Neverwinter Nights 2 Finally Coming to Mac

It seemed like “never” was when Neverwinter Nights 2 for Mac would be released. First it was November, then December, then January, then March. But now it looks like we’ll get it a bit earlier than March as Feb. 26 has been set as the date.
Neverwinter Nights is the successor to the Baldur’s Gate series of games and both are directly related to real Dungeons and Dragons, which means a little nostalgia thrown in with good RPG play. You can also create your own adventures, which for some RPG-obsessed people like me, is even more fun than playing.
I loved the Baldur’s Gate games on Mac years ago. I couldn’t wait for the original Neverwinter Nights to come out on Mac, so I bought it for Windows. I regretted that decision, since my main computers are Macs it meant that it was too much of a bother to switch to a PC to play. So I didn’t get my money’s worth out of it. Now with Boot Camp and Parallels, it was tempting to get the Windows version of Neverwinter Nights 2 many months ago, but I’ve been holding out as to not make the same mistake.
