I burnt that shit down, after everything the villagers said it was a no brainer >_>



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

I don't think we can brand another game than the Witcher 3 the title of AAA game. The game, the grafics, the story, the quests, everything is alive and engaging. I'm having a blast with side quests and I'm on a interrogation-marks quests spree in Velen. There's so many of them.

I was at first a bit taken aback by the graphics I kinda hyped too much, I'll look after the SwetFx upgrade but I trust CDPR for a high res pack DLC for us PC players. Actually, with all at ultra and just TessFX deactivated, I've a steady 60 fps (GF970 ftw). Without, not steady 47-50 fps.

Gameplay combat is weird at first, but you can adapt really fast. I still consider combat is TW1>TW3>TW2.

Crafting is immense, but I'd love them to reintroduce the potion system of TW1, which was easy and complex at the same time, especially when you were making your potion with albedo, rubedo or nigredo dominant. The new system is... different, but compensates with a lot of upgrade and a cool loot system. In TW1/TW2, I just kept a few swords, I'm changing my favorite gear quite fast so it's pretty cool imho.

I've not played Skyrim (I stopped Oblivion after 60 hours because bored of the fetch quests), but like TW2 was taking inspiration from Batman (it's a good thing), TW3 is inspired from Skyrim. Do you guys think they're improving on skyrim.

Also, I'd like to say that they've gone a long road since TW1, with only a few different NPC, now the NPC look soooooooooo alive, especially the old women asking for stuff.

BTW, I've tried activating 3D and it gave me some nice result, but at the great expense of FPS and resolution. Nah, world was even moar alive , as if I could grasp it. Not worth the drawbacks, imho, but nice try.

If you haven't jumped, stop everything you're doing, and start to play right now.

Disclaimer : I've had another runs in difficult of TW1 and TW2 since February waiting for TW3. I'm clocking 185 hrs of TW1 (5 runs), 100 hours of TW2 (2 runs), and 21 hours of TW3 (starting run)

I made the same decision but now im not sure if it could have a bigger impact later on on my final ending :-/ , im really thinking about going back an doing it again but changing a few things xD .



In another thread I had said I was not 'feeling' the game, but now it really 'clicked' and I´m enjoying it...quite a lot, actually...the quality of the questsand dialogues is amazing.

And I´m really digging the main character, Geralt, he´s like a cross between Solid Snake and Ned Stark.

Just got a new update for the game.



I put in over 30 hours on this game from Friday to Sunday this past weekend. Absolutely love it. Playing it on the second highest difficulty. At times when I die it feels cheap and frustrating, but the story makes up for those hiccups for me.

I´m also playing on the second highest difficulty, now they REALLY need topatch those load times, especially the one that loads your save after you die, atrocious.

I let it live too but omg when i made the trip to collect the reward, my body was not ready for what i saw >.>

I dont even know if the spirit did what he promised.

BTW the witches design almost made me vomit, that one with the eye full of flies.
