    I wasnt really replying to you. I just wrote what is actually in the video. If you call that being jaded and bitching youre an imbecile who falls for that kind of vacuous "nice feelings" PR.
    And thats why you find anything that doesnt support your nice feelings "exhausting". Which is irrelevant anyway.

    When we get some actual info about good design and good mechanics, then it will be something to feel good about.
    Until then... feel whatever the fuck you want.

    They think BG series used 3.5E. Larian is officially BG series retartet. EPIC FAILZ.

    Anyone who thinks orcs looks blacks are racist. They're not even black. LMAO There are actual black humans in D&D and they aren't limited in alignment and most human FR cultures that are black skinned tend to good/neutral.

    Things I found interesting:

    - New story but many references to previous events and also characters from the previous games that you'll recognize
    - Interaction with the environment, for example you can pick up a table and throw it at someone
    - SV likes the freedom that you had in bg2 where you needed to collect 20k gold to save Imoen, will be in bg3 as well ( as was in DOS )
    - You can't use your old bg2 save files for anything
    - He doesnt want to talk about mechanics or party size or if its isometric or not ( they will show it before they tell about it )
    - You will spend a lot of time in character creation
    - You will be able to take sub classes
    - They want the community feedback to see what they want and expect

    Teleportation from DOS done a bit better.

    The rest is as expected, but not revealing the crucial mechanics and features is creating negative feedback they are trying to avoid by not revealing any.

    It obviously means non linear quest design and game progression.

    Tnaks, sometimes words at West have very intricate meaning ahahah.

    I didn't mention "feelings" (good or otherwise) at any point, just one single useful information.
    But feel free to be angry and autistic about it.

    Shut your dirty vatnik mouth - Chapter 2 in BG2 is about the most fun I've ever had in a cRPG. There is so much shit to do.

    They are avoiding like the plague talking about the gameplay, I'm starting to think maybe there is a chance they don't even have the combat system developed and they were just waiting to see the how community reacted to choose between them

    More and more I suspect that the Dark Alliance games were Swen's favorite Baldur's Gate titles (which may be why he thought BG was based on 3rd edition).

    There is a good chance Larian has changed the spell slot system into something else and also that they might convince WOTC to change it in 6th edition as well...

    Every 20 minutes upgrading something, because if not, new gamers will be bored?

    Not anymore, 5E has a new great feature called milestones . In curse of Strahd when you reach important parts of the story, find an important artefact you get a milestone and therefore a level. You dont have to do the accountant job, you just give away levels very fast. Usually barely a few fights, but deadly tactical fights, and no grinding at all.If you manage to solve it without fighting with clever out of the box thinking you get your level too.

    I want to backstab a bardbarian with a ballista in a tavern.

    I know this is very very specific, but I need to.

    The reluctance to say if it is isometric or not is disturbing.
