Oh dear. Started playing Baldur's Gate II last night. It's...extraordinarily fun. RPGs are becoming increasingly refined as the years go on (remember the old text adventures? You are standing in an open field, west of a white house.). All of this is working towards the ultimate culmination of almost two decades' worth of RPGing for me...Never Winter Nights.
Out of curiousity, I'd like to hear some opinions regarding Icewind Dale. Have you played it? Have you played BG2 yet? How do they compare? Should I bother picking up a copy of IWD, or should I just let it go? Let me know what you think.
I'm going to start keeping a running diary of my BG2 experiences (no spoilers, don't worry) over at my site as part of my regular weblog. Why? Well...I don't have a whole lot of spare time these days, and what little of it exists will likely be spent in front of the game machine, fulfilling my long-time RPG addiction. In other words: I don't have much of a life as it is, and since I'll be spending a lot of it playing that game, it's likely all I'm going to have to talk about for a while :)
In other news: there's not a whole lot of other news. If there is, I've already talked about it elsewhere.
