Elex anyone?

By Piranha Bytes, the guys that did Gothic and Risen.

Interesting. Open game with some obvious Gothic DNA. About 10 hours in. Liking it. Takes a while to set strong enough to actually get anywhere.

Not yet but maybe, thanks for the tip. Is it like Skyrim? I liked Skyrim.

Ever play The Witcher 3? How are the graphics?

Yes, like skyrim. Skyrim is like gothic which was made by ...

Played the Witcher franchise. meh. Sorta left me cold. I finished #1. Never quite finished the others.

Graphics are very good. We play it on pc which is has an hdmi thingie to a 55" TV so you do "see" it.

Things that "are": you play for a while and then join a faction. Very Gothic-like. I am 10-15 hours in and have not seen the need to do so yet.

Things I like: Completely open. You can't go too far at sea or you get "reset" to the shore. There is no weight carry limit.

Things I am not crazy about: Too many attributes that you can raise. Sorta needlessly complex.

As I said, I like it.
