Right, serious advice needed here. Me and the wife are just finishing off diablo 3 on ps4 couch co op. Was hoping to get another couch co op for Christmas, as of now, it'll be original Star Wars battlefront 2 but my eye has been on divinity 2, original sin. The reviews are amazing but I'm just not sure yet. Any thoughts on the game would be welcome or any suggestions for ps4 or xbone.

Divinity original sin 2 has to be the best rpg that has come out this decade by a mile for me followed by dragons dogma and Elex.

Divinity can be played co op but it is nothing like diablo. Its a slow paced game where you will be reading & listening to many dialogues and text. The combat is turn based and ruthless at some places.

If you want something like diablo but in a futuristic setting take a look at alienation, very solid game.

Much appreciated mate, yeah, I’m about to get hate but diablo 3 got so freaking boring. Especially the last act. I know that’s sacriledge. It started off fun but we completed it on the hardest setting available and it wasnt a challenge at all. We were completely op. We’ve gone and bought divinity 2 knowing full well now it’s going to be a major undertaking. Watched a number of different videos and holy spit, the combat system looks incredibly deep. The whole game does, excited and terrified jumping in. We are hoping it’ll be a game we’ll play for the next few years. I think it’ll be putting an entire day aside and just throwing ourselves in and learning. Any noob tips for a NOOB would be greatly appreciated.

The game is so complex that referring to a guide would make it even more confusing. I recommend playin it on the easiest difficulty since it won't kill the pace of the game in coop. You can always push the difficulty higher once you get the hang of the mechanics.

Important tips off the top of my head:
- try to make hybrid character builds which cover all elemental damages(fire,ice,water,poison,etc) and also consider long/close range (eg.long range- archer,mage,etc. / close range - warrior, knight,basically tanks, etc)

- higher ground during the battle gives you a damage buff

- You can create oily, water ,toxic, etc surfaces during battle so pay attention to your environment.

- explore everything and talk to all npcs. Get the pet pal perk which gives you the ability to communicate with animals.

- get into the habit of saving the game manually every 15 mins and keep multiple saves instead of overwriting.

- also the game rewards you for sneaking and thieving every place.

Diablo 3 was a decent game but never replayed it again. You should seriously consider alienation and helldivers, both twin stick shooters. Helldivers has friendly fire which makes co op even more fun and challenging.

Anyways merry christmas to you and all the posters/eds.

Much appreciated mate, same to you and your family. Crazy Christmas so far and haven’t had a chance to put it in the tray but I’ve already decided I need the animal perk on your advice. We’ll find a way to get our asses kicked from the off but looking forward to it.
