CD Projekt's Iwinski explains that The Witcher 3 will be more like the Batman Arkham series than Demon's /Dark Souls in terms of combat.
This game better be good for all the hyping the Devs are doing!
All you have to do is play the old games to know that it will be great. They are a very good developer with high standards.
Personally I'm not the biggest fan of TW1&2. I couldn't quite bring myself to finish them. Hopefully the improved combat and open world will sell me completely on the game.
Agreed. A Batman: Arkham style from these guys should be pretty epic. Here's hoping!
They said the same thing about Witcher 2's combat.
Oh that sounds sweet, I'm actually pumped for this one and I'm not even a RPG gamer... But this is looking so good, I can't wait.. It also Sounds like they are making a really good game so for people like me who don't normally get these type of games it's good to hear they are really working on making a smooth combat system. (love the fighting in batman) So this is a huge plus as I feel like getting the combat done right and making it fun to play is big in these kind of games .. (you nail that and it leads to gamers really enjoying the game - like Fallout 3) .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
Souls combat is the best.
I prefer Batman to be honest, but Souls is great as well
Batman's combat is all style and no substance compared to the souls games.
Sounds similar to the second game, then. I had no complaints, certainly. It was a lot harder than Batman, anyway. Until you had final level Quen, anyway, then you just armored up with Quen and laid waste to whatever decided to hassle you. EDIT: Read the interview, he says nothing like that. He says they certainly drew inspiration from AA, but didn't want to draw any comparisons to that because they'd be inaccurate. And the only mention of Souls was that many reviewers died in the prologue of the second game, and they do not wish to be a Souls game in terms of difficulty, but a challenging "hardcore" mode is there for those who want it. Bloody "journalists" twisting words for headlines again.
The guy who paraphrased this article got it all wrong. He said the combat is similar to arkham asylum and the difficulty isn't as hard as dark souls. No comparison whatsoever.
Which is exactly what I'm reading in the article: The Witcher 3 was inspired by Batman, while they don't want to be similar to Dark Souls.
No, the title says "The Witcher 3 is more like Batman Arkham Asylum than Demon's/Dark Souls, says Dev". They never said that. CD Projeckt Red never said that. These guys took two unrelated questions and jammed the answers together to suit their own narrative, and took them from someone else's interview at that. Paraphrasing at its finest, there is no uncertainty.
No. Paraphrasing at its finest would have been "New Witcher 3 combat system influenced by Arkham Asylum. Game won't be as hard as dark souls." That's how this should have been paraphrased.even though it's too long.
I was hoping it was more like both and best of all!
Good to know it is more action than RPG because I hate my RPGs that way. I really did not like that quote I read in the article looks like I will not be preordering and waiting for other peoples impressions
"The Witcher 3 Is More Like Batman: Arkham Asylum Than Demon's/Dark Souls, Says Dev" Thank God for that. I don't like Demon's/Dark Souls.
