    I got a collection of them and icewind dale at some point. Sadly my netbook was not having it and so I have not done them yet.

    I'm skeptical. Beamdog may have done a decent enough job updating the Baldur's Gate & Icewind Dale games to work properly on newer systems, but their own produced content that came along with the updated games were average at best in my opinion.

    Probably best to wait and see how it turns out.

    Just think of it this way.

    It's like playing Dragon Age, but with much more depth to the gameplay, and a coherent storyline complete with real choices--as opposed to just the illusion of them.

    Obviously this will likely not be as good as the originals were, but it's hard to pass up an attempt at reviving a classic.

    Ahh, my eyes lit up when I saw the world Baldur's gate, and was hoping that it would be some sort of sequel or something at least reminiscent of the PS2/GCUBE baldur's gate: dark alliance games, but it looks more like the prehistoric PC games than it does the home-console ones...

    Though if you said Bauldur's Gate to me whatever the game equivalent of word association is would see me head to those it is hardly like there has been a lack of dungeon crawlers/mouse killers in recent times, a lack of good co-op ones perhaps but not a lack of them in general.
