Getting Kobold: Arcania: Gothic 4 E3 Trailer

One day a serial killer is going to be found, and when asked why he did it, he'll say 'I did it to get the XP. They were full of XP'.

So, Gothic 4 trailer, then? I’m ten seconds into this before the voice-over mentions – without any visible trace of irony – “an island under attack by an ancient evil”. I can imagine the debate in the Spellbound office – “Isn’t this completely clichéd nonsense?” “No – you see, this is an island under attack from an ancient evil. Not a land, country, world, etc, etc. We’re actually the new Planescape Torment we’re being that original” “Wait… how big is this island? Because a lot of islands are tiny. Are we talking Australia or are we talking the Isle of Man? Some Islands would be threatened by the average rowdy stag-do.” “Stop worrying! We’re golden! And we’re called ArcaniA! That’s some original typography right there, man.”

Though – er – all that would be in German.

Alec informs me that Islands have always been the Gothic games’ thing, but I’m well past caring. Toodles!
