Baldur’s Gate Review: An Adventurer’s Tale

So it seems it has been a couple of weeks since I have last posted, and there are a couple of major reasons why.  First reason being that school has been picking up for me lately.  School began for me in mid-August, but the last couple weeks have been even busier with the increasing homework load and the start of my evening calculus class.  I’ve been adjusting to my schedule and truth be told it probably isn’t as bad as my last school year, but my free time is still heavily reduced nonetheless.  As for the other reason, well, that’s what this post is all about.  For the last month, I’ve been playing an older RPG known as Baldur’s Gate.  What?  A Dungeons & Dragons RPG on an anime blog?  Well, truth be told this isn’t something that I’m familiar with either, and I really didn’t know what to expect going into this at all.  Only reason I played this in the first place was because a friend recommended it to me, and I have no idea if I would ever have even heard of it otherwise.  Maybe one of you has actually played this as well, and if not this might just be a different type of game to try out.  It’s certainly well worth it, but be warned: this game will take quite a long time, even more so if (like me) you plan to play the second game as well.  I have yet to start that, as there are a few other things I plan to watch before I get to it, but the first Baldur’s Gate has enough to talk about anyway.
