Developer reckons that finishing The Witcher 3 in 100 hours equals to a speedrun. Also, it looks like Geralt is now able to bargain for his rewards!

100 hours for a speedrun seems hefty.

There's a good thing and a bad thing to grasp here.

An rpg taking long to complete while it's great if there's plenty of content but it can be annoying when a game feels like it will never end lol. Some stories don't need to be dragged out.

I couldn't get into Witcher 2 something about the combat. Witcher 3 looks great tho an ill play it on the ps4 instead of my PC this time. Again cause of the combat doesn't suit mouse an keyboard.

I'm looking forward to dragon age tho that will be a PC purchase for me. That an Destiny for my Ps4.

SilentNegotiator1410d ago

Unless they developed the game for over 5 years, it's doubtful that they created over 100 hours of unique content. And since my understanding is that they made the map beyond gigantic, my concern is that the length comes from a large part in the really long travel.

1)i find that extremely hard to believe.
2)amazing if its true
3)sadly ill prolly never complete it

A good example of a too long bad game: Ride To Hell Retribution... *shrugs*

If you don't have a joystick to play on your PC, I doubt you are a PC gamer.

Witcher 2 was amazing , graphics were a benchmark for awhile and still look better then some of the newer launched games and still tax top of the lines systems with uber sampling turned on. My only complaint was the controls felt clunky with both KB+M and the 360 controller, I really hope they streamline the controls more with Witcher 3 to make it feel less clunky!

@Spinal why in the word would you get Witcher 3 on PS4 and Dragon Age on PC !? You got that backwards , should get Witcher 3 for PC because it will be a benchmark for graphics and be much more immersive and will have controller support on PC for both the 360 and XBO controller! Dragon Age I'm prolly picking up for PS4 as there won't be much difference between PS4 and PC version .

anticlimax1410d ago

If you're a tactical isometric man, like myself, playing Dragon Age without KB + M just doesn't make sense.

I believe this guy didn't took into consideration how real world works. People tend to treat game as completed once they went through the path of least resistance.

Mucho contento bueno magnifico, nonetheless.

The PS4 supports keyboard + mouse, play it however is good for you though, I just wanted to throw that out there in case people didn't know :)

I heard them say it would take 15 minutes on horseback galloping to even reach the next part of one quest from A to B. They fast traveled instead since they had to show what they wanted.

SilentNegotiator1410d ago

Is fast travel available in the actual game, though?

AgentSmithPS41410d ago

"There's also a fast-travel option to-and-fro from known locations." says eurogamer

SilentNegotiator1410d ago (Edited 1410d ago )

Oh well that's promising. I was worried that they were counting constant back and forth traveling. But then again, now my concern has shifted more towards repetition. Will it stay fresh for 100 hours?

ArchangelMike1410d ago

I guess that's one of the Trophies we'll get to unlock... "Speed Run Trophy - complete the game in less than 100 hours"

Magicite1410d ago

For a JRPG fan this is a melody to my ears.
Of course if this does not mean grinding for 50% of time.

TheTwelve1410d ago

I will lose myself in this game.

I haven't wanted to fast-forward time in so long.

Witcher 3, come quickly!

KinjoTakemura1410d ago (Edited 1410d ago )

Who wants to pay $60 for a game that's only 10 hours long? Come on. These types of games aren't meant for one or two days of gameplay. They are supposed to small novels, epics, sagas. A game that will make you say to yourself, "Damn that was good." Child Of Light is pretty, but there isn't much else. I want a game that I can enjoy and replay to explore areas that I missed on the first play through. Paying 60 bucks for a game that's 8 to 16 hours and only worth playing once hardly justifies my purchase. Who ever came up with the idea that gamers want shorter games is an idiot.

Crazay1410d ago (Edited 1410d ago )

I simply LOVE the idea that a game could be so big that 100hrs is a speed run but I can't see that being completely truthful unless he means getting all achievement/trophies and doing every single mission. I mean even Skyrim which was absolutely gigantic could be done in way less time.

the more time passes, the more the wait is intolerable.

Alexious1410d ago

Perhaps you can go and live in Poland, what do you think? Maybe you can even sneak in their offices by night and play some!

XiSasukeUchiha1410d ago

Damn I'm hyping for this game:)

shammgod1410d ago (Edited 1410d ago )

If thats true this game will take me a year to finish.

Which is not a bad thing...

I usually don't have a ton of time to game, so 100 hours to me is like 300 to 400

bumnut1410d ago

I guess you have kids too then :)

raWfodog1410d ago

Exactly! Between my wife, kids, and work, games that take 40 game hours to complete mean that I will be playing it for over 6 months. If this game indeed takes over 100 game hours to complete, I will be playing it for years to come :)

Alexious1410d ago

It certainly will save you money in your wallet...

ArchangelMike1410d ago

LoL Same here. A 100 hour game for me is like... man I'll still be playing this game 4 months after...

RosweeSon1410d ago

Ah what's 4 days non stop ;(
