Hey all Witcher fans.
New in here, just finished TW2 and have to admit I love the game though with a few dislike too.
Here Is some of my hopes for improvements in the upcoming Witcher 3 game
1: more fluent combat, I hate the fact that you have camera control and target switch in the same joystick, It is so annoying when you face Multiple foes and can´t get a good angle on your surroundings/enemy without switching targets.
2: More open world. that you can return to a specific place or town and not have ongoing quests fail simply because you moved on, so to speak.
3: better target lock movement and dodge roll. By that I mean that Geralt keeps facing his target even dodge rolling, it is so fail that every time you dodgeroll or backroll he faces away from his target and gets hit. I think its weird that the only game so far that has THE best target lock is Zelda: Ocarina of Time.. No other game comes close to Zelda OoT, in that game you have the best overview when you targetlock, both front And behind the hero
The dodge roll should be just that, a dodge roll, where you can dive out of the way of the enemies reach, it shouldnt be a somersault where you keep getting hit, a dodge roll should be just that, where you dodge out of the way and not get hit.
4:Weapons and finishers. It would be nice to have more variety in weapons in the form of spears, bow and arrow or maybe a 1 handed crossbow for ranged armed with sleeping darts for example, halberds, maces , morning stars.
It would be nice to have finishers a lot earlier in the game so you can experiment more with one´s playstyle (see the new tombraider
5: NO multiplayer. Please do NOT put MP in the game I never understood why every single player franchise has to get MP, It didnt work for Dead Space, Uncharted or Tomb Raider, now I know I might be a bit biased since I dont play multiplayer since I feel it inhibits me in the game of getting achivemements/trophies, so plz no Online Achievements /trophy.
6: New Game Plus. I hope this will be featured in TW3 since I think its lame that you do all this "work" of getting the best gear, weapons and what not, and then you only get to keep it for maybe the last 30-45 minutes of the game, it just never seems to be worth the effort when you have the best armor and sword but you only get to have it for 2, maybe 3 quests left in the game.
7: Being able to be stealthy by choice and not only when the quest tells you to. It would be cool to be able to sneak up on ppl and either knock them out or slash their throat.
8: change Geralt/Companion skins. I always thought it would be cool to change the companions apperance, always thought Vernon Roche looked weird with that hat/helmet think on his head or wish I could take the hood off of Geralt since it looked silly but the armor ir was attached to, looked cool or Triss´s hair could be changed into maybe a simple ponytail. maybe something one could unlock through out the game.
Well thats some of the hopes I have for The Witcher 3. I can´t wait for this game to come out.
Keep up the excellent work
