Did Beamdog Change the Nature of Torment?
As an original player of all these games, I purchased the BG1, BG2, and IWD enhanced editions when they first came out, directly through Beamdog. The BG1 and IWD EE editions were great, but some of BG2's changes were unsettling and disgusting. However, I purchased Siege of Dragonspear and was completely appalled. Luckily, Beamdog gave me my money back. I've read encouraging news that Beamdog parted ways with Amber Scott and Dee Pennyway. Beamdog seems to have gone out of their way to assert that they changed/added no new content in PST:EE as an attempt at winning back former fans like me, claiming it was the creative choice of Chris Avellone, but I realize that David Gaider is still creative director.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Leftist propaganda has no place in AD&D games. If the game has no political agenda weaved into it like Siege of Dragonspear did, I will buy it. The same goes for future content. I am hesitant and skeptical though. Is PST:EE truly a clean and proper update of the original game which honest Southern gentlemen like myself can play with dignity as we drink our mint juleps and listen to Dixie?
