    Ofc it's ludicrously expensive when you order from Game of all places. Here in Norway at some retailers you could get it from 82

    Stores like Gamestop and Game are just ripping gamers of.

    @tiptup I reacted to this also...but then again he manages to compare a RPG to a MMORPG. So...not taking much written in this article that serious.

    Found most of my armor motifs books looking in cabinets etc...so..yeah.

    Coming from the PC version and I think the PS4 version is quite good. Sure it could get a bump in the gfx department and 60fps would be nice. But it's still highly enjoyable I think.

    I'm surprised that playing a mmorpg with a controller could work so good. I'm playing just as good/bad as on PC. And the addition of proximity voice chat opened up a whole new experience. Sure you have people with horrible microphones and kids. Those are easily muted.

    Was out fishing and a orc woman came up to me and started talking. First we role played a little but came out of that and talked for a while as the sun went down. A moment replaced by text from a random player with a voice and a presence.

    Tiny moments that will stick with you for a while.

    I have never understood the complaints for the game. But then again I am comparing it to other mmorpg games and not a rpg game. That said, there are better mmorpg games out there. But ESO is in my opinion on the list of the good ones.

  • The very first screenshots of World of Warcraft

  • _LarZen_ 10/06/2015

    @Bertie It's not rambling if it makes sense. And you make perfect sense :)

    Could be we get a VR game that will do for VR what World of Warcraft did for the mmorpg genera?

    That's the only thing I can imagine would make an impact like World of Warcraft did back in 2004.

    I dunno..time will tell I guess.

  • Twitch bans streaming of ESRB Adults Only-rated games

  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @jcaspian I love GTA5. But my point is that when Twitch wants to play the moral high ground card. They have a heck of a lot to censor and moderating to do then just ban all AO rated games.

    There are so many sick and perverted things you can do in GTA5 that it makes Hatred stand out as a joke to the entire genera.

    And GTA5 is just one example.

    And don't get me wrong. I do not want censor. I want children to be as safe as possible when watching Twitch. But I also want adults to be adults and make up their own minds on what they want to watch or not. Not having Twitch playing mom and dad.

    Some kind of age verification system and warning about adult content is what Twitch needs. Not stereotype American censor and moderation.

  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @LordDemigod Of course. And it's in their right to do so. But it just comes of as so incredible hippocratic when there is content streamed that is basically much much worse but is allowed because the developers managed to slip under the AO rating. Reply +1
  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @craigy Basically this. We all know by now that GTA5 should have been an Adults Only game.

    And I watched Hatred today. It's nothing compared to GTA5.

  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @LordDemigod Point is that Twitch is doing this to "protect" it's viewers. And by that logic dictates they are thinking about their younger audience.

    Adults don't need that kind of supervision. Were adults. At last in the country I live in.

    For being an "welcoming, inclusive community" they are sure making it hard.

    You know something is wrong when Twitch thinks it's OK for children to watch guts getting pulled out from the mouth. And bodies getting ripped in parts in Mortal Kombat.
    Or picking up a prostitute in GTA5. Get a blowjob and have her ride you. For so to beat her to a bloody pulp...

    That is what Twitch thinks is an "safe, welcoming, inclusive community platform where everyone can feel comfortable and have fun"

    Don't get me wrong. I'm an adult. I find this funny and hilarious on a morbid level.

    But when Twitch want's to play the censor card to "protect" it's viewers. And at the same time almost everything streamed is at a time or a other something so violent and horrible. It just makes me wonder if the people in charge at Twitch are mentally sound?

    Get an age verification system in place. Possible by Visa confirmation. And get violent games away from children. Mortal Kombat and GTA5 being two of them. But we all know that wont happen. Why? Because Twitch loves it's $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    And to end it. I actually watched Hatred today! On Hitbox. Some people have received early copies and are playing. And Hitbox say's it's OK as long as you mark your channel for 18+ only.

    So if you like streaming. Or watching people stream. And don't like people to say what you can and can't watch. Move your butt out from Twitch and try out Hitbox?

  • _LarZen_ 28/05/2015

    @Malacath If anything I'm a fan of facts.

    And you are taking it out of context. I did not write that it's clearer in motion.

    And I quote myself "And slowing down and taking a look around the beautiful landscape is quite different on the PS4 and XBO.

    Who would want to see a blurry scenery on XBO if they have the option to see clearly on PS4?"


    Blurry like these pictures http://imgur.com/a/g9PzO

    @Suarez07 I guess it can be fairly negligible if you play on a smaller TV. Personally I change between a 27" monitor and a 65" TV. So for me these negligible differences are not so negligible.

    On the monitor everything is closer so I see the differences faster. On the 65" stretching a 900p image over a 1080p panel at 65" shows every little negligible difference clear as the day is bright.

    @Adam-802 I agree it looks fine on XBO. It just looks better on PS4..

    And even better on PC.

    But you are right. Many people will not care. Enthusiasts however do :)

    @Adam-802 So you are saying these images are false? Your eyes are not able to see any differences? http://imgur.com/a/g9PzO Reply +5
  • _LarZen_ 27/05/2015

    @SeeNoWeevil But still it's delivering a much much more detailed image in motion. It's not even comparable to 30fps at all. And let's not forget about how much more responsive gameplay is...

    The consoles get's blurry in motion because of 30fps. But mostly in horizontal movements. When going forward you see things more clearly. And slowing down and taking a look around the beautiful landscape is quite different on the PS4 and XBO.

    Who would want to see a blurry scenery on XBO if they have the option to see clearly on PS4?

    But CD PROJEKT RED can't do magic. Even if we at times think they can looking at what they have made. The consoles have it's limitations. And especially the XBO is holding the visuals back...

    @McGooch If graphics is a priority and you can pick what console platform to get The Witcher 3 or any game for that matter. The PS4 is the way to go. It has the upper hand when it comes to graphic performance.

    And no amount of firmware updates can fix that on the XBO.

    That said..if you have gotten the taste for graphics and especially 60fps. Start looking into getting a PC. It's a gamechanger :)

  • _LarZen_ 27/05/2015

    @Adam-802 In motion it's hard to see yes. Especially when moving the camera horizontal. This is because 30fps makes everything blurry in motion.

    But you will notice it if you had the PS4 and XBO version side by side. The PS4 version is clearly sharper.

    Thankfully I can get it around 60fps on my PC so I don't loose image clarity when moving around :)

    @Adam-802 It's good that they decided to lock it at 30fps. But the visual difference is a tad much.. http://imgur.com/a/g9PzO Reply +12
  • What can we learn from The Witcher 3 "downgrade" fiasco?

  • _LarZen_ 27/05/2015

    I understand why the graphics have changed. And I have no issue with the game as it's today. I find it to be one of the best looking RPG games I have ever played.

    But just imagine if something like this was done with a movie. The trailer showing of something that just is not there when people are going to the cinema. People would demand their money back and the ramifications would be big.

    So why is it that the gaming industry again and again are getting away with it?

  • Face-Off: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

  • _LarZen_ 24/05/2015

    @maxsouth The video from 2013 was based on a verticle slice. You cant compare that to a finished build at all. And you just cant hold that against a developer.

    There are differences on the PS4 and XBO version. And there are on the PC version.

    The PC version is better in many ways. Better textures.Better AA.Better texture filtering.Better post processing.Better framerate. Better resolution.

    I have the game on both PC and PS4. So I can see it for myself. Both hooked up to a TV and/or a a monitor if I want. And there is major differences.

    The artistic style is the same but on a graphical level. It's great what they have managed on PS4. And even the most high end PC's struggle with running The Witcher 3 with all the bells and whistles on. In terms of graphical benchmarks Crysis just got pushed of the throne.

    @maxsouth The 5% that could run the game as it looked in 2013 from a vertical slice. Would be happy with the graphics.

    It looks stunning as it is now on both consoles and PC. People need to stop complaining and read up on how game development works.

    I just want to say thank you to Digital Foundry for doing these comparisons. I know you get allot of heat in the commenting sections here and on Facebook. You most likely already know this but these people that complain hopefully do not represent the average reader.

    I find it genuine interesting to read what game developers have managed to do with the hardware and the time they had to make a game. So on behalf of all of us I thank you!

    Keep up the good work you guys/gals do! :)

    Played both the PS4 and PC version. And I am surprised CD PROJEKT RED have managed to get the game to look as good as it is on PS4. On my PC I can run it at medium/high at 60fps. So it's what I would prefer to play it on. But then again that was a $1600 computer I built almost 3 years ago.

    So that a $399 console perform so good is impressive.

  • CD Projekt tackles The Witcher 3 downgrade issue head on

    @PCMaestro Crysis, the game that people to this day make fun of...

    There is no developer who in their right mind would make a game that most people could enjoy as they intended in a few years when the hardware is cheaper.

    I really loved how the game looked when it was a prototype. But I am glad they made the adjustments so most people would get the to play the game how they envisioned it.

    I can only pull of medium/high 1080p @60 fps but it's still one of the most alive and beautiful open world RPG's I have seen.

  • _LarZen_ 21/05/2015

    @PCMaestro Problem is that no one would have the hardware to play it. You need a 980 now. Just imagine what it would require if it was like the prototype....

    Everyone get a Titan X? Or wait 5 years before they can get "cheap" hardware to play it again as intended?

    @CliffPromise Yes I know. It's called a vertical slice. I know that what is shown on conferences like E3 is not what will be representative of the game people will get.

    Gamers in general do not know this. They see a trailer and believes that's what they will get.

    Star Wars: Battlefront is the newest example of that.

    I agree that the game now looks great. I think it looks great on PS4 and it looks even better on PC.

    The reason I commented is that you come of as there is no downgrade and that people should shut their mouths.

    There is a downgrade and gamers should open their mouth. With the hope that developers will mark their vertical slice with information that this is not what the final product will look like.

    E3 is just around the corner and believe me there will be shown content that will look nothing like the final product. Just a tiny message while the footage is shown that it's a concept not representative of the final product will do.

    @CliffPromise Yes it is beautiful on all platforms. But it's not anything close to what was shown from the start.

    If you cant see the difference or understand why gamers and even CD PROJEKT RED have issues with this.

    Well then you are a tit as you say.

    If you don't understand what is up to debate then maybe read up a little first?

    Eurogamer you should make a big article before E3 starts. Explaining to gamers how events like E3 works. What a verticle slice is and why games almost never end up looking like they do from a verticle slice.

  • The Witcher 3 is a masterpiece of world-building

  • _LarZen_ 12/05/2015

    Been playing a while now and it has some frame rate issues. In a game so beautiful and with so much details. It's kinda frustrating experiencing it in 30 and bellow. NPC's and monsters have bad animation frame rate and are really not flattering if they are a little bit away from you.

    Combat is also effected by low frame rate as it feels and looks like a game struggling with pushing out enough frames fast enough.

    If you have a PC that can deliver good enough frame rate. Please do yourself a favor and just go for that straight away.
