I am most of the way through now and only have the main quests and one side quest from act 2 yet to go. I love the side quests!
I am hoping that this patch finally allows people to go online. I have a fairly standard linksys home network and am unable to get online.
I played DS 1 through about 3 times completely and the expansion through twice. I thoroughly enjoyed it. like reading an airplane book. Not good enough to read anywhere else, but excellent on a plane. I play DS 1 while i was staying in the hospital with my wife and mother (2 separate issues). The game was stellar about hitting the space bar and going off and coming back whenever you want. My biggest complaints with DS 2 are that i can't save and come back to that exact point (but I've gotten over this issue and think it does not hinder the game). The other issue is that i liked grouping my chars and having dif attacks and defenses queued up. This has been replaced with powers.. Powers are fun, but i miss changing formations and group dynamics. i also miss being able to set people to attack or stand their ground or not attack even when provoked. I also miss having more chars to build out. For all these gripes, I love the new and dif game that is DS 2. ..as do my wife and 2 children..
we had to get a second copy and I am hoping this patch allows us to play together online. (I think the LAN option would work, but reaaly want to try online with some of my friends that have bought the game because I raved about it.)
