Video games like The Witcher 3 are enormous, complicated pieces of machinery with thousands upon thousands of moving parts. Make one mistake and you can break everything—or, as one developer discovered, you can accidentally unlock every door in the game.
Saint Seiya is being turned into a live-action flick. Toei Animation is teaming up with Chinese film company A Really Good Film for the English language picture, which will be helmed by Tomasz Bagiński of Witcher game intro fame.
The Witcher series is being turned into an English language Netflix drama by CG visual effects company Platige Image S.A.
There are a lot of terrible sex scenes in mainstream games. There are also a handful of good ones, as seen in games like The Witcher 3. But even in that game’s case, creating believable sex scenes wasn’t easy. Video game technology is great if you want characters to make war; not so much if you want them to make love.
Last year, I cheated in a relationship that was honestly the best I’ve ever had. This is a pattern in my life, a problem that, for a long time, I refused to acknowledge. It’s even extended to video games like The Witcher 3.
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.
