Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition

Tue Aug 14, 2012 1:58 pm

Not a Raspi game (although there is an Android port coming, so my fingers, toes and everything else are crossed), so I'm posting in here. Is anyone else as excited about this as I am? BG is my all-time favourite game series, and I've been barely able to contain myself since I read about the new enhanced edition on Kotaku a few months ago.

The enhanced edition (out next month, all being well) converts all the graphics to Open GL, has new NPCs, has resolved hundreds of bugs, has some new artwork and music, two new areas and runs on many more platforms than the original did. Anyone else planning on buying it?

I'm more interested in the engine remake as free software, which has good BG1 and BG2 support and likely already works on the pi:

:o
I didn't remember the port to android of BG!!. Baldur's Gate 1 has been definitely the best game ever for me. If you compare at the time it was released, it was a big jump in graphics, story, gameplay. Almost everything reached a huge level with it.
My only concern about that is that, I don't know how comparable is the architecture of the x86 with the one that uses the pi.
I think that I had a 350mhz Pentium in that time, so should be all right.
I was thinking today if the pi could run Starcraft 1 with wine. ^^
It's an amazing device! I have just order mine today.... ;-D~~~~
Best for all the users!

I've got both BGs on GOG.com, but like with so many of the games I own have not had the chance to given them a go.
