CD Projekt Red played down the fact it’s a sequel in order to attract new players. It's a tactic that's paid off.
I see it plain as day. |||
but before, the logo was like this http://images.gamersyde.com... They hide the 3 so that new comers don't feel afraid to jump in because they missed out on the previous titles (It's a sequel of course, but it's a stand alone title also)
Yeah, I personally do think they did a good job of introducing returning characters. The dialogue options combined with Dandilion's notes are pretty well done.
Yeah they didn't market it as the third game in a series but I wonder who cares about how they market their game lol You don't need to know the universe or the characters to enjoy it so I don't see a problem with their approach, I'm actually glad that they are successful with it.
I like the fact that the "3" was removed, especially since this is new-gem only. But yes it's an obvious "3"; also reminds me of Eredin's helmet.
I think they were aiming for it to look like his helmet being the king of the wild hunt and all.
Um. Who can't see the 3? What else does III mea... Ah! CLAW MARKS!!! :/
It's a clever tactic. Hard-core fans will see the III, whereas new players won't and will not feel intimidated.
I've never played a Witcher game but I can quite clearly see that III = 3 xD It being a sequel doesn't put me off wanting to play it eventually, the game looks great.
I don't think any gamer never heard of the witcher tho ...
I never heard of the series until witcher 3 was announced and got huge hype from my bandwagoning cousin lol.
Witcher 1 was pretty obscure, but Witcher 2 was pretty well known because it came out of nowhere and was so good. Witcher 3 got a ton of traction, especially since they spent $25 mill on advertising it.
It hasn't been The Witcher 3 for months...
I think it was a smart move as many console only gamers never played the first one and the second one wasnt a huge hit. I myself played the 2nd one on 360 and felt it was meh and was probably better on a PC. Im liking the Wild Hunt for sure. But for me ....I always hit a wall messing around with side quests and get bored. So what im doing is trying to stay the course with the main quest. So far so good!!
All the sidequests have unique stories. A lot are Ctually better than the main quest lol
I have done a few side quest to level up. I started one and realized that the monster I was going up against was 5 levels higher then me....stopped that right away!! I dont have much free time so if I start getting to much into side quests ill never finsih the story lol.
Off topic but is there supposed to be a Warner bros logo on the box art for the Witcher 3?
Never played W1 or W2, but I can clearly see the 3.
