Promises 'favorite elements' from Gotchic and Risen 1
Jul 23
Piranha Bytes went off in a different direction with its pirate-centric Risen 2: Dark Waters and that didn't sit well with some series fans. For the next game, Risen 3: Titan Lords, the studio claims it has gone back to its ... read

Risen 3's Demon Hunters faction sounds like the one to side with


Or just form an alliance with everyone for completion's sake
Jul 17
First came the CGI trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords, and now, screenshots. The one above? My favorite of the pack by a wide margin. Some of the others are oddly blinding. The game features three factions and one of them is ca... read

Here's the extended CGI trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords that was first teased last month. I still don't know how Brittany managed to write that many words covering it, but now I'm thinking about What Dreams May Come, again,... read

Risen 3's teaser trailer looks vaguely like Dante's Inferno


Teaser? I hardly...consider this a good teaser
Apr 18
The official teaser trailer for Risen 3: Titan Lords is out now, and it involves a lot of pretty CG animation and generic combat. It's got all the hallmarks of a traditional Western RPG: darkness, big swords, and copiou... read

The DTOID Show: Rayman Origins 2 & Arkham City GOTY


Apr 23
Hey gang! It's us. Again. I'm sorry Tara's not here, but she's still at Coachella apparently. Dear lord today has been stressful and miserable. Anthony's nice enough to be a substitute guest host, but damn. Just not the same... read
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... read feature

Console versions of Risen 2 hit with a delay


Apr 20
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,... read

Risen 2: Dark Waters is looking cheery in new screenshots


Apr 03
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... read

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 sug... read
"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 ... read feature

Pirates -- the swashbuckling sort -- are pretty great. Videogames are pretty great too; the good ones, anyway. For some unfathomable reason, these two things don’t come together as frequently as I would like. Fortunatel... read feature

Risen 2: Dark Waters gets a really epic teaser trailer


Aug 10
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... read

Have some bright n' breezy Risen 2 screens


May 12
It's nice to see a dark fantasy RPG that isn't so ... dark. I'm really digging the sunny screenshots for Risen 2, and it's also great to see that the twisted monster design from the first game is still intact.  The first... read
