    Aside for the fact that I already played all of them (and not a single one of them matched the original) that's the stupidest rebuttal imaginable. Well, one of the stupidest, at least.

    No, it's not.
    It was barely a common background among all the parts that made it good.
    Besides, I never said that I don't care if the story will be any decent. I just don't give a shit if it's going to be a direct sequel of BG2, so "Baldur's Gate story was done and this makes this game superfluous" is a borderline autistic argument as far as I'm concerned.

    Yeah, you aren't selling me this delusional bullshit. Sorry.

    What made BG stand out was elf waifus.
    You've got full elf waifus, half-elf waifus, and drow waifus.

    The gog store page lists "Real-time" in the genre section. But that's probably nothing as I"m assuming its a placeholder or such.

    Really hoping its turn based but if not ah well there will always be always ToEE if not. I'd be happy enough with a new decent DnD video game after so long.

    Ok here is a list of things I want to see:
    • A storyline which evolves slowly into a deep philosophical one (included IWD2 like humor)
    • Turnbased
    • A "slim" !believable! connection to the first and second game or else fuck of with BG 3 as title!
    • Music on par with music from Jeremy Soule
    • No fucking DOS2 clone/mod (I want new design and animation!)
    • Party based
    Ready?! GO!

    The GoG store page is hinting at the game being "real time", but it's not really clear if that's info from the official source or if it's just that they copy-pasted these "genre tags" from the original games.

    You do realize that almost all writing on "BG3" is done at this point? You wouldn't be working on it if you get hired.

    Still, good luck. I guess you must've enjoyed DOS2.

    I used to run a landscaping company. I say that with exaggeration - I was in my early teens and me and a buddy ran flyers into neighborhoods saying we'd mow their lawn for $20. We were pretty good. About fifteen years later my mum said, "You know those people always thought you were the hardest worker. Always coming out in the heat even when your buddy wasn't there. Always on schedule. Always did a good job." I was like damn, that feels good to know. Didn't realize my talents had drawn attention. What she didn't know was that our hard work also drew the attention of local landscapers. The ones who drive nice Fords with trailers full of equipment and habla Espanol. They used to bully us. Not kidding. They used to trash our flyers and if they were out while we were out they'd park their truck and watch us or they'd roll it by with all of them staring. Sometimes they'd rev the engine as they left. I used to always think of my cousin. He said that back in the 70s he ran an eggselling scheme where he'd take unused eggs and undercut the local providers. Until one day he got a phonecall. Remember, this was back when if you knew someone's house phone then you definitely knew where the house was. The guy on the line says he's from an industry egg seller. He asks if it's my cousin speaking. He says it is. The egg seller says if you don't stop undercutting us we are going to break your fucking kneecaps. He hangs up. Decades later I'm sitting with my lazy friend in his living room. By this point he'd stopped going out. I was pretty much working solo. He asked me if I'd gone to the houses lately. Before I answer he gets a phone call. Mexicans? No. It's the homeowners. He nods. He hangs up. He looks over at me. "We just got fired."

    Dude. What we? I was the one working the fucking lawns. Buddy. You fucking asshole. We. There was no we-we, man. Just me-we. And you ruined my Red Dead Revolver saves and you still have my PS2.

    Story fitting for BG3. Just switch around Mexicans with orcs and landscaping with adventuring. I hope Swen gives you a call.

    This game's development is going to be too horrifying to watch. The hope, the fear. I will be tortured by both, unable to avert my gaze. One thing that appears obvious, is that they are going to make this epic. Larian handles epic plots with the grace and subtlety of a 9 year old boy. My heart sinks.

    Oh that was non-fiction and 100% truth. I couldn't remember what I was going to say and then that memory came back to me. My friend really did turn off the PS2 when the game was saving and saying "Don't turn off while this icon is on." It's true. If you turn it off while it says that it'll wipe everything. I had every character unlocked, too.

    King of the series for me is BG1 with its low level adventures an freedom.
    I can't say I really like BG2 - it's decent game, some perts of it are best ever - like Irenicus voiceover, but its chamber nature - you can go wharer you want, 2-3 locations outside of Athcatla remind me Call of Duty and not in a good sense, also epicness that winds throug every crack in game - I never get to the end, two times become bored at exactly same point - at isle.
    No, BG1 is a king, however these two parts of one series are so different...
