Neverwinter Nights 2

The Sunday night crew that I play with finished up Guild Wars and all the expansions last Sunday night.

Strangely enough, the final fight was not nearly as difficult as the two fights before it. So, our quick win kind of took us by surprise.

This week has been all about finding out what the heck it is that we will be doing over the next year or so until Diablo III is released. Unfortunately the official word is that they won't give us a firm release date. You know how Blizzard works. They like to get everything and every detail wonderful before they hit the release button. That's too their credit. Yup, I just complimented Blizzard.

After considering Space Siege and Titan Quest, we eventually rested upon Neverwinter Nights 2 (NWN2). After downloading the game and playing it for a couple hours last night . . . boy do I hope we've made the right decision. You see, Guild Wars was pretty fast paced. Things happened relatively quickly and it was an adrenaline rush at some times. NWN2 is more strategic than Guild Wars. I really hope the guys like this. The interface is also a little weird. moving the mouse to the edges of the screen to rotate the camera is odd and you have to press the asterisks key a few times in different situations to get the right view. It's highly likely that I'm just in the noob phase here where I'm learning controls.

What I do like about it so far is that the story is much more in depth and rich. There's more cut scenes (at least here in the beginning).

So, here goes nothing . . . I imagine our troupe will start playing either next Sunday night or the one after that.


During all this research I actually did find a game I want to give a shot. I don't think it'd be right for our crew, but I think I want to try Demigod. I'll have to keep you informed if I jump in with both feet or not.
