In yet another “Reccomend an RPG” another thread, Captain_C mentions something about Gothic 3 being the best of the Gothic line of games, with all the kinks worked out.
Yeah… let’s just say I remember when this game finally arrived. I was pretty excited. In fact, I was eager. But, having those niggling doubts from, say, being burned several times by idiot developers or publishers screwing things up, I waited. And I DID NOT LIKE what what I saw. The game was a buggy, useless disaster. Even the demo was horribly unfun to play, with loose uncontrollable “controls” and a messy interface and terrible animation and - well, it sucked. And reviews were merciless. Heck, the Publisher (who owned the rights) actually fired the Developer with the a kind variant on “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, you warthog-faced inspid little coke-heads”.
OK, they said “We’re going in a different direction.” But it means the same thing.
Anyway, did someone patch the bejeezus out of that bad boy? Is it now playable? And what about The Witcher? Can I actually play that game and do something with it’s re-released version. The original’s load times finally got to me, although the spotty dialogue and bad inventory didn’t help. I liked the game as a whole, and it was arguably the most original game to come out in a long while.
