D&D-based RPG for Apple fanboys? :D  Nah. It's "too complex". Like Windows.

Playing Balders Gate makes me feel inadequate as a gamer. So hard...

Hopefully this will run on my ipad 1!

Do you get a discount for this version if you already bought Baldur's Gate from GOG.com?

Except the originals came out on Mac. Your joke fails.

So the pad can run a 14 years old PC game, not bad =P /end sarcasm

Was actually thinkin the same thing. One of Bioware's first games too if I remember correctly. I played it on my old Mac OS 8 machine--great game.

Pretty sure it has gotten to the point where people make anti-Apple comments on news that has anything to do with Apple for the sheer purpose of getting the most thumbs-up. Kind of sad really.

Please come to android. It can already be run via the GemRB emulator, but i never did have the patience to get that working. and i would GLADLY pay to play this on my lunch break...

I'm normally an Android fan, but this would be a compellnig reason to get the new iPad. Guess I'll have both systems, at least until Android or Ubuntu or whatever dominates. I can't see a company controlling hardware and software stay on top forever.

Dude, EA does not even own Baldur's Gate license. Nor is Bioware.

john_4Told you Bioware (EA's Bitch) would bastardize it. I beat it only has 1-3 characters at a time too instead of six and no D&D rules anymore.

Yeah it'll suck if Bioware bastardizes a game they already made 15 years ago that is being "enhanced" by a company that isn't Bioware and has nothing to do with EA. Try reading the first sentence of the article and getting a tutor for basic reading comprehension.

The screenshot doesn't look "enhanced" at all to me. Maybe I'm missing something.

Maybe so. I could not find any info that confirms or disproves this. You might be right, but my joke doesn't fail since virtually every Apple customer deems everything that doesn't involve pressing more than 3 buttons as "too complex".

All the hate!!

Seriously though, this is great news for the consumers. If this enhanced edition sells very well, who knows what will be next? Maybe we will see Bioware make more games to continue on with the saga.

Wrong....

Apple II not Mac....

So far this is the 1st reason I've came across to buy an iPad. If they Apple it down for idiots I'll be wicked fustrated!! The whole point of that game was the complexity. I would imagine it'll run just fine. I wonder however how big the game will be if it'll be on a tablet. Is this a proof of concept or an actual plan to release it?

Oh great another legendary game for bioware to screw up... perfect.

I think Sarevok will kick their a**es on a touchscreen...

john_4Last time I played Baldur's Gate Bioware's name was there.

Interplay was the publisher, and probably the holder of any property rights for the game, which would have went to Infogrames, and then Vivendi, before winding up at Activision. Assuming someone wasn't able to ply the rights away somewhere in the process.

Never played the original game but I might play this one. Hearing that this game was the foundation of something like Dragon Age: Origins is enough to try it out. I just love a good story.

So, where's the official information about PC release, website states iPad and nothing else.
