Wow. i just 2 days ago noticed that SOD is out since i am usually not having much time checking games nowadays with a 9to5 job and a family to take care of and i was so happy that it was finally released and i get something worthwhile to play in the evenings.
I really wanted it to be an honorary part of the Baldurs Gate series.
And then i saw what Beamdog and their writers did to it.
What a disgrace.
You did not honor the originals, you dishonored your license, you dishonored yourselfs.
You have Minsc mentioning Gamergate, as if putting political warfare into your game is a smart idea. As if Gamergater are not amongst your audiance as well.
Regardless what you think of gamergate, a medival themed game and a Ranger with his hamster are not the place nor the characters to wage your dumb ideological warfare with.
You have Goblins calling you racist. Girls calling you out for mansplaning and much more.
You changed characters personalities like Safanas because well, you didnt like them the way they were...wtf.
You have barely any choices like when somebody insults you based on your looks or gender, you barely are able to say anything funny or maybe even . But we are definity allowed to be offended...
Same goes the other way around. When you meet one of those Token-Characters with their "protected classes" like gays or transsexuals, you are not even able to say anything mean to them, regardless if you play a chaotic evil character or not.
These token characters are never real characters and just SJW messages like the transsexual who tells you about her gender history in the very first dialog.
And the worst thing is that one of the writers came forth and said she literally doesn't care if we THE PLAYERS don't like it. She said she doesn't care if her writing is fake or forced.
And beamdog actually though hiring people with zero intent to put effort into their writing, zero intent to write anything but their hateful propaganda, was a good idea.
I guess i will be banned now as it is so common amongst these SJW lunatics to ban and silence everyone who calls their bullshit out and disagrees with them. But I literally don't care anymore. You took the joy out of baldurs gate from me. This will be my last post here anyways.
You did not create a Baldurs Gate Sequel. You created a propaganda tool. If i wanted a propaganda tool I would buy a feminist textbook next time. Thanks for nothing.
