Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Twitter Commentary

So, Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition came out a month ago, and if you know me at all, you know I’m a huge fan of this series. If you kept track of the comments on the Twitter review of Neverwinter Nights 2 I did, you’ll know I promised to do something like it for BG:EE, and sure enough here we are.

If you’re just joining us (hi Twitter!), you should be aware that I’ve played the game a few times, going all the way back to the pre-TotSC days. About 5 years ago, I soloed through as a Thief. So I’m approaching this from the standpoint of revisiting an old friend, rather than somebody entirely new to the series. Also, I like to talk about game design a lot, because sometimes I sorta-kinda mod them, and back when BG1 was a new thing I even helped make one.

Which is to say I like to revisit my old friends and beat them up in the name of science.

This will be an exceptionally long set of posts – I wrote something on the order of 150+ tweets, and I have a lot of things to say, some of which could easily be individual blog posts by themselves. If you for some reason feel like you need me to elaborate on a point, feel free to ask. If you feel the need to go and read the raw tweets because it’s the future or something, they run from December 15, 2012 to January 5, 2013.

I’m going to try to post one of these each day until they’re done, give or take. May take a bit, but I will link them all in this post when they go up. As a technical note, I’m not clear how well the Twitter embedding is going to work with this many posts. If it fails and you start seeing a lot of plain URLs, let me know and I’ll think of something.

I think it should also go without saying that while I tried to keep spoilers out of the tweets as much as possible, I have no constraints whatsoever here. I’m assuming you’ve played BG1 and BG2. I will also pretend that you’ve played a good number of other games that came out in the last 10 years, but I won’t attempt to spoil them. If the reference went over your head, do feel free to ask.
