Is anybody interested in this: Pillars of Eternity. It's an RPG similar to old style games such as Baldur's Gate, and made by Obsidian who made Fallout: New Vegas.

The game certainly appeals to me, Rowan, so long as someone will come up with a "God Mode" for it dance

This is a game that I'm eagerly anticipating grin I just hope that they get both game play and story to be top notch.

Looking forward to it-any game that has a similarity to Baldur's Gate will always get my attention. Pre-ordered on Steam.

I am waiting to see how this one turns out. It looks like the great, old Bioware games. My fingers are crossed that it turns out well and can combine the story and gameplay into something enjoyable.

I just read a couple of reviews of this game and both said that the game was outstanding.

I pre-ordered it yesterday. I will happily be a guinea pig to try it out. Hope it's as good as it sounds.

I can't wait to hear what you think about it. I hope you enjoy it. I also read that at least one expansion pack is planned. wave

Well I downloaded Pillars last night and have played through the beginning couple of quests. I like the graphics and the game play. The game is going to be really good and is pretty much another Baldurs Gate.

As in Baldurs Gate, you have to read most of the dialogue. This was, to me, the biggest disadvantage in playing the Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale & Neverwinter Nights series as reading text is not one of my strong points. I have to really concentrate to read the smaller fonts in the game so the games with all voice acting appeals to me the most. I will persevere and struggle through it. Not that there isn't voice acting it's just the dialogue from you main character and the companions and a lot of quest dialogue is text.

Anyway it's pretty much like playing a newer and improved Baldurs Gate.

There is also a Walkthrough already at Gamepressure
