Divinity Original Sin - Warning

So...I've really liked this game though it can be a long slog between big, challenging fights. Still, good fun.

However....

I have put a fair chunk of hours into the game and have just had to restart. Apparently you MUST go through [more]

Divinity Original Sin - Multiplayer Co-Op

Hi guys, playing through Divinity and I must say the beginning is rather drawn out. So the idea of replaying it is pretty harsh right now.

Anyway...

Has anyone tried co-op? Is it good? Is it fun?

I have a friend who might [more]

Re: Titanfall: 48 hours trial

48 hours to play as much as you want. I think I managed 10 hours.

Titanfall: 48 hours trial

So Origin now let you try Titanfall for 48 hours. That's too long. I managed to get to level 34, try out all the Titans, all the maps in the base game, all of the game modes (campaign included) and most of the toys. It's a fun man-shoot but there are [more]

Dragon Age: Origins

So....this has come up a lot recently and I thought, "I don't have an RPG in the wheelhouse right now" so I re-installed it and thought, "hell I'll play completely differently". I remembered my dwarven fighter and my human rogue [more]

Re: Holding my breath until these IPs get a sequel.

I never played Half Life. I just physically got sick playing them back then. But I absolutely loved HL2 and the following episodes, though it did take some research to find out wtf was going on.

They have waited too long for the sequel. I [more]

Re: XCOM - Long War Mod EW Beta

I finally got around to playing Enemy Within recently and am close to being done. That game itself has piles of encounters and lots of opportunities to lose soldiers. Somehow I got plasma weapons early and bypassed lasers. That changed things [more]

Re: Mount&Blade Warband Free Weekend

Divinity Original Sin

From CAD:

Should you be playing Divinity: Original Sin?

Hell yeah you should.

I love turn-based tactics games. I love good sandbox RPGs. I love co-op. Divinity: Original Sin has all of these things. It's a CRPG of the

Batman: Arkham Origins

Well, I was having a lot of fun with it and was at something like 46% complete when I went to do the Firefly mission. IIRC that took me automatically through to the final mission and final fight. Game over.

There is something less than [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

Okay, I'm giving up on WINNING it. Clearing Pendor is nigh impossible. But as I searched online for clues I found out all sorts of interesting things I wish I had known earlier.

You can join a knighthood order and do quests for them. That'd [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

You win in the Prophesy of Pendor by defeating the other kingdoms (done), having friendly relations with the noldor (done), killing all independent armies (one left) and destroying all minor factions (one left).

I am so close, but finishing [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

I picked up the Crusader Kings II pack today for $16 at 80% off. It doesn't have all the DLC you suggested and has some you said to avoid but I think it is a good place to start. Your favourite DLC was on for 50% off. If I like the game I can pick [more]

Re: Steam History

So, digging up an old thread I thought I'd see what Steam's sales have done for Steam.

Without posting the details, because they aren't as crazy, I have spent more than $40 on only four games in the past three years. I'm sure my total spent [more]

Time to go completely OT:

I have one and only ONE Game of Thrones question. I ignore all conversation about the show in case I stumble upon a spoiler. I avoid everything. However...

Re: I've got some news to share...

Kaz,

Congratulations! While I'm not the Blizzard-aholic you are I have appreciated your insights and reviews. Even 10 years later I fondly remember our times as a group in Warcraft. I too remember (I think - I'm getting old) dinging 60 in [more]

Re: My Undying Love for Crusader Kings 2

This is what scares the crap out of me with this game. It sounds awesome but the "just one more minute" would keep me constantly up way past my bedtime!

I will fold though, I know it now.
