A podcast dedicated to Dragon Age: Origins has featured an interview with the Baldur's Gate 2: Redux mod team, focused on recreating the original Baldur's Gate 2 experience using the Dragon Age engine. The modding group has had great success so far in recreating parts of the Irenicus Dungeon, screenshots of which can be found on the team's site. The Dragon Age Podcast group's interview reveals all the secrets behind the modding effort, including how others can get involved and some very ambitious release dates.
Here's an excerpt from the Podcast:
"We've actually had this interview on hold for quite a while... Besides myself, we had six members of the BG2 Redux present for this interview." The podcast host continues, "Anyone interested in doing modding of their own will probably find a lot of interest to them in this interview."
You can find the full interview and all of the information surrounding the remake at the Dragon Age Podcast website. The interview begins at around 49:19. Some screenshots of the mod are below.
Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"
First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
