    If it's this easy to convince idiots to buy a game then it makes sense that Larian is a successful company.

    If you're not interested in a crpg based on a tabletop rpg because of the inherent limitations of a game system designed to be manageable without a computer, why do you even care about BG3? It is clearly not the game for you.

    TBH I would've been happy if the answer had been just "Youtube".

    Thank you, Harthwain.

    I kinda didn't like the opening cinematic. It betrays a lack of subtlety and ability to hold themselves back.

    Because there is a % of people that think to be D&D fans and they think the games should be made for them(while at the same time declaring they don’t buy their product), instead wotc is focussing on the actual fans of D&D and attract new people in the hobby.

    Me, I never thought a battle between dragons and a mindflayer ship could look so boring. I think it's the music, where it should be epic and make me want to play it just puts me to sleep.

    Sometimes it just seems like you people are just looking for a reason to be angry. Like you start at hate then find reasons to justify it instead of being like a rational person and hating it because of the reasons. A dragon battle made you fall asleep? Really? That trailer opening literally took a dedicated team 7 months to make. I think a team of professionals know what makes an opening a little better than you people do.

    This thread is what happens when you let RTwP dumbfucks believe that their opinion on RPGs has any sort of value.

    The intro should've stopped after the last tadpole was inserted.
    What happened after is the correspondent of "purple prose" in visual form. It's exorbitant shit that is congruent with the philosophy ,
    Show Spoiler
    .

    That kind of action packed scenes are best used during the climax of the game, where the player is emotionally invested, knows the background, knows at what the fuck he's looking at etc.

    But you are right. The professionals know what the unwashed uncultured masses want - quick gratification via bombastic visuals galore.
    They want the hot chick to slurply suck their dick on the first date, even before the first meal course.


    Below we have another team of professionals that know what would make Larian a little better on the revenue front.

    So i guess that Jump does exist in D&D 5e but you need to plan your character to have it.

    Why plan it when you can just infect your self with a radioactive ilithid tadpole and become octopus man?
