Every time, every fucking time I go to one of them "Hopes for the full release" thread, and one of the most upvoted posts is about fucking someone. Astarion is bad enough, but there's far more. "Let me romance Raphael", "Let me romance Halsin", "Let me romance Nere", there was even this one coombrain who wanted to romance Aradin, the racist guy who hates tieflings, because she loves bad boys. I just hope that when Dragon Age 4 releases, its fanbase will go back to their cesspit and leave BG3 alone.

Also, Kagha romance when?

I have unwatched the thread because Lords of the Rings' hobbits need more *Veteran* unicorn riders.

I just watched a youtube video about the game and one comment is bitching about it having turn based combat.

And also calling it Boulders Gate 3.

I think humanity had a nice run but it's over.

Some people on this very site were bitching about it too, because they wanted a RTWP game.
The real joke will be when divinity original sin 3 comes out and it's strictly real time. It'll still suck, of course, but it'll be extra funny for people without garbage taste in games.

I don't know if you've heard of them, but baldur's gate 1 and 2 actually weren't the exact same game as divinity original sin.

You know, most D&D CRPG adaptations since SSI are Turn Based. There are many things to criticize BG3 and Larian, being TB is not one of then.

I'm very into cock and ball torture
I just hope when Baldur's Gate 3 releases it's a challenging experience that won't make me regret it. That is all.

Perhaps so, but all prior Baldur's gate games and by extension infinity engine games (you know, the thing they're marketing off of to get people to buy this game) were real time with pause (OK I'm ignoring deadly alliance here but come on). If they called it "gold box 3" or "Literally anything but baldur's gate" you'd have a good point, but then if they did that nobody would complain about it being turn based, nor would they care that it exists.

I was so willing to accept turn based combat before that first horrid gameplay preview. But since everything else sucks too I am making a combo and crying over RTwP.

Bitter faggot. Your franchise is being fixed. Accept it.

Divine Divinity did one thing. Beyond Divinity played with some cute ideas. Ego Draconis did something else. Dragon Commander did something completely different. Original Sin revitalized your dying genre and allowed a fuckton of studios to thrive in the industry by making such games, Original Sin 2 led to one of the most acclaimed games ever made, and Baldur's Gate 3 is pushing CRPGs into AAA space. LARIAN! LARIAN! LARIAN!

There's nothing being fixed. If anything, the series is being ruined by Wizards as it the entire D&D franchise.

DOS1 was no more successful that PoE.

DOS2 is garbage. Crpgs were also already in the AAA space with KOTOR1, and DA:I. DOS3 is going to be garbage too.

its been years and codexers are still deep in the copemire over how successful DOS2 was

Here is Codex, DOS2 appears above freaking ToEE, Dark Sun : Shattered Lands, KCD, SW:Kotor, Dungeon Master, Ultima II(...) in the best RPG of all time. https://rpgcodex.net/article.php?id=11193

The problem is not Larian, is Larian cultism. People who refer to dos2 as "modern baldurs gate" and an "classic in depth rpg experience" yet they have no clue about what they are talking about.

RTwP is turn-based. Non-move actions still occur in initiative order.

It just takes out the immersion-breaking pen-and-paper necessities that are made obsolete by automating (and vastly speeding up) computation.

Pause spam is a UI issue. Games with an advance time button don’t have that unless you want the chaos.

DOS2 is not a modern Baldur's Gate.
DOS2 is not a classic, in-depth RPG experience (whatever the fuck this means, but I'll go ahead and you mean the overall gameplay experience of Infinity Engine games).

DOS2 is the upgrade.
