News Comments > The Witcher 3 Trailer
8. Re: The Witcher 3 Trailer Sep 26, 2014, 02:22 Lord Tea
 
I have seen enough trailers and I remain sceptical.

Everything is sweet in these previews but but most of the focus will probably be on the POS consoles.The PC version won't look much better an will still run like ass. That's a scenario I'm very afraid of.

At this moment I'm glad I have NOT pre-ordered.

Give us the game already and I might change my mind.

As a backer of W2 I feel I'd qualify for a free copy of TToN.

Vogel really needs to learn to use Unity and actually hire a few real artists.

Good point. If they used a more modern Unity engine for a change I'd actually give it a shot. As it's always has been and still is with most of the Spiderweb games, I feel thrown back into the early 90s - graphically. Sad, because the games are decent old school RPGs.

'Not Every Game Should Be 1080p' Says Xbox Head Phil Spencer.

As a PC gamer I agree wholeheartedly - some games should be 4k. It's 2014 after all.

Its time to get the Irrational Games team back together. Its time for System Shock 3. SHODAN is still out there... somewhere.

Not going to happen. The majority of people today prefer fast food (Bioshock) over depth (System Shock). They want to sit on their couch, relaxed, with a game controller in their hands. Not compatible with System Shock.

I think Kickstarter would say otherwise, assuming they could get the team and the rights.

Also, I like yer sig.

Honestly, I'd throw quite a bit of money at such a kickstarter, provided it's done by the right people (e.g. the original SS2 crew).

And... I actually hate my sig

Guess I'm the only person who thought weapon degradation added to the game? The preferred way of handling combat, at least through the early game, was to avoid it. Once you got your weapon and repair skills up, degradation became pretty much a non issue.

Weapon degradation wasn't a bad idea. The trouble is it sort of shoehorns you into maintenance skills if you use any weapons at all because a weapon breaking on you mid-fight is a very, very bad thing. Resource management in SS2 was such a massive part of the game that having weapons in constant pristine condition made the game hilariously easier even on the hardest difficulty setting.

OSI players didn't really give a shit about it, though.

On the other hand OSI on highest difficulty was still harder than any other class by an order of magnitude.

That 25 millions dollars he got as a bonus, could be used to pay each of those employees $833. It is irrelevant to the discussion.

I disagree but I suspect we're just going to delve off into everyones personal definition of capitalism. I do not take a bonus while people in my department are losing their jobs en masse regardless of how well our division is doing relative to the rest of the company.

Saying it is because Windows 8 or XBoxOne is doing bad, is just ignorant. They are not doing great, but they are not actually doing horrible either.

Literally one user said that, no one else.

... and even I was just making fun of MS.

They can blame that on Windows 8 and the Xbox One, two major products that are totally sub-standard.

Nah, they're not the problem. That's why they switched to consoles and console-piracy doesn't exist.

You’ll need 165Mbps internet in just 6 years, study finds

Sounds about right to me. 250 Mbps is the maximum one can get where I live. It's insanely expensive though.

I'm having the feeling that this is some lame attempt at making top dollar with games that have been available for quite some time. The Metro games have been on sale multiple times on Steam/Amazon, now they want $50 for both of them because of some added effects.

I'm interested in spartan mode.


Okay thanks for the link, the price makes more sense to me now.

And my understanding is it's the same for Europe. So really it's absolutely pointless outside of the US. So how are they to compete with Apple, Samsung, Google, MS, which are all truly global.


Your understanding is absolutely correct. Amazon has been misleading European customers for quite a while with false advertisement and features that are simply not part of the package. The good thing is, more and more people notice that they're being screwed over and a shitstorm is about to launch in Amazon's face.

On a side note: When I moved to Europe from the US my Amazon music library was gone - for good. "This service is only available in the United States." Thank you Amazon. Interestingly, ALL my itunes licenses were/are perfectly available here in Europe. Ever since I keep telling everybody here to stay away from Amazon cloud services.

And their Fire-phone is doomed to fail because of their decision to launch the thing in the US only. No one in the rest of the world will give a flying fuck about that phone in half a year...
