I've played the first one, but prefer the second. There seems to be fewer battles and more exploration than the first, which i prefer.
Interesting! Let me know when you finish Pillars of Eternity II (in this thread), I'd like to discuss it more, but I don't want to mention any spoilers.
Will do..i like the setting in POE2 and the voice acting is really good (apart from the 'dodgy' English accents in some places).
There's a lot of aspects I really enjoyed about POE2 (have you "discovered" any islands yet? That allow you to do something specific... You will know what I mean if you've found one). :)
Define ... 'Lost.' Neverending Nights - The Neverwinter Machinima that WILL make you laugh!

I recommend doing every side quest you find. :) The lore and such is some of the best things about POE! :D

I was playing Bard's Tale IV (but had a bad experience with the game play, so I yanked that out), and returned to Soul Calibur VI on the XBOX One - doing the custom character storyline, which is proving to be quite fun. (I love the Soul Edge/Soul Calibur series). I have a few other games that I am playing on the console (the latest Marvel Lego one, among a few others - but not very frequently). I've been playing Mass Effect IV since it came out (and that's been awhile now!) - off and on - but it's lacking something. The other Mass Effect games had me so sucked in that I'd rush home and play it till I passed out, and rinse and repeat, till I had it beat in 3 to 7 days. This one is going on a year and some change now, I think?

Excellent, picked this up as well. I've not played the first one, but a friend was at BlizzCon and told me about Destiny 2 being free, so I said, "Why not?" And logged into my BattleNet account and grabbed it.

Ormph. Gotten to the Custom Character Storyline where it requires patience and a lot of skill to defeat the enemies they're tossing your way. Had to put down the controller and walk away from it for a few days!

So I just finished Divinity: Original Sin (Enhanced Edition). It's an excellent game, similar to Bard's Tale 4 except much more polished, amazingly optimized, it's from an overhead view (and your can rotate the camera angle), and even though combat is turn-based, it's not grid-based, so you have a lot more freedom and options. There are also plenty of puzzles, but most of them are more organic (figuring out quests) rather than moving blocks and such.

The game is very in-depth, so it can take a long time to learn it and you'll be confused and lots of the time, and will likely spend hours looking online to see what spells and skills are available (as you level and plan your characters), and figuring out how to craft things. However, that's also the strength of this game (the amount of options). Also, you may end up spending hours just sorting through your inventories, comparing items, deciding what to sell and what to keep and so forth, and then visiting multiple shops in different areas to find see if they have any amazing gear drops...

Anyway, I'll probably start Divinity: Original Sin 2 next...
