Today, 03:02 AMJust saw the trailer.
1. I jizzed.
2. I want that song.
3. I want that game.
4. Short and sweet. Just how I like 'em. Great trailer.
5. Hearing Geralt/Mr. Cockle say "I returned" sent shivers down my spine.
6. That was some sexy shit.
7. I jizzed.
Man. I'm currently playing AssCreed 4 and I'm surprised by how much I love it. I go into each AssCreed game with the expectation that I'm going to hate its fucking guts. But this one's pretty awesome. If The Witcher 3 can deliver that same experience when it comes to the open world aspect, then fuck me am I hyped...
06.12.2013 @ 19:20Oh come the fuck on... This is just nitpicky. Who gives two shits about that. Well, except you.
There's more important things to worry about. Bodies just disappearing is pretty damn low on my list of priorities. I didn't find it unimmersive in TW2, and I doubt I'll find it unimmersive in TW3.
Oh and what's with the word "immersive" being thrown around the forum so much lately? I mean I'm glad people are talking about something else than 1080p resolution and SSAO anti aliasing but fuck. I'm pleasantly surprised. Keep it up lads. Maybe one day we can have a intellectual discussion about narrative coherence and postmodernism.
06.12.2013 @ 19:14Huh. Incredible. Cheers for sharing. Much luck to you in future endeavours!
In Topic: Immersion and plate armour (Spoilers - don't read if you've played less than 1 hour of TW 2)
06.12.2013 @ 12:27Hey! Would you look at that. A poster that includes a spoiler tag in the thread title. Much appreciated
Anyway! This is a very interesting thread. Kudos for your attention to detail. It's a disconnect that I honestly had never really considered. Mind you, the reason I haven't is because "it's just a game". There has to be a game underneath all that "realistic" pragmatical armours.
But no. I'm wrong. You're right. There SHOULD be a difference. After all, why design some enemies with armour if it doesn't matter. Waste of resources and time. Mind you, the difference between a simple peasant spearwielder and a knight doesn't necessarily have to be in terms of health, poise or resistance to damage. Different patterns of attack AND different ways to take down the two enemies is enough to distinguish the two. Though it would be nice if one enemy type does in fact have more health, poise etc. in order to highlight that his armour is indeed not only for aesthetics but has a practical function as well.
There's a balance to be struck between "can't pierce a cuirass" and implementing the correct game design to reflect the added armour. I don't think that bashing a knight in the head to kill him is wrong or unimmersive. Partly because it's unreasonable to request complete and utter realistic depiction of medieval combat. Realism does not equal good game design. And partly because, well, not everyone is an expert in medieval warfare and equipment. I don't know what the appropriate counter would be to that. And neither should it be required that I know.
All the game has to do is establish that plate wearing enemies are tougher and require a specific attack pattern to take down. Your suggestions are awesome. I don't know, I'm losing myself now. Long post and I'm losing track of my own thoughts. Great thread, hopefully RED will add some much needed depth to TW3 in terms of attack patterns.
Also, I hope they change the way vigor works. Right now, vigor is depleted when using signs but that means you'll be doing less damage with your sword. I don't like that. It forces the player to use a sign, then back off, or simply just use the sword exclusively. Like me. Those two systems should use their own gauges but I digress.

Alright. Chapter 1 in that case. I reunited with old friends, met a badass elf, drank too much, prepared for a giant sea monster, got to do some really cool quests. Yeah, chapter one.
Though I love the entire game! Gaaaah! It was a mistake coming to this thread, how can you do this to me?! Choosing one over the other feels like cheating
