Have you downloaded these latest updates yet? Still playing The Witcher 3 a year after its release on the Nintendo Switch? Tell us in the comments below.
Haven’t gotta around to playing Witcher 3 on Switch (or any where else), really need to pick this game up...
Wow, it's a minor update. That's worth a whole article.
other than the cloud saves, that's pretty cool.
Cloud save on Thronebreaker... That's nice.
I prefer articles about minor updates than articles of dataminers, hackers and what an unknown person said on Twitter.
Witcher 3 ruined BOTW for me, as the world feels quite empty compared to TW3. Both great games though.
It’ll be that next-gen update to add ray tracing and 8K support 😉
Amazing game gets continued support, sweeeeet! CDPR and Sabre, y’all have mine and my wallet’s attention for eternity.
@Cosats how nice for you. Just read articles about minor updates then and shut up. Lmao
Currently playing the Switch version. Its super impressive playing a game on this scale on a portable system. Sabre really hit it out of the park with this port. 👍
@ozwally Witcher 3 is a actually a purchase I regret. I would've been better off just reading the book. The game itself is too overwhelming. Breath of the wild is more like a breath of fresh air.
@Supadav03 it’s pretty great and the controls feel natural on the joy cons - try and cop a physical the load times are significantly better
@ozwally BOTW was a much better designed game though. The Witcher 3 had really awesome lore.. possibly the best of any game ever. but didn’t really come together as a whole.
BOTW was primarily exploration-focused.
Stability improvements? The game is already rock solid. What is there to improve?
I own it on Switch, PS4, XB1, and PC. Pretty sure PC I got for free somehow, and XB1 dirt cheap.
Anyway, the furthest I've made it in the game is completing White Orchard and slaying the Griffin. One day...one day I may finish or at least halfway finish the Witcher 3. 🤪
@ozwally For me BOTW was better, but I did play it first so that may have something to do with it.
This must be secretly the ps5 patch
Friggin' amazing game. Just finished Witcher 2 on 360. Already put in 200 hours on the W3 Switch version, now can't wait to see how my Witcher 2 decisions effect Witcher 3 on Xone.
@NotoriousWhiz @Kang81 I get that completely, I get anxiety when starting games of that size - Witcher 3, Skyrim, Fallout etc... usually takes me awhile to fully get into em, and usually I don’t beat the games until years after release. Case in point, W3, I own it on PS4, XB1, and also Switch. It wasn’t until early this year that I finally sat down and completed it and that was on Switch.
@Coach_A Awesome news, RoR1&2 are on my wishlist to get at some point. I love the premise - seemed like borderlands x roguelite.
I've finally finished the main story a couple months ago and I'm going through DLC one. Apparently DLC two is as big as a whole new game. I might never finish it! Hahah being an adult sucks
I was playing it today, I was running around in Novigrad when suddenly the game crashed and closed. I then connected the switch to the internet and the update downloaded, hopefully it fixes whatever bug made it crash.
"Wow, it's a minor update. That's worth a whole article."
I'll never understand why some people have to leave such rude comments.
@dux Hearts of Stone is a great and large story, but mainly within the main map of Witcher 3. Blood and Wine adds an area about as big as Skellige, maybe bigger, with an epic and huge story. About 90% main game, and 100% both DLCs took me 2 months I think... maybe a bit longer. Father of 2 here so I get, maybe 2 hours a night to game if I’m lucky....
Started playing a few days ago. Had one time where the game completely froze and forced me to close it and last night I got stuck on the side of a house and had to reload my last save. Good to see they're still intent on fixing the bugs. Could probably never get rid of them all in a game of this scale.
@ozwally BotW is supposed to be post apocalyptic so it kinda makes sense. A lot of the population died off and many social gathering sites were either completely destroyed or heavily ruined.
@BenAV I noticed my horse used to get stuck at bridge entrances. Other than that haven't noticed too many bugs. I'm only 40 hrs in though so I'm sure I will see a few more.
@Kang81 You really should. Once you get to the city of Novigrad the game truly begins to open up.
Also the Baron quest is one of the best side story threads in all RPGs
I've had the game installed on my PC since launch day and I'm still not done. It's a very large and intimidating game and must be the only game you focus on for weeks. I keep getting distracted by other releases.
OwO? Notices stability update
Slowly grinding through the game. Definitely lots of lag but it still looks very good for a handheld port. Looks a bit ugly docked but it's still really fun to play! (Especially when you skip all the fetch quests)
@ozwally How so? Breath of the Wild is a different setting.
Hyrule was almost completely wiped out by the Calamity, so all that remains are a few settlements here and there.
After experimenting with my Switch and deleting all my save files I must find the time to start this game again.
The issue I have now with BOTW is riding through large areas with nothing there, in Witcher there’s almost always something happening and so many small details.
Something that stood out in my mind from Witcher was a man carrying corpses with the plague in his cart I met on the road. I burned his cart due to plague however he said he was immune.
Weeks later I was randomly exploring and came across him in a field trying to get attacked, he had come down with the plague and wanted to die. Just small things like this really enhances it for me.
The main problem as mentioned is there’s probably too much to do and it isn’t cohesive, I mean I’m way overlevelled for skellige but I just had to see everything in Velen (and still haven’t)
@Bizzyb You are right with this, it does feel correct. I just really wish I’d completed BOTW before TW3. Never mind, BOTW 2 to look forward to
My Lord, loved this game on the Switch and on the go. Want to get back to it after Galaxy.
@NotoriousWhiz I find BOTW too simple. The story is really thin and the the lack of dialogue makes it somewhat boring. It's a good game but IMO Witcher 3 is a much better game. I think it's a lot "deeper" than BOTW.
@Cosats "Me, too, kid. Me, too"(c)
I have yet to play this game, my switch copy is sitting on my shelf since not long after it was launched. So many games with so little time.
@ozwally I love both games too. The only thing that really disappointed me in BOTW was the DLC. Compared to the Witcher, with both hearts of stone and blood and wine being amazing additions to the main game of the TW3.
Keep hearing good things about this, but do I really want to add another >50hr game to my backlog? Seems to be on Gamepass at the moment, so if I manage to pick up a SeriesX before it's gone I might give it a go.
I absolutely loved The Witcher 3 on PS4, but never played the DLC so plan on picking up the Switch version at some point to play the game again plus DLC. Is Thronebreaker worth playing though? Had it on my wish list for a while but never pulled the trigger yet. I know it's had good reviews. Anyone here vouch for it?
@Supadav03 I have it for a year and still haven't played it, only unsealed it few weeks back to get points for a sale on the Eshop because I didn't had enough points/credit😂😂😂. But i feel ashamed though😅
Game not for me have tried for several hours several times. And also I am not a fan that this keeps getting updates, I thought it was supposed to be complete but there we go xx
I think the takeaway for me from botw and tw3 is play botw first if you are wanting to play both,
I got botw with my switch and loved it, left it for a year after freeing first beast, played tw3, and how now come back, just freed the second beast and on the 3rd now and I’ve dropped it out of boredom. I’ll definately be back and need to nail it before Age of Calamity/BotW 2 as I think they will build on this foundation
@Dm9982 I'd say you're VERY lucky, I mainly play weekends when my boyfriend is doing something, otherwise we're watching something together. I really like the story, but it's definitely a long game.
@dux Eh I force myself to stay up late to game, usually till 2am. I get about 5 hours of sleep on average a night. Lol!
@Dm9982 ror2 is awesome! Especially with the artifacts
I truly love this game and happy that I got it on Switch. It plays really well and for a game of this size, having it on the go helps a LOT. I’m able to play it much more often than if I was locked to my tv.
Still haven't finished the Blood and Wine part, the grind is a bit too steep. Found myself dying so many times when I didn't have any problems for the rest of the game.
@ozwally I have some issues with BotW as a whole but the world isn't one of them, it feels like a proper post apocalypse Hyrule to me.
@Cosats Good for you and the 28 other sheep who like your comment lol I like all articles because I understand it is useful to read the whole book.
@NotoriousWhiz Same here, I regretted the purchase, but for different reasons. I finally bought it hen I found it for €40 physical, after long consideration due to a limited budget, and that very same day one of my dogs chewed the cartridge very much beyond repair. Apparently all the bad taste in the world couldn't keep a dog from eating it. Now I have a €40 box with a map and all that good stuff of a game I don't have and won't purchase a second time. And three dogs I still love more than anything or anyone, each of them.
