I swear, seeing stuff like this getting released makes me feel like im living in the 90's again. Steam is so over bloated from this low level game trash.

So tired of seeing it on my steam page all the time. I keep ignoring these types of games, but yet more keep showing up. UGH!!!

Take all my money!

From the screenies (which looks great), looks like they're doing both RTWP and Turn Based, an option for the player which one they want? I'm fine with that.

I'm fine with the past tense narrative for those conversation options; I suspect some people won't be given the setting and that it's DnD.


dude, I really , really hope so. but I'm not confident about it. We will see in a few hours though.

Well, I can tell you without a doubt that this game is going to be TB. So sad and disappointed, you can see in those screenshots that there is an AP section. "Action Points". I really hope I'm wrong, but it sure looks like its going to be TB

Just like DOS has. I worried that Larian being in control of this, they would go the stupid route of ruining a great game and turning ins to some fucked up TB game. Fuck!!!!

Yes, it will probably still be a good game, but fuck me, I really was hoping for a good real time Coop action adventure game like NWN.

Update: Actually on the second screenshot, you can see at the top of the shot, Turn Based. SMH!

Maybe not, but certainly expectations of the sale performance would be reduced with one year delay in the release on that platform.

As for the Playnite thing, I was actually thinking about something like that not long after EGS launched. Good to hear someone actually did it, even better that it is available for free.

I waited it out, picked u pa copy on sale. Will be doing this for most all exclusive games released. Borderlands 3 up next.

Actually, the servers have been back online for the past 5 days.

And if anyone was playing this, hope you guys got your gems stacking bug for the gold saved up. That sweet little gold bug is now gone. I stacked a bunch of extra gems just in case for spare toons or friends to get them a few mill of gold.

I hope they fixed the Drop in for Coop with this patch.

Cant believe I never saw this demo released. Going to have to check it out.

Wonder if they will try to put some kind of two players Coop in this new release?

Anxiously waiting, but very skeptical about the game play.

TB combat - will be pissed to no end.

No Coop, again pissed.

Steam Release - Thrilled!

Trying to keep exceptions in check - Yes!

According to the Steam page, it has full co-op support though? I assume it'll be the same engine as DOS 2, which fully supported co-op.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1086940/Baldurs_Gate_3/

I'm sure it will be Coop, but its the TBC that's going to piss a lot of the older devoted fans off. And seeing how Larian is doing it and most likely with their DOS engine they have in place is what worries me.

I don't consider myself a collector either. Unless a game is exceptional it's rare that I ever go back and replay it. If I could sell off my used digital copies - as I should be allowed to - I'd have gotten rid of 95% of my library by now.

If you are interested, you know that Steam has an option built into the new client where you go to the support tab of the game and can have the game removed from your library permanently if you want to. once you do this, its gone forever though. so there is no going back, you would end up buying it again if you ever wanted to play it.

Its an option, I've done this to a few of my games that are utter trash and wanted them gone, plus some betas I've been in over the years that dont self clean up after the beta is over.

Not a collector, but I do have an extensive library now. Buying games and playing them stacks up over time. Been a member of Steam since the start. So, yes after all these years, your library will build up.

So I had to see what Darks meant on the female character, and here she is, and next is someone trying to photoshop her to be more accurate. Pretty funny.

They are not even showing the side view Beamer, its atrocious. hes got her back arched so badly, they her breast dont even look right, so lame that the devs thought this was even a good look.

One other thing I should add is the friends list, they are making you use their own in game fiends list to add people. Again, baffling. they opted to not use Steams hosted services. SMH!!!

The devs are so worried about the players cheating and spamming gold in the game that they have lost sight of what they were really trying to accomplish in the long run, a good fun Coop experience. Instead they have chosen to go all anal on the players by trying to control every little aspect of the game, economy especially.

I mean I get it that they want to stop cheating, but at the cost of a friendly fun coop game is not the answer. The easy fix is to allow player hosted game characters to not be allowed and played with online hosted games. This game is not a competitive game, so I cant understand why they are trying to control the game so much.

Because the Japanese dont think like we do, they are very prideful and dedicated. They dont look to outsourcing their products and companies when they know they do it better right at home.

It also helps them to maintain a good balance for their economy.

This games release has been so frustrating, the biggest thing I'm peeved about is the lack of hosting options for us as the player. We are not able to host our own Coop servers. and on top of that, Coop is not drop in drop out.

The Female char you can play as is so broken in her looks and proportions, its not even funny, If the modelers who made her thinks that she OK in any way, then he should start looking for a new job. because shes as fucked up looking as they get.

The games fun to play, but defiantly has some design issues that needs to be resolved. some of the decision making in the game baffles the hell out of me.

I'm worried that this game could become the next Sword Coast Legends and any time they publisher could pull the plug on servers leaving this game crippled and a single player only game. Another reason why we need the ability to host our own Coop servers.

For an indie developer, I really dont understand why they would want to spend extra money on a hosting service for their online game when all of this could have easily been resolved and saved them a lot of money in the long run by allowing the players to host their own Coop. So baffling.

Not surprised at all about Disney and how they seem to be killing off everything these days.

Look what happend to Marvel Heroes when Disney bought out Marvell. killed that game almost immediately.

Sounds like this new Aliens game would have been fun, 4 players Coop plus aliens, count me in any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
