Complete with a custom Witcher-themed signature pic.
Oh, yes, we noticed.

I wish that games didn't carry over major plot points from game to game, because it's too easy for people like me to get burned out and lose interest while waiting for the story to end. At a certain point, so much time has passed that my emotional investment in the characters wanes. I mean, I'm not really interested in Dreamfall: Chapters, either, and I played Dreamfall just five months ago. Here's hoping future games are more self-contained like the first Witcher was.

I feel the same. At this point I wouldn't mind if it was scheduled for 2017. because I'm so burned out. We turned TW2 inside-out over the past year and a half. I know I won't love TW3 the same way I loved TW2. Not to mention I NEVER follow game press releases, trailers, interviews and making ofs; I don't participate in the pre-release 'hype'. This is new to me and will probably only prolong the burnout.
There is a certain degree of curiosity in there somewhere, though.

The only thing is -- I hated Yennifer from the books, and I hope the developers won't MAKE me/Geralt choose her instead of Triss in TW3.

Hah, that's so cutely said! I kinda have the same feeling, only in a more girly way

Nor by the prospect of a new Witcher game. TW2 might not have turned out like some wanted (even me) but it was still one of the best games I played in my long gaming career. I can see what ppl don't like but me - I was just washed away by it. Even having that intricate knowledge of TW1 and seeing how many things got omitted and turned around in TW2, breaking the continuity of "my" character of TW1 I still loved it.
But I am not hyped - I know that even when they announce/show/tease anything it will still be a long time off.
I remember how I felt exactly the same about TW2 before the first real trailers showed up.
But then came the first pictures of Flotsam and its forest in the rain.........well, let's say I almost got tears in my eyes. This was were I got myself hyped. And in the last weeks before release came this:
And I remember watching that trailer so many times, everytime I could squeeze a few minutes in
during work I watched it
And showed it to everyone (god, they must have hated me)

Story takes back seat in Skyrim because Bethesda are terrible at implementing their stories in a game. They are amazing when it comes to building beautiful and detailed worlds, but their stories always fail to deliver. Note, not the writing itself, but the stories. They are never executed well enough. Skyrim's main plot was just a disaster, for instance.
CDPR are fantastic when it comes to building plot and delivering it in the game.

...and have zero experience in building vast, open-world as Bethesda does. So that kinda evens out.

Worst thing can happen is huge number of bugs which is already a trademark for open world games, especially Elder Scrolls. I started them playing since Daggerfall it is only getting worse...
And also i don't really expect a land mass as big as Skyrim. Even 1/5 of it filled with CDPR quality details would be a blast for me though.
