Pillars of Eternity: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 194

Dan and Corey cover the kickstarted, old-school, isometric PC RPG Pillars of Eternity for this week's episode.  PoE (Pillars of Eternity, not Path of Exile) takes inspiration from the old Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale RPG's from back in the day, while adding a few modern touches.  The result is a spectacularly deep and strategic game with an engrossing universe.  Everything one would want in an RPG, correct?
