Overhaul Games: A New Golden Age For Advanced Dungeons & Dragons?

Overhaul Games, a division of Beamdog, is working to update and enhance Baldur’s Gate. What does this mean for fans of the epic series of PC role playing games? Brought to you by RantGaming.com (Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, Culture, PC, Retro)

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.
