    Just wanted to let y'all know that Pillars of Eternity is now on console (at least the PS4). If I wasn't so stingy, I would definitely pick it up. Maybe one of you guys could try to sell it to me (though I doubt it. College ain't cheap).

    Definetely worth picking it up! It is amazing, AMAZING I say. Made by the same fine folks who made Fallout New Vegas, with the help of Tim Cain, the creator of Fallout. Superb writing, great companions, characters and story, beautiful world and fun party based gameplay. I'm hoping I'll bring some Pillars of Eternity content to the Vault soon, but right now I want to play, lol.

    Here's the launch trailer, back when it was only on PC. It's the best of the bunch, in my opinion.

    And here's a little insight on the production and history of Pillars of Eternity/Obsidian. Obsidian was dangerously close to bankruptcy at the time, so this documentary really makes you understand the struggles of the industry and game development, especially when it comes to small studios, and it just shows how actual passion going into a game looks like. It truly warms the heart.

    I've never really played a party-based RPG (besides Paper Mario), but this one seems pretty neat. That's cool that you want to create some content for this game, since the original creator of Fallout is involved. 

    I haven't played a single player game in what feels like forever, so I might consider picking this up on sale.

    Have you been playing the game all that often since release John? Been thinking about getting it for console ever since I saw your post here about it but haven't entirely decided yet. If you've played it much (or if anyone else has played the console version) let me know about what you think of it.
