I really liked how Gothic started: There actually wasn't an overall plot, other than joining one of the camps to survive in the colony. Normally, open world games suffer from the classic "you have to…

Yes, the ending is rather poor. However, the first half of the game is excellent, which is why I still find it strange that so much got changed in Risen 2. Not that Risen 2 was bad, but all the…

Hand placed, no doubt about it. My top loot games are probably:
- BG1-2
- Gothic 1-2
- M&M6-8

They all have hand placed loot, which means exploring every cave, house and corner of the world is…

Yeah, and the reason the questions get asked is to create clicks on a website. That's why BOOBS!!! get covered all the time in the tabloids, but in more serious media like BBC News? Not so much.

That's more down to the focus of the media than developers/writers though. The whole debate about romances and the incredible amount of focus it gets is laughable. The situation is the same as…

Not really. It sounds as if you help the Demon Hunters build up their faction, which makes it sound as if the other factions have other goals and quests. In Gothic 1, the faction choice is mostly a…

The thing is, BioWare makes games that are mainly story driven. Virtually every good story over the years has had some sort of romance, because it's such an important part of human nature. Emotions…

Based on the wording, it sounds as if faction choice could have even bigger consequences than it usually does in PB games. Maybe it's just marketing speak, but it does sound interesting.

Keldorn is fantastic if used right. One of the most overpowered characters in the game, since he's an Inquisitor. They're the best mage killers by far due to their incredibly unbalanced dispel…

Just get it right. Creating a massive game like this takes time, so a delay or two is nothing to worry about.

Exactly. Decent game, but it doesn't live up to the Gothic name.

Yep, and you get a few very powerful items at the start of chapter 3.

Also, when you can spare the money, buy the Robe of Vecna (for Aerie) from Deidre in the Adventurer's Mart (Waukeen's…

Valygar's main strength is his stealth + backstab attacks. Sneak up behind someone and he'll most likely kill them in a single blow. As a regular fighter he's not all that great. Keldorn is much…

Filled it in. Told them to focus on exploration and story. I suspect combat will be very highly rated on average though.

No. Simply advancing by paying 15.000 gold won't lock you out of anything. Just make sure you don't agree to go on a boat when you get asked to.

As for switching around characters: Keep in mind…

I mostly like the companions, as long as they're not too much in the way. I used companions a lot in both Gothic 3 and Risen 2.

Oh would you look at that. The ghost I've seen mentioned is actually Mendoza. That explains Alrik seeing Mendoza in his G3 preview thread. I guess he'll play an important role, as he no doubt has a…

I've never encountered anything. To be safe, stick with the editor's suggestion for new save game name (after you're done adding the item).

Indeed, it probably is for me. Gothic 2 (w/NotR) is the other one at the very top for me. Hard to say which is my all time favorite, but it's certainly one of them.

The easiest way is to simply remove the 3 items and then use a save game editor to add "Flail of Ages +3" in your inventory. Make sure you don't actually add the +4 or +5 version, as that's a ToB…
