I've decided to wait until the final release. Maybe I'll buy the game right before it comes out of Early Access. I don't like to play a game which I can't finish. :) Only the first act will be available in the EA.

I hear ya, I generally feel the same way. I just feel so invested in this one that I want to be a part of Early Access and be able to give them feedback where I can.

I'm also just way too damn excited for this game to be able to hold off on it, too, but yeah.

I'm actually glad they're going Early Access since I'm purist and imho story of Baldurs Gate ended with Throne of Bhaal.
But this gives me a chance to follow where the game is going and is it only Baldurs Gate for nostalgia reasons.
I do like and trust Larian to be faithful with the licence.

That's very cool. The language they used in the AMA left me under the impression the acts would function like D:OS, where you can't backtrack to previous act locations. This looks more in line with the original BG games. UGH the excitement is too strong. And I have to wait until Wednesday to play it :(

I'm waiting for final release. It'll be a better game after all the improvements that Larian will make until they release the 1.0 version next year or so. And of course I won't have to wait for next chapters. Nevertheless I'll probably watch some streams from the game because I'm curious how it looks at this stage of development. :)

So did someone play the game already? What are your feelings? I watched some streams from it (CohhCarnage and a few local streamers) and I have a feeling that it's a great RPG, but not necessarily a great Baldur's Gate game. The setting is the same, D&D implementation seems very good (I'm not familiar with the 5th edition though), but it lacks BG atmosphere. The closest thing to BG, when it comes to this factor is IMHO Neverwinter Nights 2. I don't know where the problem lies precisely. Maybe it's due to graphics and that specific Divinity feeling that the BG3 resembles. Anyway I'm sure that I'll spend dozens of hours in this game, when it's finally released!

I'm loving it so far. I can say with certainty that this most definitely doesn't feel like Divinity 3. I am seeing some definite hints towards the Baldurs Gate connection, although right now the story just doesn't get deep enough to say for sure. I get why they don't want to let the cat out of the bag if I'm reading those hints right. I think my biggest complaint right now is that it feels like a very watered down DnD system, but I figure that's a combination of 5e and the game being largely incomplete. But the story so far definitely feels like a DnD campaign. I'm loving the combat, the cinematics and dialogue (although I hope they don't go this route with their next Divinity game, I do appreciate the minimalist style of dialogue that Divinity has). So far it's exceeding my expectations for most things, I think classes will shape up a lot better as well as the things that currently fall short of DnD mechanics but I suppose we shall see.

I like how the game looks but I just need something in order to feel like a Baldur's Gate sequel.
Gimme Minsc and Boo, gimme a Bhallspawn easter egg, gimme Jaheira, Viconia or Keldorn.

Anything so I can know this is somewhat connected to the games I love.

Larian is doing a Panel from Hell 2 tomorrow, where they plan to discuss some things including the upcoming Patch 4. There are some secrets they plan to reveal regarding what to expect with the patch, but they'll also be talking about new spells, new tieflings, and some other stuff.

Based on the graphic below, my guess is they're bringing us the druid class.

So this game will have at least one Towers of Hanoi puzzle somewhere, right? Bioware stuck it in just about every series they made. They put a gravestone in for it somewhere in Dragon Age: Origins (I think) but put the puzzle into Dragon Age: Inquisition's Descent DLC.
