Lost source code might rule out Icewind Dale II: Enhanced Edition

Beamdog have been on a retro remastering rampage in recent years, fancying up and re-releasing Icewind Dale, the two Baldur's Gate games, and Planescape: Torment. Their spree of updating games built on the Infinity Engine has reached one tricky obstacle, though: they can't find the source code for Icewind Dale II.

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…

Baldur’s Gate III: “We’re Totally Thinking Kickstarter”

Oh boy. Here's my theory - throughout the year there will be numerous Kickstarter projects that people become excited about, pledge money to and then look forward to. Fatigue will set in due to the number of awesome concepts being put forward by wonderful people, but it isn't fatigue alone that will end this fascination. My belief is that one day the perfect Platonic ideal…
