No. They dont. A lot of them buy second hand games. In fact, so many console gamers do that, that Gamestop was able to restructure their business model around that.

I get it that you probably like TW3, i get that But your emotional connection blinds you. There are WAY more people who dont give a shit about this game at all. What are they to you?

I'm fine with people who have an extreme apathy toward a game. Like me, toward Battlefield or whatever. I always think I'll buy one of them once they hit the bargain bin but I end up never doing so. This apathy also keeps me from posting in Battlefield threads let alone saying shit like "It's not complete! Consolitis! Moo! Moo! Bargain bargain 5 dollahhh!". Maybe that's the root of the issue I have with it

I know you're just kidding, but people with that attitude.. with that "I'll buy it when it's complete and it's in the bargain bin for 5 dollars" are truly worse than pirates.
Its their money, its their descision how they spend their money. You dont have a say in that. And no, they are not boycotting anything. They just dont feel that 50 bucks are justified. I dont feel that 200-300 bucks are justified for a smartphone. I buy used smartphones. My money, my descision.

Of course it's their decision. Isn't that always the case? Isn't that the case with paying extra for biological meat, so animals don't live a life in living hell only to be butchered in the end.. to use an extreme example? It's also your decision whether or not you divide your plastic from the rest of your garbage. Everything anyone does are their decision.

The point is when you look at games like The Witcher 3, which is obviously a solid and brilliant piece of work, and a gamer comes in saying "I'll buy it for 5 dollars", he leaves it to the people paying a more contributing price to support the developers. To bring that attitude into perspective, let me give you a little rhyme that defines the disgusting attitude of most humans: "I need a piece of steak every day! There are enough vegetarians out there to compensate me anyway! :D"

So, sure, it's their decision. It's my decision to complain about it. Trust me, those console gamers pay 60 dollars happily. Every time. Somehow.

Edit: Holy shit I'm in a treehugging mood.

But ... the game IS complete with all DLC and addons

I know you're just kidding, but people with that attitude.. with that "I'll buy it when it's complete and it's in the bargain bin for 5 dollars" are truly worse than pirates. Why? Pirates contribute to sales in the form of word-of-mouth. Everyone knows how important that is for sales. "I'll wait when it's in the bargain bin" those people are actively boycotting the gaming industry. Moreso than pirates are.

Heya guys, I left my impressions on The Witcher 3 in the NVidia patch topic.

As for GTAV, well.. I've expressed it before: I was underwhelmed, by both the campaign and Online. The campaign was just crazy nonsense with 3 Trevors, with one of them being more expressive with his insanity. There was no sense of danger, no real antagonist, no sense of importance -- nothing. Online is a loading screen and a freemode that should bore the hell out of anyone within 2 hours total.

Limited keybindings, no strafing, a "season pass" (1st time for a Witcher game, right?), consolitis... Ok, I'll buy it when the complete, fixed game goes on sale.

Please.. just.. please, shut up. I cannot control my inner rage-beast with fucking bullshit comments like these.

The SEASON PASS isn't for the 16 upcoming DLC's you'll get free anyway. It's for 2 HUGE EXPANSIONS that are in development. You remember those? Expansions? You do? Great. THOSE you get with the season pass.

Oh, and also.. every reviewer confirms that the campaign is 100+ hours large so again.. please, just shut up with your "I'll buy it when it's complete".

Yo! Thanks for that Quinn, keep it coming. Got some info on the combat? Is it fun or a pain?

I trained a bit with Veremir and fought 5 ghouls but that's it. In combat mode, Geralt does feel responsive. I was used to TW2 combat, so at first I was slashing air because I expected Geralt to close the gap between himself and his target. He still does this to some extent, but you do have to close the gaps manually yourself more than in TW2. The signs/magic feel more responsive albeit simplified too. Aard is like "Force Push" in an arc in front of you, knocking enemies back and off-balance. Igni is a gush of fire in an arc in front of you. Axii now simply stuns the targeted enemy. Yrden creates a temporary, rather large AoE that slows enemies that enter it. The shielding sign (forgot the name) works the same as in TW2, although the animation has way less of a "fuck yeah now I'm shielded!" (see latest Night to Remember cinematic to know what I mean) vibe .. which I found really disappointing.

You do light attacks with the left MB. Strong attacks with shift+left MB. You parry with right MB. You can hold right MB to play it safe, or tap it at the right time in order to do a counter-attack. This feels really nice.

With ALT + direction key you dodge. With SPACE + direction key you leaproll away.

You can focus on enemies using Z. Good for controllers, but with M/KB you own the shit out of the battleground without it I'm certain.

I haven't got the crossbow yet.

Blue, I can't seem to see or post in the comments section of "The Witcher 3 Released" topic!

Played the game the second it unlocked last night, but only for 45 minutes do to the early day today. The game looks fantastic though I can't seem to get a steady 60fps with everything on Ultra, even with my GTX980. Perhaps my CPU is the bottleneck now but I can't imagine this. It might be the NVidia Hairworks. A friend of mine with a 780Ti jumped from 35fps to 60fps once he turned that off, so I might need to try that.. although I don't want to, because... well, I have a fucking 980 -_-

The game looks absolutely amazing. I also like the combat! Geralt didn't feel all that responsive, though. I nearly ran off the mountain with him because somehow, he starts with a walking pace before he jumps into a run a second later. I think this is the control-stick feature (where you can tilt your stick a little to walk and more to start into a run) not properly translated into M/KB control. In an earlier review I read that they had problem controlling their horse to a point that it got them nowhere. They had to get off the horse and go by foot. Unfathomable! The horse controls absolutely amazing, and I'm in love with Roach XI.

So, yeah.. slightly disappointed that the game won't run at a constant 60fps with everything on Ultra but it still plays amazingly smooth (50fps average), and that's very remarkable considering the ABSOLUTE BEAUTY it paints on the monitor!

PS: I'll have to adjust the GPU Generated Frames setting in the NVidia Control Panel, I just remembered, to 3 instead of "Game Based". This can really boost the FPS if the CPU is indeed the bottleneck!

PPS: Sorry for this impromptu, messy little review. I'm at work, exhausted from last night and so busy that I shouldn't even allow myself on this page xD

I might give this game a go. My brother has just had a hissy fit and is totally unwilling to play it because 3D Vision support for it is "Not Recommended". He keeps going on about how 3D Vision is the future and how ALL games should support it. Sadly very few seem to.

He's so very wrong. 3D Vision sucks. About 99% of the people I've ever met even fucking hate the 3D glasses cinema bullshit yet they keep trying to push it down our throat. Virtual Reality is the future? Sure, I can accept that. 3D Vision? Give me a fucking break and tell your brother to grow the fuck up.

While I agree with you, having had a 3D Vision monitor with the glasses myself, you should consider scaling down the tone in your reply a bit. I do this: Imagine you're standing in front of someone in person and are having the conversation - how does it sound best? I guess the answer to that depends on upbringing, education, cultural background, etc.

I agree. I was hungry, tired, and pissed off at work

I sometimes feel like I'm one of the few that really liked the last Doom. It was, however, one of the few games that was actually too long

I'm not excited by this reveal, because Doom doesn't trigger that nostalgia stuff that it does for others. To me, it's just a new FPS reveal and all I do is hope it'll be a good one.

Do these also restore the visual fidelity implied by the screenshots still on the Steam store page? Or the greater fidelity clearly evident in earlier gameplay trailers? lol...sorry, couldn't resist. I'm sure it's going to look amazing regardless.

I don't know about the drivers but the day-1 patch is said to bring back some of the quality of earlier trailers. Source (German)

There's no proof in that screenshot comparison they have there... It's just different lighting/time of day.

Also, those are 2 review builds and absolutely bullshit. How do I know for certain? The preview build didn't have that tree that partially blocks the view toward the church on the right. The review builds do.

Hoping these'll fix the "ERR GFX D3D" GTA crashes as well...

Got around 100h of GTAV with 350.12 drivers on GTX980 clocked 1500/8000 and not a single crash the entire time, online and campaign.

That's great, but it doesn't help myself or the other people having the issue.


3 known solutions:

1. Overclock your card a little less;
2. Turn on Vsync;
3. Get Windows 8.1.

PS: You probably have me on ignore, so you will probably never see these solutions. Rolleyes

You still running Windows 7? I had this problem with my GTX 980 and had to tune down the overclocking a little. Now I have Windows 8.1, GTX 980 fully OC'ed and not a single crash anymore.

I've heard nobody say they can't deal with the graphics -- people are just pointing out it looks downgraded.

I'm unsure if these graphics are from maxed out graphic settings or just 5K settings. Hell, the footage you can watch right now from reviewers on the PS4 looks better than this so something is off with this source.

1) So you think they purposely downgraded the graphics for the release version only to re-upgrade them later? Sounds very unlikely to me. Judging from what I've seen so far the PC version is identical with the PS4 version except for the higher refresh rate.

2) I speak German and according to the article these screenshots were taken on a high-end PC with a heavily overclocked GTX Titan (non-X) at highest detail settings.

1. Some people commented here saying that they don't care much for the downgraded graphics as long as the gameplay is good. To me, it felt like they said it in a way as in to say the other people in this thread were saying something else. I merely felt like making clear that all the others were merely stating the obvious -- that it looks downgraded -- but that they weren't saying the couldn't deal with downgraded graphics.

2. That's pretty scary, then. But still, is the source reliable? How did they get their hands on the PC version? It isn't out yet and AFAIK CDProjekt didn't release any review builds of the PC version.

Here...

I don't think that was a reference to the event in this video. He is older now than when he got that bite. Unless I'm missing something in the timeline.


I think the devs just used old Geralt because it's still first and foremost a trailer for TW3. As mentioned earlier, the first book the game series is based on is The Last Wish, and in it he fights a bruxa like this. Everything that happened in it was prior to the game's timeline.

For The Witcher 1 they had a cinematic trailer of Geralt fighting a striga, which is the first battle in The Last Wish.

ItBurn wrote on May 15, 2015, 04:12:
Well, this was amazing. Not sure it beats the Witcher 2 trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kCGw_64Osc

They made that trailer later, due to the complaints that people had no idea what was going on in the main story. For story telling purposes it was somehow really important to see/know that the assassin killed another king before he killed Foltest. Oh, and IMO this new trailer looks even better than TW2's. =)

Those are some nice pics and .gif videos in there. I got scared shitless so bad my dick nearly retracted into my body when I saw the .gif with the boat at sea -- it looked so horribly bad it's like I was watching some shite from 2002. I bet that's just the PS4 being the weak shit that it is but still... I hope that will look way better on PC!

Too bad they couldn't keep her hot throughout the whole fight. Had to go the whole "enemies have to look evil - for the kids - and we're afraid to dismember women because the combination of sex and violence gives us confused feelings" thing.

It makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint. They look sexy in passive mode so they can catch anyone off guard, and in combat mode they have to look intimidating and scary so that even the best of fighters is reconsidering flight during the fight. But I read between your lines: You just wanted to see a naked chick.
