Neverwinter Nights 2 Mask of the Betrayer

#1 Post by Cypress » Thu Nov 01, 2007 12:23 am

Ok, I just finished Neverwinter Nights 2 Mask of the Betrayer and I have to vent to some fellow gamers. I played through the original campaign and the MOTB expansion as an elven female. For the most part I thoroughly enjoyed the game...until the ending cutscene...
They do a slideshow of the places your character goes after the adventure and it depends largely on the choices you made throughout the game. The problem is that they showed me as a shadowy human male! :hairhair8: This completely broke my illusion and I feel cheated. :angry7:

I forgive alot of glitches in games as long as the overall story is good...but this little result of Obsidians rush job on MOTB is unacceptable to me. I feel like punching the developer responsible. :boxing:

:angry4:
:cussing:

Whew! Thanks for letting me vent!

Violence is not the answer......

Well, when I played thru as a Human Male.... it showed me a shadowy elven chick at the end......... weird.....
of course....she was in a chain mail bikini and preparing herself for a lifetime of slave-itude at the feet of my FAR superior male-ness.....and human-ness........ like all good NPC elven chicks should......

I may not be perfect, but parts of me are pretty awesome.

Well...as long as Obsidian is screwing every race/gender equally...that makes me feel a bit better. Thanks for listening guys! :hairhair1:

Thats it! I am personally going to make sure that every one of those tranq darts gets shot directly where the sun don't shine mister! :hairhair6:

Although, I think you hit the nail on the head as far as how Obsidian feels about all non male/human characters...and don't even get me started on how they treat Druids in the game! :hairhair7:

On the plus side I have a reason to dust off the elf smileys!

LRO says NWN2 rocks.

What a systems pig that game is. Just like the original. Did they improve the "make your own scnario tools" over the original? you needed to be a fricken programmer to make one back then. Easier to just break out the books, paper and pencils then to even try to learn.
Trolls exist!
They steal your socks. But only the left ones...

...what's with that?

8-[ Well, they said that they improved the toolset...but I don't think so. It seems to be about the same to me, but to be fair I have only futzed with it a little. I am still on my second playthrough (as an evil character) and won't really look at it till I'm done.

Plus, as you stated, its a system pig and so not alot of my friends have it, so my motivation for doing a campaign with it isn't there. :)

Still...it is the best game I have ever played and if you like RPG's I would definitely recommend doing what it takes to get your system up to snuff to play it. It has its glitches and load times are a bit tideous but it is worth it in the end (as long as you play a human male :hairhair7: ). I used that time to read through the book, play with the ferrets, or kick the cats. :-$

It is no substitute for the real thing. Pen and Paper games are much better...but this is an acceptable alternative if you don't have a human group. :hairhair9:

The Witcher is where it's at........ but GT needs to keep his spawn away from it... it has nudity and extreme violence that makes it the perfect game for the cultured adults that we are.... but not for the younglings.....
