I understand. I really do. They don't want to release a video of a half-finished product. But showing some NEW sort of gameplay shouldn't be too risky to do, right?
I just finished reading the freshly-released English translation of the 3rd book, and it was ***STELLAR***... I highly recommend all three books to any Witcher fan.
Even if you "follow" a game on any gaming site, there is not a guarantee that you will get to see anything new updates when they supposedly arrive - it just means that you get to watch any associated content, even if it's recycled.
Tell you what - you are better off following CD Projekt's official newsletters for updates on Witcher 3 than following anything that dribbles out of gaming sites. ;)
Looking forward to trying this game out. Never played the previous ones, been waiting for Playstation version. Looks cool!
Gamespot: Please review the videos before you get people's hopes up in thinking you posted something new. This is especially critical for games like Witcher 3.
Why am i watching this again??? don't get me wrong its a great trailer but it was released on E3
Gamespot on time once again....
@Pyrosa I will look into that.
@Pyrosa Do you need to play the games to understand the book? Being a PS user, I've never played any of the previous ones, but I'd want to know the story before I started the new game.
@Pyrosa I prefer playing the game
in fact i wish i had the time to read them....
@Pyrosa there are fan translated copies of all the books which you can find online too and yes, the books are awesome!
Then why are you even watching this? You do realized that you have wasted your time, don't you?
@b0sse This was for the Japanese. It's new for them.
@vildanturic TGS = Tokyo Game Show -> Tokyo -> Japan -> Japanese letters... SCANDALOUS!
@smoker1993 Just as I feared. Oh well, no need to watch it then.
@MikeRobe867 @Pyrosa No, actually it could be otherwise, because books were released long before games. First Sapkowski's short story (simply called 'The Witcher') was printed by "Fantastyka" magazine in 1986. First Witcher book was published in 1990 and the last in 1999. But no, it's not necessary, but I recommend it. If you want to know this universe more, you should definitely play previous games. Both games are very good. Books have even BETTER story. It's a shame that official English releases are taking so long. In Poland The Witcher books had already six editions - last one in 2011.
Maybe he clicked on it for the same reason everyone else did. He assumed it was a new trailer, not an old trailer with "new" subtitles. Gamespot intentionally titled the video very vaguely to suggest a new trailer in the hopes of site traffic and clicks which generate revenue for them, and wasted time for us.
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. ;)
