At first I read that as "Blazing Saddles Halloween Update" and was unreasonably excited

9 patches, damn that's some serious work going on. They must be in crunch mode and just didn't announce it like cd projekt red.

Edit: Holy shit, that's just for Steam, apparently GOG is still on original release. Flamethrower

If they're in crunch mode now, what mode will they be in a year from now when they actually get close to release?

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?

Supposedly the AI and pathing are improved in the release version but I'll definitely be waiting for a bit before putting any money into it.

On the YouTube channel of Rock Paper Shotgun I mentioned that BG3 looks ridiculously much like Divinity Original Sin 2, saying that if you'd just fall into a dev video of BG3 you'd think you'd be looking at DOS2. Rock Paper Shotgun reacted to my comment saying that it's ridiculous I'd say this and that the game "looks nothing like DOS2". I replied in turn with a timestamp of their BG3 video where the inventory is open and the EXACT SAME ITEM ICONS are used in DOS2. Maybe they're placeholders, but the point is that my statement couldn't be that much off the mark for them replying the way they did.

Anyway, yeah, I was excited when I heard the first news about BG3. Crazy excited. Not anymore. I bled DOS2 absolutely dry, pouring hours and hours into my first run but never finishing it so months later I started over and poured hours and hours in it again and still couldn't finish it somehow. If you'd ask me how I'd imagine my personal hell, it'd be playing DOS2 again in an eternal loop.

I'll get excited about BG3 again when I see footage of it and I don't IMMEDIATELY think I'm looking at DOS2.

Seeing as how they're using the same engine and the game isn't done yet, it makes sense that they'd reuse some assets as placeholders for stuff that isn't done yet. I don't see why that should reflect on the final product.

They should do what comic books do when their franchise is going through a slow spell. CROSSOVER! Marvel or Transformers would be my suggestion but I don't see the Joes attracting much of an audience right now on their own. Also, why does Cobra Commander sound like he is doing a bad Mark Hamill's Joker impression?

GI Joe has crossed over with Transformers several times. It is odd timing for a GI Joe game.

As I said in the other thread, I think a tactical X-com style game would be a lot more enjoyable than this.

I could see an X-com style GI Joe game being a lot of fun. This looks less promising.

You have my pity Blues. But you should be laying major blame at your utility company. Those lazy fucks didn't prune the trees next to power lines and didn't dig utility trenches in your region. I'd be pissed.

Especially because this was a serious threat to your well-being.

Pruning trees isn't going to help when a tornado comes through. And being without power for 2 days is hardly a "serious threat to your well-being", as long as you don't have mitigating circumstances like a medical device.

I've seen the wreckage that occurs when a tornado goes through a wooded area. Just incredible amounts of damage. A couple of days without power is a pretty good turnaround all things considered.

Seeing as it was slapped together haphazardly at the last second with duct tape... A bit clickbaity that article.

Not to mention it's far too early to judge how successful it was.

On the balance, missing 2-3 months of school out of 13 years of K-12 is hardly going to cause any long term damage even if they hadn't bothered with remote learning at all.
