I turned off hair. Game runs much better and looks better now. Although the twirl when attacking is a bit annoying since he seems to leap the opposite direction.

News Comments > The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Released
25. Re: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Released May 19, 2015, 09:42 Frijoles
 
As I mentioned in the other thread (the GTA5 one before this one was working), the keyboard bindings are shit. You can use a 3rd-party remapping program or hack the .settings file. But seriously, how the hell do they not even let you remap movement, let alone 25% of the keyboard? And their very own .settings file lets you do it just fine, so it's an interface issue.

I'm running it on a 980 with everything ultra. I need to toggle the hair thing on and try that. Graphics aren't bad, but not as great as I had hoped. I think Skyrim is slightly better in the graphics area. The facial and character animations are hit and miss. Sometimes I think they're great. Other times it looks like a puppet.

Movement is a bit annoying, but I recall that being the case in Witcher 2 as well. Geralt will abruptly turn or start animations if you barely touch the keyboard. I've run in to many people while riding the horse. I've stopped using the horse if I'm in town or not going very far. The movement reminds me of Assassin's Creed, only Geralt isn't trying to climb every tiny rock he sees.

The quests and exploring are fun so far. And the Witcher senses thing is well done. The atmosphere in the game is spot on, and I'm enjoying the story (only about 2.5 hours in). You definitely can't just go wherever you want unless you level up a bit since things will eat you. And I like that.

The character skill panel looks much much smaller than Witcher 2. I haven't spent a whole lot of time with it yet, but that massive tree thing they used in Witcher 2 is gone and replaced by different system, sort of like the one used in Shadow of Mordor. Haven't done much with gear upgrades yet (only had one item that was better than starting gear that I could use). And I have yet to find enough ingredients for alchemy.

Still, I'm hooked on the story, and that's why I got it. Is this the second-coming of games? Nope. But still fun so far. Looking forward to playing it more tonight.

Yeah keybindings are the only thing so far that pisses me off. Bet it'll get fixed in the next patch though.

There's a setup file in Documents\Witcher 3\ that you can change to "fix" it. But it's a bit messy. And by a bit, I mean very messy. Still, it worked. Took me about 10 minutes and complains constantly about the keybindings being changed. Loving the story though, although I think it just crashed.

Comment embargo at Blues for Witcher Release thread.

What's with that?

(Witcher 3) They fucked up key bindings badly. Can't remap a bunch of keys, and movement keys aren't even listed. If you're not WASD, you don't exist.

But GTA5 is awesome.

What's the difference in eye strain between Rift and 3D movies?

Your eyes focus at infinity, so no eye strain. Not that I've noticed anyway after using it for about 2 hours straight. You do come out a bit .. weird though. Not sure how to explain the feeling, but .. weird fits well.

Personally I'm disappointed. A lot of us were hoping for 1440p. I know they've never given specs, but I thought it was strongly hinted at. If the only reason for lowering the resolution is to run on a 970, that's lame. Less powerful computers could simply lower the resolution to make it playable. As is, this thing matches the dev version of the Vive. Hell, isn't Gear VR higher rez than this?

I'm on the fence about getting the release version now. Before today I was excited to buy not only the CV1, but also the Vive. Now I don't see much point to that if they're going to be the same. Guess we'll see what comes out at E3 or if anything changes throughout the year.

Cool looking game. My days of playing online FPS are over though, getting too slow to keep up, and getting wrecked repeatedly is never fun.

With luck it'll have a matchmaking system in place like their other games. You can play with old fogies like me.

Still, it's actually heartening to see people on both sides of the aisle against all this nonsense in the first place.

Heartening?! It's a down-right miracle. I figured it would sail through what with that catchy name.

I bought both Disney Infinity and Skylanders for my kids on the Wii-U. I figure a large portion of their profit was from me.

I'll give this a try when Witcher 3 hits it. Steam needs the competition. My goal is to buy what I can from GoG when possible, otherwise fall back to Steam. Just wish they had a bigger catalog.

Same here. I started it a couple weeks ago and played for a few hours. Decided to stop fearing they may wipe/break save games.

There was already one popular mod (forget which) that put popups in the free version asking you to get the paid one every few times you cast a spell. They've removed the free version due to backlash, but fuck them in the ass. I already hate games on my tablet due to all the money-grubbing devs. Oh, you want to play more than 10 minutes? Better cought up some cash.. I mean coins. If that comes to the PC, I'm done.

Bethesda pisses me off lately. I'd like to boycott them, but the next Elder Scrolls / Fallout game is going to make that difficult.

Looks interesting, and I'm glad they got feedback from Roberta and Ken. I'd rather give them the money, though, and not Activision. I miss the old Sierra. Seeing that logo used to give me shivers. Not so much anymore.

I like both Dota2 and this. They scratch different itches. Heroes for a quick match, Dota for a longer one when I have time.

No mouse lag here after turning off v-sync. I'm hoping they fix the damn collectible bug soon though. You can only find one per save/load, and I'm broke as hell on Franklin.

Yeah so their solution was to piss on everyone when EZ-Mode dungeons came out

And yet they're the largest MMO and doing quite well. And Wildstar, your dream MMO to keep the filthy casuals away, has flopped. Go figure. Not everyone has 3+ hours a night to devote to half a raid with a 10% chance at a piece of gear. Vanilla MC was shit. Getting 40 people together was shit. Having shaman gear drop when there were no shamans in the raid was shit. I don't miss it at all.

Never played any GTA game but I'm curious if I could enjoy it... in fact what amaze me is the open world and that we can do about anything anytime but I'm not really into kicking asses and killing people.

I'm in the same boat. I've never played a GTA game. I don't understand the appeal. I watched a stream last night of a guy who had a mission to tow a car from point A to point B. I'm not sure I see where the fun comes from in towing a car (although I did laugh at his poor driving skills).

What makes these games so fun/popular?

Not 100% on the lore, was there a reason JC Denton wasn't brought back for HR? I tried #2 (invisible war) but basically skipped it as it wan't my cup of tea so I don't know if it was explained in it.

Human Revolution was a prequel to the original Deus Ex, where you play as JC. So he didn't exist yet.

Edit: I'm too slow with my replies.
