Return to the Sword Coast...

Well, I had not played anything in the Forgotten Realms in quite a while, but I picked up Neverwinter Nights and really enjoyed what I played of it so far. I like the interface and playability way better than any of the MMORPGs I've played, though it's really not an MMORPG, more like a really advanced Diablo game in some ways.

However, I would like to note that my computer, which is rather more powerful than brent2005's, runs the game LESS well than his computer. Curse him and his fancy graphics card!! Evidently, the graphics card counts for a great deal more than the CPU power. I must now obtain a GeForce 4 so that I can play the game smoothly for GM'ing campaigns.

I've begun some preliminary work on experimenting with a campaign in the toolset. I want to make a neat online tabletop game for some friends to play in, though it will take me a little while to get completely used to D&D 3rd Edition again. Still, Neverwinter Nights so far has won my vote...and unlike Dark Age of Camelot, I think it'll be sticking around longer on my computer. No monthly charges, because the servers are player run... :)

Re: me afraid. me verry afraid.

If I ever get in a D3D campaign RL, I'm gonna use this guy. :>


I don't usually post on people i don't know but i was bored and the name neverwinter nights caught my eye and after reading what you had posted i just have to ask how good is it and what are the specs cause i love Diablo/Baldurs gate games and neverwinter (i belive) hasn't been released here in the backward's UK

Re: Hello

Personally, I like it a lot. It seems a bit resource-intensive, though. The minimum specs are evidently a P2 450mhz w/128M of RAM and a 16M TNT2-class video card. The recommended specs are a P3 800Mhz or more with 256M of RAM and a GeForce 2 or Radeon card. :)

Speaking from personal experience, the video card makes a HUGE difference. I have a 1.8Ghz machine with a TNT2U card, and Brent has a 1.2Ghz machine with a Radeon...the game runs much faster on Brent's machine than on mine.

Re: Hello

hmmmmmm might have to upgrade.....:/ havn't looked for a while but ive only got an 8Mb graphics card, (feel kinda embarrassed now i come to mention it to someone :) ) are there any other RPG games you can recommend that have recently been released?
