Pillars Of Eternity: The First Half Hour

By John Walker on March 23rd, 2015.

I have spent most of the last week doing little else but play Obsidian’s Pillars Of Eternity [official site]. But I cannot yet tell you wot I think, as such brainthoughtss are under embargo. I can, however, stream or “let’s play” the first fifteen hours of the game. But I’m not going to do that, because it would be the most awful shame for you to have such things spoiled.

A Commentary On My First Game Commentary

By Alec Meer on March 4th, 2015.

Yes, I realise you nosey parkers are going to inspect all the objects on my shelf

Yesterday I did my first-ever game stream (well, I did try with Thief a couple of years back, but I basically didn’t commentate), with Cities: Skylines. How did it go?
