    I have mixed emotions about the Blood and Wine expansion...one one hand it should be another great adventure, with a new area to explore but it also means that's it for the game.

    I am still hoping they are going to release the Redkit 3 at some point to the public. If they did, the modding community would really take off.

      Blood and Wine will be Madonna of the Carnation

      Bubbles: What Mr Lahey?
      Jim Lahey: ...****-quake.

        I don't know how long the Hearts of Stone was supposed to be but I got a solid 10 hours out of it. I know Blood and Wine is supposed to be even longer.

          They were aiming at 10 for Hearts of Stone and 20 for Blood and Wine. I think their estimate for HoS was pretty accurate.

            In my case it was spot on...I think having a new area to explore with make the next one longer than 20 hours for me.

              I'd love to play an alternate witcher. Maybe someone from the cat school, like one of the cat school witchers you do meet in a side quest.

              Forgot his name, but would be an interesting character to play. a darker, more cynical and mercenary natured witcher.

                I'm not sure I'd enjoy a Witcher game as much without Geralt as the main character. He's just been such a staple to the series, and an awesome character with great presence. I've never been a huge fan of these types of fantasy RPGs but I think he is the reason I have enjoyed the Witcher games in spite of that. Also, I hated the portions of the game where I controlled Ciri. Just did not like her as a playable character. I think she felt too overpowered and "arcadey" and I always just wanted to hurry through and get back to Geralt.

                  I didn't mind playing as her, it broke it up a bit. I wouldn't mind the occasional section as another character either, but sure, Geralt needs to remain the main character.

                  Its definitely playable with a mouse, but I would expect the controls to be even more clunky.

                  This definitely plays better with gamepad, but tbh I just want to use KB/M in isometric view like Witcher 1

                    not when your gamepad skills are downright pitiful. There was a decent mod that improved the some of the keyboard controls, especially for sign casting.

                      IMO, the kb+mouse controls are preferable in TW 3 because of the better keybinds.


                      But it does not matter that much, the controls are unresponsive no matter which control method you prefer.

                        Did anyone play the console version? Nobody says much in the console forum about this game. It does seem like a great game to play on the couch in front of a big screen. It sure looked great on the PC. Plus, it was amazing how little load times there were. With my SSD and PC it loaded up almost instantly and you could ride a horse for 20 minutes and never see a loading screen. How did they do that? Was it the same on the console version?

                          I played the PS4 version a bit at a friends house and the framerate was terrible. I've heard that patches have improved it, but I can't confirm.

                            i purchased both the console and the pc version as my way of supporting this developer. the console version started off rough, but the patches have it sorted pretty well imo. looks really good on the ps4 imo.

                                  Yeh I've got both versions. I had it on PS4 first and you're right it's definitely better on the big screen, but frame rate is locked at 30 and the graphics look a lot better on PC. From memory PS4 loading times were not that good tbh, probably anywhere from 5x to 10x longer than the SSD in PC.

                                  Get yourself a long HDMI cable for your TV and DS4 or Xbone gamepad, then you can enjoy the best of both worlds

                                      I'd pay for a non-Geralt game set a few centuries in the future or somesuch.

                                        did you meet the cat school witcher? Would be kind of like playing Snake Plisken.

                                        Geralt is fantastic, but I absolutely love when expansions change the protagonist and then show same scenes from a diferent time/standpoint. the xwing/tie fighter, hl1/op for type of thing is great imo.

                                          I agree, but I really have to like the universe in which it takes place. I am not really a big fan of the Witcher world, or this type of fantasy all that much. My interest in the Witcher games has always been because of the Geralt of Rivia character being so well done.

                                                  Finally bought this one on the Steam sale, and wow (no pun intended :P) what a game ! Big world, great storytelling, fantastic graphics (everything maxed out even on my older card, smooth as a baby's ass).

                                                  Definitely the RPG game of the year.

                                                  I'd love to see a Witcher IV with cooperative multiplayer for like 8 or 16 players max. I'd run a server on one of my company's clusters and we'd play the hell out of it with my guild and friends.

                                                                              Geralt is fantastic, but I absolutely love when expansions change the protagonist and then show same scenes from a diferent time/standpoint. the xwing/tie fighter, hl1/op for type of thing is great imo.
                                                                              I agree, but I really have to like the universe in which it takes place. I am not really a big fan of the Witcher world, or this type of fantasy all that much. My interest in the Witcher games has always been because of the Geralt of Rivia character being so well done.
                                                                              Exactly my sentiment! Tho i suspect i am a bigger fan than meteor...Geralt's awesome execution aside the multi viewpoint expansions are undoubtedly a key factor in making this great. Totally agree!!
