Review: Risen 3: Titan Lords Enhanced Edition

The best noir films end on a downer. Whatever great conspiracy the hero came so close to unraveling has come out on top -- the bigwigs in charge have evaded justice and a lot of good people died along the way. But the protagonist got someth...

Risen 3 rises on PS4 in the least-asked-for port yet

Risen 3: Titan Lords was panned by critics on release after the just above average, piratical Risen 2: Dark Waters, but what else does Deep Silver have to release this year with Dead Island 2 losing its developer? It's this "Enhanced Editi...

Piranha wants to go back to its roots for Risen 3

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 Gothic and Rise...

Yes, Risen 3: Titan Lords, I'll watch your CGI trailer

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, when I should ...

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

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 copious amounts of ch...

The DTOID Show: Rayman Origins 2 & Arkham City GOTY

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. I need a good...

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 you of your dign...

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, but Deep Silve...

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 colors.  Thes...

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.  Deep Silver'...

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 appears to be o...

Preview: Swashbuckling and rum drinking in Risen 2

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. Fortunately, Piranha Byte...

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 checking this ...

Have some bright n' breezy Risen 2 screens

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 Risen had a lo...
