    That and I'm assuming something slightly darker as well. Something like some couple has a child that they realize they can't take care of for whatever reason so they abandon the child at this rumored place they've heard of called Little Lamplight. If I remember right, Little Lamplight is on the route for the trade caravans, so its existence must be known to the wider wasteland.

    Which opens up another possibility: any orphans the traders find on the road probably get left at Little Lamplight the next time that caravan stops there.

    I actually heard -or, well, read- of it back when it came out, on TVTropes of course, and since I stumbled into heavy spoilers I put it out of my mind for a while.
    Anyway, 75 USian dollars? Between that and the need to upgrade my computer (more money) it's still off the table.
    That's like watching somebody stream a Choose Your Own Adventure game. You're missing out on all the fun!

    The first PoE is 75 dollars in Argentina?! At full price, it's $25 USD here. I got it years ago for like $10 during a sale, though.

    Yes. There's farms named ‘Farm’, just to start with. And I'll leave it at that.
    I think it's a two-game bundle with a season battle pass or something like that, but still, with the required upgrades for memory-hogging stuff it's no thanks. Our glorious new Nazi government* has slapped a 30%new tax on purchases on abroad just because.

    *not kidding about the Nazism.

    That PoE must not be Path of Exile.

    EDIT: Oh Pillars of Eternity. Please don't confuse what is not the real PoE with other games.

    Games do not need to have been played by Birdjaguar to exist.

    Well, I guess imaginary games do have a place as long as we don't confuse them with real games. :p

    I mean I'm fine missing out on Fallout 1's particular brand of fun. It's not that great of a game. Maybe it was at the time (I wasn't into that genre at the time so I couldn't tell you) but there are better options out there now.

    Honestly if someone modernized the UI, I'd play it again. 90% of my beef with the game is the UI, no joke. It's that atrocious that it takes me out of the fun.

    I liked that game but PvP was weak sauce. You either got crushed by someone who dropped lots of money on a nice ship or you start a match and the other person quits when they are close to losing. Overall it was pretty good and I only stopped playing because of a severe graphical glitch that made it impossible to play.

    I thought STO was too hard. I rage-quit when I reached the Bajoran(?) part of the story.

    I didn't get too far in the main story but I did side missions and cruised around battling Borg without any real issues.

    Frankly I don't PvP in STO, I'm too fond of winning to really enjoy it. :lol:

    75 $ ?
    It's 36 € (so maybe 40-45 $ ?) on GOG.
    Just so you know, if you're looking at the same sort of old-school-party-based-RPG, there is also Pillars of Eternity 2 : Deadfire and Pathfinder : Kingmaker. Both great.
