I was about to make a thread but you beat me to it.Just checked what was new on the Xbox one store and out of nowhere a wild Baldurs gate appeared..
That was a nigh on twenty year throwback I wasnt expecting
Dude that was another game I played with my friend Co op all the time. It was tough. I don't remember if I ever beat it. I loved that game.Don't forget Hunter: Reckoning!
Yeah, that was one of the best eras for couch co-op. I played anything I could find with a top-down perspective with my brothers non-stop.Dude that was another game I played with my friend Co op all the time. It was tough. I don't remember if I ever beat it. I loved that game.
I hope that I can find someone to play these classics with again. If they don't have online co op.
I was like 12 years old when I played hunter the reckoning and bg. Good memories.
I loved co op so much that I rented any co op game I could find for years. Had a friend come over every weekend to play with me.Yeah, that was one of the best eras for couch co-op. I played anything I could find with a top-down perspective with my brothers non-stop.
I'm pretty out of the loop on it honestly. I just noticed a trailer on the PS store the other day. Looked very different, with possibly a closer action-style camera? That may just be the trailer though.Are you interested in the 2021 Dark Alliance that releases in June.?
I've never finished it .Oh shit never played the fallout one, was it good?
This has happened before with GTA V and Skyrim. Both of those games are on 360 but their original discs don't work on X1. I have a feeling this isn't really backwards compatibility but a repackaging of the old title to be resold. I might have to do the license. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 and 2 are also like this.This is a first. A game that's been added to backwards compatibility, but it doesn't work with the original disc.
For a lot of people, that mostly misses the point of backwards compatibility.
I own the game. I'm not buying it again.
PS2/Xbox graphics quality was virtually the same, GC version in the other hand was quite noticeably inferior as to IQ and animation.Played on PS2 last year.
It was plenty fun but not something I'd play again. The most straightforward of dungeon crawlers. Graphics were good for early PS2, and probably even better on OG XBOX.
Indeed, they used super sample anti-aliasing on the PS2 version, running the game at 2x internal resolution basically.Fun game, and a technical miracle when it released first on Playstation 2.
Many of the early PS2 games suffered from image quality, aliasing and blurry texture issues, but then this game comes out with smooth as silk edges, 60 fps framerate, great textures with specular highlights and jaw-dropping water physics.
BGDA's programmer (Ezra Dreisbach) had a lot of experience working with the complex architecture of the Sega Saturn (see: Lobotomy Software and their ports of Quake, Powerslave, Duke Nukem 3D to the Saturn) and this helped him take advantage of the PS2's vector units, whereas other developers had been trying to brute-force PS2 titles using the CPU.
(Would love to see DF Retro do an episode on BGDA!)
