The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, has confirmed multiplayer modes, quick-time events, and DRM are not part of the plan http://ning.it/10Endvm

I wonder how they're going to do brawls (if they're still in the game). Will they work like normal combat or will they revert back to The Witcher style where you are locked in a small area, strafing, free to attack and block on animation tells.

Hey, that sounds awesome! :D

Definitely like TW1's brawling over TW2's quick time brawling. Weird how they opted for QTEs in brawling when the actual combat was so amazingly well done. Love CD Projekt RED.

Its CD Projekt, I am unsuprised by their awesomness at this point :)

They kind of adressed the DRM thing immediately after witcher 2 was cracked, but it's nice to have it restated.

I was to preorder this game anyway.

Also, I don't think that brawling does qualify as QTE, where you are in a series of button prompts. QTE are those button prompts out of nowhere to let you make or fail some cinematic action scene.

Comment by Amrit Randay on April 26, 2013 at 6:38pm
I would argue that a series of buttons prompts is a QTE, but w/e. I hated them in the hunting in AC3, and I think I would have hated them in the combat in Witcher 3. Even though I haven't played 1 and 2, I'm glad 3 won't have QTEs in the combat.

Hands on from San Diego Comic-Con 2014

It's a truly odd year at the SDCC game wise(hence the non-gaming pic that was more exciting in all honesty). It truly is a vanilla year for games as bizarre choices and just an average effort of marketing is on display. From the recycled demo of Bayonetta 2 from the previous year to the complete absence…

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.

Back in in the summers in between…
