    made informs us that there's an interesting Q&A thread on the World of Players Risen 2 forum with the new Deep Silver community manager that goes into detail about DLC, DRM, and why not every company can be as awesome as CD Projekt:
    Good ol' CD Projekt. It brings a tear to my eye.
    My heart is in Poland,
    My heart is not here
    My heart is in Poland
    a-chasing the deer
    a-chasing the wild deer
    and following the roe
    My heart is in Poland wherever I go.

    So basically not everyone fucks shit up the first time - so much it warrants a complete overhaul - like CD Projekt do. :smug:

    Another argument against consoles

    Also, just how friggin shameless can you get? You plaster in disc-locked content, then tell people they can unlock it for 10 dorra after a month, and then tell them again that LOL IT WOULD BE FREE TO UNLOCK AFTER A MONTH IF NOT FOR EVIL MICROSOFT, HONEST.

    Bullshitz and Liez.

    I made my opinion clear before about their DLC bullshit and he's defending it. I, as a PB fan-boy wanted to buy the full game day one but couldn't. Link on official page still goes into recursive butt-fuck mode to this day if you want to buy it from my region after telling them about it twice. The link on steam at the time didn't give me the 'day-one DLC'.

    Plus, the guy now in charge of PB shows that he probably hasn't talked to them, doesn't know anything about Gothic plus he is a massive Witcher fan. Double whammy. I think PB killed themselves with Risen 2, such a pity, G3 was definite decline, even with the patches it was as boring as Oblivion. Risen 1 went upwards and then they decided to shoot themselves in the head with Risen 2. Not sure why it's so hard to make another G2.

    I don't understand either. I loved both G2 and Risen, what the heck is going on in this people's heads? It must be the inevitable .... :decline:

    Probably a combination of some of the talented people moving on, demands from publishers to follow certain gameplay tropes, and a wrongheaded desire to follow the trends of mainstream gaming at the expense of quality and integrity.

    PB>CDP

    gothic 1+2+3+risen 1+2 vs. twitcher 1+2

    the DRM free version of CDP is just a marketing tactic nothing more,they didnt do it out of the goodness of their hearts(remember the pay up or else schemes in germany? :D),they made additional $$$$ with it,PB doesnt have the luxury to do such a thing because they dont own a game distribution service like CDP(that said day 1 DLCs are retarded,especially if you are unable to purchase the game in 1 piece,that was a serious fuck up)

    I hope that PB will finally finish the shit console games contract it keeps making with publishers and will finally do a Kickstarter project with the Gothic Licence on a PC only format.

    I'm not sure if you were talking to me or not, but I agree. Wholeheartedly.

    I would never in a million years argue that The Witcher 1+2 combined are better than Gothic 2 on its own. But Risen 2 was not nearly as good as their previous efforts, and I do recall hearing that certain core members of PB from the early days are no longer there.

    The only issue I think they would have there is that creating a game of the scope of G1 or 2 would cost a lot more money than they're likely to make from a Kickstarter. That said, I'd love to see them escape the console gaming yoke.

    Shame that even a complete overhaul can't save Risen 2, just like it couldn't save Gothic 3.

    CD Projekt uses customer service to disguise how mediocre their games are... of course Risen 2 is pretty awful so comparing almost anything to it will make the other game look exceptional.
