Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Review!

deadfire playerexperience 2560x1440

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is the sequel to the Pillars of Eternity Computer Role Playing Game (RPG).  This review is based on 70 hours of play on medium difficulty.  My characters are now 18th level and I’m approaching the end game.  I purchased the game in December during the Steam Holiday sale without buying additional content.  I’ve also played Pillars of Eternity 1 to completion.

In Pillars of Eternity 2 (Pillars 2) your character wakes up from a coma on a ship.  In Pillars 1, the dungeons below your keep had a massive human statue made of adra.  The god Eothas animated the statue, destroyed your keep, killed most of your friends and servants, stole part of your soul, and marched off to the Deadfire Islands.  You are even more of a plaything of the gods as they order you to find out what Eothas is up to and stop him if necessary.  Nothing comes easy for a Watcher (someone who can see souls and talk to dead people).

What’s Gus Playing?: Iron Harvest 1920+

IH1

The gaming universe of Scythe, set in an alternate Eastern European 1920-era, is right up my street.  Replete with steampunk, First World War tech and mechs, it is all I could ever ask for in a game.

When KING Art Games announced the Kickstarter campaign for the directly-related Iron Harvest PC Real Time Strategy game, I immediately contributed as much cash as I could afford.  I also recently bought Scythe: Digital Edition PC game on Steam, which has admittedly, so far, been a lot for me to wrap my brain around.

What’s Gus Playing?: Pike & Shot: Campaigns!

Apologies for that four month break in publishing. Rest assured I was gaming during that time but well…stuff gets in the way sometimes. I will make a strong effort to resume a regular weekly schedule of What I’m Playing from here on out, and will attempt to throw in some other, additional, screen shot features during the week too. It’s what Jarhead and I like to call a ‘resumption of operations.’

Gus Arcanum 1 SPLASH

By: Lloyd Sabin,

So, without further adieu, I am currently playing – Pike & Shot: Campaigns. Specifically, the Gustavus Adolphus campaign, which could also be labeled as a Thirty Years War campaign. Players can choose to play as either the Swedes or the Holy Roman Empire (read: Germans, of a kaleidoscope of different types).

Tyranid Invasion heading to Gladius Prime!

There goes the planet. Slitherine has really gone and done it this time. As if Gladius Prime did not have enough trouble with Space Marines, Astra Militarum, Orks, Necrons and all the man (and xenos) eating flora and fauna? Now, the Tyranids will be crashing the party and the planet will never be the same.

Little is known about this DLC package set to be released shortly after the new year in January, but one thing is for sure, Tyranid are ravenous and nearly unstoppable. Will you be able to stop them from eating the planet?
