    It doesn't really disturb me particularly if they are not doing much except making it run reliably on modern hardware. Nothing's making you buy it if you're happy with the original + mods.

    I have IWD on my Ipad and it actually works pretty well. They didn't install any SJW characters and I now have something I can easily pick up and play if I'm lying sick in bed or going on a long road trip.

    I guess IWD2 EE is only a matter of time now...

    Well, minus the fact the original is probably going to disappear from digital storefronts.

    Is the voice actor for Ravel the same as the hobo lady in the beginning of F2?

    Backgrounds look much better, black outlining around sprites looks shit.

    EDIT: Sprites are so pixelated that they NEED TO BE OUTLINED at this point.

    I wouldn't mind celestia dlc since I've wanted to play a game about that place ever since I first heard about it in torment. But you're right in that they would probably fuck it up somehow :(


    I own the GoG version so I might as well use the discount. They haven't changed anything so is it possible that mods will be compatible with this version as well?

    I despise the folks who give money to Oster and his merry band of do-nothings.

    Releasing old games with mods shouldn't be a way to make a living unless you are GOG and ask for a fair price. Beamdog not only does a shitty job at it every single time but they charge the cost of new games. Parasitic assholes.

    Looks like shit. Avellone is confirmed (once again) to be a sell-out.

    Well, what is he supposed to do? As a designer its in his interest to revive games that are part of his artistic legacy and get people playing them again.

    How do you mean? It was being sold, and from what I hear it was the top-selling GOG game of all time. Clearly people have been playing it. Now it'll get released on Steam and tablets, and that's a huge market, sure, but on the whole that rationalization does not hold water.

    Avellone never did that final proof pass he wanted, he was already in bed with Beamdog, they'd pay him a few bucks to do it now. That's all there is, win-win. I doubt he could've affected whatever bizarre corporate arrangements led to dumping the Black Isle development credit if he wanted to.

    How did it work with the previous EEs, btw? Did they keep their place in the chart or did they start from zero? I see the BGs are on the second page, but I don't know where they were before.
    Would be a pretty good deal for Beamdog to get a game as the best seller without having to do anything with it at all.

    They start from zero. All IE games used to be in the top 10.

    I'm not sure what Avellone's lifestyle is like but I'm pretty sure he isn't short of money. Besides, wasn't his departure from Obsidian spurred by artistic differences?

    I think he sold his stake when he left.

    Still, I doubt he's poor.

    In case you missed it, they streamed the EE last night, with MCA: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/133266809

    The increased saturation of the yellow font bothers me, probably more than it should... somehow, it stands out too much.

    I honestly dont know why GOG even allows this sort of shit of not having the original games available for purchase... they do keep them in your library if you bought them before but why take them down in the first place?
    Are the EE editons the "official" games now?
    Fuck Terento and his band of hackjobs and Fuck Avellone for beign a sellout and a non entity for the last decade
    So he left Obsidian over "creative differences" yeah I bet the felt he had to get creative sitting on his ass and playing with his balls all days and Fergus had other ideas

    They do whatever the publisher of the game wants, they can't keep games up for sale if the publisher doesn't want them there, obviously.
