The lights are on
I seem to be the only person who found the entire premise a lie. Supposedly a "pirate" RPG, how can the game be totally devoid of any naval/maritime activities!?! I mean, you can't even swim. The world map looks like it's 75% water, I spent the first few hours becoming a member of a pirate crew and virtually every piece of promotional art I've seen features ships and I don't get even something as simple as a "Pirates! GOLD" style ship combat mini-game?!? And in a interview I read, the developer said they make RPGs, not naval combat games, so they were sticking to what they do best. Seriously!? To me, without naval combat, no game, movie, book, etc can claim to be "pirate". I was so excited when I got home with it on release day. After playing for 7 hours with no maritime activities what-so-ever, I found the mentioned dev interview. I got up early the next morning to trade it in for a copy of Dragon's Dogma...a MUCH better action/rpg.
