Who needs BF2142 when you've got all these quality games coming out over the next few weeks?

I have seriously been looking forward to NWN2 for a long time, and I can't wait to get my hands on it!

hope atari let obsidian finish the game this time, it better not be another "kotorII" case, where lucas rushed the game, and entire ending got f-ed up

This is because NWN used OpenGL

NWN2 uses DX9. Impossible to create a Linux client

I thought NWN2 was using a severely upgraded/modified Aurora engine?

Yup

The engine they are using is Electron engine which is nothing more then the Aurora Engine modified. It uses SM2.0 (SM3.0 is compatible but not real benefit from it). It is Direct3D but it is not impossible to emulate nor is it impossible to make a Linux Client.

NWN1 supported both OpenGL and Direct3D.
