    Same, but solasta was more enjoyable than those so far. BG3 may beat it if it ever get finished and they do something else than cosplaying parties or baiting nerds with pretty girls to sell them xxl t-shirts.

    Never rolled fem char, so how the heck should I know? The dude just jumps MC at sleep and tries to suck off (blood allegedly)...also mannerism. Also "female" players.

    Maybe it's just me, but Astarion reminds me of Malcolm from Legend of Kyrandia series:

    Steam requirements list that this game needs 150GB of hard drive space. Is that true?

    I also installed some games with long loading times on C: because that was the only SSD I had. I have another one now and it isn't as cramped ;d

    Now all you have to remember on release day is to wait at least 4 months for you not to become an unwilling & unpaid beta-tester and all your effort to insulate yourself not to be in vain.

    yes, that bug on release of Divinity 2 where there was a memory leak and everyone's game crashed speaks volumes on the quality of their testing and gives us every reason to trust them to... deliver.

    My interest in BG 3 at this point is purely mathematical.
    D:OS2 had a staggering success at the first Beta

    But only ~1/3 of Beta players were back for a full release.

    BG 3 performed twice worse, despite all its lustre, big name and full VA:

    So now I am very curious if Swen's rabid advertising and press coverage will turn its release into biggest RPG event of the last decade, or the audience will be fed up with it long before the game is complete and it will repeat D:OS 2 fate - important, but "not a Skyrim".

    There are numbers for 2016 but it looks like some kind of limited access for a select few (backers?)

    nope, it was full EA. I know because I bought it on Steam in EA.
    more people might have been avoiding EA games at the time

    This is another one of these recurring discussion topics: Person A comes up with the idea that Larian will run out of money or won't sell any copies after early access. Person B corrects him by pointing at Larian's current and past financial success or points out how many more copies DOS1/2 sold after early access. Person A turns around and goes 'lololol who cares about sales, anybody who brings up sales is decline', nevermind that he brought it up in the first place and is in fact the biggest decline around. We really should make an index of this crap.

    Honestly, I came into this topic due to curiosity about new location and content. But everyone here only discuss Bugfinder and gay vampire.
    (Half of the people are still downloading 60GB monstrosity of the patch probably...)

    Your numbers are completely off.
    As far as Early Access builds go, BG3 is bigger than DOS 2 ever was by orders of magnitude.
