Is the main Neverwinter Nights 2 game worth playing? Are there any parts of it that are like Nar Shadaa or Korriban or the meeting with the Jedi Council on Dantooine in KotOR 2? I only bought NWN2 Gold for Mask of the Betrayer. It was written by Obsidian. I got about 20 minutes into it and uninstalledI heard somewhere that its actually supposed to be a parody of RPG stories and meant ot make fun of Bioware. But if MotB is more serious, then I would love to play it.
Sure, NWN2 is worth playing. It’s not the best RPG out there, but it’s well worth playing only so you can say that you’ve done so. It’s a very, very typical fantasy story, with plenty of typical characters, so don’t expect to get your mind blown, but it does have some interesting mechanics, such as Crossroad Keep.
With regards to KotOR2, I wish I knew what you were talking about, but it’s been six years since I played it. Specific plot points and locations haven’t really stuck with me.
MotB is amazing. Calling it a parody of RPG stories wouldn’t be fair, since it, much like Planescape: Torment, is all about subverting the tropes of the typical fantasy-RPG genre. It’s not about saving the Universe - it’s about saving you. Plus rainbow bears and beautiful hagspawn bastards thrown in the mix for good measure.
The first sounds you hear in Planescape: Torment after waking up in the Mortuary. Possibly my favorite game of all time. I can’t comprehend what wonderful mind Chris Avellone must be in possession of. He has brought some of the most exceptional games to life: Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 2, PS:T, Alpha Protocol, KOTOR2. What a fucking track record.
Fun fact: The man that voiced Morte, Rob Paulsen, also voiced Yakko in Animaniacs, Anomen in Baldur’s Gate 2, Raphael in TMNT, Pinky of Pinky and the Brain fame and a myriad of others. He’s everywhere.
Manny: Buenos dias. Meche: You’re not the nurse… Manny: No. Meche: You’re not here to give me my medication? Manny: No, but I am here to ease your pain. Meche: Guess they couldn’t save me, eh? Manny: No, but there’s still a chance you could save me.
