They work in a small liberal arts college library, and share a house in Colorado with their husband Jaybird, three cats, and what looms ever closer to ten thousand books. She is identifiable as genderfluid, trans, farm-raised, citified, and bisexual, among a plethora of other adjectives.

    I have some bad news. Baldur’s Gate Enhanced is not the game that we played on the consoles (those were the Baldur’s Gate Dark Alliance games, if I recall correctly).

    That game is one that you could, indeed, enjoy. However, it’s one of those games where you roll up a character and alternate between “role play” fetch quests and dice-throwing combat. The Dark Alliance games were awesome and I wish they still made similar ones (hey, anybody out there, does anybody make similar ones?) but that’s going to be an awesome game that is a *COMPLETELY* different experience.Report

      @jaybird Dagnabbit!

      I’ll probably still check it out but I really wish it was the other one….

      Thanks for the heads up.Report

      No, it’s just the Baldur’s Gate game that revitalized and reinvented the computer RPG industry. 🙂

      it’s old and clunky mechanics now (and also ADND 2.0 – -THACO!), but it was an incredibly pivotal game for it’s time.Report

        Oh, indeed!

        But if Maribou booted up Baldur’s Gate in the hopes of playing Dark Alliance like we used to… well, she’s going to find that the “rolling up the character” is absolutely awesome and then she’ll find herself wandering around the city trying to find somebody’s medication instead of kicking butt like we used to do together.Report

    Still rolling through witcher 3.

    Looking for the next game.

    The GF surprised me with a small gathering of my friends to celebrate my birthday Sat night. Good food, good wine, good company. Might have to marry her 🙂Report
