Obsidian are at PAX East this weekend to promote Pillars of Eternity II. Their publisher Versus Evil has been running a daily stream for the duration of the event, and today they put together a panel featuring Josh Sawyer and Carrie Patel along with The Banner Saga's Zeb West and Matt Rhoades, entitled "Role Playing - Our Lives Depend on It". It was just a generic RPG Q&A, only interesting for learning a bit about Carrie's background while watching Josh keep it real. Oh, and it ends with the announcement that the cast of Critical Role, voice actor Matthew Mercer's roleplaying web series, will all be doing voice acting in Pillars of Eternity II. Which is a big deal for somebody, apparently. You can also watch Mikey Dowling announce that here (but you really shouldn't).
As for Versus Evil's daily stream, Josh was on it yesterday along with loyal sidekick Aarik Dorobiala to show off the new version of the Pillars of Eternity II beta and talk about the game's combat mechanics, including ship-to-ship combat as well as regular battles. Despite the familiarity of the content at this point, it was a pretty entertaining watch, especially when Aarik got his ass whooped several times by the new upgraded Engwithan Titan.
There was also a Pillars II stream the day before that with Mikey Dowling and Aarik, but it's not the same without the Sawyer.
