Baldur’s Gate – Siege of Dragonspear Out Now

More than a decade after the Baldur's Gate [official site] saga appeared to come to an end, there's a brand new expansion available to buy right now. I know how this might look - it's classic April Idiots' fodder, telling you about a new chapter in a much-loved series and then revealing that all of your favourite characters have been transformed into unicorns or somesuch.…

Baldur’s Gate: EE Expanding With Siege Of Dragonspear

We live in interesting times. The Baldur's Gate RPGs are amongst the most well-loved, well-regarded and influential the PC has ever seen, but surely they're now a relic of an ever more distant past? Along with most things that we consider legendary, they have begun to fade into the past and, like weathered statuary, are slowly losing their definition. We remember them fondly, but indistinctly,…

New Baldur’s Gate Set Between 1 And 2 Coming This Year

Do you remember when Beamdog, the folks who've been revamping Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale, announced they were making a new Baldur's Gate game? Do you remember - one set between the first two games and using the same dear old Infinity Engine? No, me neither. But, acting as if we all totally knew all along, they've now announced that it'll launch this year. Beyond…

Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition Out In November

It looks like Baldur's Gate II's spam filter has let through an enhancement e-mail. You know the kind I'm talking about. In search of an ego boost, though I know plenty of people who like the venerable organ just the way it is, it has succumbed to the cheap thrills offered within, and ordered a course of treatment: "Why settle for less when we can…

Beamdog Hoping For Baldur’s Gate III Despite ‘Legal Hell’

For a while there, it looked as though Baldur's Gate had finally emerged from the dank dungeons of obscurity, prepared to crush modern glitz-and-glamour RPGs under a mountain of depth and 20-sided dice. But then things happened. Law things. Now Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is stuck in neutral - with Beamdog unable to continue fixing some rather worrisome launch issues - and Baldur's Gate II:…

Yikes: Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Pulled, BGII On Hold

I am worried. I still don't know what a Beamdog is, and now my chances of finding out are looking rather slim. The Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition developer has hit a¬†slightly, um,¬†fatal rocky patch, with messy "contractual issues" leaving the update effort's future in doubt. For now, the first Enhanced Edition has been yanked from all relevant e-tailers, and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition is…

Not Forgotten: Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Trailered

Beamdog's remake of the classic RPG arrives on November 28th. With that in mind they've released a trailer to show off some of the improvements. These include: support for widescreen formats and resolutions that were imaginary at the time the game was released, new quests, new characters, and voices for those extras. They've apparently overhauled the original cinematics, and worked up the UI - something…

Oh, Baldurdash – Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Delayed

I suppose it seems only proper that - in making its pleasantly prim and made-over debut on the modern stage - Baldur's Gate will now suffer the most modern fate of them all: a last-second holiday season delay. On the upside, however, it's for a good cause. In short, Overhaul Games has found itself buried under a mountain fan requests, so it's decided to dig…

Swords With Friends: Baldur’s Gate’s Cross-Plat Co-op

It's not that difficult to "enhance" something. Recently, I "enhanced" my cereal experience by pouring milk into it. In the world of PC gaming, however, "enhanced" is a holy and sacred word. The Witcher 1 and 2's Enhanced Editions, for instance, were the equivalent of sending my cereal bowl sailing into a nearby forest, flying in an Iron Chef, and telling him to make whatever…
