Developer Overhaul Games announced that Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition has been released, and it is now live on Beamdog. In addition, Ubisoft announced that Far Cry 3 is now available for all platforms (PS3, X360 and PC) in Europe, and is planned for a December 4th release in North America.
As the press release reads, Overhaul Games has brought this classic back to life. In addition to enhancing graphics and gameplay, Overhaul Games has added new allies to join your party, complete with unique quests. And for the ultimate test of tactical skills, players can enter the Black Pits for an arena challenge.
Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for PC is available exclusively through Beamdog for $19.99. The game can be installed through either the Beamdog client or a stand-alone installer.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
