If I could mod this in as her online alternate outfit, I'd totally buy the game.
We should change her voice actor to some proper middle eastern actress too.Why stop there? you could make her voice sound muffled, like Kenny's from South Park.
Gaider was working on this??... great... at least he left Bioware.Gaider is a pathetic schill to join this dev.
Nowhere... I stated my point already.Not entirely sure where all of this is heading. But I don't think I like it.
Not that everyone will take it.... as BG fans are showing right now. And Beamdog started playing victims here for profit since original fanbase "harassed" them for being fake/shitty writers. You want to put jokes about GG? sure why not, you want trans person in your game? fine (not really probable in this universe but no one said it's impossible) ... But when you change existing character to make her fit your stupid agenda (And yes I won't apologise for calling it stupid as I should use more harsh word to describe it) then you should know that you crossed one line too many.Aha, well that's unfortunate, seems it getting more and more common :/

Also that's just complains about story/writing/characters .... no one mentions problems with the game itself. And I admit that I was intrested in this DLC two/three days ago.... I'm not right now.
Well, as was stated before by @Garrison72 David Gaider is working there.The top-rated reviews in Steam seem to be about the game problems, it definitely feels more as though there's an agenda to claim that the complaints are "political" rather than acknowledge the game's other problems. Reminds me of the early days of the ME3 launch, when Bioware/EA were doing something similar, and the press was blindly accepting it as true rather than looking for themselves.
On 22 January 2016 Gaider left Bioware after 17 years in the company. In February 2016, he joined Beamdog as a creative director.
Nah I don't say Gaider was fully responsible what was in the game... but reaction to criticism seems similar to Bioware/EA reaction form few years back as was mentioned before. And I have few bad memories about Gaider from BSN part of my past so I might be a bit biased about him being there, but let's not sugarcoat him too much as well, he works there as creative director after all. What impact he had for this DLC characters and storyline? probably small but I won't say that he didn't had any impact.I doubt that David Gaider had much of a role in the creation of this latest Baldur's Gate expansion. He just joined the company. What possible creative input could he have had when the game was released a few weeks later?
I generally like his characters, even the ones that are clearly part of an "agenda." Dorian was a smart ass and well-written, and even the one transexual character in DA:I didn't come across that heavy-handed. If the reports of this game's shortcomings are true, I would chalk it up more to Amber Scott, simply because it doesn't seem like Gaider's style.
That's a pretty bizarre move on the part of the developer, requesting that fans post positive reviews on social media and other sites in order to compensate for negativity in the marketplace. Nowhere in his post does he acknowledge that some consumers might also have legitimate criticisms that are unrelated to the writing or these specific characters.Hi everyone. I usually spend most of my time lurking here, but I'd like to ask a favour. It appears that having a transgendered cleric and a joke line by Minsc has greatly offended the sensibilities of some people. This has spurred these people into action, causing them to decide this is the worst game of all time and give it a zero review score on Steam, GoG and meta critic. Now, I'd like to ask for that favour. If you are playing the game and having a good time, please consider posting a positive review to balance out the loud minority which is currently painting a dark picture for new players.
