Screenshot of the Week #31: Avatar?!

                Pillars
of Eternity was released this week (finally!!!) and I have been playing it like
crazy. I have spent over 50 hours in the game from Thursday until today and I think
I completed about 65 – 70% of the overall progression. Pillars of Eternity is
everything I wanted it to be and I rarely say something like this about a game.
The nostalgic design made specifically to look like an Infinity Engine game with
beautiful 2D graphics and the captivating gameplay and smartly presented story,
make this game feel like a memory from a different time for RPGs when the genre
was more about the value of role-playing and less about marketing and how much a
game would sell. I could write a lot about this game, but there is no point in
doing that since my next review will cover it (another gigantic review I bet).
                Besides
waiting for Pillars of Eternity and playing it, I haven’t done much else in
terms of gaming this week and this doesn’t come as a surprise for, as I haven’t
been so hyped about a game in years. It is common for me to take time off work
to play the titles that I expect to be the best of the year, but it is uncommon
to get so anxious about an upcoming game. Being hyped is not a good thing as
most of the time it leads to disappointment (and pre-orders…), but not this
time!
Jake Sully, is that you?!
                As I was
expecting, if I couldn’t get my articles done in time before Pillars of Eternity
release, I won’t have a chance to finishing them after, so I had to postpone a
little the last two parts of my article about best male characters in video
games. I promise I will recover for these couple of slow months in April with
more reviews and a new type of articles (!!!).

In the meantime, please share my articles and follow me on Steam and on Twitter!!
Thanks!!!
