    I would like to know what kind of BG3 game Obsidian recently pitched which didn't pan through.
    I need to compare it to Larian's BG3.

    DA:I's exploration with DA:O's combat and BG style quest design would be cool.

    It was rejected because Josh forgot to Ctrl+H fampyr and vampire.

    Or maybe he forgot to include multiplayer.

    On second thought, I would leave that to DA: Dread Wolf Rises and rather BG3 to have old school feel.

    I couldn't watch that vid you posted, sorry. I get your point, though.

    ***

    Anyone think BG3 will even be on par with DA:O?

    If BG3 will try to emulate / "take inspiration" from Dragon Age, even Dragon Age: Origins it will be decline imho.

    I did this first!

    I am still waiting to clap hands and go all "whos the top tier cassandra here??"

    but Larian doesn't show any gameplay because they're obviously afraid of gamers reaction

    I am 99% sure BG3 will be TB. Only reason Larian has not confirmed this is because they know a certain number of BG purists will complain it is not RTwP (like they did with Torment 2) and wants to make some awesome combat gameplay demo to show that even as TB Bg3 combat can be awesome.

    Is that a praise of DA:O or a jab at Larian?

    Oh, don't bother... I will just read review on your blog...

    Hmm... Lilura rated my post "cuck" when I stated my willingness to read her blog and her opinions about DA:O.

    She doesn't like submissive men. Welp. Nobody does.

    My problem is not that. Is that they will probably not follow the rules. For him, missing, that worked in tons of games, "obviously not work", spell slots are not intuitive, leveling is too slow(...)

    I'm enjoying the people attacking Larian for considering changing the rules, while simultaneously praising a bunch of games that changed the rules. You can't have it both ways

    Agreed. Which is why it's a shame that Larian apparently forgot how to develop a fun TB system with D:OS2.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy Serpent in the Staglands Dead State Divinity: Original Sin Project: Eternity Torment: Tides of Numenera Wasteland 2 Shadorwun: Hong Kong Divinity: Original Sin 2 A Beautifully Desolate Campaign Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    Lilura is willing to defend the virtues of DA:O, but won't play Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

    Scratch an RPG elitist, find a former BioWare fan (who is still attached to them and won't take any game they didn't make seriously) under the surface?

    I do. Well, it depends on the amount and type of submissiveness.

    RE: PF:K vs PoE, I kinda prefer ToME tbh.


    Maybe people should stop comparing it to the IE games and treat it as its own thing. It is streamlined in the most terrible way, yes, but the confusing parts come from stacking rules and how shit the UI and SFX are, not anything else.
