I had such high hopes for this game, I hope they have updated a lot of the choices they had made a year or 2 ago...

Between the Game Awards reveal (probably the release date) and the next Panel from Hell (with the paladin, more than likely), it's going to be a good time!
 



Dataminers knew Minsc was going to be playable for a long time, so I wasn't surprised, but I'm certainly looking forward to it!

I wonder if Jim Cummings will voice him again, or if they might switch the VA...
It doesn't appear to be Jim in Neverwinter Online. I checked IMDB and it's not one of his credits. I know there were some accusations levelled against him a few years ago by his ex-wife in a divorce or custody battle which seemed to at least temporarily affect roles given to him. I don't think Minsc feels the same without him voicing him.

(Yeah, I'm weird, I follow voice actors and have an uncanny knack for identifying them from just a few words. I think it goes back to my days watching Transformers and G.I. Joe, and how the VAs played multiple characters in each series.)

I see some weird stuff he was implicated in, so if they dropped him it'd be understandable. Still, I also think his voice is unmistakable (and hello fellow person with a weird interest in VAs!) and any replacement will have big shoes to fill.

The sex scenes with Minsc are going to be weird, it's just weird to think of Minsc like that compared to Ashterion, Wyll, Shadowheart, Gale, and Lae'zel. I kind of hope Jahiera ends up playable too.

The fact the first act was full of random sex scenes was really telling on the 'priorities' of the game devs, while the gameplay and controls were amateur at best. Minsc and the Drow?! Cringe. :LOL:

lol how did you manage that? Steam declined my refund request 3 or 4 times.
Well, it helps when the entire platform goes belly-up. I'd only played the game for a week or two after it was released, but didn't ask for a refund (I knew what I was getting into buying an early-access product) and had assumed that it was basically lost money after it was announced that Stadia was closing down.

But no, I got a series of messages in November stating that Stadia were issuing refunds as part of the winding-down process and then it dropped into my account.

It's been so freakin' long since I played the first two that I barely remember them at all.

And why the hell are there sex scenes in the game? Seriously?!?

Heh, it's a bit recursive, but you can blame BG2 for that. There were text sex scenes (very tame) in BG2, which the modding community ran with. They've since become a big thing in every BioWare-style CRPG.

Personally, I'm in the "No time for love, Dr. Jones!" camp any more when it comes to it. Let me fight the baddies, save the world, etc, and leave the overwrought romantic subplots to other games.
