The Witcher: Wild Hunt (PC/XB1/PS4)
  • @epke and Dr Flibble I'd imagine if you really wanted it you could buy some codes and buy the American/EU version from their respective stores right? No idea if that's a good notion conversion wise though, and you can't trade it in if you don't like it.

    Can't wait for my copy to arrive. Ta' l-ittri ahjar jigi ghada! ('The postman better arrive tomorrow!' in my native language)
  • Because alcohol solves everything. Apparently.
  • I already thought of that Firly, but to do that would require buying a $50 and $20 PSN card, then with the exchange rate and the retailer's cut being considered, the final price of doing it that way is over $100. Granted I'd have $10 PSN store money left over but still, in that case I may as well just pay the $90 for a physical copy. I'll wait for that price drop.

    Also, here are some links for people who like me, never finished the previous 2 games (when you have a spare 8 hours).





    Oh, and Firly, Slán go fóill! :p One of the few phrases I remember from my days studying Celtic languages.
  • The game crashed on me last night trying to play some guy at Gwent and boom ps4 home screen.
  • @nutta27

    Your not the first person I've heard that from. Think it's a bug. One thing I will say, I've noticed quite a few graphical bugs, the most common being the sound freezing and the image keeps going, then pauses and waits for the sound to catch up.
  • There's this whole 'downgrade' conversation going on and while I don't think the game has been downgraded in any major way, CD Projekt Red are still addressing the issue. I love these devs. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-05-19-cd-projekt-red-tackles-the-witcher-3-graphics-downgrade-issue-head-on

  • Am I right in thinking pretty much all of you are playing on ps4?
  • I will be, hopefully by Monday. Stupid postman. I'd say most of us are, but maybe @Jerom is playing it on PC?
  • I played for a good 12 hours yesterday and did a single main quest. 1. If anyone knows and you should it's like the third actual quest. It was the one with the blonde witch with the boobs.

    Everything else was sidequests. Hunting the ?'s on the map and Gwent. I am all on on Gwent. I wish I could bet more than 10 coins though. I wanna go all out. Smash my whole pot in.
  • So how are people levelling their Geralt? I have put most points in quick attack, the sign that gives me a shield and the sight that gives me mind control. I have also picked up the extra 500 points of vitality.

    I'm level 12 at the minute just wandering around Novagrad.
  • I've put points into vitality, quick attack, igni and axii. It's not bad, I wish I could go back on some of my skills, maybe improve quen. The sun and stars skill appears to do nothing.
  • I'm only lvl 4, I've got the 500 extra health, Igni boost, faster health regen outside of combat and a mutagen to boost igni even more.

    Side quests really don't give a lot of exp in comparison to the main quest, but main quest stuff can get pretty difficult when there's a lot of enemies that are higher level than you. I'm also finding myself to be piss poor and spending most of my dosh on repairing, whilst finding armour and food by exploring. #TheStruggleIsReal
  • Money is easily solvable. Buy seashells (cost around 10), dismantle them (costs 1), then you get pearls (worth about 150), then sell the pearls. Rinse repeat. I've started carrying around pearls with me so if I'm buying anything I can sell a load of pearls and get my money back.

    I started pushing my skill points into quen now, and that is awesome. Got the active shield which absorbs blows to increase vitality. One more point and it won't use my stamina up so I can use it practically infinitely.
  • Ah, excellent tips. Thank you, I'll keep that in mind. :)

Howdy, Stranger!
