That is the best news I've had all year.

Always good when you see people going out of their way to breath new life into classic games. Definitely a worthwhile venture.

The fact that they have ideas to give my favorite crpg, Planescape:Torment, the same treatment has me very excited as well. Let alone their interest in continuing the Baldur's Gate series.

We need more proper crpgs. The genre as a whole has been getting pretty watered down over the last few years. A revival of the hardcore rpg is definitely a positive in my books.

I missed Planescape as a kid - I only found it a few years agp. It's something special to be sure, here's hoping it gets a full series.

I spent more times on Baldur's Gate 2 than all of the Bethesda titles combined, and I LOVE the Bethesda games. So excited about this.

I know, right. Morrowind was the greatest RPG ever... until you bring Black Isle and AD&D back into the picture.

I'd just love to see Overhaul Games try and restore and enhance Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords - the story of that game is almost as disgusting as the dissolution of Black Isle.
