They just pulled a beamdog, I don't remember there being this much of an uproar at them hiding the classic version behind a purchase of the enhanced edition of the Baldur's Gates. Hell at least these guys didn't up the price of their version compared to the old one don't know why they are so upset. Especially since they weren't making money off the old release and the old release wasn't free.

faggot had his work taken and sold for profit by a corporation after they tried to delist his work he did for free and replace it with an inferior product, then they banned him from their (presumably) primary communication platform, and his only response is "d-d-don't be mean to them!!!"
lmao

I see it as their fault for making something for free and just giving it to GOG to sell it. Next time, don't be a fucking dumbass. Do what all those openX did.

I admire business acumen of Nightdive Studio. You cannot allow superior version for 5$ competing with your own brand new full price release.

BTW - if you don't like the idea of Gothic 1/2 with OpenGothic being available only as a free addon to my anime erotic visual novella set in the Gothic world - you need to outbid my offer of 100$ for the rights sent to THQ Nordic.

both looks pretty much the same, if you want to prove something try to use better example my dear edgelord

The White Dragon scene looks better in orginal for example but this is the only example so far that i saw that shows that orginal looks better, it is the other way around most of the time. But difference is super minimal.

The old release of Blade Runner was 10 dollars as well, they didn't jack up the price like beamdog with it's zero effort BG Enhanced Editions. Plus the original version of Blade Runner wasn't even available on steam before they added it to this release I don't get why this would make players upset. Modders in question sure. For comparison: Beamdog never made OG Baldur's Gate available to steam owners but they did for sure hide the original version behind the purchase of the more expensive EE on GoG.

To this day I still don't get why the "Shitdog" releases didn't get the same response as this, only maybe worse since Baldur's Gate and Planetescape: Tournament are more iconic games. They didn't "Remaster" shit either and made a lot of things worse.

Another dev studio that got off relatively scot-free with releasing blurry smudged shit with shitty Mobile UI embedded on top of the game was the "Simon the Sorcerer 25th Anniversary Edition" guys, although to be fair I guess they didn't get a lot of attention either: https://store.steampowered.com/app/674150/Simon_the_Sorcerer_25th_Anniversary_Edition/

worst thing beamdog EEs did was greatly reduce the interest in GemRB.
