I beat Witcher 2. I hope Witcher 3 can live up to the hype because I am not that impressed with the first two. Interesting but SO flawed.

Sorry, but after having everyone tell me how amazing this game is for the past years I came away pretty disappointed. There were far too many times where I was forced to follow the wiki step-by-step to understand what had happened, where to go next, and what to do. It didn't help that it took me until Chapter 3 to find out my game was not patched and up to date, so I encountered a good number of frustrating glitches along the way.

Many of the good points were countered by big flaws. For example, the graphics are wonderful, but the animations are laughable. The combat is quick and exciting, but the hit detection and level layout is frustrating. The plot is interesting, but the dialogue is incomprehensible at times.

I enjoyed the games, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered finishing them, but I really have a lot of complaints. If Witcher 3 can really fix all these problems, that would be amazing.

Those are legit reasons I suppose. I didn't have any trouble following conversations or had any bugs at all. Never used wiki, that is absolutely last resort. I used GOG version for both TW1 and TW2. Animations at times are a little stiff sure, especially sexy time scenes. Hit detection was fine for the most part on my end.

I'm sorry to hear you had glitches and bugs. Can't actually remember having any.

Really good game otherwise, I prefered TW1 when it comes to story though.. Might be because TW2s content was split in twain? Also how wasn't your game up to date? I thought it auto updated via the launcher?

Comment by Ian - Alexander Arts on July 11, 2014 at 10:25pm
I guess because you used the GOG version. Apparently on Steam it doesn't update the patches, I had to DL them from the site, I got 3.3 and then it auto updated to 3.4 from the launcher, weird. Having fewer glitches would have probably improved my experience a lot.
Comment by Berserkaren on July 12, 2014 at 3:02am

Agreed.. The fewer bugs and glitches there are the better ones gaming experience becomes. Still Enhanced Edition should already be at v3.3 and only needed the v3.4 patch to auto update. Strange..

will the crowdfunding bubble burst

I am still a big user of crowdfunding sites i have donated to a fair few games so far. From skull girls and grim dawn up to the more recent beasts fury. 

I think crowd funding has its place and thankfully i have not been burned as of yet but recently came across a kickstarter …

Who gets gaming shame....?

Gaming Shame :  

1) The shame a person feels when they just screwed up and their team has died and lost the match because of it.

2) The shame a person feels when they play a video game, but feel that they should be doing something that would be more productive.

I dont know about you guys, but I run into this more often than not, and its why I dont game as much as I used to.
