    Anyone got it? Is it worth installing windows on my mbp just for this game?

    The first was fantastic and did eventually make its way to osx - you could just wait and see if they announce it

    They're no longer making Mac or Linux versions of NWN anymore. Windows only. :(

    I passed on this one. Apparently the game runs like...well, bad. VERY BAD. Also, the game isn't multi-threaded so in my case, I'd have 3 CPUs doing nothing...

    That sucks...The first one is one of my favorite games but I can't stand playing it without a universal patch so I was considering getting this one

    Its multi threaded from what I have read. I got it but it won't even start on a macbook (Claims no direct 3d support). Ill try it on a MBP this weekend but apparently is a huge power hog.

    No, the game is not multi-threaded. Only the scripting tools are.

    What an excellent example of a modern game. I heard that Oblivion does this games job, only better.
