Yes, I never played the Enhanced Edition of Witcher 1, only the release version

By the way, from what I've experienced, Enhanced version only changed 2(two) of those "generic model" NPCs to... recolors of them :lol: Carmen and someone else.

CDPR has never been know for quality of their product when it releases. Seems no one played Witcher 1 on release. And I don't mean Witcher 1 : Enhanced Edition. Vanilla Witcher 1 was borderline unplayable, combat was broken, quests were broken and even all the patches it got still didn't fix it. Enhanced Edition is how it should have launched. Cyberpunk 2077 is just CDPR simply just reminding us that they don't give a shit about the quality of their products.
I played it on release and the only issue I remember is long loading times.

Yes there were others, but comparing this to CP2077? Are you out of your mind? They were developing Witcher longer than CP and it was a 50 hours RPG.

Witcher 2 is what you should be comparing CP to. It's a much small game though, was easier to fix and it only came out on PC first. So there wasn't much butthurt about the fact that they were selling an alpha version and Enhanced Edition was in fact the release version of the game. Although idiots were praising this as free content. By this logic every dev that manages to pull his game out of Early Access is a messiah.

Just for comparison, Witcher 1 had an intro cinematic on release and Witcher 2 got one only after Enhanced Edition.

Yeah, I played Twitcher 1 on release as well, and the only problem I remember was ridiculous loading times when leaving a house. :argh:

Twitcher 2 had no problems as well, buuuut, I played it on so ultra low, that I thought for 1 year the blonde girl was full of bruises. When those were actually tatoos. Very blurry tatoos. Sad.
Now remembering CP77, maybe having a crying toaster prevented me from fancy graphic induced crashes. :hahano:

Only had a toaster able to run TW3 when it was already überpatched, so it doesn't count.

Didn't the EE rerecord several dialog lines completely different? I remember that one guard, who was originally... "with speshul needs". Creating the dilemma if someone like him can be guilty of murder or smth. The EE removed that. Aaaand IIRC Geralt got some love as well, making him less... grumpy.
"Enhanced" Edishun my ass.

Despite loving both Witcher 1 and 3 (especially DLCs for the latter), Witcher 2 is easily one of the most annoying and frustrating games I played, gameplay/mechanics wise.

If anyone cares, I explained that: here

Since it looks like you played CP77, as of now I'll say it's a MUST to replay TW3 with "Enhanced Edition" mod. It's brutal, it will make you ragequit 3x more than any Dark Souls ever could, but fuck, isn't that one of the greatest gaming experiences ever made.

Oh yeah that's true, EE of 1 was focused mainly on dialogues in English and its weird translations. Since I'm the Potato target market, nothing was changed, but I understand that OG version in EN was weird. Maybe not "Pathologic" weird, but...

I played it on day 1 in 2007 and don't remember anything, though maybe 3 patches were downloaded in the background during those hours of loading screens lmao. I replayed it recently, like W2 and halfway through 3 now with Enhanced Edition, but installed a mod "FCR" and THAT is unplayable, oh dear.

I just have luck I guess. CP2077 was fine, just microissues minor bugs that every big release has nowadays. Day 1 New Vegas was also stellar, "obsidian buggy lmao" buzzword was cringy for me back then in 2010.

Ok, RDR2 on day 1 PC could not start at all, but so it could not for 99% of customers :lol:
Yes, I never played the Enhanced Edition of Witcher 1, only the release version, and I don't remember any serious issues. Finished that game without problems and liked it, boring swamp aside. What I remember is that the town had like the same six NPC's walking around. There you had finally a town in a game that actually looked like a real European old town, and then the cut corners somewhat diminished that impression. Plus, it was just a facade. Reminds me of something.
But yeah, "borderline unplayable" is hyperbole. And yes, I'm someone who had hardly any technical issues with Cyberpunk 2077, either. My issues here are on the AI or design side.
Witcher 1 was a disaster for many, I had the game constantly crashing when auto saving. Can't remember the npc's name, but the npc didn't appear for a main story quest, which forced me to start over, having a quest item but the game not registering that I have the item. But CDPR fanboys ofcourse see no fault with any of their games whatsoever. Graphics glitches etc, etc. Still powered through the issues and I still think it's CDPR's best game. But I do feel that other devs get too much of a free pass when it comes to bugs. Obsidian comes to mind
Eh, yes, you have to be a "CDPR fanboy" if you didn't experience any issues with the game. That must be it. Look, I don't doubt you had those bugs, but I didn't. I have no reason whatsoever to diss that game because of bugs. And it's similar with Cyberpunk 2077. Call it luck or whatever, but not everyone who doesn't have your shitty experience is blind to issues. If there are no issues of this kind for me, there's simply nothing to see.

And regarding this game here, I listed all my more relevant bugs in a post somewhere. One almost broke a quest, but could be bypassed with the quest finishing, and the other one was a quest item that was stuck in my inventory.

On a side note, while it's certainly a quest design masterpiece, like Beyond the Beef, I'd like to see a person who could break/not pass successfully Vizima Confidential because it's so easy and obvious. And look them in the eyes :hmmm:

Yean, I never got very far with Witcher 2. I just can't get into it.

Anyway remember that random reddit "leak" from "game developer"

"Our original Johnny was heavily inspired by David Hayter's Solid Snake from the first MGS and believe it or not "

Could there be some truth to that?
Reminds me off that "You're a white male!!!" guy
AIDs Skrillex is his name, and it suits OG Johnny just as well.

Nah, this immediately came to mind:

carry on........

I wonder if he's got some sort of stimulating neural chip that gives him immense pleasure when he kills things...? Because getting rid of his weiner seems very extreme even for cyberpsychosis, so its absence would have to be compensated for somehow.

Yeah the EE came with a retranslation and re-recorded some dialogue.



White Rayla's original VO was pretty terrible. Sounded like a bulldyke who was also a mongoloid.

I think the worst part of Vizima Confidential is that you can correctly resolve it entirely by accident.

In the lore for some reason Saburo's daughter got it on with Adam one time on a party binge. Which is weird cause she was theoretically the least psycho Saburo and Adam is Adam.

Does Michiko look like a cut of fuckable meat?

While she slept no less! And in the end it didn't work and she spawns a SAM and shoots it down. Why not just start with that? :hahano:

it's like every thread that overstays its welcome. Eventually it just jumps the shark. you see like 10 new pages, open the thread, and it's just 2 people arguing over which Witcher game had the best hats

Considering how awful the launch supposedly went for CDPR, I'd expect more communication from them regarding what they're going to do. A lot more. But we heard nothing relevant from them so far.

Someone said they might be saying little because of the lawsuits so the less they say the better or something, don't know if its true or if its just coping.

Not sure what they can say as well, probably everything they'll say would probably be made fun of, for good reason as well, especially if its from the 4 dudes who kept boasting about the features before launch during the deep dives or whatever.

lawsuits can take years though, if they only talk about cyberpunk once the lawsuits are done nobody might be interested in cyberpunk 2077 anymore by that time

Indeed... by now most people already moved on or are waiting 1..2 years for a 'definitive' edition before playing it. Whatever they (don't) say now can only infuriate whatever fans they've left that are still actively following their game.

Some shops are already discounting the boxed PC version to 29.99 The way they handled launch, post launch and communication effectively killed the tail sales of this game. GTA5 and Skyrim continued to sell well for years keeping they brand value and recognition high.

I do hope for CDPR that all those day one sales were enough to cover the costs and then have some cash for their retirement funds, because they won't be making more money anytime soon.

Without knowing the absolute numbers it's not possible to say it's selling well. It's right in front of a 3 yrs old game and the first one is a indie. Also, January is a period of weak sales.
