Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I'm really looking forward to this, even though I thought Risen 2 was too fragmented in comparison to the first one. The pirate setting wasn't bad, I just wanted the islands to be huge so that I could have had a more fun time exploring. The first Risen felt enormous. Hell, I even loved Gothic 3, without the fan-made patch, despite the tremendous load times each time I died. Anyhow, this looks like it's getting back to the roots, so hopefully exploration is more prominent this time around.
