We discuss the only shining light in a year that really heckin’ sucked: our favourite games of 2016. Join us as we banish the bad thoughts and focus on the good ones in our end-of-year round-up.
This week on the podcast, we’re flying solo! We’re reviewing just the one game this time, but what a game it is. Divinity: Original Sin is the latest in the Divinity series by Larian Studios, makers of traditional RPGs. D:OS not only has excellent acronym, but it’ll give you all kinds of nostalgiagasm for the days of Baldur’s Gate, Planescape Torment and Neverwinter Nights. We’ll also be taking a look at difficulty in games: why are there so many games that are hand-holding these days?
If you’re having trouble getting into Divinity: Original Sin, here’s a pretty great guide to some of the less obvious game mechanics, and some general tips for beginners.
