State of Decay 2 sometimes feels like a far-too-real representation of the mundane reality that comes with surviving a zombie apocalypse. Consistently being on the hunt for food, resources to craft ammunition, and survivors to bolster your ranks doesn’t always translate into a captivating gameplay loop–especially when you’re faced with [...]
Pillars of Eternity was something of a herald for the second golden age of classic computer role-playing games.

More than a decade (and many games) later, it makes sense that Sony would want to mix things up for the aged hack-and-slash series.
