Can't say I favour any of them over the other. Apart from the new content (likely minimal), I'm mostly looking forward to their effect on the community and the possible completely new game they mention ("bg3").

Sitting at over 100 playthroughs (who knows, maybe close to 300) and currently getting ready to play through the BG series one more time in anticipation of the BG/BG2 EE releases :P

Is it telling that I've only played a class outside of paladin or fighter three times in these series?

Supposedly this summer, but I wouldn't be surprised if that gets pushed nearer to the end of the year.

Yeah, they have always said it would be done this summer, and remember summer actually goes until September 21 so there is still quite a bit of time left.

BG1 definitely!
- You didn't need some random character to mark a location on your map you could go anywhere you wanted (excluding bandit camp and cloakwood)
- Had more interesting side quests (who doesn't remember ruffie and the demon)
- Characters that joined your party were more interesting and humorous. The nutcase Tiax who for some reason could summon a ghast, no BG2 character could do that!
- The paper dolls in BG1 were more realistic, BG2 leather made them look like they were on steroids.

I could go on but these are the more important points.

Pretty much all major platforms, PC and Mac included. I think the iPad is just the primary target audience, at least marketing-wise. If you search our news forums you'll find a ton of details on the enhanced editions.

Well, Sir Belisarius location is: "If there is a bright center of the universe, I'm in the city it's farthest from!", so yeah, not much news reaches that city at the edge of the universe, and by the time it get's there, it's old. For some old news: there's a vanilla version of Baldur's Gate and some people made mods for it

If they allow you a choice to play either BG1 or BG2 like tutu or BGT does with a single .exe file that would make it so you did not have to chose and I wonder if they have permission to create a connecting arc between the 2 like BGT does.

BG2 I enjoyed both games and both can benenfit from updated graphics. I really liked ToB. I liked the interaction of the characters in BG2 more and I also feel that BG I was more linear. I played BG 2 a lot more than BG 1. BG 2 just appealed to me more. Seemed more intricate, more challenging.

I voted BG2. Thing is, I'm wondering how moddable it is likely to be. I have to admit, I don't play unmodded Baldur's Gate anymore, 1 or 2. I *really* hope we can get some awesome mods up and running quickly.

I much prefer the second game which was the first one I played unless you count the demo for BG 1. I think it had better characters and story. I would enjoy some new characters for BG2. Does anyone know if there are new NPS's for BG2EE or do they just carry over the ones from BGee?

They are bringing over Dorn, Neera and Rasaad. Not sure about Baeloth. They are also adding an Evil Assassin chic to the mix. Modders are helping on the project so expect to see tons of NPCs mods converted soon after release of BG2EE.

We are going to see the culmination of the enitre BG community come together with BG2EE. The modding possibilities should be endless.

Almost finished with BGEE. That's why I voted for BG2. I know I'll have to wait eons so I'll be replaying BGEE many times and probably IWD2.

This is the second time i hear that Modders are involved in BG2EE.
Is there some source I can read up on?

VERY Close call. I Chose BG1EE for the explorational feeling as well.

What got my attention was being able to Play BG1 or BG2 on an Ipad/android device!
It sounds tempting. First Reviews are not looking good, though. I'll start another thread for people that can share some experience with BG2 on an Ipad.
