People like to call Dragon Age a spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate – and while that may be true it has to be said that Dragon age, nice as it is, just doesn’t hold a candle to one of the games that made Bioware a household name. Good news for fans of that game is that Beamdog’s “enhanced Edition” of the game is hitting PC  this week, with Android, iPad and MAC versions coming a bit later.

Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition includes three new characters: Dorn Il-Khan, Neera the Wild Mage, and Rasaad yn Bashir, as well as one new area: The Black Pits. Beamdog is also adding new voice sets, support for high-resolution displays, and multiplayer support which includes connectivity between all platforms. Sexy.

Here’s a new trailer for an old game.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
