What can i expect from this game?
Friend of mine recommended this to me since he knows i like RPG's.

but so far all i can maange out of his spergy mouth is "its got some funnny and goofy stuff" "its a decent RPG" and a few les coherent ramblings.

so pray tell, what kind of goofy stuff, and just what kind of an "RPG" would this be conisedered, like, as far as the level of missions/progression/direction and things? Like Diablo, or more world-building, less dungeon A -> Dungeon B -> cutscene 3 -> Dungeon A again?

This is game is nothing like Diablo. If you ever played D&D on a tabletop and wished it could be magically transformed from paper to a video game then you get Baldurs Gate series and Icewind Dale series. It's a great RPG if not a bit difficult if you're use to your typical hack and slash that the modern era has been giving us - you need to really think about how to use your character and party to get you through.

One goofy thing off the top of my head would be Minsc and Boo. An NPC ranger and his pet hamster will join you and your party should you wish it. (:

Depending on how old you are you might not have seen a game like this before. There are several Baldur's Gate-esque games available but there really haven't been any new ones for several years (a decade?). Most newer RPGs have gone the route of The Elder Scrolls; more solo and less party management involved.

It is possible to solo Baldur's Gate but unless you're re-playing it for a challenge there is not much reason to do so. In fact if you try to solo it you're missing out on a lot of the game's content; NPC interaction (some with hilarious comments), side quests, and the tactical element of learning how to use/build your party effectively.

If you're on the fence about paying for this game I highly recommend you search youtube for a Let's Play Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. Just don't watch too much otherwise there will be a lot of spoilers.

Side note: This game has a ton of replay value. There are a plethora of races and classes but also RPing your alignment can be quite fun too. If you just beat it as a "Good Guy" play it again as an evil villain and get a party of like-minded scoundrels with you. I've played the game uncountable times. If you enjoyed the first playthrough you'll want to play it again at least 3 more times all the way through.
yeah, i enjoy the party management kind of games personally, i really liked Skyrim but was always thinking "Man, all i get is one Mook, and i cant even effect their progression/etc".

will check out those videos though if i get some time.

Also, whats the multiplayer like? like is it coop or is it like a "lets kill eachother" kind of thing?

Dragon Age anyone? How can you seriously forget about that game?

Anyway, the multiplayer is co-operative. You can play a campaign up to 6 players.

You have to enjoy slower pace, a deep story, and complex combat in order to really appreciate this game. Otherwise you're better off with action games like Diablo
