Never played this on early access. Wanted this game for years. Finally get it and I hate it. Only Hell Let Loose is a bigger disappointment.

been playing this game for over half a year with a bro completely blind all the way through in co-op, we're at Act 3 now and just finished that underwater timed escort mission section with all the Gondians, goddamn that was fun

I'm more interested in replaying BG3 to see what kind of mods modders can make with an official tool compared to reinstalling Shartfield just to have to PAY some shitty modders for their shitty Shartfield Paid Mods. Todd is insane to keep trying to force paid mods but each subsequent game he pushes it in are shittier and shittier and thus less deserving of money than the last.

Why would i ever play this shit over RDR2
>>
Why are Larian games always so front loaded into the first act? Both BG3 and Divinity 2 are identical in the sense that the game just takes a nose dive in quality as soon as you leave Act 1.
>>
>>679338335
played through it like 4 times. Lots of different dialogue, game and build options. its a one of a kind game. Dont know why /v/ has a hate boner against it
>>
>>679340583
the vertical slice and its consequences have been a disaster for the gamer race
>>
>>679340750
Your using the term "hate boner" belies what a fucking mouth-breathing retard you are. you should kill yourself immediately for the good of everyone who knows you.
>>
>>679340583
Its how they design games. They feel like those amateur movie directors that direct and shoot scenes in the order the movie will play out in so they get burnt out 1/3rd thru the process.

This game is botted to hell.
It is seen as a bastion to wokeness for ita box checking galore.

When I beat the game last August the ending felt unfinished. Apparently they’ve added more but at this point idgaf

>>679338335
it was fun up until act 3

That's pretty normal for CRPGs

I'm on my way to joining that 20%. Made it to the lower city a week ago and haven't played since. 0 drive to finish which is rare for me. so boring.

Bg3 isn’t a crpg it’s goyslop

Because it's barely a game.

Because CRPGs are boring as hell.

>REEEEEEEEE YOU USED A WORD I DON'T LIKE THAT MEANS I WIN

Do you zoomers really believe the retarded shit you spout?

I've been thinking about it for a bit, how can you fix Act 3?
>>
I just need it to coom
>>
>>679342053
Then what does that make all its CRPG contemporaries with even lower completion rates?
>>
>>679342972
I don’t debate most people don’t finish crpgs. But I think putting queer bear fucking simulator next to real crpgs does them a disservice
>>
>>679338335
The game is massive. It will take most people that don't play videogames all the time at least 6 months to a year or more to finish it.
>>
>>679338335
That's pretty normal for games, people just don't finish them

Act 3's narrative is weird. So at the end of Act 2 we have it set how we have the enemy army marching on Baldur's Gate, but everything is chill...relaxed...apparently, the army moves slow as molasses and isn't causing much of a stir? That's on the writing side. On the gameplay side, your build is finalized throughout the entirety of Act 3. You don't get a single level-up in Act 3 unless you skipped the ENTIRE Underdark and Grymforge segment of Act 1, maybe? So you're not doing anything new. No new skills, no new Feats, no new Spells. That makes it feel like a drag, I think, because at this point solving quests and winning fights isn't earning you anything. Reminds me of how shitty fighting in Obsidian's POE game was since they didn't earn XP from combat. Bleh. Maybe Larian should've upped the level cap by one more level? But D&D gets more fucking broken the higher level the players become, always has, it's actually a fundamentally flawed and shitty game system when you start looking at it with a critical eye.

I finished it multiple times on the hardest difficulty.

It's okay. I think my main issue is that with any RPG that's voice acted, it ends up extremely limited in what you can do or say, severely limiting actual Roleplaying elements or player freedom. The game itself isn't bad. Though Act 3 could certainly use a lot more content in general. Though I do appreciate that they didn't do a Pathfinder and have you extremely min/max your buffs / debuffing just to do high level content. That shit is extremely boring and takes the wrong approach to min/maxing or number crunching autism, which itself can be a lot of fun.
>>
>>679341932
You burned out. Give it a rest and then come back to the game. The game has too much to do so a lot of people brains melt when you get to the city of Baldur's Gate.
>>
>>679338335
That's a typical phenomenon with games in general, anon. Especially more so one as long/large as games like BG3.
>>
>>679342732
they should’ve had you backtrack a little bit to act 1 and 2 areas (or even put new areas on those maps) for some of the quests so everything wasn’t so clustered in a such a tight space.

the city just feels like you’re going building to building room to room like a housekeeper picking up the leftover bits of story.
>>
>>679343420
>I finished it multiple times on the hardest difficulty.
Before or after they added Honor Mode?
>>679343419
The army is moving slow because you killed the general leading it and Gortash and Orin are starting to have trouble controling the crown. Gortash also wants power, he does not want the destruction of the city(Orin on the other hand.........)
>>
>>679343647
Before and after. Twice without it, once with it. I would have done it again, but I just burned myself out. I haven't touched it since shortly after Honor mode was released.
>>
>>679343474
lolno. it's just boring dude. I finished kingmaker in one go and it's twice as long.
>>
>>679343419
>d&d gets more broken the higher level it is
no. it’s more broken the more it gets minmaxed and meta’d.
it’s a cooperative narrative game, it’s the dev’s job to facilitate as many possibilities as they can. balance is on the players and DM.
>>
>>679343842
>Kingmaker
>less boring
Now that's shitposting.
>>
>>679344623
I had less trouble skipping months at the end of kingmaker than I do even caring enough to open BG3 in act 3. I have no interest in the Gortash. I have no interest in the companions endings. I have no interest in the gith/mind flayers. Orin is the only interesting part but not interesting enough for me to give a shit.
>>
>>679338335
Nothing wrong with that, I played Morrowind a lot when I was a kid, never finished the main story, same with Oblivion.
