Baldur’s Gate gets Steam Achievements

Okay, this came to as a surprise to me, and so far no major news sites noticed, but this is huge. Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II Enhanced Edition got Steam Achievements.

They are inactive at the moment, but the Siege of Dragonspear website tells us that the expansion will be released at the end of March, so it’s pretty reasonable to think that a patch will activate them soon. Also, the collector’s edition looks like this:

Really exciting news, we can finally show off our 100% with our favorite RPGs. Although it will be hard, as some of the achievements require to beat the game solo or on the hardest difficulty settings, and completing absolutely everything, including all three alignments.

The Witness – Development Milestone Reached

Some of you might remember The Witness from the 2013 PlayStation Experience, but not much was said about it since. It’s an independent exploration game from the creator of Braid featuring more than 600 puzzles.

It also features a really gorgeous art style, in case you didn’t notice. I guess pretty much everyone wants such a colorful game as soon as possible, right?

Still no release date, but developer Jonathan Blow posted some updates, he hints that the game is now in its last development phase.

It does *not* mean that the game is done. We still have a lot to do! But it *does* mean that the nature of the work changes and becomes simpler, because we don’t have to be making high-level creative decisions any more. It is now much more about turning the finish-the-game crank (making sure stuff plays well and polishing it up) for anything related to game design, modeling and texturing.

The Witness comes to PC and PS4.

Grow Home – Ubisoft’s new game looks amazing!

Okay, I tried to do more meaningful posts, but this is just simply awesome.

 

Ubisoft announced its “procedurally animated” PC game, developed by a small team called Ubisoft Reflections. The so called procedural animation was only an experiment, but now its a fully realized game inspired by movies like Wall-E and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

What I really like about this, is how vivid the colors are, I really hope that it makes its way to the consoles (maybe handhelds) as well. I always dread using UPlay.
