    Fast travel? In a PB game? What happened to the teleport runes? :roll:

    ^ What makes you think that's not what they mean? Or that they aren't talking about the "ship"? Or any other possible interpretation of fast-travel that isn't like Fallout 1 or 2 Elder Scrolls?

    So long as you can't do it prior to discovering a certain location... what's the difference?

    I'm actually looking forward to this. Risen was a bit of a buggy mess at times, but it was still a hell of a lot better than most games released these days. I'm willing to give PB the benefit of the doubt until they truly screw up a game (the rushed G3 not-withstanding).

    Really? I just remember the infamous fog bug that affected us Nvidia card users. Other than that, I didn't get any other bug. Unless you count the final boss as some kind of design bug.

    Hm, maybe it was just because I played it before the patches came out. I had some problems with random crashes and certain quests not triggering properly later in the game.

    Nope. Risen was quite stable for the entire length. No crashes, no mistriggered quests or other kind of technical errors. So, I blame shitty computers, old drivers or user incompetence.

    Well, fast travel sucks and the new combat system is just bad, but beside those EXTREMELY ANNOYING things I mostly enjoyed the press beta.

    OoOoOo ... so sensitive. Risen wasn't a buggy mess, that's for sure.

    As for incompetent users, why do you think is so far fetched? There are many idiots who play games while in the background Mozilla has a diarrhea of memory leaks, a voice call is active on Yahoo messenger, the disk was not defraged in years, the drivers are old and the trojans are playing football in the Windows folder. In other words, I saw enough cases where expensive hardware was brought to its knees, just because of the shit that was running in the background.
