Pillars of Eternity

Developer: Obsidian Platform(s): PC, Linux & MAC Release: 26/03/2015 Pillars of Eternity is a title that I have personally been looking forward to since the launch of Kickstarter three years ago. While some minor concern was warranted coming into this game (based on the previews […]
