    Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 Out on October 15th

    Has anyone else here ever played Baldur's Gate or it's Sequel? One of my friends who loves both games bought a copy of Baldur's Gate 2 on Steam for everyone in my friend group, and we've had multiple LAN parties enjoying the hell out of the game.

    My friend's wacky Baldur's Gate Adventures
    If you don't know the games, they're RPGs made by Bioware based on the Dungeons and Dragons universe. I've never played D&D (would love to get into it at some point. Hell, I just got into Magic: the Gathering and I'm 30 lmao), but I figured I'd give the game a try. I really like it. But, I will admit, I like it a lot more because we all made extremely stupidly named heros, like we always do for multiplayer games.
    (We had Porkins and Buggles in Phantasy Star Online).
    Here's a bit of backstory and a few fun stories from our adventures.
    So one of my friends was Buggles, again, because that's kind of his trademark name/style. He's a short, fat wild mage (Ah, the shenanigans).
    I was a barbarian named Hulking S. Quire which is a combination of a few in jokes.
    Another friend was Capitan Din Disiel because why not
    We also had Darth JarJar Binks who joined on occasion
    And Blue Babidee who was a non-wild mage.

    Most of the adventure went decently well. A few deaths, but we can be revived so no big deal. In fact, we went pretty far without having to spin the wheel of the wild mage.
    Our first spin came when we were fighting a boss. Buggles tried to cast magic missile, but instead changed the boss's gender. SUPER helpful. He was so embarassed by the addition of booblies that he keeled over then and there.
    Ok, no it did literally nothing except change the gender symbol thing.
    The second time was much more...fruitful. After Buggles cast Magic Eye to scout a new area, we saw a Beholder. I don't know D&D, but even I know Beholders are not to be fucked with.
    But Din Diesel screamed "LEEEROOOOOOY JENKIIIIIIINS" and charged in. Hulkington, being JUST intelligent enough to read, decided it was a good idea to run after him. Buggles and Blue face palmed, but joined in for support.
    Again, Buggles tried to cast Magic Missle, but this time released Petrifying Gas...all around the enemies. And Din Diesel and Hulkington. Not...the most helpful thing, but...effective.
    There was also a time when we were all running away from some strong monster, and Hulkington was lagging behind because he can't walk and think at the same time, and DIN DIESEL CLOSED THE DOOR ON HIM.
    What an ass.

    But probably the most enjoyable part was an early game tavern that was also a brothel. Din Diesel REALLY wanted to visit the brother, but we wouldn't let him until we saved the village. Only problem was that with saving the village, the brother is shut down...There was a mad Din Diesel after that. He was so mad he almost snitched on a married man who liked to frequent the brothel because his wife was...not the nicest person in the world. We finally convinced him to not be an ass again, and the man can now "happily" live with his wife, who is none the wiser.

    I really like the second game. It's rather text heavy, but it has some really damn good voice acting. It's a blast if you just mess around with it, and make really dumb names. Hell, you can even use custom images if you mess around with things.

    I haven't played the more traditional Baldur's Gate PC games, but I did spend a lot of time with Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance on the PS2.

    Dude, I love that game. The sequel was decent too, but the first was one was my favorite. Graphics are still beautiful to this day.
