I always have, and always will love the original game (DA:O) the best, as I was born & raised on all ye olde Baldur’s gate/Planescape/Idewind Dale games of yore, and I LOVE the depth and difficulty(?) of the combat/spell mechanics. (Plus, you know, the characters were reasonably well-written, and the areas were pretty… Read more
This is ludicrous. I’m not going to get into the specifics on the rights (or otherwise) of Apple to charge whatever it wants on it’s own platform.... but rather, to point out the most obvious flaw in their demands .... any user who wants to subscribe directly to their content can do so on their websites directly.… Read more
