Today's the day that marks the release of gameplay videos as well as a bunch of interviews and previews for Obsidian's upcoming real-time-with-elves RPG Pillars of Eternity. Here's the Giantbomb video for your viewing pleasure:
There's also this video from IGN or the one from Dealspwn, but the quality is pretty awful in the latter.
As far as previews are concerned, Gamespot asks the burning question about the thin line between homage and carbon copy:
IGN, in the meantime, believes that Pillars of Eternity "seems to push all the right RPG buttons", with Strategy Informer dwelling a bit more on the character creation and Digital Spy quoting Sawyer on Obsidian's goals with the beta:
"It's mostly for people to get a feel of just how the game plays overall, goofing around with the classes, the mechanics, combat, journals - it's up to them to try and play and mess around with it and see what doesn't really work, or if we aren't communicating things clearly."
Then there's an interview with Sawyer at PC World, as well as another one at Rock Paper Shotgun.
Finally, PCGamesN runs an article about Obsidian hoping that Pillars of Eternity sales will fund its sequel without Kickstarter. “What I would like, and this is true of any independent developer, is for this title and the expansion to be successful enough that we don't have to go back to Kickstarter to make the sequel,” Sawyer told PCGamesN. Well, fingers crossed.
