    another update on the the source code

    "She left me to die. YOU left me to die. But Shar... Shar wanted me to live."

    and at the end ( don't know if this was a recent update, but the top part definitely is)

    "If you wish me dead, brother, it must be by your hand. No one else."

    I don't see what would be the point of making another Baldur's Gate in 2D. The graphics are already very detailed as it is; it would be difficult to do significantly better, in 2D. Well, better enough to warrant a remake.

    I know I've said it in the other thread, but I hope that if this is a remake, it is 3D. I want to explore all these areas, Candlekeep, the Gnoll Stronghold, etc., in a way I could not not before. I understand the argument that 3D would make it a different game, but it has to be different, right? If what you want to play is the original, it already exists.

    [​IMG] I don't believe it's a Sarevok line, could be mistaken though. Some of the "quotes" aren't from the game at all.

    What's the point of this nonsense anyway (the cryptic quotes and 'updates')? If there's real movement there, just come out and say so. If not, they shouldn't be screwing around with it in the first place. A lot of people are going to be pissed.

    The worst thing that could happen is that it's just a BG1 port to IPhone/Mac Tablet.
    And it is not even a farfetched idea, sadly (I remember something of a 'Mac' quote by Trent Oster in the sense of -why would I need a mac?- )

    Exactly what I was thinking. I can somewhat excuse this cheap PR stunt once, but anything beyond that is just annoying. Just bloody announce if you have something to announce. I guess they're expecting that people are so desperate for ANYTHING with the BG name in it that random quotes in the source code will be front page news every other day. :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. I think people are desperate for anything with the BG name on it, though I hope he's willing to deal with the incredibly HUGE backlash should he fail to deliver.
