    People actually listen to the questgivers in that game? I thought it was about clearing the same groups of trash mobs 1000 times until you got that epic rare charm.

    Imagine BG3 as reboot of the series. Start from a blank slate. Forget what you know Auraculum .

    This gif will be codexers 2 weeks after launch. It'll be good but not perfect. Better than expected.

    You have officially reached the level beyond full retard.
    There are now no words in human language to properly describe what a ludicrous retarded imbecile of incredible proportions you are. You are now in the plated retardation territory.

    Murder in Baldurs gate was a part of the quotes i gave you, you ludicrous brain damaged dumbfuck.
    Not to mention the most obvious thing that another poster already mentioned, since Bhaal is alive and back - there cannot be anymore bhaalspawn...

    The results are final:

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]



    err... i said several months ago you are a retarded cretin who lives in his own hallucinations. You are literally not capable of understanding reality.
    I honestly have no fucking idea what youre talking about, and in fact - as can be seen in my post history - i always hated VTMB.
    I couldnt care less what a complete absurd dumbfuck like you could say about any game or mechanics or whatever else. Its just that your specific stupidity and retardation are insults for the whole human race.

    Just... fuck off.

    No, it'll be great sequel-reboot like BLade Runner 2049.
    Force Awakens was fan service of New hope.
    Swen doesn't look in the past. He makes big leaps forward.

    I've never watched the super old Star Wars so it didn't feel like fanservice to me :)

    There's one thing I hope for with the release of this game. That it will finally spawn an adventure-making community. Larian was shipping games with world editors for quite some time. But since their games were kinda niche it never picked off.
    Neverwinter Nights modules were great despite the fact that the game itself was really mediocre, but since then there was nothing that could replace it besides maybe quest mods for Bethesda games. But they were never so creative and varried as NVN ones.

    I doubt it'll happen even though I'd want it very much. To have a big community you need normies, and Kingmaker didn't attract much of them. Baldu's Gate is a brand name. I know many people who don't really play games at all but know BG and replayed it to death. Including one buddy of mine who quit playing games like 10 years ago, but bought Siege of Dragonspear when it came out simply because it was called Baldur's Gate.

    Or you could just be attributing competence to a place where ther is only ignorance and talent-less ineptitude. ;)

    They make a game that is called Baldurs Gate 3 that won't play like Baldurs Gate, won't look like Baldurs Gate and doesn't even continue the story of Baldurs Gate. - What?

    So Baldurs Gate 3 is just a scheme to make people buy a 50$ book? Because you won't understand the story without it.

    Anyway do I understand Mearl's drivel correctly that they rewrote the Bhaalspawn story again.

    I'm pretty sure it won't be necessary.
