Well this was a surprise. This was the free game of the month at some point and has been sitting on my xbone for something like a year. I wanted something quick to play the other day and finally tried it out and it actually turned out to be a ridiculously fun game.
So this was an interesting almost-month of my life. Pillars of Eternity is the new game from Obsidian, a developer made up of former members of Black Isle Studios, where Baldur’s Gate and just about every worthwhile Baldur’s Gate type game like Planescape: Torment, and Icewind Dale and etc. etc. came from. More recently you may know them from their work on Neverwinter Nights 2 or Fallout: New Vegas. In other words, they might know a thing or two about D&D style PC RPGs. Anyway, look, I am a Death Godlike Cipher, who is some kind of weird mix between a rogue and a mind magic sorcerer, who also has a weird crab head.
Baltimore is the latest horror/fantasy saga from Hellboy/B.P.R.D.s Mike Mignola. It is the story of Lord Henry Baltimore, a soldier who runs afoul of a vampire during the first World War.
I’m not generally a fan of the Young Avengers. In fact, before this series I absolutely hated the team and characters.
