Yeah I'm happy they figured out but all that seems pretty pricey and also I don't know that I could play them without mods these days.
Honestly I don't know that I could identify where mod and base game even meet at this point.
I had a bunch of MS bucks from rewards and whatnot, so I used them on it, and I would say it probably isn't worth the price. I only got the BG games, and despite knowing how much great content is in them, I'm still sort of left feeling like if I didn't have the nostalgia for them they would be kind of terrible? They look pretty rough in general, but especially on a TV.
Also, yes, lacking mods is a real bummer. Especially since most everything Beamdog added to them is...pretty outright bad?
@efesell: plenty of game breaking bugs in BG2:EE as well. Had one instance where a crucial character is supposed to enter an area, initiate conversation with the player, and thus proceed the story. Everything worked except the actual talking part, so my game was completely locked from progressing, say 20-25 hours in.
