Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on March 25, 2022 by getbent57

The_Witcher_A_New_Saga_BeginsIt was kind of obvious that there would be a new Witcher game in the works.  The third game is awesome and way too popular not to make another one.  Well the other day (March 21, 2022) it was made official by CD Projekt Red with a post on the Witcher website which you can read > here.  The post is called A New Saga Begins.  The other big news with this post, is that they are switching game engines from their own to Unreal Engine 5. Am sure the game will be years away from being out.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2022 by getbent57

It has been many years since I have last played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  Thinking about starting a new game.  Was planning on doing that when I finished watching the first season of The Witcher on Netflix but never got around to it.  Then I was going to hold off for the next gen update coming for the PS5 and Xbox Series.  However don’t think that will be happing any time soon.  Plus I still haven’t seen a PS5 in stores yet.  Now that I have finished watching season two of The Witcher it has been on my mind again.

Have some awesome news to share if you are a fan of the game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  The games in coming to next gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X.  They have a post which you can read > here.   It will available as on disc.  However the best part is.  If all ready own a copy there will free update for the new version.  Not sure how this will work yet.  But my guess is you will put the original disc in the news system and it will download the full new game to your hard drive.  I have the day one copy for my PS4 so I hope this will get the free upgrade and not just the Complete Edition.  Will be keeping and eye out for more info.

While I have a big back log of PS4 games to play. Thinking about going though The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt again. Because it has been five years since it came out.  All so because I got around to start watching the Netflix The Witcher show.  As of typing this only watched the first episode.  So thinking I should wait to see all the season first before jumping back in.  Wild Hunt is one of the best games every made.  Do believe it is the only big open world RPG I played though started to finish twice.  So jut make it three times.

The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on April 28, 2018 by getbent57

The_Witcher_Enhanced_EditionOne of my all time favorite games is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  Never played the other games in the series.  Mostly because back then they came out they were on PC.  Which I didn’t have one that could run them.  They were all so on the Xbox but didn’t have one.  If you are like me and want to try them out.  We are in luck.  GOG.com is giving the The Witcher: Enhanced Edition for free.  Of course there is a bit of catch to it.  But nothing too complicated.  Well you need to have a GOG account.  The next thing you have to do is download the free game GWENT.  If you never heard of this.  It is a card game which was featured first in the Wild Hunt game.  It came super popular.  So they made a standalone game. Have you do that there is a link > here and subscribe to their newsletter.  Once that is done you can download the first game. This doesn’t take long.  Not sure when I will get around to playing it.  But free game is a free game.

Have mostly been collecting the Funko vinyls Mystery Minis.  But do own four the POP line.  Well have one more now.  Was in at the comic book store and seen that they had all kinds of new ones.  They had a section for one from games.  Then seen Geralt from The Witcher games.  Am a huge have of the third game.  So couldn’t pass it up.  Have to say the POP vinyl’s get better looking all the time.  More detail in the paint makes them so much nicer.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Patch 1.30

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2016 by getbent57

The_Witcher_3.jpgThis is another big patch out now for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, numbered 1.30..  Didn’t think there would be any more after they put a big one back in June to go along with the last DLC.  Thinking for sure this will be the last one.  Because there is a new version of the game.   The game of the year edition or some places are calling the complete edition.  This version will have all the DLC and this new patch on disc.  So you haven’t played this game yet now might be a good time to jump in.  You can read about all the changes > here.  The patch and new version of the game were out August 30, 2016.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2016 by getbent57

The_Witcher_3.jpgOnce again talking about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  Back in May (2016) decided to play from the very beginning.  There has been many patches to the game.  Making it so much better play.   They over hauled the menu screens.  So much easier to navigate around.  As I am typing this (July 10, 2016) have played about 65 hours and am at character lvl 22.  Don’t think I am very close to finishing this any time so.   Most because of all the side quests that are so good.  Just might try to focuses more on the main storyline.  Say this every time I talk about The Witcher 3.  This is on of the best games ever made.  If you haven’t picked it up do so.  However if you want all the DLC and what not.  Have read that here is a game of the year edition coming out soon.

[Update] July 15,  Have played 70 hours and at level 25.  Think I am on the last few main missions.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Patch 1.22

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2016 by getbent57

The_Witcher_3.jpgThe last day of May (2016) there was a new patch out for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, 1.20.  Which I thought it would be the last one out because they just put out the very last bit of DLC for the game.  Well the other day, June 20, 2016 they put out 1.22 patch.  You can read the patch notes > here.  It is a bit over three pages log.  Did a quick read though.  The only thing I came across that I can see that I hard a problem with was, when body parts would get suspended in mid-air after an enemy exploded.

A while back started to play from the begin again.  My goal is to see if I can finish it before No Man’s Sky comes out.  So far played over 40 hours.  Had fun the whole time.  This is an awesome game.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Patch 1.20

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 30, 2016 by getbent57

The_Witcher_3.jpgThere is a new patch out for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  The last and latest expansion called Blood and Wine is going to be out May 31, 2016.  So they put the patch will be out that day before.  This 1.20 patch adds all kinds of improvements and fixes.  You can read the official list > here.  They are doing lots of great fixes to the inventory and menu screens.  Which they have done is past patches.  Think these new ones will make it much better to navigate the menus.  Looking forward to seeing all the changes.  Have been playing this game a lot this past month.  Started over from the begin.  Played about 20 hours and sure most of the stuff I have played all ready.  It is still super fun.  Playing it differently than the first time around.   If you haven’t tried this game yet it is well worth the time and money.

[Update]

Have the patch downloaded and installed. It is just under 7GBs.  The patch completely changes the look and how the menu systems feels.  First of they look cleaner, bigger and easier to read.  The navigation is some what easier but still clunky.  Will take some time getting used to it all over again.  The only thing I don’t like is when you press/hold L1 to pick what Sign you want to use.  You used to use the right stick.  Now it is moved to the left stick.  Not sure if this can be changed back.  Will have to look.
