Earlier this month Bertie and I visited Obsidian Entertainment, the excellent, proudly independent role-playing game developer based in Irvine, California. There's plenty of history there, from the team's work on games like Pillars of Eternity, Alpha Protocol and Fallout: New Vegas to its genesis at Black Isle Studios.
I don't know if you've heard but Pillars of Eternity is a pretty massive video game. By the sounds of it, I'm looking at a 60+ hour adventure and that's great, but it's the first thirty minutes that I'd really like to talk about right now.
There are still months until release but finally Pillars of Eternity - Obsidian's Kickstarter darling - is playable.
