    I think it's an age thing. Pillars is most appealing to old school rpg gamers who tend to skew old and don't watch twitch

    downloaded this game completely ignorant to what i was going to encounter

    i dont know when i started to dislike fantasy, but holy fuck i do not care what these neckbeards imagined about each little character. i do have fun playing it, but not reading ugh.

    im going to end up buying a pair if i keep seeing that.

    gives me an idea for a kickstarter though, get some cheaply made medkit-like container made in china, make a bunch of deals with neckbeard/gaming accessory companies like this, pack it full and start marketing to moms and girlfriends before christmas.

    Watching people play videogames is pretty stupid no matter what age you are (except to see how to complete a tricky quest or something from a Youtube video). It's like that weird kid that would stand by the Street Fighter II machine but wouldn't play even when you offered to get off of it or play against him.

    I dunno I don't do it bcause too busy but an insane # of people watch twitch/YouTube and it's only growing in popularity I figure there's something to it. Just have no desire to find out

    Games are entertainment, just like game shows or sports. I really don't see what is odd about watching games, or watching people play games for that matter.

    I somewhat understand watching elite players for competitive games like Starcraft or Dota, but the sports analogy that applies to most twitch gamers is sitting around at the Y watching dudes play pickup games.

    i watch soccer sometimes and like it

    and i like playing sports

    but i'm not obsessive any any particular sports team and don't care enough to watch them normally

    don't see how that's relevant though

    point is: esports are at least as good. not saying they're fantastic

    i poopsocked the fuck out of this game for the past couple days.

    barb (main)
    fighter
    wizard
    chanter
    priest
    cipher

    cipher makes shit happen

    made it to caed nua and

    just went spelunking all the way down to level 9 immediately. not sure if that's what you're supposed to do, cuz i cant walk thru a room with a spiked floor without dying (or stopping to heal constantly/using camp supplies. figured i just went too fast.

    two bards is a rly good idea lol, i would probably sacc the wizard but he just requires a little more placement management and the spells are sweet
