No sir, that's like saying I don't watch gay porn to trigger the libs. I don't watch gay porn because I am not a faggot.

The only redeeming quality of the game is the combat. The writing is atrocious and the story uninteresting. Wotr was also gay and I enjoyed it, because it had some good companions and the story was good overall.

The combat is fucking dogshit just as it was in DOS1 & DOS2.

The only 2 things it achieves is padding out hours of extra playtime, and that it makes retarded normies think they're playing chess. Everyone who praises this games combat has this smugness about them, like they think they gained a few extra IQ points and are suddenly RPG connoisseur's. It's really pathetic to watch, but it's to be expected since everything about BG3 is pretentious slop.

Its not a big deal. Your activism is empty, and means nothing. You not playing a good game, which you'd probably like, won't reduce the number of men sucking dick in the world. Your sacrifice in vain, your martyrdom unnoticed, your crucifixion unattended. Even if its a small crucifixion, its an infinitely ineffective one, when the outcome of it is null.

If you really believe, with all your heart, and you stand up with courageous fervor to defend the honor of this commercial product then there's a chance that your in-game GF will turn into a real girl and do a IRL romance with you. Are you guys really willing to risk missing out on a goblin blowjob just so you can trash talk about video games online???

$45.71 when adjusted. I've probably pasted this link a dozen times now.

Central European fun-fact:
Duh, back in the day when this game appeared, we would had paid 2/3 of the salary for it. If we knew where to even buy it, that is.
Also, it's the same *nominal* amount we pay for games here today. Entry-level IT salaries are nominally 15 times as much now.

Poland, late 90s, father had a salary of 1600 zł, games costed 100zł, so roughly 1/16 of paycheck. Considering current minimum and average salaries, the game that cost 200-250zł are roughly 50% cheaper compared to salaries. So i dont know where a game costed 2/3 of salary, maybe in some complete bulgarian shithole with 200 people working the lowest of wages.

Who cares about some "Central Europe" you stupid potato! :outrage:

A very fun fact: 60 (or more) > 45,71 (or less).
I know, i know - mind blowing.

Actually my two first non-pirated games, bought in 96, were Diablo 1 and Cilvilization 2 and both cost ~150zł. All others on the other hand were free (or about 20zł iirc). 100zł is too low estimate for an AAA game if you wanted one when it came out. OTOH, they were often put relatively quickly on sale.

But again who cares about potatoland? Does Guybrush Threepwood sound like a typical Potato name? If he was called Trepwódowski then maybe. But he would probably be an American Jew then anyway.

You are correct; it's likely just a time misunderstanding.
The 1990s were a tumultuous era in post-communistic countries; you know that yourself, I believe. Poland disbanded its communist ties in 1989, just as our country did. I'd wager Poland's nominal wages were much, much lower at that time than in the late 1990s. Same as here again. In 1992, an okay, livable salary was 2600 CZK (also my parent's :) ). 1999 salaries at the same department were 12000–15000 CZK or so. And the USD hadn't changed much in its real value over those nine years ;D Games have cost the same nominal amount of 1600-2200 CZK ever since, up until today.

Date of release of The Secret of the Monkey Island: October 1990. At least I hope I remember correctly that the picture is from the end of the first Monkey Island and not from the second.

You remember correctly. 1st part has a happy ending. The second: it was all a dream and they are kids iirc.

You must consoom every single piece of media ever released or you're not a real boy. Or something. Where these "people" apparently find the time to play and watch everything is a mystery to me.

Starfield isn't out yet.
When it comes out, weirdos will find out something WOKE to hate about it, and it will retrospectively be declared to have always been shit and nobody to have ever cared about it.
What if, hypothetically, there is something woke in Starfield? Or are you subscribing to the theory that woke-ness in computer games doesn't exist? If you don't and wokeness do exist in games, then logically, Starfield might end as one of such games. And if you do subscribe to the theory - perhaps I can convince you that Australia doesn't exist? I mean, people walking on their heads, that's preposterous!

BTW - I don't care about Starfield. It's a mainstream game AND a bethesda game at that. The last Bethesda game i played (for a few hours) was F3. The last mainstream one - Pathfinder 2 also for a very short time. It will be only good to shitpost. Just like BG3 is. Instead of BG3 I will be playing a good indie instead. Or shitposting.

What the fuck are you talking about?
My point is that I'll play Starfield, and judge it based on how compelling it is to play, and not based on how many gays there are in it. I wouldn't deny myself a fun game, in order to pretend my consooooomption of media in any way influences people I disagree with on politics. Which is what retards ITT are doing, for the most part.
Not playing a good game only hurts you, and nobody else. It pushes no political project, accomplishes no social goals, achieves no progress towards gassing the kikes or whatever you dream of.

Not playing a good game only hurts you

It doesn't hurt anyone. If people fucking animals in a game is not something a person wants to support/spend time on, then that is a good decision for them. This place is one of the last places, that has a sizeable userbase, where people can talk about these issues without getting banned. It seems like you would understand this by now. You seem like an ok guy to me. I am not sure if you are a homo or a zoophiliac or have a black fetish or something to defend this so emphatically. Are you english second language perhaps? I think something is missing though. If you are defending your own sexual preference without actually stating that, then I could somewhat understand why you are on such a crusade in various threads. Otherwise, something must be missing in translation.

Also, you seem to be fixating on homosexuality as the base concern people are upset about. But that tweet, posted above is not referenecing just homosexuality. The persons nickname "fiddlecub" is certainly not just about being gay.

This whole concern, for a good many people, is a lot more than just gay guys sucking on a dick. It's about being denied good looking straight girls, being denied games that don't have a wide range of degeneracy (zoophilia, lesibans, homosexuals, fetishizing minorities, pegging etc) No games featuring just normal bro type companions. No bro paladin on a crusade, who doesn't want fuck you. Why is there no male dwarf companion in BG3? One who has your back, who doesn't want to fuck you? How about having more than one normal, good looking girl, who is straight?

Anyways, I hope you can find sense in some of this.

Played BG3 for 20 hours and fucked 0 animals so far.
being denied good looking straight girls
Shadowheart is pretty hot
zoophilia, lesibans, homosexuals, fetishizing minorities, pegging etc.
I think the game is what you make of it. If you want to do these things then I guess you have the option otherwise it’s easy to avoid.
