OT: The Official Video Game Discussion Thread
So The Witcher 3, the first of two summer blockbuster games being released this year, was just released today. I pre-ordered my copy from Best Buy and the exclusive steelbook looks fantastic and I'm currently listening to the free soundtrack that came with the game and it's EPIC.

For those unaware of the game, it plays a bit like Red Dead Redemption and Skyrim with the lore a bit like Game Of Thrones and the devs have made it where you don't have to play the first two in the series to jump right in.

It is on my steam wishlist. If it is anything like Skyrim or Dragon Age then it should be a hit. However, I am buried deep in GTA V at the moment and wouldn't have time to take it in.

I got it last night, but only got to play it for a short time. I'm impressed so far, much better than Skyrim by all measures.

RE: OT: The Witcher 3 (Video Game) Official Discussion Thread
I've never understood the fascination with Skyrim/Bethesda games in general. Normally they look like crap, play like rigid planks of wood, and by and large, are more "farm and grind" than any other games this side of WoW. I'm way more partial to the Dragon Age/Witcher area of fantasy RPGs...that being said, my favorite pure open world games for sheer discovery/entertainment value are the Just Cause games.

Fallout is the best Bethesda series by far. This morning I popped Witcher 3 in since I didn't have time yesterday and told myself I would only play it for like 10 minutes. I ended up playing it for TWO hours...

I have such a backlog though that I'm going to try to power through the rest of the DR3 DLC and the rest of TEW before I get too far in the other games I currently have.

Luckily I never trade in open world games so I have plenty of time for DA:I, GTAV (already beat it on 360, but not the One yet), SofM, W3, etc. but I need to get some of them finished before Fallout 4 consumes my life haha.

I never really liked Fallout for the exact same reasons as the Elder Scrolls series, plus with the game-breaking VATS add-on, I always felt like it took no skill whatsoever to play, and if I have a game like that, I at least want something cool to look at or entertaining to move through, and the Fallout 3/Fallout: New Vegas maps/stories were pretty awful.

I love the games that you just get lost in, and I never could do that with the Bethesda games, since it always felt like work.

I liked VATS because it turned it into sort of a turn based game. Now that I'm a more seasoned gamer now who prefers to hack and slash a bit more it'll be more interesting how I play the game.

OT: The Official Video Game Discussion Thread (The Witcher 3 NOW OUT)
Went ahead and changed it so with that in mind the top 5 games I'm looking forward to in no order:

Fallout 4
Halo 5
Kickstarter spiritual successors (Mighty No 9 and Yooka-Laylee)
Scalebound
AC: Syndicate (Ubisoft seems to have learned after last year)

All but announced, Bethesda has apparently got a huge chunk carved out for E3, so everyone is thinking that's when the announcement will take place.

No apparently, they have an hour long pressed that Sunday to lead off E3 and the LinkedIn leak all but confirmed we'll see at least a trailer. I also have inside info from a good friend of mine. Game will be out no later than next year.

Hopefully they figure it out graphically, as far as I'm concerned they have no excuse now with how well the other development groups are making these next gen games look.

Speaking of figuring it out, it looks like Ubisoft is turning the page on trying to exploit the crap out of their customers with broken games if the early alphas of the new Deus Ex and AC games progress the way they should in the next half year...that being said, it is a bit troubling that a game set to release in November only has pre-alpha gameplay footage. I'm hoping for a blowout at E3 for them.
