>open world and sandbox games are popular due to Skyrim and Minecraft. Let's ruin Witcher by pandering to these demographics.

No idea. They really undersold their game with the trailers and launch previews. They didn't expect it to become the magnum opus of the medium and GOTG. I'm sure they would've settled for GOTY.

Why couldn't CDPR grow a fucking spine and stick to the combat they designed for the first game, just refine it and enhance it? Are Fromdrones directly responsible for the shitty twitch combat in Witcher 2 and 3?
>>
>>323986396
Witcher should have been "open-world" in the first place

There is no reason to be confined to one area that's a hundred-times smaller, like in the old games

>>
>>323986989
Why not, its suits the game and it was functional. Not everything has to be twitch based, especially if you can't fucking pull it off properly. Witcher 2 combat is a trainwreck and 3rd is almost as bad.
>>
>>323987361
>its suits the game
Yea, I guess it really does suit a shit game

2 is not that bad the third act is kind a weak but it's still worth playing.
>>
>>323988302
Witcher 2 is pretty decent, gives a lot of perspective on Witcher 3, but you don't HAVE to play it.

If you do play Witcher 2, make sure to turn off effects like Bloom and Blur because they're overused to shit
>>
>>323987743
>mods that keeps her new hair and old outfit
Thank you, mods.
>>
>>323988302
Honestly, 2 is a much better game that manages to tell an original story with good political struggles in the Witcher universe. 3 is literally a worse rehash of the books story wise, and the gameplay was absolutely destroyed by every quest turning into "turn on fishbowl vision to follow the red path".
>>
Any tips for someone who just started the game for the first time and chose death march?
>>
>>323985879
It's better than 1 and 2 so what are you complaining about?
1 had shitty, clunky mechanics and the combat in 2 is atrocious. 2 had a better story but slogging through the battles was such a fucking pain at times.
>>
>>323989048
First several levels are difficult, after that not so much if you do plenty of sidequests

If you need health, meditating will refill your Swallow potion if you have Alcholest on you, and Alcholest is very common

Use the FUCK out of Quen (shield sign)

Am I the ONLY one who didn't have a problem with the combat in ANY Witcher game? Am I the only non-autist ever posting in these threads? Even the combat from Witcher 1 was decent enough, even though it was pretty convoluted in some areas (styles + sword types)

At least it was unique.

But she also keeps a lot of things from Geralt
>>

I agree. It is a fantastic video game. Period.
>>
>>323991308

How is Triss not loyal? Two times in the games she tells Geralt she wants to settle down with him (if you go with her path in Witcher 1 and 3)

>Keeping things from him

Yen also does this
>>
>>323991727
She's as loyal as you can get man.
She says fuck you to the Lodge knowing the full consequences of that.

And then she literally dies for Geralt.
>>
>>323990478

I hear you, Anon.
I didn't play Witcher 1 but I don't think W2 or W3 combat is bad at all, it's just normal rolling, parrying and hitting.
It won't wow your mind but it works fine.

it'll be 100% worth it, some of my favorite parts of TW3 were references to or meeting characters from previous games. You can tell how far CDPR has come. Here are some tips, though:
For Witcher 1, stick to the main quests, side quests don't do anything except for a side quest where you craft or recover some Raven armor which you can start with in TW2 but it quickly becomes shit after you leave the tutorial level.

For Witcher 2, make a save game right before the quest where you choose to go Iorveth or Roche. Play both paths. Save your game after the credits (the game will create a post-credits save which you can transfer over to Witcher 3) pick the one you want. The only decision that truly matters here is the one regarding Letho. Choose wisely.
>>
>>323993276
>it quickly becomes shit after you leave the tutorial level.

This really bothered me

Supposedly the best Witcher gear out there is beaten by generic hardened leather armor

I know it's because of balance reasons but fuck

>dialogue system is good
>good sense of progession
>good skill and leveling system
>world is full of settlements in between wide areas of solid scenery which are full of enemies, ingredients, or small interesting locations

why do people shit on it? what is their criticism?

The biggest complaints are the wonky combat and the reliance on the minimap

There is a mod to fix the latter, though

>>
>>323994618
>reliance on the mini map

but from what i saw that's wrong. unlike skyrim where the questgivers just tell you to go to x location, every quest i saw in tw3, the quest giver gave very specific geographic directions that you could follow if you remembered them

i mean of course if youre just going to go around and grab as many quests as you can find before you do any of them youre going to get confused, but you shouldnt play the game like a shitter in the first place

That mind-numbingly shallow combat and an empty world to explore was perfectly acceptable as long as your game looks pretty, has tits and a plot only pseudo-intellectuals who play nothing but shallow AAA games would think is deep and well-written.

NG+ is basically replaying the whole game again with all of the items and skillpoints from your previous character (besides Gwent cards)

Obviously it's made to be much harder, and you can respec your character and change your difficulty at the start of it
>>
>>323995736
do you know how fire works? or explosions?

igni isnt a particularly powerful explosion since its just a burst of magic flame, so there isnt a shockwave to break the shield. the fire is basically like a plasma, which can be deflected by a barrier, like a shield

if youre angry that the shield isn't burnt away, you realize you need to hold dry wood to a flame for a while before it starts burning in any capacity, right? igni is just a short burst and is in now way capable to setting a cured wooden shield alight in any capacity meaningful enough to make it break down before the burst of flame is over

Expansion has a better story and boss battles than the base game. You should play it post-game because the game is clearly designed for experienced players who have the loot and skill points for lv 30+ monsters.

There's a ton of great sidequests you probably haven't completed if you're only 75 hours in and I'm not talking about the question marks.

>>323989048
Did the exact same thing my first playthrough, and regret nothing. Made me appreciate the game more.

Quen is the most important thing. Have it up whenever possible.

Dont get Sun and Stats. Its a terribly weak passive that only gets weeker as you level up. It also cheapens Death March into a "just wait 15 minutes for my health to regenerate" run, and is a complete waste of a slot.

Melee can be an absolute beast. Specialize into light attacks and get those melee damage bonuses from mutagens. Also, don't even attempt to spend in crossbow skills.

Take it slow. Spend time using oils and preparing before battles. Do all the sidequests for the much needed exp, and the game gets progressively easier as you get stronger and more confident in melee. And read about monster weaknesses and exploit them heavily.

Seriously. I wish the game's world was a varied as this little quest's areas. Though, I guess that would take away from what makes the Witcher world what it is.
>>
>>323989656
I like her MORE after reading the books

Because she has a character arc

In the books she's a manipulative cunt who's only really looking out for herself (admittedly she cares about Ciri too, but she puts herself before Ciri) but in the games she goes through an arc - in the first game she's still basically book Triss, in the second that's still kind of how it is but she's becoming better with all the shit going on, and by the third game she's legitimately a good person

Triss is basically "bad times can bring out the best in people": the character

I mean he knows Geralt, Roche, Ves, and Thaler are all friends, but he expects Geralt to not defend them? Is he fucking high or something?

Not to mention with the small amount of troops he uses for the ambush, Roche and Ves by themselves should've been able to win the fight. Thaler isn't a fighter but he's no slouch either.

It's the one quest in the entire game where I really felt like someone was ridiculously out of character.

The hilarious thing is that she's far more likable in the games than in the books

There's a damn good reason NOBODY from Geralt's past brings up Yennefer when he can't remember her

Also there are a few jokes in TW1 and TW2 where people who forget Yenn's name but know of her refer to her as "Guinevere", which is pretty appropriate

The Keira fight is much more justifiable since there are literal witch hunts and she's not exactly doing her best in terms of mental health as a result

But it doesn't. There are a few good quest lines and interesting lot found among the literal countless side quests, but at the end of the day they were all the same fucking thing over and over and over again until you got sick of running around extremely expansive lands doing the same god damn fucking thing you just did for 60 hours and decide to just do the main quest instead. I like open world games. Witcher 3 did it fucking terribly.
>>
>>324002792
The point is that Dijkstra should have known better.

I mean, even if we want to assume he thought Geralt would leave (which he shouldn't have assumed) then his first reaction after Geralt says "Not going to let you kill my friends" should've been "Uh... Ok then. Guess I'll be going since if I try to fight you I'm definitely dead"

The sidequests weren't THAT bad, but it was such a slog getting in a boat and going to the points of interest. I wanted to check them all out for the sake of completion, but even I have my limits. It's just the exact same situation every single time with the same rewards with nothing but the boring sea surrounding you and a bunch of sirens that stop you exiting the boat until you shoot them in the head with the crossbow while they try to get on board.

Its just perfect. Ciri will be a kind ruler, and you know she wont kill all nonhumans and witches.

>Ciri fulfils her dream and becomes a witcher

But it isn't

Because if Ciri has the choice between becoming Empress or becoming a Witcher, she chooses to become Empress

Pretty much the main theme of the game is letting Ciri make her own choices - and she will always choose to become the Empress if she can

Not to mention it makes the most sense in terms of Geralt's story

wether or not thats best, ciri being a witcher makes least sense.
shes a woman with periods and other biological needs, shed have to endure solity for extended periods, negotiate contracts with men all the time, no mutations=no potions
her being an empress makes most sense, or just do something with her unique powers. like scholarly explore the worlds and tell others about it

>>324004716
Yeah, they're so used to petty nationalistic bickering that they bring to every board.
>>
>>324004989
That's the point

If you don't introduce her to Emhyr, she has no idea she could become the Empress

Thus you are literally depriving her of choice

Thus you are a shitty parent

>>324006689
She knows a lot of people. Damn it, she was rised with the king of Skellige (any of the brothers) She has a lot of friendly contacts with the no-humans. Except for Philippa, she can trust the Loge. Also to be a good ruler you must be a slave first. She is not a posh noble living in a ivory tower. She knows her people.

I thought the plague lady quest was very well made.

can't fight evil with evil . there are no lesser evils anon, Geralt keeps saying it all the time

But she has no experience with leading others or with policy in general.
Plus, she doesn't know any of the high figures in Niflgaard, the people she is gonna deal with the most.
Realistically speaking, she would cause a civil war within a year.
But of course, in the lore, she would be a good ruler, because she is a mary sue

Why did he pull that shit again? Its like he had a death wish.

>>324008508
yes, you can, if everyone is so afraid that she might appear out of thin air and kill them they will obey.

She just needs to kill an excessive amount of people in the beginning.

It's Witcher, everybody fucks everybody. Is Geralt even mad about it in the books?
>>
>>324008239
>she is able to parry bolts in flight
This is pretty bullshit, even in the books, Geralt is barely able to parry two in a row and he says one is already fucking hard.
>>
>>323985879
>That mind-numbingly shallow combat and an empty world to explore was perfectly acceptable as long as your game looks pretty, has tits and a plot only pseudo-intellectuals who play nothing but shallow AAA games would think is deep and well-written.

the first time, yes, but he gets cucked so hard he gets used to it.

He does it a few times in the books, and not even under the influence of potions. Shits easy for him

"Lets make a good video game" I imagine.

Some elements were a bit strange but I appreciate that they tried and change things between games somewhat. Maybe they pooped on "muh lore" a bit with the WF but besides that I genuinely enjoyed the game and had a great time playing every element of it. It rewarded exploration both with gear and with fun, amusing and entertaining surprises and if it isnt your idea of a fun game then we probably just have different tastes

So why did keira go with Lambert? She seemed to be very into geralt and no one ever explained why they suddenly hooked up.
>>
>>324012580
Lambert is discount geralt

>Baron's men start raping and pillaging when he fuck offs with his wife
>Can't stop it

NO ONE THINKS OF THE PEASANTS
>>
>>324012580
Nah, she and Geralt were just friends with benefits.
There weren't actually any romantic feelings between them

what a ride

>>324012580
Maybe because Geralt was fucking Triss and or Yennefer.

She was never into Geralt anyway, she just slept with him to use him. As they said.

Now release cyber2077 you faggots

>>324013619
Yeah but keiras pussy was smashed by geralts giant dick. Its all loose and smells like Geralt now.
>>
>>324013856
Yeah but why choose Lambert?
>>
It was pretty, the writing and voice acting was top notch. As a "cinematic" adventure game it was a near masterpiece.

But everything else felt lazily tacked on, especially the open world, which was just one giant loot chest with a few tiny, linear dungeons.
>>
>>324013791
sauce?
>>
>>324014057
She already proved herself to be an idiot by wanting to go to Radovid. Choosing Lambert is nothing compared to that stupidity.

Why did they job out Eskel to that Wild Hunt faggot instead of Lambert?

Why was there no quest with Eskel outside of Kaer Morhen?

Why is Eskel the only surviving person with no possible happy ending?

Why did the best Witcher bro get fucked over so hard?

Eskel... Had a hard life

Don't roll, dodge instead. Make use of mutagen decorations, upgrade igni. It's a lot easier after you get the basics

I liked this guy's explanation.

Sadly most people are too thick to even begin to comprehend how much Witcher did for storytelling in AAA videogames.
