To reach the map from PS4 swipe the track-pad without pushing it.

0 button pushes > 1 button push.

suck it.

Yes, that works!

So for the PS4 we can access both inventory and the map quickly.

One what?

Saying "Xbox turn on" takes longer than pressing a button.

But pressing a button doesn't feel like the future...

(although depending on where you are in relation to the controller when you walk into the room, being able to turn it on by speaking could potentially be quicker)

Swiping to get to the map is cool. I have to tell that to my PS4 friends.

After they recharge their controllers again.

It's just "Xbox on." (admittedly, about two or three times )

This is $41.99 on Target.com right now for PS4/Xbox One, they do price match themselves in stores, just as an FYI.

Xbox One: http://www.target.com/p/the-witcher-...m=Witcher+3+PC

Re: The Witcher 3 - May 19, 2015 - PS4, XBO, PC

I think I am about to beat the game...at least it feels like it. I am at around 80 hours so far into it.

I sort of have a love/hate relationship with this game at times. The open world, and quest progression is superior to the previous Witcher games, but the combat is a step back. I am just finding no challenge at all even on the highest difficulty. Witcher 2 was not brutal on its highest setting, but at least it was a challenge at times. Witcher 1 was VERY hard on the higher settings, but a joy to beat. This game just completely lost that edge of your seat combat. Taking missions 5 levels higher than me has been nothing for a long time now. I also feel combat can be clunky at times. I can't put my finger on it, but something never clicks for me.

As I said in a earlier post... out leveling side missions not only denies you any sort of usable loot and xp, but it also makes them completely repetitive when you can just walk all over enemies and one shot them. I like level progression but the game so quickly levels you at times you leave much behind.

At this point I would give this a very high 8 out of 10....that is actually higher than I gave Witcher 2 the first time I played it, but when I played the second game on the highest difficulty it won me over and I raised my score.

It still is brilliant at times, and there is so much to love here, but I would say I am a little disappointed since I thought this would be on the short list as my game of the year.

Oh, and fuck taking damage when I fall from 5 feet. There seems to be no consistency on fall damage.

Well after Bloodborne got me back into gaming all of a sudden I went and picked this up, hope I end up enjoying it.

Sounds like you were expecting it to be Bloodborne/Dark Souls. I think the challenge/difficulty is just right. And while I wouldn't call the combat "clunky", it can be a bit too slippery.

BTW, this might be a glitch or not, though I don't see how it couldn't be...
(regarding the Baron's "Family Matters" quest).
Spoiler:
So I killed that Botchling creature, but a few missions later, when I ran through that area where I fought him, the fetus version of the Botchling is there, slightly hovering around the ground where he was buried, writhing around and making a noise. Needless to say, it was disturbing, but there was no way to interact with it. Also, I totally killed it earlier, so what is it doing there? So weird!

Still going strong with this. Managed to get the handle of Gwent and actually really enjoying the game. Not losing many games of it now, but occasionally come across someone with killers cards. Been going around buying and playing as much as I can.

BTW, one way to address the small text, on the PS4, you can zoom in on the text by pressing the PS button and the square button at the same time. The camera then can be navigated using the directional pad, and then you can close zoom by pressing the circle button. Not the best way of dealing with it, but better than nothing.

I like gwent a lot, too. It's fun to destroy people. The computer is pretty dumb though when it comes to using all their cards.

I wonder if it gets harder on the higher difficulties.
