    Also "I like it, that's the way things should be. just... simple"

    These are the type of people larian caters to. Degenerates and dumbfucks. It's just unfortunate they dragged a good series into the middle of it. BG series is simply a tool for them to use and abuse.

    It's to be expected that more and more games will require it as time passes.

    I have my own reservations about BG3, but we don't know the plot, story etc. yet do we? In view of that I don't get how you can make this statement.

    Windows 7 is not spported anymore and Windows 8.1 market share is insignificant. It's much better to target W10 from the get go which allows you to use current and future W10 exclusive DX12 libraries.

    larian and swen.

    The tag was only given to me by a corrupt mod. It has nothing to do with me and is not indicative of anything. Nobody likes the person who tries to dismiss what someone is saying based off of a tag that was given as a joke. Don't be that guy.

    The 1050 ti releases can run it on Full-HD with everything set to medium at ~35-40fps minimum for an average of about 40-45 fps at stock clocks. As said, those are borderline Flight Simulator 2020 requirements Larian are currently listing. Technically, this is gonna be a 2021 game anyway. By that time an entire new generation of GPUs will be out. But they've been arguing that optimization is still a big thing -- this big in fact that it may delay the release yet another time.

    But Win 10 isn't the best thing in the world and "upgrading" to it will break who knows how many compatibilities with old games.

    If that's what you're into, then you're a lost cause.

    Plot and story isn't everything. We know plenty. If you looked at the game you would immediately recognize it as a larian product. Things they copied from dos2 over BG: 3d vs isometric. 4 vs 6 player party. origin characters are in. turn based. fire pools on the ground. and so many more. It's very easy for me to make the statement because it is written all over the game.

    and based off of larians past we can make plenty more predictions about the game.

    What do you mean? Baldur's Gate 3 showed about three-four hours of gameplay across their various streams. That's commendable and way, way more than most games do these days.

    Typical binary thinking. You assume I think plot and story are everything, and conversely you treat them as if they're nothing.

    You're pissed off about the gameplay system design choices, which is fine. But you can't say "it has nothing to do with BG" when you know pretty much nothing about the story.

    It has nothing to do with the bg series*

    *Barring any potential empty story references or cheap character re-emergences thrown in as an after thought, the game takes place many many years in the future. It's easy to connect things afterwards with a couple of words thrown in as an after thought, they would only be significant if parts of the games were built with these things in mind and were influenced by them.

    I play quite a bit of old shit and didn't have any problems on W10 (nothing beyond what was already a problem on W7, anyway). And yes, it is upgrading. The OS offers much better performance and features for game engines to utilize. No one's going to bother supporting end of life OS with ~6% market share when the most popular one is at almost 90% and is superior in every single way from the developer's standpoint.

    Ehh, don't worry. There is a chance that, while not guaranteed, the game will run on Win 7. I've had cases like that.

    We'll probably find half the characters from BG2 were petrified around the region or something, conveniently ready to be stone-to-fleshed for our titillation.

    It mostly depends on the libraries they use. Considering requirements list DX11, I would be surprised if the game didn't work on W7. DX12 requirement is what kills W7 support, but that will change with time as Valve has recently officially picked up a DX12->Vulkan wrapper project.

    Yeah, I know, the DEs of AoE1 and 2 run perfectly fine for me even though they "require" Win 10. That's why it's only a side eye and not a full-blown crusade against the whole of Belgium.

    I gotta say that even if the game turns out to be complete and utter dogshit (which is unlikely, I believe that at the very least it will have fun combat) I'm happy that it's being made cause it's causing so much butthurt it's entertaining to watch it unfold. It's like The Last of Us 2 of RPGs.

    Didn't expect such high system requirements, with a 1050ti and 8GB ram I can play doom eternal at solid framerate (albeit at minimum).
    Anyway I hope the story is not too over the top, sometimes simple is better.

    The game starts with the main character captured by mind flayers and thrown into the midst of the blood war between devils and demons in hell. I think we can safely say that the "not too over the top" ship has already sailed.

    It's actually very likely.

    You're all harbingers of decline and I am disgusted by you.

    Larian is promising so much I can't help but get hyped. It all comes down to the story, the quality of writing, reactivity and C&C.

    From what they've shown so far, mechanically the game is definitely going to deliver.

    Could this really be the BG3 we've been dreaming about for two decades?

    The bigger the promise, the greater the fall.
    I can't wait until the codex consensus comes to the only possible conclusion.
    Just so that I can write
