No DLC plans is music to my ears. I was going to buy the complete version on sale but now it looks like I will only have to wait for a sale of the release version. If they drop the price during the xmas sale I will likely reward them with an early buy for no DLC milking.

I don't understand. You're going to reward them for not producing additional content? What if you like the game and want more?

Squadron's 2! Old School Style. The people have yelled at EA that is what they want.

I'm not saying that is what I went.

Every review I've read clamors for more single player missions.
This would be an easy win for EA DLC opportunity but nooooooooooo EAs warped sense of business won't have any of that. <rollseyes>

And this is the other side of the coin, reddit's snickers were in a bunch over this.

People tell EA, evil, votes worst company in the world, no to dlc, micro's etc. Just let me buy the damn game and own it all. Well they actually did what they players wanted when they say this and then you still get lip. Facts are there are probably large percentages on both sides and no matter what you choose you hear from the opposition. Then there are the crazies that say they don't want it and then complain when they don't get it, don't be that guy is all I'm saying.

Good performance but pricey.

Using AMD's best including new Big Navi 61 FPS in BL3... wasn't impressed.
Don't judge yet. To be fair, BL3 performance at 4k with high graphics settings is a system killer, with lower fps relative to other newer AAA games, even on the Nvidia 3080.

I'll wait since Nvidia dropped the supply ball.

Big day!

Probably be one of those issues where you can't get one though. But then maybe not, we'll see. 3080 still a big bummah to the point I'll wait to see what AMD has and it would have to be amazeballs.

Sort of interesting way to look at things with being home, I'd say it balances itself and them some not having to commute. To me the home owner should be able to handle the coffee and TP. But whatevers.

In DOS2 they added in really great controller settings at a later point. It was something else as I've never experienced an isometric "PC" rpg with X-Box controller support before and it was so well implemented and easy to use. Hopefully, they add that into BG3 by 1.0. Disco Elysium recently added in WASD support and that's been pretty cool too.

It's already in, working with Stadia for example.

Here's the most common game play complaints I've heard:

Too much surface/environmental element damage.
Cantrips shouldn't be able to trigger environmental elements, too easy to do.
Extra Actions are too spammable for everyone.
Everyone can use scrolls.
Slow AI reaction times sometimes.


The twitch feature where you can pool the audience for dialog choices is a game changer that we'll keep seeing more of.

That said, looks solid and will be solid when 1.0 is released. This is ole-Bioware level crafting at work here.

It's the plan to stay in EA for at least a year combined with the audacity to ask 60+bucks without setting a real deadline aka release date for themselves and us that pisses me off. People that fall for this shit enable this shit.

As one said you could pre-order CP2077 a long time ago and get nothing but a wait. They are clear what this is and there is a ton of feedback already at their main site forums, that's what people love to do. Choice.

I'm not sure when/if when I will join in. I can still participate in feeback, watch twitch etc.

Their release is above industry standards in terms of bugs and balance.

Not really. Both Original Sins had game-breaking bugs at release and both were far from feature-complete. A lot of (QoL) features were added in the months and years after release.

And that is industry standard at release. A lot of games never get an enhanced version, like all games could, there are always things to improve. The game was playable from start to finish for most on release, can someone hit a game ending bug? Yes and for this style of game that again is common. IMO their quality on first release is right around avg and like anything the bugs fixes in the first month typically clean up all really needed issue for most and just more of the same here.

I'm not saying buy it day one or I don't even care if one buys it, but I don't find their stuff worse than what we normally get, far from it, their engine for this genre is way out in front of others which makes it more pleasurable to play. For example PoeT or Wasteland 3, they will forever have slow load times on small maps (unity), not a bug but a definite limp issue where Larian will never have this issue or they haven't yet.

I really hope the multiplayer mirrors the original BG games where each player can save their characters to their own computer and not DOS2 where only the host saves all characters. I haven't seen any mention of this in the news leading up to release so I worry it will be the latter.

Would be nice, but I'm doubtful. They do always work on enhancing their engine, that would be a great feature.

This is the test of will. Those who are excited AF but don't go for this EA will have passed it. Why ruin the ultimate experience of playing the polished, full game by eating from the pan before the meal is ready? Your hunger will already be sated before it's served. So silly.

Amen. I'm with you on this but to each their own. I won't be playing BG3 until there is the Definitive Edition or whatever they are going to call it. With Larian the early access is basically the alpha testing, the release version is the early beta, the Enhanced Edition is the 1.0 release version and the Definitive Edition is finally the (almost) fully patched 1.x release.
I'm not interested in replaying a (hopefully) story-rich game so I will want to play the "ultimate experience" as you called it and that will be the Definitive Edition in a couple of years. I can wait. Easily.

The EA is like alpha/beta
Their release is above industry standards in terms of bugs and balance.
Their Enhanced Editions are masterworks.
No doubt EE is the most elegant. EA is nice to share feedback and temper alt-itis.

VR is just what FSim needs. I tried FSim X with VR through some hackery a few years ago and it was game changing. I was amazed how much better a flight sim is with it. I knew it was going to be good, but it blew my expectations away and with FSim 2020, it's really going to be great. Currently I have a CV1 Rift so hopefully I can get in the second phase. I also hope I get the email soon that it's now my turn to finally buy the Index as I've been on the list for quite a while now.

The only downside is the need to lower the settings down, but the immersiveness and presence you'll get with VR, it should be more than fine.

Any flight sim or racing sim is better in VR. Nothing more to say.

Like I said, I will be replaying in single-player & coop, many times over time. EA is only 25 hours, a good taste. So far, not many games released this year, I've been playing FFXIV, would like to give that a breather. Looking forward to see what BG3 has now; looking forward to seeing how the game changes in full release and into future. I don't think it's silly, it's a plan.

It will 100% spoil your experience, take it from someone who was in the ALPHA onwards of D:OS 1 you do NOT want to see behind the veil.... ever

I didn't feel that.
