Hello, so the legend is being reborn in 42days. Excited anyone?
Since there's already a 300-post thread on this, yeah, I'd say people are excited.
Day 1 purchase for me. Cross platform multiplayer sounds awesome!
Never played through the original series and was planning to pick up both 1 & 2 from GoG.com but as this is just around the corner with professional optimization for modern hardware i'll be picking up this one for sure.
Glad to see there are release date/months put up. I'll be buying on my iPad asap.
Never played this stuff Multiplayer.. how would it work? combat is puase,asign actions and watch, rince repeat, isnt it? how would that work multiplayer?
I am a PC/windows guy, but the ability to play on either the iPad or my wife's mac is too good to pass up. Traveling quite a bit, this will be the ultimate time-killer while on the road.
I cant find my CDs for the orginal game, so....
might just buy this, simply because I miss a good old RPG like this that much.
Why the fudge cant more game developers make games like these?
we need a brand new Icewind dale, and Baldurs Gate..... planescape torment, ect.
We got Wasteland 2 coming it its a start.
How would the controls work on a tablet? Do you plug in an external controller of some sort? Seems like it would be really hard to play with a touch only interface. I am quite interested in this franchise, but dont know if I have the time or patience to get into it. I would only do it on the PC though.
It would be much harder to play with a controller than with touchscreen. Pause and play RPGs are perfect for touchscreen devices.
The original only required a mouse and keyboard to play and it could also be played in a turn base/pause and issue commands mode.
So basically the control scheme isn't something that touch screen tablets would have difficulty with at all. If anything it the game would be more touch based to take advantage of the touch screen abilities of a tablet and revamped UI.
I can see how touch would work for pause/issue commands/cast spells/ etc. How would you control movement of your party though, some-kind of virtual movement arrows? My only experience with touch controls is on a 7" tablet. Maybe it would work better on a larger screen. Just doesnt seem that it would have near the precision of a keyboard and mouse.
WOW I always wanted to try BG I think it is my type of game almost picked up a box copy when I was on Linux full time for a while yes BG is native to Linux platform FTW. I guess I will defiantly pick up this enhanced copy for sure now. Anyone whom had played this game what do you think of it let me know in your opinion what you honestly think with details.
The same way you do in game with a PC and mouse. Click/Tap on a character you can see and then click/tap where you want them to go the map/screen.
Each player controls an individual character, or multiple characters. You don't really need to pause, but I think if I remember correctly, anyone can pause the game.
The other way is single player, played through the multiplayer interface, which allows you to custom build all your characters, instead of having the predefined characters join you as you adventure. This is the way I normally play.
This is coming on Steam?
My understanding is no. it is on Beamdog? And is exclusive (I am pretty sure on this). Which means yet another Game management system required on your computer. Ugh...
What is up with that picture? It looks like someone photoshopped something (of a different color pallet) on top of the environment scenery? Does anyone else notice this? The colors do not match???
I grabbed the image off the net for the purposes of illustrating the default UI. Apparently its a screenshot of the expansion called "Shadow of Amn".
Not expansion. It is from Baldur's Gate 2. Which is a full and complete game unto itself.
I thought Beamdog is the name of the company. Where does it say they have their own Steam/Origin like service?
Check out the web site. it may not be a "Steam like" PC Resident application like I thought. Maybe more like GoG. But I did read that BG - Enhanced will be exclusive to be downloaded from the beamdog website and NOT on Steam or origin. At least not initially. And since Beamdog owns Overhaul games, that kind of makes sense.
I read an interview last night where the folks at Beam Dog/Overhaul games were approached to actually make BG:EE for the PSN. And that they felt that they could do it, but... That it would take more money than Sony was willing to come up with.
I am so very glad that they didn't consolize the game. And that it will not now show up on either the PS3 or the 360. I am still skeptical as to the degree to which it will be "Enhanced", but at least it won't be borked due to Consolization.
So is the iPad version a "full version" compared to the PC one?
I can see why some people are looking forward to this, the ability to take a game like this with you on your tablet or phone is great. For me, I already played it and there doesn't seem to be enough major changes to make me want to spend time in this game again.
