    Has anyone played Divinity: Original Sin 2? I'm deciding between that and the new Pillars of Eternity. Don't have a lot of experience with isometric DnD RPGs.

    Divinity is 100x better than pillars. I hate pillars. Turn based for RPGs is much better from a play store experience. The story is good and immersive in Divinity and it is seemingly endless in what you can do.

    Mafia 3 is a Political correct joke, a buggy mess, and idiotic and mediocre unoriginal story and the reason the sales went in trash. Politics have no part in games unlike most of propaganda in entertainment industry, gamers like to play for the sake of gaming.
    I'm so glad Daniel Varvara quit 2k and started its company warhorse after success Mafia 2, which outsold Mafia 3 by miles.
    His Kingdom come deliverance which happend to be the best simulator and history accurate game out there sold one million copies
    https://www.vg247.com/2018/02/22/kingdom-come-deliverance-has-sold-1-million-copies/
    And has lot of positive reviews in steam



    What I'm playing : Wall Street Raider by ronin soft, Football manager 2018,ARMA 3, Geopolitical simulator 4 Power & Revolution, cities skylines, mafia 2,Kingdom come deliverance .

    The amount of butthurt in the comments about them adding female characters to the game is absolutely hillarious.

    Christ. Just don't select a female avatar at the character select screen if it bothers you that much.

    well women were generally not on the front lines of ww2, and disabled people were sent home also few black guys with katanas ;D

    this is both silly and pushing identity politics to the game, and I'm glad people start to see through that- which is very heart warming idd!

    Not to mention everything in this video looks bad besides graphics

    Game developers should start catering to their target audience - nerds and men in 20s/30s not SJWs and women who do not play these games, unless ofc they want to see backlash like that and reduced revenue and well this is EA so fuck them anyway

    Politics have no part in gaming and the reasion we seeing major backlash against EA bioware and many other gaming companies. Their sales are trashed, they have the most negative comments around by their own clients and they are locked on their own platforms rather than selling in steam where they would have trashed in comments. They are selling own political points and agendas by hiring these shills who clearly don't give to f about gaming on top of adding pay to win systems adding further fuel to the fire. The are making buggy mediocre games and than hyping with usual graphic marketing and paying gaming magazines to hype it up. Many people are leaving big companies and relying more and more on indie developers who carter to gamers, example include iron horse with kingdom come deliverance, star citizen which have been backed by gamers and sold million of copies.

    Amazing story amigo, do tell it again.
    Don't let facts get in the way, since there is "no" profit to be made in gaming industry, is a "small" market ,"nor" self serving politics are involved by AAA mainstream studios. By the way this is same "neutral" journalism with "no " conflict of interest involved in "not" marketing these same games all the times :

    E3 came and went and Mortal Kombat 11 wasn't announced. I haven't been this disappointed about the lack of a game showing in a while.

    Oh well. Last of Us 2 looks amazing! So we got that.
