Pillars of Eternity -- The White March, Part 2

Whereas the original game was one that I couldn’t stop playing, The White March – Part 2 was a game that eventually became a grind that I had to force myself to finish.  Now would be a great time for Obsidian to take a few years to reflect on the successes of Pillars of Eternity and develop a great sequel.

Europa Universalis IV has taken grand strategy to the point that it doesn't require much more time investment than other strategy games. Once players overcome the initial learning curve, Europa Universalis IV will prove a memorable strategy experience that provides as much fun stories as it does sheer tactical complexity.
