And another Baldur’s Gate 3 player added: “Inventory filters.”Ummm, not only are there inventory filters, but you can search your inventory also.

Long story short, years later I tried to delete my account, but since I hadn't filled out my profile, it wouldn't let me delete my account because they couldn't verify I was the account holder until I provided them with more information about myself.
It would be easier to just opt out of Facebook.

From my position I've not played such an overrated game in years. I gave up after a while in the first underdark adventure (figuring there are likely more than that). The entire presentation felt like I was watching a bunch of normal people roleplay the parts. I can totally understand how that might be absolutely perfect, because that's absolutely what D&D is, but I never felt transported to another world, I disliked most of my party, and the sexuality was absurdly front and center to the point of being annoying. Before I had reached the Druid settlement at the beginning, half my party expressed their interest in sleeping with me. It wasn't too much longer after that point that every single character was telling me I was the most amazing person they'd ever met, and all of them wanted to sleep with me. I don't like describing things as pathetic but it truly felt like it was. It pleases me so many people are enjoying the game, and giving life to a genre I grew up with, but I can not stand BG3 personally.
No offense to those loving it. I just thought I'd share my counter-experience.

I go out of the way during building to make it all nice and clean, but after a few upgrades I get to the point where I give up and leave wires dangling. I keep them out of the way for air flow, but don't care enough to make it window presentable. I recently thought about doing a new build, but I couldn't find a case I liked. I don't want a window or lighting, and I don't want buttons and USB ports on the top.
RGB is more like the cold cathode tubes that we used to install in the first cases with side windows. Yes, I was guilty of doing this.
The only thing RGB in my system is the Wraith Prism cooler and the Power Color Red Devil 6900XT, neither of which I can turn off or I would. RGB is beyond stupid.
The Half Elf wrote on Nov 8, 2023, 14:23:Rebind them to something better. I never use the default controls in any game. WASD is only good for shooters where all you do is move and shoot. Add more things and it becomes clunky. I did try controlling vehicles with a controller in GTA V and using KBM for on foot, but I gave up and just used KBM. You do get more fine controls for accelerate, brake, turning, and flying with analog controls of a controller, but I can't stand having to aim with a controller.
As for controls... let's be blunt they are designed for a gamepad. Flying a Heli, vehicle while in air control (and things like ducking down and wheelies while on bikes) work great on a gamepad, but just don't translate well to the setup Rockstar has for KB/M. Been this way since GTA3 was released.

The controls have always been a sticking point. I'm not slapping a key/button repeatedly to run anymore at my age Rockstar
Krapalicious wrote on Nov 8, 2023, 11:54:I generally don't like 3rd person games because I don't like the 3rd person view and typically find the controls bad, and this was true with GTA III and Vice City. I never got far into either of those. Starting with GTA San Andreas, they finally managed to make a 3rd person game I could play, and made it better with GTA IV.
Never really liked Rockstar games tbh.
The control schemes in their games are trash and that's a deal breaker for me.
The only Rockstar game I played and finished was Red Dead Redemption 1 on Xbox 360.
Hanneth wrote on Nov 8, 2023, 13:37:I lost count of how many times I played and finished GTA IV. I never ran into any bugs that prevented me from finishing, I don't remember any major bugs come to think of it. The only issue I had was at release, key rebinding was a mess. They eventually fixed most of it with a patch, however some things never got fixed like the right mouse button would still hang up your phone even if you rebound it.
Also I have never finished GTA IV, or V single player because it was impossible for me. I had to restart GTA4 twice because of progress stopping bugs. The last play through I just gave up after just getting past the point I had gotten the bug the previous times. GTA5 I got really close to the end on my 3rd play through, but after completing one of the main last missions, the next mission would not trigger. I didn't feel like trying to play through it a 4th time.
Mr. Tact wrote on Nov 6, 2023, 12:23:Yes it's predictable. Saturn's orbit is about 29.5 years, and this will happen twice during Saturn's orbit when the rings line up facing the earth like that. So it happens basically every 15 years.
So, I assume this happens on a predicable cycle of some kind. It would have been nice if they had said when the last time this happened was and when it will happen again (post 2032)...

I bought this game and played all of 20 minutes. Never picked it up again.
Out of the whole series I enjoyed Blood Dragon more than any of the other titles and it was mainly a side project done by a few of the employees.
I can't see the series continuing unless they can come up with something out of the box.

I apparently overlooked the original. How did it compare to "The Witness"?

If you played Doom 2 deathmatch over a 14.4k modem with zero lag, then I can relate to you. our round of bouts usually included Timinatr, Judas21, Judas23, some vort etc. Sometimes some MementoMori co-op
It was ultra awesome.

So now I'm forced to endure some crappy loud advert for some product I've no interest in so a corporation can make money from content someone else has created for them. Seriously thinking of just giving up on YT.
A Colorado judge chided a welding company that tried to pay off a $23,500 settlement with a subcontractor by sending the money in loose coins that weighed 3 tons (2.7 metric tonnes).How much does it cost to ship 3 tons?
