JoWooD Bundles to N.A.

Aspyr Media announces plans to bring several bundles of JoWooD games to North America for the first time:
AUSTIN, TX (October 10, 2005) - Aspyr Media today announced it has signed an exclusive publishing agreement with JoWooD to publish four of JoWooD’s award-winning compilation PC titles in North America. This is the first time North American players will be able to purchase SpellForce Platinum, Gothic II Gold, Silent Storm Gold, and The Guild Gold in the U.S. and Canada. All of the compilations include the original title and their corresponding expansion packs. In SpellForce Platinum, players will get three games in one – the original, its sequel, and the game’s add-on pack. Each compilation pack will sell for $19.99 and all are scheduled for release in November 2005.

I'll at least be grabbing the Silent Storm pack ... I got rid of the original a while back, and have had a craving to play it -- and now I'll get the sequel too.

I LOVED that game ... although my biggest complaints were the inclusion of the near "game wrecking" Panzerkleins, and a few mission bugs (and allowing the player to not take any squadmates, but then requiring them in certain missions).

Shit, never played Gothic II, will be picking that up and SS. Gothic and Baldur's Gate II made me take summer classes for algebra in high school; so I naturally didn't pick up Gothic 2...

Does that include the expansion pack?

May pick it up if so. Then again, there's about 8 million games coming out the next two weeks...:o

SS Gold. Oh yes, picking this up for sure. Wish this was multiplayer. That would be amazing.

Not to be mean, but I absolutely hate how JoWood makes us wait a year (or more) for any of its COMPLETED games.

If you have never played any of these, they are worth it. Otherwise, way too late as I already played the games ealier - you know, after waiting a good year or so for JoWood to just get of its ass and ship it.
For how long it took, G2 in the US should have been G2 Gold.
Thinking JoWoop publishing is a one-year death sentence,

Interesting. Gothic 2 was an excellent game however the expansion, Night of the Raven, is in German only. There are mods out there that try to convert it to English but you still have to get a hold of the original disk, or bit torrent/emule it.

Wonder if they are going to finally place the expansion pack in English hands? Gothic 1 and 2 are prime examples of RPG games.

I recently ordered Night of the Raven from a shop in the Czech Republic. Allspoken dialogue and subtitles are english, though it looks like you wont have to pay an outrageous price or wait three weeks for shipping. The Gold version of G2 wil come with the expansion.

Lets decide to release the Gothic 2 expansion the same month Oblivion is coming out. That should work out well for them.

Ya that is a marketing blunder! But I must say, I haven't played one Bethesda came that kept me interested for more than a week. Sure Morrowind looked great, had killer art, but after about 3-5 days of playing it all felt really generic. The problem with Bethesda is that they always do the more of the same approach.

Now Gothic 1 and 2 was a superior game story and atmosphere wise. Sure the graphics were good, nowhere near Morrowind, but I beat both Gothic 1 and 2 and never beat any of the Elder Scrolls games.

I really hope Oblivion will break this trend with Bethesda. Maybe smaller, more intimate areas, fewer towns (like morrowind) and a more classic Ultima style game. We shall see. I will buy it regardless just to show off the graphics on my rig, but really hope Oblivion grabs me by the nuts the way both Gothics did.

Also a nod to Arx Fatalis which was a very engrossing game published by JoWood.

The Panzerkleins are a real pain but there are some mods out there and one gets ride of them. There is another taht makes them not so deadly. I just wish I remember where I saw the mods at.

The Arx Fatalis team is making that Might and Magic action RPG, just FYI, in case you didn't know. Thats the main thing hat gives me hope that that game will be any good.

This has the addon/NotR and it is in English, they should have included Gothic 1 for the 29.99 price range

I used say/think how JoWood was going to going to be great for gamers getting good to great titles for good prices, helping many small struggling developers.
I guess, I still hope thats true but things arent looking that great, poor management seems to be killing them.

I went through a ridiculous amount of trouble trying to get the Gothic 2 expansion to translate to english correctly, without too much luck. I'm a little dissapointed that the only way they're bringing it to american audiences is in a "gold" bundle package. I already bought the damn game, I'm not all giddy about buying it twice.

I think a previous poster hit the nail on the head, though. As much of an amazingly huge fan of Gothic 2 as I was, I'm still going to go with Morrowind: Oblivion when November comes 'round. Let's just hope Oblivion doesn't suck.

At least I'll have something to fall back on if it does. That is, if the world doesn't collapse in on itself from the mass collective dissapointment that will occur if it does indeed end up becoming a steaming pile. The fate of the world is in Bethesda's hands.

Well it is only 20 bucks, which is a pretty standard price for just an expansion. The origional being included is just gravy for someone who doesn't have it yet.
