    Some, yeah. Particularly in BG1. I did love how Viconia DeVir's character evolved and was presented in the games.

    Didn't bother to check, my bad.

    As for the engine in BG - I hated the mechanics, the small inventory etc. Backgrounds were perfectly fine for me, I wish for a game that would catch a similar feel.

    As much as it excited me to think about being able to play this on my iPad, it also makes me shiver to think of not being able to use mods. Once you tutu it up and string all the games and expansions together from start to finish, all using the same rule sets and fixes... it really is an experience hard to beat.

    doesn't load for me either. but if it's only an iOS port I don't give a rats ass anyway. way to make a big deal about something pretty damn lame.

    Trent Oster says on his Twitter "We're happy to announce the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition."

    And this "Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition is going to have new content for the game you love, made by some of the original team members"

    So, we have Wasteland 2 and now Baldur's Gate is back. How long till Obsidian announces a new Planescape game? It's like good old times once again :D

    Anything Lexx, just so it can sell more copies and then we will get a new one!

    They could turn Edwin's personal quest in BG2 into a romance! With the sex changes and all...

    Gah, no thanks, one "spiritual sequel" to BG was enough. I don't trust Bioware to make a good game these days.

    Things that are too good to be true, but true all the same, create an imbalance in the order of the cosmos. Every time something awesome like this happens, that meteor heading toward earth shifts one degree closer to hitting us. This is the nature of the universe. Gob help us.

    ^ That just means FO4 is going to come soon, so all's right with the world XD

    Curious teaser but we'll see how it goes. Among various things, seems weird that they'd keep the Infinity Engine. So maybe it's not a true overhaul, just some polishing up akin to the various TuTu mods. I suppose we'll see when more info becomes available.

    something closer to Temple of Elemental Evil (for the graphics) 2d+3d i think would suit the old assets well .. you have the nice backgrounds .. just the spells and chars sucked imo

    Am I the only one who's disappointed?... I'd rather see a new BG than just recycling.

    Maybe that will happen too, if the interest in the EE is high enough?

    According to a tweet by Trent Oster, regarding fans who were disappointed because they expected the announcement of BG3:


    ""We want #BG3 (Baldur’s Gate 3) as well. #bgee (Baldur’s Gate: Ehanced Edition) is a part of the master plan.""


    So apparently they have a "master plan" that includes releasing a BG3 into the future.
