So Baldur's Gate Enchanced edition came out about 2 days ago... and yet no one on sys wars has mentioned it. Is anyone here playing the start of the greatest rpg epic of all time?
This will be my 3rd playthrough since the game was released 14 years ago. I still remember getting the game box and opening up to see a large fold out sleeve with 5 cds in it and a epic map. Those were the days when pc games had manuals too, and large boxes.
It was the game that made me get back into pc gaming and skip the consoles during last gen. I remember owning great jrpgs on ps1 and reading the mags seeing Baldurs Gate in the ads for the playstation....it never came... (there is videos on youtube with the ps1 version btw..) So I got a crappy pentium 2 knockoff from my cousin and played the hell out of BG1... then got me a voodoo card and moved into full scale pc gaming. It was an epic time of great rpgs all started from BG1 (as rpgs had died for a few years since the 386 era.)
The remaster is great so far! Its all 3d accelerated so the fog of war is smooth, and its in widescreen. I recommend anyone who hasn't played it, to play it! And if you haven't played it for a while go through it again. It makes rpgs from now feel like crap.
Anyway... PC >>> ALL ... there ..now its system wars worthy.
Here is the link for the game:http://www.baldursgate.com/
