GSY Live: Replay The Witcher 3 PC

GSY Live: Replay The Witcher 3 PC

While everyone was either playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or the third episode of Life is Strange, we felt pretty lonely livestreaming CD Projekt's latest game. Sadly, the English part didn't have all the action of the French stream, so it may have been a little boring for those who didn't want to watch a 20 minute long cutscene. Thankfully, the reward at the very end was the discovery of a new part of the world and it was quite worth it we must say.

So glad I didn't preorder this one like I did Witcher 2. Witcher 3 the wild downgrade is worth $20 at best. I'll wait for a sale.

@Koenshaku - It's not a downgrade if it's never been graded before! It's like me flunking the 12th grade, when I already dropped out of school during the 10th grade. Some things are impossible. Think about it son....think about it.

I really wish people would get over the whole downgrade thing. I'm having a blast right now, trying to do every single thing in the game.

Graphics fetishists... 20 bucks ? Don't make me laugh. I hope it stays at 60 bucks like 3 years just so you're missing out on one of the greatest RPG's of all time for 3 years. Get over the downgrade already and play it ! You'll see that it's amazingly well done and deserves the price.

Yes, there is a difference from the original reveal gameplay trailer. But once you start playing the game and getting immerse, you forget about all that. Game still looks fantastic, and is freaking awesome game in itself. GWENT!

Wild Downgrade... You people are boring as hell. Enjoy the fucking games and stop complaining because a wolf had super realistic hair/fur, and actually not. The game is freaking awesome anyway, graphics and inmersion.

So some slight graphical optimizations in a game that is still an absolute beast visually makes you deem it worth a third of it's full price, well that is one way of justifying being a cheapass.

Have fun not playing the best rpg in MANY years i guess.

Where's the obligatory "Console peasants are to blame! Stone them to death!"-posts I wonder... Oh yea, most of them whiners are preoccupied playing the game right now, i forgot.

Pretty sure there'll be an "enhanced edition" patch somewhere along the way to appease the GPU strokers, but honestly, the game is happy good fun. I would say though...I feel like the new meditate for reagents system, while nice, does take some of the previous difficulty out of the game.

Thanks for the videos.

By the sounds of the patch it wont really change the game all that much so it looks as good as original footage lol adding more blades of grass etc is not the problem and the draw distance isn't either, for me there are way too many bad textures, they do stop you noticing a lot by having objects disappear before your camera goes close to them, they would need to sort the textures out and glitches that ive had.

The game is good but playing it maxed out and everything on ultra its not exactly WOW even using DSR and playing it with 4k chosen does not even improve textures or anything.

I just think they all should stop bulling gamers and showing what I call fake footage making out that is what the game will be like when they know 100% it wont be, this is a big reason why preorders of games have dropped massively in the UK because people are sick of it.

If I had not got the game free with my graphics card then its something I would have got preowned, its a ok game but not something I would have bought full price.

my horse keeps walking 10ft above my character too which drives me made because I have to restart the game for it to sort out.

Anyone figure out how to disable the floating names and damage text from over everything? I'm a big immersion guy, and this is my biggest pet peeve right now. I can't believe they went to all the trouble of making everything in the hud re-sizable and tweak-able, but don't allow you to get rid of these horrible immersion breaking pop ups (I think we all know by now that you click "x" to talk to someone - even though most people will just snort at you...

Every time I'm walking through a beautiful forest and a bright red popup shows up telling me there is a hare close by it takes me out the moment. Every time I get into an epic battle and score a blow and a giant -14 points subtracted from enemies health pops up over his head it takes me out of the moment. Loving the game other than this, but this crap has got to go!

Are you guys planning on getting a hold of a lossless version of the launch trailer?

Wanted to post this here as well, i posted in the previous Witcher 3 PC thread, but wanted to make sure as many people here saw it as possible.

reports are flowing in in regards to the gtx 960 outperforming the 770 4gb, and SLI 960s matching 780Ti's in SLI as well.

Apparently the entire world is tessellated, as well as water, and the 9xx series architecture handles tessellation more effeciently. Still sounds like bullshit, but thats the speculation--that and this one:

Hairworks starts at default setting of 8xMSAA when enabled. In the install directory, you can modify the .ini file, and find the string of text that entails the hairworks MSAA setting. you can change it from 8, to 4, 2, or 0. I would recommend setting it to 2, or 0, especially if you run the game with full scene AA already.

This is why many cutscenes are tanking in performance. Every rendered strand of hair 8x multi-sampled? Who the fucks idea was it to have that the default setting?

Anyhow, hope this helps you guys get some FPS. Try adjusting that in the .ini, and try messing with the tessellation option as well. This will benefit Kepler users, but should benefit everyone all around also.

Personally, I don't give a shit about whether or not my character's hair is "flowing with efficiency". I only care about the game play.

I really hate how he has an american accent. Doesn't make sense.. and how women look like they just came out of the salon. Did they have curling irons and shit back then?

I said the exact same thing trying to watch the first episode of Game of Thrones, before turning it off.

They should really be using pre-great vowel shift pronunciation.

The romans had. It's called calamistrum. Don't know why there shouldn't be something like that in a magical fantasy world...

First of all, what's the problem with American accent? The modern British accents are just as, well, modern as their American counterparts. Geralt is supposed to sound foreign to most Northerners, specifically Rivian, a region never visited in the games.

Secondly, hair styling has existed through the entire human history. Did you imagine that fashion is a new thing? Yes, they did in fact have curling irons and shit, or rather their technologically primitive counterparts.
