Have you ever encountered something that has so profoundly devastated your life that you feel compelled to share it with others so they too may understand your pain? Well, that's precisely what I'm doing right now, as some fans of Baldur's Gate 3 claim that Astarion sounds just like Stewie from Family Guy, and I no longer see any purpose in anything else.
Indeed, the attractive vampire character that drives us all crazy does, in fact, sound like an animated baby voiced by Seth MacFarlane. Understandably, this has sparked excitement among fans everywhere who are desperately trying to overlook the similarities. But to make matters even worse, it is also pointed out that he is a strange combination of both and Prince Charming from Shrek. We simply can't catch a break.
The comparison was made practically immediately after the release, but it has now truly spread, as so many Baldur's Gate 3 fans have gone crazy for Astarion. I suppose some people simply had the urge to dampen our enthusiasm.
As many Astarion fans have illusions for breakfast ("Evil Astarion still loves me!" being a personal favorite), they make great efforts to ignore this. However, it's quite difficult to do so when it's so, so accurate.
Oh, and to make things even worse, it is pointed out that he sounds even more like Stewie in an animated short film by Mashed. I despise it here. Can everyone please stop saying that?
In a peculiar manner, this is actually not the only dreadful revelation related to Astarion that has been made within the Baldur's Gate 3 fandom this week. As we reported yesterday, players have discovered that it is possible to completely avoid him by never getting close enough to trigger the introductory scene. Unfortunately, this leads to a dire outcome for him, as later on, he is found as a zombie in his former master's hideout. Without the player's presence there, he appears to have been resurrected and utilized for Cazador's plans. One must kill him, and even if revived, he remains in a zombie state.
