Sounds like it's just an excuse to buy time for them. Outside maybe China, the virus hasn't been interrupting anyone's work for more than a week or two so far, and for a company that's probably just…

It's funny how many companies (and forum posters) try to deny this. More respect to Owlcat (as if they needed anymore) for telling the truth on the topic, although I suppose it's true that it's in…

Swen has said that his favorite games of all time are Ultima VII and Ultima Underworld. But who knows for the rest of the employees.

Actually it was 2016, Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear :lol:

Yeah I mentioned this in a post (https://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1061597842&postcount=94) last week. Also keep in mind that Fallout 3 won GOTY here. Didn't seem like people had much…

Probably what she's thinking of is that in AD&D 2nd edition there were 4 metaclasses, Warrior, Wizard, Priest, and Rogue. Each had 2-3 classes that fell under it. 3rd edition did away with that…

I'd say Kingmaker was actually quite hard (relative to most RPGs these days) at higher difficulties. Even its default difficulty was tough for people who are used to RPGs that are auto-win at…

Party size limited to 4 is pretty terrible for a D&D game and probably the single worst thing I’ve heard about BG3 so far. Unless “followers” (mentioned in the linked tweet) can also act as real…

BG maps being hand-drawn is a widespread myth. They're actually done in 3D, pre-rendered, and then shipped with the game as 2D images. Sometimes tweaks are done by hand on the resulting 2D image. …

I dunno, unless Swen has been lying to us when he tells the story about how BG3 came about, then Google had nothing to do with it. It arose from discussions between Larian and WotC. Larian…

Yep. Fallout 3 was a much bigger departure from Fallout 2, than BG3 will be from BG2. Meanwhile, Fallout 3 won GOTY on this very site, and Fallout 3 wasn't even very good :lol: BG3 will be very…

Since it's past tense, it reads more like you're re-enacting what happened to you in the past. Maybe there's some in-game reason that explains why it's that way. If not, yeah it does seem pretty…

Looking at the blue panel in the center of the UI, the 1st screenshot looks like it's maybe RTwP, but paused. While the 2nd screenshot looks like turn-based mode (it says that at the top, plus maybe…

Looks isometric turn-based with the initiative portraits at the top left and an "AP" thing at the bottom. Maybe it's also got an RTwP option, though - the 2nd pic actually says "Turn Based" at the…

More than that, if you count stuff like Realms Beyond and Solasta.

But most of the 5 they're referring to here will likely be terrible action games, like the new Dark Alliance.

Same, and also it seems quite sexist to imply that women are more easily scared off of a forum by arguments over the relative merits of different games, than men would be.
