Yes would be nice, But I think We need little bit more some Pathfinder CRPG :-P Best from some original AP like Curse of the Crimson Throne, Carrion Crown or Jade Empire ;-)

I'd probably pick it up, but a new game using the Pathfinder rules would be better.

This game needs a remaster

 

Not to mention fixes for some long-standing bugs.

As well as the technical spit and polish, bug quashing and FIXING THE CAMERA, I think really that if NWN2 were remastered I would want to see a major reworking of the plot, characters and choices. In essence I think it needs streamlining, getting rid of all the flabby boring stuff and making what remains detailed and reactive.

 

Some of the characters i'd merge, perhaps Khelgar and Casavir, so that one interesting character emerges from two fairly dull and cliched ones. Areas that were unexplored, introduced and then discarded i'd expand to cover multiple roles: Crossroad Keep, Fort Locke and Highcliff Castle i'd probably merge into one gradually changing and evolving location, that opened up as explored and the plot demanded. Highcliff i'd probably make the protagonists home, it is far more striking visually, allows access to the Mere and would serve just as well as West Harbour.

 

The run to Neverwinter i'd try to make a Flight from the Dark like desperate escape, pursued, endangered and deadly. I'd also like to maybe allow multiple routes instead of just one, and have consequences and unique content on each.

 

I could go on, i've written out a veritable campaign based on how i'd GM the OC, though i'd definitely keep most of the core elements as they are well designed. I really don't know why i've thought about this so much when I consider the OC mediocre, strange.

 

Edit: Oh i'd also like the dance of death from the first NWN re-implemented, dodges, parries, attacks etcetera animated. Lord knows why they omitted this.

I'd go for it; my original run through NWN2 was cut short by a broken ankle and a broken computer and a broken laptop.  It was a bad year.

 

Now I have a laptop to play it with (assuming I can find all the discs again) but modern laptops don't come with disc drives, and external disc drives are a pain for long-term laptop playing, IMO.

By far an incomplete D&D collection. I'm missing Storm of Zehir, Temple of Elemental Evil (which I had, played, but never finished), and Planescape: Torment ... a game I admit I've never owned or played.

 

My current Drow Rogue playthrough of NWN2 is fun. I forgot how finicky the camera options can be, but once you get the right configuration, you can whip it around pretty easily.

Well... my Steam library looks like that. My laptop doesn't even have a DVD ROM.

Get out! You lucky dog. You get to play it for the first time. Go offline, go on amazon, or steam, or GOG, or whatever and order it now. As a game it's just ok. As a story that you experience first hand it's outstanding. Best plot, best story, best characters in any game I've ever played. PoE is second.

Wow, high praise from a trustworthy source. I'll pick it up.

This game needs a console version.

I got a Xbox so I could play ReCore, coming Tuesday ... the first game I've seen requiring Win10, 8 GB of RAM, and 2 GB of VRAM ... which means on XB1 it'll be sofa king slow. Also I don't get out much, so probably it's not technically the first game with those requirements. Actually I do go outside a lot.

I wish. Sadly I had to get rid of my pc game boxes (and a lot of my console game boxes and dvd/bluray boxes) for space reasons.

A 64 bits remaster could be very appreciated :yes: , because as much as I love NwN2 and all its expansions, the CPU charge can be very annoying.

I'd buy it for the expansions. I already own it on disc, GOG and Steam, so the enhancements would have to be fairly significant.
