I am incredibly excited about this game. Reading the comments on that article was incredibly depressing. It's all they better/not change to 4th. I'm commitng sepukku if they release it for consloles. Planescape: Torment should be redone instead. Bioware sucks. I think I'm officially done reading comments. And I visit the PS blog every Tuesday.
Comment sections for any site are pretty abysmal places. I have a sort of masochistic tendency to read the comments for Yahoo News articles just to see how many people make comments about Obama being a muslim atheist socialist in the pockets of big banks. And being from Kenya. Oh, and all sorts of comments about how women and "queers" have no rights.
I've heard this is going to be a pretty straight up port of the two with some added content. Kinda hope that they'll make the interface or graphics a lot better (at least get the option to get away from isometric view; ugh). Makes me sound like a WRPG heretic, but it's a big part of why I have a lot of trouble getting into Bioware's and Black Isle's Infinity Engine RPG's. It's really hard for me to get immersed in the settings. Also doesn't help that I don't really like AD&D 2E. Probably would've helped if I didn't get into WRPG's very late (my first was Morrowind), but while I can definitely see how they'd be fine for their time, they feel really antiquated to a lot of newcomers.
Though on that note, I'm pretty surprised 4E didn't see more video games based on its system. Considering the thing is practically a video game system in pen and paper form, you'd think it would be perfect. But I think there's only one game using it, and it's apparently terrible. Oh well. Maybe 5E will be more popular/better and we'll see a D&D game resurgence.
