Did Larian really destroy the legacy of Bakdurs Gate?
>>
Oh no, not the overrated RPG for millennials! I can't believe I couldn't just ignore a game made by a different studio based on a different edition and the current FR setting that, aside for sharing name, is basically unrelated to old FR.
>>
>>1623613
Whoa whoa you guys have this faggot too?
>>
>>1623648
You'd have a point if it was called something else, like Baldur's Gate: Mindscape or some shit. But it's called Baldur'a Gate 3. Very clearly a direct sequel which means they intend a strong relation.

Naw, but they're certainly destroying their own legacy.

You're thinking of trails.

And yet the plot is completely unrelated. They did it just from brand recognition and you guys should be mentally challenged to buy anything from WotC.

>>

Inane writing? Shitty characters? Basic bitch setting? Your choices not mattering? Butchered D&D?
No, it's all still there.
>>
>>1623656
Only the end game is unfinished currently, Swen said as much in a recent interview. Larian doesn't want to show too much in early access, that's why there will only be partial act 1 in it. Compare this to Owlcats WotR, where you have 4 acts out of 6, with the game being really rough and unfinished.

Owlcat is going to release a buggy mess for the second time? I thought the longer beta would have made them fix the game by now
>>
>>1623704
4 acts are in. The first 3 acts are already more polished than Kingmaker was at release. Admittedly that is not a high bar to pass. New beta drops tomorrow.
>>
>>1623687
>with the game being really rough and unfinished.
Wat, Wrath is already in way better shape now, than how was Kangmaker upon release.

It's common knowledge to anyone who touched the game.
>>
>>1623687
Is it Early Access or Paid Demo? They should show what they have.
>>
>>1623856
So not common knowledge because how many are in your beta, 200?
Compared to the millions in Baldur's Gate 3.
Pathetic.

>>
>>1623608
No, virtually nobody cares about this game and it has little to no impact on the gaming community at large. I doubt, in 5 years time, that most people will associate """3""" with the series any more than they do Dark Alliance.
>>
>>1624837
its too late anon you bing, google or ask jeeves 'Baldur's Gate' now and what shows up? all Larian baby
>>
>>1624862
Actually I got the EE made by those who are guilty of a number of crimes as the first result on google, then the wikipedia page for the series, then BG3 on steam
>>
>>1623672
???
who is that suppose to be?
>>
>>1624890
A character from Pillars of Eternity
>>
>>1623687
It's Owlcat. If you're smart and still want to play their game, you'll play it two years after it's released.
>>
>>1624910
With the reactivity owlcat are pushing in their game it is going to be broken for a long time
>>
>>1624927
Ouch but at least they aimed high. Would rather it be as memorable as Alpha Protocol than mediocre like Outer Worlds.
>>
>>1623648
Haha just kidding that was a bait post I made because I need to compensate for my penis(small)!

It's ok anon we all have our mental health struggles sometimes.
A real chad recognizes it and takes some time for himself if he's getting too agitated by video games

>>1623672
PoE is completely inferior to BG.
Combat is horrible because characters just get one shot if you don't abuse pausing, making utilizing the real time function impossible.

Baldur's gate 1 and 2 destroyed D&D legacy for many years.
RTWP is a awful
D&D is turn-BASED and must be Turn fucking BASED.

The only one and true Baldur's gate game for True D&D fan is BG3
>>
>>1625148
Kek, I'm saving that image.
>>
>>1623608
don't know about the content but not making it RT with P. already is a fuckup, this is just another of a series of Larian games.
>>
idk but the turn based combat doesnt jive with the bg series, big downgrade, this isnt divinity 3 its bg 3
>>
>>1625114
Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2 is ugly and old.
>>
>>1623687
>Larian doesn't want to show too much in early access
I assume this is bullshit, or otherwise they don't know what Early Access is. EA is supposed to update as additional parts of the game become release-ready.
>>
>>1623608
No, WotC did. BG3 would have probably been pretty good if Larian was given carte blanche instead of being restricted.
>>
>>1625476
That's all you got huh?
>>
>>1625562
Larian's shitty writing predates BG3 by a long time.
>>
>>1625564
No the combat is also absolute shit and the writing is lol random shit too with a wacky elf bad guy that has a deviant art vampire elf sister
>>
>>1625216
DnD is a turn based game though...
>>
>>1625720
but Baldur's Gate for PC isn't, it's a isometric view, real time with pause videogame "based" on ad&d edition 2.
>>
>>1625596
The writing isn't the problem.
>>
>>1625739
and nobody cares anon they want to see an adaptation of 5e not ad&d boomer shit
>>
>>1625767
>they
you mean... """they""" ?
>>
>>1625114
Play on normal if you're that bad at the game. There's no shame.
>>
>>1625530
who says?
>>
>>1623608
I'm gibin it the benefit of doubt until full release, but what i've played of the ea (early on, admittedly), didn't give me good vibes. And I liekd both og bg and dos, no bias. Something about the fights being so drawn out and yet feeling so empty really made it tedious.
>>
>>1625641
still better than your virgin vampire elf
>>
>>1626950
Seethe. The Baldur’s Gate 3 that you hoped and wished for back when you were young is gone. Larian is in charge now
>>
>>1623608
Yes. Game is basically Divinity OS3. Don't mind the lgqt+ and diverse cast, but the spells and combat feels as shitte as in Divinity.

Really have to wait for our Owlcat masters to save us again.
>>
>>1626959
>Really have to wait for our Owlcat masters to save us again.
kek i hope you’re ready to wait another 2 years after release to play their buggy slop

For the best or for the worst.I will wait 2 decades to judge it.

And Baldur's Gate is over all a video game inspired by Dnd rules.
>>
>>1626958
To be fair 5th edition deserves Larian.
>>
>>1623608
Yeah, they turned it into cuck shit like kingmaker did to pathfinder.
>>
>>1628131
There were no virgins in Baldur's Gate 2 either anon
>>
>>1623608
>legacy of baldur's gate
>a game that shoehorns you into playing a moralfag character while giving you the illusion of choice

Larian is infinitely better.
>>
>>1628133
There were no gay orcs in Baldur's Gate 2. Nor other video D&D video games. Or even in any D&D setting before PF. Forgotten Realms is canonically a cuckfest tho.
>>
>>1628133
>Aerie
tho tbf canonically you change that
>>
WotC sold out the Baldur's Gate brand to make really shitty action RPGs almost immediately after 2, dude.
>>
>>1623663
Very much related but proving it would spoil it. You don't like spoilers do you? Incase you do visit the bg3 thread here or look for the datamined stuff elsewhere.
>>
>>1628532
In pathfinder the orc is actually bisexual not gay
>>
>>1623608
BG 1/2 aren't that good. Even both NWN games have better campaigns, BG3 is already better than BG 1/2 and it's not even finished

kek bait fag
>>
>>1629836
Both NWN1 and 2 have better campaigns than either of the baldurs gate games. BG is by the the most overrated crpg series.

Why the fuck does every BG3 thread on this board feel like bait?
Every single time someone has to mention the word 'cuck'. Some autistic BG3 and Pathfinder anons have to start a shouting battle.
Fuck, this board is like /v/ nowadays.
>>
>>1624820
>>1630145
Neither is cuck game.
BG3 is a KEK'S game though & that's a hard fact. Notice the subtle difference.
