For all of you out there who have been waiting for something to give on the unfortunate Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition contractual situation, I have good news -- it's all been resolved. It's been two months since the removal of the game by request of Atari, but all is well, and the game is now available again on the App Store, and on Beamdog's site.

The occasionally messy licensing issue is an unfortunate side effect of digital-only media, but I'm just glad the game is back up, as it's a really solid re-imagining of one of the most classic RPGs of all time.
