  • Baldur’s Gate 2: Enhanced Edition Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal Review

    Despite the fact that I’ve written other articles on Baldur’s Gate 2, I’ve never yet written a full review of the game itself nor the update with the Enhanced Edition. I think it’s about time I put my thoughts down on the overall experience with this game not just with the Enhanced Edition but even […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: Yet Another Round

    I decided after fulfilling my recent Diablo 3 fix to return to Baldur’s Gate 2 as I never finished my last round. I wanted to mix it up a little bit and try a few things to see how my latest party would feel. This time, I’m starting with an human Undead Hunter.

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: One More Party Composition

    Since my computer cannot play Path of Exile, I’ve been thinking about getting back into Baldur’s Gate 2. I didn’t finish my last run through and probably won’t just because I hate breaking momentum. That said, I’ve been theorycrafting to see if there are any small optimizations to an interesting party that I haven’t tried […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: More Character Mod’ing with EE Keeper

    So once again, I decided to try some hacks with EE Keeper. Now, previously, I was able to change the NPCs into classes that were far more interesting than what they were provided. There wasn’t any technical penalties thus far in the game. The next question is whether I could try a few other combinations, […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: Working with EE Keeper

    At a certain point where you feel you’ve accomplished your basic goals in a game, the way you can take it to the next level is modding it. With Baldur’s Gate 2, there’s a really cool utility called EE Keeper that allows you to modify your saved games for the Enhanced Edition. The main purpose […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: Modifying NPCs to Be More Interesting

    I heard there’s a program that allows you to modify NPCs a bit. The main benefit is to give the NPCs a little more variety and hopefully make them more appealing (since many have either poor stats or just offer nothing in terms of their classes). So here’s some ideas in terms of making the […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition: Best Evil Party Combination?

    Right now, I’m deciding on giving a purely evil party a try. There’s a LOT of ramifications by choosing this path since the vast majority of this game is based around being a relatively good party. What I want to discuss here is the implications of choosing an evil party and how that can affect […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition: More Theory Crafting Class Combinations

    Having beaten Shadows of Amn again, I decided to just mess around with the party creation process and see what I could come up with considering all the new classes. The first thing I decided to try was taking a good aligned party again and toying with some statistics, gear and dual class possibilities. Here’s […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: The Journey Continues (with the Enhanced Edition)

    I’m still slowly going through the various areas in Shadows of Amn and making mental notes of differences in the game as well as trying out a few new things that I missed with my previous runs (such as doing the full romance quest line with Jaheira). As I attempt to rush through several areas […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition (Mac version): Initial Impressions

    Since my gaming rig died and the time to fix it is an unknown quantity at this time, I decided to continue my distraction with Baldur’s Gate 2 by getting the Enhanced Edition for my Macbook Pro. I’m actually quite happy that they had a Mac version since I’m at the point in my life […]
