UPDATE 23RD OCTOBER: A brief update to let you know winners will be chosen this week! Sorry it's taken a while to sort out.
ORIGINAL STORY 11TH SEPTEMBER: We're indulging in a bit of a celebration of the work of veteran role-playing game studio Obsidian Entertainment over the next couple of weeks, and as part of that we would love you to share memories of your favourite moments from Obsidian's classic games, past and present. We'll be rewarding our favourite memories with prizes!
The prizes come courtesy of Paradox Interactive, which is publishing a couple of Obsidian titles this month: the console version of the studio's old-school role-player Pillars of Eternity, out now; and the first expansion for last year's villainous RPG Tyranny, called Bastard's Wound, released on 7th September. Here's what our lucky winners will take away:
- One Xbox One S console with a copy of Pillars of Eternity
- One PlayStation 4 console with a copy of Pillars of Eternity
- 10 pairs of PC keys for Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny (the base games)
- The console winners and six of the PC key winners also get an exclusive limited edition Pillars or Tyranny medal, as awarded to members of the Obsidian development team after launching the games
To enter, simply share your favourite moment from an Obsidian Entertainment game in the comments below this article. (You'll need to log in or register an account with Eurogamer to do so.) We're accepting entries up to and including Tuesday 12th September.
To jog your memory, here's a list of Obsidian's best-known games to date:
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords
- Neverwinter Nights 2
- Alpha Protocol
- Fallout: New Vegas
- Dungeon Siege III
- South Park: The Stick of Truth
- Pillars of Eternity
We suspect we'll be seeing a lot of suggestions from KOTOR 2 and New Vegas, but Alpha Protocol and South Park have their fair share of memorable moments...
In the meantime, look out for a load of coverage of Obsidian's culture and history on the site. A couple of weeks ago, Chris and Bertie (plus some of our friends at VG247, Rock, Paper Shotgun and USgamer) visited the studio and were given a wealth of exclusive access to the veteran staff there to talk about their games - including some fascinating ones that were cancelled or never got past the pitch stage, and also some titles from Obsidian's 'parent' studio, Black Isle, which made Fallout 2 and Planescape Torment, among others. As a taster, here's Chris taking a tour of the studio with founder and CEO Feargus Urquhart:
Look out for lots more soon, and don't forget to share your favourite memories below!
