    In before apologist saying that the beta area is the worst are of the game, only to showcase stuff and avoid spoilers, the full game is 1000 times better and will blow your mind.

    Actually, it's good that you're expecting something like the Prison Demo.

    Low expectations mean the final result will blow your mind. :cool:

    According to Brother None it was simply the most polished area. So maybe we're for something slightly better than shit!

    That was some serious backpedal from the original statement. But well PR agents gotta do their job.

    You're gonna play an isometric RPG you haven't played before. With possibly good writing and witty humour. A year ago I thought this would never happen. So you better enjoy yourself

    So can we agree to not post beta shit in the main thread for those of us that don't want to see it?

    Yes, now that I'm a moderator this will be stringently enforced.

    Some of the comments below the update are ... interesting to say the least.
    For example I never knew there was a RTwP crowd actually prefering that system over either TB or realtime.
    :retarded:
    Never witnessed a flame war discussion that wasn't just another round of RTwP apologists vs. TB purists.
    In these discussions it always seemed like the RTwP folks were just butthurt because some other autists people said bad things about their favorite game.
    I honestly never cared if other people liked BG2 as much as I do, and I don't care if they enjoy the combat (I do, that's enough for me).
    But it certainly is frantic and confusing (especially with all those spell triggers and sequencers) as hell and being able to run away from an AoE is my favorite cheese "tactic".
    Boggles my mind that there are people who actually prefer that system over TB, especially when the devs emphasize that they don't want to include trash mobs (and even these can be fun in a TB game if the mechanics are fun).

    tl;dr
    People are dumb.
    :patriot:

    Maybe you just need to kill yourself and get it over with?

    Of course, because with Sawyer at the helm it will not have anything as gamebreaking as the KOTC crafting so it will be better by default. :roll:
