Awesome stuff, Cappy! All of it looks great - the armies, Adrianya - and your fully armored sigfig looks downright badass.

 

BTW, that berserker's chest decal was from a weird commission I got, and then included in the Patreon packages, but it works great for that purpose! :lol:

It's an opposite version of this pic from last year, in case you missed it:

So, this is awesome: Obisidian is adding a TURN-BASED MODE to Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire! I knew there was a reason I've waited so long to play it! :lol: It's currently in beta: https://eternity.obs...based-mode-beta

 

Some deets:

 

They are probably doing this in preparation for the console release. It's great news to me, since despite my undying love for Baldur's Gate, I never found the combat in PoE to be half as fun. In fact, it always felt like a confusing mess. But all of my favorite of the Kickstarter RPG's (Shadowrun, Banner Saga, Divinity: Original Sin) have been turn-based, so maybe this will make POE2 more fun.

 

Speaking of Baldur's Gate, another recent news item is that Beamdong will be bringing their Baldur's Gate (1&2) and Neverwinter Nights "Enhanced" Editions to consoles. I couldn't care less, but there it is.

 

Also here's an Outer Worlds video:

 

Might as well toss a Kingdom Come: Deliverance one up here too (language warning):

Also Halo 3 is a really nice-looking game that holds up really well in the Master Chief Collection. The specific shaders they use on the various metallic surfaces have a great look to them

I've always loved that about Halo 3 - just the look of the Spartan armor and the metal surfaces and vehicles and everything. They had this really great, sleek look that's aged amazingly well over the years. Much better than the overly-detailed, gaudy stuff in the later games.

Anyway, I played Halo you guise and I thought it was pretty good. I think I enjoyed the first game the most, now that all's said and done. Something about the gameplay balance, the way the guns felt, the general 'new'ness of fighting all the Covenant enemies for the first time just spoke to me. 1 > 3 > 2 for me.

You came to the right conclusion.
