I'm not sure about anyone else, but Skyrim was a massive disappointment to me. It was basically just a wonderful world full of generic quests with the main quest being not much better.

If Witcher 3 even slightly lives up to Witcher 2, it will be game of the year for me again. Bring on the real story driven RPGs.

I have never played witcher but willing to give it a try.

I actually agree with you, i recently finished skyrim clocking 39 hours and felt let down with the quest, the main quest being pretty poor imo. I'm currently halfway through Act 2 on witcher 2 with 28 hours so far on steam and love it. Honestly i didn't know it looked so good either (i'm on the enhanced edition).

Really looking forward to w3 now ;)

Just out of interest do I need to start with 1 & 2 or can I jump straight into 3. What I mean is, is there an on going story line with this series or is each game a new story line.

For me a good story line/plot much like what makes a great book is the main factor of a game not just the graphics but something that captures you which I hardly find on any game these days.

Just going of topic I expect the graphics to be top notch as standard because of the tech we have at our disposal but if the story is rubbish or lacks any depth then for me its a no show.

I just never understand why game companies tout their game as the best this and that when most of them are shooters running around without any real purpose and they want to charge expensive prices for much of the same. Surely what is the point of a game if it means nothing more than point click shoot. The plot then does not have anything to offer.

Take destiny for example if I want an hour or so of pointing the trigger and having all this gear given to me because the more I play the more I get then its a good game for the brainless. But if I want a great story line that makes me truly enjoy I am shaping the game and thinking about my actions the plot is good then destiny is an very expensive dust collector on my shelf.

I wonder if it is me or do others share these thoughts about games today.

I just have to ask, does the controls still feel sluggish? I played the start of the Witcher 2 and couldn't get beyond the first 30 mins. It didnt feel so much I was controlling a nimble battle harded hunter than controlling a drunk one eyed peasant with a limp. I did not like the way the controls felt at all and gave up.

The long loading everytime I went through a door in Skyrim drove me nuts.

In Witcher 3 there is no loading when walking into buildings.

You will be fine without playing the other games or reading the books. I do recommend the books and games - however CD Projekt Red has done an excellent job in TW3 introducing new players into the world of The Witcher.

Let's put it this way - in TW2 there were something like 20-30 animations for Geralt in combat. In TW3 there are over 90. He's much more agile and responsive this time around. Actually from what I've seen it looks downright fantastic.

Yes I know thank goodness.

I used to play the old Gothic series, 2 and 3 were excellent the levels were huge but designed with such care that you didn't need a map due to the memorable landmarks.

Furthermore there was no loading screens even when entering buildings it was all seamless any that was years ago now.

Which is why I found Oblivions and Skyrims constant loading screens so annoying. However I still enjoyed the games but not as much as the Gothic or Witcher series.

Thanks for the reply and the info I will go check it out :)

I actually found the books to be badly written and thus difficult to read. This is probably due to the poor English translation where often the tone and tempo tend to get lost.

Matthew Bunton

I must admit i'm about 10 hours in and doubt i'll bother finishing it.

The first game was great but since the series has been poor.

Furthermore where the hell do they get these writers from? Most game stories are terrible and could have been written by anyone with a modicum of talent.

I am enjoying the witcher 3 atleast, one of the best game i have play the past 5 year after the red dead, if you like RPG then this is the game for you. I dont know what to said about this game, beside try it becouse even the side quest of this game is fun to play. Mind you i have only play for 10 hours, but its seems this game only get better and better. Its a beautiful game and deserve to be play with.

Last night I had a nightmare time with the PS4 version.

1 complete crash whilst
playing Gwent for the first time which would seem common. 3 Further
freezes in the inventory which all required returning to the dash and
closing the game. 2 cases of loading that never completed needless to
say I just turned it off after all that.

This all happened within the first 3 to 4 hours of gameplay on version 1.02 on a brand new PS4.

I read the books in Czech (which is very close to original Polish) and found the writing excellent - very easy to read, very hard to put the books down

Wow, that really sucks. I haven't had a single crash or freeze in over 30 hours of play. Both my friends and sister that are playing it (over 20 hours each) haven't had any problems either. Did you buy digital? If so you may need a re-install.

It's also odd that you say you're playing 1.02. PC is on version 1.03 but consoles are still 1.01.

Matthew Bunton

Thanks for trying to help. No in the end I needed to shut the console down disconnect from the mains for a while and then start everything up again. It all seems to be ok now.

Matthew Bunton

May 24, 2015, 6:09 pm

Uk consoles are on 1.02 whereas US are 1.01 i think.

OK. I figured maybe you were in another region or something. Glad it's working for you now.

Hope you're having fun. Coming from Bloodborne to this I've almost become a shut-in!

Not sure what's up with the Emperor's New Clothes hype about the underwhelming watercolor environment and horrible grass/water.

Yes, TW3 is not a single player MMO like DA:I. DA:I has better environment visuals though.

You apparently haven't played many games if you think DA:I is one of the worst ever made.
