though im kinda worried how the machanics will effect it.
I'm skeptical, but hope for the best. Would like to see a new NWN!
sounds diablo-esque in terms of multiplayer. cant wait. but then again most games that arent out yet sound really awesome to me..
Hope it's more like NWN1 than NWN2 as NWN2 was just crap in multiplayer.
It's an online game? LOL We need a new internet connection plan now lol
Interesting, I don't remember Cryptic having a hand in these in the past, or Atari, what happened to Bioware? Either way, I'll be keeping my eyes open on this one.
bioware stopped making these a long ass time ago namely when black isle got done they became troika which went kaboom then came Obsidian but basically theyve all failed to provide stable games since those gems years ago namely BG and BGII SoA even now with NWN2 with crossfire 5850s the NWN2 runs like crap averages 45 or so FPS in crowded fights roughly the same performance of my old 8800gts 640mb. Mask of the Betrayer ran much better but the 3rd expansion Storm of Zaherir or w/e broke mask of the betrayer so yea not been a fun ride. My guess where Obsidian failed aka former black isle staff.
Biowares name will be on it for some things but basically its usually been former black isle staff working on NWN my guess is after so many failures on the staffs part they were passed over by the rights holder aka Atari looks like they decided to give someone else a shot at giving the series new life and well hopefully better optimization.
so far tho they all pretty much fail Bioware isnt so much RPG maker as they are action now and Black Isle and its reincarnates made great games but always full of bugs and serious issues.. VTMB from troika NWN2 from Obsidian etc etc. Biowares broken expansion to Dragon age dosent inspire confidence from them either. Hopefully Cryptic studios can do a better job and give us a new fresh spin on the series and have it actually run properly but since Cryptic is an MMO developer i wont hold my breath....
City of Heroes / Villains - sold to NCsoft who acquired all of the team dedicated to this franchise
Champions Online - when Marvel Universe was canceled they salvaged the game by changing it to champions online
Star Trek Online - newest game released by them currently
I'd rather have to see Ptolus campaign setting instead.. Forgotten realms is nice, but we need a new atmosphere for DnD..
in anycase, seeing Drizzt do Urden or good ole Cad' in game would be interesting this time around..
so that means no monthly fee?
We need some thing like NWN1 FREEDOM no need to worry about what another party member is doing or even what a server is running. A tool set that was actually fun to use and not a pain in the ass like it was with NWN2.
I don't hold much hope really as the flaws with area creation i see even in Dragon Age which was path finding or being able to click a place and move to it. Was the same deal with NWN2 when making area's. Worsed part of that was once you gotr it how you wanted you would find that parts were not click.
End point is that with NWN1 people could go were they wanted without dragging everyone else with them and it was so much fun adding area's to NWN1 modules.
Basically the opposite of what nwn2 was except for the story.
nwn1 if you can hear me i love you
This. I wonder if the new NWN will be based on 4E. Probably......Blargh.......
ugh gross it just makes me feel dirty and not good. 3.5 or bust.
EDIT: also don you need to DL those campaigns i showed you you dont understand their awesome. I think at one point i even got a little emotional.
EDIT2:: I really REALLY hope this isnt open PvP. If any ARENA based. I hate it when im trying to enjoy the actual campaign and im walking through town and some punk 14yr/o runs up after a 9 hour grind session and rapes me out of some ally. that SERIOUSLY agrivates me. I hate online games barring GW for THIS reason. I dont care if im beaten. but people dont leave you alone. You cant even enjoy some games with some of the player base they have.
Interesting. If they recruited Savatore to assist with the storyline, this could be an a great game.
Yeah if they look back to the roots of the game.
Been thinking of starting a NWN1 server again but it took a lot of my time before due to adding stuff to the modules ( which i think i have a few still ). Like extra areas new creatures locked chests that require a thief skill which if broken would destroy the contents. Then we had a second server with the same modules of the default campain and made then harder for the more experienced we even got the last addon working pretty dam well in MP too.
Very interesting take on the MMORPG or not for that matter...
Intrigued but equally doubtful, I will be happy to watch as it develops though.
I haven't read any Drizz't, but have read other Forgotten Realms books by Salvatore.
I'm willing to bet that the "magic plague" would heavily feature.
You owe it to yourself to pick these books up; they are classics.
I have 2 of 3 books, hardbound, of The Knights of Myth Drannor series though, still finding the 3rd book at a bargain price. I bought those two for just under $9.
Let's just say I'm not really that sold with a drow. I am a Lawful Good Human Swashbuckler-Wizard-Eldritch Knight after all LOL
what type of MMO is this comparable to?
wth, youve lost half your childhood! This guy made the whole dual sword wielding / fast moving / agility based kind of character bad ass.. and mind you that was in the early 90s.. before any big eyed anime stuff made it a staple for the stereotypical emo-assasin character.
In anycase, yeah.. I think there are reprints of Dark elf Trilogy circling about.. You can check PowerBooks or FullyBooked store in the phillipines afaik ;P
