PoE2 needs a lot more than a turn-based mode to save it, honestly.


My opinion of PoE1 has actually dramatically improved now that I actually finished it (the music is still bland and Avellone's characters are still obnoxious though) and the expansion, which was far better story-wise than the main game, but PoE2...oof. The loss of the NV writers in 2016 really shows. As critical as I am of Chris Avellone, I'd take him over...whatever the hell PoE2's writing is.



EDIT: I had a long rant about the game typed up here but I changed my mind about posting it. The tl;dr: The main story is pointless, the game feels tiny, the writing is peppered with...certain contemporary socio-political undertones, and the companions are annoying.

So it's Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, and it seems like they've basically made Fallout New Vegas 2 in all but name,


All of the major F:NV devs (except one) are no longer at Obsidian.



So don't get too excited. Especially if PoE2's lead writer has a major role.

^So, better music than the first game then? :P


I really want to try PoE2, but I feel like I should go ahead and finish PoE1 first. I'm probably almost there...




And yeah, it got me to finally go back and finish the first game + the White March. Turns out I had actually stopped my original playthrough like...right on the cusp of the endgame, lol.
