The enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate II just came out on iPad, and the folks who made it want to convince you that it's worth your time and money.
Thirteen years after release, Baldur's Gate II is still one of the best role-playing games of all time. No joke. If you consider yourself an RPG fan, this is a game you have to play.
Games with isometric graphics—a slightly rotated view with a top-down perspective—were a big deal several years ago. Static, isometric maps, mostly used in strategy and role-playing games, allowed the developers to create spectacular, detailed visuals, and most of them have aged really well.
Bars, clubs and noisy taverns are always crucial locations in a story-driven game. They are save points, places where we can sell useless stuff from our inventory, gather information, meet a key character, or just simply get into trouble.
Remember that awesome scene near the beginning of Baldur's Gate II, when you're escaping that first (annoying) dungeon and Irenicus comes out, kidnaps one of your companions, and wreaks havoc everywhere?
It's almost hard to believe that Diablo III is actually out. Blizzard's action-roleplaying game has been delayed so many times over the past decade, it came awfully close to challenging Duke Nukem Forever for the title of Vaporware King.
Following up on last night's Baldur's Gate website tease, today a YouTube user named Beamdogger has uploaded a teaser trailer for...something, featuring voice clips from both Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II and the world's longest logo reveal. Update: Looks like it's fake.
As "spiritual successor" to the Baldur's Gate series, BioWare's upcoming fantasy RPG has lot to live up to. Not to mention a console port expectation that no PC RPG has ever fulfilled.
