    I am replaying the Mass Effect trilogy (Legendary Edition or whatever it's called). I was considering to make an exception for Baldur's Gate 3 regarding my policy not to buy games on launch until I've read my magazine reviews and waited for three months but I probably won't.

    Actually surprised at some of the Steam statistics for this thing, I had never imagined that this would have such broad appeal. Even with the name recognition.

    Indeed. These are remarkable sales and concurrent player numbers and the game looks more intruiging than the milquetoast "let's take no risks" Diablo IV.

    Baldur's Gate III is being happy that you finally managed to defeat a big-ass spider. :ROFLMAO:

    LOL!

    I have to say that this is the kind of stuff that has made the experience very fun (never even occurred to me that you could do this).

    Only about a dozen hours into it now but it has been fun so far.

    Took me a bit of time to figure out Ethel. And that's a boss battle at the very beginning of the game.

    Made it to the Underdark. Only just arrived there but it looks huge.

    BTW:

    Does anyone know if you have to do the Githyanki crèche first? I don't want to lock myself out of that questline by finishing the Underdark region first.

    is it like Skyrim where you play 'through' a storyline and then it ends?

    Pretty much yeah. Though apparently it is unprecedented in terms of possible quest lines and variations. The Underdark is still very much in act I of the game.

    You can do the underdark region and the creche. You're only locked out if you complete act 2.

    It is, but it leads to the beginning of act 2. So does the mountain pass. As long as you don't finish act 2 you can go back and do the creche.

    What is the right level for the Underdark BTW? I am only a few hours into that environment but whereas I felt under-powered for a lot of the encounters early on, I feel a bit overpowered since arriving in the Underdark. Or perhaps I haven't run across any of the more dangerous foes yet?

    Starfield is now live. I'm about five hours in and enjoying it but still learning a ton of new game mechanics and menus. For me so far, following the main plot line and letting this long runway open up to me has caused me to like the game more.

    PS I found out Walter Stroud is voiced by the same man who played Quark from Star Trek and I love that.

    I finished Starfield this morning, extremely disappointed. Mediocre game that already feels outdated and has all the typical Bethesda game issues albeit a lot more polished. Gonna do the factions and stuff but not really that motivated tbh, maybe down the line when there are more cool mods.

    So it went live about 5hrs before 1:36am and you'd finished it by 2:01am?
