The game is worth it. The ridiculously bad textures don't manage to ruin it either (and they can be modded anyway).

I remember trying to play Fallout 3 with an 8500GT graphics card, everytime I used VATS the game would crash and corrupt my previous 2 saves and quick-save.'Your sacrifice completes my sanctuary of a thousand testicles'

I thought UT Gold was the real game?

The thing is, the difficulty in BG2 peaks and troughs so much that it's hard to be overlevelled for certain areas. Go to Firkraag or the Twisted Rune too early and you'll still get seven shades of shit kicked into you. Vampires can and will mess you up regardless of that extra level. And a mages can be just as invulnerable to everything you have and just as dickish with their spells. That extra bit of XP you got from BG1 soon becomes insignificant, so don't worry.
Advice for if you've never played BG2 before (it'll make sense later): giving the money to Gaelan or Bhodi will move you into Act 3. I'd advise completing every quest you can find before doing that. I think a few Act 2 quests get cut off once you get into Act 3 so it's worth being thorough if you want to do everything.

Does anything get cut off by moving into Chapter 3? I suppose if you choose Bodhi some things probably will.
Anyway you probably shouldn't aim to do everything in a single BG2 playthrough, there is probably too much.Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

I'd say it's hard to do everything in BG2 because some quests are kind of hidden, The Twisted Rune in particular. It's entirely possible though, and makes the game a great way to lose 200+ hours.

I'm sauntering through Alan Wake, just finished the second episode, but I seem to have missed one of the manuscript pages, grr! Apart from the collectible headache, this game is fantastic. The tone, the light, the sounds! And the episodic format is a really nice touch. Neatly divides the game into manageable playsessions.

Splinter Cell: Conviction, Sam Fisher really likes beating the living shit into people in this game. And I'm liking it.
Mostly. The controls are taking some getting used to. And the whole *screen turns black & white when you're hidden* thing is very nice stylistically but often makes distinguishing between lit and unlit areas a pain in the ass.
Also, which idiot thought that Grim's chest should be modelled using beach-ball physics? That guy (probably) needs a good firing.

I dunno what, exactly, it is about the game, but whenever I can't decide what to play, just that I want to play something, Trackmania United just makes itself aware to me once more and I jam on it for an hour or so. What a damn good game it is.

Anyway, I kinda like the game too. Though, Ubisoft can't seem to make up their mind of making their AI either painfully stupid or surprisingly smart, but they did make them annoying. And the stealth (in single-player) was mostly climbing pipes and then dropping/"marking-and-executing" but the co-op was better.

I have to agree that while Conviction was really different, it was one hell of a game

The Steam sale made it hard to sit down and focus on one game, but Grimrock finally sucked me in. I sampled it for about 15 minutes a month ago and didn't find it immediately compelling, but after buying it and investing just a couple minutes longer it's become a pretty compulsive experience.
