    I tried to equip the ring but it's still not showing. I logged out and back in.

    Are you using Galaxy?

    I don't want to defend the game, but it's very interesting that these deep problems with a game never occur to John Walker when he is playing some mainstream shit.

    Italian review is out. 83/100

    https://multiplayer.it/recensioni/1...sione-di-pillars-of-eternity-ii-deadfire.html



    + Bigger than PoE I
    + Combat system was refined
    + It's much better technically and graphically

    - It struggles when compared to D:OS 2
    - Some of the new mechanics get old/irrelevant quickly
    - While narratively successful, it's inferior (in that regard) to PoE I


    Reviewer also mentions how losing Avellone was a big blow for Obsidian.
    Looks like a very fair review overall, they mention how they were expecting something more, and while it's not a bad game by a big stretch, it could have been better.
