I cared about these things for Mass Effect (where sadly your epic choices ended up being completely immaterial) but the Witcher world never really got me so involved so I don't care about continuity.

I'm on my second playthrough of witcher 3 now. It's a nice game and I like it a lot, althought it is sort of frustrating that you have to do some quests in a certain order since other quests will remove persons needed from the game...

I've only put about half an hour into it but the first thing that practically slapped me in the face was how every character felt like a real person and not a bland generic fantasy cookie-cutter stereotype*.

To be fair my 2015 model year Skyrim is probably the same size.

I bought a buddy Darksouls 3, and he gifted me the Witcher 3 yesterday. Plan to download all 30 or so gigs of it tonight while I sleep. Then hope my aging video card does not burst into flame when I try to run the game.

If you have only baseen game, then I would recommend you to get Hearts of Stone. It really, REALLY worth it.

I read some reviews that said basically Heart of Stone is "more of the same" and there is already a LOT of Witcher 3. I'm waiting for the Steam summer sale, probably will be able to get a good deal on the DLC.

Basically did nothing but Witcher 3 this long weekend. I'm 2/3rds through Act I, lvl 19, cause I do all the side quests (so I think the leveling system wasn't very well thought out). I play on low difficulty cause combat isn't something amazing (90% of it is good dodge timing) and I really only care about the stories. And the stories are very adult, not just because there's a lot of cursing, but because they deal with adult problems and the characters behave like adults. I keep getting surprised by little details and nuances, there's clearly been put a lot of thought behind the characters and interactions. Overall incredible experience.

Playing the Witcher 3 over the weekend led to my elderly pc dying for good. Just got done ordering parts to build new one. New one will be able to play Witcher 3 on max graphical settings. I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas.

That's my build except I am going with a I5 on a board that I can upgrade plug and play an I7 later on.

It is. Although my 200+ mod Skyrim doesn't look much worse (in some ways - better, though that might be because I have customized the looks to match my preferences).

 

I started the Witcher books and since I'm kinda sick I've paused my W3 game. I thought the game was inspired by the books but it turns out that it follows them very closely and if you read them suddenly you learn a LOT about the world and the characters (it seems most characters come straight from the books). Suddenly there's a ton of backstory to Ciri and Yenniffer etc. I wish I read them before I started the game.
