    Tags: Chris Avellone; Divinity: Original Sin 2; Larian Studios; Swen Vincke

    The first stop on Larian's Divinity: Original Sin 2 publicity tour was The PC Gamer Show, PC Gamer's weekly livestreamed podcast, which Swen Vincke and Chris Avellone were guests on earlier today. It was a casual chat about the game's features, writing and various other stuff. Most of the stream was actually about other topics - the Original Sin 2 part starts at around the 48 minute mark:


    There weren't really any new details here, although I must say Chris is looking rather um, healthy. Swen did reveal in the Q&A segment that there's going to be an RPG Codex vs RPGWatch rematch, which was news to me. I guess we can an expect an email from Larian soon.

    I see that Chris is picking up the iron again, together with a few snacks every couple of hours. For protein of course.

    Glad to see that Codex has finally reached the high journalistic standards set by its peers at Cosmopolitan and Vogue. What next, wanna comment on game developers clothing styles?

    I don't care if he made some of the greatest games, his shirt is offensive to emoji's and ostracizing.

    Hell yes. With even more trash talking. Also DU and whoever's in charge of the Watch need to make a bet that suitably humiliates the loser.

    A chat with MCA? I'm pretty sure I can stomach the PC Gamer guy. Chris obviously did.

    :EDIT: I can't believe I had the guts to make that pun.

    :EDIT: It seems tummy I've gone too far.

    :EDIT: At this point, I'm just yummyliating myself.

    They want to establish themselves as video entertainers and are using the guests to make sure that people will watch. It's a solid strategy.

    I've seen this before. A lot of the guys I know started getting swole or chubby after they stopped doing speed or coke. I guess it was the same for MCA after leaving Obsidian. Balance is a hell of a drug. :troll:

    OK... Something terrible just happened.

    If any of you was looking for me in the past 24 hours... I wasn't here.

    MCA ate me!!!

    I do believe it was an accident, even though I yelled at him:
    "Don't eat me, I'm a fucking Jew!
    All this fat is to make high quality soap!
    Not for eating!!!"

    It was worthless... He didn't even chew!
    After two seconds I found myself in the most dreadful place... His stomach.

    A maze filles with pieces of shit shaped like monsters!

    I fought them all... And survived to tell you the tale of MCA rectum.

    But I can't right now... I need to take a shower first.

    MCA... Please stop eating people!

    I want MOAR Chris Avellone. The dude's voice is sweet music to my ears. However those interviewers need to focus on the interview, not talking about how much they play Overwatch or some other shit popular game
