On this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show, Eli talks about his new diet and how he's going to cope with being away from home base for a few days. We also break down some of this week's hottest releases, including an intriguing monster training game called Little Masters and Avengers Initiative.

If you're hot for Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, stick around. We've got a build and we discuss our experiences with the title, touching on what it's like to play a wicked old game on a platform that didn't exist when it first launched and the challenges Beamdog has in front of it, as it preps the exciting release.

Later in the show, we dive into the front page and also touch on Steam Greenlight, the latest video game crowd-sourcing thing. The rest of what we talk about is listed in our notes just below:

    Yay touch arcade show

    About Baldurs Gate. It´s an expensive game, sopeople will put in the time to understand it/make it work. Just like kodp the high price will keep away the 99 cent crowd that opens an app once and never dos again.

  • Spamstic

    Can Baldurs Gate be any harder to play than say.. Spiderwebs RPGs or something like that? Is it more in depth that them or about the same kinda thing.

    • Bytebrain

      It is very much like Spiderwebs games, indeed. In fact, their games owes everything to Baldur's Gate.
      It was the first RPG of its kind.

      Listening to the podcast, I would just mention to the Brad and Eli, that when you're fretting over the character creation, it's not overly important if you now everything there is to know about the different options.
      Most any character you create will be playable.

      One thing that could be an issue is if you choose an evil alignment, that will make the game much harder, and you'll miss out on a lot of quests.
      However, there do exists a few quest lines unique to evil characters, I seem to recall.

      The game may be intimidating to younger gamers not used to a game of this scope, and a lot will probably never give it a fair shake, but this game have a legion of fans and I think and hope it'll sell well.

      The original game took around 250 hours to complete if you wanted to see everything and complete every side quest, and this enchanched edition have additional content, and more is promised in the future as DLC.

      I just preordered the game for my pc, and I'll buy it the minute it shows up on the app store.

      Can't wait. :)

    What they have to do is to remove the downvote function. Who honestly cares if you don't like a game?

    Hate to correct you (because I know how you hate fact checking), but the fee to get on Greenlight is a one time fee only, not per game.

  • Fawks

    You guys gave Dungeon Defenders first wave a very well deserved review for its version. However, it has been updated and addressed a lot those problems. A re-review would be nice.
