lol arcanum

-no story (the excuse for it doesnt count)
-only 1 or 2 worthwhile items in the game
-random lvl grinding

Here is how the game went - run around, get one-shot by everything.

Get tp and master sword/evade (wahtever it was called)

Get magical sword that doesnt get damaged

Watch yourself hit everything 20 times a second, including rock golems and lol.

Give elf bitch a bow at the end of the game - watched her go through 500 arrows in about 15 seconds.

Show up at dark elf village, realize its 3 trees and you have been trolled. Kill everyone.

Does Neverwinter Nights even work on new computers (w/Vista or Windows 7)? Mine just bitches at me.

If you're talking about NWN2... meh. It's fun the first time, but after that it's a drag. Not very well made. Mask of the Betrayer almost makes up for it, and is probably the closest game to Planescape: Torment, but it still isn't Torment.

It also isn't Arcanum's story since you AREN'T Nasrudin reborn since Nasrudin never fucking died as he tells you himself. It's like you only gave the story the most cursory of glances and then whined about the lack of story. In short, you're a troll.

Original Campaign: meh, standard generic "the world is in danger from ancient evil" fare its not good but neither is it bad. Just meh.

Anyway NWN OC and NWN2 OC are decent but nothing special. NWN1 really shines in the mod community (but they've got a bunch of shit as well), NWN2 had two REALLY good expansions called Mask of the Betrayer and Mysteries of Westgate. (Storm of Zehir sucked)

That was one of the most amusing parts of the game.

Also the endgame where you run into the supposed BBEG who while being a complete asshole, actually had no idea what the hell was going on back in the mortal realm, and basically answered with "they said I did WHAT?!".

>> No.9529219


Y u mad tho? Oh, cause you can't deny anything I said.


I finished the game, but I stopped paying attention somewhere in the first 10% of the game and just started around and killing everything. I really wanted to pay attention to the story, but it bored the shit out of me. I guess I liked the whole "humans stealing tech from dwarves because they are so ambitious and silly" idea, but all the side quests were lame as hell - the magic ball, cleaning the sewers, orc rights, etc.


Thanks to you both, I will figure out what to pick up based on that.

Donn Throgg became a leading political activist in the fight for orcish rights. In time, he legalized orcish labor unions, secured the vote for all citizens regardless of race or gender, and became the champion of equal rights and justice in Tarant. Before long, he was begrudgingly voted into the Industrial Council and, in a few years, he sat at its head.

Is that the one where you can get a whore suit with a dildo inside it? I distinctly remember slutting myself out to dockworkers and getting loads of STDs...

By the way, why do you guys hate the NWN OC? Sure, it's the standard Bioware "ANCIENT EVIL RETURNS" plot, but it has some nice subplots, like that quest in the forest, where you have play judge and there's like ghost town right outside and shit. And the snowglobe adventure, that was fun. Seriously, the NWN OC was very cool. It's just pretty combat-heavy if you're used to stuff like Baldur's Gate.

i can't say exactly why, but i do know i hate the animations, the models, the characters, the setting and the story.

the story didn't even pretend to be a priority, it just sort of sunk into the background while you directed your boneless cardboard box golem to kill every monster ever featured in D&D.

00 is not a game though, although there are spin offs. It's also relatively new.

While the story wasn't spectacular, it wasn't all that bad, it simply was average had an ok presentation. Seeing how there was only one good questionably RPG game released that year (Morrowind) and it also had shitload of flaws, It was very worth playing

I was a warrior and I did all the sidequests. Most of them anyway.

And I guess it all comes down to that I didn't really care for the gameplay. I mean, it was barely a step over Diablo. The main plot wasn't very interesting either, but the subplots and the setpieces really drew me in. Perhaps it was because I was younger. :)

worth playing, yeah, but not worth saving, for me. i still play SOTU once every few years, but i'll probably never touch NWN1's OC again.

It's ok bro, I enjoyed NWN's OC too.
