    Which is exactly why people saying you should only play on the highest difficulty are fucking retarded.

    That being said, the choreography of the fights in cutscenes was pretty bad in many places, movements are slow and clumsy, it looks like something mocapped by some amateurs swinging sticks around, not people actually practicing sword fighting like they apparently hired.

    Finally got to it.
    After preordering the game and playing it for like 3-4 hours at release, remembered I had it.
    No work for 2 weeks so had some time to kill.

    45 hours of playtime so far, lv 22 and just finished Skellige main quest. Start working on Sunday so might finish it before that if I rush a bit.

    I figured out why 90% of people quit after Bloody Baron. Game is just too fucking big.
    Can focus a bit and derp through the White Orchard but scope of Velen/Novigrad hits like a truck. Its massive.

    Derped through alot of contracts and sidequests along with main mission and the amount of unexplored territory is still huge and they tease you with a hundred questionmarks still unexplored.

    Biggest negative I have for the game is the rpg/leveling system. Could've come up with a smarter way cause most of the side content is really well done, just a sigh of dissapointment when you invest an hour solving someones problem and you get 20 orens and 7xp.
    While taking a boat to Skellige and talking with Yen nets you 2 levels.

    Also monster contracts should have been way harder no matter your or monsters level. Like nigga, you need to prepare for this shit. Biggest challenge I had was that first werewolf and mostly it was difficult cause I was underleveled.
    Just a shame with all the effort put into them you head right in and whack the ugly fucker few times like its a regular peasant.

    Dont have much to complain besides that and its size. Its a massive time investment but a well made one.

    Also props to some of you fuckers itt that hated it and played through it twice like there are no other games on this planet. Still not Skyway level, but derping 200+ hours on something you dont enjoy deserves a medal.

    Now you know why mods like TW3:EE are so popular. The base game’s rpg systems are completely broken by differing design philosophies implemented in the same system, and usually poorly implemented at that.

    Lol @ the absolute delusion of the fanboys in the replies saying CDPR is a "good guys" company and that they're "independent".

    Looking forward to seeing the mental gymnastics these people will go to defend them when CP2077 mp is flooded with MTX, and then the cope for when the next game has MP from the start.

    A game having microtransactions and multiplayer doesn not mean that the game is bad by default. It's about how you implement them. You really have to stop thinking in black and white. Who cares if you can buy skins in CP77, if the gameplay is great, if they will produce big expansion packs, if it will have great writing and missions.

    I never said the game would be bad because of MTX (even if MTX are absolute cancer). I said that the narrative of "CDPR are the good guys" has no basis in anything real anymore.

    Come on... CDPR did nothing which was anti consumer when it comes to their games or GOG. The worst you can say is that their curation on GOG can be questionable sometimes.

    Hahahah sucker is born every minute. They sold scene releases on GOG, had DRM on Witcher 2, were sending cease and desist letters to abandonware sites and alleged pirates in Germany to pay them.

    Cosmetic only microtransactions don't bother me at all personally, but most of the arguments against them are about their addictive nature for certain people rather than about ruining the gameplay.

    With the exception of Witcher 2 DRM (which I don't really remember to be honest), the others have nothing to do with being anti-consumer, they tried to defend their business. Oh, and there is no such thing as abandonware if a company has the rights to a software. They can shut down abandonware and they are in the right.
    You can call me a sucker, but their games and their practices with consumers are commendable and they deserve the good will they get.

    I mean it's really baffling where this good will is coming from. When their whole shtick is "we don't care about drm and piracy", but then put drm and act on the level of ubisoft about piracy, it hurts my head how people can think they are somehow pro-consumer. They had a fucking SecuROM in Witcher 2. :lol:

    And then they had no drm in Witcher 3. From what I remember they were almost bankrupt when they released Witcher 2 maybe that had something to do with it.
    :hmmm:

    And that has little to do with the point TheSentinel was making and I was agreeing with, that is delusional CDPR are somehow viewed as "the good guys", when they are capable and did all the scummy stuff companies like Ubisoft, EA and Activision get shit for.

    You won't truly appreciate it until you play the game in first person and run into walls.

    The replies on this video are insane. The textures look a bit better, yes, but you probably won't even notice them while playing normally. Some of them look near identical(e.g., the wood at 0:45)

    Who the fuck even gives a shit about any of that shit anyway?

    This is like watching someone build a house out of shit, paint over it nicely, then re-do the paintjob.
