I love this game. This is so cool:



I've gotten into a nice groove with my current character and finished my first Mistake mission last night. Took on 40+ armored guards and my only armor piercing weapon was a longblade. did lots of teleportation, stealth, key cloning, and crashbeaming to get to my target before jumping out the window and getting an emergency pickup.

the nebulas are so big though, it's really quite a grind to get through this.

love a good devblog, this last entry about the recent update is great:

Arturo wrote:How's the split screen play in Divinity OS?

Wanted something to play with my gf.


Bit late but if you're still curious I started this the other day with my girlfriend and we've both been having a blast. She's been getting mad at me when I say we gotta go to bed because we've somehow played 3-4 hours in a row just walking through the town and interacting with the environment / goofing around.

I'd say if you both have an interest in CRPGs it's about the best experience you can have in local multiplayer. You can play it so that it utilizes the whole screen and you're both confined to the same space but we've just had the "forced split-screen" option (changeable on the fly) going the whole time so while I'm out looking for skill books and intimidating NPCs for gold she can dig up graves / talk to animals / steal everything she can get her hands on. There's a pretty cute dialogue system too that lets you interact together after key events/quests and allows both of you to choose options in how quests are ultimately handled, resulting in a game of rock paper scissors if you find yourself on opposite sides.

It's really silly and really light hearted in its presentation and world building but it's all really strong and a great deviation from a lot of games that are going for a more grim self-serious tone. Whether its humour will be your cup of tea or not isn't something I can determine, but I think the gleefully absurdist approach works really well especially when you have two people going wild with the huge wealth of interactions in the world which inherently tends to lean the game towards something more playful in the first place.

Controls are good on controller and the tutorial makes sure to go over everything in a pretty thorough way while not babying you too much while you go through the optional tutorial dungeon or wander the first couple areas, and combat is pretty intuitive as long as you have a little bit of experience with turn based combat. My girlfriend has seen me play a bunch of RPGs and played through Grimoire with me but this is her first time actually controlling one and she's found it to be inviting despite her only game experience being old DOS adventure games a decade ago.

It also allows for a lot of experimentation; talents like healing when standing in pools of blood, casting rain spells only to zap the puddles and stun enemies, lighting poison clouds on fire and so forth, all of which work exceptionally well when you are cooperating with another human being rather than concocting strategies yourself. It feels pretty amazing to coordinate an attack on a much higher enemy and work out a strategy together and laugh when things go wrong and fuckin cheer when you finally muscle through the overwhelming odds.

Only thing to mention is I'm not sure if you're on PC or console, but if you're on PC you'll need two controllers because the interface changes pretty drastically and doesn't support M+KB and controller at the same time. But yeah, hearty recommendation from someone currently going through the game in a similar situation. We love it so far.

Can't say 100% but I'm pretty sure I had to manually add the OST myself when I played it a while back. That said, there should be some steam guides that link directly to the files and walk you through the process in an accessible way.

I have been thoroughly enjoying Shadow of War, I'm barely doing any story stuff because I enjoy all the open world activities so much

edit: I just thought about it for a while longer and one of the best things about this game is the skill tree. There is a huge variety of options and it really allows you to adapt your characters strengths to how you want to play the game. Im all about range+stealth+immobilizing but it would be totally possible to play more like a melee berserker or beastmaster or a tank or an explosives guy (as far as I know there is no skill tree cap/level cap so eventually I might be be all the things)

the level of interactivity with the environment is also fantastic, I think it even surpasses Horizon Zero Dawn, which I loved. For anybody who has played both, is it better than Assassin's Creed?
