    Honestly, I don't give a rat's ass about what Swen acknowledges or doesn't acknowledge.

    The same guy said he doesn't agree and is very proud of their armor system in response to the Codex review calling him out on how shit it was. He only flip-flopped recently.

    Swen will say anything.

    I wonder if it might be a bit like Divinity 2 Ego Draconis? More action oriented and not turn based or RTwP. Though I have no idea how a party system could work there.

    I haven't read all of this thread, but I've read a lot of it, and I still haven't seen anyone claiming such. I feel like you're battling an idea that isn't expressed here. If your general conceit is that there is a problem with mainstream acceptance of D&D mechanics, that may frame your barbs in a way that makes more sense to us. As it is now, it appears you're tilting at windmills.

    So we're getting Dragon's Dogma & Dragon Age Origins at the same time in the sam game. Optimistic.

    D&D 5E is the best version of the rules ever published, so yeah, this being D&D 5E of all things is a good reason to be excited.

    The level of autistic butthurt in this thread based on vague comments and nothing else is fucking unreal. I still see no reason to expect anything other than BG DnD 5e in Larians DoS 2 engine, the camera surprise is that it's a movable 3d camera as in those games and not fixed isometric as in the first two BGs.
    Larian have never had the success they have had with the last two games before and it really makes zero sense for them to now adapt it into a witcher like experience when the setting screams out for more of the same.

    As for writing? RIP.

    So...basically, you are applauding the fact that in every game a bunch of shit is introduced and in a subsequent game even more shit is introduced BUT Swen is sorry for the earlier shit.... :/

    Another E3 interview, is less interesting than other bunch regarding BG3: https://wccftech.com/larian-studios-interview-innovating-baldurs-gate-3/

    Actually part about Swen's thoughts (new consoles ["people have SSDs in their PCs already" :cool:], hope for streaming platform and skepticism towards subscriptions) on the industry are more interesting.

    Everyone who posts anything negative in this thread, based on how little we know about the game, is a child molesting cuck.

    I'm afraid, this makes you a "child molesting cuck".

    Swen wouldn't call camera a surprise if the camera was like in D:OS. This is what most people expect.

    A surprise would be a viewpoint that they haven't done before, like first person.

    Biowarian third person wouldn't be a surprise but I imagine that's what they're going for.

    For all we know Swen might believe fans of the original games expect BG3 to have pre-rendered 2D backgrounds and that they'd be surprised by the 3D rotatable camera.

    the combat in andromeda is honestly pretty fun
    I wish there were more squad-based RPGs where you don't directly control the party AI.

    I loved Divinity 1 and 2 as Action RPGs so I'd take another from Larian. Now coupled with party members? Sure, why not?

    I never expected CRPG plebs to understand much about good tabletop rule design but the amount of dislike for 5E is frankly shocking. Have you 3.5 cavemen even actually read all three 5E core books, or is this another case of the Codex being ill-informed and tossing worthless opinions with pomp and authority?

    More like after 4th Ed, sane, thinking and logical people have put fucktards of the coast in the "boycott with prejudice" bin, so fuck your 5th Ed in the eye socket, bitch!

    So, in short, exactly as I expected, nobody hating on it has even the faintest idea why they're hating it and why it's actually good. Codex never disappoints! +M
