    The AV Club, The Onion's more serious side has brought us a short but sweet <a href="http://www.avclub.com/content/games/neverwinter_nights_2_mask_of_the">review</a> of Mask of the Betrayer, the expansion pack for Neverwinter Nights 2 that was released sometime last year. The result is a concise write up, and a <b>B+</b> rating.
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote>The team at Obsidian includes key players behind what's arguably the greatest modern role-playing game, <i>Planescape: Torment</i>. While Mask Of The Betrayer doesn't measure up, it's rich with brainy dialogue, unconventional characters, and piles and piles of dead stuff.</blockquote>

    Invoking Power Word: Torment is something not often seen in this day and age.

    Can't argue there. It's a fair, clear review that's better than a lot of the rubbish out there. A lot of the dedicated gaming sites could take some cues from this. 'tis certainly not bad for a site that focuses mainly on film/music/TV.

    Are any AVClubbers following Nathan Rabin's "My Year of Flops"? It's bloody awesome. If you're not following it then have a look here.
