Trio of NWN2 videos at IGN

IGN got Feargus Urquhart to take them through a set of video preview of the upcoming NWN2.
From there, Feargus continues by explaining classes, alignments (and how they affect gameplay), and, interestingly, background stories. Something that's always bugged me is the relative lack of information in my RPG characters' history. Games like Oblivion are awesome but the history of my character that wound him up in jail is pretty much non-existent. This feature in NWN2 allows players not only to have a history, but have it affect the way the NPCs react at early stages.There's an interesting notion. I wonder how that works. Is the character background a D&D mad lib? "I grew up in _______ apprenticed to a ________ but my real interests were in _________!" And to what extent will NPCs "react"? Will one or two of them occasionally go "Oh! It's [PC]! Have you been doing any [POTTERY] lately, [PC]?"
Thanks to Hbyperboy for the heads up.
