Although I'm disgusted with this remake/reboot game edition, it's obviously not all black.
These guys are showing Bethesda what they should do with Skyrim. Patch, patch and patch. And no DLC prior to patch.
Respect!

Now I'm really thinking to support them and buy the smartphones game after all.

Can't complain about their level of support so far with lots of quick patches.
Probably wouldn't have bought it myself but got it as a Christmas gift so by the time I'm ready to give it a go it should be nicely patched.

Will grab this when there's a steam sale. Already have the originals so $19.99 isn't worth it for me but will end up getting it for the new content when its on sale.

I LOVE being able to play BG on the go. Tomorrow I am taking a 9 hour bus ride to Italy for a ski trip and I just got to Peldvale. I have my entertainment all lined up for the trip.

There's patching and patching. You can let a bug happen and forbid it from expressing. Or you can eradicate it.

My guess is that Bethesda, that have to plan for the future and such, accumulate how to do knowledge, goes for the second.

Due to the steam release I was about to buy it but I do not believe 18,99€ is a reasonable price considering it's age and that I already own the original.

I'm with you there. Only then, and IF it's reasonably priced, I might consider giving it a shot.

It would be somewhat odd for a store to sell both the regular and enhanced edition.

Hoping for a spring sale.

Just have to finish Skyrim first (yeah, right…) and promised myself to finally play Planescape before I touch anything else, but then..

Its still obnoxious that you have to pay more in euro than in dollars.

I'm glad they are patching it, but still baffled at the number of bugs that was in it at release, and still exist. My journal is a mess with quests still showing that I've completed.

The original game also had a jumble of a journal, some (all?) bugs there might be related to BG1. It improved vastly in BG2.

I hope they don't mess too much with the journal in BG2, as it actually works.

Probably the result of the extensive code re-write they supposedly performed. Hopefully that means BG2 EE won't be as buggy.

I have had the weird journal entries thing, but I don't remember how it really was in the original. I'm now approaching the end of the game (though I still need to visit Durlag's Tower). There have been a couple of minor quirks, but overall I've found it to be a little cleaner than I vaguely remember the original to be. And I've got the new Wild Mage in my party, which makes for some interesting encounters (including some game-ending disasters). As a class, more trouble than it's worth, but it makes for a pretty different playthrough.

IIRC in the original, your journal was just that, a journal. As you discovered things, they text popped in. I don't believe that it cleared quests when you finished them, but I could be wrong.

Overall, I'm pleased, just not overly blown away, with the game. The new interface and scaling I really like. I like not having to mod it to get stuff like containers. The new characters seem interesting, though Neera's quest was a bit of a let down.

It didn't clear the text. It was a real journal with chronological entries, no quest names and really hard to follow if you didn't remember what you were supposed to do for a quest.

One stumbling block may be that Atari has put steamworks on it (without using any features of it, what with being an interplay like zombie company) which would preclude GOG. Others do have both versions for sale at the same time though.

I am glad they chose to move to steam. Probably wouldn't have bought anything at their strange site. Not that I will buy the game as I have the original one. But I never played BG2 and I am looking forward to the BG2 Enhanced Edition on steam.
