Woooh, boy. If there is one thing every single gamer in the world hates more than anything, it is those long, long loading screens. People can handle bad gameplay. That is almost never as big of a deal as we all say it is because at the end of the day we can play anything when we are really bored, but loading screens are not playing at all, now are they?

That is why Pillars of Eternity II — all the latest console editions, anyway — are not faring very well right now. I mean, just think about it, would you rather play the game or would you rather sit around and wait to play the game? The answer is clear, and Pillars of Eternity has found itself in a lot of hot water this time around. If you are a mega-fan, it might be worth it. But you will have to keep reading to see why.

It turns out the game was first released all the way back in 2018, so why hasn’t there been any headway in the world of video game power. It turns out there has, but we are still stuck with the same old, same old. Well, that just won’t do for us.

Sooner or later, all of these gamers are going to have to rise up and take care of all of this trouble with their favorite games. Pillars of Eternity I was one of the best RPGs out on the market with all kinds of great stories, fun game dynamics, memorable characters, and a great class and leveling system. So what ended up happening here? Did the developers get too far ahead of themselves?

It seems they didn’t. The problem here is the consoles ended up getting ahead of themselves. There is just too much going on in Pillars of Eternity II, and with the next-gen consoles not coming out for another few months, they probably jumped the gun by letting this bad boy come out so fast.

So if you really want to play this game, you will have to deal with the long loading screens. It is just as simple as that. And this is just a huge bummer for those of us who love to play these types of games.

I recommend that if you think you are a mega-fan, you should get out there and give this one a try. It will be a whole lot of fun, and it has a bit of RPG joy in every morsel. But beware, if you can’t handle long loading screens, then this one might not be for you, fam.
