  • Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition Review (PS4 Version)

    Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One earlier this month to great fanfare. The isometric RPG made by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Paradox Interactive, the biggest question going into the game was not whether or not it would be a great game – critics and fans alike agreed that PoE was stellar on PC. The question stemmed from how well the interface and controls would translate to a gamepad and television screen.

  • Interview - Josh Sawyer on Wrapping Up Pillars of Eternity

    Obsidian Entertainment has staked a claim on the CRPG genre in the last year. With Pillars of Eternity, the studio returned to their roots, abandoning the sprawling 3D open worlds of Fallout: New Vegas and the pop culture satire of South Park: The Stick of Truth for isometric cameras, dice rolls, and one of the best interactive stories this side of the open world.

  • Strikes the Right Old School Notes

    When it comes to expectations, Obsidian knows that they are sky high for its upcoming crowdfunded throwback RPG, Pillars of Eternity. The game was one of the first handful of super successful Kickstarter supported projects, with the team having learned a few lessons from the fast-paced community response almost immediately. With the release of the backers’ beta just a couple of weeks ago, the game went before the fans at PAX late last week.

  • The Infinity Engine’s Back

    Pillars of Eternity’s crowdfunded development by Obsidian shows just how much people love their 90s RPGs. The Infinity Engine was the base of classics RPGs like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale, and with Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian hopes to recapture the make of that golden era.

  • The RPGs of Yesteryear, Made Anew

    There was a bit of controversy when well-known AAA studio Obsidian reached out to Kickstarter in order to fund a passion project. Pillars of Eternity is a classic Infinity Engine style RPG in the vein of Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale. To be sure, as much as we would love updated games in this style, the fact is that most people with the venture capital money likely think we don’t.

  • The White March Part One Review

    Pillars of Eternity, as you might remember from our original review, is an excellent CRPG that hearkens back to the days of Black Isle’s best games. With staff from said revered studio and with Obsidian being veteran of the RPG genre, it only makes sense that PoE was so widely anticipated and adored. But can the studio continue the magic with its first major expansion, The White March?
