News Comments > The Witcher III Video; Previews
18. Re: The Witcher III Video; Previews Jan 27, 2015, 06:12 Lord Tea
 
My 5c:
Geralt looks older but better in shape than ever before

Gfx look pretty much like in Witcher 2 (with everything maxed out), so no quantum leap but still quite decent.

I really like the new map, very well done.

Did they play the console or the PC version because they undoubtedly used a controller?

And finally:

Pshaw... last Witcher 2 also had great previews, and then shipped with a shitty control scheme and broken GUI.. so yeah, youtube let's play and then maybe a buy

And that "dev session" was clearly played with a controller aside that looks neat

Quick and simple: If I can't do the key bindings IN GAME this time, I won't buy the game.

Wake me when KS actually wants payments by Europeans again... Not gonna use American CC providers and their non-existent payment security. And especially not Stripe, which is not a trustworthy payment provider in the EU. As in literally, it's classified as "do not use" because of zero protection required in the EU for banking business (which is what stripe is, even if it just temporarily touches the money

Stripe also has a 15$ chargeback fee. Which is illegal in the EU. (And now you know why they don't support European payment systems)

And before you wonder, the difference between Stripe and Paypal, is that Paypal has a banking license and is thus protected by and obligated to EU banking laws. Which means if Stripe is hacked or your payment details leak you are fucked. Zero protection, zero rights.

Can't believe they choose that provider of all the possible ones

[sarcasm]
Everything is going to be SO MUCH BETTER once TTIP is here! Be HAPPY!
[/sarcasm]

If I didn't have an actual US CC thanks to my US bank account I probably wouldn't even know what Kickstarter is.

Social Club. That's it.


Thanks, I take it this means registering (the game) at Rockstar. Fine with me.

I reinstalled Wizardry 8 the other day. I recall being absolutely blown away by the game when it came out. It's pretty dated now, but still an incredible RPG. Instead of yet another MMO, they should have just made Wizardy 9.

I 2nd that. ZERO interest in the MMO. They should've made W9 instead.

"Requires controller" welp guess we're not buying that.

Yeah, smells like console and I hate that smell.

It's still a nicer smell than the snobbery from either side of the fence.

Would you boycott the Star Wars X-Wing / Tie Fighter games because they require a joystick? After they were re-released on cd in the late 90s they needed a stick. Not recommended - required.

Back in the 90s consoles have not had any adverse effects on games and their development for the superior PC platform. Nowadays they do.

Shadowrun Dragonfall Director's cut for 6 bucks is crazy value. If you love cyberpunk and RPGs in general, that's an ungodly 15-20 hours of pure, AWESOME fun for 6 bucks. GET IT NAO!

$2,500 is too low. Where's the options for $10k, $20k, even design a custom ship for custom pricing?

So much more room to fleece those who want to pay to win.

Don't worry, these options will be given soon enough since the $2500 ship sold out within seconds...

Im getting Elite on release and all the rest be damned. Im gonna trade my way to the biggest ship in the game, and then Im gonna fly off to the center of the galaxy and check out the supermassive black hole in the middle.

Oh, they'll even bring the black hole to you when they decide to shut down the servers for good... in five to ten years.

If Im playing this game five years from now it's going to be like the best game ever created in the history of gaming ever. I seriously doubt that a 50$ game will hold my attention for that long, even a space sim, I dont think any game has held my attention for that long except for maybe TF2 which I come back to every few years or so for a few months/weeks at a time.

Nice try though.

Little black holes also might pop up unexpectedly upon disconnect.

When they inevitably do, Im just gonna roleplay the shit out of the spacetime disconnects caused by those pesky singularities and wait for them to clear up.

No longer interested in this MMO. Curious whether they'll go full microtransaction and in-game advertisment modes after release.

I never was interested in an MMO that E:D turned out to be. Pretty sure there will be microtransactions, in-game ads, lockups upon disconnect, and, when they finally decide to shut down the servers in a few years, they shut down your license too. After all they said the whole E:D universe is so fvcking dynamic - it absolutely needs to be kept alive by a permanent connection. Thanks but no thanks, not going to deal with all that garbage.

All this nonsense is solvable. It's simple. Don't fund kickstarters. It all goes back to the expression, a fool and his money are soon parted.

Alas, I have to agree. Apparently I was very lucky with the only two games I backed, Wasteland 2 and Battle Worlds: Kronos. Both delivered what they promised, and without DRM.

The E:D(RM) disaster definitely hurts the idea of crowdfunding.

They should scrap the online thing, allow updates via a web service type API for the people that want to use it, and be done with it.

At this stage of development I doubt it's possible. They screwed a lot of backers by telling them way too late.

Spot on assessment. That's why I'm waiting for the delicious shitstorm that's going to come when Roberts pulls this shit. I fully expected this from Roberts from the get-go which is why I didn't back it, but I didn't think Braben would pull this shit. What a bone-headed move! Unless they do a 180 in double-quick time this will bankrupt them and they'll never make another game again because no one would but it. Stupid is, as stupid does sir.


One would think that Roberts is drowning in cash already but if Braben gets away with this shit Roberts might get the same or a similar "brilliant" idea - can't have enough money, can you?

Anyways, I'm so glad I didn't back this game (and I was so close to doing it) and I've already removed it from my to-buy list.

That's all nice but globally speaking Macs only get a tiny piece of the pie. So, who really cares?
