So I have not played the original Witcher or Witcher 2 and my older consoles are in storage pending a move. Is it worth jumping right into 3 or would I be missing too much plot?

2's good framing for 3, but not NECESSARY. If you have the time, it's still a fun game. 3 is head-and-shoulders best in series, though.

Call me crazy but I kind of prefer the smaller scale of witcher 2. Why must every RPG be trying to emulate skyrim, theres only so much running around I can take. And this is from someone who loves skyrim/fallout.

I don't own the game yet (not sure I can run it well enough), but I have watched a friend of mine play it on the PS4 and it was actually fun to spectate because of how story driven it is.
At times it was easy to forget it's a game.
Never really felt like he had to do a lot of running around to find anything of interest.

Okay. Real talk.

Never before have I actually felt physically ill while playing a game. I had this game pre-ordered way long ago but didn't install because apparently my PC specs weren't good enough but decided to install it anyways just for the what the hells. Turns out the game runs on the lowest settings. But back on topic, every time I use Geralt's witcher sensing thingy I feel nauseated. The closest thing to happen was getting a headache like 15 years ago while playing Wolfenstein.

Real talk? Do you mean serious talk? (I feel old and grumpy) :P

It could be the color shift that causes your nausea. Usually its a low field of view value thats at fault for causing nausea while playing video games.

I shelved it for the same reason, I haven't felt this ill playing a game since I tried Half Life 2. There's a hidden setting you could try, which removes the blur effect in Witcher senses mode, unfortunately it doesn't do anything about the zoom though.

Open The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\bin\config\base\gameplay.ini and change MotionSicknessFocusMode=false to true.

I'm going to try the game again when patch 1.7 is released, hopefully the new movement mode will make the game feel less horrible to move around in.

Yeah I looked online and turned off the blurring and it has been fine since. About 75 hours into the game with still so much more to do. First expansion coming out in October.

Expansion DLC is out! 25 bucks for the next two expansion dlcs measured at roughly 30 hours of play time. I insta-bought it so hard.


Edit: I noticed that the price point is 25 globally. Meaning people in Europe are paying a hella lot more than Canadians are. The euro equivalent of 25 dollars Canadian is roughly 17.5 euros. You would think that CD Projekt RED would be more conscientious of that being a developer situated in Poland and all.
