With The Witcher 3 pre-order announced nearly a year before the game hits store shelves Crash Wiki takes a look at a few good reasons to buy, or not buy, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The 5 reason's give for Not buying the Witcher 3 just don't hold water IMO. 5) The game 'might' be buggy. Well that is true for any game, open world or not! Moreover, the conflict between Nvidia cards/AMD cards and drivers will be obsolete on consoles. 4) Feels Linear. What? I mean some of the best games out there are linear games. The fact that there is a Huuuge open world to explore as well just makes this even more exciting! 3) Complicated controls. Anyone who though the Witcher 2 controls were complicated is new to gaming, and hasn't played a vast number of RPG's, RTS's, flight sims, etc etc. 2) It's too big WTH?!? How much are you paying for your games? How much content do you think should come with said game? So they should make the game smaller, and with less content? SMH at the backward logic?! 1) Hype. Well because a game may be over hyped, can that really be a reason Not to buy the game. I mean really! The only real reason Not to buy the Witcher 3 is if you don't like huge open world RPG's. But really, who doesn't like huge open world RPG's? Or if you just don't have the time to play the game I guess.
You know the best part ? The author probably loved Skyrim wich is a worst "offender" in most of those aspects .
Amen to that hehe but is prolobly true...
The writer just needed 5 reasons for the article I guess. CDPR aren't known for shortchanging their games and having hindering bugs. The hype is warranted for this game. And to say The Witcher feels linear is silly.
I'd consider " not having played Witcher 1 & 2" as a reason to not buy it. I don't game on PC and never will, and if Xbox can get Witcher 2 PS4 should be able to get it too. I'm not going into a third game without playing the stuff before it.
Even if everyone tells you you can play it as a stand alone game ? Fine suit yourself , your loss
The only reason I wouldn't buy this is due to cost of money. I could better spend my $ on something else.
It was 20% off if you already owned TW and TW2, which I did, so my time value of money is well spent here, since I don't see myself getting a 25% APR investment anywhere else. And yes, I will be taking a day or two off when this game launches, as I did with D3 and DS2.
I've never played a Witcher game, so forgive me if this sounds stupid but, I dont understand how the game can be linear when theres a huge open world aspect to it. Am I missing something? From what I've read and seen in the trailer, I'm pretty excited for this game. The mounted combat looks awesome!
No you are not , the author is just being an idiot . Previous entry werent exactly open but vast and easy to be lost into , and involving decision and choices
Open world doesn't always mean non linear. I didn't play much of the Witcher 2 but from what i did the story and quest structure were very linear. Still a great a game though!
If you've played the previous games they are kinda like Dark Souls/Fable style open world. Which isn't bad, but not truly open world either. Part 3 promises to be open world in the truest sense though.
I'm a fan of the Witcher games in my opinion this article is mostly senseless nitpicking.
I can't think of a single reason not to purchase this game. Not a real one. And even this author had to stretch to find anything to list. The only valid one being that it might be buggy which seems to plague most open world games these days anyway. To date the Witcher games haven't been buggy. But they haven't been truly open world either.
To be perfectly fair the Witcher games have had their fair share of issues, not game breaking or anything, but the games are always supported after launch. No one should expect perfection from the start especially with a game as ambitious as this. Folks new to the series just need to know that CDPR will support the game after launch. CDPR is committed to their game and they've proven that from the start.
10% off for everyone, plus 5% each off for Witcher 1 and 2 - for 20% off total. I got both previous Witchers when they were on sale for 80 or 90% off. I plan on playing number 2 this week. Trailer sold me. Developed seems solid. Past history shows great things.
There are no reasons to pre order now other than to give them money. The game will still be available next February to pre order, so keep your money you have now for something else and don't give into the hype. It doesn't make you able to play the game any sooner.
I dont get why they released them like they did with so much focus on carrying over story The witcher - pc The witcher 2 - pc , xbox 360 The witcher 3 - pc , xbone , ps4 whats the point unless a remake is on the way? (p.s I own them both just curious as to why do this its like the wii u only having mass effect 3 or is it just me that thinks this?)
They still can each stand on their own , just like the books . Hell many started with the Witcher 2 and they are not lost . Not as if the tale pick up right from the very moment the previous game ends .
Yeah but I remember it being about the choices I made seems kind of pointless unless you have a pc so you can carry your story over to the next! All I am saying is this would be one "remaster" that would actually be a good idea.
Still people that didnt have the witcher 1 were asked a few things starting the second game . It's not like Mass Effect , wich couldnt even go through with interesting decision and anyway , and brushed everything aside but who's alive and if your "evil or good". Not against any re-release of any kind . Far from it .. but in this case , it's not a pressing issue
I never pre-order. Even in support of a company (CD Projekt) who I have full respect for. I know the game is going to be good. I have no doubt that CD Projekt will deliver yet again. At the end of the day though, you never know. It's really not that, however. It's the fact that the cash I would drop for the game would be better served supporting titles that are out now. Simple as that.
Already bought it cant wait to put my hand on it . I finished TW1/2 more than 5 times so yeah there is really no reason for me to not preoder the next game .
The only reason i find in NOT to buyin The Witcher 3 is if you´re not an Rpg gamer(entusiast)because this is by far the best Rpg franchise i´ve ever played in my life. To me CDPR are the best studio in the world in par with Naughty Dog,they make great games with alot of love for the art and with awesome feedback and respect for the consumer and that is trully rare this days...
