    Did anyone catch the live PAX stream yesterday? Game is definitely turn based. Looks very good imo.

    I don't like turn based games personally.

    It's a pity Baldur's Gate 3 is going to be a turn based game now instead of a real time tactical pause like previous infinity engine games are...
    When I saw the gameplay of BG3 for the first time, it kinda remind me more of Dragon Age Origins than Baldur's Gate....
    I might have to call this game Dragon's Gate Origins it the graphics highly resembles that of DAO rather than BG...

    I'm not likely to get the game until many months after its release. (Unless everyone says it just blows them away, I don't feel the urgency on this game.)

    Contrast that to when Tales of the Sword Coast came out, I remember going to the Electronics Boutique to buy it the first day.

    I don't know when I'll get it either; the unplayed games list of mine just keeps growing. I haven't even downloaded Wasteland 3 yet. But I have always preferred the turned-based RPGs (like Temple of Elemental Evil or the Wasteland games) to the real time with or without pause, so I hope that's true.

    Even though this game is the official "Baldur's Gate 3" I think I'm going to pass this game as this is not what I think Baldur's Gate should be and would rather play other games which consider themselves the "spiritual successor" of BG such as Pillars of Eternity or Pathfinder Kingmaker.

    Speaking about other games! I did tried playing Temple of Elemental once and luckily beat/finished the game. Damn its really hard to play it without a walkthrough. A very nice D&D game that uses the 3rd edition. only problem that its buggy and I had to make a couple of reloads to stabilize the game or even restart my PC.

    Also played the original wasteland 2 which is really unforgiving and pretty immersive game! haven't played a game before that was so bleak and hopeless.

    I'm finishing up another run at Temple of Elemental Evil with the Co8 mod myself. I'm basically getting ready for the final boss fight. And trying to imagine how to put together my next party.

    On topic though; I'm kind of excited about this BG3 game. I haven't finished any of the Larian games because sometimes their play balance is crap IMHO but their games are pretty fun. (I've never finished a BG game either - just started another one recently but I'm jumping around games atm.) But like Blackthorn I've got a long list of unplayed or barely played or unfinished games.

    Well poop; the game is out and my system doesn't meet minimum requirements. There's a promise of an extra companion for Early Access people and I want; but I'm not going to buy a game I can't play. And can't really buy a new machine just to play it. :p

    From what I saw the price is pretty exorbitant, especially considering that you're paying the full amount for essentially being a beta tester for the game company. 60 euro is a lot, more like what I'd expect from a collector's edition, not the base price.

    Apparently, if you like Divinity: Original Sin, this is a lot like that.

    Yeah I have the Divinity games; only got about halfway through the original before I got blocked by a fight I couldn't get through; the second one has a little bonus bit involving a blind cat that adopts you and is easily killed; but if you can get it through the first chapter alive it becomes useful later so I stymied myself by trying to figure out how to protect the cat.

    I like games with npc companions but I don't like games where there are so few. Like I said you are supposed to get an extra companion from Early Access which sounds cool to me even if I am being a beta tester. But now it's looking like the new character is a warlock that essentially they split off from the wizard character they've been showing in the vids of the game. The warlock is shown with a succubus/female demon; this looks like the background they were saying went with the wizard. I'm guessing all the companions have something like this going on.

    I'm not so worried about the price; it's steep but it's what a new game is going for pretty much. I'd normally rather wait for reviews though; but Larian has been solid so far. And the fact that they are putting it out now when they've been working on it for more than a year instead of having rushed it out last holiday season suggests that they will complete it; unlike the half-assed games that Hasbro has pushed out too soon like Sword Coast and Temple of Elemental Evil which both were abandoned before completion because of WOTC/Hasbro meddling.
