Re: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt announced

TW2 is $10 for the steam midweek madness »store.steampowered.com/app/20920/

and TW1 is $5 »store.steampowered.com/app/20900/

I don't mean to try and hijack a thread, but I figured some people reading this may want to play the first two if they haven't already, and for $15 you can get both right now.

That's really a steal, although I'd skip TW1 and just wikipedia the storyline. The combat was pretty bad in it.

To each their own. I loved the first Witcher, great game, though the click-timing combat was enjoyable to me I agree it's not everyone's cup 'o tea. The easy combat system isn't necessarily a knock against it... some of us don't mind a really good story-telling rpg that's maybe a little less challenging in combat only. Witcher 1 has a hell of a good story to discover as you play, not read about in a wiki.

This news gives me something to to look forward to. I have plenty of faith in CDP-Red to deliver the goods.

I agree, about the only thing I don't like about tw is the combat. Graned for the $2.50 I paid for it in the fall sale i'd say it was money well spent for how much fun I've gotten from it.

Oh man so tempted to buy TW2, I went 3/4 into the first one until I could not take the combat anymore.

Do it man. I have played both(well havent finished tw1 yet but you get what I'm saying) it is FAR worlds better in tw2. You use the mouse buttons to swing the sword kinda like a 3rd person skyrim only it works better. You use can set your witcher powers to q(I think, I don't remember for sure I think I put it on a different button) or use the number row at the top to fire them. Eventually you get a parry skill and if you spend the upgrades a counter skill.

TL;DR. Get it, the combat is drastically better in tw2. And if a KB+M isn't your style you can use a controller.

EDIT: forgot to mention when you buy ether witcher game on steam you get it for free on gog. Not just the game but all the extras. Guide sound track, art a comic. And for those who want it Triss' playboy shoot for tw2.

Steam is running a 50% off sale on TW2 right now.

Hard to pass up.

Its also $10 on GOG.com now too, both are 50% off on steam and gog.com. Personally I'd get the gog one because no drm.

I'd get the steam one and then use the key that you got on gog for free, so you'll get both versions at the end.
