How do YOU "Android"?

DeeDee Member Posts: 10,447
So while we get things set up on our end, I'd like to take this moment to ask those of you who have been waiting: What are you most looking forward to about having the game on your device?

Do you plan to play the game on the bus on your way to work, on the beach while you're on vacation, on the couch with friends and family, in a movie theatre while "watching" a bad movie?

We're putting together some literature and I've been tasked with mining quotable mentions. So if you're so excited you can't contain it and you just have to shout your enthusiasm from the rooftops, post it here.

Or even better, make a video about it and post a link! Tell us why the Android version is important to you.

    To play anywhere will be sweet. On the couch while the missus is hogging the TV, in bed and at work on breaks! I do think that cloud saves need to be implemented for the potential to be fully realised though. Play a bit before work at the desk. Come home pick up the save on the Mac till tea. Back on the tablet on the couch after tea.

    If only Steam worked on tablets...

    Well, I think that was too deep for most transient to comprehend - what I mean is that having cloud saves would be highly impractical, given that the app is available at 3 different app stores + beamdog, which would require cooperation between them to pull such a feat, which is nigh impossible due to some tenets of capitalism.
    By the way, Steam already has cloud saves and Steam Family, so you ca share savegames or even the game itself between different computers - and I believe a tablet with Windows 8?

    I don't have an android device, but I have feelings about this topic...
    I play more in the computer as I enjoy that much more, but certainly going in a trip and having the game in my mobile device was amazing (an iPad user talking about this!!... Nice?), playing while everyone else was bored... Plus playing in school, the iPad may be big, but anyway it's slim and easy to hide under a book, so actually no one noticed that I had beaten Sarevok without taking damage in portuguese class, nor that I was investigating a Mine in the south of a region of Faerun.
    It's also amazing for waiting times, those moments waiting in the medic, while Adventuring in the Sword Coast, not to mention going to my grandparents house and playing the game while everyone is talking in the living, I'm shut up playing BG, I don't think my family likes much the game...
    I think that this won't affect me much as a I OS user, but I clearly see that it's something nice what was done, Android has an amazing commercial success rate, plus, you guys ported an engine from 13 (Almost 14 as we are in 2014) years ago to a mobile operative system.
    I can say that having the game working so well on a touch device amazed me, before BG:EE was out for iPad, I just kept saying that it wasn't going to be as good at it is now nor how it can be in a PC, but it was improved with newer versions a lot, in older versions for ad BG:EE, crashes were very common because of the save game size of end-game moments, so basically you had to save at every time, but the saved games were changed to stop making a copy of the files from the SAV on the save folder and it was reduced in weight, now iPad handles this much better.

    At last... I will be able to play BG, with a cup of tea and a custard cream, snuggled up next to the missus whilst she is watching Corrie...

    Domestic bliss is only achievable playing BGEEdroid...


    Until then...

    I will be spending most of my time in the shed trying to romance Viconia waving my little gnome...

    It means I can play Baldurs Gate on my Android tablet and watch porn on my PC at the same time!

    Ditto. I had long been eyeing a tablet, but the announce of BG:EE coming to Android back in 2012 sealed my decision to purchase a Nexus 10. No regrets, and I can't wait to play the full version!

    I will be playing when commuting, looking after my children in the early mornings and on the loo, and as many other times I can snatch.
