PB sigh they just never got the point of marketing. I remember when the Risen games were barely promoted outside of Germany. Just because US critics were harsh.

Man, just looking at this guy playing Elex 2 has really made me miss the exploration in PB games. I think it's second to almost none. Exploring everything systematically, and picking up everything. So much fun.

I'm watching the stream now. I think it looks only marginally better than Elex 1, but I'm fine with that.

I'm guessing it's been a very long time since you've played the Gothic games.

Yeah, and never really got into the Risen ones. They’re still on my list.

None of them? If you enjoyed Gothic, you should at least play Risen. It does a good job of capturing that same kind of atmosphere. Risen 2 & 3 are more hit or miss, but they have their positives.

Yeah, I don't really plan on seriously starting Elex before Risen. No idea when though.

No need to play them in order since they're completely unrelated. Just go with what you're more in the mood for. (fantasy vs post-apoc)

I know but, generally I just go in the order of release. This also helps avoid any quality of life mechanics they might have introduced in later ones, that I’m gonna miss/notice in earlier ones. Anyway, it’s not a big deal. I’ll see what tickles my fancy at that moment.

No, we don't.

I guess the main character won't be customizable? That would be a shame, because I really dislike the Elex2-Jax.

I could be tempted to play Elex 2 if the main character was customizable, but yeah.

It depends on what you are looking for.

I generally want the stories I play to be about me and my character, reflect my choices and my failings. I'm much less interested in being told the story of some random cliche dude I can't relate to. I do understand there is an audience for that though, but I consume that kind of stuff in another format - movies and series.

Just not for me, but hopefully it'll be a better game than Elex 1 for those who enjoy it.

What you don't like the bald action hero look from the 80's?

Man I would love if PB would allow you to customize Jax but they never will. Now why do I say this? Well given their past track record male bald action is the preference.

Maybe hair is to much as I've watched videos on how complicated hair is in games.

We could page Joxer for his opinion as he loves NVIDIA hair-works.

This is what he'd look like with modern hd graphics.




Anyway your correct but bald or shaved head was the industry standard at one point.

Hahaha
Where did you find that?

I was just kidding by the way if the smiley didn't make it clear.
Not really bothered as long as the exploration is good.

Someone on the Gothic reddit did a procedurally generated image.

Link - https://www.reddit.com/r/worldofgoth…ersion_of_the/

It was inspired by the new remake.

He's just missing the pony tail.

Well, this guy looks much better then Elex2-Jax, who just looks unsympathic to. It's the first time I'm having problems with a PB hero.

If anyone is wondering, the gameplay footage there was taken from Gronkh's Twitch stream, so if you already saw that, there isn't anything new.
