Arcania Gothic 4


Arcania A Gothic Tale
-
ArcaniA – A Gothic Tale is set in a rich world that invites the player to explore all of its innumerable attractions and details. Different climate zones, abundant flora and fauna, subterranean vaults, and cities and castles with unique architecture await the adventurous player. Clouds darken the skies, weather effects such as wind and heavy rain influence the game world, keeping it endlessly fascinating with its amazing graphics, day and night cycles, and a stunning display of light and shadow. Wonderfully atmospheric music and top-of-the-line sound effects create a truly immersive playing environment. A multitude of entertaining and challenging quests, challenging combat, mysterious NPC characters and a sophisticated plot guarantee many hours of highly entertaining gameplay. The Southern Islands await!

To say that this game is gorgeous is an understatement. Take a gander at these to showcase what I’m talking about.

The gameplay is similar to Two Worlds so if your enjoying Two Worlds this is something to look forward to. I had the opportunity of trying to play this on PC and its gorgeous, too gorgeous for my pc to handle sadly. I creep along at 23fps but have 2hrs invested in it and can say its high on my wish list. The pc and xbox version are already out while the PS3 version was delayed until March of this year for polishing reasons, those reasons I can handle for a delay. I’m just hoping it wasn’t so badly ported that Sony said no way to their launch last year. I’ll buy it regardless if the funds allow it.

Here’s the destiny Trailer to wet your appetite.

Wondering if I’m the only one looking forward to this gem?

    This looks pretty damn good, reminds me a lot of 2 Worlds 2.

    Minus the multilayer and yes its up there. The pc had a demo at one point so Im praying the ps3 will as well. Maybe someone with an xbox can see if there is a demo on the marketplace.

    Just so everyone knows this game was a massive failure on the PC, and will likely be very similar on PS3. I could list the 1000 reasons at to why this game is terrible, and shouldn’t even be considered an RPG, but pretty much every single review site out there did it for me already.

    I played the demo for this game and it was pure shit.

    Yep, that’s what I’ve read.

    It’s a shame. The previews showed a lot of potential.

    These are my kind of games. Look at way of the samuri 3, awful reviews and is one of my favorites. I always love the titles that bomb in reviews. The pc version is so overly flawed without the hot fix’s and editing the .config. The ps3 version was the only version out of all of them delayed so Im still eagerly awaiting this.

    hmm, it’s funny on some games get such crappy reviews that are sometimes fun to play
