  • Anewme…Again

    This probably will be the game that will make me unseal my PS4.
    I can’t wait to play this.

    • Jadfish

      wait, you have a ps4 lying around sealed? You could be playing Resogun on that thing man!

  • passthegrenadeplease

    I think I need a new pair of pants after watching that trailer, next year can’t come soon enough.

  • Masa

    That trailer…those visuals…HOLY BALLS!!!
    Makes Dragon Age 3 look last gen…….

  • Shippoyasha

    I have a feeling my PC will catch fire running this game. And my PC is no slouch either. I hope it looks great on PS4 at least.

    • flameraver64

      My PC might be able to run it just barely, but it’ll catch fire because the game is gonna be so awesome

      • http://www.sunsetreflector.blogspot.com/ MyDearGirls

        Flame raver hahaha!!!

  • Lynx

    I’ve always been interested in getting into these games, especially with 3 on the horizon.

    Would anyone recommend them to some who likes story-driven games and can stand dated combat, if said story is good enough?

    • flameraver64

      Yes, the main complaint people have is the combat (though I really like it), if you don’t mind the combat the story is absolutely awesome. Not just the story but the ambiance and the atmosphere and lore of the game is just amazing

    • DesmaX

      Story is great on both games, and Witcher 2 has a pretty fine combat system (honestly).

      I recommend it, especially seeing how cheap the games can be on sales

    • Masa

      story-driven games and can stand dated combat…dude Witcher is right up your alley, also the books are great too, they say you can play this without playing the other games but you will be completely lost, plus its nice knowing the characters etc when you run into them.

      • subsamuel01

        I heard they revamped the combat engine “Attacking an enemy feels more natural and smooth, unlike older games where you had to lock onto enemies constantly.
        What we saw in Batman: Arkham Asylum is a very cool system, and I don’t want to draw any comparisons, but that’s definitely part of the motivation for us.”

      Since the original Diablo, The Witcher’s been the only RPG made outside of Japan that managed to grab my attention. It also smashed it into a wall, beat it to a pulp, threw it out the window and took a poop on it. In space.

      They are amazing games and should be experienced everyone even slightly interested in RPGs.

    • TrueDefault

      Witcher 1′s combat is not that dated. It’s just a little different than your standard RPGs in which you have to buff with potions before wandering into dangerous areas. I actually enjoyed the combat to be honest, although the story wasn’t that great at people said.

  • flameraver64

    Oh my god that Collector’s Edition looks amazing, and CDPR seems to be one of the best devs in terms of physical releases, look at ALL that bonus stuff just for getting a normal copy!

    • British_Otaku

      It is like it wasn’t enough to be famous for how cool they are with digital rights management, they just had to have great physical games releases too. :P

  • DesmaX

    First reason to buy a current-gen console.

    Still have to go back to 2.

  • nathaniel

    it’s beautiful O_O i just hope the CE isn’t overpriced

    • flameraver64

      $150. Not sure how much CE’s with statues cost, but it’s kinda expensive. Still got it though

  • friendly neighborhood_dude

    That regular edition is soooo good. I can’t believe they’d put all that stuff in the standard flavor. It appears there’s still hope in the gaming industry.

    • British_Otaku

      Not to belittle the service, but it is actually fairly standard.

      Game – Of course.
      Manual – Of course.
      Map – A detailed print out which they fold into each release, Elder Scrolls and GTA do the same.
      Soundtrack – In the case that the soundtrack isn’t licensed, it isn’t out of the question to have all of it there. Senran Kagura does this with preorders, generally it isn’t done when the soundtrack has complex rights or is planned to be sold. I suppose I have only seen indie PC games like Super Meat Boy do it with no strings attached.

      It is still a dope standard edition though. Given that Mirror’s Edge 2 probably won’t have a manual or OST with the game, I’ll be pleased to pick it up.

      • flameraver64

        Well, depends on how the manual turns out, a lot of modern games have had tiny manuals (and PC games usually just have a “here’s how to install the game” manual), if there’s even IS a manual included.

        But there’s also a compendium with the regular edition. Not sure what’s in it (probably not that big) but it’s still a bonus for a $50 or $60 game considering what other regular editions include

        • British_Otaku

          I guess good manuals (full colour, artistic drive like making it seem like a manual for a soldier, comic which an otaku hero like Travis Touchdown might read or guide like Arkham Asylum and healthy amount of pages in many fields) are pretty rare and this could still have a weak or average manual.

          This is definitely looking good though. I wouldn’t be surprised if the stuff in the regular edition was a preorder bonus or limited edition for some other games (which try to spice it up with DLC, but that’s as shallow as stickers).

          • flameraver64

            Oh yeah, those awesome manuals are definitely rare (which sucks, because I’m a sucker for good manuals). But definitely hoping these items aren’t limited or first editions. If I remember correctly, I bought Witcher 2 a while after it was released but I still got a lot of the physical goodies

          • http://www.sunsetreflector.blogspot.com/ MyDearGirls

            The last time I saw a full-colour manual for a PC game was. There was no such time.

        • http://www.sunsetreflector.blogspot.com/ MyDearGirls

          They have a coloured map of a pig with a fake seal that is actually part of the letter paper but no colour for the manuals. The character modelling and actions could improve too.

      • http://www.sunsetreflector.blogspot.com/ MyDearGirls

        I think in future if companies want to cut costs and release games with no manuals they should just make them free-to-play digital downloads.

  • Chim_era

    Those graphics …. Now I’m really booking a trip to Krakow to break into their studio :p

  • fairysun

    The Witcher 3 will be available in these language: English, Polish, German, French, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese and Japanese (full voiceover); Arabic, Italian, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Czech, Hungarian, Latin America Spanish, Korean (subtitles).

    YES!! playing Witcher 3 in Polish is probably the best immersion we can have.

    However, I am still wondering how well Japanese voice fare in this game.

    And DAT collector edition.

    • British_Otaku

      I’ll play it in Japanese, just because I can on one of my runs of the game if it is offered for the European release (hopefully all releases will be the same or rather released at the same time). Pretty sure, they will secure some significant voices for the Japanese track but there is no guarantee that they will be as well forged as other ones.

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        Gerurartu offu Rivia!

    • http://truner.beluva.hu/ Truner Razer

      I’ll be playing it with the Polish dub. No matter what I watch or play, having the original, intended dub is the best way to experience things! (:

      Plus, it really adds to the world of The WItcher in this case.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    I wonder if i3 and gtx750ti can run this on minimum? I’m not planning on getting PS4 just yet as I’m really short on money…

    • MrTyrant

      I think you could change the i3 for an i5 or i7. I believe the graphic card would do just fine or you could change it for a 760 at least.
      My case is even worse because my grachic card is really outdated and I also need to change the power supply.

      • Crimson_Cloud

        Maybe I can squeeze some for i5, but a new graphic card, I don’t think so. There are few ps3 titles that I want to get by the end of the year so I’ll skip it for now. Hope you get some cash in order to buy a new card. It’s almost mandatory now.

        I really went all out when I was getting a new rig few months back, although for a good deal there weren’t any other PSU then the CoolerMaster. I may have to switch to Corsair in the near future. Man, good thing I’m spending less and less on food…

    • Eilanzer

      nah you can run minimun just fine with ANY game. And if the game suffer some slowdown…Just tweak you nvidia settings to performance and make use of multithread.

      • Crimson_Cloud

        Ok, thanks. I get used to graphics really quickly so it’s performance that I need. ˇˇ

  • Kit

    50$ for The Witcher 3 on Amazon :v

  • Nan

    polystone, tho…expeeeeensive. tho CE prices are on the rise anyway…not that I won’t go for it if it’s not too crazy!

    • flameraver64

      It’s up on GameStop, $150. Pretty pricy but I got it

      • Nan

        Ooof. I’ve got Xillia 2 for $130 in August, I guess February is far away enough…

        • flameraver64

          Oh, I guess $100+ is the standard price for CEs with statues then. Makes the $150 not so bad then

  • Sapitntapit

    Damn, this looks really good.
    I still have to play the first two…I have them but my PC can’t run them hehehe

    • subsamuel01

      Witcher 2 is on Xbox 360 too.

      • Sapitntapit

        Yeah, I’ve thought about grabbing the Silver edition for $20, but I still have to beat the first.

        • subsamuel01

          I was going to do the same thing but the first game feels so outdated.

  • Eilanzer

    Will the game make use of the old saves?

  • leingod

    That was gorgeous. I’m speechless :O

  • Brimfyre

    And just like that, I’m sold on Next Gen.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Next-gen does not interest me. *watches The Witcher 3 trailer* I’m sold to next-gen now XD.

  • http://truner.beluva.hu/ Truner Razer

    So next year, I’ll be able to lay my Witcher 2 medallion (every time I go outside, no matter where I go or what I do) to rest and wear a proper one! AWE-FRICKING-SOME!

  • MrTyrant

    Welp GOTY 2015 confirmed right there. At least with this game my next year is made.

  • leingod

    Gorgeous game, sick collector’s edition… I need it.

  • Lloyd Christmas

    It’s strange. I’ve never played any of the previous games but I am still soooo pumped for this to come out. Maybe it’ the GoT vibes I got from it.

  • http://www.sunsetreflector.blogspot.com/ MyDearGirls

    I hope they improve on how Triss looks, and I hope to meet Roche again. In the game he was a great friend and a loyal ally.
