      This. Stop adding unneccessary updates that only balloons the game's file size. I wish I could delete half of the stuff added to Halo The Masterchief Collection. The game doesn't need to be over 120 GB even with all the dlc installed, that's so stupid. These games were on the Xbox 360, it should be around 30 GB MAX.

        Preach brother, I downloaded it once, but within a week later had to uninstall for disc space and only played 60 minutes of a game that was on the OG Xbox
        Their needs to be a law against purposefully not compressing files and optimizing the space it takes up, these companies are still seeing how much they can get away with which is why were getting a 300Gb COD and GTA6 will be one of two things, double that size or a quarter of it because they simply compressed audio files or something

          Trouble is the stupid 'iconic' D20. There is zero reason to keep that, but its tradtion so it wont go away easily. Rolling tables on a D100 range would imo work far better for a CRPG, much better granulation and making a crit roll into some really major and really rare killer exception won't make your game into a joke anymore.

      They made the best possible version of 5E, not that im complaining really, i like 5E its a good edition, but they should try something else, either 3.5 or something completely outside of D&D.
      Whatever they do i will be following them, they make great gameplay, though i admit the 5E D&D aspect was far more balanced and intricate than whatever systems they built for Divinity Original Sin, im praying they will make it much better in the next game.

      5e gives no choice, every character is more of less the same, having no options when leveling any character below level 5 is a gravest sin for any rpg. Its great for lobotomized subhumans like brownies and women but any 90iq+ suffers from stifled and streamlined progress. You do not make any build, they are premade for you.

          5E has very limited choice of general talents which are available for almost everyone and have no lvl requirements for taking. This results in a situation where you plan your build on very early stages and mindlessly clicking in enemies until the labor is done. In 3E you are making at least some important decisions, 5e feels like a movie or idle clicker at best.

              Its the fault of 5E foremost, because its contains 10% of a normal dnd edition. You cannot milk the game long enough until ruleset runs out of content, Larian did a good job but the base itself is primitive and restrictive.

        The complaints I usually hear are about it being LESS restrictive than 3.5. Having done 5e pen and paper games myself, you can absolutely do semi-unique builds, if you're not trying to minmax (doing that at an IRL table makes you a gay anyway)
        Current game I'm in has me playing a Rogue that's STR-based. You couldn't make that work in earlier editions because the ruleset wouldn't allow it to be viable.

          A strength rogue is way way stronger in 3.5, is also the strongest Rogue build by far in 4E with literally 2 different features enabling it, and was the only way to use melee prior to 3E. The frick are you on?

        >19) Daisy - It's not a secret that Daisy was cut from the game after the last EA release and replaced with "The Guardian." Originally Daisy was representative of the tadpole in your head, not the Emperor, and would attempt to seduce your character into staying in the meadow by the river with her forever. A happy life with an imaginary dream lover while your body underwent ceramorphosis and was lost to you forever. Daisy was such an important part of the plot that both of the games theme songs "Down by The River" and "The Power" are based entirely upon Daisy. Datamined content also shows there was originally an ending where players would embrace a romance with Daisy and give themselves over to the parasite, forever leaving their individual consciousness "down by the river" with Daisy.

          They're not making a DnD game next though, and DOS2 while it was a good game and really pushed the envelope for CRPGs, has inferior RPG mechanics and world building compared to DnD and the Forgotten Realms.

              Normies only like dungeons and dragons because 5e makes it simple enough for them to understand. You're delusional if you think the average normie would homebrew 3.5 splats before Critical Role and 4e/5e explicitly tried to make DnD more like a video game and more moron friendly. People only liked the idea of DnD before 4e, no one but turbonerds actually played it.

              >Criticial role and shows/media related to D&D pop up
              >All of a sudden the current edition of DnD becomes popular
              You guys are autists if you cannot fathom why a normie who watched Stranger Things or listened to Critical Role started playing 5E, as in the CURRENT edition. The differences between 5E and 3.5E or whatever are so meaningless when it comes to why 5E is popular you might as well walk around with a sign saying "I'M AN AUTISTIC NERD" if you think this has any sway into anything.

              Why did BG3 become popular ? Because it's a game with dungeons, dragons, normie friendly characters and gameplay that simulates homebrewed fun rather than playing 5E, 4E, 3.5E or whatever the frick nerdy moronation you guys can cope with. It's why they modified 5E to allow for shenanigans and cool battles instead of sticking with the WotC rulebook

                So meaningless that 3.5E and Pathfinder remain enormous communities in themselves? Hahaha. You're verifiably moronic. 5E took off because it was the most accessible version of the game yet and at the right time for it. 5E was already selling gangbusters BEFORE Stranger Things or Critical Role, and its success is what convinced Mercer and co to switch from 3.5 to 5E for their ongoing game/stream.

                he chose 5e because he liked it (at the time, no idea or care how he feels now) and your entire post is bull.

                People would have heard those things, taken one look at the actual rules for 3.5, and ran screaming. That happened several times when 3.5 was the current edition, in fact. I don't think you understand how huge NWN and Icewind Dale were when they came out, but then when people tried to actually play the game without a computer keeping track of all the rules and doing all the rolls, they immediately dropped it and the steam fizzled out.

                Critical Role only took off as much as it did specifically because the game was now simplified enough that the normies could actually play it. They always wanted to and just called the people that did nerds as a cope because they couldn't understand it.

                That is false. Critical Role took off because they got all of the e-celebs together that people wanted to watch and put out a series that nobody else was creating. They could have done it with Pathfinder, GURPS, Fabula Ultima, D20 Modern, or any other system. D&D had nothing to do with it. D&D was dead after 4th edition despite being dumbed down, entirely because nobody wanted a dumbed-down TTRPG. 5th edition is also dumbed down, but Critical Role brought an enormous group of outsiders to the game and made it the most popular system available today.
                The fallacy is that Critical Role succeeded because of 5e, when 5e was a quiet failure until Critical Role came along. Without Critical Role, Pathfinder would still remain dominant in the market (though 5e taking over lead to Paizo shooting itself repeatedly trying to mimic 4e with their own PF2e as their talent is completely gone and they no longer understand what people want.)

          As someone who never played D&D or any tabletops 5E still seems like an imbalanced mess, like the devs didn't play test the game past the 10th level. There are dozens of feats but only 1 or 2 are useful for each class. It's the definition of false choice. Are there other D&D likes that have better balanced classes?

            PF2e would probably be your best bet if you are coming from 5e. Its got a hell of a lot more choice built in and is better balance. Still suffers from being a D20 system but if you want to play D&D without playing D&D its probably the most accessible given the ruleset is free.

          I think it did matter that it was D&D, but the thing that mattered about it is it doesn't require deep knowledge of the lore to get into it, it isn't hugely focused on returning characters, and feels about as close to a table top experience with friends as any game.

                Before, BG3 was stuck in never ending early access period, and it still managed to top steam charts every time a big new patch came out, but there wasn't really any reason to be excited for a game that had no clear release date. Larian massively ramped up promotion of the game in June and July of 2023, and the anticipation of the game's imminent release is what got people to talk about it more, not some shitty viral meme that was forgotten after a week outside of Ganker. You can just look at the chart and see the facts for yourself. The bear moment was a tiny blip compared to the hype, buzz and publicity BG3 had at launch week and the following month. Quite literally no one even gave a shit about it outside of Ganker at that point and it was not a point of conversation anymore, and Ganker only posted about it because that's the ONLY thing the average poster here knew about the game.

        >because it's Faerun
        Pffft, the most popular normie media property related to D&D before this was fricking Shitical Role, which was Matt Mercer's shitty homebrew world. BG3 was popular because it's 5E and 5E is a normie magnet

        I dont give a frick about gay ass D&D shit. I bought the game because it's a good RPG. Both the west and japan forgot how to make good ones, and this was a breath of fresh air.

        Out of all the people I know who played BG3 only a couple know anything about Faerun. Even the ones who actually play DnD only ever play homebrew settings.

        Nah homosexual, just being Faerun isn't the only thing that made this game great. It's probably the first truly RPG game with a lot of pathing directions where they have thought of everything in player interaction is what made this game become a sensation and a lot of homosexual companies b***hing and moaning not to expect this game to be the norm, that this was going to kill their future slops. Not to mention the interactivity in every class you play and having their own reaction to the events and world.

        If Larian can do this with a Sci-Fi RPG game, I'd be there in an instant.

    Some combo of a DLC invariably being set around act 3 or after, which is the weakest part of the game, and wizards being both a notorious group of c**ts to work with and GW levels of incompetent on the management side.
    Bowing out while they're getting accolades from both normalgays and journos means they won't get tarred by highlighting the least finished part of the game, nor will they get fricked by wizards going full moron

    Now they've got a warchest to play with for their next IP, and a higher profile to sell it. Ultimately wizards needs larian more than they need wizards, because outside of owlcat, nobody else can sell video games based on the IP.

He's showing a 52% completion rate for Act 1, meaning most players don't beat the game. He probably doesn't understand that most games, especially long RPGs, also have pretty terrible completion rates and there's nothing special about BG3 in this regard.

    Larian were working closely for years and years with a bunch of WOTC staff and got to know them pretty well. WOTC are also a fricking horrible company, owned by an even more moronic company (Hasbro), famous for Ebeneezer Scrooge-tier moustache twirling shit like christmas layoffs.
    https://www.forbes.com/sites/robwieland/2023/12/13/hasbro-layoffs-affect-wizards-of-the-coast/
    Swen saw a lot of the people he worked with BG3 on get fricking cumpstered and dumpstered by Hasbro despite BG3 being a massive success and making money hand over fist on top of winning awards and printing cash for WOTC through licensing, and unsurprisingly has a dim view of the company as a result (as anyone who's dimly aware of /tg/ shit the last five years is keenly aware of)
    https://x.com/pcgamer/status/1735267776460132536

    If he has the choice between making more shit for fricking Hasbro vs making a new game that's 100% in-house IP, why wouldn't he go with the latter? It's not like they need the D&D brand recognition to get people interested in their games at this point, they've already hit the mainstream.

        You do have a point, i'm putting a lot of trust in the intelligence of the executives at WotC to understand that it was Larian and their games that sold a new Baldur's Gate to people and not just the name. The name certainly helped it sell but now people are familiar with the studio behind it more so than the series itself.
        They probably increased the cost of the license 50% thinking that Larian wouldn't just walk away.

    Not owning or profiting off of anything they make for the game is what made them tell those statements. WotC owns all rights to BG3. Characters, Story, the game itself. Larian paid them to make a game for them that they own and not Larian. It's why they ain't making a DLC. They will get nothing from doing it. It's why they won't make 4. Because it's just extortion of their talents.

      Pretty much. Seems like they had a pretty shitty contract too. Something like 20% of revenue from BG3 sales goes to WOTC based on Hasbro reporting they made 100 million from BG3 in the first 3 months or something like that. D&D was a walking corpse of a brand, and they incurred massive losses from the movie flopping in theaters. Hasbro should have been paying Larian for reviving and breathing second life into the brand.

      Baldur's Gate 3 became the best-selling game on both Steam and GOG.com on the day of its early access launch. On Steam, the game had about 537,000 concurrent players on release day and peaked at 875,000 two weeks after release. Baldur's Gate 3 sold more than 2.5 million copies during its early access phase. Sales surpassed Larian's expectations, as well as those of Microsoft when considering the Xbox release. By February 26, 2024 the game had sold upwards of 10 million copies, according to the Director of Publishing at Larian.

              It provides no meaningful character choices past usually level 3, level 5 at most. Most players wind up multiclassing out of sheer boredom eventually. Bounded bonuses and universal application of advantage rather than any ground for circumstance bonuses also results in a very inflexible system as an actual TTRPG.
              All of this on top of the many, many problems that 3.5 or DnD in general already had, which morons magically pretend are new to 5e.

            No, it is automatically tied to AC.
            Finesse is not automatic and only applies to certain weapons. Finesse applying to damage instead of only attack bonus is also not what the person was fricking complaining about you inbred moron. Dex affects AC in 5e in literally the EXACT SAME WAY as 3.5, and finesse is not relevant to how much dex you need in a strength-focused build.

                The same elements are true, it's just that finesse is stronger. If you're not playing a finesse build that does not factor into the stats which you need, which doesn't matter.
                Is it too tunneled in when you're playing a finesse build? Yeah, probably, but finesse sucking shit like base 3.5 or even pathfinder was also bad.
                There's many, MANY problems with 5e. Finesse builds being actual real builds is not one of them. Complain about the shit that actually matters instead of trying to sperg out about every minor thing and you might make people actually realize why 5e is shit one of these days.

      No, I like 3.5 because it objectively has way more interesting content and it doesn't have fricktard cancer like bounded accuracy that was made for literal smoothbrains who melt down when they're asked to add +2 and a +4 in the heat of combat. Tome of Battle is 5000x better than any content ever made for 5E and that's ONE subsystem from ONE book.

      Justify a level 20 Wizard getting beat in an Arcana check by a level 1 moronic Barbarian. Go ahead.

    lol
    lmao

    DLC/expansion talk notwithstanding, BG3 isn't anywhere close to finished. Game still has more bugs than Joe's Apartment, and the newly added epilogue was just a massive blue ball tease that hints at more adventures, but is now going to lead nowhere, thanks to Larian cutting and running. I think Lae'zel skips her animation whenever she attacks approximately 50% of the time in combat. And the cross wheel STILL has a mind of its own in the year of our Lord 2024. If Larian was going to treat gamepad owners like second class citizens after six years in development, two years in Early Access, 6 major patches, and 25 hotfixes, then they shouldn't even bothered making BG3 controller-compatible.

    Don't even get me started on the abysmal state of BG3's armor economy. Half of the gear selection in this game is haphazardly implemented, with many not having full sets to complete the look (hi, Ketheric's armor) others being under baked in stats, with certain classes just getting outright ignored for the first two acts because there's barely any gear tailored for them (Druids.)

    Oh, and did I mention clipping? It's like they didn't beta test this at all. Half of the races still don't fit in the hoods or helmets because their gargantuan ears still protrude out of the sides. THIS IS A YEAR AFTER THE GAME HAS BEEN RELEASED. I'd expect this lack of polish from a developer like Bioware. Basically, frick Larian for dipping out so early, frick you for defending them for it, and frick all of the woke nonsense in this game. I don't give a flying frick if Larian hates WotC. I don't care if their hatred is fully justified. Leave the players out of your squabble. I paid money for this game, so I expect to get the full experience.

    5e was deliberately made to be the most simplistic possible to cater to the masses.
    Only low IQ people think it is worthwhile, and they get really mad over other more complex systems that allow you to create more complex characters instead of playing drama club and lash out like this homosexual here

    [...]
    3.5 cretins are tryhard homosexuals that want to build zany and homosexual moronic builds with all of the meticulousness that comes with it. People jerking off 3.5 are "THAT GUY"s who just want the brokenness that it provided to build overpowered shit.

    5th Edition streamlined the game to make sense, skills are no longer applied BIG NUMBER shit and are applied to attributes and whether you are proficient giving them more randomness, and classes and subclasess play more prominent roles as they have inherent abilities instead like before where you have to apply feats.

    It provides no meaningful character choices past usually level 3, level 5 at most. Most players wind up multiclassing out of sheer boredom eventually. Bounded bonuses and universal application of advantage rather than any ground for circumstance bonuses also results in a very inflexible system as an actual TTRPG.
    All of this on top of the many, many problems that 3.5 or DnD in general already had, which morons magically pretend are new to 5e.

    Imagine that 5e is such unfun shit that those two actions eclipse all the rest of the gameplay.

    DnD in itself is stupid, all Barbarians have the supernatural power of raging, sorcerers have bloodline abilities but they akchualy just learn the same spells as wizards, Rogues instead of being fun trickster just learn how to do one big chunk of damage. A Wizard can learn invisibility at low leve and you end up asking yourself why the hell would someone invest in stealth when a Wizard can infiltrate better than a Rogue.

    There is a problem where people would rather squeeze whatever they want to play into 5E rather than just playing a more appropriate game. So people will do lovecraftian horror in 5E rather than playing CoC. Having to play this one game annoys some groups who would rather diversify.

    But what's actually happening is not that. It's weird gatekeeping. Critical Role and lockdown meant D&D exploded in popularity. And the old guard are upset and saying, nah, that's not Real D&D. And, yeah, Critical Role is shit and obviously staged and not how most tables operate, but the gatekeepers mean shit like.. it doesn't have THAC0 or whatever.

    And to understand that you need to know that a lot of D&D fans don't play D&D. They read all the rulebooks and shit like that, but they don't have a group, and it annoys them all these people came in with, like, friends. And actually played the game they wanted to play, which made them bitter. And they can get fricked.

    Very few character options in early levels and only a few archetypes to get any variations.
    If you make 7 different fighters they'll play 95% the same and that's boring and gay.
    Don't get me wrong, 3.5 and 1e Pathfinder are way too far in the other direction with a subclassed archetype feat choices and a billion base classes to make your brain hurt, but that also means level 1 games every party will feel different. 5e feels like garbage until level 3 and variant human is the only way you can get kinda interesting builds via level 1 fears
    If 5e just had feats at level 1 for every race it'd feel so much better and if stat advancements also came with a feat at levels 4 and so on. Plus those advancements ties to class level makes multi classing rough.

    Play something easy and with options like symbarum instead

    So now Hasbro (parent company of WotJ) is not talking to them, and will probably pull the license from Larian despite DnD making a shit ton of money off BG3. So... yeah.
