It's a sign of the times that I'd be more hyped if this were based on Critical Role campaign 1 lore than Baldurs Gate lore.

Also I remain unhyped - since I really didn't like the gameplay demo they showed. So many things that made it not DnD 5e and rather DOS 3.0, nothing wrong with that, but I want DOS 3 more than I want a DOS 3 that looks like Baldurs Gate

This is exactly what I got from the video... glad I'm not alone.

Same here. The demo had DOS all over it. And since it's both a high fantasy setting, they really have to get out of their way to convince me I'm playing a Forgotten Realms game and not another DOS.
Yep, didnt feel like Forgotten Realms/Faerun one bit.

You know its entirely possible that Minsc will be in BG3, as it's apparently set about a hundred years or so after the events of BG2. Minsc and Boo were petrified at one point and placed in the market square of Baldur's Gate - known as The Wide. Over time the statue become known as the Beloved Ranger, until about 70 years after its 'construction' a wild magic surge went off nearby and dispelled the petrification.

Also from the wiki:
This scroll cannot be used to learn the 6th-level wizard spell.
This scroll can be bought in almost every temple throughout the Sword Coast.

Just amazing how much nonsense is being spread. Instead of believing their own eyes and ears, which doesn't sync with reality, they'd prefer to believe there are vast conspiracies across the planet involving millions of people coordinating thousands of stories at once so that the media can control us. "These media companies are all lying to you! The truth is being told by a high school drop out on Youtube!" they scream. "Can you provide any evidence these news stories are fake?" "Um...gotta go!"

The lies and left out facts of the MSM is the reason these people have become so numerous. And thats why you shouldnt blame those people, but the MSM. Realizing that they are literally lying every day is believing your own eyes and ears.

Way too far out. After all this bullshit they'll want money sooner than later. Besides, it's been 7 years since V. It'll be out next year.

And it'll be filled with MTs with the SP as an afterthought.
GTA5 SP content after launch was a joke.

You are out of your mind. Who cares about the online microtransactions? You can completely ignore that side of it and still the offline content in GTA5 dwarfs 99% of other games, just as its predecessors did in their time. They never made any promises about post-launch SP content, that was always just wishful thinking from the fans, same as how they now clamor for an RDR1 campaign add-on for RDR2. That doesn't take away from the massive amount of big budget action-adventure they gave you for $60... I thought people who don't like microtransactions WANT the entire, complete game to be included in that one-time purchase?
I recently played SP again. Its really not that much content. I spent much more time in other open world games. I mean its a really awesome story, and I really enjoy playing it, but its really not that long.

The online content is huge, though. It takes you literally thousands of hours to unlock/buy everything, unless you spend real $$$. And thats what they are making so much money with. Microtransactions. Selling ingame money for real money.

The biggest problems of that game are cheaters, online load times, not having dedicated servers (which also affects cheaters and load times massively) and the horrible and non-uniform controls and UI design.

And as we saw in RDR2 (incl. Online), they dont give a shit about any of those problems. Its like they just reskinned GTA5.

Yeah, horrible, but what happened there?
The game has bots now? They implemented them, or are they China bots farming?
Im also (not really) surprised that this game still has the stutters from the beta version (the alpha version didnt have them).

Tried it again recently, and even though I have almost 100 hours played before, I died in 30 minutes due to sickness and hunger.
I quit playing before because the game takes too much attention to finding food and water and staying healthy, in a very unrealistic manner (even rain can make you dead-sick in a few seconds and you can go from a full belly to starvation in just a few hours).
And now they have made it much worse.
Uninstalled it very quickly again.

DOOM Eternal. Disappointment of 2020.
Not really expecting much from Bethesda anymore. Never have actually. Not even in the 90s.
So It wasnt a disappointment for me.
I mean, its sad seeing Doom in a state like this, yes, but I am actually getting used to seeing good IPs being raped. It has just become too common.

Sorry to go against the grain, but most of us are old school gamers and these games just aren't for us anymore. Back in the day we had Tomb Raider, Doom, Quake, Duke Nukem, SimCity, Xwing, etc etc etc.

This is this generations version of Team Fortress 1 or 2/Rainbow Six/etc. Not for us, not for us "to get".
Wrong. I still like a lot of games if they are well made and something new. I even started to like platformers recently, after playing the Ori games.
I played Fortnite and Apex Legends, and liked them more or less (hated the building in Fortnite though). Loved PUBG, until I realized how bad it is from a technical standpoint.
But after the 12th clone, or hybrid of putting 2 successful games together, I am getting bored, sorry.

I know back when I was younger I often imagined how games will look like in the future, how advanced they are, how many different things you can do, how real they are, because many games hinted at that kind of future, espeicially when first playing games like Ultima Online, EverQuest, Operation Flashpoint, Tribes, etc. Nothing came true of that. Nobody is taking risks anymore. Not even the multibillion dollar corporations. And when they take a risk, then everyone told them beforehand that it would fail, and it does.
And when indies try something new, it either gets bought up by the big ones or their success makes them greedy and go the microtransactions route.

The mobile game sector shows perfectly whats wrong with gaming. They even use templates for new games. Essentially only changing the skin. And its been coming to the PC and console sector as well.

All of these games look exactly the same to me. It's like someone said to a bunch of 17 year old artists, "Just go wild making a bunch of random and generic art assets - we'll shove them an equally generic looking shooter."
Youre not the only one. Creativity is dying, at least in the mainstream or where mainstream is the goal. No wonder when political correctness is dictating your every thought.

Both, unfortunately.

Also, damage control got a lot of ass kissing from redditors, making Bethesda sound like the second coming of Jesus. Oh sure, devs didn't know what they were doing or didn't test the changes on Linsux (Forgive me Burrito, I have sinned).

Remuvo Denuvo.
Since when is Reddit not ass kissing?
It has pretty much become the PR mouthpiece of corporations.

Wait, so you can create value by focusing on making great games instead of exploiting gamers through loot boxes and microtransactions???

And without DRM?!?! HERESY!

Who would've thought! /s

Don't forget, making literally the best game ever made. And they're about to do it again.

Fuck you Epic, Ubi, EA, and Bethesda. CDPR is the only good publisher left.

The best RPG yes, at least this decade, the best GAME... well that is debatable.

Not even that. To me Kingdom Come: Deliverance is much better.
I dont like their model with DLC, but its still a much better game.

I like these games but I hate their story telling. It's broken and isn't coherent. If you watched a movie like this you'd say it's the biggest piece of shit.

None of you guys can tell me the story of bloodborne without watching youtubes and such. I put 180 hours into bloodborne and still cannot tell you much more than Some dude got stuck in the "Dream" world trying to contact gods for the all powerful blood.

Souls games are even more nebulous. Requiring you to read every item and interpret the area around it to try and piece together a story.

If the story was actually good and coherent, you wouldn't have a bunch of youtubers trying to come up with STORY THEORY videos.

When a story is well told, then I want to play that game, even if I dislike the gameplay. Games without story or at least extremely well made atmosphere, which tells the story on itself, were never my thing. So I never understood why people love Dark Souls so much. I played DS3 once, didnt know what I am doing, where I am, what I am supposed to do, why I am supposed to do it, and uninstalled it after a few minutes.

But no danger in doing things manually, as long as you know what you are doing, etc.
Meh. A lot of cleaners are very invasive, but CCleaner is extremely careful, not to say superficial.
Comparing CCleaner to other registry cleaners is like comparing a skin peeling to heart surgery.
