Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition Review

When we first reviewed Divinity: Original Sin 2 in 2017, we gave it a 9.6 for Amazing. Here’s what we said then:

Divinity: Original Sin 2 may have been designed in the spirit of decades-old RPGs like Baldur’s Gate 2, but that legacy serves only as a foundation for the expansive game Larian has built on top of it. Few other RPGs allow such a wide range of flexibility while also supporting rewarding combat and a powerful story. This will be remembered as one of the greats. – Leif Johnson

Now, the Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition refines and retools some elements of the first game that didn’t quick stick as a free update for owners of the original on PC, and ushers that excellent isometric experience onto consoles for the first time. And that translation to console is skillfully executed, delivering one of the greatest RPGs in recent memory with near-lossless quality.

TouchArcade Game of the Week: ‘Donut County’

The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn’t necessarily mean our Game of the Week pick is the highest scoring game in a review, the game with the best graphics, or really any other quantifiable “best” thing. Instead, it’s more just us picking out the single game out of the week’s releases that we think is the most noteworthy, surprising, interesting, or really any other hard to describe quality that makes it worth having if you were just going to pick up one.

These picks might be controversial, and that’s OK. If you disagree with what we’ve chosen, let’s try to use the comments of these articles to have conversations about what game is your game of the week and why.

Without further ado…

Donut County

Ben Esposito’s Donut County ($4.99) has been in the works for literally years, since at least as far back as 2012 when it was a quirky prototype known as Kachina. The idea was novel and pretty simple: You controlled a hole …read more

‘Arena of Valor’ News: AoV Prime Details, Cybercore Wukong, and Amily!

I woke up this morning planning to write a fairly short Arena of Valor news round-up. Even with the patch going live early yesterday, it felt like most of what was set to arrive had already been covered in last week’s edition. While that’s still more or less true, a lot more went on behind that scenes that I fully realized. Perhaps overshadowed by the patch itself. If you missed the news last week, you should read that first. Let’s get to it!

AoV Prime with Don Maloch Skin

It wasn’t made clear through any official channels, but we fully expected the Valor Pass to come AoV Prime made its way into the game. We were wrong. AoV Prime is now active and available.

In case we didn’t cover it enough in the past, AoV Prime is a monthly subscription that awards players with a larger free hero rotation to use in Ranked, a rotating set of skins to borrow, discounts on select purchases each month and a few community cosmetic differences to flaunt your expendable income and/or dedication to anyone who runs into you in-game.

AoV Prime costs 249 vouchers each month. There’s nothing on there that …read more

Amazon Item of the Day: The Best Micro SD Card for the Nintendo Switch

One of the best ways you can support TouchArcade is by doing your Amazon shopping through a TouchArcade affiliate link. We’ve set up the easy to remember too if you want to type that in or bookmark it. We get a small percentage of anything you buy through any of these links, which otherwise would just go to financing Jeff Bezos’s experimental pizza bagel flavors or whatever else he’s up to now, and it goes a long way to supporting the site at no additional cost to you. These Amazon Items of the Day articles are all products we have used ourselves, and feel are things that the TouchArcade audience might be interested in!

Our favorite Micro SD card for the Nintendo Switch is once again on sale on Amazon. We’re huge fans of the Sandisk Ultra 200GB Micro SDXC UHS-I Card as it has transfer speeds of up to 100MB/s which is more than fast enough for anything you’d ever want to do with the Switch, and being a Sandisk card it’s backed by a real brand name folks respect with a 10 year warranty if anything ever goes bad. And really, after 10 years, …read more
