    The thing is, they are self deluded to the point of thinking that they are doing this great work in developing the baldurs gate brand... While fucking it up all the way with bugs, bad art and bad writing

    I really don't want to see Beamdog making BG3, but in FR universe becoming a god isn't that huge a deal. Especially such a weak god you be at the start of BG3. I'd really like to see Ziets' BG3.

    One of the possibilities for BG3 that Beamdog's mentioned was that it could be a whole new story line, no link to the Bhaal spawn saga.

    They should just make something new and exciting.

    Then why call it Baldur's Gate 3?

    Name recognition... The obvious answer. Ever heard of the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance name?

    Why remaster the BG games in the first place? Because they were hugely popular when they were released, and still are to this day. Perfect for a small amateur start-up to get a foothold in the industry.

    Uh, it was actually a rhetorical question, it's obvious they want to milk that cow to the last drop, even if their game is pure shit and doesn't have anything to do at all with the Bhaal spawn saga.

    I just wanted some of the resident retarded Beamdog apologists to come over and try to justify it.

    Oster calling them "museum curators"... Now I'm not as whiney as some people here are about every little change, but dumping BG2 kits and spells into IWDEE especially was just plain stupid. Also considering how bad their own writing has been this game will be worth playing just to laugh at whatever stupid shit they come up with.

    Loved the Video!

    Trent is a great guy, i love the EE Versions and the new NPC like Dorn or Neera are much better then Viconia or Edwin for example!

    I am dumbfounded.. so many questions..
    So like is this gonna be 2E / 3.5E or 5E ?
    How the hell did they get the rights to let Satan / Some Bankrupt Retard Publisher / WotC / Hasbro approve a pre-4E game?
    Are they riding the Obsidian / InXile coat tails and hoping to get some of the quick cheddar?

    Or Could this be..
    Show Spoiler
    :incline:
    ???

    EDIT:

    The more I think about this.. I am really worried they convinced the overlords of Hasbro/WotC that they can make this sequel / prequel really cheap using existing code and assets and it's gonna be a piece of shit.. I really hope I am wrong.. I am loving all these isometric TB / RtWP games that are making a return. Please Beamdog don't make some piece of shit filler game in the infinity engine.. license the Obsidian engine if you have to.

    Oster has BG posters on his wall and is wearing an IWD shirt... laying it on kind of heavy, huh?

    Also chuckled at DA:O and Hearthstone on his desktop.

    There was no way that this interquel would he anything other than 2.5e.

    Why would they risk alienating their entire base?

    I'm fairly sure there's going to be full BG1EE->BG1.5->BG2EE import feature as well. They can patch all three games to adjust the xp gains as necessary.

    I didn't realize Oster was still running this business from Edmonton. I should have a chat with him about the desecration of classics.
