Oh and saying everything sucks now is a boring old take. We've been saying it on GameFAQs for a decade plus now. There's plenty of gold, take the time to find it.
a ton of bugs and glitchesYeah, no
a confusing and ill-explained combat systemAgain, no
virtually everything in the game has little to no explanationThere is an inspect key that explains literally anything you mouse over, what are you talking about
and reviving a long-dormant franchise

It's amazing. GotY for sureThat's almost assuredly TotK to lose, but that will be the debate.
Yeah, noExcept yeah? This isn't up for debate and is universally known. I've had to do 5 save roll backs alone, 2 because my dialog interactions vanished with an NPC and my character sat there staring at the screen for nearly 5 minutes. And I onlying just got to Act 2. This is nevermind the staggering amount of performance glitches - for a game with stunning facial animations, the immersion sure does suffer when eyeballs suddenly pop through eyelids.
Again, noOh, it definitely needed a way more robust tutorial. Especially if it was going to attempt the movement and placement of XCom and Mario & Rabbids and miss the finesse of either.
There is an inspect key that explains literally anything you mouse over, what are you talking aboutWhich isn't the same as actually explaing what they do and how anything is relevant, of course. I don't mind having to intuit a few things, but the game drowns you in concepts and items and systems that absolutely take a lot of down time to get going, when more proper introduction to the games elements would have gone a long way.
It's not even really reviving a long-dormant franchise as much as it is rebooting it.This is all true.
Cameos from Minsc and Jaheira don't really make it a Baldur's Gate game. It's closer to being Divinity: Original Sin 3 set in Faerun.
Yeah, PO left PotD after I called him out for fucking my mom.
Oh and saying everything sucks now is a boring old take.reality is old and boring, yes
Which isn't the same as actually explaing what they do and how anything is relevant
Astarion would be the perfect man
And I told you never to tell anyone, or everybody's mom would want a piece.You've always been PotD's dad. I just want to make things official.
I had to watch @ParanoidObsessive repeatedly and erroneously call thos game DOS3 when it's clearly not, either in world feel or mechanics.
Except the tone of the game is nothing like Divinity at all.I agree with PO that it is.

The 2023 Game of the Year: The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. #beyondperfectionWhy am I not surprised
I don't really know how to explain it. To me the dialogue and writing style in general scream D:OS. Just the way things are worded and how they're laid out. Like I said, I can't explain in detail because to me it's just self evident.it just sounds like you're taking regular generic dungeons and dragons dialogue as being specific to divinity, when it was divinity copying other things for its dialogue and writing style
In what possible way? The occasional bit of humor that's there? It's not overwhelming and ever present like it is in DOS and let's not pretend Lilichor wasn't ever a thing.
The vast majority of the game is treated seriously.
https://bg3.wiki/wiki/Calm_EmotionsI did and reddit told me I had to kill them in both cases.
it's like there is a way and you didn't actually try and find out if there was
Some players complained during the early access that none of your companions are really GOOD people. Even the nicer ones don't really feel like heroesi still see so much shit about how people are upset that gale isn't some adonis Jesus hero
i still see so much shit about how people are upset that gale isn't some adonis Jesus hero

turn based combat in 2023Why would that be funny? Turn based combat never left.
