NWN2 Toolset-back

The Neverwinter Nights 2 Website (thanks Dan) has word of a slight delay to the release of the D&D RPG sequel and its toolset. The toolset for preorder customers is now expected on October 1 and the full game on October 31. An earlier mention of this (story) also characterized this as a delay, but this seems curious considering the game's release date has been set for October (story) and they promised the toolset to preorder customers one month before the game (story), so they are not cutting themselves any slack on this. Word is:
Atari and Obsidian would like to address the delay of the toolset ship date. As many of you know, the beta tests for both the game and the toolset are interlinked. We are happy to say that both beta tests have been *VERY* helpful for us. The dev team is making a number of changes that the community has brought o our attention and has therefore pushed both the game and the toolset launch out by a couple of weeks. The idea behind our pre-sell toolset release was to get people excited, not frustrate people. It has been something of a bumpy road, but we're almost at the end, so your continued patience and support is much appreciated. Please expect the toolset to be available on October 1st and the game to be available on October 31st.

I love how people still blame Obsidian for KoTOR2 and not LucasArts


Yeah, it can't be Obsidian's fault for taking too long that they had to cut it to meet the deadline. Not only that but the game was buggy as fuck - I was about half way through it when my save games became corrupted... I could load them but every single inventory item was gone. At the end of the day it was them that made the buggy piece of shit that was KOTORII and it is them I blame - Lucasart's would obviously want the game to be out as soon as possible, so you can't really blame them; judging by the delays with NWN2 I'd say it's more about Obsidian not managing time/assets properly than Lucasart's acting like a fascist dictator.

The thing that worries me the most is that the Obsidian CEO has expressed an interest to develop KOTORIII. They'll never learn.


I blame both, and Obsidian sure as hell isn't getting off the hook.

Not going anywhere near NWN2 for a LONG time...

Parallax got any links for it? Or any links why it was never patched? Or why from the time the Xbox version was released to the PC why nothing was fixed?

Couldn't log in for some reason.

Atari thinks a little to highly of themselves. Requiring registration to see the game's site really isn't the best way to promote a game!

Is anyone else able to get into the site or am I just screwed as usual?

I received two different codes from my pre-order but now I can't even access the the site. So is it locked down?

Please, let me know if you can access the count down page or internal site pages, thanks.

I love how people still blame Obsidian for KoTOR2 and not LucasArts who have actually admitted it was them who pushed it out early.

Fuck you and your facts.

Perhaps they'll actually finish a game, instead of just scrapping the ending and bug fixing stages to get it out early? Honestly, it's just more PR bullshit... they'll say anything to sugar coat the delay.

It's good to see that Obsidian is actually learning from the beta tests.

It's for the presale stuff, there's nothing else there.
When you register you enter your code and then continue on.

I put pre-orders in for BF2142
I wouldn't announce that around here... it won't make you very popular.

Hey, I sent Blue a mail and he posted it, I rock
But seriously, I'm partly glad it's pushed back, I put pre-orders in for BF2142 and NWN2 and JUST discovered I need to upgrade...next month is going to be expensive.

Well, I went to the website to check out some screenshots and... only the thumbnails load; all the pictures return a "Not Found" error, though nothing to do with this game surprises me anymore. Honestly, they've really fucked up the PR for this game.

This title sure is getting pushed back allot. I'm sure it will be worth it though because Obsidian has there whole company riding on this title alone.

LoL, damn this is getting slightly annoying.

What makes it worse either the site has been shut-down or my access is being denied for some reason I haven't been able to access it to check for updates or the counter for over a week. Not that it matters until October 1st...
