    Tags: Piranha Bytes; Risen 3: Titan Lords

    Piranha Bytes' next game, which is known to have been in development for a while now, has been revealed as Risen 3: Titan Lords. It will be formally announced in the next issue of the German PC Games magazine.

    [​IMG]
    Judging by these leaked screenshots, the game will see a return to a more standard medieval setting. Other than that, we know nothing about it.

    Oh good, another game to crush me under the continued realization that no one will ever make something like Gothic 2 again.

    One look at the hero is enough to convince you never to play another of their games ever again.

    I beat Gothic 3. I don't hate it, but it's nowhere near as good as G2 by any objective measure. Also 'no one will make X again' sort of precludes including things that have already been created.

    I really enjoyed Risen... it wasn't bad. Say what you will, complain about this and that, but overall, it was an enjoyable linear progression system.

    Though, after risen 2, I think this will be a worthless pile of shit that only someone too fucking stupid to tie their own shoe would find to be a good game. I hope they prove me wrong, but... I know they won't. So.. They can fuck off!

    Risen 1 was good (except for the shit ending but PB games have always had shit bosses/endings). Risen 2 was poor even for a generic arpg.

    Risen 1 was good mainly because it was a shameless Gothic clone with more sensible controls, I didn't even bother playing 2 and I don't have the best expectations for this one

    Can you even create a "clone" of your own game?

    Veeery edgy but let's get some perspective here.

    Risen 2 was a decline game compared to Risen 1 or Gothic 2. But saying it was a worthless-pile-of-shit-crime-against-humanity-genocidal-atrocity-dry-rape game is just trying hard to fit in. And being retarded.

    Published in 2012 It was still miles better than all the phlegm passed for RPG those days like ME3 or DA2. REading all the hate for R2 makes me absolutely sure a good portion of those "critics" made up their minds about the game long before they actually played it. If they played it at all.

    Now that's dealt with let's hope the next thing is a true "going back to roots" in all its PB glory because lord knows they don't make gaimz like Gothic 2 anymore.

    I... I want to believe. I want to.

    But there is no faith left.

    Please prove me wrong PB; but I fear you cannot.

    You are arguing the taste of a dried up hamburger that has a moldy bun and rotting lettuce compared to that of shit smothered over some peta bread. Yes, I realize that Risen 2 was better form than the complete and utter shit that is common today, but seriously, if all we have is to argue over quality based on the criteria of not being as shitty as what is current in the market, well... we might as well pass the gun around and be done with it. Risen 2 was shit... not terrible compared to having your testicles drawn up through your mouth and then put in a nut cracker, but... well... seriously... what is the fucking point after that?

    Risen 2 wasn't shit. I'd call it mediocre to poor. It certainly wasn't Arcania bad.

    I picked up Risen 2 a few months after it came out, so many people here had already formed an opinion, and I expected the worst. It actually wasn't quite as bad as I was expecting, but it was a thoroughly mediocre game that failed to deliver on any of the qualities that made previous PB games stand out. The one thing it had going for it was a slightly less overused setting, but that's not enough on its own; after all, Gothic 1 had the most interesting setting out of either series, but it's not the one that constantly makes top (A)RPG lists.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up:
