If this issue of GameCola seems somewhat rushed, there's a reason for it. With the new school year now upon us, the staff of your favorite free online gaming newsletter, and myself even more so, needs to learn how to effectively divide our time between educational efforts and gaming goodness. So please, bear with us during these trying times, and soon enough we will again be putting forth issues that are up to par with what our established readership expects.
Before I start describing this game, I must address the people who have never heard of it. First off, get out from under yer damned rock. Secondly, it is not called 'Neverwinter' because it is never winter, it is a town named after Halueth Never and, before you ask, it isn't always night time. Now that that is out of the way, on with the show. Neverwinter Nights could possibly be the best PC game I have ever played... ever. It has a great storyline, memorable characters, tons of weapons, skills, spells, and anything else you could imagine. Yes, it does have a whore house where you can 'hire' a lady/guy friend for the night, but that is nothing compared to the rest of this spectacular game. NWN has completely customizable characters, allowing you to choose your race, (you can even make up your own race), class, abilities, size, hair color, tattoos, age, voice, deity, etc. If you aren't into making characters, there are premade ones ready for you. The multiplayer mode is quite fun to play if you have any friends, but if not, the single player mode alone makes this game worth getting, with tons of sidequests to complete and places to visit. Now, the coup de grace of Neverwinter Nights: The ability to create and play your very own mods. If you don't know, mods are different games you can make or play through NWN. You can never run out of things to do with the 900 some mods available to you, but even if you do, you can just make one for yourself with the easy to use toolset that is included with the game. Another nice feature of NWN is the Dungeon Master client, which allows you to play games with your friends as if you were playing an actual Dungeons and Dragons game, where the DM would have complete control over all NPCs, monsters, etc. The only downside of NWN, in my opinion, is the ending, which left a little something to be desired. I won't say that it is completely bad yet, though, as there might be an expansion pack for it sometime in the future with a better ending. Neverwinter Nights deserves an A for ahh, what a good game. Do yourself a favor and go out and buy it... along with a better computer so you can actually play it.
This is not a game for the easily frustrated, but it is for those with little interest in video games. There are six characters each out of four players can choose from..... Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Princ
