I'm beginning to prefer Baldur's Gate 3 on PS5

Is the PS5 version of Baldur's Gate 3 any good? Yes. In some ways.

Awesome to hear. Will pick it up tomorrow!

derek310d ago

Got it and I'm playing it. Great game fun to play in co-op

myfathersbastard310d ago

I’m playing it on PS5. Can’t compare it but it plays great. No complaints.

RhinoGamer88310d ago

All, I am a fairly newb with fantasy RPG games. I dropped Diablo 4 after 20 hours due to the grind/repetition. Can BG3 be played and understood by a novice?

franwex310d ago

Probably not by the sound of things. I think it’s a pretty hardcore game. Similar to souls games, but for the crpg genre. I’m looking forward to it myself.

Lorshna2022310d ago

Its easy to understand and pick up as its a self contained story. It also has difficulty levels to suit you so even that can be adjusted to fit your ability. I'm absolutely rubbish at strategy and I found it no problem on normal difficulty.

Daeloki310d ago

It's a fairly complex system, but it does do a pretty good job explaining how everything works. I honestly think it looks more comlicated than it really is. Takes a while to get used to, but once you do, it's infinitely better than Diablo 4 content wise (I played it too and dropped it too after some 20h xD).

Grilla310d ago

I played Diablo 3 for 2 years, hundreds of hours. Thought I’d love Diablo 4 then came to the conclusion the story sucks, the quests suck, the loot sucks and it’s super grindey.

I’m a newb in Bg3 but I’m liking it a lot. Playing it in easy mode. I’ll get good at some point.

Diablo and starfield are basically the same game you’ve played before with a new coat of paint on it. Bg3 is on a different level.

Daeloki310d ago

The great thing is you can just up the difficulty mid-game if it starts feeling too easy, and there's no penalty.
Also, in case you didn't know, since multiclass is locked out from easy, if you wanna multiclass: when you're about to do your level up selections change to normal, do your multiclass leveling, and then change back to easy.

PunksOnN4G310d ago

Same here i No lifed diablo 3 pc,ps3,ps4 Bought it 3 diff times and puts 100s of hours in each... Diablo 4 is soo slow but what kills me is WHY IS THE CAM SOO ZOOMED IN U CANT EVEN SEE HALF THE TIME WTF IS HITTING YOU OFF SCREEN ITS ANNOYING AND IM NOTGONAN PLAY THAT.

gpimlott310d ago

I usually hate turn-based games and I usually hate CRPGs, but this game made me change my mind entirely. So I really recommend trying it. Just start on easy mode and if you feel its too easy, change it up

anast310d ago

Play on explorer or balanced mode first and you should be alright.

I'm 80 hours in on pc (a mxture of both single player and some multiplayer in a different "story"). I'm picking up the ps5 version to play with the wife in the living room with the big sound system. I fucking love this game. Never have a played an rpg with so many options. It's ridiculous. You can push people off cliffs!

Grave310d ago

Same boat here. Played 65 hours solo on Steam . Went to couch coop on PS5 with my wife. We are now 15hrs in on PS5 and couch coop makes this amazing game even better when you can share the adventure with a partner sitting next to you. Simply incredible, we are loving it together!

jznrpg310d ago (Edited 310d ago )

Oh yeah I forgot about couch co-op maybe I can get my wife to play with me

anast310d ago

It runs great and looks great. I went with a Druid this time and I am having fun.

repsahj310d ago

I tried a wizard for my first character, maybe I'll try Druid next time. Is Ranger any good in this game?

anast310d ago

I'm not sure. I don't think I have ever tried a ranger in any RPG...maybe I will have to try on my next play through.

Goosejuice310d ago

I have not played ranger but I'm playing in a group and one is a ranger, she enjoys it quite a bit. U get a pet that lvls ith u and adds armor as it lvls up which is cool. So eventually u have an armored bear.

The Indie Genre Has No Exact Boundaries Anymore

In recent times, the Indie genre has lost its charm by becoming a loose term. There are no borders to decide whether a title is Indie or not.

The defining factor is creative freedom. If you answer to a publisher, and they push ideas, changes and their own vision, then you are not indie. If you have a small publishing agreement that brought in funding, but the publisher's stake in the company or project is not large enough to give them creative reign, then you are still indie bc you still remain independent of control.

It's that easy. Indie means independence of creative control, not independence from funding. Many times small time publishers of indies will take control of only the marketing side of things, which is usually very much appreciated. I've worked in this side of gaming.

*It's the same thing in indie films or indie music really, with varying levels of quality and funding. It's about retaining the creator's original vision without unwanted meddling.

Vits1d 14h ago

Unfortunately, yes. Indies were originally games that were outside of the main market, created by studios with no ties to publishers or larger companies. Then, at some point, they started to include pretty much every game that looks smallish. And even that went the way of the dodo, and budget size started to be compared, which we often don't know; now it's pretty much whatever you are feeling that day. Some will say that it's about creative freedom, which is also basically impossible to measure in most games and could very well mean that a bunch of smaller projects by Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, etc., are actually indies.

So at the end of the day. It's another label that has very little meaning.
