I am happy to announce that Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition (BG:EE) is out and currently installed on my PC. I have allready progressed as much as my limited free time and attention span allow, and would like to share my thoughts.

The sum of it is that the game is pretty much the same, but improved. The major differences are high-res graphics (otherwise not changed) and the fact that the game engine has been replaced by the BGII engine. Also a few recruitable NPC's with their own quests have been added.

Some of you may know that I am a fan of the Baldur's Gate Saga. So, I would like to share with you some great news (Enhanced Edition in the making) and my insights into a still quite active modding community, that not only sought to improve the game, but recently proceeded to bring it to android devices.

Last weekend I attended a panel in the aforementioned comic convention in Athens (info here). It is something i sometimes do, and this panel had a special appeal. The subject, quite obviously, was: "Comics and videogames: from paper to cartridge and pc!". The discussion started from the question whether computer games can tell a story, and how story telling in that industry works, but also raised some interesting questions about game development.

Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) recently went Free. Or partly free. Since September (USA) and November (Europe) the game offers a free play option with an in game store. So after trying out WoW and DDO (see my previous blog entry for that), I decided to try out LOTRO as well.

I recently found had a couple of weeks of free time, and decided to play the World of Warcraft (WoW) 10 day free trial. When i was done with that I decided to also play Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO), just because it's free (even though it employs microtransactions for better items etc). I played both games only for a while, so this is not a review. After all, both games have been around for a while, and they have been reviewed and commented on extensively. I aspire only to draw a comparison between the two games, in a way that will hopefully be beneficial from a game developer's point of view.
