Pillars of Eternity, beaten in less than 40 minutes

Conrad lost a lot of his life to Pillars of Eternity when he reviewed it. Clearly the poor sap was playing it wrong because Jiseed beat the damn thing in less time than it takes to watch the newest watercooler TV episode. Skill, some seque...   read

Saving the newly erected Ass from poop water in Cities: Skylines
