    A mysterious 24-hour countdown is now ticking away at the new Baldur's Gate website.
    I can't wait.

    Edit: From the source code on the website...

    I wonder if they'll announce a new game. =3
    I used to love Baldur's Gate games even the GBA one.

    I'm yet to play an RPG that's as good as Baldur's Gate. I'd still rather play it then most of the new RPGs.

    If it is a new one, and not just a HD re-make, then I hope they stick to the 2D style.

    This is the website ATM, so it's still useless:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    :(

    EDIT: now it changed a little:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    But now error 500 again.

    Even I could write a better code for the loader if that's all that loads. I waited for mine to go to 00:00:00 from about 11:55:00 or so. Good way to spend time making a thesis report..

    EDIT: Actually managed to get the page to load and it says 0:00:00 instead of the blank field. But lets wait and see :)

    Not likely be a remake or sequel. The game franchise licences has been scattered to the wind as far as I remember. Interplay owned the BG licence last I looked, but NOT the DnD licence.

    It's likely a portable rerelease. Hopefully they fix all the bugs first.

    Doubt they'd make a portable release when there's GemRB

    Is that the announcement? Sweet. I finished BG2 but never tried BG1, this'll give me a good excuse to do so.

    Sweet.

    Now, if they'll port the game over for us console players, this news will be even sweeter...

    I'm a little disappointed... I hope they stick true to the original

    I've had BG1 and 2 for such a long time now but I have yet to play them. Is it really as good as you say it is? If so I might have to dig them out and give them a try...

    I own both BG 1&2 and have yet to play them also due to not having anytime, but I can tell that they are both games that I would enjoy.

    I have BG1 + Tales of the Sword Coast & BG2, and I must say that I am interested to see what the 'enhanced' edition is about...

    Then if Icewind dale gets a bit of love too it'd be nice. Wouldn't be hard since it was pretty much the same as BG
