Geralt’s first outing as The Witcher is free on GOG

If you've played through The Witcher 2 and The Witcher 3, you've spent hundreds of hours with the character of Geralt of Rivia. But have you ever taken the time to go back to the beginning? I... absolutely have not. But I played enough Witcher over the years to have encountered people and quests from the first title that I had to fill in via…

Have You Played… The Witcher 3?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I have a mental firewall about how recent a game can be before I'm allowed to write a Have You Played? about it. In my head, The Witcher 3 is about three months old and therefore invalid. It's two years old next month.…

How Do You Solve A Problem Like Geralt?

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites a developer to help him put their game up on blocks and take a wrench to hack out its best feature, just to see how it works. It’s about the sweat, grease and genius behind the little things that make games special. Here’s a question: How do you solve a problem like Geralt? There he is, stern…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Looking Back With Spoilers

Many games suffer from a little bit of distance. You play them and they seem great, but once the novelty has faded, so has part of their soul. I'd say Dragon Age: Inquisition is a good example there. It's a game I enjoyed, but it's also one I've not really thought about since its credits rolled. With The Witcher III: Wild Hunt [official site] though,…

Witcher 3 Patch Notes: Gravity Will Apply To All Horses

"Various improvements to horse behavior". That was a patch note Marsh showed me last week. I had hoped it was one of God's own patch notes and He was finally going to address the problems with those four-legged jerks but apparently it was CD Projekt Red talking about The Witcher 3 [official site] and the upcoming 1.07 patch. Disappointing.

Everything You Need To Know Before The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [official site] is only a couple of days away! The final adventure of Geralt of Rivia, and CD Projekt's chance to prove that they can take the RPG skills they've honed in the first two games to a sweeping open world. We'll have a review up for you as soon as possible, but until then, here's some CliffsNotes to get…

Witcher 3 CGI Trailer Is Unrepentantly Witchery

In an ideal world I'd be reviewing The Witcher 3 [official site] for RPS (not that we got code at the same time as consoleland, waah waah what a cold and hostile universe this is), but now I'm a beleaguered dad I barely have time for morning ablutions, let alone 100-200 hours of stabbing and sexing. All being well, I will start a relaxed-of-pace diary…

Watch First 1/800th Of The Witcher 3, If You Want

It may be you're the sort that wants to go into a game cold, knowing as little as is possible. It may be that your keen to be there on day one but want all available information to guide your purchasing decision. If you're one of the latter, IGN's video of the first 15 minutes of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [official site] may help.…

The Witcher 3’s Intro Cutscene Has All The Special Effects

What is a roleplaying game without an extravagant pre-rendered introductory cutscene these days, eh? One I can start playing that much quicker, that's what. But The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt means to take its place in the RPG premiership, and it's got the CGI to prove it. Killings! Fire! Vast armies! Decapitated horsies! Devouring earth! Tribal drums! Yodelling! Beardmen!

Presenting Exhibit A In The Witcher 3 Trial

There were so many great games in Cologne this year and yet I decided that the first thing I'd write about from the show would be the one disappointment. Maybe disappointment comes more naturally to me or maybe I just wanted to get it out of the way - whatever the case, later that evening, I was slightly annoyed with myself for sending a grumpy…

Witcher MOBA ‘Possible’ On PC, But Nothing Yet

You may or may not have heard, but CD Projekt has partnered with Fuero Games to make a Witcher MOBA. A mobile Witcher MOBA. It's called Witcher: Battle Arena, so you won't confuse it with Witcher: Hockey Arena or Witcher: Arena Rock. And yes, I know this world already has more than enough MOBAs, but this one looks kinda OK. So I had to ask,…

Why I’m (Ever So Slightly) Worried About The Witcher 3

Oh, I do so love a good disclaimer. Why, I think I see one galloping over the hill right now! Look at it go, diving in to interject just as I was about to say something ill-conceived/stupid. So: I largely think The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks excellent. I got to watch (though not play, sadly) a new 45 minute demo of it during E3,…

Ten Points For Gryphon Gore: The Witcher 3

There are four main types of games likely to show up in the big E3 presentations. They are Men With Guns games, Men With Swords games, Men In Cars games and Men In Shorts games, and I seem to have drawn the longsword. Having just peeped at Dragon Age, I've now plucked The Witcher 3 out of the Enormous Hat O' Videos. It's a ridiculously…

Witcher 3 Gets Release Date, Bonkers New Trailer

In an alternate universe, people are scared to death that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is going to collapse under the weight of its own ambition and snap the neck of its brilliant potential in the process. And to be honest, I'm still feeling the tiniest bit of that in this universe. Going from Witcher 2's traditional (though ambitious) trawl to an open-world 50 times…

Worry Not: There Will Be No More Witcher 3 Delays

In a moment that nearly bled the world's supply of frowny face emoticons dry, CD Projekt recently announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt won't be vaulting, cavorting, or Geralt-ing about until February 2015. The hunt, at this particular moment, is off. But you know what? I think I'm gonna be OK. I think... yeah, I'm gonna be alright. I've endured worse, like that time…

Witcher 3 Release Date Not Definite, Cyberpunk Unaffected

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt isn't strutting down the beardwalk until 2015. Boooooo. But we shall save mourning for another day, as there is work to be done and questions to be asked. After all, CD Projekt isn't just a Witcher factory anymore. It's also working on Cyberpunk 2077 and a couple mysterious "smaller" games. When Geralt - CDP's clear ace-in-the-hole - gets shuffled back into…

Boooooo! – The Witcher 3 Delayed To 2015

It was all going to be so simple. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was set to come out toward the end of 2014, and I was going to tear into it like a ravenous wolf cub, all fur and fang and aggression, no hesitation or 9-5 desk job or mortgages I should be worrying about. But that, sadly, is no longer the plan. CD Projekt's…

Finally: There Is A Witcher Boardgame

The day that everyone's been eagerly awaiting is finally upon us. After years of suffering through CD Projekt's childish "videogame" machinations, The Witcher is assuming its proper place on sturdy, grown-up tables the world over. The Witcher Adventure Game - which is not a Witcher adventure game - is a four-player role-based romp through the series' witchy wilds. All the trademarks are in place: recognizable…

At Least Some Of These 65 Witcher 3 Screens Are New

We've no new Witcher 3 videos of late, but if you scroll through these really, really quickly, it'll be just like watching a low frame rate, abysmally edited video. Make some sword-swooshing noises as you do it, for added effect. The genesis and/or novelty of these 65 1080p screenshots of CDP's next massive roleplaying game is somewhat indeterminate at present, but I'm sure a good…
