Baldur's Gate 3


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

This game is already out on PC and is due to be released on PS5 in September this year. XboX has to wait longer though because of their parity rule across all their consoles.

Anyways - this was developed by Larian Studios who did Divinity 2 and other games, so my hopes are high. The first two BG games were developed by BioWare and followed the whole D&D rules and I am assuming this does as well. As a big fan of the early BioWare days and Divinity 2, my hopes are very high for this and I know I'm going to play as a warlock, sorcerer or a ranger.

Started it yesterday. Haven't played previous BG (or any D&D) games before, only used to begin Neverwinter Nights 2 years ago but dropped it soon, don't remember already why.

Here's my Seldarine (Eilistraeean) Drow Bard Relontar Helvimtor. The one from my RL/online D&D campaign.

Нет описания.

The game feels great so far. Runs just perfectly on my PC (Ryzen 7 3700X / GeForce RTX 3050). And yes, all D&D rules are followed. The only thing that confused me is long rest - it teleports you and your party to the camp.

I stayed up until 2 AM playing it yesterday, and looking forward to continue this evening! :D

Ahhh I'm jealous! Can't wait! This is what I have in mind.

Will post pictures when the game is released for us PS5 folks.

 

FEMALE PLAYTHROUGH - Melisandre Targaryen

Drow or Normal Elf

Sorcerer or Warlock

Noble

Will be mostly a good character - probably something like chaotic good

 

MALE PLAYTHROUGH - Sebastian Blackthorn

Human 

Fighter or Ranger

Criminal

Will most likely be an asshole

Perks of being the PC player :P Also mad respect to the devs/publishers for making this game available for purchase in Russia, as well as full translation (well, besides audio, but it doesn't matter much).

I'm thinking of doing a female playthrough later too. Most likely it'll be my other Drow character, Vhaeraunite Ranger Maytana Hun'neld. Like her deity, she's Chaotic Neutral, with a bit of asshole personality, so it's gonna be interesting.

I gotta say, I’m surprised with how much sex there is in this game lol. I’m especially surprised with how far they’re willing to go - is the same studio who did Divinity 2? They’ve come a long way.
 

Spoiler

The bear scene hahaha

I know it’s supposed to be reflective of how crazy DND campaigns can get, but was not expecting actual bear and MC sex.

I heard you can fuck a bear

 

It's based on Dungeons & Dragons which is made by Wizards of the Coast. The game itself is made by Larian, known for Divinity series.

About bear, it was featured in the trailer and became viral. :D I think I've met that bear at this point already (it's a Druid actually), but nothing has happened between us, haha :D

How goes the adventure folks?

@OfficerDonNZ@Dementor

Didn't get time to play in the recent days. But it goes well enough for me. I've explored Underdark, found a cool Eilistraeean singing sword, just perfect for my character, defeated goblins and duergars... Now going to look for githyanki camp. And I guess I'll be ready to move on to Act 2 then.

Oh, and still didn't have a single romance scene! Karlach keeps telling me she "too hot" and that I need more infernal iron, Lae'zel only gives promises, and Shadowheart keeps her distance as well :D Well, Gale and Halsin (aka that very bear) gave some hints, but Relontar is straight :D You'll have to wait for your time when I'll be replaying as a female character, guys :D

I can't choose between Gale and Astarion : ( Game coming on PS5 woo. Not too long now especially with early access!

Oh man, was watching some clips again and I can't stop laughing. I love how crazy it is. Reminds me of the wild mods of Neverwinter Nights (BioWare).

Haha :D Yesterday I had to politely reject Gale :D but then Karlach made the following night hot in all meanings :D By the way, first romance/sex scene ever for me, and I'm in the middle of Act 2 already. Who said there's too much of it in this game, huh?

Reject Gale? Gasp!

Right now I'm leaning more into Astarion and I think he'd get on fine with my ranger girl.

 

Okay. I've decided my characters!

 

Female Playthrough 

Melisandre Targaryen

Elf (Wood Elf) though still might opt for a Drow - need to see what they look like in game 

Ranger (Sub-class Gloomstalker)

Outlander

 

 

Male Playthrough

Sebastian Blackthorn

Tiefling (Mephistopheles Tiefling) 

Paladin (Sub-class Oathbreaker)

Soldier

I haven't seen anything of these :D I'm not playing the Dark Urge, and I told Astarion to fuck off after he tried to bite me in the dead of the night. Also I still haven't used Lump's horn :D managed to fight all battles in Act I without her help, wonder if it's gonna work in Acts 2 or 3 still...

But yeah all these vids show that Baldur's Gate 3 is the game of endless possibilities. Almost like the real world.

Yeah, was gonna say the bear is actually a druid. When I saw the clip I was like O.O I want this game.
