I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Gothic 3 Screenshots



 

GENRE: Role-Playing
PLATFORM: PC
RELEASE DATE: Fall 2006
PUBLISHER: Aspyr Media, JoWood
DEVELOPER: Piranha Bytes
 
Gothic 3, the latest entry in the globally successful roleplaying
saga, offers players a nonlinear, open-ended roleplaying
adventure with an enthralling story that
presents an extremely detailed simulation of environment
and human behavior.
 
Players saved their home island Khorinis from the forces
of evil in Gothic and Gothic 2. Now it is time to travel to
the realms of the mainland, where invading Orcs have
enslaved the human kingdom. There are only a few free
humans living in the nearly uninhabitable icy north and in
the southern desert, and a handful of rebels hiding in the
mountainous forests of Midland.
 
Players can choose to join the rebellion, serve the Orcish
usurpers, or work for their own ends. This decision will tip
the balance of power, deciding the outcome of the last war
to save humanity. There is no simple linear story in Gothic
3 – every game will be different and unique, with the
player ultimately deciding the fate of humankind.
 
Features
 
• Huge free-roaming, hand-crafted world with no loading
once you are in the game
• All new combat system that allows unprecedented
control over melee attacks
• Clear, non-linear objectives within the main story allow

• Unique class-free character development -- the absence of
rigid character classes means players can choose to train
their character with a wide variety of military and
magical powers
• Soundtrack by the Bochum Symphony Orchestra, a world
class orchestra from Bochum, Germany
