NWN2: Mask of the Betrayer Preview, screens, and clip

Quote:
It's no secret that when NWN2 shipped there were a lot of issues. In fact there are still issues even today, but a lot of people have forgotten that when the original NWN released, it too had a ton of problems that took BioWare many patches to fix. Thankfully Obsidian has risen to the same challenge and has really put the effort to support the game, and while I can't get into details, they've done things even beyond their contractual obligations and enough to probably make their accountants pull their hair out. There's no doubt that Obsidian cares about the game and the community. This expansion really shows that commitment to deliver something they are passionate about because they love making games.

To give an example of how polished the game will be, virtually all games these days have a "zero-day" patch. Basically it's a patch for things that couldn't make it before production that players need to make sure the game will play ok. Obsidian was able to complete that patching process before they delivered the gold master. So that's not to say that game will never get patched, but it does show the high level of polish they were able to deliver for what is sure to be a great Epic level game that will probably score higher than the original.

Yeah, tell me when they fix the bugs. I was about to beat the game but right before I got to the final boss I encountered an error that deletes your saved data for some reason, and I saw a bunch of other people who encountered the same thing. I felt like I wasted a lot of time.

I have friends who completed the game fine, so its a random bug. Have you checked to see if any newer patches are out? I know one came out a few weeks ago that supposedly fixed up alot of stuff.

Some of the pics are just insane looking, especially the sword being held by the orc, or at least I think it was an orc.
