i was gonna get a 700 series card, but I'll wait now to see exactly when witcher 3 comes out before I upgrade. Yes, its that important. Games like that are few and very, very far between.
I know how you feel, I personally cant wait for Fallout 4, im not sure why but I loved 3 and NV, and dumped so many hours into both. I have both Witcher games, but have not actually played them yet, but I do plan on completing them soon.
Pumped for Witcher 3 and haven't even played the second yet..
Downloaded the first and the second one off Steam when they had the sale and fell in love with the first game! Can't wait to beat it and move on to the Witcher 2! Even the graphics for the first one are pretty solid..
Definitely going to pick up Witcher 3! No questions asked (even thinking about buying the novels)
There's a lot I like about it. Good voice acting and more of a "human" element to the interaction and story - especially compared to a game like Skyrim where character interaction is about as deep as my kitchen sink.
The game is very pretty. It's easy to run, even with my GTX570, as long as super-sampling is off. I don't see what the big fuss was with the graphics. Skyrim with a few texture packs looks a lot better than this game, to me. The hair is especially awful. Geralt's hair looks like a half dozen polygons shaded by a 5-year-old in MS Paint. Some good art direction covers a multitude of sins, though. It's a very pretty and interesting environment....in a fantasy kind of way.
Combat is.....meh. I guess it's alright. Skyrim is a lot more fun to me as far combat. I'm just a big fan of FP view though......it makes me feel like I'm actually in the action as opposed to observing it from a distance.
Witcher 3 sounds like they're really going to change the gameplay style. I'm very interested to see what they come up with.
