  • the writing in this game is trash. literally like the writers never met a real person in their entire lives. all of the companions have the same personality, which is insufferable flaming asshole. every interaction with them is like interacting with a histrionic narcissist who thinks they are in some sort of theatre play, and this extends to side npcs as well. your relationships with your companions are based not on the choices you make but if the roll was successful or not? the other gimmicks are really trash as well.

  • Is the isometric view optional? It looks so unappealing, like an MMO or RPG from the early 2000s.

  • All I know is before you buy it, wait for it to official release. Don't spend your money on the open beta, of course it going to be JANK.

  • I agree. I've just done finishing 25hrs play time as cleric class. Yeah, it's got some wobbly interactive graphics at times, but hey, as the man said, it's early access. It doesn't take anything away from the gameplay for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Great work and keep it coming Larian.

  • I just can't stand the sci-fi look! It's supposed to be medieval. BG1 and BG2 really took me to that time in history. Bioware did some lovely games back in the day, this simply isn't Baldur's gate.

  • I want to play it but can’t support the thought of paying $60 for an unpolished 1/3 of a game. Micro transactions would be less offensive and that would be a deal breaker as well.

  • I really enjoyed the video. Very warm explanations with a very warm voice, and even though I wasn't convinced to go for the game (it's personal, nothing against your reasoning :-D) I just couldn't put the video down. THAT'S how well-made the video was. Great job, sir :-)

  • This is why I don't trust game journalists. When you spoke about the brain you could miss in the beginning, you don't need high jump to get up there. There is a VERY OBVIOUS ELEVATOR right in the middle of the room, literally the entire room is built around this elevator and its the only thing you can do in that room. Its not some secret.

  • I've done literally everything there is in early access at this point. Love the game. BUT Honestly annoyed that they have a mostly fleshed out relationship system that is almost finished when a ton of the quests aren't able to be finished. For $60 I would have preferred to be able to finish the quests available and mess around with relationships at launch. I understand its early access but $60 is $60.

    • I mean it kinda is. If you want a more BG experience play pillars of eternity or pathfinder. I won't pick this one up because i wasn't a huge fan of Divinity.

  • I'm 3 hours in playing it on a potatoes hooked to a toaster and I'm satisfied. Larian making a game set in Faerun is just gold to me. Worth the $60? The finished product will be I'm sure. So I'm not regretting the price but it is early access which can be scary. Just gotta hold on and pray they polish it into the gem it has the potential to become.

  • i strongly disagree with almost everything said in this video. 1 - all the chars look like people on Pornhub: early 20s, models, perfect looking. 2 - the dialogues - corny, full of speech-to-the-nation attitude. 3 - combat is super long because every 3rd shot is a miss 4 - u dont get to choose your companions classes so every game looks exactly the same

  • I find with BG3 I need to imagine that this isn't 'Baldur's Gate 3' but rather a fresh, new game set within the Forgotten Realms - e.g. how BG Dark Alliance was very different from BG 1 and 2. If you approach with this in mind, and you're a BG 1-2 player, you shouldn't be disappointed. If you do expect 'BG3', you're not really going to get the camp-ness, character development, conversation detail and 'beautiful ugliness' you're wanting.

  • They need to remove the throw. Items feature it brakes the game. I one shoted a CR 5 minotaur with a chest in which I stored a lot of heavy garbage items and used a strong hero to throw the chest on top of the minotaur (the heavier the chest the better) also the environment dmg from like fire totally destroyed my DnD experience. I hope they move away from a lot of Divinity mechanics and implement more DnD 5e mechanics. If this was the full game I would ask for a refund

  • I feel it's pretty dirty to call it Baldur's Gate 3 when it has nothing to do with the original stories, i was really looking forward to expanding on the Bhaalspawn story from BG2 which i still replay multiple times per year even now. Also no fan of 5e, it's very limited compared to 2e, particularly when it comes to items, but i guess they may have scope to improve on that compared to the WotC core books/source material. Lastly, not keen on no character rolling system, as a perennial power-player not having a natural 18 as my main stat is simply a gut punch, best thing about BG original series is you can use mods and editors to change the game quite dramatically in terms of difficulty, quests/story and NPC's. Of course it's early days but i haven't heard anything about a player created Mod'ing/addon system, would be great if Larian could implement that, it really helps with longevity for RPG games and creates a great fan community.

  • Larian didn't go with turn-based only because their previous games have been, but because roleplaying as in Dungeons & Dragons is turn based, the ruleset used for this game, the universe it's set in.

  • Soo...we just going to Overlook the fact that a studio has released a portion of the game at full price and said you'll have to wait a year to play the full thing? People really shouldn't be supporting this behavior from developers, encourages them to release buggy half baked products and charge full price.

  • I'm in love with this game. It's so darn fun! Yes, it's an unfinished EA game.. I am perfectly alright with this! There's so much to do in this first act! If the following acts are just as packed with amazing content, it'll be a worthwhile buy for sure. I've enjoyed what's out - but it isn't a full game. I'm wondering though.. I've read online that they won't be releasing story content over time - that this was all we get until release. If I'm wrong, I'm happy! If I'm right I'll only be a little disappointed. I've been waiting years and years for this, so another year isn't anything terrible.
