I nearly choked on my coffee today, twice \:\) First there was the 9/10 at Neoseeker for which I was very grateful, especially since that review happened because we provided a review copy based on a hint from someone here in the forum, and then next , reading MCV, a trade industry magazine covering mostly the UK - I spotted the following article:

More Stock en-route as Divinity II sells out

Mastertronic has promised to provide more stock for Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga after the first batch sold out. The launch allocation has run out ahead of it's release today. But the game's distributor has assured retailers that there will be sufficient supply to meet demand. "Our experience with the original Divinity II meant that we were expecting good things for the launch of this expanded edition, but the demand has really taken us by surprise" said Mastertronic's group sales director James Cato.

"We've had to pull out all the stops to get more stock and to make sure that we can continue to fulfill orders in time"

"A lot of hard work from a lot of people means that we are still going to hit our release dates and there will be minimum disruption to orders already placed"

"Such high levels of interest point to Divinity II being one of the strongest RPG titles on the market this Christmas"

I don't know what to make of it, but I think this is the first time we have something like this happen to us in the UK \:\)

WOOHOO Congrats Lar & everyone at Larian I hope it keeps going well 4 u all, after giving us such a fantastic game you diserve the praise.

(although I'm proberbly starting to sound like a broken record lol)

DKS is an awsome game & now that people are starting to open their eyes & admit that Divinity is a very well made game with an awsome story maybe D3(when & if it gets released) will get the attention it deserves from the begining.

I know this probably doesnt "touch you" in any way nor does it have much relevance, but i can safely say that on my 40 years old of age, i rarely embraced a " 3rd party project" like i embraced the larian studios' projects like Divine Divinity and Dragon Knight Saga.

What do i mean with this ? it means near hourly contacts with portuguese and UK gamming forums, with constant feedback and thread monitoring on certain forums and even some e-mails sent to retail stores trying to get your project forwarded to the right channels.

I know this is a drop in the ocean for you guys, and quite honestly i cant explain why i "lose" so much time doing this, but i honestly believe that you should be rewarded for a job well done.

I'm on my 3rd playthrough of dragon knight saga, i already ended Divine divinity six times and D2 (original) 2 times, and i realy think you guys are special in a way that i can realy feel your dedication around every corner of the games i've played.


This is my humble and simple contribution to your sucess so that later on, i can have more hours with your future game, you guys deserve it.

Wow, that's not just a 'humble and simple' contribution KnightPT. Really, that's amazing and you can't imagine how fantastic it is for us to see this kind of effort from the community just because they like the game so much. Very rewarding, this - and very much appreciated!

I second that. It's been a very tough year for us and it's very rewarding to read posts like these. Thank you very much for your efforts - we'll try not to disappoint in our next projects which really benifit from what people like you are doing, in more ways than you can imagine.

The article, though there is not much more to it.

About the only thing of note is it specifies the XBox 360 version as having sold out.

I'm so happy that Larian have such a wonderfull fanbase to support them here on the forums, with them being the dedicated company thay are us fans need to give them all the support we can to keep them in the buisness. The game industry needs more companys like you guys & though this post may sound a bit pointless & pathetic I'm very proud of all the work you guys & girls at Larian have been doing. Like some of the members here I'm also a fan that not just falls in love with a game I fall in love with the company that made it.

Every game has it's own personality based on the personality of the people involved in making it, I can always tell when I play a game what the company that made it is like. When I play some games all I feel from the harts behind it is this was made to make money, When I play Divinity I can feel the hart that went into the game & it makes me feel happy to know that at least there are still some companys out there that still put everything thay are into making there games. I can truley tell that you love doing what you do & I'd like to thank you all for doing it just 1 thing though please don't ever change \:\)

Ok I'm going to shut up now b4 I bore everyone to death & get all emotional lol

Yaayy ! I don't say much in the forum, but be sure, I really appreciate what the Divinity community has been and is doing for us. Yes we poured a lot of our souls into the Divinity universe over the years, and I feel rejoiced everytime it makes someone in the world happy.
Thank you =)

Well I haven't been active on the forum in a long time (work, life, 42 ...) But that doesn't mean I've forgotten about larian. I've been recommending it to friends since before Ego draconis was out. And although we are now in the long stretch between games. You can count on it that I will pop in every now and then to see the new news. Congrats on a job well done an I do hope that the divinity universe will prosper and find new ways to entrain us.

ps: I lost a 1.5 weeks of my life playing TDKS. I don't want it back but the agonizing work hours with bloodshot eyes didn't make a good impressing @ work. plz install a "go to sleep timer".
18:00 : Let's play for 15 min. *watches clock* 02:45 *woops*
