So you lot think Larian can actually pull this off?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larian_Studios

EDIT: I decided to remove my old stance on the matter after i realized that Wizards of the Coast is helping Larian with BG3.
You can read about it here: https://fextralife.com/baldurs-gate-3-interview-with-larian-and-wizards-of-the-coast/
This fact definitely does change things for me.
It still could be a fuck up though, like Larian themselves state in the interview, but having Wiz along for the ride definitely improves my morale a great deal.

I wouldn't call Divinity series "meh", but I fully agree, that it "doesn't even begin measuring up to BG", so I share your worries, but still have some hope.

I wouldn't call Divinity series "meh"

But it is meh, sure perhaps not THE ENTIRE series, but most of em are.
Take Original Sin as example, the last boss went down under 1 minute, and i soloed the entire game with just 2 characters due to certain perks sure but still.... Each area was basically grind fest, mmorpg style. The quests bored me to tears. Plus the game was way too short.
The only fun thing they had there was that Rhyming Wizard.
Seriously whoever created that Wizard is a genius, it was good that they decided to continue with him in their other games, great decision indeed.

What difficulty did you play the game? Because it's not an easy game at all. Harder than BG games, for sure (you critique OS last boss, when BG1 last boss was a joke). If you dodn't play in tactician, then yeah, I guess the game is not hard. Tactician is notably harder, even adding new mechanics to bosses.

Highest i can, it's how i always roll.
Unless it's something like mass effect... i don't ever want to make the mistake of playing on highest dif in a game that only beefs hp and damage of the mobs to a ridiculous level and then lets you tackle that with weapons and armor that were meant for normal dif lol it took me literally ages to drag my battered body to the finishing line and win it anyway.

doesn't even begin measuring up to BG.

Can you guys elaborate on that? Do you mean narrative-wise or mechanics-wise or challenge-wise? It's been a long time since I played BG2 and never played any Divinity although they're said to be very good games.

Larian got cocky, and when their half-assed something comes out they better be ready to swallow a lot of shit indeed.

Tbh, you seem to have made up your mind already about that. From this sentence alone speaks so much doubt and negativity that I can only assume your past with Larian is one with nothing but disappointments. And if you start in a frame like that then nothing positive can come out of it, let alone satisfaction.
I'm pretty sure they're doing the best they can to create a great game. And we all should be be prepared and accept that they will not deliver a BG2 with another story and new technology. Because they're neither the old Bioware nor Black Isle.

So, to answer your question: I don't know what to think since I haven't played their games. But from what I heard I'm willing to believe they can pull this off. And this belief stands until proven otherwise. I'm more of an optimist here.

They are good, but they're not memorable. My problem with it is that days after finishing the game, I can't remember any single character besides those in my party. The bad guys are just either transcendent eternal beings/gods/something equally big that storywise, can't compare to Sarevok killing your mentor and taunting you all the way, framing you for murder and generally screwing with your progress, and even at the end, he's just a very good fighter. The same with Irenicus, he's a really good mage that just misses his girlfriend and is willing to kill everyone because of it. You have companions that can kill each other depending on how you do certain quests. There's a dragon that hires you to kill him just because he likes the challenge. I remember no such thing in either DOS1 or 2. Though it might be because I've played BG so many times that I can still remember lines 15 years after playing it for the last time.

TL;DR: DOS1 and 2 are great games, but not great stories.

I'd argue that DA:Origins, the mass effect series and KOTOR had on par character design, and similar use of villains that had clear, understandable and even sensible motivations for their evil/stupid deeds (loghain, howe, the illusive man, everyone in KOTOR). And SURPRISE! Those were all made by the sameish company.

Fallout 1 and 2 were good too.

Narrative mostly, but based on the "challenge" i had from the last boss in Original Sin, also their other games... i'd say combat could use work, too. I like it when the game is actually trying to murder and/or skin me alive. But i haven't felt that level of intensity from any of the Divinity games.

Tbh, you seem to have made up your mind already about that.

I may sound like that on occasion but i always give everyone a chance. A chance to prove me wrong.
Plus i doubt my reaction is a big surprise, it's BG we're talking about after all.
Not just some random unknown game, a legend is at stake here.
I want them to succeed, but i also fear they don't have what it takes.
Well, i suppose they at least had the quad to challenge themselves, nobody else tried till them.

Thank you for these insights.

I saw a bit of revealed gameplay today and I presume you're not gonna be happy with them... It's much closer to the actual D&D system with it's round-based combat than the real-time combat with pause in the BG games. Although I didn't see anything relating to story and character design or challenges Larian seems to follow their known style.

No, i am actually quite fine with turn-based combat.

BG1 and BG2 were probably the Games of the Year for me. Even though it's quite a long time since their release (and I've played them, when they were released), I still vividly remember a lot of things about them. Divinity games, that I've played, I have almost erased from my memory, except a bookmark, that they were OK (actually, OK enough, that I would like them also in my library, if I'm in a mood to RPG, but that's still a huge difference for me). It's Diablo deserving GotY in this category, and Divinity felt to me like a mere shadow in the comparison.

Trying is actually quite risky, when creating classics' sequels. Even if they make a game, that is quite good on it's own terms, it may easily still disappoint the old fans of the originals, and collapse under the weight of their criticism. This actually may be the reason for which Brian Fargo and inExile (which are closest to original devs now, and create similar games) have not decided to purchase the rights from practically defunct Interplay, and those rights went to Larian (or whoever pays them to create the sequel).

Personally, I think waiting is the right thing to do. Heck, I HATED DOOM but I will still wait for DOOM Eternal before judging it, even if it was the same game with the Predator suit.
And something to keep in mind is that companies change over time. Current day Obsidian is not the same Obsidian that made F: NV. People leave and come a lot.

Just don't judge a book by it's cover, and give them a chance.

It's fine to feel skeptical, really. I know that you mean well, that you want the new game to be as good as, or even better, than the older games. But, I guess we will have to wait and see. The problem with these types of games is that teasers or trailers don't give you a good idea about how the actual game will be, story-wise, and that's what matters the most in these types of games. I remember the F: NV trailers and teasers, they gave you NO idea about what game is it going to be like, or how is the story, etc. Just some music over a guy shooting and blowing stuff up, you know?

TL;DR, it's fine to feel skeptical. The expectations for Baldur's Gate 3 are very, very high, and it's normal to think that they may or may not reach said expectations.

Drawing any definite conclusions at this point is way too early.
I can only say that i am very happy that Wizards of the Coast is helping Larian with BG3, with them on board the probability that BG3 will be a fuck up decreases significantly.
I have noticed that quite a few fans are not happy with the fact that BG3 will have turn-based combat instead of pause like we used to.
Personally i am fine with turn based combat provided it will be harder than what was shown in that interview video (the enemies were getting one-shot in it).

I'm quite optimistic about it but then I thought that DOS:2 actually interpreted parts of the pen-and-paper game better than BG and IWD did. Larian approached WotC years ago for the IP but only received it relatively recently after WotC saw what they did with DOS and DOS:2 so it is possible that it will go more in the vein of Divinity than BG. On the other hand, several of the head honchos over at Larian are huge BG nerds who loved the games, so they likely have a lot of the same desires as fans.

I suppose we'll see tomorrow, during PAX when they give us a look at the game play. Tbf, I also recently replayed BG and while it was a great game, some of "perfection" came from nostalgia glasses. Their hardest job will simply be that the fan base is quite split over what they want BG3 to look like. No matter what they do, a substantial part of the BG fan-base will be disappointed simply because we all want different things. But whether it looks more like DOS or like the old-school D&D games or something completely new, I think that the people involved really do love the IP and want to create a good game and not simply something that will make money, which is more than a lot of recent games can say.

I'm a pretty big BG 2 fan and I think it is a good thing that they'll try it. As long as Larian follows the BG principles (well written dialogues and stories/lores, occasional hard fights and tons of player choices) and don't rush or get too greedy, the game will probably come out at least good.

I'm with OP on this.

Although I would go further than just calling Divinity games 'meh'. 'Meh' is something bearable, but not memorable. Games made by Larian are, frankly, were just bad so far. The old Divinities were boring games with almost nonexistent storylines. OS was presented as a huge improvement over that but alas, it turned out the same. Much better, almost perfect gameplay mechanics, yes, but still a soulless unimaginative creation with paperthin characters and shallow dialogues. I even tried Dragon Commander to see if perhaps a game of a different genre in the same series could be more engaging, but it was a disaster as well. I've heard OS2 was a huge improvement over the first one, but I'm extremely reluctant to try it considering previous experiences.

Before any of you deem me as a simple hater, I must say I actually think the first Baldur's Gate wasn't much better than Divinity games. Also boring, also rather shallow. Couldn't even finish it from the first two attempts. Baldur's Gate 2, on the other hand, is a masterpiece. So it is entirely possible for Larian to pull this one off. I'll tip my hat off to them if they do.

I'm with you on the BG1 being shallow and boring. I have also played the entire series more than 10 times, so make of that what you will.

Non magic combat was awful, I still remember them swinging at each other and reading "miss miss miss miss miss hit for 2 damage miss". Even spells were kind of meh, as you'd end up casting magic missile most of the time to avoid spamming rest.

I think while Larian nailed RPG turn based combat pretty well, even if it's open to a lot of abuse with op combinations. My only issue with both OS games was pacing, and you could say pretty much the same with BG2 and the grand quest to buy boat tickets.

Heh. Laughed hard at "the grand quest to buy boat tickets". But to me it was fine; I think too many games nowadays make it possible to finish the main quest in like, 10 hours (Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire comes to mind, most of the open world stuff like Skyrims or new Fallouts, etc), so I actually prefer having a lot stuff to do before proceeding to the main quest than vice versa.

I think at that point in time Minsc and Boo have their stone statues in Baldur's Gate City :)

"Around 1409 DR, the merchant Orburt Lewel ordered the construction of a 9-foot (2.7-meter)-tall statue and pedestal in the Wide in honor of Minsc, who had saved Lewel's life. The statue, known as the Beloved Ranger, depicted Minsc cupping Boo in his hands. It was a popular landmark and meeting point in the busy commercial district.[10][11][12] Unbeknownst to anyone at the time, the statue was actually the real Minsc and Boo under the effects of petrification magic.[13]

In 1479 DR, a group of teenagers vandalized the Beloved Ranger statue, breaking off its hands and Boo. The vandals were later apprehended and the statue was fixed.[11]

Sometime in the 1480s DR, the Beloved Ranger was accidentally struck by a wild magic surge caused by the wild mage Delina, as a result of an attempt to cast a spell at an attacking gargoyle. The surge dispelled the petrification effect, returning Minsc and Boo to life. The pair joined up with the thieves Krydle and Shandie to battle the Cult of the Dragon. Coran, now a member of the Parliament of Peers, was the only person who recognized Minsc as anyone but someone who was dressed like the statue.[1][13] "

Yeah the funny thing is that canon protagonist exists now but at start they wanted him to be half-elf warrior but stayed with human warrior.

I still prefer my Dwarf Warrior or in Enhanced Edition my Half-Orc Warrior/Rogue :P

Also funny thing that you were a mercenary fighter for 8 years and yet you are still level 1 0 xp when you start the game :P|

"In 1368 DR, Abdel gained work in Baldur's Gate on a caravan bound for Candlekeep, his childhood home, and was reunited with his adopted father, who asked Abdel to accompany him to the Friendly Arms Inn to gather some information.[8] On the journey along the Coast Way,[9] Gorion and Adbel were ambushed by a group of mercenaries that included Eagus and Kamon. During the battle, Abdel killed the mercenaries, but Gorion was hit in the eye by a crossbow bolt and died."

Well that is not how it was in game... xD
We did run away and Gorion was killed by Sarevok with a sword.

And our main hero f*cking Jaheira while she was married and in love with Khalid is also so so so wrong :P

But the part about Bohdi is pure nonsense as there is no citations there to support it :P

But yeah later canon protagonist fights and is killed by Viekang or maybe we kill him and then the winner transforms into a Slayer because of all the Bhaal essence and later is killed by adventure party (people playing) A Murder In Baldur's Gate and that event resurrects Bhaal.

So all in all becoming a god in BG2 is the better option than what is cannon :P

Also someone made a good point:

"Can't help but notice that "A Murder in Baldur's Gate" completely invalidated the ending of ToB, since the Solar straight up said the only surviving Bhaalspawn are Imoen, who willing gives up her essence, and Gorion's Ward, who either gives up their essence or claims it to become the new Lord of Murder, like a boss.

Fast forward 12 years and WotC shits all over the ending by saying "Oh wait, Viekang is still putzing around and wants to get his murder on with Abdel." Nevermind that the Solar told us all the other bhaalbabies besides GW and Imoen were pushing up daisies. "

Most importantly for me is, they don't use turn based combat (i'm tired of it).
Secondly: Their writing style has hopefully improved a lot since D:OS, because it was so terribly cheesy. The only game from Larian i really liked, was Divine Divinity.

But overall i think: they can't create a decent game that fits my taste.

The Divinity games were always meant to be a cheesy kind of parody RPG. They were never meant to be serious. I hope it is turn based. It's based on a table top RPG system that is mean to be played turn-based. D&D never felt right as a real-time cRPG system. I like to control my party in combat, and with RTwP, it is so frustrating. Unless you turn the difficulty down and let it run itself, which isn't fund, combat ends up taking longer than if it were turn-based because I spend so much time pausing and fighting with the game trying to get my party to do what I want them to do. I kind of felt that WotC picked Larian to do BG3 because Larian knows how to pull off great turn-based combat. Perhaps they can do both like Obsidian did Pillars 2.

Most of the complaints about the recent Pathfinder RPG is the real-time combat not working like it should. They had to break some rules to make it work in real-time. One of the most popular mods for Pathfinder is one that makes it turn-based and re-implements things that were cut to make it work real-time. At least they've listened and announced the next game in the series is going to have a turn-based option.

Wizards of the Coast seem to think they can pull it off. Larian wasn't the only developer to make a pitch to them for BG3. I don't know all of the devs that tried to get the BG3 contract, but out of all developers that applied, Larian was chosen by WotC to make BG3.

Perhaps, if we're lucky, BG3 will actually succeed in instilling some patience into the typical hyper-type gamers of current generation.
