This game is really good
the narrative falls apart especially if you are at all familiar with dnd
okay so you know the whole plot about the mindflayers? it's stupid
Remember in bg2 when you went to the mind flayer layer and they made you fight in a giant gladiator arena because, uh, reasons, and then you steal magic brine juice and use it to kill the Elder brain which summons magic brain golems? How in the FUCK is this worse?
>tranidurs gate 3
Based on one of the most popular manga in Japan because otaku find it relatable, cry about it.
don't talk to me tranny
tranniest post I've ever read in my life
No, I don't, because I did not play BG2, just like I did not play BG3.
I am lonely and the only social interaction I have is arguing with strangers on the internet.
I will now deflect by calling you a troon.
you had a good point and then ruined it by posting literal trannime
he does it to make you extra mad
I'll never understand why some people on this website are so obsessed with anime.
What happened that made Japanophiles think they're welcome here?
/misc/ and /b/ don't care about Japan so where are these Jap obsessed tourists coming from and why?
Low quality bait
Get your dick split.
let me guess, it's the best game ever and Ganker is stupid?
Yes, it is.
I wouldn't call it THE BEST but it is one of the best RPG games out there.
how many RPGs have you played?
No, shartfieldjeets are stupid
actually it's bad tho
Nah it's good.
sorry we don't like good games around here
Yeah I didn't really like it, it has too many gays and trannies in it for my taste but to each his own OP.
this I"m not playing some gay fag tranny game
>dice rolling turn based visual novel is le good
standards are fucking low nowdays huh
To be fair what else even came out this year? I took a look at the goty nominations list and it was fucking grim lol
Yes and let this be a reminder to never listen to Ganker when they say something is bad
Nope and let this be a reminder to never listen to Ganker when they say something is good
I enjoy myself every time I play it but the game's just so big that I can't be bothered actually playing it.
I'm sure it is good but I have a feeling it gets massively overrated simply because everything else is so shit save a few games per year
Nah, it's up there with Fallout 1 and BG2
Not really. The writing is actually good. Characters are consistent unless you use the magical persuasion button and convince them otherwise. However for big choices, you gotta roll big numbers that totally nobody savescummed amarite.
Game has such good writing that it takes in account player killing off people or playing the game in sort of a reverse. Great game, Ganker is just often times incapable of enjoying games.
>The writing is actually good
It's literally written by redditors for redditors.
Jesus Christ; Ganker has hit beyond rock bottom. What a fucking embarrassment of a post, dude.
Provide examples of non reddit writing
Provide examples of how it ISNT reddit dogshit, homosexual. You're the one calling the writting good.
Very israeli behavior. Provide an example, please.
I'm not that anon. I just want to see what you consider non reddit
Final Fantasy 4. A real RPG with no homosexual shit.
Now have a nice day homosexual.
BG2 and DA:O are redditmax too
reddit didn't exist yet
Pretty much yeah.
This game isn't any better than Dragon Age: Origins. yeah the graphics are prettier, the maps bigger, but that's about it. But AAA studios have ignored this genre for years, so having anything thats good is gunna stand out.
What? I literally just replayed DAO after finishing BG3 and BG3 is so much better in every way other than the writing. DAO has awful gameplay mostly due to the overly basic classes and skills available, very boring and repetitive dungeons, terrible quest design, tiny cramped maps with barely anything in them, the typical 2010s RPG loot design (AKA a million generic swords of +3.6% crit chance vs poisoned enemies on tuesdays only), the only good thing the game has is the writing which is way more grounded and nuanced than in BG3. And even that is subjective, I know many people thought DAO was too boring and derivative and who really liked all of the crazy shit in BG3.
BG3 has le quirky Larian writing for good or ill
>other than the writing
Story is a big deal anon, well for this type of game. Most of your other complaints are the result of technology moving on. Yeah the dungeons seem small - because they are nowadays.
>2010 rpg has 2010 game design
Out of interest - what was your Origin,class etc?
>Most of your other complaints are the result of technology moving on
Absolutely not, actually what I did was play BG3->BG1->BG2->DAO and I thought that DAO was worse than BG2 in pretty much every way despite BG2 being 10 years older. The dungeons aren't small, they're overly linear and full of boring copy pasted fights. The "2010 game design" point seems silly considering that the same company made several other RPGs that avoided those problems. Obviously the BG series as a whole benefits from being based on DnD which features spells designed for open ended roleplaying rather than clearing dungeons in a video game, but I was shocked by how Bioware seemed to learn nothing from the DnD video games they made and decided to make the spells in DAO the most basic and unimaginative shit possible - damage, basic crowd control, heals and straight forward numerical buffs. That's pretty much all there is, and you just end up doing the same shit over and over in all of the copy pasted mob fights you have to go through. They're closer to WoW spells than the DnD ones from the older Bioware RPGs.
>Out of interest - what was your Origin,class etc?
I played a human noble warrior, ended up going templar+champion as the party's main tank. Most of the time my party was Morrigan as a debuff/damage mage, Wynn as a pure healer and Leliana as an archer + traps and locks and shit.
Stop giving DAO so much shit. I mean nothing you said was wrong. But so what. Something HAS to be baby's first crpg(if you could even call it that). I think it was decent enough to get people into more complex things. And I don't remember anymore, but I think alot of the praise came from the graphics and animations. I think this was during the graphics over gameplay bullshit that was starting to take root in the industry.
>I think it was decent enough to get people into more complex things
No one that enjoys DAO has ever moved onto more complex things. These are the kind of retards who think bg2 is some 5000IQ game and the peak of the genre.
Bg2 is all it needs to be: way better than bg3
Thanks for proving my assertion.
Okay, now you're just being overly pretentious. I haven't even play BG2, but it can't be THAT bad.
I played all of the Infinity Engine/NWN games as they were released, and DAO was still my favorite. But then I'm not autistic about spell mechanics or whatever "complexity" is being talked about, I just thought the world-building and characters and role-playing elements were fantastic.
Yea the writing I think is the game's sole saving grace. Especially when it comes to the decisions you can/are forced to make. BG2 was never really about that type of stuff and BG3 is too dumb to have any really interesting dilemmas.
it's really the only reason to play early rpgs like mass effect 1 too
hell I think that's why most people played them in the first place
I mean, the post I was originally replying to said it was as good as BG3 and I still disagree, even accounting for its age. But yea when I first played DAO back in 2009 I did enjoy it, but I had never played BG1 or 2 at that point. Coming into it after playing BG2 made it seem a lot less impressive given how many things it does worse than BG2, a 10 years older game made by the same devs.
>But yea when I first played DAO back in 2009 I did enjoy it, but I had never played BG1 or 2 at that point.
Same bro. As I said, I don't think your wrong. I should play BG2 to see for myself. Playing 3 was fun.
That's exactly it + social media bandwagon effect that Ganker is not immune to even though it thinks it is
The game that broke the chuds before even releasing and then broke them again.
Yeah mindbroke me with how terrible the writing is
I beg to differ.
And the reddit gold goes to.. BALDURS GAYTE 3
Along with every GOTY under the sun for this year, no amount of screaming "reddit" is going to change that. Cheesed to meet you.
wow I can't wait to download this game and talk to a rat
How about a cat ordering you to kill rats then?
A bigger cat?
were they this desperate for content
Are you new to DnD?
which version? the one where women sit around a table and talk to cats in their imagination?
Speak with Animals is a pretty average thing of DnD, please kys.
Why do you play vidya if games of imagination are incomprehensible to your pea brain
I don't imagination the video game is there to provide that
Not even going to lie. This, specifically, felt very desperate.
resurrecting the old cast was definitely an asspull
Bringing in Minsc is a crime :/
The fact that they wall him behind Act 3 is the big shame of the game. Would've loved to encounter him earlier.
Didn't really feel like it was too bad to have the old cast there. It's a nice nod to the older games with devs respecting the source. More so if you play as Dark Urge. Which you should as DU has an amazing storyline.
>devs respecting the source
I really liked the Jaheira Larian did.
the old hag? wtf?
I love this game so much.
Throwing Boo has actually a special voiceline for each companion and Boo has also chance to blind enemies when you throw him at them.
>gay furry vore
so glad I didn't buy this slop lol
no thanks I don't want to talk to people pretending to be sentient animals
Mouse puns are fun.
This game needed a ratfolk companion.
why. it's gameplay Is shit, its story is shit. so what does it have to offer? making retards feel good that they can find a way to not have to actually engage with the world meaningfully, because they can break the lock of a door instead of finding a key?
Maybe you have shit taste
*sigh*. I don't even want to bother. because talking to Ganker feels like talking to 3rd graders but.
you realize you didn't remotely challenge anything I said? just cried and whined about somebody inquiring on what makes the game supposedly good? when you don't answer such simple and unassuming questions, it comes across as being threatened by the necessary fact that somebody could possibly not immediately believe that something you think is good, is. Which comes across as being too retarded to realize that your subjective experience isn't infallible or objective.
>what does it have to offer?
Being a girlfriend simulator for sexless NEETs
> I don't like it because it has gays
Why haven't you quit life yet? It also has gays.
Thankfully if you see a homosexual in public you can not associate with them
If you see a homosexual in this game, you can kill them on the spot or tell them to fuck off.
I'll raise it even. You can kill the faggor, then drag his body.
Use enlarge on yourself. Proceed to throw the body of the dead homosexual as an improvised weapon.
The entire cast of the game is gay, that's a little different than not talking to a homosexual in public
They are player sexual, are you new to these kind of games?
No, they are TRANsexual, see
>these kind of games
RPGs made for fujos? yeah I don't play them
Kids these don't remember how badly fags and trannies used to seethe and cry that sexualitys would be locked in back in the day.
If you just write every romance the exact same, you save yourself a tonne of work and you avoid a internet mob calling you an 'ist'.
Smart developer doesn't give a shit about people calling them -ist
And instead does a quality game. If the game's good, it's good. Let people seethe over it, then proceed to play Starslop or something that has all the mediocre gay tranny options where they can immerse themselves in the boring, bland world until so they don't think how badly they wanna kill themselves.
No one is doing this 'diversity' shit for fear of being canceled you fucking moron. It's for the fucking egs money. How fucking stupid can NPC's possible be if they are ignorant of that single fact at this point in time. Seriously how long has this shit been going on.
I suppose you're right. Look how many people smeared 'BLM' on their homes and stores in hopes they be spared. But just like those devs caving in to this shit. It won't help. As soon as your franchise is ruined and and fans driven away, Blackrock will have no reason to give you ANYTHING. Then where will they be. Yes, I suppose you are right anon.
So you have to either put up with tranny homosexuals being hamfisted into a game or else brutally murder them just for being trannies? Are you sick and demented?
Why should I? I can do whatever I want, so I can choose not to willingly play a game that has fags and trannies in it.
Gays should do it, they’re the blight.
>LOL FINAL FANTASY 16 HAD ONE GAY IN IT AHAHHAHAHA homosexual WOKE SHIT GAME
But Baldur's Ga-
>DOESN'T COUNT OKAY IT'S ACTUALLY GOOD! WHY? IT JUST IS OKAY!!!
The combat is boring, the quest system is terrible, and the characters are all woke. It's really well shilled and botted by China, though
All the success and hype is fake though so I guess it really doesn't matter.
DERE HE IS
>Look mom I posted it again
>tencent has substantial shares in dozens of gaming companies and as a result hundreds of games
>the only game out of all those hundreds they've botted and shilled is Baldurs Gate
l m a o
All the success and hype is fake though so I guess it really doesn't matter.
post the image of the reddit post losing his shit when he got cuck in game.
>buys cucks game
>gets surprise when he gets cucks
>the guy that made that post delete it since people didn't stop calling him a cuck
I'm not saying this game is perfect or anything but most of Ganker just hate it because it's popular and acclaimed
No I hate it because it has fags and trannies in it
Nope. It's so much worse than that.
>The tranny is a LEADER OF A CIRCUS.
This alone makes it so much funnier. Also you can kill the tranny, so who cares.
>Also you can kill the tranny
So you have to kill the tranny just for being a tranny? Is there no other way to deal with the situation? Are you sick and demented?
you can just ignore her quest?
NO, FUCK THAT!
you will never be a woman etc.
I really didn't have problem with any character in the game. So I don't care.
The game was fun, I enjoyed it.
Option is there though. If you hate the trannies so much, kill them. Problem solved, game has no tranny you hate anymore.
Yes and let this be a reminder to never listen to Ganker
Ganker is currently telling me to never listen to Ganker so that means... I should listen to Ganker
It is an overhyped tranny game. Not to mention that Larian is now 1/3 Chinese owned.
gimmie a challenge build. I'm thinking maybe 1 or 2 characters only, or maybe a level 1 only run through.
It has top tier romance with sex scenes and nipples. How am I not supposed to give it a GOTY when I can hear Shadowheaft/karlach/etc. (An attractive woman) tell me that they want to fuck me and love me? Not an incel btw
>it has top tier gay sex scenes
okay fag dont care
this game is worse than the worst mmo holy shit, wtf is that garbage hud?
Because nagger sends you on an errand quest around the whole of Act 3 to assemble a clown that will weigh quite a lot in your inventory for a pair of neat gloves that's honestly either to pickpocket from him or take from the body.
wow what a dick
>weights a lot
Send them to camp, retard.
Don't like sending quest items to camp. Anyway, it's about taking the gloves earlier because Spellmight is fucking fire if you're a warlock and since the last part is at Orin's crib is easier to just club the nagger before even going to Lower City.
western erotic game for women
We're all women here.
my ovaries are hanging outside my body man
There is a porn of that.
post yfw myrkul popped out of the pool
I wish baldur's gate 3 had an anime aesthetic.
i wish it had no gays or trannies
>Wanting derivative trash aesthetic
Do females unironically post on Ganker? I can't imagine what kind of bottom of the barrel roastie you would have to be to post on here of all places.
/vg/ probably has more because they're all attention whores over there
>Do females unironically post on Ganker?
>I can't imagine what kind of bottom of the barrel roastie you would have to be to post on here of all places.
yes the fujo scourge
we're going to have to draw straws to marry them so they stop being so detrimental to vidyah
I will marry one but I will never have sex with them because real girls are gross
we're going to have to keep them so pregnant they can't use their cellphones
I want a divorce
I never see people posting gameplay when discussing this game...
Have you guys actually tried playing any dragon age game again? They aged terribly, and I used to like these games.
DA2 was dated when it came out so that's not a surprise
xbox kids grew up in an extremely insulated ecosystem and were completely ignorant as to what level of shit they were playing. there is currently a wave of nostalgia for this era and it's extremely cringe.
"really good"!? *Anon laughs*
It's Baldur's Gate 3...it's the Greatest Game of all Time!
All hail Larian! All hail Swen!
Peace and advantage rolls to ALL anons!
>Can kill goblin children
>Can't kill thiefling children
Nice "free" choice there Larian.
People conplaing about combat don't have any creativity. They just pick the most meta class and swing sword or cast favorite spell.
Tons of fun when you fuck around and create scenarios
>cast hideous laughter
>Enemy falls down laughing
>have gale cast Phantasmal killer
>Enemy is forced to laugh at his most inner nightmares.
>do nothing but skip turns as he's the last man standing
>His brain is hemorrhaging each turn taking damage
>my party surrounds and looks down on him as he's crying at this point from laughing, unable to do anything as his nightmares continue to ravage his brain, no screaming for help or praying to his God
>His brain Finally gives out and HP is drained, and dies as blood spills out from his eyes and ears and nose
You might be onto something.the combat can feel lackluster in the few initial levels, but getting more creative with it is up to the player and it's really great the amount of shit and strategies you can build
No it’s not
>t. Naruto fan
*rasengans your fagshit*
>finishing up second playthrough
>didnt care for DU, but the first gift cape breaks the game with how good it is
>drow best dialogue
>monk gets way too much OP gear
>act 3 really does feel a bit sloggy by the 2nd playthrough
overall a 8/10, had a blast. Would absolutely buy any dlc or content larian shits out. Really wish DOS1-2 had as good writing and wasn't quite as silly high fantasy because I actually liked the environmental actions that game had a bit better than bg3.
>do second playthrough
>everything up to act 3 goes swimmingly
>as soon as i get to baldurs gate keep getting some weird mmo like lag where characters besides the one your controlling freeze and it takes 2 minutes to start a dialogue up
they need about 6 more years
Larian needs to improve on the computer AI companions. I hate when I detect a trap and one of the retards walk straight into it, triggering it.
Learn to separate your team retard
BG3 was alright buts its massively held back by fucking >5e
I wil never play this game full of homosexualry and there's nothing you can say that will change my mind.
Cool. Go play your Morrowind or Fallout 2 for like sixth time.
Then once done, come complain how every game sucks while being all the time miserable because you have no new good experiences to share or talk about.
Actually I'm playing through Pikmin 4 right now. So far there's been no forced cultural Marxism propaganda. No disgusting homosexualry in sight just like games used to be. It's pretty good.
>Frogposter is a tendie
I watched the intro cinematic. it was so cringe and cheesy I refunded it
did I miss out or is this a game for children
You missed out on a brain when you were born
I don't understand. the intro is objectively terrible writing and music. am I wrong?
You are. Don't worry, it's your right to be wrong.
Yes. It's unironically the most genuine fun I've had with a video game in years.
I've never played the game twice in a row. As in finish it, then proceed to start a new run.
BG3 broke me in that regard. I'd play a third but I'm just gonna wait for a DLC... if there's any.
I wanna lategame make a party where everybody is a druid and has a Displacer beast form.
Did you really only play through Dark Souls and Elden Ring once? You missed so much not doing a ng+.
See anon. Until last year, I had a very bad PC. All the games I could play were pretty old and I couldn't run anything new.
Last year in October, I got myself a new PC. I franky didn't have time to play through Elden Ring twice because I had so many games lined up to play. To this day, I am catching up with the list of games. I'll probably replay Elden Ring again though after DLC drops.
Imagine not only visiting sites where you can find this garbage in the first place, but actually saving it on your computer.
It never ceases to amaze me how the art can be so technically competent yet so devoid of unique personality. Probably a thousand tumblr girls with the exact same, interchangeable style. It's like that smooth, oily, instantly-recognizable AI slop, but intentional.
it's a sketch with a gradient plopped in it and some blush
only the assets are, but the game logic is terrible, toddler tier. ofcourse, you're a huge cancerous mongoloid, so you can't tell, and you're impressed by the empty high production quality assets. You're an NPC fascinated by flashing lights, retard.
I tried to watch some guy sum up the story on youtube and every single second sounded like schizo nonsense
The cope is getting more desperate by the day.
can you sum up the story and make it not sound like shit?
I won't because you will clearly respond with some stupid bullshit or be biased. Why should I waste my time time on you retard.
A (You) is the best you will get from me. Nothing more.
somebody that actually cared about the game would do it anyway, nagger
You are captured and implanted with a tadpole which take over your mind. For some reason it doesn't do so. You set off for a cure. You're not effected due to a relic which contains an Illithid determined to beat the Elder brain puppeting the 3 evil stooges trying to create an army of thralls.
Obviously there's individual character motivations that delve deeper, but broad strokes.
It's shit, yawn
Love you too anon. Try not to stay up to late.
So they resurrected Balduran and made him a gay squid so that there would be a reason why you don't die fighting some sort of new "chosen" of a specific deity or something? And I assume they're super compelling evil bad guys even though their plot to take over the world is paper thin, right? they're just the best characters ever, right?
>Elder brain puppeting the 3 evil stooges
It's actually the other way around. The 3 stooges, minions of Bhaal, Bane and Myrkul, enslaved the elder brain. They only act as stooges for the sake of preserving the illusion that is The Absolute, but they are the puppeteers.
I just don't understand why Larian thought an elder brain was high stakes
It's like Sauron from the lord of the rings being one of the orcs from Shadow of Mordor
By itself it isn't. But the way they modified its tadpoles to not cause ceromorphosis and instead act as an easily mass distributed mind control device is.
That's some batman forever shit
Orin acts like she's card carrying member of the rouges gallery.
Kek, it truly is. The story is so high stakes DnD too. In this three act story we have:
>An Elder Brain
>Bhaal, Myrkul and Bane
>Two (2) rogue Illithids
>One of them being fucking Balduran himself
>A vampire Lord
>A few devils and demons all playing games
>An Illithid colony
>A fallen Shar worshipper turned immortal
>An Aasimar demi Goddess
>A flesh golem who took over thr strongest bhaalspawn to ever exist
Like the list goes on. Tons of shit that are already rare on their own, let alone at the same time. It's like an All Star game or something.
Yeah that's the point of BG, it's not a normal campaign
I'm autistic and I'm stuck on the elder brain. Such a strong roster over something so inconsequential, mindflayers. Elminster could fart and kill 80% of that roster and casually shoots the shit with you and your party. Okay? So I guess the stakes aren't that high
It's a good time. On my second playthrough and doing the Jack of all trades achievement. Looking forward to getting to play with my friends soon, 4 player co-op sounds dope.
>yfw there are people who will never enjoy BG3 because terminal brain-rot has convinced them that it's a "tranny Reddit game!1!1!!"
This game has too much content. I feel overwhelmed sometimes when playing.
Getting into act 3 after 2 is especially overwhelming
Act 1 is amazing, 10/10 CRPG of the decade. Sadly, it falls off hard from there. Considering act 1 is like 40 hours long, it still is a pretty good experience and value.
7/10. story is shit characters are shit music is good combat is good graphics are good. i didn't really have any fun though. it's just made well, not written well or even well conceptualized. that's my professional opinion as someone who has played well over 3 video games.
Traditional real RPGs aren't really about narrative, that's what a VN is.
The game had my GOTY vote but they removed the drow pregnancy and the sex with a hot old lady but they kept zoophilia and incest orgies so they can go fuck themselves
>you will fuck the bear
>you will not have a traditional family with the drow
>you will not fuck the gilf
it'll surely come in the Definitive Edition goyim
Godspeed paladin brother
Dont forget to obliterate the disgusting tranny halfling in the newspaper company
I hate Gale
