Default Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition Screenshot

September 10th, 2012, 13:50
Overhaul kicked up a Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition screenshot that slipped past us last week, showing the PC interface. The intro mentions they received approval to release a further 10 screens - hopefully they'll be more convincing than this first one.
More information.

Well, "underwhelming" and "not my taste" is my first reaction. Hopefully the rest of the screenshots will be better. I really don't like the blue texture and the shiny gold.

For whatever reason I'm not thrilled by the "remake".
Never played that game for colors and looks, but for the story and subquests. I still remember things like Koveras ring and how in fact BG had something I couldn't find in better looking games like NWN - BG had a soul.
All I see here is an attempt to milk smartphone owners. Since I don't have one, I probably won't buy the remake at all.

Funny to see PC elitists whining because iPAD owners will get a quality RPG. "Milking" is one way of seeing it i guess, personally i can't wait to get a portable version of BG. Don't care the least for the EE PC version though.

I feel the exact opposite.. I dislike how pale and empty Inquistor looks compared to BG, there's like no clutter at all. I'm guessing it was something that was planned to be added in at last (usually putting the details into the game world i something you do last) but it didnt make it.

Looks great to me. I don't see how this will tarnish the memories of the original as so many seem to be worried about.

On a side note,why is it when some one prefers pc over other platforms they are a pc elitist but someone that prefers consoles is not a console elitist, iPad preference doesn't make you an iPad elitist. If you like ford over Chevy are you a ford elitist or how about pizza over just about anything else? Am I a pizza elitist? Oh well, seems to be the most misused and over used term on gaming forums.

BTW, I will buy the pc version and the Iran version for my iPad. What does that make me? A pc elitist? iPad elitist? An ipc elitist or just a console hater? Just curious?

Can't say I'm blown away by the UI they showed, but I'm not sure what I expected. I will say that the dialogue box not being able to show two full lines of text is rather annoying. I hope they fix that.

You're going to pay $40 for two "enhanced" versions of a 15 year old game? It makes you ripped off.

To me, too.

I don't see much of a difference, actually.

The "blue" looks rather like blue slate instead of the rather brownish (looking) slate they used in the original version.

Nope. The best versions were on the C64 and the BBC, although some people prefer the Archimedes version.
When will we have Elite 4…
