    They had to purge a number of threads from the Steam forums because the spergs over there can't keep their complaints and demands contained to a single thread.

    https://steamcommunity.com/app/1086940/discussions/
    Even now most of the threads are just people stating that they won't buy the game if something specific is/isn't included.

    I'm betting more on DA:I style combat, rather than Twitcher. Or, you know, you'll bind 3 spells to your controller like the Witcher signs and that's going to be your Wizard. And either you'll indirectly control other party members, alla Mass Effect, or they'll come with their own controller bindings depending on class. The thing is, though, this is far too complicated for most people, having to remember which button on the controller does what on all the party members would be seen as too much and thinking about it would detract from the action. That's why I'm suspecting more DA:I or indirect control of party members.

    My point is that every possibility is shit.

    Or you bind different schools/levels of magic to different buttons that bring up radial menus that allow you to choose the spell you want to use with the stick. Kind of like the Witcher menues only you get multiple ones.

    It's probably way too much to expect but I really hope they were inspired by Horizon Zero Dawn's combat!!! You could maybe even do something like Aloy's blast sling just being a fireball spell for wizards! Tho you could only probably have 1 or 2 other characters in your party (like when you fight Redmaw with Talanah) before combat got too easy instead of like the 5 in Deadfire :)

    No budget to make AAA games. No publisher support. The project ends before it starts. Result: Epic fail.
    The game must be isometric..

    Well more like 7 mages would be possible which is basically might and magic but you can split your party to do things like flanking

    Well, at least seeing how low this game can go is going to be fun. They did say we are going to witness things we've never seen before.

    Isn't Bhaal just referred to as an entity already? Surely they'll see no need to fix something that isn't broken.

    I don't read Nazi: can anyone translate?. I haven't really been following this thread for the past 10 pages or so - have I missed anything? People seem somewhat more agitated than usual.

    I don't see what the problem with D: OS is. The first game only had the terrible MMO loot and the tone as strikes against it, and Swen Vincke is already on record in multiple interviews that the tone of BG III is set by the trailer -- i.e. it will be quite a bit darker.

    To a decent first game D: OS 2 added the terrible armor system which Vincke has already acknowledged as a design misstep.

    I can see how D: OS 2 can repel more discerning players due to the armor system but one's autism would need to far exceed mine to genuinely claim D: OS 1 as an outright bad game.

    There are many reasons to be skeptical of BG III but being similar to D: OS ranks low among that list.

    It's more or less just stuff we already know from the numerous other interviews.

    Fan criticism and feedback from the community are important to Larian - but central gameplay elements such as the combat system shouldn't see changes. (in the sense that they aren't expected to change)

    For the first time [in this series], the camera angle of Baldur's Gate 3 might not be classically isometric.

    These are more accurate translations. The others are fine in their meaning.

    We are kinda like the Inquisition, we are discussing possible ways in which Larian can be heretical and how much they should and will be punished for it.

    We need not know where a castle is nor the nature of it's fortifications before we draw up a thousand different contingency plans to lay siege to it.

    So, everyone agrees it's gonna be a Oculus Rift exclusive turn-based first person shooter with compulsory gay romances (like you can't finish the game if you don't homo romance) and the soundtrack composed by Josh Sawyer?
