I picked it up for 10 bucks. I LOVED Season 1 and can't wait to dive in to Season 2. On a side note, I've heard people say "Wolf Among Us" is even better.

Episode 1 of TWAU gives that impression. It gets worse though. Now I don't even care enough to play the last episode! TWD 2 is better imo!

LBA2 (Twinsen's Odyssey) is one of my favourite games of all time. Definitely worth the peanuts you'd pay for it on sale.

Same here! What an absolutely fantastic game this was. It was (kinda?) open world, and gave the player a certain level of freedom that was revolutionary. Once you got the improved jetpack...! That shit was crazy, crazy awesome!

I remember the pricing like it was yesterday, and that screenshot isn't representative. A 100 guilders were most games back then, which is now 45,- and not a penny more. Console games were f120,- which is 55,-.

Not. A. Single. Game is worth 49,50 for me. Not one. And that's coming from a "true gamer". It's a ridiculous overpricing of a product and one that didn't even lower when publisher's costs drastically lowered due to the digitalization. Hell, most games don't even have hardcopies for sale anymore as far as I know!

www.kinguin.net

I paid 33,- bucks for Risen 3. It's very much worth that. As I said: 40+ hours into it and still enjoying it a fuckload. Just got to chapter 3 and it's not hinting to end yet!

Sad to see Risen 3 isn't in the list. Most ppl who give it an honest chance would see the passion the devs put into that game.

Cool thanks for the comment on it. So do you suggest we play it on easy to avoid the game's combat? I'm waiting for it to be half price.


There's absolutely nothing wrong with the combat. I play it on Hard.

What's wrong with the combat is that it is ridiculously easy even on Hard. There is no challenge and the game is a snorefest because of it.

I've been playing it for 40+ hours by now, still smiling contently as I see my hero bash the last enemy's head in and pushing him off a cliff. Shit like that happens, because the models still answer to the physics engine even during finishers. It's hilarious and awesome.

Hilarious is not exactly the word I would use. No. It's retarded and unrealistic when a 800 pound gorilla goes flying off a cliff as if it was a feather and it sucks that sometimes you can't get to the loot when enemies fall to places you can't reach.

I agree that combat is too easy. It's too easy for me, too. However, enough people think it's too hard. It's all subjective. In fact, apart from the ridiculously flawed Dark Souls combat, every open world RPG's combat is too easy for me. Easy combat can still be fun combat. I think Risen 3's combat is great fun!

As for your physics issue: who gives a fuck? Every open world RPG with a proper physics engine (ie Skyrim) has this issue

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the combat. I play it on Hard. This time, the only way enemies can "stunlock" you is when you don't drop into defense after an enemy breaks through your attacks -- which hardly happens if you time your heavy attacks right. For example, an enemy dodges your attack (you should drop into defense right then actually) and hits you before you can finish your next move... It takes too long to recover from the blow so instead you parry or dodge the enemy's next attack(s) before you see an opening again, which is mostly after a few-hits combo the enemy executes. If you have Reposte and time your parry right after dropping into defense, your counter-attack gives you the upperhand again immediately.

Sadly this will be one of those games that will get it's fame when people actually go play it, instead of just trusting the bitter words of a critic, which is when the game hits the bargain bin. Kinda like Sleeping Dogs, come to think.

not played this yet, that might be my weekend done!

It's a great game, very fun. Highly recommended.


Just play the "I'm killing ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL you motherfuckers!!!" way first, as it's a ton more entertaining.

A ton more entertaining I'm sure, because doing the other play was simply a soulsucking, tedious experience.

Are there people that don't own this yet?

Tens of millions of Steam users? It really isn't that popular of a game.

I don't know why, it's the best stealth/action game since Thief 2 and probably the best game in a year full of great games. Any fans of the genre who haven't played it are really.. really missing out.

Hate the game, truly. It's just not fun at! It had the graphics of the Wolfenstein before the last one, was horribly easy and choosing the "good" path was skipping out on all the skills that would've made the experience at least a bit interesting.

I'd buy this one and go for the Metro 2033 redux if you wish it. The LL redux doesn't add anything worth the extra money you'd have to spend afaik.

Why the hell would Microsoft antagonize itself like this for such a temporary exclusivity deal. People now just think "Go fuck yourself" while waiting for the release on their platform. At least otherwise they would have though "Go fuck yourself" while getting themselves an Xbone. Maybe.

So dumb.

Because Microsoft does not make games for consumers... Microsoft is a gigantic profit driven company, they don't give a fuck about you or anyone else. They looked at the calculated ROI and saw it's a profit (console sales + % of game sales), so they did it.

The real question you should be asking is why Square Enix did it, because they decided to go with it. So in reality, Square Enix can fuck off more than MS

I just heard the echo of the brainfart I made on Aug 13, 2014, 10:39. Sweatdrop You're right, the entire comment should've been aimed at Square Enix for it to make proper sense. Cheers

You're the one trying way too hard to defend this because you can't handle the fact that you might like a game that others don't like, talk about panties in a twist

It's that you literally added nothing to the discussion with the "mediocre" comment. For a guy who has played the game and built himself a valid verdict, the comment was mediocre at best. I therefore didn't have the impression you played the game yourself. That is all.

PS: I'm sure you're one of the best gamers out there, Redmask! I'm sure combat wasn't too frustrating for ye

Seasons passes are up for passing

I know, right? Remember when a game was just a standalone game with no expectation of expansion pack, unless it sold really, really well? Now a game is an excuse to milk as much cash as possible from people. Season passes are just automatic now, regardless of whether it makes sense, is desired by consumers, etc. etc.

All season passes do to me nowadays is make me not want to buy the game at all... I wait until it's on sale with "all content"... for a fifth of the price.

If I want DLC I buy it on sites where it's cheaper than on steam, but often I don't want em at all Especially games like this that you play once and then you are "done" .... I find season passes for something like that absurd. At least back in the old days expansions usually added to the game from the end, so you could continue on after a game ending to experience more.. but now it's as you say, milking the cows for cash.

BF4 is basically the first time I didn't subscribe to the normal buying ways publishers want, bought game for cheap on GMG with a bunch of credit and voucher(just 30) and ended up buying the DLC I wanted for half of what it costs on Origin.... so I ended up paying less for what I wanted of the game than just what premium alone would have cost...


This exactly. DLC announcements pre-release makes me want to buy a game less. It has the exact opposite effect. Sadly, though, I guess the stats tell them suits otherwise.

And I'm a fucking hypocrite, buying both Island DLCs for Risen 3. The game just can't have enough content for me, though that doesn't make me any less pissed at Deep Silver for keeping content out for DLC purposes. My willpower needs exp -_-

Yup, I hate them. I want my game utterly complete for the original price I'm paying for it. If I need to buy the DLC, I'd much rather pirate them... which means I have to pirate the entire game in order for them to work... which means that buying the game so that I can play a clean game with working achievements would be stupid... which means that although I'd normally buy the game, DLC pushes me over the edge of pirating instead.

If we're not talking about day 1 DLC's but content that will gradually be developed and release months into release, I'm completely fine with that and I even support it if the game still interests me by that time -- which it rarely ever does, though.

Nope, day-1 DLCs are still the biggest scam the game industry has ever come up with and it's kinda curious why there hasn't been an all-out revolt.

The alternative to STEALING the game is to wait for the complete/ultimate/game of the year/whatever version including all the dlcs. Most of the distributors (exception: EA) release the complete versions of their games a year or so later at low prices. See - again no reason to steal stuff.

I agree, and I buy these Game of the Year editions. Like I said: Stay within the normal pricing and I'm all game. I want a COMPLETE game for 45 euros max. Not a dime more. I'm willing to pay for DLC that comes out further down the line.

Wait, you mean to say you played it?

"No, but read reviews and saw vids."

Let one thing be clear: People generally suck at gaming and judging games from an objective point of view. Just pirate the game as a demo and be honest about it. You like it? You buy it. You don't? You delete it.

When I watch people play any Risen game (or Gothic), I throw up in my mouth.

CJ_Parker, I somehow sense allot of frustration there. I know that feeling when it's hard to fathom somebody can have such an ultimately different opinion as yourself.

Graphics & Animations... well, I truly love them. The physics are very well done, too. Have you looked at the pinetrees dancing in the wind? An incredible amount of love is put into this world! In the end, though, it's all subjective observation.

Combat... sure, constantly rolling is a way too exploit the system. They should have fixed this by adding a stamina bar. I only use dodge when it's truly necessary, which is only when fighting giant creatures or when normal enemies use power attacks. Riposting with a well-timed parry parry -- and therefore staying on the offense although you just dropped into defense -- feels very... 1337. I can also remember my Dark Souls experience: A huge giant creature attacks me on a small wall. How do I kill this creature in this oh-so-grand game? I hug his feet, keep rolling and hitting and rolling and hitting. There are SO.MANY.GAMES where you can exploit the combat system, man. So many!

Retard HUD tips... you can turn them off, so I wonder why you're complaining about that. Have you played the game yourself?

Blahblahbluhbleh... are you trying to sound like a genius here who figured out something infinitely complex?

Such a gamer thing, getting your panties in a bunch because someone gives advise that is obvious to you.

I'm loving Risen 3 so much! The graphics and animations look really good, combat is great once you get good in it (awesome to parry at the exact right moment after a streak of attacks so that your character ripostes with another hit), allot of places to explore and chests to lockpick, etc etc.

Risen 1 was great, Risen 2 was a shame, Risen 3 is great once again. I hear allot of people are complaining about combat being too hard. Some don't seem to understand that you don't need to keep holding the mousebutton in order to execute heavy strikes -- once your hand starts glowing and your animation turns into slowmotion, it's actually the que to to let the mousebutton go! Also, dodge or parry after an enemy dodges your attack because they're on you before your next swing lands.
