    That's the plan.

    Official forums are down currently, probably due to the sudden rush of traffic.

    I won't buy it either, at least for now, even if a part of me feels the nostalgia to buy something with "Baldur's Gate" written on it :p

    And now I just read above the word "DLC". The total opposite of what the "gaming conception" of Baldur's Gate was. Damn, they are following Bioware's path with that Mass Effect/Dragon Age thing.

    I'd never encourage illegal software download, but sometimes software houses just deserve it.

    True... 20$ for a updated 15 year old game (most of which updates are free to get anyways) and the few new things are sold extra as dlc? come on...

    I didn't pay for any extras yet, just the Enchanced Version. I don't get what you guys are talking about.

    So far, I have to say I am pretty impressed. The wider view is excellent, more portrait choices, more NPCs, BG2 Engine, more quests and the menus are a bit different but you adjust right away. The Zoom feature ONLY works with a mouse wheel, they will have to fix that in an update/patch.

    There are little touches that are realy nice. I noticed when buying Throwing Axes for Kaigan in Beregost at the Smithy, there was another type of throwing axe that does d6+2 damage for sale. Monty has ** each in Shortswords and Slings, which is fitting for a halfling IMO. The creature placement is nice. When entering the crossroads south of the FAI, I spoke with Elminster and then I wasn't attacked by Xvarts or Gibberlings. So far, I have only encounterd single creatures when finding random creatures in the wilderness. The set encounters of 3 Hobgoblins were still there on the path surrounding the FAI. I created an Evil Skald. Added Monty and Xzar, then Viccy, Kaigan.
    I want to add Dorn, but he doesn't just join, he tells you to get lost. I will have to see where that goes
    . There is more, but I don't want to give it all away.

    The location of the 3 new NPCs are...

    Dorn -
    Found him in the FAI, but is not joinable, yet. TBD...
    Meera the Wild Mage -
    Beregost, I 'll let you find her...
    Rashaad -
    Nashkel, as soon as you cross the bridge, he is located immediately to the south, surrounded by commoners, teaching them about being a Sun Soul Monk. Very simple dialogue options to get him to join your group.

    I bought it, as I have several friends who bought it as well, (they never played the original before) and we intend to try out some multiplayer action before christmas.
