Yipee!!!

I'm going through the whole saga again this summer! And it's still good after all those years (I know, I'm desperate. I *need* to play KotoR :whacked: ).

If you don't have it, you can get it really cheap here (www.interplay-store.com).

Trust me, it's worth $29!!!

I'm currently Playing Baldur's Gate 2: Shadow of Amn with the Expansion Throne of Bhaal. I'm trying to take one character from beginning of Baldur's Gate I and export him and play him through Baldur's Gate II and export him and play him through Neverwinter Nights. So far I have a 20th Level Sorcerer who kicks ass! :D

I've been thinking of getting Baldur's Gate for awhile... Don't know why I didn't sooner

Voice of Reason: Because you spent all your summer money from your Library job on Anime DVDs and a Joystick..

God dammit...

One thing about BG I'm not clear on: Is it one character and a henchmen ala NWN or a Party system

It's a party System, you control the actions, level ups, inventories etc. of up to six members, but you can also set their AI scripts to limit micromanagement. All in all, I think the Baldur's Gate games were much more in depth story wise and in gameplay than Neverwinter nights ever was. So I say, go out and get a copy.

You can't export your BG2 char in NWN. It was too difficult since NWN uses 3rd edition rules, abd BG uses 2nd.

I also agree when you say that BG is better than NWN. Neverwinter is good, but IMO, BG has a better replay value.

Yes I play (im playing with a modem(thats right man. . .56k!!!yea!!!))

Better replay value, yes, but the i find that theres is no difference when you level up with your charecters in BG2, except for the spells.

Don't worry about the lenght, it's LONG.

Last summer, I was playing adictively (sp?) each day (we're talking about an easy 4 hours here) and I was at the last chapter of SoA after a month (and I missed some quests too).

Yeah, I read in a review that the game can be 200 hours long which is like... wow

Note to self: Never order from the Interplay store ever again.

I ordered it on Sunday, and they haven't even gotten around to shipping it yet. *mumbles something*

I don't normally triple post, but seeing how I'm too lazy to edit and I have no reason to spam:

I got BG2 yesterday, turns out stupid Interplay never updated my order... Great fun, BG2 is, got a Level 9 Inquisitor Character going..

*Idea* We should try to get a mp game started or something
