Is it short though. I haven't been playing it long and freed two gods.

I've only freed one and played about 14hrs, there's shit loads to do.

There’s loads to do, although you don’t have to. I loved it.

Grabbed Dark Souls 3 for £8 last week (gutted as you can get it with the Witcher 3 for £5 from Game) and I beat the first boss without dying 500 times to do it. Fuck knows what happened there as I didn't even cheese the boss and I beat it first time.

Binned off Divinity, hit a storyline with 3 tough fights in a row. Got through the first two but the third seemed like one of those things you need to find out about to properly strategise for. Anyway it wiped me and when I reloaded I was right back at the start - around 2 hours lost.

 

So, in the bin. Definitely exceeded the 'life's too short' threshold there. That kind of thing is great if you give me a checkpoint, but no time for that kind of iterative experience.

I've got past the second boss and now in the Undead Village. The bosses seem to be easier than some of the NPCs which are tough. Great game so far though, really into the Souls formula now. Not sure how a more open world Elden Ring will work in comparison to the tighter maps in previous games.

Yeah, it's ace. The bosses take some time to ramp up, but the variety is great. You're right about the other tougher enemies. That red-eyed knight before Vordt is a proper nob.

Yeah. Took an age, especially as the Knights in that area are bastards too if not good at parrying or slow on the block.

You can save whenever you want in Divinity, can't you?

Yes, but I'm spoiled by autosaves and, considering the game has autosave, it should save!

 

(basically I'm spoiled and throwing my toys out the pram)

Ha, fair enough. I just hit quicksave before I go and do something stupid, I never trust autosaves. Not sure if it's Original Sin 2 you were playing, but I just started that last weekend, and it'll keep up to 25 auto- and quicksaves, which is nice. The only thing it's missing, which would have helped you, is autosaving every x minutes- that can be a bit dodgy though as you can overwrite a save you meant to keep.

Yeah, it was a pretty key plot point as well so I feel it should have been situational. But worth hammering that F5. It's very good, tough and felt a lot more on the rails than I expected, but some great writing and I was enjoying it. But not enough to do all that again.

 

Will probably return at some point, but not for a bit.

I had a quick read around as I didn't want to mess up my initial build, and it seems the first few hours are the toughest. I'm enjoying it so far, just on the first island though so barely scratched the surface as yet.

Are going with a fully customised build, or one of the preset characters. Sebille was my main char.

I went for this one as I quite liked the idea, and it's always fun being massively OP in a CRPG- https://fextralife.com/divinity-original-sin-2-builds-eternal-warrior-death-knight-perfected/

 

I think my next steps will be recruiting party members- I want the lizard because he's a sarcy bastard and Sebile looks an interesting character as well.

 

Edit- keep forgetting to ask, what are you playing it on?

PC.  Kept it as blind as I could going in.

 

I had Sebille, the Red Prince, Ifan and Lohse. Was intrigued by Fane, but was already invested in these by the time I found him.

    • It was the gimp, I think. 
    • They’re really milking this deal. 
    • I know there’s no time for two club cunts on here but Sporting just need 4 points to clinch the Premeira. Three years ago they were known as the worst run club in world football, when their president paid supporters to attack players at the training ground. Just goes to show anything is possible and you are never as far away as you think. All done on a shoestring budget, with a rookie manager and a bunch of punk kids. Big Seb Coates finally came good.
    • The irony is that almost every other club would kill to be in the position that City and Chelsea are in.
      Everton would be top of that list, yet proudly spout about how they “called out” the breakaway six and spoke for every other club when they called for sanctions against them. The purpose of those sanctions were to allow themselves to be bumped into a position where they could “qualify” for a European place that they hadn’t actually earned as much as anything else and to claim differently is basically a lie.
      West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace, with rent-a-quote chairman Steve Parrish, again pontificating about how these teams should be brought to book, yet wanting to null and void last season to protect themselves against possible relegation whilst saying it was morally wrong to play on given lives were being lost. They refuse to see that in applauding City and Chelsea for breaking away, and back into the Premier League, all that is guaranteeing is they strengthen those clubs with Oligarchs or Oil States as owners to continue dominating every competition they are in, effectively taking the competitiveness away from those very same competitions!
      The ESL wasn’t handled very well in its timing or proposed implementation, but the general idea that it would possibly limit the massive money teams and allow others to challenge them was a sound one, but the blinkers were on from the time the announcement was made and the “little 14”, as opposed to the “big 6”, basically decided to hold onto what they had rather than what they might have had. It won’t go away though and they must know that, even if the current voting regulations in the Premier League give them the whip hand, and effectively a veto, for anything the top teams might want to bring in. A quick look at who has won the major prizes in European competition and domestic leagues over the past few seasons will show them why the current system needs changes to be made. They’re all hypocrites though, and will bury their collective heads in the sand while the really big boys dry bum them.
