    Whoa, that looks terrible!Like, I'm not trolling or anything, but that honestly looks more like a follow-up to Gauntlet than to Baldurs Gate. There doesn't seem to be any strategy to the fights - enem...

    @shiro_l: Definitely sounds like Braid. Although the hidden stars were related to a different ending altogether!

    I'd probably notch FF7 down a notch or two (judging from my current playthrough), but overall it's a great list.Final Fantasy VI definitely deserves that number one slot though. Truly a masterpiece of...

    @Halo2-Best-FPS: It's funny, but the bear cave situation is actually one of the signs that Pillars is a great RPG:(1) It's a sign that the developers won't hold your hand. Can you imagine Bioware or ...

    I've only put about 3 hours into it, but Pillars for me as well. It's exactly what I'd hoped it would be.

    3 hours in now. The game is everything I wanted it to be and more - essentially Baldurs Gate 2 with a splash of Torment's writing and tone.

    Played an hour or so. I'm in love. It's like they painstakingly handcrafted the spirit of the Infinity Engine games stone by stone.But...it's almost 5am, so I should maybe sleep a bit. Can't appreciat...

    I'd keep an eye out for a Gamespot review...but I have a feeling that Kevin Van Ord will be reviewing this, and he only just got off Bloodborne the other day.So....GS review this time next week?

  • Planeforger posted a message in the forum topic Pillars of Eternity Hype/Review Thread (Hype=8) MC=92. on the System Wars board

    Pillars now has a 92 score on Metacritic, after nine reviews.I'm guessing it has to go down from there...but I'm really secretly hoping that it goes up.*edit* Up to 93!

    It's great to see that, across all of these reviews, bugs are barely mentioned (if at all).So that's three well-polished Obsidian releases in a row. Can we finally drop the "they make broken games" st...
