Game Log D:OS2 – PES2019 – 001
So I've played 3 hours of Divinity: Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition on the Xbox One and here's what I've learned so far:
You only get to create 1 character at the start of the game. I was not expecting that, but it is what it is. This is not like Icewind Dale then in that regard.
I found it hard to make a character look good... The faces that were available in the game, were err ugly LOL. I ended up with an “okay” looking character after giving him a beard.
I selected two “tags” for my character (Noble and Soldier), but I think it was possible to select just one, or even none at all. Will have to remember that for next time I create another character.
The camera in this game is really good. A stark difference compared to Wasteland 2, where I found I was fighting the camera most of the time.
The Origin characters show up as possible companions in the game. And you get to choose what class they will be before you decide to let them travel with you.
Be careful trying to back-stab enemies. It is just as easy for other enemies to back-stab your character as well. Backstabbing in this game is simply positioning a character behind the target and then attacking. Any attack from this position is considered a back-stab. The first time I tried it, I was successful. The enemy AI though did the same thing to my character right after. Fail.
Combat in this game can be hard. I already saw the game over screen at least twice haha.
It is very important to save your game before doing anything. Use the quick save as much as you want.
To check what conditions are affecting your characters and to find out how long they will last, you have to open the character screen using the radial menu.
On a different note, I also made it to the last 2 games of my Master League season in Pro Evolution Soccer 2019. My team is at the top of the standings. My two strikers are the leading goal scorers in the league. It's all going so well actually that I'm considering raising the difficulty at the start of the next season.
