Oh, baby! How sweet it is. More info here:
That sounds like one to buy, hope it is not as buggy as the Initial release of the Baldurs Gate Enhanced release. Will wait a bit on this one and get involved after a release and see what people say and if they need to patch it or not. Going on most releases these days it may be worth waiting a few months.
I agree. I am excited about it but in no rush to buy it just yet. I'll wait for the inevitable patching too. Besides I am up to my eyeballs in stuff to play so I can wait on it. But I am really excited about it. Hopefully they do Planescape Torment and Icewind Dale II as well in time.
I have the original copy of this game I was thinking about trying to install. I remember making it to the tower before losing my save somewhere. Soooo far.
It will be using the up-to date engine, so it will likely be quite smooth.
Wouldn't mind playing this again. The only gripe I had with Icewind Dale was it seemed like there was a TON of combat. I never got around to picking up the sequel. But I did enjoy it. And for anyone that enjoys Icewind Dale, I highlyrecommend reading the Icewind Dale series.
I never played Icewind Dale, and its apparent combat focus was the reason. While I enjoy the combat of these games, I always played them primarily for the story/adventure/characters. I have a feeling I'd play this and wish it were Baldur's Gate...
You still have all those things in Icewind Dale. It just has a much heavier focus on dungeon crawling than Baldur's Gate did.
If there's one thing IWD does better than BG, it'd be general style and presentation. The music is easily the best of all the old Infinity Engine games, and the atmosphere is so lonely and mysterious, you can't help but get drawn into it.
Does it get enhanced graphics like they did with Baldurs Gate EE II?
Downloading now !!!
I hope it is as good and addicting as I remember it to be.
Thats funny, because IWD was marketed primarily as a dungeon crawling experience. I think maybe it was made so Bioware could get a game out that took less time to have to develop a story for in the same vein as Baldurs Gate. Regardless of whether or not thats the reason, it was still a great game if you didnt go in to it with the expectation of it being an epic RPG like Baldurs Gate was.
There was a phase and still is whereupon these types of games (RPGs) get called dungeon crawlers because that is what you do, go through different dungeons fighting monsters and finding treasure.
Most if not all RPGs could be and can be called dungeon crawlers to some extent, some more than others. Even a pure breed dungeon crawler like The Legend of Grimrock has a story of sorts.
Dungeon crawlers are games that generally have exploration/combat/loot gathering first and story second. That fits games like Icewind Dale, Dungeon, Siege, the Eye of the Beholder Series, and others to a T. Baldur's Gate is different in the fact that there are multiple towns and NPCs you interact with where the combat aspect isn't the main portion of the game. Heck, even DA II could be considered a Dungeon Crawler as you spend most of your time not in dungeons in one city to get a quest and go out to the same dungeons over and over again to kill mobs and get loot. There's not even that much exploration involved.
Agreed, you put it far better I could
Yeah at that time I generally didn't pay attention to marketing or reviews. When it came to a D&D game, I was just like "buy." Still, enjoyed it.
Same as me, I see an RPG, D&D, I want it
For the most part. There were still some flops. I'm thinking mainly pre-Baldur's Gate though. Anyone remember Alien Logic?
I did love me the hell out of some Dark Sun and Al'Quadim.
OMG Dark Sun. I would get rage-tastic every time I ran into a Mind Flayer (I think it was a Mind Flayer -- it was something that would use mind control and I would lose control of my party members)? I did not do well with that game and it was one of the only ones I never finished.
Does anyone know what the status is for the MAS version?
