I’m trying to play all the good old PC RPG’s I missed growing up and I’ve got a little collection to dive into but I’m not sure what to play
Baldur’s Gate 1+2
Neverwinter Nights 2
Ignoring the already huge backlog of games I have… which should I tackle next?
BG2's Birth Story (Part III)
But I knew exactly what was happening. That’s when Melissa looked at me and very calmly asked, “Sarah, honey, do you feel like you need to push?” Scared, not knowing how I could ever do it on my own without the epidural (pushing lasted 3.5 hours with your brother!), I somehow managed to whimper out a little “Yes.”
There appeared to be a mini standoff right then between Melissa, who was encouraging me to give in to the urge to push, and my OBGYN, who wanted to get in position to check things out first. But Melissa just kept telling me to listen to my body, and it’s as if it heard her because right then, still curled in the fetal position and gripping that bedrail for dear life, my body started pushing whether I wanted to or not.
BG2's Birth Story (Part I)
Dear Baby Girl,
Four Mondays ago today, in the early morning on a chilly Christmas Eve in New England, you came roaring into my world and nothing has been the same ever since. Everything feels so perfect and natural now that you’re here, like you’ve always been a part of this family. I’ve hardly put you down in the roughly 672 hours that you’ve been alive. In fact, as I sit down at the computer to type for one of the first times since you were born, you are fast asleep on the couch next to me. I find myself contemplating whether I should wear you in the Moby wrap while I write your birth story because I can never get enough cuddle time with you. The only reason I’m not going to is because I fear all the happy tears currently streaming down my face would soak your little head.
Your journey into this world was both slow and fast, complicated yet incredibly simple. You gave us no warning and plenty all at the same time. Your brother’s birth was so significant to me because he was my first. In a very similar way, I find myself so intensely wanting to hold onto every single detail of my experience carrying and giving birth to you because you are likely my last. So here goes my feeble attempt to capture every detail building up to that perfect moment when I first laid eyes on you.
I finally finished BG2.
A week or so ago now. Finally finished it, after starting it a bunch of times. The final battle was a hell ride; everything was against me, even the computer and game itself.
First shot at the final battle with Irenicus, I died. That’s fine, I didn’t really know what to expect. I prepare better, and I face him again. I kill him this time, only the game doesn’t recognize it. I try again, the game crashes in the middle of the fight. I try again, I KILL HIM, AGAIN, the game disagrees, AGAIN. When I fought him after that, I almost got him, but he killed me at the last minute.
I finally, finally, defeat him, and finish the game. Except two of my characters died, and I lost a bunch of my equipment; for example, CROM FAEYR.
I finished the game however, and thankfully I can use that end game save for ToB instead. I don’t care what stat bonuses I got, i’m not giving up Crom Faeyr.
