    I mean, in my view time travel has almost never been done in a not-shit way in almost any medium. It just seems like a poisonous thing to attempt, especially for a studio like Larian that's never shown an ounce of quality in complicated plots, coherent worlds or engaging stories.

    My fab-optimistic hope would be that they use the agglomerated lore of FR as the basis for a nice, high-fantasy romp that hits the big hollywood notes, and then uses the stability that provides to work on subversive jokes and zany cases. Don't worry about where the gods are coming from or any deep conspiracy about the illithid, just work off what we all know about mindflayers and Baldur's Gate and then focus on fun wacky situations that the player actually experiences.

    About time!

    It is about expectations. No way no how will this game be as good as the first two (even with the flaws they have). But, if one goes expecting good for what is in 2019/2020 and it is at least somehwta 'fun' so be it. But, no way, will this live up to the hype.

    And, the interview proves this with their bashing the older games already. Not to mention how they insult gamers. LMAO

    well, what did you all expect?

    not only is it going to be nothing like 1&2 gameplay-wise, it's going to be a Cthulhu rip-off.

    We will finally be able to see the fear in the orc's eye.

    Did you complete Divinity 2? A couple of times in that one there's a whole-scale slaughter of civilians that's given the gallows humor treatment.

    When Sven specifically states this is a turn based D&D game, I’ll be back. Bye!

    They don't breed like zombies, they're parasitic. They infect the host and take over its body. And it isn't a "retcon" you dunce, they've always been this way.

    All this anti rule shit is nonsense. D&D is a game. Games have rules. Without the rules it is just story. Might as well read a fuykkin' book then. HOLY FUKK.


    Why play monopoly. Just read a book about Disney. They know how to buy property in the real world.

    5E is not a particularly complex game or ruleset either

    This is all true. We're long ways away from any of the minds related to the series. Graphics, systems, rulesets, all that's changed.

    I don't get attached to BG3 -- that's just a name to sell copies. However, I'm very much intrigued by what Larian does with the D&D setting.

    The original BG games were also "adaptations", people are reading what they want to read from what Sven said.
    Wait until there's actually some information to go on

    So I'm just reading through that Stadia thing on Google. And among the available games to come is Baldurs Gate 3.

    Nevermind, missed it in the OP.

    Obviously, they're going to follow the proven success of Bethesda and BG3 will be Fallout 3 with spells.
