, but ... well, you know the story.

I have to wonder if the game is indeed as bad as EAlouse says the tremendous impact on EA's bottom line this game potentially can be. If, and I repeat IF the game does fail it has the potential of hurting EA more than most things in the past years, $300 millions for a publisher like EA is still a lot of money, IF all the guy's said is true and IF the game is as bad as he paints it to be. Otherwise if it's a great MMO I can see EA start to see a ROI in 4-5 years time no doubt.

300 Mio, all from EA or money that Bioware has invested? We dont know ...

Now if only the gaming industry followed the same path.
As long as gamers buy products made by slaves and yell at dev spouses, who protest against harsh working enviroments and devs are too afraid or too young to stand up for themselves ... nothing will change at all.

No, delete the downloaded image. If you like, what you see, buy the game.

But then you started to act like a reviewer, kinda contradicting yourself in the same tiny comment. Too bad :\
Sry, the former Gothic fan in me spoke ...

The following shortshort review was my experience after playing the demo. Several "official" reviewers had the same taste and reviewed this game as shallow and bland, a dumbed down RPG experience for newbies.

Which might be not that bad, if you are a total newbie to the genre or if you just want an easy action clicker. Then go ahead, have fun! But for Gothic fans ... this series died a slow death with Gothic 3, was critically hit with the addon and is now ressurected as a RPG zombie!

I'd say the reviews hanging around 75% are above mediocre.
Forget the reviews, play the game for yourself ... considering the hardware requirements, it doesnt look "that" nice. No, it's not the new Crysis of RPG. And the gameplay is far from everything, which made the first Gothic so memorable. Arcania is a cheap clicking game for RPG casuals. The story is bland, the dialogue cheesy, the combat shallow. Wait until the price drops under 20 or $ or whatever your currency may be ...

From all the info coming out of how Rage is exactly same as console, Rage has gone from 'day one purchase' to 'wait for mods to enhance and fix' before purchase.
But, but ... IT LOADS FASTER!!!!!

The Minecraft author, Notch, does $!00K per day. That is a $10, PC-exclusive game. So yes, the PC market in general can and does give insane profits if you know what you're doing.
Was it last week, when someone from Paradox said, that they made a hell of a profit in keeping a tight budget and concentrating on a niche group instead of trying to make expensive triple A game for all audiences? The budget for Sins of Solar Empire was around 1 mio. bucks and did Stardock not make millions of profit from this game?

And i remember some devs say, that switching to consoles means first of all higher budgets, therefore higher risks, less creativity and fewer profit from one single game copy, because of the higher production budget, licensing fees to Sony, Big N or MS and so on. There is a reason, why a major like Activision is not happy, when a game sells only 1 million units.

Yes, you could (!) make MUCH MORE money with console games than with PC-only games. But you have to invest gazillions in production values and marketing to be able to compete with the rest of the pack.

That would make a you a software pirate.
But only, if you sell the game more than once. And it does not matter, what the TOS says, there is a first sale doctrin and THAT is all that matters for customers. Steam account informations are being traded on a regular basis and thankfully Valve can do nothing about it.

If you are doing what you are insinuating, you're part of the problem and the reason we have DRM-ed services such as Steam, D2D & Ubi-Online (or whatever its called).
We do not have DRM because of such people, but because investors and most CEOs are paranoid fucks, who are tto afraid that someone might "steal" their precious copies, that they do everything they can to make buying their games as painfull as possible.

Really? What was wrong with it?
Dont ask me

I installed Arx Fatalis on both my XP and Vista machine a couple years ago and the only problem was a few textures that were incompatible with modern Nvidia cards somehow.
I guess they fixed that problem.

Yeah but thats not compatible then now is it?
It is. The game is fully playable.

If i have to use the same workarounds i have to use when i use the version i already had then whats the point of GoG.
The point is being able to buy these old games and being sure, they work on modern OS. GOG.com fixed games, which were NOT working with Vista/W7 at all, like "Knights & Merchants". Other games like "Arx Fatalis" got patches from the devs especially for GOG.com. As for others like "Messiah" or "Gorky17", they promised fixes in the future.

But besides that ... i am still waiting for the pony they promised me after shuttting down the service for a cheap marketing ploy.

What really is the prime fact is that while they claim W7 and Vista compatibility thats nothing but a lie for games like Blood2 etc.
This isnt a lie. Blood2 works with Windows7. Played it last month. Just avoid selecting resolutions above 1280x960, since the loading screen interface doesnt scale above that resolution.
