    Default Who's playing Champions of Norrath?

    ... and who's playing it ONLINE?

    It's like Deja Vu after playing Xbox D&D Heroes, and with Dark Alliance II out now there's no shortage of this game style, is there? What I like about Norrath is that it's online compatible though. I haven't gone online but I've spent some time getting familiar with the controls and the characters so I'm just about ready.

    Nothing like a good hack & slash! Hoping it's even better with three friends online.

    I'm a little bit behind in the genre (just got Dark Alliance for the GameCube yesterday)... But it does sound interesting.

    I played a demo and it was a fun game.

    Default Norrath!

    I will be buying this one (hopefully they still have my Norrath babes pre-order calendar) soon. I can't wait to hack n' slash it. I'll have to put down Baldur's Gate 2 for it.

    And Joe, I'd love to play it online witcha. I am on vacation the first half of next week, so we should plan a time/date. What time EST do you game?

    Any other takers?

    This means I have to buy the game and do some questing before then to get a levelled up useful character. I lean towards the Magic Users. Are we balancing a party or just going for it?

    I'm using the Monk Drow in Baldur's 2, since I know I'll want to play it again all the way through with a Magic User character (but not the other way around if I already finished it with a Magical one.)

    I will be playing this, as soon as I finish Dark Alliance II. I too played the demo, and liked the feel of the game. I have my issues with Dark Alliance II, but since I beat D&D heroes, and the the origional on Xbox, I had to tackle the sequel one as well. I hope the game is supported and sells well, does anyone have the numbers this past week on how well it did?

    I've been playing it online since its release. A friend and I meet up to play. It's great. If you ever do take Norrath online, let me know!

    I was a huge fan of dark alliance 1, havent gotten a chance to buy 2 yet, but norrath seems like it will meet my hack n slash needs. Im not a magic person, I like getting close up on the action. I saw the game at blockbuster today $24 new, how much did you guys pay for it? I did not buy it because I was broke so instead I bought castlevania:SotN brand new and sealed for $15 (GH Version). Believe it or not this is the first time I am playing this game, I was never a huge fan of castlevania games, and then I tried lammnet of innocense and liked it. So far im liking SotN, great music and I actualy feel like im being rewarded for beating the monsters now Also in the begining when dracula turns into that huge beast my eyes lit up, it was amazing how great this game looked for its time

    For all you fans of WARGAMES.

    Anyone get the pre-sale calendar- Babes of Norrath? I signed up for the presale, but didn't make it in time (within 48 hrs of release) for the presale goodness.

    It supports the headset and the keyboard. I've been able to muddle through random online games without either but a headset works best, especially if you're going to be trading with people online.

    Cool - just be on AIM around 8 tonight or PM me your phone number and I'll give you a call when it's gametime with the secret code.

    You're going to need a LOT of leveling up though. I'm level 24 and two of the guys I've been playing with are 17-19.

    Tried it as a rental last night. Of course blockbuster gave us the french manual with it, so just guessing on how things work.

    Pretty much the same fun as Baldur's Gate. Which is good...

    What's D & D Heroes like?

    Pretty much the same thing, except D&D Heroes doesn't have online play, it's a little shorter (though I haven't finished Norrath yet so I'm not sure just how big it is yet), and the inventory management system is much simpler. In Norrath you have a pretty complex weapon/armor customization system, you can add up to four items to your weapons and armor to do things like increase their speed, damage bonuses, your personal regeneration, resistances, etc.

    They're both really fun games. As are the other Baldur's Gate titles.
