So, my favorite game ever is Baldur's Gate aaaand I got the extended edition which I recently got to playing. No regrets, the only thing I miss is a bag of holding so I can drag more loot around.
For all the "recruit all the drow!" going on, I still killed Drizzt. After well over 20 minutes of kiting the overpowered ass. Viconia deserves the best armor the game could provide, ok?
On a related note: Mark Meer is the voice actor of Baeloth and he has cosplayed him and you should all google that. Just saying.
Yeah... this happens to me a lot in BioWare games. No matter how often I tell myself I'll try a new configuration when I replay Mass Effect, I always wind up toting Tali and Wrex along to absolutely everything that isn't Noveria. Or I'll promise to try Zevran this time, honest, only to once again swap him out for Leliana. And everyone else in Kirkwall has to sit tapping their feet, because Varric, Merrill, and Aveline never, ever leave my side.
I really need to go back and play Baldur's Gate properly (I loved the story so much but I cheesed so many fights with traps).
Really hope your using mods...makes the game that much better.At least the party banter one is a MUST.
Mark Meer is a pretty awesome human in general.
I haven't played Baldur's Gate, but I definitely do get stuck with my designated parties. I don't think I've ever not taken Garrus in any of the Mass Effect games. Even when he was continually dying in ME1 because I definitely didn't need a long-rage tech guy with me and tried to force him into front-line battles. Poor Garrus.
@Guest: I am really bad at changing things up, but in my defense I would like to say that I DID have like four party members before this team happened that just... kinda died off and got replaced because they were rubbish and whatnot. So I did try! I did T_T
@Norgrath: Yes, do it! It's absurd how much I remember as I replay it. Entering an area that looks like just, oh like your regular forest, but no. I remember. This is spider territory. There are traps *everywhere* IMOEN GET IN FRONT NOW and let's slowly crawl through this area, inch by terrified inch.
@Sharp-Claw: I'm not actually, because I want to see what the extended edition brought to the table. If I play it again though I'm probably going to mod the shit out of it.
@Guesty Guestface: Honestly, Garrus and Tali were my main team in all of ME. It was sheer luck that they were also the ones you could recruit every time.
Yup, le me is late again :D Mainly because I've been... wait for it... replaying Baldur's Gate this week. But hey, I managed the unthinkable and didn't recruit Edwin... (I'm aiming to finally have Eldoth and Skie in the party after 15 years of ignoring them but I highly doubt it will happen.)
Baeloth is a keeper. Also, I GOOGLED THE COSPLAY. Holy Sarevok's thighs.
@warrion: No Edwin?? ????? Does not compute?
I've since this comic replaced Imoen with Safana. I feel mighty proud of myself, I will have you know.
NO EDWIN. I weep every time a new map loads. Will probably have to buy him something pretty (like robes) in the next playthrough to atone, too.
At least I have the Superhero of Gloom, aka Xan. I like him as much as Edwin... and then there's Shar-Teel, Ajantis, Viconia, and Imoen who will soon be replaced by Coran. Bless the Happy Patch, otherwise they'd all have murdered each other (or my flimsy male elven sorcerer, who totally has the hots for Xan) by now.
And you get a Bhall/skull shaped cookie for Safana! I almost never use her...
@warrion: To be honest, Safana is on the team because she was the first rogue I stumbled across after Imoen. And after a decade of "Hiya! It's me, Imoen!" flashbacks... change was much needed.
