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.

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.

Identifying with games and game characters

This is actually just a copy-paste of my most recent comment on this weeks Axe Factor. I've long intended this as a blog post, which is why it appears here as well.

I haven't heard the podcast yet, but I felt like writing a response to the question to this weeks poll, "Have you ever had a "That's Me!" experience with a video game character?"

The answer is yes. One of the most powerful gaming experiences for me the last couple of years have been To The…
