11.05.2013 @ 19:47Although I am not worried about the specs for myself, I do hope that they pay attention to optimising everything instead of throwing 4K textures at every asset ( i know 4K isn't used in games, it is an exaggeration.
Not everyone has the money to buy an ultra high end PC and I believe that very few people will buy a whole new computer just to play one game, so sure make it very pretty to look at but keep it realistic there comes a point where the increase in graphical quality doesn't weigh up against the loss in performance.
At least make it playable on mid end computers.
Anyhow can't wait to start with The Witcher 3
21.01.2013 @ 18:54The list on pc gamer was a good one and I hope CD Projekt takes heed of that advice.
I didn't hear anything about dumbing down, just a clearer story arch, explanation of characters ( and why you should give a damn about them), better balancing of difficulty ..
I don't see save importing being anything big tbh, because it would mean they have to develop 2 games ( or at least a lot of content that approaches 2 games),it would also mean that the witcher 3 would have less content/quality because they have to spend a lot of resources into making sure they close the archs of stuff people did in the previous games If that is the case I would say no, just do it like the witcher 2 with maybe somesmall references/dialoque options
13.01.2013 @ 00:09Well i hope they succeed, as far as I can judge they put in the effort and they put their product on the number 1 spot, so they deserve it as far as I am concerned
12.01.2013 @ 20:55@ Vojtas:
I was off course exerating when I say Witchers could train soldiers, I just tried to open your mind to other possibilities.
Against his/their mission you say? Well I couldn't help but notice that I was helping in a war and helping trolls and strigga's and a wraith at some point for which I sometimes received little to no payment... not sure if I will be a top earner in monster slaying country...
You mention a trilogy? I have never heard they will stop at part 3, which means they can go on forever.
This also means that they have to put it in a format ( like stating that 1,2 and 3 will be a saga and 4,5 and 6 will be the next saga or make each story stand on its own- which might be hard to implement since you have to revisit some keyparts so people new or don't remember understand the context and the keyplayers and why Geralt insulted that guy without apparent reason).
I can also imagine that playerchoice will be harder to implement each time unless they are not planning to go back to certain locations and keep choices within a single game.
If you really want to get into smart reading try reading up on string theory, a game in general cannot have the same content as a book without becoming to muddled or only understandable/engaging for a select few and since the witcher is in a triple A categorie with high production values it will have to speak to a broader audience to be able to maintain itself.
Well the "lore" is apparently against it, I find it irrelevant however if it is in the books or not.
As long as they keep the essence of the lore I have no problem with Geralt drinking a potion during combat.
I personally feel it is nitpicking and comparable with some hardcore Tolkien fans when Lord of the rings came out, they complained about Tom Bombadil not being in, wrong pronounciations of the Elvish, Absence of Glorfindel and I believe there were a number of other complaints...basically they wanted a 200 hour movie where everything was as the books described.
I do admire the dedication of fans however that they care this much, I also hope that they will understand it if the developer will change stuff to make the gameplay more engaging/ believe able and not start complaining enmass because of some small detail ( like in this case the potiondrinking)
12.01.2013 @ 19:59The teaser didn't do anything for me, probably because I have no knowledge of anything from the cyberpunk universe.
But I can imagine that they have their hands full atm and just wanted to share something with the world
