Thats the way it should be,charging for pre-planned DLC release is just lame.Take destiny for example decent fun game but no content got boring fast, and yet they are sitting on 2 expac DLCs. And they are going to charge you for them. GTAV got it right they have released a ton of stuff for free since release. I dont care for what the COD franchise does either with release of map packs and charging you for them(but i think i understand that a little).

Big Kudos for Withcer!!

Normally I'd agree, but CD Projekt Red is pretty good to their customers, so I can see this being done from a genuine desire to not ***** over their fans.

Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660
AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870
RAM 6GB
OS 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1)
DirectX 11

You would be better off waiting for a deal for those cards in which you get the game for free.

My card is okay (Radeon 7950 3GB) but my processor is technically below minimum (i7-860 OC'd to 3.6 GHz). I'm not especially worried about not being able to play but I bought the game for cheap off some Russians so if worst came to worst I'd just have to backlog it until I upgraded.

My 670Ti played Shadow of Mordor and DA: I just fine on high if not ultra. It will most likely be due to some ubersampling thing you can disable, like in Witcher 2 but play the rest High or above.

I'm still tempted to get a new vidcard someday soon just because it feels like time. I like new stuff.

Some time this year I should get a new motherboard/processor just because my 1156 is a technological dead end. Plus it gives me an excuse to use my existing MB/CPU to make a new computer and that's always fun.

Yeah when the mobo, bus, and cpu become the bottleneck and no more ram or or vidcards will help is usually when I rebuild. But my cycle usually means I keep the vid card which is newer, then replace the mobo, ram and CPU. My tower and power supply/fans/cooling set up has been fine for 3 builds now. So it's not really that expensive, considering I already have lots of storage and fast SSDs as well.

I'm on the vid card phase atm. But barely really.

I did. It was a 600 dollar Radeon card. I know little about Radeon so I cannot say with much accuracy where it sits in the current Generation graphics cards. The last I bought was a GTX 580 a couple years back.

Correction, it was a $1,000 Radeon card that was on sale for $700. And I didn't buy it.

It's the current best card you can get. It's stupidly overpowered and completely impractical for the vast majority of people. There are zero games that that card is needed for. There are a few non-gaming applications, but not many.

(1) Say you're going to give all DLC for free
(2) Sell "Expansions" instead of DLC
(3) Profit!

Quote:
CD PROJEKT RED, creators of the open world RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, announce two massive expansions -- Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine

The Witcher is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game, set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher, you play as Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer tasked with finding a child from an ancient prophecy.

“With the development of Wild Hunt coming to an end, the team has embarked upon the creation of two new really big adventures set in The Witcher universe,” says Marcin Iwiński, CD PROJEKT RED co-founder. “We remember the time when add-on disks truly expanded games by delivering meaningful content. As gamers, we’d like to bring that back. We’ve said in the past that if we ever decide to release paid content, it will be vast in size and represent real value for the money. Both our expansions offer more hours of gameplay than quite a few standalone games out there.”

Hearts of Stone will take Geralt on an all-new, 10-hour-plus adventure into the wilds of No Man’s Land and the nooks and alleys of Oxenfurt, where he’ll try to complete a contract from the mysterious Man of Glass. Caught in a thick tangle of deceit, Geralt will need all his cunning and strength to solve the mystery and emerge unscathed.

Blood and Wine, a 20-hour-plus tale that will introduce the all-new in-game region of Toussaint, will take Geralt to a land untainted by war, where an atmosphere of carefree indulgence and knightly ritual masks an ancient, bloody secret.

“While we’re offering the Expansion Pass now, we want to make one thing clear: don’t buy it if you have any doubts. Wait for reviews or play The Witcher and see if you like it first. As always, it’s your call,” Iwiński concludes.

The upcoming expansions will offer gamers new adventures, gear and foes and will feature characters both new and dearly missed -- all crafted with maximum attention to detail and quality by the joint forces of CD PROJEKT RED’s Warsaw and Cracow studios.

Hearts of Stone will premiere in October, while Blood and Wine is slated for release in the first quarter of 2016.

Both expansions will be available on all three platforms: Xbox One, PC, PlayStation® 4.

For more information on obtaining the expansions, please visit buy.thewitcher.com

Ultimately, I can't begrudge them wanting to release additional content and charging for it as long as it's good quality and not something cut from the base game as a money grab. I bought a number of expansions back in the day when they all came on discs and these do seem to offer as much or more content than many base games nowadays. As long as they're not priced the same as a full game(I think BW cost 2/3rds of the original game's price), I can deal with it.

That said, it does seem a bit disingenuous of them after the DLC announcement.

I don't really care, so much, as I got a good smirk out of it.

I'll personally play it at launch, be done before the first "expansion" comes out and likely never return to it because that's how I wind up playing all those games. Still never played the Bioshock Infinite or Metro: Last Light DLC content, for instance, despite enjoying both base games.

Seriously, Burial at Sea is DLC done right. Decent length, new areas, new toys, a different approach to combat (when playing as Elizabeth), and the storyline not only compliments the main game's story, but wraps up the whole series in a fairly satisfying way.

As to the Witcher stuff, if it's even half as good as it looks like it's going to be, I won't begrudge them selling some additional content. Especially considering that they give a 20% discount for having the first two games. Seriously, what other company does that?

At medium-high settings and 1600x1050 resolution, I get 40-50fps with a few dips. Controls feel a little wonky but I might just need to get used to them. Had to lower my mouse sensitivity to 75% though because it was twitchy as ****.

I had to lower the settings to high to get a decent frame rate, but I knew I'd have to do that anyway. My card is finally starting to show it's age, but it's still fairly capable. Even with the lowered settings the game looks **** good. I'm playing with a controller and the controls are a bit twitchy that way too. It's nothing I won't be able to get used to, but for now, it's a bit annoying running right passed things. So far, I've gotten to the first little village and started on some side quests. I've got my eye on a new body armor once I hit level two, which shouldn't take too much longer.

I concur playing at high with just a few dips, but feel like I am fighting the camera somewhat with controller. I'm still trying to finish my Kotor run so I just played long enough to get past the tutorial. Looks purty so far, I plan to dig in more soon.

I've overrun every herb so far, I think. Chests are easier since their boxiness actually stops you whereas you run through the bushes. Plus the "E" (action) prompt shows up before you can actually activate it.

I'm at about the same spot. Hit town then ran a side quest and then just wandered off looking for stuff to kill. Found a cellar full of loot and managed to get a new sword and some gloves. Sort of slow getting started though and all the crafting stuff looks a bit daunting.

Yeah that is a logic problem for RPG's that stick with the same character. Reset to level 1. "You want me to show you the basics? *cough for Ciri of course." Maybe he takes long breaks and gets out of shape hanging out at the local tavern and wenchery in between episodes.

Now that would be funny for an RPG to do. Just make your character look kinda sloppy and doughy when you start but he eventually gets back into fighting form around level 5-10 ish.

Did a couple side quests. Roamed the land. Collected many loots found places of power and even defeated level 5 Deserter Leaders. Still Level 1 (barely). Guess I should do the contract and main quest to get some more XP. But I did have fun being free to roam and check out ? marks. I'm also getting the combat back. Quen up, Hold parry or time it. Doge around, smack the doge out of stuff and Igni it because why not, everyone likes fire.

Had a lot of fun tonight looking forward to the holiday weekend for some day long rawr.

Start exploring those question marks on the map. The ones that lead to Places of Power will grant you a temporary stat boost, and more importantly, an ability point. With enough exploring you can have a level one character with several abilities maxed out.

Yup doing that. Did all the secondary quests in town except the contract. (Should do that next) Even found some scavenger hunts and additional secondary quests. I had some house work to do tonight so don't think of it as me thinking the game is moving too slow. I was basically doing a quest or ? mark then tooling around the house getting some stuff done in between. I'm really enjoying it so far. Especially since I turned off depth of field and chromatic aberration.

I always feel like I should give those fake blurs a chance. Maybe they have gotten better. But your eyes don't work like that IRL. If something is off in the distance and you focus on it, well then it becomes clearer. With fake depth of field it stays blurry forever until you get close. I guess that matches the experience of a nearsighted person, but I pretty much hate it in video games.

I mentioned this before but hey you post on a site for 15 years you tell the same stories, after a while. ;)

Also falling off cliffs is real people. I can totally make that... "Reload from nearest save?"

Completed White Orchard. Did all marks, secondary quests etc. Crafted the most excellent Serpent Silver Sword, did not have the means to do the Steel version yet but have an adequate steel sword as well. Upgraded my Witcher armor. Have all potions, bombs, oils, etc from the early area. Killed up the Griffon. Level 4. Focusing on Fast Sword and spells, especially fond of Igni.

Got a bath and a shave. ;)

I think they tried to model inertia on Geralt. I am getting used to the concept and fighting well, dodging parrying and blocking in this system are coming around to me. Really did not have to much trouble in White Orchard over all. Looking forward to more over my holiday weekend after work tomorrow night.

I almost finished up White Orchard. I hit a glitched quest, and I'm still trying to find the key to open that **** chest in the basement of the hut by the wind mill. Except for that I'm done with the area for now. I was able to do both Serpent swords, and they've made a strong impact on my fighting. I've fully upgraded fast attack, and have two points each in strong attack and battle trance. My style is to pop Quen and just wade in, so I'm focusing mainly on melee skills for now. I probably won't be playing much more until the weekend. I haven't slept much this week and I'm really starting to feel it...

As a side note, is anyone else amused/disgusted by the whiny ******* on the internet crying because the game doesn't look as good as the trailer from 2013?

I'm playing it at medium-high settings and getting about 50+ fps on average now that I disabled Depth of Field (which I usually think looks fake anyway). So I guess I don't care much if the 2013 trailer matches Super Zesty Ultra Mode 'cause I ain't playing that anyway. I'm completely happy with how it looks. That's with an AMD card too so I'm sure if I was using an Nvidia card, I'd be getting frame rates of a hundred thousand fps.

I've heard of other people having trouble because they hit a quest objective before taking on the quest and then the quest gets bugged. I already found the windmill treasure via wandering and opened the unlocked boxes so I'm sure when I take the quest now, it'll be glitched.

Sooo, for the people who have been playing it, how does it compare with Witchers 1 and 2? I tried playing both but I found that they suffered from a pacing issue where everything moved extremely slowly. Is 3 better paced?

I haven't played 1 & 2 but 3 so far is pretty slow out of the gate compared to open world fantasy games like Skyrim or DA:I. I haven't played much yet, partially because I have yet to get hooked but I think it has potential. I'll spend more time with it this weekend and see what I think.

If I'd paid full price I'd probably be disappointed. Not because I think it's a bad game but because it feels like a pretty standard fantasy game so far and that's not $60 worth of amazing to me.
