News Comments > The Witcher III Game of the Year Edition Confirmed

It's definitely in my top 5, perhaps even top 3 games of all time. I think I will rank it as the #1 RPG of all time.

Only thing I will warn against, is that the main game plus both DLCs is an absolutely monstrous amount of content, and if you try to do it all in one go, you may get bored of it just as you're hitting your stride in Blood & Wine. And Blood & Wine is so awesome, you need to try to keep yourself from getting a little "meh" in it, so maybe play through the main game, take a few weeks break, then do both DLCs.

That said, this game is worth every accolade and all the monies.

Wow such high praise. Real life intervened so I never got a chance to buy it, but I really enjoyed Witcher 2. Guess it's going to be a good fall.

Have absolutely no desire to play Overwatch and Hearthstone. Nor Diablo (do not like the subject matter). Nor Heroes of the Storm (it bores me). And my WOW sub is pretty much coming to an end. Don't care for Legion (it's more of the same). I have the complete StarCraft 2 game that I can barely bring myself to play (I find it boring).

I guess what I'm saying is Blizzard no longer makes games that appeal to me.

I feel the same way, but try telling that to the 15 million other idiots who drank Blizzs Cool aid.

So Dark and edgy.

I've long used AutoHotkey for these sort of issues. Just like how Witcher 2 bizarrely wouldn't let you re-map certain keys.

That program truly is a god send.

But that does absolutely nothing to discount the irony that the most secure platforms to have a clean competitive match today is on fucking consoles.
Maybe people should wise up a little and stop trying to have serious competitive scenes online. Serious mode used to mean a LAN party. Pretty hard to get away with this shit if a guy can watch over your shoulder.

Well we might get a Clinton president and the Smashing Pumpkins are still together, so your dream of reliving 1995 might come true!

I am probably in the extreme minority, but I want a sequel, as in similar in tone, to Quake 1.

Ain't just you. Pretty much agree with everything you said here.

I as well am most fond of the atmosphere in the first quake.

too bad there isn't a really good ultrawide monitor yet.

I have the ASUS ROG 34" 3440x1440p, IPS, GSYNC, 100hz

I love it...

https://www.asus.com/ca-en/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-SWIFT-PG348Q/

So how does that work when you can't push that resolution?

I run 3x24" screens in nvidia surround, so if I have the horsepower to run a game in 5760x1200, I can do that, but if the game is too demanding, I just run it on the middle screen at 1920x1200.

I'd like an actual sequel to Quake 1. The strogg stuff was okay in 2 and 4. But I liked the Quake 1 aesthetic. I want gothic cathedrals and shotguns.

Ya I always preferred the first game as well. The lovecraft stuff just seemed more interesting than future robot stuff.

I was surprised to see HardOCP, a site that is traditionally biased towards NV clearly showing this AMD advantage.

The amount of misinformation and inaccuracy of that sentence is actually beyond impressive, hardocp is one of the most unbiased review sites around.

I had always thought they had been SLIGHTLY biased towards AMD, to be honest, but when NVidia started really crushing AMD, being a hard core site they just couldn't ignore how much better their offerings were.

Well. You're reasoning in this case is utter bullshit because this particular game seems like the developers really gave what the gaming public wanted from a DOOM game.

Did they now? Did the gaming public ask for Doom to become another garbage console franchise with checkpoint saves and crap like that? Not the public that I am a part of, dude. The beauty of the origins of this franchise was the PC-centric design and how Carmack set new graphics benchmarks with each new iteration.

This new Doom is a $4.99 Steam sale if I've ever seen one. In the meantime I'll be busy playing the free ArmA III weekend. You know... an actual PC shooter with depth, complexity, awesome graphics and all that shit that makes actual PC shooters great. Fuck console Doom.

Have you PLAYED it? If not, then your angry rants don't really mean much. I guess if it let's you vent a bit (you seem stressed.)

I have a feeling the simultaneous multi-monitor setup shown will not really get used all that much because getting that to work exactly correctly requires knowing exactly the size, location and orientation of each monitor with respect to some reference point. That is a difficult thing to do manually, and expecting a consumer to have the skill and the tools necessary to determine that, and tell the game that is a bit much. This require knowledge and skill. At minimum they will need to have some fool-proof way of calibrating the setup, which they didn't even hint at.

I'd assume they just do it like they do bezel adjustment. Give you an image and you adjust until it looks correct.

Wait until Q2 ends Blizzard. Your numbers are going to be drastically lower; guaranteed.

Have you seen the amount of money Hearthstone brings in? They might as well be printing it themselves. And the expansion just dropped last week. I'm going to go out on my own limb and say they are going to be just fine.

somewhat off-topic, but I have recently gotten into the first Dark Souls game after a great deal of trouble with it for YEARS. I get it. It's probably a top 10 game all-time. Utterly brilliant.

I was absolutely dreading the first time I would get invaded by another player because forced PVP ain't really my bag, but HOLY SHIT did I crush that MF'er. He was NOT expecting a 2-handed Zwei +5 to rain blows upon him again and again. I cackled so loud I woke up my son from across the house.

My single favorite moment in the original dark souls was the first time I beat an invader as well. Says a lot since the game is so great.

It's almost like story drives a movie.

Yes, but story shouldn't also drive the characters. Characters should drive the story.

Funny because that was how I saw Force Awakens - the characters and their motivations drove the story and the fact that there were some familiar backdrops was just that - backdrops.

Thought the movie was excellent and blew my expectations out of the water. A few nods to the old movies didn't spoil my enjoyment one bit.

Err as I said already, I enjoyed it for the nostalgia and general romp. My issue was just with the execution of certain plot elements for that specific character. The actress was great and I had no issues with a female lead. The fan service was all fine and amusingly self-aware at points. It was a good movie. It just had some problems, most movies do. I am not "hating" on Star Wars before someone abuses that word lol. Just thought they could've handled Reys character a bit better.

I'm just making fun - hence the "Boo!"

I know a lot of folks thought Rey was "Mary Sue" (had never even heard of this term before this movie), but I didn't even notice it, or particularly care if she really is a bad ass. You know, force and all.
