    I want to know about ITEMS. Is the loot hand placed? Is it all generic RNG trash? How good are the uniques?

    I live in the middle of the woods in a rural area and have fiber. USA has some of the fastest home internet in the world -- which is impressive considering how spread out the country is.

    The more we delay getting to that part, the more we delay the inevitable moment when we realize the decline we are about to witness. It's a form of self-defense or self-defense mechanism. Won't last long.

    Geez GOG download is 60 GB ish for the installer.

    Probably 1 whole day just to download this using SEA internet (probably more as I need the internet for work as well, WFH and all).

    If no one who is playing the game is talking about it here, that must be a good thing, right? Too busy having fun?

    Why do they insist on making every animation so retardedly clownish? I don't get it, did they play any of the previous BG games?

    Decided to watch some stream a bit, first thing i see is the main character doing some retarded stretching exercise like mr. Bean.

    Why?

    Grab the Codex by the pussy Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    Only finished the intro since I had to go to bed.
    Encouters were pretty easy, only one type of enemy (there are others but fighting them isn't mandatory) also I felt the area was pretty generous with powerful scrolls and healing spots. I suppose it's to make people more fimiliar with the rules and not throw so much at them at once. However, I kinda feel D:OS2 entry had more difficulty but yeah part of that was just because the number of enemies but yeah BG3 still felt more enjoyable.
    Also, doesn't switching weapons cost an action or maybe a bonus? Or you can do it freely? since it looks like the game allow you to do it freely however I didn't try that while engaged. The DM that I used to play with allowed us to do it freely most of the times so I have no idea what's the stance on that.

    Also, production values are really impressive for a top down rpg, I like the animations for sneaking or running or just idling, though I always wonder if it's worth it.
    I'm not sure if I'm having idea on what's going on with the story but the general atmosphere is great.

    Holy fuck. Apparently the GAMEPLAY in Baldur's Gate 3 is the last thing the Codex wants to talk about today.

    After playing this garbage for 45 minutes I can safely say it's a massive disappointment. It feels a lot like DoS 2 except it's much worse.
