Eep. I thought I was very well prepared with my i5 2500k and GTX 750 Ti as no game so far has yet beaten that combination down. If that means the game doesn't run well enough I'm going to be a little disappointed (and 400+ euro's poorer soon after). Here's hoping optimalisation works very well at release.
I'm all about getting the most out of games, so whenever I discover something very strange or push the limits, I upload them here:

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress to more pain."
- George Orwell

If those truly are the minimum requirements, not the recommended requirements, goddamn.  That's a bit absurd.
I like to stare at the sun.

 
Glad I worked during the short winter break I get instead of lazing off. If I take up a few more sidejobs before I have to focus on my exams I'll probably be able to afford a 390X. I don't think my aging 7970Mhz edition will quite cut it.

Witcher 2 had pretty terrible optimization, but was also mostly playable at ~30-40 fps for me at 900p. I'm hoping the same goes for Witcher 3. I'm stuck on a laptop, so upgrading isn't an option.

 
New video explaining a little bit the background of the Witcher universe. Very well done, especially the narration.


 
CDPR have hosted several hands-on events for the press across the globe, giving journalists first-hand impressions of the game. The studio are also going to do a Twitch livestream on Monday showing some gameplay and doing a Q&A session.

They've also released a small appetizer. Looks neat  ;)


Edit:
New gameplay video

Oh guys, use that [ url ][ img ][ /img ][ /url ] :/

 
New gameplay from PAX East, but apparently it is from an one month old build of the game:


This video has again rekindled the downgrade controversy on the official forums. I'm on the fence on this issue, especially since CDPR haven't shown the game on the highest possible graphical settings. On the other hand, graphics are not that important for me in a Witcher game.

Sooo there is that:


Also, that:


I hope there will be an option to turn off those slowdown finishing moves. They are lame.

The slow down is ****ty IGN editing. It doesn't exist in other gameplay vidoes.

To be honest, I have enough of Witcher 3. Im working as Customer Service Specialist (Support), and number of problem I had to deal with is just making me sick about this game, and how many people are just dumb...
..not to mention that my computer cant even dream of running it
--Did it! It's RELEASED! VeniceMirror Thread--

 
This game is pretty hardware intensive, but I'll be damned if it beats me. I'll overclock till my room is burning before I admit I can't run hairworks at 60fps.
Seriously though, it doesn't look quite as good as it did in the 2013 trailers, but I'm guessing that's because they had to adjust and downgrade some stuff so that it can run on 8th gen console (they didn't have their stats back in 2013 and probably thought they'd be a lot more powerful).
It would be hard to blame a company like CD projekt RED for scummy busyness practices because they've been very consumer friendly with TW1 and TW2. Day1 GoG releases are a big plus too.

I am not yet ready for 3.  I am playing 1 and 2 and reading the books.

I like the look of it, but 50 quid is a bit too rich for my blood at the moment.

Ended up caving and buying it, crossing my fingers that my actually-sub-minimum requirements system would run it.

It does!

Right now I'm on a Pentium G3420 with 4GB of RAM and an R7 265 (essentially an overclocked 7850). Underspec across the board, but it runs reasonably well at above-minimum auto-detected settings. Bear in mind that my personal standard for "reasonably" is definitely coloured by years of running games on the absolute minimum specs.

Hunh. Guess I'd better finally finish 1 and 2.
