Review: Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition

Baldur’s Gate II holds a pretty special place in my heart. It was easily my favorite RPG from my younger days, and to be honest not much has changed since. Classic Dungeons & Dragons gameplay combined with wonderful...

Baldur's Gate recreated as Neverwinter Nights 2 mod

A crazy mod team has spent seven years recreating Baldur's Gate in the Neverwinter Nights 2 engine. Not parts of it -- the whole thing. They didn't just start, either; it's done and it took seven years. Yup, it's crazy. It's also really aw...

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition finally comes to Mac

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is a hassle-free version of one of the best role-playing games of all time. It perhaps isn't as "enhanced" as it could have been, but since the core game remains largely untouched, you're still getting o...

Review: Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition

Baldur's Gate will forever be regarded as one of the classic PC RPGs. A lot of people never experienced it back in 1998, and it's not exactly the best-looking game anymore. To complicate things, it can be a pain to get the old game to run o...

Baldur's Gate: EE developer: 'The Wii is a toy'

The DTOID Show: Dust 514, GTA V, and Adventure Time DS!

Hey there! If you didn't catch today's Destructoid Show, Revision3's resident videogame hipster Anthony Carboni filled in for me alongside Max, while I was stuck at home sick. I'm disappointed I couldn't be there (especially when things go...


First look at Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition for iPad

When it was announced that Baldur's Gate was getting an enhanced edition courtesy of Overhaul Games, we broke out the champagne and didn't look back. We're a rather excitable bunch, after all. The news of this expanded version coming to iPa...


Baldur's Gate 3 is part of a 'larger plan' and may happen
