I love the puzzles actually, the combat as well. It's a nice break-up from my turn-based heavy diet. :)

One minor quibble I do have however is with the lack of (at least so far…) joinable NPCs or…

Bah this particular viewpoint as expressed on auto-mapping is pretty wimpy as far as I'm concerned. :D I mean, where's the commitment?

I couldn't resist; bought it yesterday and installed it, as I loved the first game. I took a break from my Divinity:Original Sin session and created a party and fiddled around for an hour or so….

Are there any specific improvements or content additions set for Trials of the Luremaster and Heart of Winter. If so, what are they?

You forgot the games that Arx was inspired by: the Ultima Underworlds. :)
But I agree, it's a nice touch when done well. Dark Souls has a key section like this within the Tomb of the Giants where…

I love the return to classical party sizes and the combat does indeed look attractive, yet I'm left a little cold by the changing perspective which negates some of the Might and Magic feel. I'll…

Bah, since when did character creation become synonymous with mere "character appearance?" Show me some stats and stat manipulation then we'll talk. :P

Icewind Dale II never had an expansion made for it. I think perhaps this would be a far more interesting and sterner test of Beamdog's capabilities than the relatively redundant enhanced edition work…

Actually Captain the sid theme in Matt's intro is a remix/cover of Rob Hubbard's great "Thalamusik" or "Sanxion" tune. :) This was made in '86 so I don't think there's any danger of anything being…

That's a fantastic little interview which answers some of my questions, thanks for posting Couch.

It would have been both nostalgic and extra-uber-cool however if Matt had have dropped a question…

I have to vehemently disagree with this; the Krynn trilogy can stand proudly next to the Pool series as far as I'm concerned. The Krynn games also featured journal entries for the player to read…

A fun thread, some interesting reading.

Just the mentioning of Ruins of Myth Drannor got me nostalgic enough to track down my old thread when I finally completed the game on the 'Watch.
