It is quiet down here! I think it's awful that people don't chat enough about off-topic stuff.
I'm feeling slightly ambivalent about PoE2: I didn't play the original but did spend quite a while playing Tyranny, which was a real love/hate experience for me. I loved the inventive world, lore and characters, but found the presentation of the game not so much retro as just dated when compared to D:OS, and the dialogue was a bit dry for my tastes (though that just seems to be an Obsidian signature thing and is quite subjective). That and the later stages feeling a bit rushed spoiled it slightly for me.
