I am fine with the streams and I actually enjoyed the last one, but I'd absolutely love to have a detailed list of each and every change.

I'm with you, I much prefer a straightforward written list over combing through hours of streamed 'entertainment' to find the information I'm interested in.

It probably is a minority view, but I also vastly prefer reading to watching.

The user Niara had a very competent write up summarizing why a lot of people were definitely not happy with it: https://forums.larian.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Main=96429&Number=757338#Post757338

Incidentally that was also more or less the time I sort of give up on my best expectations for this game and I decided to settle for way more modest outcomes.


Party control in Baldur's Gate 3 is a complete mess that begs to be addressed. SAY NO TO THE TOILET CHAIN

Respectfully disagree ...
I enjoy those shows, they are funny, they are informative, and as far as i can say it seem like at least Swen is really enjoing making them. :P
Also, im a big fan of free will, so i believe that grown people should and will be able to decide what they want to do with their time. laugh

You're not in the minority here, but for players overall? Definitely. People seem to love having hype over substance. I'd much rather just have a boring list, or hell, I'd really like a video with a dev just going through the changes one at a time and what they're thinking currently without trying to be HYPE!!! all the time.

As stated, a sloppy Pannel that matches a sloppy game designed for the <millions>.
It lacks direction and vision, therefore is hard to be hopeful.

One thing is amazing news. Baldurs gate 2 and the modding community still going strong.
Building new quests, new playable characters, tons of content!

Another is Pathfinder Wrath of the rightheous. Turning out to be everything BG3 should of been, minus the cringy cinematic dialogues. Soon to be released.

I'm waiting for Larian people to start TEASING Patch #5 on twitter and then starting the two-weeks countdown for the public community update, followed by the actual patch MAYBE one week later.
See you in a while.

I've noticed that "soon" tends to mean a much larger period of time for video game companies running an Early Access than it does for the average person.

Unless you're the Solasta devs, in which 'soon' usually meant 'less than a week before we announce an update that was at most 2 weeks away from releasing'. Though the devs there make it very clear that they're working within reasonable limitations and not shooting for the moon, which is a rarity in this industry.

Then again, they also might have adopted that approach because they saw quite a number of people raging about the wait for BG3's patch 4 release within their own discord, and decided they didn't want any of that business.

E3 is June 12 to 15, so perhaps the twitter teasing for patch 5 will commence next week! celebrate

Wracking my brain on this one as well.

we have:
Genocide
Torture
Cannibalism
Slavery
Whatever is going on with Volo and that Goblin.
Forced impregnation
Kidnapping
Murder
Theft
Debauchery
Alcoholism
Racism
baby eating

...Off the top of my head. I just think we have become desensitized to what constitutes 'adult'.

Agreed, it's already pretty dark as it is!!
You encounter a talking brain in half a human skull on the operating table in the first 3 minutes of the game. Definitely not for kids.

The point is probably more that you are never really thinking about those things. They are presented for a shock effect and then they are gone and never mentioned again.
