Those graphics look really bad. How do they plan to sell any copies?

ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

Made the mistake of getting BG:EE and I won't make that mistake again. I've already purchased BG & BGII from GOG so I can mod, etc. Much more fun that way.

You do get that people are working on modding BG:EE, right? Chances are the big and popular mods will get ported to it sooner or later. Your mistake wasn't getting EE, it was getting it before the modding community had time with it.

Also cool, I might get it down the line if the good mods are ported to it, once that happens there's not much reason NOT to get it.

Until they can mod back in the original FMVs, the original remains superior.

Already done for the first. They don't have much for EE mods, but they have gotten that done.

I just hope they add enough content to the BG2 EE to convince the naysayers of the 1st one that it's worth it. More content, NPCs, dungeons, etc...

Cool! ...Is what I want to say.

What's the deal with those wonky 3D level areas?

30 seconds later, I pre-order it.

Those 3D videos were the original renders I guess? So this time we'll get an actual REMASTERED version of the game, instead of a photoshopped one.

It what way does that negate not buying the EE?
'original with mods is better'
'no, get ee so it can be as good as the original sometime maybe'
