    He's right though. RTWP is the pure essence of decline, and decline is the default state of the unwashed masses.

    Why are people shitting on Larian here and praising Owlcat? D:OS 2 is fucking amazing and Pathfinder was a gigantic disappointment.

    To be fair here. Div 2 was not that bad. Some npcs were really nice. It was like one inch from greatness vanilla fantasy without going full realistic GOT shit.

    It's tough to enjoy OS 1/2 if you can read.

    DOS is an infantile childrens adventure with pretty colors and 0 style + writing on the level of 12yo kids who like to receive quests from talking dogs and Mr Crabs on the beach

    Btw TB vs. RTwP will be the LEAST of this game's problems trust me

    So it fits perfectly with BG but with a better combat system. Good point.

    On a slightly more serious note, which has been left untouched by most people, I want to know if they plan on using any of the old cast. Rob Paulsen just got a gig to do some Animaniacs stuff, but I don't see him saying no. Same with Jennifer Hale. I wonder if any of the old voices will show up.

    :love:

    I'd bet on RTwP too, but maybe not to that extent. Didn't Larian open a bazillion studios? It could be completely unrelated to the team that have worked on D:OS.

    D:OS2 was more of a disappointment since Swen doubled down on the quest markers, controllers, multiplayer, and other qualities of consolization. Those are the problems that will translate into BG3.

    Since Beamdog manged to get the old cast for Dragonspear, don't see how Larian wouldn't be able to get them as well if they want to.

    Another thing to think about: Mods of the engine for BG1 and BG2.

    After all, didn’t both DOS games come with tools for module making?

    Do people really love Larian here? I got more of a sense that they have their fans and they’re less hated than inXile or Obsidian, but that’s not necessarily saying much. Fallen Heroes generated so much hype because Avonaeon is making it and everybody who’s played the Expeditions games tends to really like them.

    I do think this is the perfect project for Larian, but mostly because their mediocrity is the perfect fit for a mediocre series (I have a lot of affection for BG and BG2, I just don’t think I’d like them much if they came out today—it’s all nostalgia for me).

    Not officially. I have to side with luj1

    Edit: DOS2 is a bad game. It doesn't matter that it won codex's GOTY. It's bad joke.

    The codex is still owed a video of autofellatio because of Grimoire. There need to be a page on the codex for public debts. DarkUnderlord
