There was already a thread some time ago about things like "Bad COP" quest for Dorn, Neera's and Hexxat's "bright dialogues", California's hippies/junkies in the wild mages refugee camp. Of course, for some it may be very funny, so maybe we can expect space ships and lightsabres in Sod? Maybe McDonald? Why not? McBurger castle where you are beeing attacked by overdosed hippies throwing at you rotten cheesburgers?.. It COULD be fun for some mod but I played BG back in 2000 and the feeling of seriousness and epic adventure was there all the game. Yes, in vanilla was jokes and such, but its very important when you know to what extend you may go not to ruin the FEELING of game. There was ppl who defended cop&cheesburger approach, well to some extend it can be justified, as Faerun is in the same Multiverse where we are, so some transition of ideas and blah, blah. But in such way you can justify ewerything! Darth Vader in SoD? No problem - just a sudden fluctuation in Multiverse, portal and voila! we have new funny adventure defeating DV by magic missiles... So, dear Beamdog, if you are hiring all those new and old actors, maybe you could rewrite at least something in BG/BG2? For example, why Neera's voice is echoed in BG2? It sounds completely different and much worse than in BG1, as someone recorded her at home on cheap mic. Change that COP quest description? First encounter of Dorn - what happened with actors? They sound like beeing deprived of sleep for a week! And many other things. So my main concern about SoD is to see "texts" and not a STORY. Just some common sense and respect for a series, please!..
