good point.

The statements of developers at Ready at Dawn, BioWare, and Ubisoft make me disagree often.

zenith16, there is cursing in that trailer. That is why I didn't post it. I'd suggest taking it down.

This game has certainly caught my attention recently. It looks gorgeous. Definitely thinking of picking it up. Think I'll get Arkham Knight first though.

huh? I thought it was okay to post cursing videos as long as we link instead of embed it?

  • The damage made to Geraltís face when heís intoxicated by his potion is actually displayed in cutscenes. White Honey cures it.
  • There are very very few fetch quests in the game. The team doesnít particularly like them. Those that are there spend time developing the character that gives the quest. For instance thereís one in which you have to go from point to point with a character, and while you do he tells you in depth about him. That can influence the choice at the end of the quest.
  • Monsters can attack you while youíre meditating.
  • The AI of normal animals like sheeps and goats is pretty basic. It will tell them that thereís a bush that they might like within their radius, so theyíll go eat it. The same goes for animals or entities theyíre scared of, causing them to run away.
  • If you kill that goat, itís gonna produce a smell, and monsters may be attracted to it if thereís one that likes that kind of meat in the radius. If no one eats it and the corpse rots, a different kind of monster that eats rotten meat will be attracted.
  • If there are deers in an area wolves will hunt them, but if you kill all the deers you may see some wolves patrolling, but there will be less because thereís less game.
  • The reason why ice skating was removed from the game (very few things have been actually cut) is because creating a big fight based on a completely different set of mechanics that havenít been explained or used before and that the players didnít have the opportunity to master is a bad idea, as it gets people killed too easily and frustrated.
  • In some cases when you kill the monsters in an area, humans will settle it. In the prologue thereís actually a cutscene that shows is as it happens so that the players understand the mechanic. Itís not always so simple, and there are different states. Whenever you go into an area the game will check what you have and what you havenít done, who you helped, who you killed, the decisions you made during quests and dialogue. That can change a lot of things, including the people that spawn in a village. The mechanic is simple, but it can get complex because of all the branching.
  • Monsters donít scale with your level. If youíre way underleveled compared to a monster, youíll do almost no damage.
  • The level of an enemy is displayed, but is its level is indicated by a skull you better stay away, because itís way too strong for you, and it might even oneshot you.
  • The bestiary populates itself as you learn information and eventually it tells you where a monsterlives, at what times of day it appears, what itís vulnerable to.
  • Gear has been moved around very recently to re-balance it.
  • You wonít find items you canít use because youíre too low level. They will automatically scale down to your level if theyíre too high for you. For instance the damage of a weapon will be lower, even if they will keep their ďcoolĒ elements like setting elements on fire for instance. Once you pick up an item, its stats are set, so it wonít scale back up to its original stats. That said, youíll always get better loot as you move forward anyway. Thereís no need to wait to be the right level before you get an item.
  • You can use Axii on your horse to force him not to panic during combat. Quen can be changed from defensive to offensive, and it can explode and damage enemies when itís penetrated.
  • There was a big conversation within the team on whether Geralt could be fully nude or not. The conversation also involved the extra polygons that would be used for his penis and who would animate it while running. On the other side, others believed that there was a lot of female nudity in the game, so there should be male nudity as well. The result is that thereís a lot more male nudity than in previous games, but Geralt still normally wears his underwear.
  • The Gwent minigame was designed to last ten minutes tops for each match. You can win money, new cards, enter a torunament with all the best Gwent players. There are even quests linked to the game.
dunno if this video has cursing

I couldn't stop laughing at the "who gets to work the penis" lines. If they were meant to not be funny.. Well.. Sorry, lol.
