I'd prefer a BG3. I tried laying BG on GOG and had to quit it. I'll probably get suckered into buying this version after it goes down in pirice and barely play it. *sigh*

Hm. I'm semi-interested, since it could give me the reason/excuse to revisit BG1 after all these years, but it really depends on what they mean by "a re-forged version of the Infinity Engine with a variety of modern improvements." :ermm:

 

...I'm not someone who thinks "modern" necessarily=improvement, so a big ? there.

 

**edit: reading the twitter feed, looks like some potential positive things

Amen to that :thumbsup:

 

If by 'modern' they mean QTE's, Minigames, Checkpoint saves, Crappy UI's build for people operating the game with two thumbs, then good riddance.

 

If it means compatibility with 64 bit, multicore processors, configurable keys, decent choice of screen resolutions etc. then I'll happily cheer them on :)

Nice thread title. I wish it was Baldur's Gate III but I'm curious to see what all they do with this enahnced edition. If I feel they've done enough to improve on the original, I'll buy it. Haven't played BG2 in about 5 years so it would be fun going back and playing through it again.

could we maybe merge this thread with that other one, but edit the title to represent the content of the thread, pwease? :unsure:

Let's Play The Temple of Elemental Evil (Complete)
Let's Play Neverwinter Nights and Hordes of the Underdark

Let's Play Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

I'm all for a BG3 if Obsidian does it. They sure need some contracts at this moment.

Otherwise, I've some doubts. Bioware's writing went down recently and I never was a fan of the previous games. BG1 felt dull and because of that, I never found the courage to launch BG2.

 

Qui vivra verra.

Mod compatibility is likely low. So will they make enough improvements to make up for the loss of litrrally hundreds of mods?

 

 

Meh. Wait and see the specifics, but not excited. G make something original.

Maybe this is a probe to see how much interest exists for a BG3?

 

That would be an expensive and risky way to probe.. it's easier to just ask customers online and see how much buss it creates.

Fortune favors the bald.

Meh, you'll have the old version and all the mods, the new version won't take that away. I've only every used fixpacks, widescreen and unfinished business, anyway, I know I'm not alone in this.

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Are you implying that this entire thing is expensive and risky on Bioware's part, then?

 

And if you don't think it is, then your post is illogical.

So these enhanced editions are going the be tied to this Beamdog program I have never even heard about? More digital distribution softs, yeah, that's just what I want on my PC. Been eyeballing at origin already with evil intentions.

 

Gotten used to steam, no more thank you very much.

 

Edit: And why I replied to BG3 titled thread, I do not know.
