Gothic

Welcome to the mining colony of Khorinis. War with the local orcs has forced the king to decree that all prisoners must toil in the mines for the good of the kingdom. To keep the prisoners in, the king's mages cast a magical barrier around the colony - but the spell extended the barrier farther than the mages intended. It will be your mission to find a way to destroy the magical barrier and free the innocent from within. How you do it is up to you.

You can join three major camps: the main mining camp, a camp ruled by mages, and a camp of cultists who believe their god will save them. You will create your character through your actions, rather than by choosing a class or stats. If you want to be a mage, you'll have to make the right friends and do the right favours, possibly making powerful enemies along the way.

The unintuitive control scheme in the preview version couldn't tarnish the polished graphics, sweet sound, and immersive feel. If the rest of the game is as interesting as this tiny little taste, then PC RPG fans are in for a treat.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
