Still have the entire Baldure's Gate & Icewind Dale collection loaded on my MiniMac bootcamp partition under XP. Those were some epic/classic RPGs.

I didn't like Baldure's Gate the first time (I really wanted to, even forced myself to play it), I would rather read the details of another Apple vs Samsung dispute.

I actually just bought BG2 off GOG a couple of weeks ago. I didn't realize how spoiled I have become by things such as two windows showing equipped vs dropped vs what you are buying in a shop for armor and weapons and such. Little arrows and indicator on maps to show quests and goals. I hope this enchanced edition has things such as this.

Why would you need or want that in a D&D game? That defeats the whole purpose of role playing. Having played BG1 and BG2 very recently, it is utterly trivial to memorize the items and stats of what you currently have.

Keep "console-itis" out of real PC games, imo.

I'd love to see a re-vamp of Dungeon Keeper, so long as it doesn't follow the business model these greedy companies have been applying to games lately. There was a game similar to it released, but it was poorly executed in terms of the look and feel, and it felt like it was made to appeal to the Sesame Street crowd, rather than adults.

At any rate, if you can still find a copy of DK or DKII, there were custom tweaks released that allowed for larger screens to be used effectively (although the game engine is still the same).

I really enjoyed BG but not so much with BG2 Found it a bit haphazard how you could easily pick up quests that wer far too advanced for your level and not know it until you were in the thick of it.

So The Witcher 1 is a console game? Same with Dragon Age: Origins?

I liked your post, but faceplamed at the last bit.

Smart move. No reason to split the profits when everyone already knows this game is coming + word of mouth is gonna help it sell with those who haven't heard of it yet

I don't agree, Steam is just very convenient. Having to install and patch crap seperatley and have separate passwords blows. If I had my choice Id like everything on steam. You get a new PC you just install from steam its great.

Agreed. Its either on steam or I don't buy it. I have games on there from 10 years ago that I still log in and play sometimes. I'd have forgotten all about them if they weren't on Steam. Steam is my little Cloud Collector Box.

Steam would be a lot better if they were spun off of Valve. There is too much conflict of interest since Valve is a publisher themselves and they have already started trying to tell other developers how to do things which can touch on antitrust violations.

The last thing that is needed is a monopoly. A lot of the things we despise today were once seen as great, but because they essentially became monopolies, it corrupted them.
