How does Chaos theory compare to the original and Pandora? Better, worse, in-between?
Better! The AI's much improved, and there are so many more moves and such that they're running out of buttons. Thought that that would bother me, but not so much. It's a little longer (from what I can tell) than the other two, as well. I loved the first two, and they just keep getting better and better, imho.

Looks like Chaos moves up on my "better get it" list. The AI was my main gripe with the first two games.
Just finished Batman Begins. Most definitely the best of DC's hero games for this generation of consoles. Very moody. My main gripe is that it's a little too linear, and there's no ability to wander and explore, but it's still a very very solid and fun game.
Currently I’m playing Gothic 2 + Night of The Raven (G2+NoTR).
I am using the player made conversion mod to covert the German version of NoTR to English. I can say without hesitation the mod works perfect and NoTR makes G2 a 100% better game. The NoTR Expansion doesn’t just add a little section to the game, what it does is it changes the entire story as a whole. If you have or are playing G2 without NoTR, then you haven’t or you’re not really playing G2. NoTR makes that much of a difference to the game.
Yeah, I've given up on NWN for the time being, I think.
NWN: Original single player campaign shines in the first and last chapter -- it's the in-between chapters that are dull. Mainly, the stuff involving the quarantine and the issues w/ Aribeth is the game's strength, in the story and everything. It's the whole uprising of an ancient race thing that drags on and gets quite boring in the middle 2 chapters.
Though, the expansions are good -- especially HOTU. Skip the original campaign and play the expansions.
I'm looking forward to NWN 2. Haven't played what i've got very much, but I've enjoyed it. I just don't play much on the computer because when I'm on the computer, I'm either working or here posting! ;D
I'm so excited because I just bought Yu-Gi-Oh Capsule Monster Colliseum for only $20 new! I really enjoyed this particualr storyline in the manga so I was curious about this game, but didn't want to spend $30 for it. I was assuming that a used copy would go down to $20 soon, but I found it at Best Buy new for $20. Which means I got the three rare cards that I can give to my nephew for his birthday - he'll love them.
Now if only they'd do a videogame of the roleplaying minature game that was in Yu-Gi-Oh - I would so get that!
