Since June, DDO’s had an expansion and an update- both released in a half-baked, bug-ridden state and a dozen patches and hotfixes- all breaking yet another thing while not actually fixing half the things it was supposed to. I’ve been looking for something less… futile? At least in the interim while Turbine gets its shit together and hires people who can actually write code (or until the ship sinks).
Fortunately, while my hopes for Diablo 3 were papercut to death, there’s a couple of things I can be legitimately exited about: Torchlight 2 and a revamp of Baldur’s Gate. I’m particularly interested in BG, since I only ever played the sequel. I’d heard that after BG2, the original would be a little meh, at least in terms of graphics and gameplay. So here it is, and it’s been long enough since I ran through BG2 that I think I could play them both straight though.
