I'd say he sounds the same. It definitely looks like they beefed him up this time around. He must have been pumping some iron after his scuffles in TW2. Still a long ways from the macho-man Gears of War/God of War look though (thankfully!).

I'm really excited for this. Hopefully they tie in a little more of your choices from TW1 and TW2. I don't expect major multiple branches, but something other than 'Oh, Ada's still alive I guess' would be fun.

Either way, this will be GOTY material whenever it reaches us. CDPR is fantastic.

Finally watched that trailer and damn that was awesome. I already new I was going to be getting this one, but now I want it even more. I just want a release date, why? Cause then I know how long I have until I have to do a big upgrade on my machine.

Well, that's guaranteed, since the Northern Kingdoms are going sandbox. At least I'm guessing they're going with the Northern Kingdoms for the setting.

Hey so I just heard that this game will have the exact same look on PS4 and Xbone as it does on PC... Looking at thesehttp://http://www.rockpapershotgun.c...s/#more-174590 screenshots I am left with a question. Will The Witcher get AA before release? or will it be all jaggy because XBONE can't handle it? These screenshots aren't particularly impressive once you look at them in their native resolution.

That is not how CDPR works. They will push the PC version to what they can. The chances of the Xbox one and PS4 being the same is doubtful. While they are designing for all three at the same time they are not going to dumb down the PC version to make it the same as the console one.

At least that is what they have led me to believe.

Oh and here is one of the best places to get all of the artwork/screenshots:

The Witcher 3: Screenshot & Artwork collection - The Witcher board

Where did you hear this from? Also, "exact same look" could mean anything, unless you meant something specific. Furthermore, there's so much to graphical quality that can't be captured in a screenshot. Finally, the game isn't even finished.

If the 2.5 year old The Witcher 2 on DX9 can outpace almost anything on DX11 nearing 2014, I'm sure the Witcher 3 will do just fine in the graphical department. In fact, I'll place my bets on the final PC product looking absolutely gorgeous.

I wouldn't put any stock in that rumor. CDPR has always been good to the PC crowd. W2 is on 360 as well as PC and you can push the PC version to look substantially nicer (provided you have the GPU). Honestly, if you toggle the custom/advanced option in the W2 setup, you're given a huge amount of graphical options. Not to mention since W3 is supposed to be more modder friendly who knows what you'll be able to do. If W3 gets even half the modding support that Skyrim gets, you'll be able to make it look WAAAAAYYYY different than the console version.
