The Witcher 3 is one of this console generation’s best games. It might even be one of the best role-playing games ever made. Maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise then that Gwent, its side-quest distraction turned standalone card game, is every bit as detailed, complex, and beautifully crafted.
The open beta for Gwent, CD Projekt Red’s standalone version of The Witcher 3's card game, starts today for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

If you happen to run into Andrzej Sapkowski, creator of The Witcher, you might not want to bring up the video games. They haven’t made his life much better, in part because they’re not making him any money.

Like many others, Witcher 3 was my surprise game of the year. I’m close to replaying it for second time in about 140 hours. And I just love it, I could praise it on so many aspects.
And now for a ridiculous moment you can experience within the new Witcher 3 expansion, Hearts of Stone.
I’ve spent almost 100 hours in the Witcher 3, wandering the streets of Novigrad, galloping through Velen’s windswept woodland, sailing between the isles of Skellige. Yet in all that time, I never really stopped to enjoy the game’s quieter moments.
On today’s episode of Highlight Reel we have roundabout rockets, car dismounts, DOTA 2 bromances, horses doing push-ups, and much more!

Like Nathan, I played a good four or five hours of The Witcher 3 the other week, and like him, I’ve been oddly preoccupied by it ever since.
