  5. Alright so recently every time I come across mentions of a "season pass" in comment sections it's always bad. I feel weird about this. I know that major AAA companys have turned this term from just a onetime payment on all season dlc to some evil thing. For example, I read something about Escape from Tarkov ( a Survival mmo that i'm looking forward to as of right now ) and it has a season pass. Now for me at least i'm not alarmed but it seems some people are already throwing up stuff like "ohh look EA 2.0" and i'm just like why? A season pass doesn't mean bad things to come. Honestly season pass depending on the person can be a good thing and a way to save money. Witcher 3 has a season pass, includes 2 paid expansion. Was great value when i picked it up since i goth both expansions for 20 dollars. Battle of Tarkov i'm sure will either include new areas (since it's a mmo), so that's good. Honestly seeing "season pass" is a good thing. What it can mean is that they're already planning on adding new content to the game once it's out. But sadly because of Activision with Destiny, people just assume it's a way to lock on disc content behind a pay wall. Or that the company is just greedy. Another bad example would be Battlefront and it's season pass which was just adding more maps splitting the playerbase. Call of duty does the same with using as a way for someone to get the map packs. And in general this is not consumer friendly since your essentially encouraging them to split up the community. Though on the other end of the spectrum you have Rainbow Six siege. Which has all free maps coming to it; the season pass only contains early access to operators and exclusive camo's for season pass users. The only thing i find wrong in that is just value proposition. So now to the subject why is "season pass" such a warning sign? before you just start shouting out hate, do a little research figure out what it includes and make your informed decision. Season pass doesn't have to be bad. In the case of the Witcher 3, and hopefully Escape from Tarkov a season pass can just be a easy way to get a discount on quality products. Essentially take the words "season pass" and think well are they locking on disc content behind a pay wall or are they actually just showing that they have interest to expand the game after release. Let me know what are your thoughts on the matter and maybe you can shed some more light on the apparent evil that is a season pass. -fox out - Edit / extension upon original thought while providing some different insights and possible ways to look at the subject. "I'm honestly very surprised and glad about the popularity of this post, and after reading everyone's response; i feel that i can relate to the different views over such an idea. Though I still have yet to see anyone really comment on the rest of my topic. What i'm talking about is the conclusion. That being the doing your own research. I still feel that we have yet to answer the core reason why i made this topic. That being the coherent hate that Season Pass gets in comments. Why would you shout your disdain. your mindless shouts of evil towards a notion in which you know nothing about. I understand being mad at destiny, battlefront, and any other game who's season pass is a joke and 100% not worth your time and money. In fact i'm still pissed about the destiny situation. The fact that activision has the audacity to rip a game apart and sell it for overpriced dlc. -shutters- \ but besides that. This post was to bring up the idea of not joining the hate train over a season pass and more so to sit back do your research then as an informed person make the decision to call the company out for the wrong it's doing to its consumers OR to praise them for their openness and respect for their continuation of content to a game you may love. For me this was true with the Witcher 3 and it's season pass. I did the research i saw what they were offering and I praised them for their open ended nature. As of now it was worth the extra 20 i spent on the game. I played the witcher 3 for another 20 hours cause of it. with the next expansion coming shortly i hope to return to the witcher 3 and add another 40 hours to my game time. Also you should think about WHO the season pass is for. As of COD and Battlefield it's for the people who are going to be playing that specific shooter for the rest of the year till the next game comes out. Now it's still horrible do to how consumer unfriendly it is to split the player base but still the season pass in those cases are meant for the people who want to spend the next 1000+ hours on their multiplayer game. And in that case honestly the season pass is more then worth it if you calculate how much you spent per hour of enjoyment you got out of the game. I sincerely think that if your going to spend mass amounts of time in a game then dlc is well worth it to you to put some more variety into the game. so as i just mentioned were going to run some calculations. now a season pass can go anywhere from 20-40 dollars. so lets calculate off the most recent bad example being battle fronts season pass and lets keep in mind that it's for the consumer that's going to be playing this game till the next battlefront or probably battlefield release. 50 dollars is the asking price of battlefronts season pass now lets take this and plug it into a formula. I personally use this as a way to justify to myself if it was worth the price i paid for the enjoyment i got. $/hours, simple i know but it's a good way to honestly see how much you paid and how much enjoyment you got out of it. with Battlefront lets say we take a look at a real fan of the new game and he has lets say 400 hours already logged into the game. If he's going to be playing this game for the next year we can safely assume that he would put in at least another 600 hours into the game so using 600 being the hours he spent playing the game with dlc added. 50/600 = .083. take that in now, so he spent 50 dollars and he's coming out to .08 cents is what hey paid for each hour of enjoyment. this is assuming the consumer loves the game and if they do, in most cases would also love new maps being added into the game (16 to be exact) now take it like this. use what i use as a formula it's not the best formula but it gets the point across. You also need to keep in mind who a season pass is for. For a lot of us we don't want them. Were not going to cit on Cod or Battlefield for the next year or two, so logically to us it's a bad deal. Because a lot of us play 100's of games. and if you're a pc gamer this is especially true. but for the person who doesnt play alot of different titles who loves this one game and every night when they get off work and have that little bit of spare time and they spend it on their favorite game. A season pass in a way is an easy, sometimes cheaper way to get the dlc without no hastle, and hopefully save a few bucks in the process. now i know this is not always true. I'm not trying to support the notion of the season pass. And I especially dislike season passes that include maps for a pvp game because it splits the community and in the long term will kill the game. but like i've said time and time again we should really think about a season pass, what it means, what it includes, who it's meant for. And what does that mean to the rest of the consumer base of said game. As some one said earlier that we've accepted that season passes are the norm. And honestly it's sad that is true. But there is a reason for it's creation there was a purpose and initially people really liked them otherwise they still wouldn't be here today. So what does that mean, it means they're not going away. I can promise you that, but we can help to make them better. make them more open. And you should remember that a season pass can be bought at any point in a games life cycle so honestly it's not a preorder. I bought battlefields 3 prem addition long after the last dlc had came out. and i guess this includes my thoughts on this. keep discussing if you want. I honestly think that we can go on for a while about this topic and what it means. I'm also going to include this comment into the original post since i really expanded upon the idea."
  6. ...but I'm one of the people who got the bad ending for The Witcher 3. And I'm one of the people who probably needs a therapist after receiving said ending. I still love TW3 and I'm going to replay it, but I decided to, while I was still feeling that way, to record how I was feeling about the ending. I wanted it to be a place where people who got the same ending could relate to what I was saying, but it's not like I'm big enough for that anyway lol. Still, I wanted to share it somewhere and I figured this would be a nice place since Angry Joe is a huge fan of the series like me, and so are some of you. Anyways, I've probably talked enough. I hope you enjoy! Video is 4 minutes long. Link: https://youtu.be/vdmga5hqp4M EDIT: (Can someone explain why my BBCode isn't working right now?)

  9. It's as glorious as I had imagined. An even more open world Witcher 2 with a much slicker combat mechanic, better movement since you can FINALLY jump and climb, and more natural character animations, which has a character that oddly enough reminds me of Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishment from last year. Looks great. I'm looking forward to this game already.
  10. According to an open letter from the developers, Ever since we started working on the third installment in The Witcher franchise, it has been our aim to produce a title that would take our 11 years of experience in creating RPGS and distill them into a quintessence, into a game that would effectively crown those years. At the same time, we have wanted The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to expand creative boundaries, set new benchmarks, develop the genre as a whole. Ultimately, you, the players, must get an unforgettable adventure to experience in a vast, open world – and that's most important. We've created a story that flows naturally, cinematically, rendered it in amazing sound and visuals, while preserving full freedom of choice – all for you. We knew this to be an ambitious plan, but believed we could achieve it by bringing together our team with its creative energies and current gaming platforms with their technical capabilities. A project this vast and complex would inevitably require special care in its final stages, manual fine-tuning of many details, thorough testing time and again. We recently reexamined what we had achieved thus far, and faced a choice about the game's final release date. The decision we made was difficult, thoroughly considered, and ultimately clear and obvious. We could have released the game towards the end of this year as we had initially planned. Yet we concluded that a few additional months will let us achieve the quality that will satisfy us, the quality gamers expect from us. Consequently, we have set the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for February 2015. Dear gamers - we know many of you would have liked to play The Witcher 3 sooner, as soon as possible, even. We're sorry to make you wait longer than you, or we, initially assumed you would. At the same time, we believe the game will prove to be worth the wait and meet the expectations you have of us. We believe The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be an exceptional RPG, one of the best, providing many hours of wonderful entertainment. Dear shareholders – we are aware of the responsibility that rests with us and thank you for the trust you have granted us thus far. We firmly believe that quality – more than any other factor – determines a game's success, and that the decision we have made is thus equally valid in business terms. The Board of CD PROJEKT S.A.

  11. So I searched this website that I usually use to buy PC games, and I found out that the Witcher 3 is available for only $39 on pre-order. http://www.g2play.net/store/The-Witcher-3-Wild-Hunt-Steam-Key.html It's probably only available in my country while you guys may have a different deal. I know how the site operates. Usually they'll sell the game at $45 when it's released later. Now it's only $39, but in some games the price will drop to around $20 later, but most of the time it'll be above $39. After much thinking and feedback, I'll just wait for GOG, or wait till the game is cheaper.
