Coming from a software dev background, its not the most fun to re-write code from one language to another. Essentially that's what BD is going with the BG franchise. They have done a great job, but I see this as a way for them to monetize their expertise in all the code work they did for BG1 and 2. At this point, I doubt anyone else on the planet knows the ins and outs of the code better than them. Why not use that experience to try and take a crack at something new and original?Eh, no thanks. I'd rather they fix up the remakes they already released, and then move onto Icewind Dale II or Planescape Torment. Still haven't bought any of them though, waiting for them to be all brought up to the same, feature complete standard, though perhaps that will never happen.
Re-creating awesome games from the past is great, but so is working-on and playing new titles and stories.
