Obsidian had a Kickstarter campaign to produce a type of RPG not seen much in recent years, and the fundraising was successful. Pillars of Eternity was the result, and a new review perspective is now available for it.
Pillars of Eternity
It’s a quiet news week before the big push of releases before the holiday gaming rush. Chris invites hate mail for his crazy views on Final Fantasy VII and Mario 64. Kelley discovers her friendship isn’t worth an iPad. And Anna Marie wants easy modes to actually be easy. Is that too much to ask? Wait…it IS a bunny!
It’s the RPGCast trio bringing you another week of mild insanity. Kelley struggles because Japanese names are hard. Chris wants to take all the cats camping, but Anna Marie swiftly vetoes the idea. The dad jokes arrive in full force, and everyone’s thinking about vacations.
The Pillars of Eternity have gotten wider as the game launches on Nintendo Switch. RPGamers can now play the Kickstarter success on the go.
Pillars of Eternity II is already heading to Nintendo Switch, alongside other consoles, later this year. Before that, however, Switch owners are getting a chance to play through the first game.
After over 77,000 Kickstarter backers contributed to Obsidian’s campaign, a new title named Pillars of Eternity came to pass. We have quite a bit to say about this title that deliberately evokes the PC RPGs of a now-bygone era.
