As we’ve established repeatedly over 2016, Maul is the King of Witcher cosplay. We normally only see him as Geralt, though; here’s a look at how he becomes Geralt.
My Gwent awakening has taken place entirely within the last couple of months. In that time I went from never playing, to becoming mildly obsessed with the Witcher 3 minigame version, to playing and enjoying the beta of the standalone game. It’s been a lot to digest.
Come on guys. Nobody that handsome would be called “Gerald”.
The Witcher 3 is an astounding RPG full of countless quests. It ranges from sweeping epic battles to smaller, more intimate tales. I started playing the “Hearts of Stone” DLC recently and experienced a quest so wonderful, I had to take a deeper dive.
Hey, I know that guy!
I’ve always thought of Geralt of Rivia as a big ol’ cat. I know they call him The White Wolf, but come on: the guy is a cat. So it’s been bumming me out that after a recent patch to the game, all the cats in the Northern Realms seem to hate the guy even more than they already did.
Up 1-0 with a fully stacked hand. Feels good, man. I’m finally getting into Gwent and, to no one’s surprise, I really like it. I do wish my AI opponents were more clever, however. If you play Gwent in The Witcher 3, what kind of deck do you play and where can I find an opponent who’ll actually put up a fight?
As we’ve established, many on our staff adore The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We’ve written tons of articles about the game, and several of us have played it all the way through more than once. Our EIC Stephen Totilo, however, is still only a little ways into his first playthrough.
You can stand on the bridge. I believe in you!
Today, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gets a Game of the Year edition. It comes with all the updates, patches, DLC and expansions released over the last year. It’s also the rare “Game of the Year” edition that is appropriately named.
The Witcher 3 Game of the Year edition releases tomorrow and the base game is getting a big patch in preparation. Detailed patch notes show a great many fixes coming to version 1.30. Tweaked item drops, an end to game altering glitches, and a host of quest fixes are highlights.
Czech cosplayer Alzbeta Trojanova might have Ciri’s hair, but she’s got Geralt’s steel.
The Witcher 3 is the latest game to see Nvidia’s fancy new Ansel screenshot technology implemented. Which means users can now not only take very high resolution screens, but panoramic 360-degree shots of their gameplay as well.
This is Vitalina Batsarashkina, a 19 year-old Russian shooter—and big fan of The Witcher, it seems—who won a silver medal at the Olympics earlier this week in the 10m Air Pistol.
Forget workarounds using a horse, here’s a proper mod that lets you play The Witcher 3 (well, most of it, at least) in first-person.
Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of GOG and development studio CD Projekt Red, has some curious thoughts on how to handle a very thorny subject: piracy.
Elena Samko, specialist in gross creature cosplay (who we’ve featured a few times before), has done a ton of Witcher 3 stuff recently, dressing up as all kinds of monsters and enemies from the game.
It’s a tough call... I’m not sure what I should do here... gonna have to put this one to a vote.
Blood and Wine, the latest (and final) DLC pack for The Witcher 3, has an easter egg that I am frankly shocked anyone found at all. The secret is remarkably well-hidden, and not accessible through normal means.
