Baldur's Gate Tease

A new Baldur's Gate Website is online, though for mow it offers little more than a quote and some theme music. After determining this belongs to Beamdog, the digital distributor that put out MDK2 HD, the folks at GameBanshee reached out to former BioWare designer Trent Oster, co-founder of Beamdog, and got him to tell them this about whatever the site is for: "We're not related to the Steam complete edition, I can tell you that much. Other than that, we're hoping to announce something soon."

As much as I would like to get excited about a remake, Ive played through both BG and BG2 too many times. I know the story lines and quests pretty much by heart, sure the gameplay is cool and everything but the DnD 2.5 ruleset is so primitive and restrictive it really is huge step back from 3.0 or 3.5.

For me it's worse than that. The stupid, idiotic belief that one needs to "memorize" spells by "resting", which makes one have to rest-fight-rest-fight-rest-fight makes it hell. At this stage why not have the fighter lose 2 points of dex if he hasn't pooped for the day?
