I had such a crush on BG2 Viconia.  Ultimate bad girl.

I bought Baldur's Gate 3 over 2 years ago.
It's still not released.

I absolutely loved Baldur's Gate.  Replayed both titles recently, as well as NWN.  Divinity: Original Sin fkkn rocked.  Very, very good job on those, Larian, no kidding.  I was excited to hear that they got the license to make the third Baldur's Gate title.

But I've had BG3 Early Access on my Steam wishlist for nigh on two years now and it hasn't gone on sale once.

I refuse to pay full AAA price for "Early Access" anything.  Even Baldur's Gate 3.  Even Baldur's Gate 3 made by Larian.

Fark you, I'm not paying to beta test anything.  You should fkkn pay me.

Wizards knows what its players want. From the "Space Hamster" entry in Boo's Astral Menagerie:

Actions
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 piercing damage.
Go for the Eyes (Recharge 6). Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 8 (1d6 + 5) piercing damage, and the target must succeed on a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw or be blinded until the start of the hamster's next turn.

Hamsters have been know to take down opponents many times larger than themselves. Yeah.

The Baldur's Gate series are my favorite games ever. And this one is going to tank because they're trying to Star Citizen this shiat like video game scientology.

Think I'll go play one of the Pathfinder games, they're both farking great.

It's been awhile in beta sure, because Covid.  Like twenty major films and no idea how many games and companies folded due to lockdown, I dunno why people forget this and act like it's a war crime. We got Maverick eventually and it was great, we'll get BG3 eventually and it'll be great too.

Forums are unreadable these days though, just all toxic fandom and people screaming about delays like they're getting scammed for not owning something yet.  JFC gamers went from some of the best people I knew in the 1980s to the absolute worst today.

Are they trying to be Star Citizen, or are they trying to NOT be Cyberpunk 2077?

I'm finishing up some achievements on Solasta, then I think I will play the Divinty games. I have never played those.

Then you're probably a farking idiot. Both for "fearing things will be 'woke'" and for using talking like a zoomer.

Yeah, not really looking forward to a dumbed down Baldur's Gate with only four party members. For the life of me, I can't figure out why such a stupid decision was made.

I'm sure an executive-level decision was made to personally piss you off, is the only reason that occurs to me.  They're all jealous of your amazing ideas in game theory and the correctness of all you stand for, and thus must tear you down in order to justify shining their lesser lights upon gamers.

That's usually the maximum number of players that can reliably make any D&D game I DM. If it was more realistic, they'd have a party of six, but d4 of them, chosen at random, are "at the bar" or "back on the boat" every time you load the game up.

How about six?
Six is good. You got a problem with six?

I've played through what's available so far multiple times. It's great.

/Still have the disks, boxes, collectables, cloth maps and etc from BG1, BG2 and IWD.

I passed on early access. I feared that watching the sausage get made would ruin it. I guess that gave me more patience. It is on my Steam wishlist too and I'm looking forward to its completion.

I just came across my hand written item list I used to hack the save files to give my characters items.  Nothing is funnier than going into a bar and using a scroll of Summon Nishruu (SCRL8B). Gate (SCRL9N) was fun too.

Viconia has been my Warcraft main for 18 years (although the just-released xpac 'released' me from playing indefinitely).  I had a second account with a paladin "Lolth" which made me laugh because Viconia broke away from worshipping Lolth, but the "LOL" in the name triggered a forced rename.

I do like how the magic blast went for Stone Minsc's eyes.

/got a nice chill like the first time I saw the intro to OG Baldur's Gate
//also have it on my Steam Wishlist
///also have not purchased it yet because it hasn't been on sale

Wake me when they release more than the first act... of 3. 

This is getting into Shroud of the Avatar levels of stupid at this point.
 
2022-12-06 7:37:56 PM  
"Rejoice" at what, subby? Another round of early-access hype? Nah, I'll pass, thanks.

It's been more than two years now since its early access debut - a debut that charged full price, but delivered alpha demo bullshiat.

Sometimes one of them will show up halfway through your playing session but will be really apologetic and will pay for the pizza to make up for it.

The original games had 6. Are you saying the new devs aren't as talented as the old ones, they can't figure out how to allow 2 more characters?

FF was the less sophisticated BG, that had to be restricted due to console limitations.

In other words, it was a console peasant compared to a PC master.
