    [​IMG] Okay, I know that there are some of us who for our own reasons are *NOT* playing NWN.

    Who will join me!?!

    Let us band together, let us shun the NWN forum, let us tell ourselves that even though our computers are too slow to run NWN that we are still better people. :lol: :spin: :hahaerr::heh: :good:
     
  2. Yes! I shall join this noble cause! I can see through all the cool effects, toolsets, modules, massive multiplayerness, and 10/10 reviews! I know what's what!

    [​IMG] Hey Mathetais - I will play IWD-2 even though I can play NWN and enjoy it - for one simple reason: There can be no doubt about that, per design, IWD-2 will be the better single-player game ;)
     
  4. So instead of "the One Game" We have the "Twin Games" to rule them all? :p:p;):)

    I think it should be:

    one D&D to rule them all, lets face it, the BG saga, IWD/2, NWn, are all great games! I personally may not be able to get IWD2 due to me annoying my mother over NWN but I shall persivere! one small step for me, one big step for amazon.co.uk!

    Ummm... forgive me if I'm wrong Mat, my dear fiery cleric, but... don't you have NWN and aren't you playing on the ALFA server? :p

    Aaah what the heck... sign me up! :grin:

    Ragusa: I agree with every word in your post above. :)

    Yeah....yet another Infinity engine game where you go around in yet MORE snow killing yet MORE of the same goblins. I now simply find the BG and IWD games plain boring compared to the beutiful NWN! And it's story kicks ass :p ;)

    eveningdrive ... I have NWN, and I joined ALFA, but my crappy computer won't run the blasted game! :toofar:

    So this thread is pretty much "sour grapes" ... but I'm allowed a petty moment every now and then ;) :good:

    I'm with you Mat!

    Actually, I was one of that small 4% number of people that in the weekly poll chose "I will buy IWD2 and will not buy IWD2".

    And I will even try to apply ;) to become the online solution writer for IWD2 on SP....

    [​IMG] I see no reason that you can't like both games. I enjoy NWN mostly for the module building and I'll enjoy IWD2 for it's action. These are two different things and are not at odds with each other. Why much I hate NWN to like IWD2? As said above they are all D&D so I see no conflict between them.

    Yeah, I'm not a NWN hater. It's just that IwD1 grabbed me by the balls, and I'm not sure IwD2 is going to let me have them back.
    *sigh*
    Unless, of course, Jermey Soule's replacement completely blows it...

    Besides, I haven't the slightest idea what the story behind NWN is anyways. All I really know is that it's 3d, and uses 3rd edition.

  14. Well, I personally have a reason to hate NWN at the moment, It requires a monster of a PC and I dotn have one.

    Besides, IWDII will have about the same system specs as BGII had.


    P.S.
    I dont care for 3D in computer games, it just looks even more fake to me

    I'm with you good Mathetais! I have the same problem...except that I looked at the game specs before buying it, and thus know that my BLASTED computer won't run it. So, yeah! Down with NWN and up with IWD2!

    [​IMG] I'm in!

    Anything resembling BG2 is for me. :)
    Sure, I have NWN and I haven't made it any further than mid-chapter 1 so I can't make a definitive judgement on NWN yet.

    All the rave reviews of NWN are a pile of BS! Really, I think they are.
    Check out the graphics: all the characters look like they are cut from a piece of wood and the woodcutter never got around to polishing the edges. They look like they were made with Poser 2 or something. :o
    Another thing is that NWN is slow as molasses. Is it necessary to get a $300 graphics card to make it run smooth? :mad:
    I long for IWD2! :love:

    I will rise up and join the noble cause. I too cannot play NWN due to machine not being godlike and therefore say it is crap.

    In true British spirit i am racist against anyone who lives more than 2 miles away and hate anything that i can't see or play.

    Roll on IWD2! :evil:

    Um...Hi. My name is Sapiryl, and, *sob* my computer won't play NWN!

    Actually, it will, but I don't have internet access and besides, TOB has about the same length single player story line as NWN.

    Go IWD2!!! :tie: :tie:
