I was pretty geared up, until...turn-based. I just don't think I'm interested in that style of gameplay any longer. I'll stick with the Diablo and PoE style aRPG.

Looked great otherwise, however. Terrific artwork.

Never played the first two, any reason to before this comes out as far as story continuity?

They probably have some easter eggs in there to reward fans of the first, but I didn't see anything in the first 30 minutes which looked like a continuity issue.

I will probably get it but I have to say I haven't particularly enjoyed the last Larian games. They are TOO. DAMN. SLOW. Just moving around is a fucking nightmare of geriatric speeds.

I played Original Sin 2. Larian Studios know what they are doing. I read they are building off that foundation. This will be EXCELLENT. No doubt.

This one looked just like that. The combat looks cripplingly boring. The movement looked it as well.

Great artwork, but that only holds your interest for so long. Close to a hard pass here.

You going to use the Jewish vaccine when the apocalyptaronavirus hits? lolololol, It won't be a turn-based decision.

I like both styles of RPGs, for different reasons. Sometimes, I love the hyperkinetic chaos of a ARPG like Diablo, with swarms of enemies and flashy spells flying everywhere. Others, I like being able to sit back and relax a bit with a turn-based game. I'm not always in the mood for real-time stuff, and turn-based gives me the opportunity to focus on the game and something like a conversation with my wife, or a cat that decides it really[ needs to be up in my face at that precise moment.

I don't mind the combat. I don't care for "Did I talk to this person? Did I talk to them a second time? Let me run VERY slowly over here and talk to this person. Now let me 'run' at a glacial pace which makes me wish I were at least as fast as a snail, back to person 1 again and see if their dialog options changed," kind of gameplay from Divinity 1 and 2.

Game looks real good.. I hate when they have a preview like this and the music from the game is so loud you cant hear them talk.

I think most people will.

Or, let me state that at a pace akin to the combat:

I











think











most











people











will.
