    Tags: CD Projekt; The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    After years of hype and numerous delays, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the pride of the Polish nation, is finally released. It's now available for purchase on Steam, GOG and numerous other digital retailers (but definitely not GMG) for the standard price of $60. Here's the game's launch trailer, which has many familiar faces and a kinda faggy soundtrack:


    Well, that's that then. Ever since the Kickstarter age began, we've all but completely phased out news coverage of AAA RPG releases. Only The Witcher 3 remained, mostly because I enjoy CD Projekt's approach to writing...and because the Codex readership demands a little graphics whoring now and again. Now that it's released, I guess we can go full-time oldschool. Or at least until gameplay videos for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided or CDPR's own Cyberpunk 2077 start showing up...

    Or Fallout 4, or Elder Scrolls 5, or Obsidian's new traditionally published rpg, or any new rpgs from Bioware, or from Piranha Bytes, or from Larian, or other studios that may decide to suddenly develop an rpg for the first time.

    Don't act like there won't be news posts about these game or that we won't be talking about them.

    I agree with your post as a whole, but it's clear that one of us doesn't really understand what AAA means and I don't think it's me.

    Im eagerly waiting for the codex to tear this one apart. One upside to these AAA games is the lack of early access so most of the criticism will be fresh.
    God damn kickstarter titles are beaten to death before 1.0 leaving me with stale bloated threads.

    I've listened to the whole soundtrack and I think it's pretty good. Reminds me of Hans Zimmer's tracks for the "300" films.

    if your main quotes are from Gamespot, IGN US and Game Trailers along with 200 gazillion awards, it makes me think that the game is huge pile of shit, or those from marketing should be fired on the spot. (both?!)

    The trailer is very bad, really, really bad. The only good thing is that it shows scenes from the game and not a CGI shit, but the song which is mediocre at best, doesnt fit the cuts or better said, the cuts dont fit the song, also they shouldve used background sounds of the scenes, that could help it more.

    The color palette is shit, in 2013 was gritty and dark, here is World of Warcraft type, it doesnt look bad, but with a gritty/dark color, the atmosphere would be 10x better.

    As for the game, ill wait the EE edition and discount, CD Projeckt lost their minds years ago, i dont trust them at all, but i like their quests/dialogues and some of the dark scenes from the past games, so this shouldnt be bad, when their competition is LOL Bioware and some decent reiterations of the games from the past. But when you start acting like EA and Activision, it doesn't bring me any confidence, see sex bait trailers, 1 gazillion colors per pixel, ports for console, mediocre combat...
