The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

post #1 of 363
Thread Starter 

Your body is ready.

 

post #2 of 363

Yes.  Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

 

Jesus H. Fuckballs that looks amazing.  Am I crazy or does it sound like Charles Dance is voicing the Nilfgaardian Emperor?

post #3 of 363

It is indeed Charles Dance who plays Emhyr Var Emreis, Emperor Of Nilfgaard, The White Flame Dancing On The Barrows Of His Enemies.

I don't know why I've found the world-building in this series so tedious. It's always put me at length's distance from these games. That and the horrible main character/sexism. Oh, and the combat system. That'll do it.

post #5 of 363

Oh, go play Mario Kart.

post #6 of 363

I wish I knew how to quit you Jacob.

This shit. Pre-ordered. Get a date on Cyberpunk, that'll be bought too.
post #8 of 363

The last game I pre-ordered was Witcher 2 for 360... I may have to break my personal embargo on pre-ordering for this one tho.

post #9 of 363

As soon as my crippling poverty allows, I'll pre-order too.

post #10 of 363

I don't really do the whole collectors edition thing these days, but Witcher 3 is looking to make me forego a lot of my newer maxims when it comes to game buying of late...

 

post #11 of 363
This collector's bundle is kind of enticing. Witcher 2's CE was expansive, but the big Geralt head wasn't my style. Last major CE I got was the Songbird statue edition of BioInfinite.
post #12 of 363

I almost never splurge for these Collector Editions since they are usually incredibly expensive.  The only time I ever did was for the N7 Edition of Mass Effect 3.

 

This one though...I might take out a loan to buy that shit.  I already have a perfect spot for that statue on my shelf.

post #13 of 363

Out Bethesdaing Bethesda and out Biowaring Bioware people...

 

 

post #14 of 363

One hundred fucking hours???

 

Goodbye, life.

post #15 of 363

My multiple hundreds of hours spent on multiple games laugh at such a measly number.

 

Then retreat in shame and try to decide what went wrong.

post #16 of 363

If you need any further proof that CD Projeckt Red is just one of the best developers working today.  Take a look at the stuff you get when buying the STANDARD EDITION:

 

- The official soundtrack.

 

- Detailed map of the game-world.

 

- Some stickers.

 

- The developer created "Witcher Universe- The Compendium".

 

Also, no DRM.  Even the standard edition of Witcher 2 came with a handy game-guide and a lovely map.  Any other developer of a AAA-game would have you apply through their own god-awful client (-cough- U-Play -cough- Origin) and put absolutely everything that's not the bare-bones game behind some paywall or as super-exclusive DLC only available through Pre-Order from Fuckhead Retailer # 52.

 

It's really fucking nice to know that there are developers still out there that harken back to the days of yore, when publishers and developers didn't treat their customer base with such barely-hidden contempt.

post #17 of 363

CD Projeckt Red are bringing out 16 DLC's for free on all platforms.  Basically telling EA, Ubisoft, Activision et. al to go fuck themselves in the process.

 

post #18 of 363

Okay, I mean... COME on!  What a cool ass company.  All the DLC being free is reaaaaaaally going to be a popular choice. 

 

How is any of this financially viable?  Are their sales so incredible that they simply don't need the money?  I had assumed all DLC was important keeping the lights on money at other companies...  Guess not. 

post #19 of 363
CD projekt own GOG.com. I'm sure they're doing fine, once they release their Galaxy desktop app I think they'll take off if it works as planned (I'd definitely make the switch from steam). But this is par for the course for CDP who've done the same thing for previous releases expanding content completely free.

Now that we live in an era for $50 Season Passes...they tell the era of $50 Season Passes to go Fuck the hell off.
post #20 of 363
That was not entirely true. Giant bomb is reporting that the free DLC is items and cosmetic stuff. Extra big gameplay sections will cost bank which is fair if you ask me.

post #22 of 363

Not damn.

 

Unity most recently proved once again that rushing to meet a deadline can only end in sadness and glitched out faces.  Taking an extra three months to make sure everything is in top shape is always welcome news.  Take a fucking look at how it's supposed to be done Game Publishers!

post #23 of 363

Would much rather wait twelve weeks for a finished game than spend those twelve weeks doing what essentially amounts to free QA for a company.

post #24 of 363

As long as SLI setups work at launch, they can delay it as long as they need to.

post #25 of 363

They'd better goddamn work at launch now that I'm hooked on 4K.

post #26 of 363

Certain sections of the game will allow you to play as Ciri, the new 'Witcheress'.

 

 

 

 
 

"Ciri is playable only during certain moments in the game – we introduce her to give gamers another perspective in the story to make it even more engaging," explains the studio's Robert Malinowski. "You won’t play as her for long periods of time, but since she’s crucial to the plot, we thought that additional insight will allow gamers to better bond with this cool character."

 

"We introduce Ciri as supportive narrative tool and not because of gameplay mechanics. The Witcher was always about Geralt and that has not changed, but that handful of moments when you play as Ciri provide us with glimpses of how the story feels from the other side."

 

"She’s a living weapon… and everyone wants to control her. This, plus she also has her own will and agenda, so it’s not just finding her that counts. I think that is the most important aspect of this character. Geralt knows Ciri since she was a child. She’s Geralt’s apprentice and they have a close emotional bond – he trained her so she could become a witcheress."

post #27 of 363
Ciri, what time am I suppose to kill that Gryffon?
post #28 of 363

Circi isn't a Witcher.  The lore established in the first game stipulated that only men can be Witchers(since only a small subset of them can survive the process/mutations).  She is what they call the source.

 

She has inherent magical ability(versus being painfully imbued with them like the Witchers) and is FAR more powerful than a Witcher...

 

She was partially trained by the Witchers(without the mutations) but was sent off to develop into a mage.  Then, it gets kinda murky and I guess that will be explained in the game.

post #30 of 363

This game genuinely makes me worried about going 4K.  Will I even be able to get a steady 30fps out of it?

post #31 of 363

Save for the graphics card I'm sitting right on the recommended specs.

post #32 of 363

It might be time for a GeForce 980. <sigh>

post #33 of 363

Real time beard growth?

 

http://www.leviathyn.com/news/2015/03/24/the-witcher-3-features-real-time-beard-growth/

 

This is some of the first truly next-gen shit I've heard about.  Really nice touch.

post #34 of 363

Man, this game is going to be expensive!

 

$60 + the $5000 rig I'll need to cobble together to run it effectively.

 

And before you jump on me with your 'but I made this for $800!', I am joking.

 

Or am I?

post #35 of 363

My rig prices out to around $2500 at the moment and I can totally get this baby to 30fps @ 4K! :p

post #36 of 363

Isn't 30 fps the devil, though?

post #37 of 363

Shhhhhhhhhh don't say that.

post #38 of 363

I just need a new processor to run this game effectively.  And a new graphics card might help too.  Nooooo biggy...

post #40 of 363

I'm not the least bit excited about this game.

 

"Is it 1358 yet?"

"No."

"Fuck off, then."

post #41 of 363

"Drink wi' me, ya cocksucka!"

 

This game might make me lose my job.

post #42 of 363

YOU CAN SWIM WITH FUCKING MERMAIDS!!!!

 

Game of the year, folks.

Don't be ridiculous Singer.  This game will definitely make us lose our jobs.

Conan tackles the xbone version of Witcher 3 in his Clueless Gamer series. if scoring was all that he was interested in Witcher 1 has him covered.
post #49 of 363

Triss is better anyway.

post #50 of 363
Alright folks shit just got real. GOG has started their preload if you bought from them DRM free, Xbone did their preload a few weeks back.

And now Steam has just opened up the option to preload the game...all 13 megabytes of it. I'm really hoping that's just a screw up and that they're not the latest dev to try the Streaming Install shit that was broken for Mortal Kombat when that launched. Edited to add: and they fixed the little snafu, proper steam download is now 21.3 Gigs.
