Congratulations, Panu!

The International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) have posted the list of winners of the 2012 IFMCA Awards, “for excellence in musical scoring in 2012”.

Neverwinter Nights 2 Comes to GOG.com!

We are pleased to see, today, that GOG has released Neverwinter Nights 2 along with all of its expansion packs. Previously, NWN2 had been available only through Steam and GamersGate — and unfortunately it was pulled from the libraries of both services some time ago, leaving online retailers like Amazon and eBay (where its prices can fluctuate) as the sole sources for copies of the game.

But those dark times are behind us now. And as an added bonus, the GOG version of the game is (as is the norm for them) DRM-free, making it the preferable (indeed, the superior) option for obtaining a copy of the game. When Ultima Return releases, you can be sure we’ll be encouraging you to grab a copy of NWN2 from GOG…so why wait?
