Awesome can't wait for your videos. May I ask, when a publisher sends you the trailer, what do you use to convert it to .mp4, especially the 60fps ones?

We use our own automated system based on avisynth/ffmpeg.

This game is so much easier to play with a mouse and a keyboard.

It is, after all, a PC born game.

Most games with first person or over-the-shoulder cameras are going to be easier with mouse aim.. maybe even those not original born or intended for PC.

How is the performance?

Performance is great and very scalable. My personal opinion is that it doesn't look that much better than then ps3 version. Ok, resolution is higher and the reflective surfaces and shadows are way better. But it's definately not as much a difference as BF3 on consoles and pc. And there is mouse acceleration which i hate and can't be turned off. Also mouse movement slows down very much during bullet time. I can't remember that from the first game.

Someone will probably figure out how to turn off acceleration. Smoothing and acceleration are stupid. I don't know why everyone insists on messing with the mouse.

Thanks for the impressions.

Nice. After GTA4 I was a little concerned about the framerate. My PC can push GTA near 60, but it can't hold it with everything pushed up.. and this is the sort of game that I'd like to play at that clip.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @Sdarts: Cool.. what language did you read them in? (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: From someone who read and even listened to all The Witcher books before playing the games. The books are on par with The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Harry Potter books imho. (4 Hours ago)
