The originals are so old now just getting 'em running properly on modern computers could be a real damn hassle, too. Any compatibility patches would be fanmade at this point. YMMV.

There's probably no raisin not to just grab Icewind Dale Enhanced on Steam or whatever, on sale or otherwise, assuming yer that interested, D. Apparently it's also on iOS/Android? I wonder how those versions hold up.

Yeah, I'd probably do Enhanced. Unless they changed or for some raisin *removed* content, I have no beef with remasters.

Well, a lot of people don't wanna pay 20 bucks for a twenty year old game.

Nah, the content is apparently the same. In addition to the remastered visuals it sounds like they fixed old bugs, modernized the UI for current resolutions, and even added some minor content in the form of new items and classes/kits and stuff carried over from Baldur's Gate Enhanced. Sounds like a straight upgrade.

Nice. And I agree with HunterF, I'm usually very reluctant to pay for remasters when I played through it the first time. But if it's new to me I can be more generous. :awesome

Oh, don't get me wrong. I bought the enhanced, cuz I want more games like these made. And yeah, they're straight upgrades over the originals. Lotta people whine about the price, though.

Lotta those people are probably vastly underestimating the amount of work it takes to remaster something. And the older it is the more work it takes. Even if the original games were rock solid to begin with.

Like, there will probably never be Fallout 1 & 2 remasters because those games are as old or older than the Infinity Engine RPGs, filled with technical issues, and effin' massive even by today's open world standards. Doesn't matter if Bethesda is sitting on a cash mountain built from selling Fallout 3 Funko Pops and Fallout Shelter lunch boxes: it's still a ridiculously challenging and expensive task with no guarantee of a worthwhile payoff, and even if it happened, just like BG and Icewind, it wouldn't happen for under $20.

Oh! I just remembered the Icewind Dale OST is quite good.

Did the Enhanced Edition touch the soundtrack? Remasters of JRPGs often do that with very very mixed results.

Oh! I also just remembered that Neverwinter Nights Enhanced came out a few days ago.

...

There's no way NWN holds up, enhanced or otherwise. That campaign had just too many problems.

Doubt it. BG didn't have it's soundtrack changed.

*sigh* I wish they did a non-MMO version of this game. I'd be over that like you wouldn't believe.

Like most MMOs, STO has issues that wouldn't be helped just by taking out the MMO parts.

I figured as much, since I rarely hear about it outside of C-F. What are its biggest faults?

Disgaea 5 coming to Steam next month as Disgaea 5 Complete. So, the base game and all the DLC from the original PS4 version.

I'm not sure I have time to play another disgaea game. I loved the first one, then played a bit of Disgaea 2, some of La Pucelle, some of Phantom Brave, and of course Prinny! Can I Really Be the Hero?! but yeah nothing captured the magic again for me.

Maybe I should find an LP to watch. The Disgaea anime was amazing though.

I have half a mind to stream at least one NIS tactics game at some point. Maybe loading up wherever I left off in Disgaea 2, or starting from scratch in Disgaea 5 Complete when it comes out. I think Phantom Brave is on Steam as well.

I really want those Prinny games to get ported someday. Feels wrong trapping those on the PSP. :(

Other news, kinda: Crusader Kings 2 is free on Steam right now for some raisin. Go add another massive Paradox strategy game to yer lives if you have the time for 'em.

I've still barely scratched the surface on Europa Universalis IV.

There's another new challenger to the batshit wildly popular (or at least batshit wildly zeitgeisty) Battle Royale genre coming to Early Access tomorrow and I'm kinda intrigued, at least after a quick read 'n' a glance.

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/0 ... l-heights/

I've bounced off PUBG hard in the last several months and Fortnite doesn't really appeal to me, but this... hmm. I wonder. If it's a little laid-back as it appears to be and kinda Saints Row-y in its aesthetic and design, man, that might be really cool.

Lawbreakers failed miserably, so... better luck to these guys this time!
