The Witcher 3: What is a next-gen RPG? - by Eurogamer

The initial paragraphs make a compelling case for graphical fidelity, namely that it is an invaluable storytelling tool, no just frivolous varnish, as some would have you believe.
I also pay notice to the fact the interviewer kept the alleged Eurogamer's feminist agenda out of the interview, despite that there certainly was a window of opportunity to do the opposite.
Yes, it does sound like he's back-pedalling and, I agree, there's nothing to apologize for, as what he said is indeed accurate. Characters are, for the most part, generic, as is the story. He also hints at the fact that a lot of players don't give an inflatable duck about said story nor the characters. They're entertained exploring the world. I'm of the opinion the world itself is not particularly exciting either, but that's off topic.

I'm sure this will introduce many painful decisions where you're not sure what to do.

So they are going to dumb down witcher 3? ›››
Sounds more like there will be a traditional difficulty curve in that it gets more difficult as time goes on. TW2 was brutal in the first hours, but it was much easier later on.

FINALLY! Someone who understands! At least the devs get it.
"The consequences in our games are not immediate,"
This is very good, very few games do this.
Overall, the article doesn't really say much so I'll reserve my judgement until I actually see the game.
Not all those who wander are lost

I wonder if that includes the enhanced edition... I guess the enhanced edition would be free. Since normally the enhanced edition has all the small dlc/fixes and extra's with it.

If it's anything like TW2 then M&KB will be sub-optimal and I'll be pretty livid.

Lol so the only reason your waiting for this game is to be angry.
I for one plan to wait until this information is available before I jump to conclusions

I don't think Witcher 2 is a bad game, mind you. But it was clearly built for controllers and those of us who prefer to play with mouse and keyboard had to suffer through that interface because of that. I expect the same to happen on Witcher 3.
