Review: Divinity: Original Sin

Remember the first "western RPG" that really made an impression on you? Maybe it was Baldur's Gate, maybe it was Planescape: Torment, or maybe it was Dragon Age: Origins. Regardless, you love that game. It might have fla...

Review: Divinity: Dragon Commander photo
Review: Divinity: Dragon Commander
by Patrick Hancock

Dragons and jetpacks, Civilization and StarCraft. Mix'em all together and what do you get? Divinity: Dragon Commander.

Okay, it's a bit more complicated than that, but those are certainly the core elements at play when discussing Divinity: Dragon Commander. It's not quite a real-time strategy game as complex as StarCraft, and it's just shy of being as big-picture as Civilization. It does have jetpack-wearing dragons, however, which sort of puts things in perspective. I mean, what else really matters?

Dragon Commander testers get uber micro in competition

For a long while now, we've seen how Divinity: Dragon Commander is mashing up real-time strategy, role-playing game elements, and directly controlled aerial combat featuring jetpack dragons. It's certainly a unique combinati...

Let's watch 27 minutes of Divinity: Dragon Commander

Come for the jetpack-wearing dragon, stay for the combination of real-time strategy with base building, aerial combat, and overarching political role-playing. If it was not already clear before this extended gameplay walkthr...

Jim and Larian are playing Divinity: Original Sin now!

I'm online with Larian Studios right now, playing Divinity: Original Sin, the game that's got less than a day to meet its final stretch goal on Kickstarter.  We've put this together as an unplanned last-minute thing and I'm looking forward to giving it a good ol' look and maybe stabbing something with a sword. Enjoy!

E3: First look at Divinity: Original Sin
by Jim Sterling

Before E3, Larian Studios announced Divinity: Original Sin, a return to the isometric roots of Divine Divinity after the third-person action RPG that was Divinity II. The team was on hand to demo the game, showcasing its new co-op dialog options, turn-based tactical combat, and bug-eyed skeletons with comical bombs strapped to their backs. 

In case you were wondering, I'm all about it.

E3: Jetpack dragons & skeleton boobs in Dragon Commander
by Jim Sterling

Three things sold me on Divinity: Dragon Commander the moment I first saw a demo of it. If it pleases the court, I should like to list those three things, as they all bear an important role in furthering my excitement for Larian Studios' upcoming game.

  1. It remarkably blends strategy, roleplaying, and action in a game that lets you rule a kingdom and deal with politics and social challenges just as much as it throws you into the thick of the combat. 
  2. You can marry a princess from the Undead kingdom, who wears a bra stuffed with giant melons and smears lipstick over her bony face in order to regain a sense of her human appearance. 
  3. A dragon. Wearing a jetpack. A. Jet. Pack.

With those three killer selling points in my mind, Dragon Commander was among my most anticipated games heading into E3. Having gotten a look at the game in action, I can say that my excitement is not quelled.
