Definitely not.
The plot of the Witcher games has always been pretty disjointed, and Geralt is such a simple and straightforward character, it's enough to know what part 3 will tell you - apparently that's quite a lot, so you should be set.

on second thought... my comuter is getting kinda dated with everything (think i have a triple core or so :S It's about enough for gta.

I will probably avoid this one. It looks like Warlords of Draenor.

Performance problems might arise for many people, also a staple of the Witcher series.

I also think that the world itself is appealing and rich, I just wish the characters and stories in it were as compelling as the setting they're placed in and had more depth to them.

The Witcher series often fellates its own "mature" theme to the point that every other plot point needs to be bloody, sexualized or morally ambivalent, until it becomes meaningless. That's why I got really bored in part 2, because it just felt like an endless strain of annoyed, disgusting or horny characters, one after the other.

So i'm watching the first part of Jesse's let's play of the Witcher 3, you know, i DO own the first one, it just pissed me off with it's controls, thought if 3 interests me i'll go ahead and play 1 and 2 and get 3, cause i'm a sucker for open world games.
First impressions: Either Geralt's voice actor or the VA director is horrible and Oh Hai Elli from The Last Of Us, didn't expect your character model here.

Might just be the perfect time to do something i've never done before: let roose and play a total asshole, like that one time i tried to go full Renegade and ended up somewhere in the middle.

Do you have it for PC?

I hated the first one until I got used to the combat, now I sort of like the combat. It's pretty simple, if a bit buggy.

Yeah. I was interested in the second one and sniped The Witcher 1 in a Steam Sale (think i paid 2 bucks for the enhanced edition). Unfortunately the combination of horrible controls, shitty voice acting and dated graphics turned me off imediately. Though i DO have an Xbox 360 controller now... that's worth testing, actually...

Can you get back to me on how that is? Honestly the God awful controls and gameplay were all that stopped me. I got the Witcher 3 when I bought a new Graphics Card lol.

Will do, but might take a while - just started playing ME3 again today (maybe before going to bed.)

edit: heh. Just realized it needs a downloadin', too.

Are we the only ones who like ME3? Pretty sure we are. But I'll do you a solid, I'll DL Witcher now and test it immediately.

I'm sure we aren't, but we may be the only ones who are cool with the endings.
Let's see whose connection is faster

Don't tell me you don't see not-Ellen Page-Ellie in her. Because i do. It's not even subtle.

edit: soooo The Witcher 1 either doesn't recognize my Xboy controller or just plain doesn't offer game pad support. Anyone know more?

edit 2: quick google search says it's the latter - no game pad support at all.

Not really. And that was just young Ciri.
