The gang at Deep Silver sure do have a flair for the dramatic when it comes to their trailers, as evidenced once again by the most recent promotional video for Risen 2: Dark Waters. There's so much intrigue and adventure suggested by the footage and character voice-overs. I have to say, it looks pretty sweet.

There isn't exactly a shortage of pirate characters as leads in role-playing games, but it's nice to see what appears to be a more serious take on them. It's not a kid with a tail or airship captains locked in combat. Just good, old-fashioned, disgusting pirates, the way they were meant to be. Yes, please.

Review: Risen 2: Dark Waters

The original Risen was a curious little beast. In a genre so used to empowering the player, letting one live out heroic fantasies in a world full of treasure, choice, and magnificent deeds, Risen was quite prepared to strip y...more

Console versions of Risen 2 hit with a delay

The PC release of Risen 2: Dark Waters is nearly upon us and it's being followed, for once, by the console versions rather than the other way around. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions was originally slated for late May,...more

Risen 2: Dark Waters is looking cheery in new screenshots

I'll say one thing for the Risen series -- it's not afraid of a little color. The pirate-themed sequel might be violent and gritty, but at least its violent grittiness will get a tan, thanks to the bright sun and tropical col...more

ESRB censors the red on Risen 2 box art

The ESRB has made Deep Silver remove a red stain from Risen 2: Dark Waters' box art. This stain will go from red to turquoise, owing to the North American rating board's stance on cover imagery that could represent blood.&nbs...more

Preview: What to expect from Risen 2's Treasure Isle DLC

"Aaaargh!" is an exclamation often associated with pre-order and "day one" bonus downloadable content. You end up with an extra character, skin, or a weapon or two, often followed by Internet outcry when some of that content ...more

Sailing the high seas in Risen 2: Dark Waters

Ahoy matey! This here be a videogame about pirates, ARRR! OK, I promise I won't any more pirate jokes, but it's going to be difficult. Risen 2: Dark Waters brings the well-crafted role-playing of Risen into a Caribb...more

Preview: Risen 2

The original Risen was pretty well-received when it came to the PC version. The Xbox 360 port? Not so much. Piranha Bytes is well aware of that, so it is developing the PC and console versions of Risen 2 side b...more

Risen 2: Dark Waters gets a really epic teaser trailer

Here's a really nice teaser trailer for Risen 2: Dark Waters. This minute-and-a-bit of footage is more exciting than anything I found in my first (and only) hour of the first game. So, that's a good start! I'm pretty keen on...more

Dragon Age: Inquisition pushed to November

Battlefield Hardline, and now Dragon Age: Inquisition -- it's delay day at Electronic Arts. BioWare has moved Inquisition from October 7 to November 18 (Nov. 21 in Europe). Considering how stupidly packed with high-profile re...more

Persona Q coming November 25, let's loop the opening until then

Persona Q, the chibi 3DS amalgam of Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, has a North American release date: November 25. The opening is still amazing. The premium edition is pretty nice, too. Shadow of the Labyrinth has won me over since its announcement -- or maybe it's just the dearth of Persona -- so I'm pretty ready.more
