    It's all almost looks like their work toward audience start to accept THINGS - first "it's not isometric guys", when you accept it, second will be "it's action RPG like Witcher guys" and later who know else ahaha.

    Gee, you dont say? Surely then you can explain how its "the stupidest rebuttal" being such a genius as you are.
    And add whats the difference between those and the BG games. Considering you specifically said:

    Same....core...mechanics...

    Really? No shit? It seems your unusually high IQ is working on such frequencies you cant remember what you said previously, or maybe your mouth just cant catch up with the illuminating explosions of thoughts.

    let me remind you:
    Who the fuck ever said anything about direct sequel? You talking to yourself much?
    You must excuse us lowly peons not being able to telepathically discern what your super evolved brain is actually thinking. You dumb fuck.

    Enlighten us with examples of what your high IQ considers a good story in RPGs similar to BG games these days. or any RPG... Let us bask at the glory of your illuminating thoughts!

    YES! That's absolutely right. Take any series that include time travel - they are died in the end, killed by time travels itself, turning in a absolute disaster. It's a very complex theme, that should be handled carefully, very carefully.
    And because there is NO people that could handle that modern days it's just a red signal for any show or game.

    All the talks are premature now, we don't know a shit about the game, in the end there are good game without isometric, TB etc, I think everybody agree with that, it's all wild speculations now and nothing else.

    However one thing I'm sure of already - if at least half of the SJW shit shown in this post

    will creep into that BG3 game with same level of SJW toxicity, I'm not only won't buy it - I won't even pirate it, just like I didn't play PoE2, PoE1 (except the begining), and Kingmaker where SJW is a main stone of stumbling for me.

    Anyway...


    I found one interview where Sven clarified that the illithid invasion isnt happening in the beginning of the game.

    Whether that means its something we will be able to prevent, or just happens somewhere later in the game, maybe the finale? - He did not say.
    But at least we wont start killing illithids during early levels.

    "Alone, you may resist. But together, you can overcome."

    Considering how secretive they're being that reference seems like it might be a borderline MMORPG.

    with time travel it can be even at the start! But not like when you start, just the start you reach when finishing

    I'm really hoping this turns out good, but if they make it an action game, or cheese-in time travelling to BG1/2 it will supersuck.

    There wont be time traveling just because a forum dumbass threw that out.

    I know you are all too sensitive and easily hypnotized by any negative idea, but for fuck sake... have atleast enough self fucking control not to automatically accept nonsense just because someone blurted it out.

    Not even BG III's announcement can stop the Codex from being Codex. We literally know nothing about the game but it's apparently enough to already cross it as utter mainstream shit...

    Bear in mind that nobody would revive 20 old game series to just make one game. So we can easlily expect at least BG4 if previous game sold enough copies.
    So this tentacle attack could be a bridge to a next game.

    Maybe my understanding of the process is shit, but i thought this goes on in a controlled environment in mindflayer cities and is performed on bound slaves. Did a mindflayer tadpole just fly into that dude, just like that? Is this a thing that happens now in the lore? Also i thought this took a bit of time. In the video it happens in like 5 seconds, that's almost instantly. Hell, on the very page you posted it says that it takes several days for all the transformations to happen in order to get an adult illithid.
    On the other hand that is from AD&D Second edition and some things have change in the meantime, so maybe this is all canon in 5E. I haven't read that.

    Anyway, i think this will be the least of the problems this game will have.

    thats not true, I have played ARPG where you miss..grimdawn you can miss based on your offensive ability vs. the opponents defense and they can also block your attack and it has nothing to do with your mouse button pushing or anything

    Especially mindfucking since it is made by a Codex darling developer, who made 2 of the best cRPGs of the last decade. But the codex only needs 10 minutes to mob against them.
