...seriously, though: the lockdown happens from December 21st to December 29th. If you don't believe the game can still be released this year, then you are far more pessimistic than many.

I'm patiently waiting for Baldur's Gate on my iPad - believe me, the ones who are suffering the most are the developers, not us - and in the meanwhile I have started to play Avadon HD for the first time, to get in the mood. There's lots of games out there for people to enjoy in the meanwhile - and it's not like the developers owe us anything at all, so let them take the time they need to deliver a solid game. Even if it will probably need to be patched afterwards.

Cheers.

[Edit: what dannythefool said - he posted faster than me]
With the normal review period seeming to be around 2-3 weeks, I think it's fair to be pessimistic in this case. There's no assurance that they'll get another expedited review.

That being said, I also agree they don't "owe" us anything, it will be out when it's out. I'm still very much enjoying Horn...

The end of the world is still a couple of weeks away! I actually planned to double dip and get BG for both PC and iPad...but now that I have sunk many hours into the PC version on a large screen, I am a little reluctant to continue my game on the iPad.

Perhaps I will buy it when they get the cross platform multiplayer aspect set up properly!

On another note..I thought Horn was quite heavily padded to extend the play time at the expense of the pacing etc. It is definitely a good game but I would have enjoyed it more if the game was more condensed(by a lot).Just my opinion!

Nice, I've heard good things about Horn - might try it out in the future!

As for double dipping, I had considered it as well, though I don't really do much desktop gaming... How's the game treating you? Are you enjoying it?

Had you played it before?

yeah I have played it before years ago(stuck to the canon party then.. going to try being more adventurous this time round!) and I am enjoying it again thanks to some of the improvements to the usability and UI. I have only managed to sink 8 hours into it so far though!

...I wish I could find 8h of my time to sink into anything at the moment

I just hope BG doesn't just turn into something that goes into my ever-growing backlog.

By the way, the devs just posted:

"We've made a lot of progress on the iPad build of the game. But, we are seeing out of memory problems on the iPad1."

Why even bother asking that question? If you're handing out free iPad 4s, just shut up and do it.
