The RPG Scrollbars: Story Mode

About eighteen years or so after marking Baldur's Gate off my To-Save list, I'm knee-deep in the Infinity Engine once again with Siege of Dragonspear. I'm not going to talk too much about it here, not least because there's a full review coming soon. But there's one thing I do want to talk about - not one new to the Enhanced Editions, admittedly, and that's…

The RPG Scrollbars: The Lost Magic Of Magic

Given a choice, I almost always play as a mage. Swords? Pah. Divine magic? Save it for Sunday School. Give me control over the elements, the power to reshape the very building blocks of the universe according to my every whim, and if at all possible, a cool hat. It's an easy fantasy to indulge in almost any RPG out there. I just wish it…

Baldur’s Gate: Siege Of Dragonspear
On Mods, Publishers And The Future Of Baldur’s Gate

“We move from custodian to creator.” That was how Trent Oster described it. Beamdog’s co-founder who, twenty years ago, was also there when Bioware began, is once again returning to one of roleplaying’s most beloved and most influential series. This time, he won’t just be adding a new lick of paint here or a subtle embellishment there, as he has with the company’s Enhanced Editions…

The RPG Scrollbars: The Worst Parts Of RPGs, Vol I

As wonderful as RPGs are, some tropes and cliches and just general bloody annoyances really do spoil the fun. Some of them might only crop up occasionally, others just won't go away. Some, you might think, are just petty irritations. But no! All these incontrovertible sins must be destroyed at once! Here's a few of my least favourite offenders. What others would you add to…

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…

Beamdog Added 350,000 Words To Baldur’s Gate 2

It's been a while since we heard anything from Beamdog's 'Enhanced' version of Baldur's Gate 2, but their bossman Trent Oster just told ShackNews: "We're hard at work on BG2:EE and it is going well... Phil (our design lead) mentioned to me there is over 350,000 words of new content." These apparently constitute extra bits across the quests and story of Shadows of Amn and…
