Let’s play Baldur’s Gate II:Shadows of Amn

If you’ve played Pillars of Eternity but you haven't played Baldur’s gate, well you have a treat ahead for you. Actually scratch that, if you have any interest in video games at all, clear your schedule for the next 80 hours or so, you’re about to have a blast!

Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn is a classic Dungeons and Dragons style RPG in that it has complex stat tables, classes, and “rolls” for randomized damage or buffs during combat, but you won’t feel bogged down by these details because the environment, the characters, and the story are so compelling. Many people don’t realize they really would like the table-top version of D&D until they go to learn the rules and realize it’s exactly like the RPGs they’ve been playing for years on their PCs....

Originally a Bioware title, but recently “enhanced” by different developers, you’ll see so much of what makes other AAA Bioware titles so popular and successful in Baldur’s gate--but in a much more...refined way. At the heart of your journey in Baldur’s Gate II is the decision you’ll make to either resist the evil that you discover is in your very nature, or embrace it instead, and become an all-powerful Lord of Murder.

So if you’re interested in Pillars of Eternity, or just complex isometric RPGs in general, you’ve got to check out Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn.

Gary no! Why, Gary!!

Did I mention there are dragons involved?
