Fine, fine. Can I pet the dog, though?

Almost 10 minutes and not a single word on love triangles, orgies or harem.
Useless video.

I love how Swen is wering shorts beneath the armor.

Sniff, I like how in the background the actors are wearing masks, very 2020. All things together rather tastefully done. It even has hobbit jokes.

I always felt the one thing missing from Baldur's Gate was inter-species soft porn.

I'm 100% sure if the tech was up to par as it is today the original games would of have had it as well. Don't forget those games had romances. Just not graphic cut-scenes.

I've no problem with it, just that I find seeing some dude slipping a CGI elf a length in semi-graphic detail strangely hilarious.

More Dragon Age Origins vibes. Now with added Kama Sutra it seems.

I do like the BioWare approach to romance, and I feel the only reason bg 1 and 2 didn't have graphical scenes was technical limitations, alongside a 20 year older gamer culture and society in general.

This should be a good addition to the game, now it's up to the writers to make the romance options actually interesting and not just some excuse to show elftits and get more sales.

Tech be damned, BG2 has a mod that adds sex scenes. I tried it back when I was trying most mods for that game, and the writing was as purple and fanfic as you'd expect.

Let me guess text right? It couldn't be cinematic as BG 1&2 wasn't Dragon Age. Still if someone managed to make a mod with graphic cut-scenes I'd be very impressed.

I had to pause it at 7:08 to read all the storyboard annotations, which are pure poetry:

Truly I will never view romance in quite the same way again.

That's not romance.
Looks as if someone is giving birth.

This is starting to remind me of the Bad Sex in Fiction Award.

I'm wondering if they'll keep inter-class romance or if they'll have to ban that to avoid interracial polemics. It's become such a taboo these days
