I don't have the DLC's yet, and not sure when I'll end up getting them. Should they be completed after the main game? Or are they more like a go-ahead-and-do-it-whenever-you-want kind of thing?

Ditto. Would a new playthrough be encouraged at all with the DLC packs?

There's nothing stopping you, of course, but it's not necessary. You can easily play both DLCs with a Geralt who has already finished the main quest.

Heart of Stone can easily be done during the main game (though it's high level and you'll be near the end before you are powerful enough to tackle it anyways). In fact, one of the rewards that (SPOILER) Gaunter O'Dimm can give you is the answers to the choices you will face with Ciri.

I would advise doing Blood&Wine after the main W3 quest is over. Story-wise it just works much better even if mechanically there's nothing stopping you from flip-flopping. Also, things in Blood&Wine fairly quickly ramp up to level 40+ (or 70+ on NG+) and that's a level you'll likely not reach during W3 itself.

Warning, if you do both DLCs and then return for the W3 main quest, you will be so hideously overleveled it actually stops being funny.

Also, no interest in the Breach thing... I don't really understand why it's there.

A few reasons:

*[It's more content]*

*[People like digestible challenges to repeat and master.]*

*[It will likely force people to play a way they otherwise wouldn't and experience aspects of the game they otherwise wouldn't]*

*[Some of the devs had free time while other aspects of the game were polished and tweaked, and this gave them a way to keep busy and create valuable content while they waited on other parts.]*

And, of course, the REAL reason it's there:

So Marketing Could Have Another Check Mark On The Damn Box.

and comes with all of the benefits (NONE) and challenges (BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF TAX PAYER MONEY) of hosting major sporting events in their citizensí backyard.

The public stadium scam is one of the biggest fucking crimes in white collar history.

On topic, Yay Colossal Order / Paradox, and thank you for the free DLC

Not sure how good a weapon a billiard ball on a string is... Sure, it'd hurt, but it's not an incapacitation weapon.

The driving still looked pretty awful though...
A poll ball going 80kmph at your temple. Pretty good chance you'd die from that.

IF it hits your temple, sure. Pretty dang hard to aim that weapon though, so more likely you'd sock a guy in the face, and hurt him, or hit him in the shoulder, and make him go "ow" before he guts you with a knife.

Let's put it this way, there's a reason nobody is using that as an actual weapon.

I suspect this will be like Prototype where they replaced the main character from the first one because people complained he wasn't likeable. Then the 2nd game had an even worse main character.

I don't think it's possible to get a worse character than that douchenozzle from Watch Dogs 1.

Looks good. I'm excited. I'll wait for some good word of mouth, but I can see myself playing this. The city looks great, and I think the main character and the dedsec angle is pretty interesting. I like his two drones, should be fun for some cool viewpoints if nothing else. Not sure how good a weapon a billiard ball on a string is... Sure, it'd hurt, but it's not an incapacitation weapon.

The driving still looked pretty awful though...

Here's hoping it'll be great!

I got it as I really, REALLY enjoyed the beta (and loved the first one as well.) Haven't played yet, since I want to finish Blood & Wine first.

SF is a fun town as a setting, so I hope they fix the absolutely abysmal looking driving (especially on motorcycles) for WD2.

That was my biggest gripe as to why I couldn't get into it. Worse driving I've playing in a game, even worse than GTA4.


I never even played it because of that. I saw a video of a motorcycle slamming into a car, and the guy just stayed seated on the bike even though he spin like 16000 times and slammed into a wall. It was retarded. It looked like Outrun back in the 90s.

The Witcher 3 is just a Hearthstone clone with a ridiculously elaborate front-end.

That's really cool of them. This isn't a company that's swimming in money, so for them to release something like this is awesome.

It also sure is purdy.

No Sleeping Dogs 2 but we are getting this shit?

They made a sleeping dogs 2, sort of. It was in open beta for awhile. Some kind of weird mp triad warfare thing. Fucking clueless gimp publishers going "hey, you know what made the first game well liked? Well, let's do exactly NOTHING like that for the second one! Oh, and make it a F2P MP game!"

To be fair, that wasn't Ubisoft that did that.

Prepare to be absolutely blown away by graphics beyond your comprehension, only to have the final game look like Spelunky.
