CD Projekt's RPG The Witcher Enhanced Edition Director's Cut has received a permanent price reduction.
now everybody can buy this game and see how great it really is.
I've just started playing it again, when I bought it I had quite a lot of games to play and I didn't give it much of a chance. I don't know why I didn't because it's an excellent game, really enjoying it.
get the mods from moddb mate, becomes a different game.
Currently playing this game with the Hi res mod. The game looks better then any rpg out there. The story is just epic, among the best RPG's out there and if anyone has missed it they should pick up a copy asap.
Yeah the story is real epic way better then Dragons Age. I love how the choices you make in game are. I know i reloaded a lot of save files. Edit. I think im going to install The Witcher again just for the hi res textures.
The hi res textures give the game competely new looks. I havent seen an rpg look this good. Tried playing it in Eyefinity mode, though the cutscenes wont load properly (the game play looks epic in Eyefinity though as if you are within the world). However since the cutscenes wont work stuck playing it on 1 monitor. Hope there is a patch out for eyefinity on this game. Oh well the next witcher is confirmed to support eyefinity cant wait for it. The mod reminds me why i am exclusively a PC gamer.
This is true, the game looks great with that mod. Lol your last comment,"The mod reminds me why i am exclusively a PC gamer" reminded me of myself a couple years ago. I was strictly a pc gamer because of free mods and better graphics on pc (and cheaper games too!) However, I bought a ps3 and I feel happy with it. While pc games are miles ahead of ps3 in hi-res textures and resolutions (and arguably AA too), I found that ps3 exclusives have better lighting, animations, and polish/optimization. I think there are plenty of games out there to support my observation! But, I just started playing games in dx11 and wow, the future of pc gaming is exciting (and expensive lol)!
I agree with the rest of your statement.. Expensive depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to go extreme then yes it can be. Is it required to max out all games... NO. Till date 8800gtx plays games in 1080p, better then any console can and thats 3yr old hardware now and as you rightfully mentiond games are cheaper on PC. My PC is an extreme setup(you can check the specs on my profile) however compared to buying games on consoles i must have saved more then 1300usd in the last 2yrs alone (enough to build an awesome rig which will an entire generation beating consoles game for game). Hence PC gaming expensive i dont think so, the cost of games alone makes consoles more costly. Finally yea i agree PS3 has some good exclusives, however personally when i look at the PS3 lineup the only game that really interests me would be uncharted thats it, again this is just my opinion to each is their own. Multiplats are the majority of games played, which is where PC beats every other system and PC does have the most exclusives BTW.
The Witcher was pretty good. I wasn't a fan of the interface in general, though. And the combat could've been better... but, overall a good game. I also bought the Enhanced Edition which came with a strategy guide--some parts would've been impossible with out it!! I am looking forward to The Witcher 2, as I hope they polish it up more!
