Witcher3 (5)

Let’s face it, The Witcher 3 is a game we’re all excited for. Witcher games set new standards for gaming and graphics (and require massive PC upgrades), plus CD Projekt are bucking the DRM norms. Now, here are some new screenshots to make us drool even more.

Check these images out from PC Format, so pretty!

My body is ready for this next Witcher!

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!
  • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

    Damn, I got W2 recently on special, need to get my ass in gear to play it so that I’m ready for W3

    • John drinks Nuka Cola

      Me too. There are just too many darned games now to try.

      • Mossel

        Im in the same boat!

        • John drinks Nuka Cola

          My problem is that I’m replaying old games even when I have four new unplayed games.
          I thought Mussels were mostly in the sea actually. Or on rocks. Not in boats.

          • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

            Haha, well trolled

          • Mossel

            Im next level like that. I infiltrated the ship and I am currently breeding an army on the lower deck. THE END IS NYE!!

    • Mossel

      lol me too! But I first want to finnish the short games before I tackle this 100+ hour beast.

      • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

        Indeed. Tomb Raider for me currently

        • Mossel

          Im currently juggling between Bioshock 2 (wich kinda bores me) and Alan Wake. Tomb Raider is an epic game! Would say that was my second best game this year, after Infinite.

          • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

            Cool. I need to finish Alan Wake after TR. But, but, NO TIME

          • Mossel

            Yeah time… I remember that.

          • Kromas

            In 17 hours my pre-loads for SR4 and X-Com unlocks. I think I have a better chance doing data recovery on my save game hdd for witcher 1 and 2.

          • John drinks Nuka Cola

            I’m juggling Dead Space three co-op with a friend and then replaying something else…my name was inspired by Admiral’s idea. Thank you Admiral. I am not stealing the idea, just testing it.

          • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

            Riiiight.

            :P

          • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

            BS2 was fun, BUT, not as much as BS1

          • Skyblue

            You must get your hands on The Last of Us. I played Infinite first which I loved but TLOU was just amazing.

          • John drinks Nuka Cola

            I really want to try Last of Us. Just need to dust off my PS3. It hasn’t been used in months. Hoping I’ll find it somewhere second hand though.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            why havent you used your ps3 in months?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            He rediscovered dignity trollol

          • TiMsTeR1033

            dignity se gat… Most games on pc are on consoles…. Just you guys get em cheaper on these steam sales…

          • John drinks Nuka Cola

            Yes, and there are other advantages. But I don’t want to get into that again. I do enjoy my PS3, make no mistake.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            good!!! otherwise id have to open a can of shitto on ya now lol

          • John drinks Nuka Cola

            I have a PC

          • Mossel

            TLOU sounds amazing, alas, the gaming gods restricted me to only one platform.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I loved Alan Wake I thought had a great story and flipping twisted, Bioshock 2 wasnt bad…. wasnt great either…

          • Mossel

            Thats my feeling as well, although it’s not bad, it’s not exactly great either. That level where you jam on the stage at those old rocker’s house was insane!! Loved it!

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Yeah that was great! i really wanna still play the addons like american nightmare ect… they are very good apparently

          • Mossel

            I have American Nightmare waiting in my backlog. Got both on steam sal for like $4!

  • ElimiNathan

    Iv’e never liked The Witcher series, not sure why

    • silverscorpio

      I feel the same about the Fallout series. It is a good game but I cant get into it. Luckily I love the The Witcher series. I just dont have the time.

      • John drinks Nuka Cola

        Someone say Fallout?

        • Sargon

          Fallout New Something Really Soon Please KKThxBai Bethesda.

          • John drinks Nuka Cola

            Yes please

    • TiMsTeR1033

      I like the way it looks and stuff but the way it played wasnt that good… but then again I was heavy in to fps then and didnt give witcher a chance…. Still got Witcher 2 at home havent even tried it..

      • ElimiNathan

        Witcher 2 is the only one I’ve played, and didn’t like the way it played…

        • TiMsTeR1033

          wasnt it turn based?

          • ElimiNathan

            Nope… But had that kinda feeling to it.

  • Hammersteyn

    Looks like Skyrim, minus dragons, plus Witchers and more boobies!

    • Admiral Chief Raider of Tombs

      XD indeed

    • Mossel

      I know, right?!

    • Skyblue

      That’ll work.

      EDIT: It actually looks much prettier than Skyrim.

      • Hammersteyn

        Much much prettier.

    • TiMsTeR1033

      boobies!!!!!! you lied no boobies :(

      • Hammersteyn

        Hehe, but you know that there will be.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I want this so bad, but also reminds me I need to play the enhanced versions of 1 & 2. Stupid time, always running through the hourglass.

    • CypherGate

      There is NEVER enough time anymore. Sucks balls. I want to play The Witcher 1 enhanced edition, but when i first played it the fighting mechanics were to clunky. I just uninstalled and that was that. Frustrated me.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        The fighting was okay once you got the hang of the timing. I’d like to play it without the level loading taking 5 minutes. I could literally go boil the kettle & make a cup of coffee while waiting, and I mean literally, literally. I used to read my book while loading a new level.

        • CypherGate

          lol damn thats crazy lol Enhanced Edition fixes these things???

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            It’s supposed to yes, plus adds a little bit of new content as well.

        • TiMsTeR1033

          need more ram??

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I see what you’re doing ;)

          • TiMsTeR1033

            need a faster cpu?? witcher 3 gonna stutter like a chinese hooker coming off a crack binge?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            This is Witcher 3 damn it, not GTA V – although the booze & drug effects can make it interesting at times heh

          • CypherGate

            Witcher 2 destroyed my pc so need to build a new one for Witcher 3. Pcs dont last long with these games. One time builds only lol

          • RinceThisandbeAbsurd

            Nice ;)

      • John drinks Nuka Cola

        Same here

  • Sargon

    When does this come out? I must ready my wallet for the Hunt!

  • JHN

    Cant wait for this! must ready my wallet for next gen.

  • Rock789

    Another game I am super psyched for! LOVED Witcher 2 on Xbox. Just sad I couldn’t play Witcher 1… But Witcher 3 shall be mine! Question is, which platform? Hmmm… Mwahahahahaha..

    **cough**

    Sorry…

    • Brady miaau

      you can easily play Witcher 1. Gamersgate or GOG often have it for a cheap, cheap price.

      Just remember to play it like an RPG and get powerful quickly, because people who play the story too fast get stuck and say is bad game. Just grind a little, not even a lot and you are gold.

      • Rock789

        Ooo… Thanks for the tip. Think I’ll check it out this weekend. :-)

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          It’s actually on special on Steam & GOG right now.

  • Rafael Joseph

    Is this just for PC, or will it come to console? Cuz I’m a console kinda guy…

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      It’s headed to Xbox One and Ps4.
