Indeed, that is unfortunate.

I actually found the annotations helpful even given my meager knowledge of German.

Okay, I just have to have that life-size statue of the Nordic Warrior in that one shot.
Who wants to storm PB HQ with me in a covert mission to extract said statue?

Anyone?………



Anyone?…………………..

Do you think they'll question it on the plane … we'll have to split the extra seat and lump it around like 'Weekend at Bernies'

-eh-

The comments made on the screenshots just explains what everyone is doing, like 'here's 5 minutes for lunch' or something like that. Nothing much more than
this.

Is it just me, or do these guys look relieved to be free of Gothic and JoWood?

Yeah, those PBs - they can never get it right!
Stupid bummers!

… while weīre at "unfortunate".
Your plan might turn out just the same.
Along with disclosing infos on the location of their lair, they stated to have taken extensive security measures to keep off anybody trying to sneak in with similar intents as you.

So in really wonder about your resources…

Interesting and… revealing photo series. So basically a day at Piranha Bytes consists mostly of cigarette and coffee breaks. That definitely explains why they don't get crap done anywhere near in time .

Yeah, I guess it's a qualification for a job at PB: smoker = yes. I know you Europeans like your butts, but that office looked like a throw-back to 1970.

I can't wait to see the next game that these guys do. I don't care if they don't make the next Gothic game. I would love to see them create a new IP.

I'd love to work in an office environment like that. Where'd the dog come from? Did anyone else notice that sections look like a house as opposed to an office?

We need some German Feng Shui in Chicago.

I see this as a PR exercise in portraying a relaxed, friendly family image - It's to let JoWood & Co' see that things have turned out fine after all.

It is a house. Behind their garden is a cemetary. Thatīs why itīs so green.

The coffee machine is on the 1st floor. Two rooms with beds on the 2nd.

Ugh. In an environment where everybody smokes? No thanks…

But then again it looked very homy and cosy. :-)
