Not so good at the moment, PC version. Crashes all the time. Try to change settings got a bit better, but random crashes.



Hey, unrelated to the OP, but I was wondering if I have to have played witcher 1/2 to really understand the story in witcher 3. I already preordered it but I'm hesitant to go pick it up for that reason lol.



Predictions for LT console sales:

PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Vita: 13M

People are saying no. I haven't played wither 3 to know how they update you on the story. There are some great youtube videos that give you a general run down (thats what I used for #1). Honestly I would just go play #2 the game still looks great and is still fun.

I've never played Witcher 1/2 ..... some back story will be missing but other than that Witcher 3 is a full stand alone game. The game allows you to use previous game save data but I just ignore that option. *spoiler free* I met this girl in the game and there was awkwareness between us because of the main character previous relationship with this other girl. I had no ideas what she's talking about but you just have to accept the fact that your main character slept around before Witcher 3 :)

....WTF?



Well played a few hours of it mainly just getting used to it and doing a few side quests, I can't explain how glad I am that I decided to start reading the books just before playing this (never played 1 or 2) it's helped so much as all tge characters that have been introduced in the game I'd read about and new some history on them, it felt like I was already familiar with the game. I've only read the first book ( the last wish) and I'm currently halfway through the second ( blood of elves) but it's helped so much. It was great to finally see some characters as well but to be fair the books done a great job describing them that they pretty much looked how I imagined them to.

Add me if you want but let me know youre from this website

Been looking forward to the game but still have another month until I get it on PS4. Sounds like it'll be worth the wait!



It'll be awhile before I figure out how to do one of these. :P 

Absolutely loving it, I have 11 hours clocked so far on Steam and enjoying it. Playing it on mostly high settings with a couple settings and keeping between 30-50 FPS. The gameplay itself is very addicting and fun although the story is a bit convoluted.



Shakarak on Nintendo Switch, Steam.

how is the transition from witcher 2?
