Our top pick of the week?

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
09/05/18

We love a deep tactical role playing game, I mean we put Divinity: Original Sin II in our top 10 games for last year. Well just like Divinity Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire was funded through crowd sourcing. In fact it was the biggest crowd sourcing success in three years.

If you’re looking for deep tactics and lore as well as plenty of action and repercussions, get ready for this one. It’s going to keep you busy for a while.
