The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2014, PC/NextGen): Game Informer March 2013 [Updated OP]

Ok wow, the text is small. I don't want to miss anything good. Here's a small few things I got that I loved.

World supposedly 20% bigger than Skyrim's
30-40 minutes to cross world on Horseback
New streaming technology (CDRED Engine 3)
Geralt's Memory is restored
No chapters/acts
Dude is fucking DONE fighting for everyone else
Everything from solving MYSTERIES to slaying monsters
Coming out on "all top-of-the-line" consoles - I'd say that confirms next-gen is in.

I'll be back with more.

CDRED Engine 3?

This is gonna go great with my soon-to-be 4k monitor. My body and PC can not be more ready.
 
Thanks for the reply EatChildren from the now-closed thread.

I just bought The Witcher 2 for 360. Before I begin, how much of TW1 would I need to know?

Definitely doesn't make things up as he goes along.
I HATE how I didn't finish Witcher 2. Stupid waste of money laptop!

I didn't get much further than besting Letho the first time you duel him. I feel like that's still pretty early in the game?

Currently polling second in Australia's federal election (first in the Gold Coast), this feral may one day be your Bogan King.

Read a summary of the first game on Wikipedia or something. It really helps to know what happened, Geralt's place in the world, and who Triss is.

HOLY FUCKING SHEEEEEEIT.

And indeed the companion is Ciri, almost a main character at the level of Geralt in the books.

Wanna hear a good joke? Waste your time helping me! LOL!
He looks old, I don't like the beard.

That's probably not even a girl on the horse next to him, lame.

Wild Hunt is a terrible name.

Where are all the women at?

Comparisons to Skyrim?

RIP in peace Witcher series.

None. All of what happened in the Witcher 1 is explained in a nicely edited video on youtube and the Codec/in game encyclopedia has all the info of what took place in the past. I jumped in the series just like you did and enjoyed the story and environments greatly.

Sounds good except the console stuff. The world size is a little worrisome too as it's already hinting that it will fall into standard open world design of "fuck we made it too big. Uhh...throw some random shit on the map to make it look not as empty".
