[SpykeZ]Baldur's Gate Rumors start your engine! - Page 7

post #61 of 102
This to me was the last good game from bioware that I was able to sit down and enjoy. I never finished Dragon Age or Pt 2, Neverwinter Nights or Pt. 2 either. A true classic adventure true to the D&D spirit that got me through a whole summer when I was in H.S. and early college....

I think Dragon Age was the last thing we'll ever see to a properly done RPG adventure, it had a lot of short comings but I'd be a fool to say it wasn't a well done game considering they didn't have the DnD license to do what they more than likely wanted. The fact they were able to create that world and story without needing DnD, I was a bit impressed, but if they did have it? I'm sure they would have done a lot more.

Why all the negativity for Neverwinter Nights? That game was one of the best gaming experiences I ever had, I played it when I was 11 years old and it still holds incredible nostalgia to me. Why I never played NWN 2 I will never know...

I nearly beat BG 1 the year prior when I was 10. And now ten years later im playing BG2 tongue.gif

I'd love for an HD Baldur's Gate. They should redo the Icewind Dale series too, where I got my awesome avatar from smile.gif

I bought the original NWN, and then I even had to buy the massive collectors edition for it I found at a best buy in Edmonton (Biowares hometown)

Yeah found it! Still sitting on my shelf back home, the box is huge...

I feel ya. I'd love more from the Forgotten Realms universe. They should have based Dragon Age in Faerun.

I'm a little curious about this comment. What is it about DnD that you feel makes a game have a better world and story than one without it? Do a lot of people feel the same way?

DnD has had decades to work out flaws and change things, as well as let its world evolve. It's one of the best systems out there imo, at least 3.5.

Shadowy Figure- Raise Dead : Infinity Engine
For years, I clung to the memory of it. Then the memory of the memory.
And then... it returned. Better than it was before.
Pore over the tapestries and works of art hanging from our walls if you wish, Child of Bhaal... perhaps you will find a clue. But patience, ah... patience would reveal it all.

I now actually have hope that this is an HD remake.

I know NWN is viewed less in my eyes just because it was so much less than Baldur's Gate. There was no party system...you only had a single henchman that you had limited control over and if you found a nice magic item that your PC couldn't use you couldn't even give it to them. Plus removing the party system took away a lot of the fun that BG had in the way of character interactions. I don't believe there was a romantic interest unless you want to count hiring some prostitutes. Plus I think a lot f people were turned off by the DnD 3rd edition rules. With that system you didn't need a party since you could get so powerful so quickly and easily. In Baldur's Gate a room full of low level goblins could be deadly to a single fighter...even one with some experience (though equipment might make them need natural 20's to hit him). In NWN the fighter would just greater cleave them into paste. Really it was the lack of a party system for me more than anything though...that is what I love the most about DnD no matter if it is in a PC game or on a table top and they rather disgusted me by taking that away.

Though I don't typically say anything negative about NWN because the multiplayer aspect of was pretty cool though it wasn't really enough to keep me playing it for too long. NWN2 was the same way...I never even finished the solo player aspect of that game. They brought back the party system, but then had it so buggy that party members wouldn't be able to walk to where you needed them without getting stuck on apparently nothing or you'd give them orders and they would stand there dancing for two or three rounds before they did it. It was just too aggravating...especially since they did the monsters right and made it so that most of the game it wasn't easy for the PC to just solo it on the harder difficulties.

I don't want to get too excited at the possibility of a HD remake if it means facing disappointment if it turns out to be false.
