    Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition

    My friends over at Overhaul Games have released Baldur’s Gate, the Enhanced Edition! If you were a fan of the original or just want to see what Baldur’s Gate was all about I encourage you to check this out. I’ve played the PC version over the past few months and it certainly brought back a lot of memories (and humbled me a little, given how many times I had my butt kicked). It is available for PC and the iPad and there looks to be Android and Mac versions coming down the road. Click here to head over to Overhaul’s page.
