Is it coming out on Steam?

Also I'm very bummed Dave wasn't in the quick look.

I'm seeing more dungeons than dragons.

BioWare, nevar forget.

Posted by Xymox

I expect THAC0 to be mentioned at least once in this quick look.

Edited by phrosnite

THAC0 = To Hit Armor Class 0

For those that may be wondering...

Edit: Vinny said it in the quicklook so... nvm.

What's this, another Quick Look? Don't mind if I do.

No Snider?!?!?!

BUMMER

Posted by BenderUnit22

I don't really see what's enhanced about this, this looks exactly like I remember all Infinity Engine games. I liked Baldur's Gate 2, Planescape Torment and Icewind Dale a lot, but that D&D combat was always so slow and boring, I never finished any of them (also, I get distracted by sidequests a lot until I forget what I was supposed to do and give up.)

PS: Can't you press H to remove the HUD? At least I think you could in BG2 and forward.

At 05:57, did Vinny say "Space Hamsters?"

GO FOR THE EYES, BOO

So am I the only one who found it weird that they don't react to "You're a queer fellow" ?

@Cizcan: Famous in the Baldur's Gate game, Boo.

Posted by JamesJeux007

I know he is EXTREMELY busy at the moment, especially with the "beta" of the new site coming out hopefully this month, but no Dave for this Quick Look seems really weird to me :'(

But hey, some Vinny and Ryan action is always awesome ! (That sounds wrong xD)

Total Dragon Age rip-off!

Posted by Brodehouse

I hate that the website selling this game requires me to make an account. Is my personal information worth more than the 20 dollars you're selling the game for? Now I'm not going to buy it.

I dunno, I feel like I use 'queer' to mean 'odd' more often than I do 'gay'. I do use 'gay' to mean 'homosexual' more often than 'happy' though.

Posted by PimblyCharles

It's always great going back to influential games like this and seeing where many of the great RPGs this generation got their influence from.

Posted by Sarx

Baldurs Gate 1 with BGtutu installed seems more enhanced than this "enhanced edition". A shame, really.

I've never used queer in any context to be honest and if I want to say someone is 'odd' i'd say 'weird'. Also 'gay' has a totally different meaning to me, that I won't get in to at this moment :P.

Why is he selecting his dudes ONE BY ONE when they're all just attacking the same target..? And if the tool tip delay bothers him then WHY DOESN'T HE JUST CHANGE IT? I can't watch this video.

Ironically, I find I use it mostly when doing tabletop games, you need the vocabulary for 'strange' to build the sorts of mini-mysteries about things; "You hear a [dramatic pause] a queer noise from the other room, you can't quite put your finger on it. It sounds ..."

I knew this was going to be a bit tough to watch but him using all his spells on the first enemy then just sending everyone, including rogues and mages, to stand toe to toe with dudes and just trade blows...

ugh

Huh? Queer doesn't just mean "homosexual"

Edited by AndrewB

The reason you don't like Xzar is because he's a Chaotic Evil psychopath.

Posted by redelectric

Dave, you were definatley missed for this Quick Look!!!

Posted by CaLe

This game looks really boring.

Yeah, it's an old fantasy game.

Besides, this was long before Bioware allowed homosexual romances.

Oh whatup.

"You must gather your party before venturing forth"

"You must gather your party before venturing forth"

"You must gather your party before venturing forth"

Sounds like they stopped the voice spam when changing areas! (unless I just missed it before Ryan turned off the volume)

No I know that, but I just expected them to make a funny comment, at least Vinny. But I guess i'm just a childish asshole who always sees the funny in stuff like these. 
 
Edit: Also as I mentioned earlier gay etc. has never meant "homosexual" to me.
Posted by Sword5

Early Mages are a bummer. You cast magic missile. Now go to bed.

Posted by TatsurouXIII

See, Ryan, it's not that games got better. They got simpler and require you to think less. You seem to be forgetting how old this game's core is. Sure, gear comparison windows are handy, but it's really not that much of a pain to do it manually.

Edited by Haze

Over the last month I played Planscape Torment for the first time. No prior experience and no nostalgia and man is that game still fantastic. Combat isn't great, wasn't great when it was released from what I understand but the world, the characters, and the story are all still incredible.

Now I need to decide whether to play this or just skip it and get Balder's Gate 2 on GoG.

Posted by SgtSphynx

No Boo or Minsc?! This is not a complete Quick look

Baldurs Gate 2 reference. Also the space hamster in Mass Effect 2 & 3, which is also a reference to Baldurs Gate 2.

Oh wow, that music takes me back

Posted by RazielCuts

Matt Rorie should of been brought in for this.

Posted by D0tti

This doesn't seem enhanced at all.

Posted by Darkhollow

Hint for people new to Baldur's Gate..myself included(I learned this the hard way):

-ALWAYS- quick save every few seconds or before dialogue and/or before resting,so in case you die you can reload.

-Put tooltip delay on around 15-20% so you have to wait only 1-2 seconds before seeing the items/npc's you hover over (very helpful).

Posted by IClavdivs

Ugh. Really wish Dave had been able to do this one. It's kind of irritating watching Ryan muddle through this. not his fault in any way, bit still irritating.

Posted by Spirit_of_Jazz

Stop breaking my heart Dave. If you want story you go for Torment, if you want exploration you go BG2, and if you want combat you go ID.

Posted by myslead

ahhh yeah
