We're at hotfix # twenty FUCKING two now.

This is why Larian isn't doing BG4. This project was too big for them and they want to go back to drinking Jupiler's.
I expect their next game to be much smaller.

Here's what I expect of them: right now they're the vain CDPR with their Witcher 3, thinking too highly of themselves. Come next game, they'll release Cybergunk and will be shocked by how much shit can be poured on their heads. All the faggotry won't save them.

In terms of profits, Cyberpunk was hugely successful.

It tanked CDP stock value, it's half of it was before the hype speculation kicked in, and there was horrible inflation in the meantime so it's even worse than the nominal numbers show. So not successful enough.

Although granted Larian is privately owned so company value as perceived by jews, gamblers and assorted parasites isn't an issue by itself, but they did get funding for BG3 from banks or some other loans IIRC, so getting overconfident high on their own farts and producing a dud can be a problem to getting funding in the future. And unlike CDP they don't have GOG as a cushion for credit rating drops.

They could dominate WOTC with just a decent Adventure toolkit. Or they can flop not supporting mods enough like Bannerlord.

They generated enough cash flow to keep the company running with multiple projects in development. That's widely more successful than most game development companies. We'll see once the next slate of CD Project games comes out whether the loss of customer trust will have had as much of an impact as everyone assumes.

Some screenshots of my playthrough.

A ball of fire burns characters in the water and sets the underwater surface on fire. I kited this ball here hoping for environmental interaction, but I was hoping for too much.

Shitty formulaic attempts at humor.
A typical "Quest: kill this guy! not only is he a mass murderer, but also his puns are terrible"
It's an inappropriate, dismissive self-sabotage of the original material. Pervasive in all modern western games.

Choice and consequence: not a single answer here says "yes":

Unfixed bugs in dialogues in critical path 7 months after release. Saw at least a dozen such cases:

Leafing through the artbook. Shadowheart used to look beautiful in concept art before someone intentionally made her ugly.

Astarion didn't look like a fag, until someone decided to make him into one:

Same with Gale:

I had to kill them all because of the agenda.

Karlach used to look like a white woman originally:

Swen: "ESG called, make her POC"
Artist:

Swen: "Jesus fuck, a black woman with a teeth necklace like an African cannibal, are you trying to get us cancelled? Make her Asian"
Thus Asian Karlach went into the game.

Halsin didn't have that faggot twinkle in his eyes originally, looked like Brendan Gleeson:

Raphael looked like a proper devil

I'm gonna cry, Minthara didn't look like a trap, but a normal woman

Other than injecting poz, all other characters were implemented more or less like they were conceived, no serious changes.
It really shows you that the agenda dick was injected between BG's ass cheeks at a specific stage in development.

Another sad loss is there was going to be a world map:
dc2c0d64b76fea9e0a6e1bde0ae75c2c.jpg

It would almost seem like the game started going to shit when WotC became more and more involved in the game's development by sending Mike Mearls over to suck Swen's cock.

You know that WotC can't have a game be based because of all the propaganda they spew on a daily basis both in and out of the context of their games.

Steve gets a Kidney but I don't even get a tag.
All of these attempts at writing in modern games reminds me of those scenes in Battlestar Galactica where the 12 cylon were trying to be human. Except they're retarded.
