    If graphics are a vital selling point, then you'd best save your money. The graphics are probably around original xbox quality. I started playing before getting my 360, and the NWN graphics were better than any PS2 games, so I was thrilled. After of year of 360, NWN graphics are showing their age to me, but i still love the gameplay.

There is a good free one out called Pocket Legends. You can fight zombies, skeletons, etc. as an Enchantress,Warrior, or Archer. Its something I think Paeter would like. Wink

    Being an unemployed college student I don't have the money for games so any money I do get right now is going to my preorder for Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep on the PSP

    Baldur's Gate

    Post  Paeter on August 19th 2010, 8:49 pm

    I'm seriously considering purchasing the 4 in 1 collection of Baldur's Gate for PC. Love Bioware and have read some good reviews, but haven't talked to many who have played it. Anyone have any thoughts on these games?

    Well, I went ahead and bought Baldur's Gate (4 in 1 set) and I'm really digging it! Although I'm grateful for the cheat codes available online to level up and get some extra gold.

    Without a 2-3 level head start I found the game to require much more thinking then I felt like investing in a game this old. But with the slight level boost the pace has increased and the challenge is still there without bogging me down in micro-management.

    Great so far!

    I've been playing Lego Star Wars II with my nearly-5-year-old daughter. Oh yes.

    I suck at action games but I've heard those lego games are pretty easy. What's your take Steve?

    The Lego series are primarily puzzlers, not action games. They just masquerade as action games because of the platformer interface. We've got Star Wars (complete series), Indiana Jones 1, and Batman. Heard good things about IJ2 and Harry Potter.

    The action in the series involves destroying the landscape and solving terrain puzzles. Periodically, you have to stop to fight goons, but these are mostly just there to increase the general difficulty level. You don't have lives to lose, it just lowers your score. You can't actually lose the game.

    The sheer variety of actions available makes these games hugely entertaining, but it is the licensing that turned them into runaway hits. LEGO did another series of puzzler/builder games on "LEGO Island" that were essentially identical in game play to the licensed games. They just never took off. If you like puzzlers the licensing makes these games engaging and cool. If you like the licenses, the puzzles and interface makes the game play accessible and repeatable. Good stuff!

    Sweet! I'll have to keep my eye out for them! Are they best played with someone else, or on your own?

    I was always a big puzzler fan on the Speccy and Amiga, so I get a kick out of that on Lego Star Wars, but the action sequences and demolishing things into tiny bits of Lego is fun too! The fact that you cannot die makes it a little easy, but at the same time makes it fun (if a little frustrating!) to play with a little sidekick Smile

    I've had my best experiences playing solo, as I get very focused on the game. Playing with my children - six and nine - really doesn't do anything for me in the way of accomplishing in-game goals. Some teamwork with another adult can make the games substantially easier as you can effectively run interference for each other. These games have provided a HUGE number of hours of entertaiment for our family.

    Was looking for a way to make the weekend my own special "guy weekend" since my wife is out of town on a church women's retreat. Just when I'd run out of ideas I realized that the last DLC for Dragon Age Origins came out this week and I hadn't played the one before it, either. And since I only spent about 3 bucks on comics this week, I didn't hesitate to drop 10 bucks to get both of the DLCs.

    Woohoo! Back in the world of Dragon Age and havin' a ball! Can't wait to see what Morrigan has been up to!

    Neat to see the Lego games getting the love. I never thought I would get the appeal of them, but I eventually saw the light. After much energy and interest in a game called The Force Unleashed, my wife came home with the Lego Star Wars Saga edition, which turned out to be a super long game (and was super cheap, too). Then followed Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Batman, and now, lately, Lego Harry Potter. I imagine the Lego Clone Wars will be next eventually. I'm hoping they will adapt The Lord of the Rings, because that would be just completely bonkers!

    Just finished the DLC for Dragon Age and it pretty much rocks. Left me wanting to play more of my second Dragon Age run-through, but I'm also getting a kick of Baldur's Gate (which Dragon Age is said to be the successor of by Bioware).

    Which to play? What to do? So... much... gaming goodness... Head... about to...
    affraid (Cut to classic "Scanners" clip) BOOOOM!!!
