PREVIEWSPillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.
Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...
I must preface this by stating some personal facts. I am not the most hard core gamer, but I love games. They are like my movies or tv. When i have the time to do such things, I prefer my computer and games. Morrowind is a game like some would compare the movies "2001: A space Odyssey", "Dr. Strangelove" or "Forrest Gump." It is a filthy dirty classic. I am extremely biased because I always wanted a game like this. I read reviews of arena or dagger fall, but I feared them too dated to play. Then I heard about this game. I played it. and today I rank it up there with my all time favorite games. I'm drunk so I'll tell you my favorite games (series) in no particular order. Diablo, Heroes of might and magic, Age of empires (not including three), The SidCiv Series plus AC, Sonic the Hedgehog, Alladin (genesis version); but you get my point. DISCLAIMER!!!... It is 2010 now. Things have gotten dated. Oblivion is even starting to show it's years. To be blunt, if you want this game to be pretty or the combat to be fun, treat it like you would any butterface and drink a few. Or, stay sober, stop being a graphics whore and delve into this sweet delicious honeyfilled world. Don't just rush in for an hour or two then bounce. Stay a while, and don't try to break the game (since it is pretty easy to do after you have played it for 40 plus). UGHT! so good my friends, fellow citizens, both of my country and my world, If you have the time, Sit down, and munch this ****.
