    I don't expect seeing gameplay until next E3 now.. Release is currently scheduled for November 2019, this year! It has been announced that BG3 will be available when Google Stadia launches, which is where I'm getting the November date from.

    Yeah, with Stadia, you will be fine. Any platform with a Chrome browser. That's actually great for Mac users (and for those with a low-end PC). On a side note, there's the Microsoft E3 press conference within 2 hours, if the game is planned on consoles, we'll probably see a bit more. Otherwise, E3 is this week so I'm pretty sure we'll see some gameplay if it's planned for this year. I did not listen to the announcement, who you mind expanding a bit on how does Stadia works? Is it like Steam or other services like GOG? I have an old PC and was kinda saddened to see that I was going to miss that game, but you seem to say that low-perfomance PC should be able to run it?

    CRPG are more difficult than a JRPG (generally). I had some difficulties with the difficult start of D:OS1 myself (I was trying to min/maxing too much) but the second is way better start if you want to try it. Also, maybe those kind of games weren't for you, that's totally ok. As far as I liked CRPG back in the days, I don't have enough free time anymore to try a battle for 3-4 times. One's tastes change over time too. Case in point, I loved JRPGs, CRPGs, and MMORPGs growing up. I still think they're some of the best games I've ever played. But these days, I'd rather play something faster-paced, like an action, adventure, or platforming game. It's not necessarily because I have less time either. I just have less patience with the slower elements of RPG games (inventory management, travel time, getting lost, etc.).

    I don't think all the studios are working on ONE game though. There's a semi RTS with D:OS 2 characters coming later this year called Fallen Heroes. And obviously, they are probably working on a D:OS3 as well. If BG3 is coming this year, it will be a D:OS2 DnD 5E skin in my opinion, unless they are working from the ground up for this game (that means it's been years in development without any leaks). Who knows :) That not the size of Larian Studios, that is the size of the BG3 Staff according to Larian Studios. It's been in development for 2 years now. The only leak was Brian Fargo who suggest BG was being made, but not by whom. I think a thread compiling everything known from articles and interviews would be helpful for people. There will some Larian Systems in the game in addition to the D&D 5e systems, like environmental interaction/story-telling. I think DD: OS2 had a little over half the Devs that BG3 will have roughly. Like 170 roughly not including playtester...

    You might argue that why they chose those developers in the first place? Larian made D:OS2, probably the best CRPG ever made. I'm hyped as hell (no pun intended). They don't actively court developers, they can only choose those who come to them with money to offer. This would have been right after they took a risk on a newer company and the result crashed and burned.

    Thank you both. I've only read the first two and following to the reading order, I shouldn't even read those two according to the author himself. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/12/Discworld_Reading_Order_Guide_3.0_%28cropped%29.jpg If it wasn't that expensive in French, I would buy them all. Guards Guards and Mort are the best starting places, in my opinion. Small Gods and Wyrd Sisters are good too. The first two books are hilarious, but they're pure farce (in the style of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). That's an upside to some people and a downside to others (personally, I really like them). And yes, I highly recommend Discworld. I didn't discover the series until 2015, but I've read all 41 books since then and re-read almost half of those. I imagine it's something I'll be returning to every now and then for the rest of my life.

    I thought Terry Pratchett was writing funny books, is there really a great story ? Which arc? It's a very long series. Over time, Pratchett goes from writing funny books, to writing great story arcs. By the end, it's all pretty amazing stuff, worthy of your best fantasy series story arcs. Not as many people have read those because there are so many books, and the first dozen or so are mostly funny books. In fact some would say it doesn't really approach that part of the series until the first TWO dozen books are done or so. But yes, the Witches part of the series, and the City Guard part of the series, become pretty amazing storytelling. So does Tiffany Aching, Death (or at least the Susan Sto Helit part of Death), and Moist von Lipwig. Rincewind is probably the least serious of the books, despite starting with him.

    But I don't want to :'( Not sure why though, I guess it's all the books I have, like I feel betrayed, it's weird I know. Not weird. I completely understand. They are ready to move on, but you're not. Games are an emotional buy-in sometimes - especially when you buy a lot of the same edition from the same company. If you still love the current edition, you don't want to leave unless there is a better option. We'll see if PF2 is one. (I don't think it will be, but maybe I'll be surprised.) I'm not sure in this case there will be as many along for the ride to PF2 as there was for PF1. PF1 was better than the current D&D (4E) by a wide margin for a lot of people. I'm not sure PF2 will hold that same advantage over D&D 5E. Ending PF1 provides an opportunity for some to return to the D&D fold. (At a time when D&D is seriously kicking butt!)
