    It was not good enough. But with a bit of work that game can be transformed to a good one. Even usable as engine perhaps for BG3.

    But A game like bg2 will return. because good game still sell, and crap not. Giant setps will be made in the comming months Who will but the franchise, and what will stormreach do?

    If I only had the money to do it myself.

    I don't know, nothing heard in how long? Not one bit of news about it. I think we can safely say it's not going to happen. If obsidian were making it, it would be on their "games in development" page, surely.

    If BG3 were still in pre-development I don't think it would be shown on their website. For example, Bethesda Softworks still has Fallout 3 in production, but there isno mention of it in any part of the site.

    And it's still the best game I've played... ever.

    Which is why we need BG3, now!

    BG3...I hope they're not using the latest 3.5 rules like the one they used in ToEE. It is the worst rules i have ever played.
    but, I agree to all of you, guys. BG3 would be real great or a real nightmare.

    BG3 will definitely be using the latest D&D rules once it's actually made. WoTC demands it of all their licensed games (which makes sense; they don't want any new products to use outdated rules).

    [​IMG] Yeah I know that they will use the latest rules, but I just hope that they will add some changes in the 3.5 rules and make it simpler. I just did not like the "craft magic items" feats and the turn-based fighting system. How can I make fun with my spells if I need action points to cast my spells?

    Actually, the 3e setup is easier for spell casting than 2e. In 2e, if a wizard is going to cast a spell that's all he does, and if someone attacks him while he's casting......poof! The spell is wasted. In 3e, a wizard can move a little bit and if someone attacks him while he's casting the spell may still work. It sounds like your concern isn't as much about the ruleset but about whether the game will be real time or turn based.

    I liked BG and IWD series combat system much more than PoR and ToEE. Hopefully BG3 will be with old school comabat system with pause.

    Why? So you can be inevitably disappointed?

    Yes. The glory days are long gone now. All we have left are tales of the past, to share with the young ones as we sit in the tavern during the dark winter nights.
