News Comments > CDPR on Witcher 3 Graphics Downgrades

I think where some use the words favorites, I think it is safe to say they have built up their rep from previous actions, allowing some leeway. There is no secret hand-shake, or group BN meetings on who we like or don't like. EA, I'd like to think if they made a fantastic game, we'd give them some credit for that.

To me reading here, it seems overall that it's gfx or nothing. I bet the game still looks darn good, but then comes in "how fun is it to play?".

"Boosted texture anisotropy sampling to 16x on Ultra preset "

This one always gets me, what kind of old system must one have that AF at any setting taxes a system?

His complaints about Steam are spot on and phrased mildly at best if you've ever had to deal with their shitty, near non-existent CS. The client is a pig, cumbersome and inelegant. It's a reflection of Valve's indifference, nay, contempt of their customer base. I too am one of the many that will be going GoG - and any other service or developer trying to go that route as well. And the nore support GoG gets the easier it will be for them to unseat Steam and power can start to swing back to consumers where it belongs.

Many as in less that will take to VR? When you like something "its the many", when you don't "gimmick, niche".

I would love to see GoG be an alternative place to buy games, competition good. But they need to work on their library.

Banning does not improve online gaming.
Banning cheaters to me in a game is an improvement.
And thats the problem. Instead of fixing bugs, companies just ban someone. Its cheap, it makes you feel good and it does not change a thing.

Or it is a problem that you can't fathom a company being able to do more than one thing at a time. I will go as far to say you don't need a coder that can fix the game that way to figure out who is cheating and ban them. For all we know the secretary was assigned this task, while the developers work on bugs and features.

You weren't cheating were you?

Or do you want them to spend most development time seeing what cheaters are doing and coding it so they can't? Probably like any hack, that can go on forever. But a player shouldn't be buying the game and then instead of playing it, figuring out how they can cheat first, then play. I'm sure it is right there in the EULA and pretty much understoo by the community, cheaters are wrong and can be banned.

Was trying to watch some gameplay on Twitch, Jesus that service is *really* fucking annoying. It seems to be either teens who are all gangsta wannabes 'Holy fuck, did you see that shit yo?!' or bimbos in Cosplay gear who are clueless and trying to milk money from guys.

It's fucking near impossible to find a stream of someone just playing at 1080 with no comments or in-game camera of them - really? I came to watch the fucking game, not you. I really just don't get the draw of Twitch with all that horseshit.

Sounds like your first time there.

The horror is the official forums, not what is being said there, but the forum itself, yuck.

Funny watching stream, dude accidentally picks up apple, guards from near and far immediately know he took the apple and they will now just take his life, no arrest, no talking it out. As the dude got on the horse to flee the town, the townspeople are screaming in terror because of this. Dude is saying... "It was just an apple!". Yeah these games need to move this tactic forward, how about a non-discrete guard coming up to you and asking for the goods with a fine on top of that?

Do like going into buildings with zero load times.

It might not be on purpose, there are reports that on games built using the gameworks framework even the GTX 960 is beating the older 780 GTX, which should not be possible. You see the code could be something that is part and parcel of the framework, something that only Nvidia's newest generation of cards takes advantage of, or more nefariously something that lowers the performance on all but the latest Nvidia cards.

I have been wondering what has been going on here, funny how nefariously looks like nerfs and fits. I haven't read too deep into it yet, but yeah this might get interesting.

I also dislike 3rd person in general. I mean, I can stand it, but I think that the game would be better in first person, as would a lot of other games.

Using a mod in a certain game, it's pretty cool, out of combat it pops into first person, when in combat it pops out to 3rd, a pretty cool option. I always find first person so much more immersive moving around.

Anyhow, I fail to understand how new set of drivers could have anything to do with "marketing", please enlighten me.

Well in their own words they push their program of "Game Ready" which can only be found on NVidia products. Selling...

The Illuminati are behind this, and everything is a lie! Word.

Well I don't know about all of that, but it does get their name out there. Isn't "Game Ready" the exclusive feature that allows the system to auto-tune drivers for your system and said game? Selling user friendliness... and again getting their name attached to it.

Here's a german video that shows many glaring differences from the trailers to release version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIS5WHx4xDk

Throw in youtube crap bitrates... I'd put sweet fx on top of the right. It will look plenty good. The draw distance to me is was stood out the most and it wasn't terribad, just a bit more blurry, could be a setting in the file to adjust that as well. But again with Sweetfx, I'll have it looking better than the old demo.

I'm having second thoughts on W3. Here's another. It's not just about graphics, but what else have they butchered? It's screaming 'consolitis' right now and it's not even born yet.

There is next to no way the grass/landscape right next to you will be that smeared and blurry.

The only serious mistake CDPR made was to release this on consoles, I'm glad they didn't make a fucking Gameboy version, otherwise that downgrade would have turned out even worse.

The game keys was a bit of a black eye.
