Re: Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II Enhanced Editions Announced

The BGII upgrade of BGI is already pretty sweet. I just started another run through last month as an evil mage with it, which is the hardest class to grind up in 2nd ed. (my first epic run was a pure selfish-neutral thief when the games were new).

Forgot how friggin cool these games were. NWN is ass, from graphics to gameplay to story, BG has it all over NWN. I quit playing NWN so many times before finally finishing it and even tried the expansions hoping for better, but its all ass. It never needed to be 3D. All of that dev time should have been spent not writing a shitty campaign.

Hopefully, I'll have finished my mage's journey through Throne of Bhaal and be rested and ready for another run by the time these come out.

A couple new details regarding the iPad version of BG1 are now available: the game will not cost more than $10, and multiplayer will be included. Kotaku will also have some more information tomorrow morning, according to that article.

Also, the possibility of an Android version is under consideration.

Word is that the PC version is exclusive to their own Digital Distribution platform called Beamdog and it wont appear on any other platform. A platform that I had never heard of until the announcement of BGEE, despite the fact that my main hobby is gaming and I mostly play PC games. It's almost like they want the PC version to fail by not putting it on Steam, or any other platform that anyone has heard of.

This is truely great news. BG is one of my all time favourite games series.

My main hope for this is that they improve the interface. In the old game it's really clunky. For example you can only have shortcuts to 3-4 spells/weapons at any one time. Which is really cumbersome if you have dozens to chose from and really slows down battles.

With regard to the graphics I doubt they will do anymore than allow for more modern resolutions. Which brings a certain problem because one will be so zoomed out from the action that it might make the experience a bit impersonal.


Edit: Just read they are planning on overhauling the interface for all platforms. So there is hope controls will be improved!

Plus there is talk about a new recruitable NPC and a new questline to get him/her.

The PC version is now available for $20. The iOS version is expected to be available next week; it was delayed due to a game-breaking bug. Android release is anticipated at some point prior to Christmas, while the Mac OSX port is pending Apple approval.

Kotaku has a nice "everything you should know" article aimed towards those who, like me, have never played BG.

Ugh, Baldurs gate 2 gives me bad memories. Got about half way when it started hard crashing my computer. Heard I needed to re-install, get new textures from someone elses disk, and restart. Got to about the same point again... hard crash. You win again Windows 98.

What part of the enhancements do you like most? I really enjoyed BGII, but still trying to decide if I need the enhanced versions. Thanks.

So basically they only changed the graphics slightly? I've played all the old Bioware games except Icewind Dale, but I really never had any problem with the way it looked and if that's all that was changed here I don't see any reason to play it again. Although I probably would play an "enhanced" Planescape Torment again.

No, Overhaul Games did quite a bit more than that. Look at the official site.


I haven't purchased the EE yet because I can't decide if I want the Windows or iOS version.
