It seems like this game will get here only in 2009. At least that's what the local supplier is saying.:(

I really enjoyed motb, it was way better than the nwn2 oc.

Re: Official Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir Expansion Thread
 
My copy should be here in a couple of days. If it is better than MotB, I'll be extremely impressed. MotB was quiet possibly the best D&D RPG since BG2.

I still need to complete the original game... I was turned off by a lot of little things the first time I played, but I'm sure patches and such have made it a much better experience.

Re: Official Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir Expansion Thread
 
I need to complete MOTB... actually I need to start it...
