Doesn't really look like Pillars will even hold a candle to D:OS from what I've seen so far. D:OS is an alltime classic. I'd still expect Pillars to be the 2nd-best RPG this year, though.

But…

Regardless, the text of this newspost is simply wrong. The article says $165M in revenue. The newspost says $165M in profit. Very, very different.

No, a lot of them actually don't - a person (or more than one) creates a game, doesn't pay himself a salary, and then sells it (or even gives it away) once he's done.

Not that I'm saying that's a…

Gamespot's review isn't posted yet but their guy that's reviewing it has been posting nonstop on his Twitter for the last couple weeks about how great the game is. I'd be surprised if it their score…

Best since Temple of Elemental Evil, without a doubt. That's 11 years ago. I'm sure some/many would argue it's even better than ToEE, and that you'd have to go back even farther, but saying it's…

Not necessarily. DX11 is a PC/Xbox thing. It's quite possible that the PS4's graphics API (which is called GNM/GNMX) has an equivalent feature.

Can't really agree in Bethesda's case, the quality of their games dropped a ton when they started targetting consoles (the Morrowind to Oblivion difference).

CDPR has done OK though. I think PC's…

The crash-during-saving problem is only on 32-bit OSes from what I've read. I believe Alrik mentioned in a previous post that he's also running a 32-bit OS. It's due to memory limitations, and…
