    Haha. Oh god, the romantic subplots.

    I remember the musical cue for them.

    The background music would segue into a softer, more melancholic piece.

    Oh god it was so tacky.

    I wouldn't create a new character if I moved on to BG2. The legacy of Buffy must continue!

    Ugh blargh vomit

    Does Haer'Dalis have a romance thing? 'cause he's dreamy.

    actually, for all the times i've played that goddamn game, I've never once completed a romance subplot.

    If you try to romance Aerie and you have Haer in your party, a love triangle thing starts up.

    If you Romance Jaheira and have Aerie in your party, our little gentle mage/cleric storms off.

    Edit: why the fuck would I capitalise Romance? And is it even a verb?

    Romance can totally be a verb.

    I.E. Romancing the Stone

    The capitalizing is just wrong.

    I always end up accidentally starting the Jahira romance subplot unintentionally.

    I'm like, 'stop being useless and get over yourself, Jahira!'

    Then the next thing I know, she's all like 'so, hey, do you like an independant woman?'

    and then I'm all like 'What? No! Bros before hos, man. I can't date anyone who was dating someone in my party. It's like, against the wingman code of conduct, or something.'

    Mass Effect is a bad return to form in that case

    The music accompanying the love scenes in that game are so goddamn cheesy

    That's why I kicked her out of my party early.

    I was all "Bitch, leave."

    Then I go up to Aerie and I'm all "Sup, you all sad about losing your wings? It's cool, babe, I'll still love you for what you are." 8-)

    Thanks to this I started Baldur's Gate II again (mainly because I can't get the first one to work). Are there any worthwhile mods for II? I forgot how lame second edition AD&D rules are.

    Right, so I think I'm going to play from Baldur's Gate through the end of ToB. I've never finished either game, and I've never used Tutu.

    Is Bounty Hunter a pretty good class? I loves me some traps, so it always looked like a fun kit.

    Now to go juggle a really unreasonable number of CDs for the next hour.

    Sorry for being a bit lax in updates, dudes! I'll be able to do one tomorrow, I think, but after that I'm not sure. It's Christmas and my wedding, after all!

    The story of Buffy shall continue, have no fear.

    I'm not sure if I'd continue it into BG2, though... As fun as it is to write, Buffy is a really simplistic character with not a big variety in her vocabulary. I'll see, though.

    BTW, went with Witcher. So far, I do not regret the choice, this game is very much in line with the old Black Isle rpgs (though admittedly some of the translation from Polish or whatever could have been better).

    Did you get the original or the Enhanced Edition? I know they rewrote and rerecorded all the dialogue for the EE, so it should sound better in that version.

    I got the EE on Steam (I don't think they even sell the old one there anymore) and the dialogue isn't bad, it's just the occasional misuse of prepositions and whatnot that stands out.

    The cards you collect when you have sex with a woman are goddamn amazing. I remember someone on this forum saying that the game for him basically devolved into trying to have sex with every woman on the list of named characters, and I can see why. It is seriously the best minigame.

    Man, ascension is fucking amazing

    as long as you've been through the game at least once before and know how to get a lot of the best equipment, I mean. Otherwise it might be totally fucking difficult. That first fight might be one of the most difficult improved battles, really.

    Okay, yeah it is. I just kicked the shit out of the last guy in Watcher's Keep on like my second try when it took like an hour to figure out that i should definitely be using time traps in the first fight.
