Working too much, playing a lot of Divinity: Original Sin 2 on PS4 (and yes, that is quite the name for a game). It's a kind of classic style isomorphic tactical RPG. What makes it stand out is how much choice it offers in actions, alternate pathways to accomplish goals, and branching story options. I'm quite enjoying it, though sometimes the options are overwhelming. The storyline and fantasy world are not at all novel, it feels very Dragon Age inspired to me, with a powerful church and people with magic powers that are considered a danger and the church trying to control them, but it doesn't have as great a sense of place, I think. Still enjoyable and certainly catching me up in the desire to know what happens next.
