    Dumbing down? Well Witcher series was decline from the start.
    I like it for what it is but it's basically decline.

    I just think that it's dishonest. You're screaming around: "lol crpg" , "be the cop you want to be" and then behind your back the decline starts creeping in.
    Aiming that high is pathetic.
    You could have just aimed a little lower and made an amazing game.
    But they dug too deep and ruined the game.

    Sandbox games tend to do very well in general. I wonder if that's one of the key elements of TW3's success? Other than that I would suspect quest design (each quest feeling unique not being MMO-inspired "bring me 4x of Y" shit) and the game overall being very cinematic-heavy (including its non-plot quests). Even I will admit that the above elements were well done and probably helped to sell the whole game, even though many other parts - including crucial gameplay elements - were mediocre at best, if not straight up weak.

    Disco failed at failing? That almost sounds like a praise, given that the game is very failure-driven.

    Lol Nah, I don't think that DEs premise was to fail.
    tbh i'm not really sure if it even has a premise.
    I don't know why it exists and i don't know why it exists the way it does.

    The immortal science of Mazovian socio-gamenomics is quite clear that only true comrades can top the RPG made by true comrades.

    This video made me really excited for what comes next actually, and I kind of want to replay the game now. Very intelligent sounding man (makes the private ideology they all seem to hold that much more puzzling), and I'm excited to see what they can do next.

    One thing I do think should be added upon in terms of the games systems is the thought cabinet. He says in the video that he's happy people aren't saying it's just a superfluous addition, but tbh, I didn't find it all that impactful. The thoughts were cool, but I didn't really feel the impact that they had on the game. They seemed too secondary, and I thought making a system where you spend skill points to unlock new thoughts was a bit counter intuitive. It's hard to justify spending a whole point for a random thought when I could directly improve my character by just increasing a skill. I think it'd be good to add dialogue that is thought cabinet dependent, and perhaps having an indicator that shows as much would be a positive addition.

    All that aside though, I would assume that making a sequel would be cheaper by a significant amount than making the original, considering the fact that, my suggestion aside, they have all the systems they need in place. It's now just a matter of art, writing, and voice acting, which shouldn't be too bad, right?

    You really should consider replayin' this game. This time, for a change, with your eyes open. It's obvious where and when thoughts from the cabinet give you new dialogue and gameplay options (spoiler: they do).

    I’m waitin’ for a suggested sequel/DLC in which you play a woman who speaks to her unborn child. Leftist murderers and satanists will literally kill themselves over implications.

    Somehow I doubt they’ll settle for “more of the same.”

    But yes now that they’ve got their pipelines in place it ought to be a lot faster to produce the assets.

    Hey come on, you described in your talk how much faster production had gotten as you figured things out. Robert's talk on how the Thought Cabinet turned into a quagmire feature was pretty informative too; now you have that and can "just" make a few tweaks you ought to be able to keep that under control too.

    I do hope Robert gets to write his sex scene. I want to know what Encyclopedia has to say about it.

    I can picture it now...

    PHYSICAL INSTRUMENTS [Legendary: Success] - Yeah, give her that rock hard dick! All five and a half inches of it!

    ENCYCLOPEDIA [Challenging: Failure] - Actually, the female vagina can't feel anything after three inches, so it really doesn't matter.

    PERCEPTION [Novice: Success] - Come on now, pick up the pace, she's clearly getting bored.

    VOLITION [Heroic: Failure] - Oh no, I'm losing her. I'm a failure, Measurehead was right! Stop now while you have some dignity left.

    EDIT: Or well, something along those lines.
