Okay, so last night my buddy and I were fighting a bunch of fire monsters in a burning field. We bottlenecked the big boss using fire elementals (that they couldn't damage) while he stealthed behind them to kill the magic totem that was reviving them all.

I made it rain (heheheheh) on the battlefield to weaken them, and then froze the ground at my feet. Since I needed to use ice magic and I have the perk to make it easier to cast magic of the same element you're currently standing on, standing on my own ice patch while hasted had me throwing around ice spells three times a turn.

The strategy and terrain awareness in this game are un-freaking-believably good. Pillars of Eternity suddenly has a lot to live up to.

Surprising no one, I've been rolling a Warlock, and I really like it. Feels tactical, and it's oh-so-delightful to glide in and use the super, wreckign everything below you. The glide move really sells it for me, though. Love the extra mobility, and plus it makes me feel like I'm playing Tribes.

I felt like a badass playing with my buddy last night. Was fighting the boss at the lighthouse with all his adds. Buddy's melee, so I used the poison and water to make a stun/poison cloud to separate all of them from the boss, then used teleport to drop my partner right next to the boss, where he sliced and diced him unopposed. I adore the level of strategy in using the world to your advantage.

I've held off on a grounded mode replay for the PS4 version. Doesn't sound like it's for everyone, but I'm going to eat that up.

....kinda how I feel about Divinity, Dave!

I am going to rail you on the podcast.

I disagree completely. I found the gameplay and survival elements to be excellent and don't at all think it was a purely cinematic experience. It was VERY good in the latter category, but I'm replaying it because I enjoy the combat and the sneaking and the survivaling. Cool if you don't feel the same way, but saying it as if it's objective fact is not something I can get behind.

Finished this the other day. I really like it, but I think the lack of difficulty really hurts how memorable the game is in comparison to its influences. I can't remember any of the fights with the Order because they're all so easy and don't really require much effort. It's a shame because their designs are great and the level design is really solid, but without the tough challenge to make you learn the levels and patterns, individual moments are a little more forgettable than they should be.

The last couple levels are really great though.

I see it as a mixed bag, too.

A mixed bag of the greatest PS3 games ever.

Got it yesterday, played it coop with my friend for like three hours. Utterly fantastic.

"Don't cop out like fuckers and set it during the First Contact War (retconning things into oblivion). You made your shitty ending bed, sleep in it and tell us what happens next."

I love you

*fist bump*

You're far too kind. Thanks!

If anyone wants their own beta code (as in, not assigned to a system yet) I have an extra one to give away.

I'd be happy to take it off your hands for PS4 :D

I vastly prefer the subscription model. Many devs earn the money considering the amount of playtime you can get out of these games (especially WildStar and FFXIV), and with a sub model you know the game is built around the experience of playing it and exploring it rather than with the intent of being able to add lots of microtransaction "hooks" and making it feel less like a gameworld and more like a "service."
