Default first person rpg, new game Arcania Gothic 4

From what i can tell, the gameplay videos look good, but the story line is what im most interested in, has anyone purchased this yet and feels its worth the 50 dollar price tag?

It's 3rd person (I couldn't figure out how to make it 1st person), and if you're looking for a good story, steer way clear of this one:

TOG Strategy & RPG forums: Arcania Gothic 4 demo discussion

My impressions based on the demo weren't good for story gamers. If you're big on mechanics, loot and some half decent combat then go for it, otherwise probably not. I don't intend to buy it.

I tried to have a crack at it, downloaded the demo - damn thing wants to run on my secondary monitor and no matter what I do, can't stop it. Turn my secondary into my primary, it's still fixated on that damn screen.

From what I did play on a windowed screen, it wasn't bad. Not sure if I'd shell hardearneds on it unless you were a fan of the Gothic series.

If you can wait, I'm sure it'll be half price within 6 months.

that is what I am waiting for (going on sale). I have played the other Gothic series and really like it but inevitably I never get to finish the story due to bugs. However I do like the combat better than Elder Scrolls series which I have played plenty of that since Daggerfall. And the story isn't too bad either though I think their delivery is poor, or at least could be better. That said I still will get it.

Steam Christmas sale for me. I've got more than enough to tide me over until then ...

About 2/3rds of the way through it, it was a nice tie over while waiting for the Minecraft patch and before Fallout was released.
