Anyone getting it next week?

I never played through 1 (got bogged down and bored in the village before entering Vyzima), and therefore never played 2. So I will likely not buy/play 3 yet.

I may once I've finished watching play throughs of the games (I'm watching Gopher's playing through 1, usually when playing something else) at which point #3 might be on sale already.

Shame, really, because I loved the stories.

Heh, it's similar with me - the only difference being that I own a PS4 now so might just as well get Witcher 3.

I did love the books, especially the short stories, though.

I have the short stories (came in two volumes here), though I haven't checked if the other books have been translated (given the popularity of the games I wouldn't be surprised).

One thing in the previews that stood out a bit to me was that Gopher was absolutely amazed that there were almost no loading screens, and that even entering buildings was seamless.

I seem to recall that Gothic 1&2 (maybe 3?) did that, too; though their world was arguably much smaller than what Witcher 3 will have. And I think most buildings didn't have doors.

Apparently they fixed the combat.

Too busy and away from home to purchase at release, will check it out when back home in 5 weeks.

I bought 1&2 last weekend.  It whiles the time away but there's *a lot* of fetching quests, it's heavily scripted (can't change your appearance, you're forced into the relationships drawn from the novels I presume (Triss Marigold?) - to the point of having to play the 'ladies' man' Geralt is supposed to be if you want to progress :yucky:  And naturally it's not an open world.  I wish I was discovering Skyrim again!

The third installment looks gorgeous and it is an open world.  But we're still stuck with Gerald the horny lone wolf.

Well, it's a game with an established protagonist. Complaining about it is like complaining that you can only play as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider or What's-His-Face in Uncharted.

I finished the second one last week. Loved it despite it's faults (QTE  :yucky:)- Will definitely be getting the third one.

Graphics card can't run it.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

If it's not a bugfest on release then I'll play it fairly soon. I played the other 2 so CD Project have me by the balls.

My PC can only probably run it at low settings, which would kinda suck given how striking it looks. I probably will wait until I buy a new system.
