@dispossession: I have had a series of increasingly fun but game-less weekend trips this year, and I have a week in Mexico coming up where apparently I'm going to help my fiancee's family re-roof a house. Sometime later in the year I'm definitely hoping to just do a staycation and crank away on some games, though. There are a bunch of RPGs that I don't really feel like I can tackle with my nightly hour or so of game-time. Maybe I'll finally beat Divinity 2 sometime!

Hey, we are still poking around on this one - Will is working with one of our mods who is affected. Sorry for the trouble, hopefully we'll lick it soon.

@killian: I think we're in a weird part of the year now where the big releases have kind of dried up before E3 so most of the stuff the editors are plucking for QLs are probably going to be a bit less familiar to people at first glance. I think when things start to get a bit more populated after E3 it'll be a little easier to pick and choose. As far as the QL/Unfinished stuff goes I usually glance at gameplay for a bit to see if it's something I want to watch in its entirety!

I think Waikiki will do it justice, but MAN has this ever taken a long time to come around. I remember hearing that DiCaprio was going to star in a Neo New York version of this in the....late 90s? Early 2000s?

I need to check PoE out again. I beat the game with some sloppy necro-build and got absolutely stomped doing maps. This might be the right time.

Yeah if you don't plan for the endgame as soon as you start things can get real tough real quick in maps. I need to hop back in myself - looking forward to it.

@blannir: There is a long story mode that you can play just fine with one persistent character. You will never need any sort of guide to just progress through that.

If you make a character in the current league and that league ends it will just be shunted over to the Standard league. You can continue to play that character as long as you like but if you are going to get started I would recommend waiting for a fresh start with the next league because they're way more fun.

Yeah, what he said! You can also join the discord: https://discord.gg/Ey3DTR

Honestly you should be able to get through the first five acts without following a guide; getting all the way through act 10 might be a bit trickier as it does get pretty tough later on, but at the lease you'll be able to outlevel the enemies as you go. You might want to at least look up some synergized skills from some of the popular builds and try to find the relevant gems; it can be easy to miss gems that work well together if you're just playing blind, since the gem merchants have dozens of gems and it can be a bit daunting to figure out what works together. Even parsing the build guides can be pretty difficult, though. But if you join the discord you can feel free to ask any questions there, or here in the forums! Things should start ramping up with the new season coming along.
