Divinity: Original Sin 2’s Kickstarter campaign has just wrapped up, and Larian Studios pulled in just over $2 million. For those not familiar with the first game, Divinity: Original Sin was a turn-based RPG that was met with critical acclaim. It pulled in nearly every award it could when it was released two years ago, recognized primarily for its traditional RPG throwbacks and character progression.
Larian Studios managed to release an amazing RPG gem just a few days ago. The company behind the Divinity Series has spent the entirety of last week atop Steam's best-selling games list, and that's out of the company's full catalog. We originally wrote about Divinity: Original Sin here, giving an overview of the game's tabletop-like RPG elements. To celebrate Divinity: Original Sin, we decided to do an ultra-budget "Cheap Bastard's gaming PC build" for right around $400.
With a minimalistic build like this, it obviously won't be able to play everything on max settings; however, it will be able to play most games on min-med graphics -- including LoL, DOTA2, Skyrim, Divinity, Banished, StarCraft 2, and others. You won't even need to wear a bucket on your head... but feel free to. We won't judge.
There are very few games that get me writhing with anticipation. Even fewer can ruin my work day by sending an email that there is a new update being released. Focusing on work rather than investigating what new changes have been made is an agony of indescribable horror and suffering. Swen Vincke and the team at Larian Studios just put me through that.
If you've had the misfortune of not hearing about Divinity: Original Sin before now, then accept my pity. We've previously reviewed Divinity's 3D RPG counterpart, Divinity II – The Dragon Knight Saga. And we liked it quite a bit.
But Original Sin is completely different from a mechanical angle.
