Do you think Baldur's Gate 3 will have a decent story, Ganker, especially since they're involving Bane, Bhaal and Myrkul all over again?

No, it's written by Larian for fuck sake.
I have no prior experience with Larian, but from what I've played of it so far, this is probably FPBP.
Character or two can be decent
But story overall will not
If you add the 5e thing then I have no idea who will enjoy this game
have a nice day you drooling fucking retard.
>isn't the continuation of the Bhaalspawn saga
Yeah it's trash made to cash in on the brand.
So why is this in a game that doesn't continue the bhaalspawn story?
Because it's trash made to cash in on the brand.
OS3 would have sold as well, its not necessary to use the BG name at all. Now WOTC making BG books and comics? Petrifying Minsc so they can reuse him? Sad.
OS3 would have sold well, but you'll never guess what game they canned to trot around the corpse of BG for even more sales.
But enough about BG2
How can you be hyped for BG3 when you hate the games this is based on? I really don't get Larian fanboys like yourself. If you hate Baldur's Gate so much, shouldn't you be the most disappointed that your precious Larian aren't doing a new Divinity game or something else but are wasting their time on a cash grab of a franchize you hate?
I love BG1, BG2 isn't really a successor but in name with asspulls like Imoen being Bhallspawn too and wine cellar Lich because you need high level encounters inside the city. Even the name is a mockery, it has nothing to do with Baldur's Gate and you never even get there at any point of the game.
The Imoen stuff was dumb, but I find it more annoying that you get off-screen by a guy who has nothing to add to the bhaalspawn story except MUH STRONG SOUL so he could suck off a tree harder.
yeah you might be mentally challenged. BG2 is one of the greatest sequels of all time right up there with games like Diablo 2 and AoE2. And of course, nobody gives a shit that you aren't visiting the city Baldur's Gate. That's one of the reasons why BG3 is so incredibly pathetic, that Larian actually thinks people have nostalgia for the fucking city of Baldur's Gate, which was just a random city near the Swordcoast Bioware chose to place their first game in, it was never anything more than that.
>BG2 is one of the greatest sequels of all time
You don't even like BG1 and have the nerve of saying this. Get out of here retard.
not him but BG1 was meh, BG2 was fucking awesome. i have 0 hope in them getting BG3 right. I'll find out once it's out, fuck open betas
>surprised that the IP called Baldur's Gate has you visit Baldur's Gate
But it is, it's implied that the only reason the tadpoles haven't already taken you over is because you're all Bhaalspawn.
how does that work? Are they retconning ToB? Because that was a very clear ending to the Bhaalspawn saga where you, the player, were the last remaining one.
>Because that was a very clear ending to the Bhaalspawn saga where you, the player, were the last remaining one.
(You), CHARNAME, have most of Bhaal's essence but not all of it. It was enough to do whatever you wanted with it but IIRC you never really had all of it.
Also as far I'm concerned ToB is such trash that I'd like to see it retconned out of existence alongside SoD.
I'm pretty sure the Bhaalspawn plot was that there can only be one. So no, in ToB, you are the last Bhaalspawn. Imoen and Sarevok gave up their essence and maybe some others did too, but in the end, you are the last person alive with the Bhaalspawn essence and you can choose to either destroy it or become the next god of murder.
>I'm pretty sure the Bhaalspawn plot was that there can only be one.
Not really, I suggest you to take a look at the dialogue with the solar after the fight with Amelyssan.
Apparently CHARNAME wasn't the only Bhaalspawn left. Remember that guy who had panic attacks and randomly teleported over the place because of it? Yeah, he and CHARNAME get in a fight and both get killed and this resurrects Bhaal, but not as a full fledged deity, but rather just a demi-god. I'm guessing he sired more Bhaalspawn and started another religion - the Absolute - to make sure he gets the energy required to ascend to the fullest or whatever.
So they are retconning the ending of ToB where you either become the new god of murder or destroy the Bhaalspawn essence forever? That's an incredibly shameless and disrespectful thing to do.
That's what WotC did, not Larian.
I'm sure that anon and larian are really familiar with bg1/2 story.
No it isn't, a bunch of people aren't turning.
No modern CRPG has a good overarching narrative. Its only singular quests that don't interact outside its path, or some characters.
I loked kingmaker and how everything was tied down to a giant lightbulb and you can see the signs on you second playthrough
Sure characters kinda sucked, but I can't say the same about main quest
>I'm gonna pretend I care about the story in a in-name-only sequel made by different creators
>bohdi gets staked which is supposed to kill vampire permanently
>we kill irenicus so hard he goes to hell
>we kill him again in hell
>and yet somehow they are both back "alive"
No. The nu-devs are feminist allies that got mad about the fact only white men care about Baldur's Gate.
>people surprised the new devs don't want to continue BioWare's story from 20 years ago
Ganker shits on the new game but I'm sure if they dared continue the old story it would go as well as people's reaction here to Minsc or Jaheira
People didn't want Larian to touch this franchize at all. Baldur's Gate is a fully concluded and wrapped up story. There is nothing to continue with the old story and there is no reason to call your new game Baldur's Gate 3.
>Baldur's Gate is a fully concluded and wrapped up story. There is nothing to continue with the old story and there is no reason to call your new game Baldur's Gate 3
For now. But if the IP is truly revived and we end up getting a Baldur's Gate 4 and Baldur's Gate 5 then the first two games will simply be seen as the first "arc". Kinda like running a DnD campaign over the years were you change characters and move beyond your initial party and plot points. Whether it's good or not it's up to you.
Completely fucking justified reaction Ganker has every right to be angry about what happened to bg3, larian literally stole the brand name while keeping nothing of the original. Should have made their own shit.
I can't take bg3 and dos2 seriously after I recently finished Wasteland 3.
It's literally the same but better, fallout and not pretending to be actual rpg.
I really hope that the popularity of bg3 with normies doesn't change the current course of crpg genre into casual shit...
Boring as fuck. You either annihilate them in your turn, or they do it on their turn. Also just not a fan of the snow wasteland setting, I prefer W2 in many ways.
coomer trash, nobody cares. don't call it baldur's gate.
No not a chance.
BG1 was the only game with a reasonable story.
Classic dungeons and dragons adventure scope.
>you're a mook kill all the kobolds
>you're competent kill these bandits
>you're the only one who can stop a scheming maniac from ritually reviving the god of murder
BG2 was doomed to be a hotdog hallway from the outset because you're matched against david warner the gigawizard, but he redeems an otherwise kooky plot.
BG3 is being made by belgians who are spending far more than reasonable ($0 is reasonable) on mocap sex scenes, and other assorted cuckolds.
What's it like being a sexless gaylord, mutt?
Stupidest fucking (You) I have ever had the unbound mirth of reading.
The DnD changes between 2e and 5e are awful. No one can salvage that situation. So, I'll just watch from a distance.
