First, bitches.

What the hell?  They changed Triss' VA?  That is NOT OKA--oh, it's Yennefer.  Keep it your pants through a prologue for once, will you Geralt?  Then again, I suppose that was their intention.  The woman was buck naked except for a towel around her hair.  They were intentionally keeping her hair color hidden so you didn't know whether it was Triss or Yennefer.

Witcher 1: Medallion on the corner of the screen vibrates when near magic or danger.  Fits the lore perfectly, not annoying, but not usually helpful either.

Witcher 2: Touch medallion, highlight usable stuff around you.  Does not fit lore, reuse timer annoying as sin, pretty helpful though.

Witcher 3: Hold right mouse button to turn on Spidey Witcher Senses.  Highlights usable stuff, blurs edges of screen.  Coming soon, a mod to remove those ill thought out blurring edges for the people they give headaches to.  God willing.

Jesus, you guys.  I picked "Just tell me a story" difficulty and I'm getting surprise buttsecks by random monsters.  This game on the highest difficulty must be like getting getting your sack crushed by a boa constrictor.

Game keeps with the tradition of traders in The Witcher Universe.  If you can sell an item for 5 gold, it would cost 800 to buy.  Worse markup than Nintendo's bullshit consoles.  ...  Okay, maybe not that bad, but still pretty bad.

My suggestion so far on Witcher 3 difficulty. Spam Quen sign as much as possible. That bitch will absorb a blow or two and stamina comes back relatively quick. Helps alot.

This game is pretty fun. There's stuff that I don't like as much, and stuff that I enjoy in other games that isn't in Witcher, but I don't see any 'low quality' anything in The Witcher 3, and I hope CDProjeckt has continued success.

One thing I don't like is the mechanics of character movement. I'm dashing from place to place without meaning to, falling off things I only meant to carefully walk across, etc.

While I think TW3 mostly looks better than DAI, I think that picture above isn't very accurate. There's definitely beautiful characters in DAI, and ugly characters in TW3 - Sera being a derpface is just Sera. I do, however, hope Bioware steps it up with animations and immersive world design in the next Mass Effect (hopefully..) and Dragon Age (definitely) and more. We're definitely at the point where details should matter more, and just 'walking around a beautiful setpiece' should be the bare minimum in AAA RPG design, not the standard. Even TW3's weather changes worked wonderfully.

I won't finish the game. I'll play the first two games first and then return to TW3 in a year or so, when I'll hopefully have the better hardware to play on High-Ultra-Max settings (Medium-Low for now).

Goddamnit, Rif!  Don't go to the gay thing, you're better than that!

and stuff that I enjoy in other games that isn't in Witcher,

A few weeks ago, I was in chat questioning the honest-to-god existance of a single person that enjoys fishing mini-games.  I've seen them in a bunch RPGs, and they're always bad.  Not sometimes, every time.  Since TW3's release, I've seen at least a dozen people bitching about the lack of a fishing mini-game.

And did CDPR hire someone whose sole job it was to around to every treasure, sign post, or otherwise interactable object and place a fucking candle next to every single one so that you always interact with the candle 3 times before the object that matters?

No, it's perfectly accurate.  The games are opposites in this regard.  Women are unrealistically gorgeous in TW3.  With sorceresses it's understandable because all of them (except Triss, she's allergic to magic because lulz) are using illusions.  But even normal women tend to be... well, look at the var Attre sisters.  Holy shit.  Meanwhile, DAI's women are unrealistically fugly.  Josephine is kind of average looking.  The rest of them, I don't think their bodies are producing estrogen.  Let's not even talk about Cassandra.

Unlike BW games, Witcher games are completely disconnected from one another.  They barely even reference either other.  There's no real reason to play them in order.  Unless you're putting it off because you're being a Dwailinf-level graphics whore.  In which case, I recommend a better role model.  Like maybe Jack the Ripper.

lol

(Serious answer here though I know there's very good reason to not respond in this manner, but whatever.)

I actually romance women sometimes in other games and I have no problem with that sort of story happening; any of my appeals to the industry for LGB romance has been to open up choices and allow others, even if a minority of the gaming demographic, to enjoy themselves just as much as the majority. I actually criticized Bioware for not having one more female hetero/bi romance next to only Cassandra and Josephine. I think majority demographics definitely matter, and I just only also think that minority demographics shouldn't be shut out of things if a company can do something for them.

Many of the women in TW3 are absolutely beautiful and I have no problem with *a* game having exclusively hetero romantic/sexual options in the story. I will just also promote there being more options than just that, for my own sake for the sake of others. I don't mind Geralt being depicted as heterosexual, but I'll also hope that if there is another Witcher property game after this, one that goes beyond Geralt's story, that the developers let the protagonist we play as to be more. I also wouldn't stand in the way of and would support a game with a clearly (not just RP optional) bisexual or homosexual protagonist, though I tend to think that demographics are not currently on the side of that being highly monetarily supported by others (accusations of SJWing, etc). I can see it being more of a thing 1-2 decades from now, but I won't get into why because that's a whole other topic.

In the opening scene, I of course found myself more attracted to naked Geralt than naked Yennifer, but go CDProjekt RED for not shying away from either! The graphics and art were beautiful for both.

A few weeks ago, I was in chat questioning the honest-to-god existance of a single person that enjoys fishing mini-games.  I've seen them in a bunch RPGs, and they're always bad.  Not sometimes, every time.  Since TW3's release, I've seen at least a dozen people bitching about the lack of a fishing mini-game.

I do not understand people, I really don't.

Ha, really? I normally don't give much of a shit about fishing minigames. At the very least, I think there's much more fun activities that could be put in a game than friggin fishing. For example, that card game rocks!

By 'stuff in other games' I really just meant things that Witcher will never have, like party based combat or more extensive skill-lines (in a way) or deeper visual/etc character customization, and so on. Just things I really do enjoy having in JRPGs, Bioware RPGs, other both bigger and indie RPGs. I was really just saying "Witcher will never have some of the things I prefer", but I'm also fine with that.

Yeah the character movement mechanic (and like you noted, the searching of surroundings) had weaknesses and annoyances. Not terrible, but it should have been nipped in the bud during development ("Do we really need such drastic running movements?" "How about we NOT put that candle there?").

That sucks about the skill system.

No, it's perfectly accurate.  The games are opposites in this regard.  Women are unrealistically gorgeous in TW3.  With sorceresses it's understandable because all of them (except Triss, she's allergic to magic because lulz) are using illusions.  But even normal women tend to be... well, look at the var Attre sisters.  Holy shit.  Meanwhile, DAI's women are unrealistically fugly.  Josephine is kind of average looking.  The rest of them, I don't think their bodies are producing estrogen.  Let's not even talk about Cassandra.

I think DAI went a little far with the 'women are of all kinds!' mentality while TW3 went a little far with the 'women in media like games should be aesthetically (and possibly sexually) pleasing!' mentality. I'm actually not against either, but DAI did seem to be a little in your face with "Look? See? Women that are not what you'd expect in a fantasy game! SEE?" and TW3 looked like it was quite fine with filling the game with ugly men but many less ugly women. I found neither went to ridiculous extremes though; I didn't find DAI to actually have terrible looking *characters* and I didn't find TW3 to be nearly the sexistmisogynisticblahblah that some would claim it to be. I think people exaggerate. But yes, I also think that both games have their issues, DAI probably moreso, and I guess in the way you described (like it was scared to have even one 'objectively beautiful' woman, like those people somehow don't exist (they do)).

Basically I disagree that they're outright opposites, but I do think that your points about this matter are true. I just think characterizing each game as 'Sera vs Yennifer' is a maximum simplification of these valid points.

Unlike BW games, Witcher games are completely disconnected from one another.  They barely even reference either other.  There's no real reason to play them in order.  Unless you're putting it off because you're being a Dwailinf-level graphics whore.  In which case, I recommend a better role model.  Like maybe Jack the Ripper.

I know they're disconnected, but I think that if I get used to TW3, I'll find it even more difficult to get into and complete the first two games.

I know the references are minimal, but I'd still like to know the foundations of the series before I dive into more.

It isn't like Bioware series, but there's still connections that I'd like to make, and since there is a save import, I'd like to make use of that for whatever use it does provide.

Part of my reasoning IS graphics, but I AM okay with playing it on Medium-to-Low on my PC (its technically playable on High but too choppy for my tastes). But if I could just play the first two games first, then turn to TW3 after all sorts of support/patches/mods/DLC are out for it, on a new and better PC, then...why not? There's no rush for me, as I'm not a giant Witcher fan who must see all the content ASAP (as opposed to how I have been with Mass Effect). 

And yeah, I'd prefer to be able to easily play it on High-Ultra. Not because I MUST have it the BEST looking as possible, but because I now know what this game is visually capable of, and what the developers put their work into, and I'd like to experience that in the best way *reasonably* possible. It already looks very good on Medium, but if I have enough reason to try the first two games first and maybe get a better GPU in the meantime, I'll do it.

A bigger deal to me is FPS. I prefer 50-60FPS, not 30-40, when possible. I KNOW 30-40 can work for a LOT of games, but I feel like I don't enjoy it when things aren't completely reactive in Witcher combat. I only get 50-60 FPS on Low, so Medium, while visually okay enough to play, does annoy me sometimes when fighting or in an otherwise graphically intensive area. So a big part of me does consider just getting a better GPU and CPU this year and returning to TW3 to play it on High+ at 50-60 FPS, playing the first two games (and my Skyrim and other playthroughs) in meantime. There's no rush, unlike if I bought the next Mass Effect ('MUST PLAY EVERYTHING NOW').

Witcher 3 is by far my fav gm off all time. As a fan who read the novels and played the other two by god the feels this game brought me. The dialogue setting story quests r amazing. No stupid fetch quests like dragon age inqusition every side quest in this gm was fantastic. I agree rif/dork dragon age inqusition ant even in witcher 3s level. And lets not even get started how i payed 10 dollars for an expansion pass played one of the best dlcs ever and got more content  then some full priced games today.  Yen always and forever though shani was fantastic in hearts of stone. Cant wait for blood and wine in spring hoping for saskia iorveth and yarpen are in it

Not even about Triss.  Look, I'm not saying Yennefer is the worst person in the world.  I can't be sure of that, I don't know everyone.  I'm just saying she's the worst person I know of.

Can't decide?  I'd rather be inside a sarlacc than Yennefer.

I don't like Shani at all, but at least she isn't a psychopath with no fundamental understanding of ethics and doesn't believe the universe exists for her own personal amusement.  If all mages were like Yennefer, Radovid would be the hero of the story.

Congrats to CDPR. TW3 dominated the awards.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - 170 Game of the Year awards
Fallout 4 - 37 Game of the Year awards
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain - 23 Game of the Year awards

I'm elated that Bloodbourne didn't even break the top 3. Eat shit, rabid From fanboys.
