Not a bad idea!
I feel there should be some kind of modifier for hot female students, though...

.Volsung. said:The original Baldur's Gate is excellent, it has some kind of dark age atmosphere (perhaps due to the "low" level campaign and the chiseled stone interface, heh). Baldur's Gate II is on a different level. Everything the first one did is there, and then some. Better, more cohesive narrative. More intricate plot and subplots. Much more elaborate NPC's, affecting party stability and opening up dialogue/quests. The combat is even more exciting and dynamic, I'd say, perhaps due to the higher level mage spells.
One drawback of BGII is perhaps that high level D&D campaigns are usually over the top. You're basically walking around with a party of mythical heroes. But if you get past that little detail, it is a satisfying, well rounded computer RPG.
For me, BGII sets the standard for all other cRPG's. Planescape: Torment may have better narrative and reactivity, and others may have less fantasy stereotypes. But BGII features ALL desirable cRPG elements and implements them very well, fantastically in many cases. ›››
Now I want to play it even more!!!
Too bad that I have exams to grade when I return home today... I hope that I can be done with it soon!
03.12.2013 @ 17:13Well, I finally managed to finish Baldur´s Gate I. What a ride!
The endgame content can get really tricky. It took me several tries to win the final battle (although after doing the TotSC content, it´s not as impressive... damned Demonknight!!!).
I really liked the ending cutscene. It was simple, but the final scene with all the statues was stunning.
Now I´m going into BG II. I´ve started it, although I´ve just played like the first 10 minutes. It already feels quite different from BG I, with a different vibe somehow... I´m pretty excited about it!
18.11.2013 @ 12:38Ok, I started playing the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion content for BG I. Went to the island where they found that shipwreck, to investigate it. Those damn
So now I went back to the initial village in the island and it turns out that
I´m really enjoying this part of the expansion! After I´m done with this island, off to Durlag´s Tower (which I understand is quite tough as well).

.Volsung. said:The main quest line takes you back to Candlekeep and eventually you get back outside and know who to face next. This is when I take a detour and go to Ulgoth's Beard to complete the expansion quests including Durlag's Tower.
After that, you can go back to Baldur's Gate and start the final stretch.
Be prepared. Tales of the Sword Coast is a juicy, old-school expansion taking up more than 10 hours. ›››
Great, thanks for the heads up!
