Really, i thought it looks great, a lot of detail in those pics'

I'm not sure what you really expect from the next gen but compare these with the last game.

I've heard many great things about The Witcher and its sequel, and the possibility of a third episode on next gen consoles would be great... But as a console gamer I'd love to play the first game at long last before playing the others. Even a straight port would do. Shame the planned PS3/xbox version never saw the light of day.

Really? I think it looks really nice.

The Witcher 2 on PC running with all the bells and whistles switched on is something to behold, the level of details is insane. Easily one of the best looking games of this generation. I expect this will look very impressive too.

It doesn't really look any more detailed than 2. Not that i'm slagging, 2 looks utterly gorgeous and I mostly played on medium so it ran well enough on 3 screens (EPEEEEEEEEEEENNN!).

Maybe as 2 was small areas and this is a wide open world you will see that detail spread across a huge vista, and it will be all the more impressive for it.

Either way I'm really looking forward to it.

I assume these are PC screens but PC is most the time the better looking version of any game so I guess next gen consoles will look like this. It looks nice I suppose. After reading more about this game what I read impresses me more than how it looks. 40 times bigger than teh last game, no load screens and so on.

It's something I'll be interested in when I do get around to buying a next gen console. Not sure if that will be 2014 though to be honest as I'm in no rush to upgrade. :P

3 screens witcher 2. you mustve covered that setup in a lot of jizz


I took a screenshot with every stroke :lol:

You actually HAD to play it in 3 screens if you had it setup. There was a bug that meant lowering the resolution did nothing. It always played at your native res. Hard times.

Looks really nice to me, static screens never do games justice. Don't judge the next generation by its launch games, chances are most of the games will have been intended for this gen then switched at the last minute. Just look at this gens launch games, most were just simply xbox/ps2 games at a higher res. If this runs in full 1080p at 60fps ill be more than happy.

Not japanese enough?

IDD. If/When those are converted into real time movement they'll be mighty impressive

I have never had any need/desire to build a PC gaming rig until now. I loved Witcher 2 on xbox so much I went out and bought 3 of the books.

I need this game

Not impressed? I'm not trying to start a war or anything but have you looked at this game? It is in fact looking better then The Witcher 2 and is 30 times bigger. Even bigger then Skyrim. Anyone remember how we said that Skyrim looked awesome and you can't expect graphics ike The Wither 2's in a world this big? That our generation of console's can't handle such power? Well, as I already stated, this game's even looking better then the previous one. So yeah, I should be impressed you know. Cyberpunk 2077 is also looking awesome, even though we only have seen one shrt trailer. Although I do think Watch Dogs is probably the best looking game, this still looks awesome. Also keep in mind Watch Dogs isn't going to have a world THIS big. Thank you for your attention ;)
