Well I'm looking forward to this.
Haven't played since...1.05?ish

Reviewing all of the leaks from Incgamers diii.net, and what's officially been said, the changes and this "ACT V", actually seems Diablo 1'ish. Really Diablo 1'ish.

There's a lot of positive things happening here with RoS, but I do admit the damage has been done. I'll be optimistic for this one this time, and I'm usually the ultimate pessimist.

That's all nice and cool, for sure, but my interest for that mod got absolutely and brutally obliberated the moment I realized these are fan-made maps. No matter how awesome the gameplay or mood, if I'm not following a story.. ergo there's no "higher purpose/goal", I have no motivation to play. I can't even feel the pathetic pride of being better than other players in some form of PVP.

How the fuck does one "enhance" a perfect game.

Fair question. At least with the first EE, they did all the modding for you to get BG1 using the BG2 engine and fix a couple major bugs (while making new ones). What is there to enhance in BG2?

Like with Project Eternity, I'm still concerned the stretch goals for both put them out of their original comfort zone for their games. I am happy Larian realizes the kickstarter campaign promises require extra time. The same is going for Eternity, from what their updates have suggested.

In regards to Eternity, a (9 floor?) extra dungeon that's supposed to be on par with Watchers Keep of Baldurs Gate II is a massive amount of work.... god help those guys on that.

I'll be getting it day one. I will gladly write down a mini review for peeps on this site. It'll be coming from a Thief fanboy, sure, but a fanboy who paid full price and is expecting lots. So, it could very well be quite the negative mini review.

Uh...what?

Also, I signed, just for laughs.

They preloaded the game for consoles, people hacked it. Entire story available online. That is all.

Amnesia is excellent.

If the now regular price of $20 is too high for you, and I believe that's great value, I'm sure there will be sales in a few months.

Proof? Seriously? It became obvious once you got past level 15-20 that you would have to end up on the AH unless you really did want a ironman loot type challenge as there was rarely good gear drops, unless you got something for an alt.

You never needed the AH on any class, solo, to get to 60. Nor were there signs you would end up on it at 15-20. At launch, you perhaps needed the AH to progress in Act 2 Inferno and beyond.

I support the more anti-Kinect arguments here. I just want to add this little bit.

I live in a Condo, people live above me. They have kids. I assume I'm not the only person in the world in a similar situation. If said kids got a Kinect, or heaven forbid a more technically advanced version that tracks you better, so your flailing & stomping & jumps are more accurate so you do it more, there would be war. War no strata or police force could stop.

Many wonderful memories of BG2 - I basically learned (at least a rough version of) D+D, by playing it...("WTF is this THAC0 shit???")

Minsc is/was the best sidekick ever.


Was Minsc really the best sidekick? Or was it Minsc's boy Boo that TRULY was the best sidekick ever?

Go for the eyes.

Ps.: NWN is still nice to play even now.... and so is BG2. Although I wouldn't play BG2 without some "ease of use" mods anymore... like removing locked chests and traps, everything Identified, stackable stuff... more carry weight, etc.
Ahh we're spoiled now. Makes me wonder how PE or PS:N are going to fair in some peoples minds if they have those in them.

I have to admit, this is pushing it, and I not and never have been a D&D player. I guess even for people that never touched a D&D adventure, the rules are too TOUGH. Never mind the multitude of items in BG2 that give you 400+ carrying weight, and several identifying abilities aren't OP already. Oh, and those bags of holding....ya. As for traps, how boring going through an ancient dungeon not traveled in hundreds of years NOT to have an arrow one shot you in the head at a wrong step. It's Baldur's Gate with fireball traps and pissed off spiders, not Faceroll Gate.

I'm sure I'll grab it. After it's been out for a while and patched many times.

Ya this, maybe, and confirmation that I can up the game speed. Wasn't impressed by the BG1 EE, and while happy to support the BG cause I wish I hadn't bought it. I've just never been able to get BG TUTU to work properly, or at all, so I went for the EE.

Tarnished Coast and Dragonbrand are routinely full. My friend had to sit at his PC for 6 hours checking the server status just to get on TC to make a character.

On TC too, always packed. Routinely put into overflows, even in zones with no world bosses or anything important going on.

I really like this game, but it sometimes feels like it's missing a soul or something. There's no one particular area, mission or dungeon that I find "memorable". WoW, on the other hand, has dozens of memorable zones/quests/dungeons/raids that elicits some emotional response. Yes, WoW is far older than GW2. So I have hope.

I'm familiar with the Oculus Rift but not familiar with how games become supported by it. If the developer doesn't support it, can't a fan develop a mod for Amnesia to support the Rift?

One feature missing in this version that upset me was that altering the FPS wasn't an option, or that it just didn't work properly. In all the original infinity engine games, you could go into the BG Config (or whatever) and up the FPS from its default of 30. This had an effect of increasing the entire games speed. I would usually have it between 45-50. Since I'm so used to that faster pace, this version felt so painfully slow.
