    Looks like we've found the first EA bug. "Fireball cleric cannot shoot fireballs."

    Is anyone else giddy with excitement for this to fail hard like all the other nostalgia driven cash grabs before?

    It has COOP and 5E, normies and scrublors will likely love it, we already have some fags like that in this very thread. I loath the game but it'll likely do super well, that's the point of the trashy dev choice and the sellout use of the good BG name.

    it doesn't seem anything like a nostalgia driven cashgrab to me.
    Also, most of them didn't fail. DAO was marketed as a spiritual successor to BG2 and did very well.

    I'd actually prefer it to be a good game.

    Every fantasy game ever.
    I'm letting it be known that I am going into this game ready to despise it and will be biased and cruelly unfair to it.

    I am going to light this cocksucka' up. There is no way I will like it. Even if I like something in it, I'll twist it in a way to not like it. I can't wait. I am actually going to pay money, real world currency, just so I can tell you all how much I hate this game. "Crazy," you think. "Why would anybody do that?" Because I want to, because I need to.

    Oooh, release it Swen, I'm ready for it! My legs are shaking in anticipation. GIVE IT TO ME. I wanna tear this ass UP.

    Everybody's arguing about systems and I'm over here like... just about anything is an improvement over DOS2's "everything on fire magic armor" bullshit.

    3.5e, 4e, 5e, whatever.
