Yeah, see, this is exactly why I don't want to play it.

I fail to see what you're getting at, Avery.

lolz.. I know what a shrink would say to that.

What I can say is that persons of like disposition can often act as a good filter for things you may or may not want to at least try out
The liking bit is up to you

I must admit - I hadn't heard of Planescape until 30 seconds ago......

//googlewiki// lolz. looks pretty for its era. I wonder if those folks planing a NWN 2 module succeeded, or if it suffered the painful death of most fanboi projects ? edit: they seem to have made some progress.... though much of that does not seem recent.....

PS:T's graphics haven't held up too badly, no...

On the NWN2 module, IIRC they're creaking toward a demo release. Or were. They already released a kind of pre-demo... thing. It came in about 15 parts, took ages to load, had missing textures and not much of a plot. It's a lot more of a free-roaming kind of thing than the original from what I recall.

I wrote some more detailed impressions on it in this thread closer to when I tried it, though, so it may be more informative. Somewhat inevitably, I ended up doing some comparisons with the original so there's a couple of spoilers if you were hoping to go into Torment blind, and some general stuff on the Planescape-i-verse which may not make sense without some prior reading on the setting.

Interesting. Cheers for the info DI.

I think I might try track down PST and give it a run on my tablet PC, which has a nice lower rez compact screen and runs an x86 OS. I dont mind playing lower-fi games on that than trying to squint at a window on my main gaming/editing etc 30" display.

Interesting that the project leader ended up getting a job with Obsidian which I venture to say would account for the gradual slow-down.

That and I think Witcher arguably took its M17+ rating to better usage than Dragon Age did.

I love the combat, the characters range from great to decent with a few annoyances, and its also getting a sequel. If anything, get a copy to support the developers because they rock for releasing a free expansion of sort that repaired and improved nearly all the launch faults with the game.

As far as Tolkien-esque fantasy goes, its been a personal favorite. It doesn't have the vast amount of characters, quests, etc that Dragon Age does but, in my opinion, Dragon Age's vastness is almost choking while Witcher is a much easier bite to chew on the first playthrough. That said, Witcher can easily take up 60+ hours on the first playthrough.

Considering DLC is being thrown around like crazy between ME2 and DA:O, I'd say get Witcher and Vampire and play through those until the content influx slows on both.
I have to agree with True_Avery on this

I love playing the Witcher and you can get it at a reasonable price now.

I haven't played the 3 you mentioned so I have no clue, but I will probably get those same 3 myself once they drop down in price and all the DLC as been done to them


Feel Free To Disagree.....Most People Do Anyways
