In preparation for our release of Rise of Relthane, we decided it was time to re-lease one of our more popular older battle scenarios, the Battle for...
As a player, you are able to choose what skills and abilities you will develop as you voyage though the complex and dangerous fantasy world of Forgotten Realms. Be a deadly and dangerous Rogue moving through the shadows using stealth and secrecy, be a scholarly Wizard and wield powerful magic against your enemies, be a hulking Barbarian whose lust for battle is matched only by his terrible rage, be an armor-clad Paladin who protects the innocent and vanquishes his foes, be a crusading Cleric who heals the sick and defends the helpless… be all this and more.
Neverwinter Nights allows you to create your own worlds. This revolutionary game will come with all the tools needed to construct your own unique lands of adventure. The Neverwinter Nights Aurora Toolset allows even novice users to construct everything from a quiet, misty forest or a dripping cavern of foul evil, to a king’s court. All the monsters, items, set pieces and settings are there for world builders to use. But do not stop there; construct traps, encounters, custom monsters and magic items to make your adventure unique.
But the Neverwinter experience is not just for one person- adventure with all your friends. Neverwinter Nights can be played online with up to 64 friends, all sharing in the adventure. You can organize and run your own adventures through the role of the Dungeon Master and control all the monsters, creatures and characters your friends meet as they journey on their quest. A powerful piece of software that is included with Neverwinter Nights, the DM Client, allows nearly unlimited control for running your own adventures for your friends.
Neverwinter Nights…endless adventure!
EA have not found any alternative to the dying Gamespy service and a large number of games thus lose multiplayer support.
Gamespy has long been a household name for gamers, as numerous games, both PC and console, had multiplayer modes built on servers.
2014 marks the notoriously late for Gamespy, which also means that hundreds of games are in danger of losing support for gaming on-line.
Many developers and publishers, including Activision, Rockstar and SEGA has announced that they are working to find alternative solutions for games that use the Gamespy servers. Similar messages came from EA, which over the years have used Gamespy for many titles, but now the company has announced that they choose to flappers support in their Gamespy games.
Technical challenges and not least the fact that most of the games that use Gamespy start pulling on the oars, located behind EA's decision to allow multiplayer support across 50 titles die out. A variety of titles, such as F1 2002, EA Sports 06 to PC or Fifa Soccer 08-10 for the Nintendo DS, has hardly many active players, but the list also contains relatively popular games like Battlefield 2, Crysis 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2.
PC games constitute a large part of the list, but Nintendo consoles are also strongly represented. Nintendo has not gone back on its decision to allow the many DS and Wii titles that use Gamespy lose multiplayer functionality, and EA games are no exception.
As a way to work around this closure, you can use programs like hamatchi to create virtual lans gloabaly, however these free programs are designed with gamers in mind.
GameRanger is a free download for Mac and PC that lets you play over 600 games and demos online with friends and opponents worldwide.
GameRanger offers features like profiles, friends lists, instant messaging, in-game voice communication, and competitive ladders/rankings/ratings.
Tunngle is a revolutionary p2p VPN tool that delivers the best online entertainment experience.

It doesn't matter if your game is old, epic or brand new. You don't have to worry if your friends are miles away! Tunngle makes use of the games LAN mode to connect the players together.
Overall it's a shame to see so many great titles loose official multilayer support, but with strong modding communities behind these titles, their legacy will reign on for years to come.

NWN is a wonderful game. What surprised me was the amount of options you get to chose for your character when making him or her. There are 7 races to chose from and you can create your own sub race. There are many classes to chose from and then their is the alignment you chose for your character. The campaign is very long and the story is good - some of the areas are memorable - like Charwood village. I picked up the Deluxe edition for £1 which contains the two expansions - along with the toolset…
