2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

The Witcher Is Super Cheap For A Spell (Spell, Like A Witch Casts Spells)

You know how you're always saying that you'll get around to playing The Witcher games, but when they're on sale and you've got a chance. Well, look, they're all on sale at GOG, and you've got that spare afternoon coming up!

The Myth Behind The Monsters of The Witcher 3

The Northern Kingdoms of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [official site] is a realm ravaged by war, pestilence, and greed. And, try as he might, Geralt continually finds himself trapped between the political maneuverings of the Northern Kingdom's most ambitious contenders. So it's easy to forget that Geralt's true calling in life is as a monster slayer. Lucky for him the Northern Kingdoms has no…

Feature: Why The Series Coheres

CD Projekt Red On The Making Of The Witcher 1:
“We thought we could accomplish anything.”

The Witcher 3 [official site] brings to a close one of the strangest trilogies in games. Unlike a series like Mass Effect, where the first game's design laid a foundation for each subsequent instalment, The Witcher series completely reinvented itself at every turn. Yet despite the way CD Projekt Red lurched from one design to another, the series also retained an undeniably unique and consistent…

Buy Anything On GOG, Get A Free Copy Of Witcher

Purchasing games is hard. Nearly impossible, in some cases. You have to pick one out, remember your credit card number, do, like, a million other things, and then¬†pray that the game will materialize on your hard drive via magicks so dark that their casters take their coffee¬†double-black. Oh, and the process always, invariably costs at least 14 million dollars. I was thinking of giving up…

Conjured: The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition

One of our favourite things about CDP was the fact that they didn't just give up on The Witcher and move on, they redid the voice acting and the animation, as well as fixing a whole buinch of bugs with their Enhanced Edition. They're doing something similar with The Witcher 2, although this time the changes are more substantial, with new features and content. The…

The Witcher II To Land On Origin

I'm fairly ignorant of what's on EA's Origin, which I currently think of as a Battlefield 3 launcher. But even I can't wilfully avoid the news of more new publishers dropping games onto the digital distribution service. Not when it's the likes of Paradox, Trion Worlds, and CD Projekt.

How The Witcher Dealt With Choice

With The Witcher 2 looming like a dark juggernaut of RPG-based distraction, we thought it might be a good time to go back and poke around in the original game. Just what was it that really made it sing? (There may be some mild spoilers ahead.) Forget about the sex cards, forget about the five hour slog through the Outskirts, ignore the occasionally shoddy writing…

Eurogamer: Witcher Extended Edition Review

Eurogamer get me to review the Enhanced Edition of the Witcher. Wherein I start like this... Not having read a film mag in years, I don't know if they still do this, but... I always despised the dual-mark DVD review section where they give separate marks for films and add-ons, with a similar sort of split shown in the actual reviews in terms of what…
