    loot that is a good question how does that work,

    is it a complete unknown like oblivion (bad)
    or is it like Wow where we know all the stats of every item (good)

    From what I dimly recall overhearing there's no multiplayer, but there will be modding tools. Don't hold me to that though!

    As for loot, it's a mix. There are randomised random treasures when it comes to gold, trinkets and low level spells and so on, but there's also pre-set specific weapons and items. Basically, like it was in BG2. You know that you're going to get Casomyr sword for doing X quest, but you don't know which three Level 3 spells you might get.

    Very, very excited about this. If it achieves even half of the greatness of the Baldur's Gate games it'll be fantastic.

    seems like the game just needs some AA to me (and of course the 6+ months of engine optimisations), second last picture didn't look too bad, just needed some aa.

    Do want.

    A lot.

    However, if it's got SecuROM Online Activation on it, as hard as it would be for me to do, I'd not buy it.

    Greatly disappointed with the distinct lack of classes. First we had the epic BG2, then it got whittled down for Mass Effect, and now it has been whittled down even more!

    Yeah, no multiplayer - in particular no co-op, is really disappointing. This is one of the features that made the BG series so great IMO. So meh, I think I'm going to skip this game entirely now. Sad, I was looking forward to.

    I predict it won't come anywhere near the greatness of the CRPGs of old.
    And I am never wrong.
