It looks fine. Definitely not retina, but you don't notice it from a normal viewing distance.

Filters that "soften things" are terrible. I don't want blurry vasoline smeared over my games. I'll buy when I get home but I'm not hopeful.

Why not check out videos and screens before you judge?
It looks better than vanilla BG when on max zoom, if they hadn't used the filter it would have been way too pixelly...

For those who wonder about multiplayer, a dedicated multiplatform matchmaking system will be released at a later date.

Is the text difficult to read on the Mini? If you own Avadon or Avernum, how does it compare?

Sorry but I'm not updating my os, until this is fixed you've lost my sale.

You can use the "TAB" button on pc to reveal everything you can manipulate on a map, it wasn't present on BG Vanilla.

There's an icon on the iPad version that does the same. Makes it much easier to see where you need to touch to open doors and stairs...

Anyone else stuck in a loop in the tutorial?

I'm at the part where the thief teaches you to pick locks. I went to the cabinet, picked the lock, got party xp for it, but it didn't seem to register. She keeps asking me to pick the lock, but it's no longer pickable. What dumbass thing did I do wrong?
