News Comments > The Witcher III Patched
2. Re: The Witcher III Patched May 26, 2015, 09:19 Verno
 
I think I'm gonna stop until the font sizes are fixed and maybe theres a UI mod for the inventory/crafting bullshit. It's pretty good but I'm getting annoyed at those aspects of the game so its going on the backburner while they patch it up.

I like how unforgiving the combat is on the higher difficulties but they could take a page from the Souls games in terms of combat responsiveness. Their animation system sucks, all moves are committed and IMO thats the wrong way to do it. Also Geralt really doesn't need to do a silly twist or flip every time he does a move, especially when it exposes you to being interrupted. It's pretty funny considering that they call out Ciri for that kind of crap in the story intro but then go ahead and do it anyway.

Anyways good game, needs a few tweaks but much better than I was expecting at release for such a huge CRPG.

I hope it fixes the font sizes. Also they could take a pass at the absolute mess that is the inventory/crafting system.

AMD doesn't have its own fabs anymore (they spun it off years ago) so they're a less attractive takeover target for smaller companies looking to move up and I don't know what their patent portfolio is looking like these days either. I wouldn't count on a bailout by Samsung or whatever.

I'm not surprised sales are only at 450k, I've only seen one other person on my friends list even playing it. It sucks but a lot of people just take a sale mentality to PC games these days, especially since many are running backlogs.

Funny how so many people who aren't US citizens are experts on US politics lol Jester

It's useless bro, unless you are going to completely ignore the search engine, and all of its affiliated and related sites, applications etc. Google stores every single keystroke you have ever made, or will ever make regardless of whether you even use their gmail or not.

You literally have to be offline. It's comical to think using noscript and ghostery somehow makes you immune to tracking.

In DA:I everything felt very lifeless and static, as if you were just running around on a painting. Witcher 3 actually feels organic and immersive by comparison, I don't feel like I'm just playing a level in a game. I agree its down to art direction more than graphics but I don't think its any slouch there either.

Sounds like cashflow problems which many businesses struggle with due to poor planning. I don't think the developers really care for platitudes, they just need to set dates and meet those targets, its really that simple.

The console versions look much worse, I saw the PS4 at a buddys place last night and they get the short end of the stick. The PC version is much much better in just about every respect. Stop talking about it and looking at youtube videos, go play em.

I loved the first couple of games, looking forward to this. I just wrapped up my Dragonfall replay the other day, ironically I've never played a Decker before in any of these games so I gotta try that in Hong Kong.

Need for DLC.

I wonder how far off we are from having to pay for your gas in game with real cash.

Haha cheers, I'm a sucker for that old SNES shit. I'm playing it with my brother IRL, its still fun as hell. We do one session a week, time permitting. We're gonna do Seiken Densetsu 3 next and then maybe Final Fight. We beat Legend last week in one sitting (well no other way to do it) which was rough as hell, those old games are hard as fuck. One day Battletoads, one day.

The client is a pig, cumbersome and inelegant.

It's pretty hard to integrate all of the functionality Steam has "elegantly" but it does a pretty good job. It's also not a pig on resources.

Fragmentation is bad for everyone.

For the developer because it has to code for different platforms and then support them. It's more time consuming and costs more money.

For the gamer because the developer can only spend a fraction of its time/budget on his/her chosen platform, resulting in worse support and less platform specific optimisation.

Uh that's why they did this, they avoided fragmentation here by not doing another render path or significant splits in the code base so I don't see what your complaint is. Each platform will still get individual attention and already did so, I'm sure they will continue their fine tradition of post release support as well.

No, I haven't played the game yet. I'm left-handed and don't currently have the motivation to do the necessary hacks for the movement keys. While waiting for a fix I'm playing other games (e.g. GTA). As usual, things will improve eventually, and I have the patience to wait.

It's 5 seconds in a text file, not a hack but fair enough. I think you should actually wait and see what the game looks and plays like before passing judgment on their actions. If you want to complain about what you didn't get then it should be based on some form of experience with the product, not a link to a benchmark that shows vram usage. So exercise that patience you just mentioned and have an open mind.

GOG is cool but Galaxy is way too barebones to use as a primary source of games IMO.

Nope. Wrong. I don't understand. Plenty of games out there that are PC only and do/did extremely well. Wasteland 2 for example. And tons of other indie games.

And by the way: I'm getting pissed off by all those post-release-apologies and can't hear the BS (a.k.a. LIES) anymore. They had to release this on all platforms. Good. The game has issues on ALL platforms. Bad. Lack of optimisation on consoles, causing serious framedrops on PS4. Xbox One can't even handle Full HD. PC suffers from quality downgrade and performance is fair at best.

Get your act together CDPR.

As the developer already said, we wouldn't have The Witcher 3 without consoles. They are a huge part of the market and the PC base doesn't sell enough units to afford a budget so high. There's a financial side to the business that you simply don't seem to understand or care about but its a reality nonetheless. I'm pretty happy with what we received, I don't see a real cause for complaint here. It's easy to cherry pick static screenshots but the game itself looks pretty great while I'm playing it. You've played it right? You're not just going by forum talk? I ask because I find it hard to believe anyone would be seriously displeased by what they delivered.

Marketing is a tough balancing act as Ubisoft has found out recently with backlash over their displayed vs actual products. In the case of The Witcher 3 I find the game overall to be so nice looking that I don't mind any downgrades.

I always preferred Letterman's acerbic wit to Leno's blandness, sad to see him retire. His interviews were rarely predictable and often interesting. I still remember how he handled the extortion stuff awhile back, no one else would have been so head on and I think he saved his own legacy by being so blunt and direct about it.
