The HERESY Of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

Quickly, someone carry me to an online petition site right away. I'd go there myself but I'm just so weak with shock. Do you know what's happened? No, of course you don't, you couldn't even imagine such horror. Sit down. Hold onto something, like a pint of brandy. By God, this is even worse than when 5ive split up.

The pure, shining spirit of Baldur's Gate is going to be tampered with by Beamdog for its Enhanced Edition. Steady, steady, it's ok, I've got you.

In cold, cruel disregard for all that is right and good, they're going to raise the level cap so that they can include a super-tough new zone. Yes, you heard me right! They're actually going to carefully expand upon the game's underlying roleplaying system and add brand new content.

They might even include new voice work from the original cast, even Minsc. Plus they're replacing the old UI with a scratch-built new one that supports higher resolutions. Ew. To add insult to injury, they're even going to improve mod support so other people can pervert BG's innocent heart all the more.

It's just sick. Sick! How dare they? Next you'll be telling me they're releasing it on Mac too.

...

What? No!
