The Witcher 3 is always in a crescendo, crafting battle scenarios that constantly one-up the last, until you reach the explosive finale and recover in the glow of the game's quiet denouement. But while the grand clashes are captivating, it is the moments between conflicts, when you drink with the local clans and bask in a trobairitz's song, that are truly inspiring

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt encompasses what I hope is the future of RPGs. It stands out for its wonderful writing, variety of quests and things to do in the world, and how your choices have impact in interesting ways. Usually something is sacrificed when creating a world this ambitious, but everything felt right on cue. I still think about some of my choices and how intriguing they turned out – for better or worse.

Though the straightforward and fetch-quest-heavy main story overstays its welcome, the option of joyfully adventuring through a rich, expansive open world was always there for me when I’d start to burn out. Even if the plot isn’t terribly interesting, the many characters who play a part in it are, and along with the excellent combat and RPG gameplay, they elevate The Witcher 3 to a plane few other RPGs inhabit.

YES!
Quote:
Wild Hunt is a grand adventure that feels distinctly of its time. It manages to set new standards for video game technology while accentuating the fleeting nature of technological achievement as an end unto itself. It is a worthy exploration of friendship and family, mixing scenes of great sorrow with scenes of ridiculous lustiness, tempering its melancholy with bright splashes of joy and merry monster guts. Come for the epic showdown between good and evil; stay for the unicorn sex.

Sounds alright but it's no Zelda.

Will buy this when I get enough time. Epic RPGs like this with great quality and polish are why Bioware/EA are basically irrelevent now. (as dead as a feminist hooker reptilian in a virtual reality GTA sequel with japanese hentai porn mods loaded in)

Witcher is a big rip off of Michael Moorcock's Elric character but that's ok with me. I don't read many books so it's still fresh to me because of that.

Who else here is buying this? This is why I am interested in next gen (current gen now but that's what people called it when this was first annnnounced as a title) not re-releases of old shit like GTA5 which is just double dipping. Just because nintendo did it with Zelda Wind Waker for Wii U, doesn't mean all the unoriginal companies need to follow you know... :roll:

I think there was another RPG Cyberpunk that this developer was supposed to also be working on. What happened to that? Are they still going to do it? I haven't heard anything about that game in ages. Now is the time to release any info about it because Dues EX sequel is coming and people are in the mood for cyborgs again. They are are new "bald space marine" of today. The pirate craze and set in the old west craze seems to be over now.


^
Get to work on this now that Witcher 3 is done!

They didn't show the lesbian vamps sharing monsters precum like it was tasty BBQ sauce that I saw in the trailers and make a joke on it.

Oh yeah and zelda is going to be way better.

I remember how pissed off the pc tards were when skyrim got lower score than skyward sword because SS used innovative control scheme.

Really pleased with the scores, it ended up scoring higher than I thought it would so I will definitely be picking this up day 1. This will be my first witcher game. Arrives next Tuesday.

Who else is in?

Some reviews are mentioning frame drops for the ps4 ver and I'm starting to think I should pick this up on PC , but my video card 670GTX could be a problem. My CPU 3770k and 16gb ram should be fine.

There is a day one patch that could improve peformance. I was thinking of buying a video card but want something larger than 4GB. Maybe there's a 6GB 980gtx...

Would 4GB 980gtx be good enough for 1080p?

Yeah I think I'm in... Though I'm likely to run out and buy number 2 so I can get a feel for the game before I jump in to 3.

Ok, been reading up a lot about the frame rate on ps4 from various sources and it's indeed poor at times where it rarely hits 30fps, and AF issues, plus bugs. Day 1 patch could possibly help but I'm not expecting much of an improvement. I could get a 980 GTX which comes with a free code to get witcher 3. That's my second option.

I'll just wait and see how it turns out on PC. I know I said day 1 but waiting for it to release, tested in benchmarks and bugs would be the sensible option. I'd also like to see how big of an improvement visually the PC version has over the console.

Probably give Witcher 3 a miss since I haven't played the first and I hardly touched Witcher 2 despite it running quite well on my rig. I'm in an old mindset where if I have digitally downloaded full price game (Witcher 2 was $25 for me when it came out) I don't feel obligated to play much like back with pirated PSone and pirated DC games. Give me a retail copy and I usually finish them within a week or two.

We'll know sooner or later if it has been 'fixed'.

Worth a read I guess. In a nutshell, game was downgraded because of consoles.

35 minutes of traveling from the southern part of the non-island map to Novigrad. PS4 footage (obviously...)
Per an earlier post by erawsd:

GTA:SA - 36 km/sq
RDR - ~ 41 km/sq
GTAV - 81 km/sq
Far cry 4 - 46 km/sq
Skyrim - 37 km/sq

Witcher 3 - 136 km/sq + 4-6 additional regions whose size are unknown.

Yup this is 1 out of 2 open-world maps in Witcher 3.


Jebus. :shock:

Currently pre-loading the superior PC version. Looks like it might be a contender for the best open-world in a game to date...

Witcher 2 was free to all gold members a little while back. Why didn't you all grab it then?
