E3 video always looks good then when released will look nothing like it, probably ported from console to pc

#5 Posted by blangenakker (2674 posts) -

@awax187187: But its not an E3 video.

Thought title says E3 2014 trailer

@awax187187: Hmm, I guess it is then.

I still have to finish the Witcher 2 first... And perhaps a GPU upgrade.

The Witcher games have been well known for pushing the limits of systems when they come out, there is zero evidence that should lead you to assume this trailer is bullshit.

I will definitely need a GPU upgrade. No way am I gonna play this game with my 7770. When the time comes I'll probably create a thread here and ask you people for advice on which GPU to get.

I haven't been this excited for a game since Dragon Age: Origins! It looks SO good!

Great trailer, hope game scales well to lower end systems so more people can enjoy it. Yennefer looks great.

Dual Titan Z... If you got 6 000$ to spend on GPU... :P (PS: TriSli 780Ti will probably yield better result and cost less than half that) :P

Hopefully the gtx 800 series will be out by then and hopefully i would have saved up enough money for an upgrade.

That's out of the question lol. My budget will probably be around 250 euros max. I hope some GPUs like the GTX 770 will have dropped a little in price by the time February and The Witcher 3 comes.

Ugh - the memes the kids are using these days.

#18 Posted by Toxic-Seahorse (4414 posts) -

I'll definitely be upgrading before this game is released. It's easily my most anticipated game.

#19 Posted by osan0 (13201 posts) -

well that was a perfectly good excuse to watch that trailer again :P

#20 Posted by xxninja666xx (682 posts) -

To be honest, I'm not really thrilled about it. From the trailer the game looks like a mix between LoTR (The Wild Hunt King looks almost exactly like Sauron in the movie), Skyrim and Dragon's Dogma. It lacks the slavic mythology and dark atmosphere of the first Witcher, which I loved.

#21 Edited by FelipeInside (26662 posts) -

I'm lost with the story though. I thought Witcher 1 and 2 was all about Geralt being one of the LAST Witchers alive... but now there are heaps?

And the Wild Hunt was before Witcher 1? But this is called Wild Hunt? But it's a sequel? I don't know...

#22 Edited by Blutfahne (276 posts) -

I got 16 hours in the Witcher 1 and 20 hours in the Witcher 2. Maybe in this one I get 25 hours since it's open world and all ;d

Yea the linear scope of the first two turned me off. I finished the first one and the combat was not great but I liked it much better than the second. The second one had ridiculously bad consolized combat, that is my only concern for this one.

Incredibly cynical. I bought Witcher 2 for 360 after playing it on PC on my monitor and thinking wow that looks amazing and the 360 version looked so bad I gave it away. It was f***ing awful.

I have told my OH I want to play this game properly so have a system unit upstairs hooked up to large screen HDTV and so am currently playing it the ONLY way it will look incredible.

Witcher 3 will be no different. It will look good on PS4 and X1 and it will look AMAZING on PC.

#27 Edited by -wildflower- (2971 posts) -

Maybe I am old but it's hard for me to get excited about a trailer. The combat it both Witcher games was pretty forgettable so I hope the third time is the charm. I really like CD Projekt as a company. I just wish I liked their games more.

#28 Edited by Toxic-Seahorse (4414 posts) -

@FelipeInside: When you start the first game there's a group of Witchers and you all split out different ways, never to hear from them again (which I thought was weird) the Witchers in the trailer may be them. Plus, there can also be other Witchers they never knew about(as was the case for the 3 others Witchers in TW2). I don't see anything in the trailer suggesting there are heaps of them though.

Also, from what I understand, the Wild Hunt is not a singular event that happened only once, it's something that happens over and over again.

#29 Edited by KHAndAnime (15023 posts) -

The trailer looks phenomenal. One day I'm sure I'll play it but I don't think I have it in me to beat another lengthy single player RPG.

#30 Edited by Toxic-Seahorse (4414 posts) -

So GoG.com selling it for $48 if you own both TW1 and TW2 (I do) when pre-ordering now, but I'm thinking about holding out because TW2 had an awesome box and I hope TW3 gets something similar. I was hoping GoG would let me pre-order a physical version, but it doesn't look like it. Not sure if I can pass up $12 off though.

#31 Posted by nutcrackr (12908 posts) -

Kinda wish the CE didn't have the statue, the rest is nice.

#32 Posted by PcGamingRig (7248 posts) -

@topgunmv: Mine too, sadly my rig may not be though. :)

Definetely will need a GPU upgrade.

#33 Posted by PredatorRules (9086 posts) -

BEST MOVIE TRAILER EVER

#34 Posted by kweeni (10993 posts) -

Looks awesome indeed.

#35 Posted by Legend002 (9015 posts) -

10% off is the way to give people the incentive to actually preorder. They are being way too generous giving an additional 5% for each TW game you own.

Very nice Trailer, im sure the game is gonna sell well seeing it already reached 1mio views on YT. :P

#38 Edited by blangenakker (2674 posts) -

Ah GoG are very generous. Since the game is around $20 more here in Australia compared to the US we get a $20 coupon to spend on the site. I love how they acknowledge the price difference of games in different countries.

he's just one of the last of them and a famous one. There are only 3 of them left not including Geralt i think

As for the bit about the wild hunt...im gonna have to replay the games because i can't remember all the details

Yea, except Poland, where the site originated. Here the prices on the site are still in US Dollars, so everything on there is not worth the price when you convert it to our currency - the price sometimes reaches a price equivalent of a game released 2 years ago (after a price drop ofc). Not cool, CD Projekt... Not cool...

i was really bored in witcher 2, i got it for only few bucks but deleted it within a few hours of playing it. Not sure why people like this game, its gameplay is terrible. I played the original all the way through and its gameplay was even worse but it was quite a while ago so i could forgive its crappy controls.

I ended up playing Two Worlds 2 right after it and that game is infinitely better and so much more fun and non linear. But Two Worlds never got any praise even though its a much better game then the witcher 2.

It comes down to linear gameplay for me, Witcher 2 forced you down a really linear path the entire time I played it, who knows if it ever opened up, i was bored before i could find out.

I even liked Kingdoms of Amalur slightly more then witcher 2. even though that game is fairly boring and has weak combat like in witcher 2
