Your hosts Greg Giddens and Neale Jarrett are here to take you on an audio journey of Xbox game impressions and opinions, bad jokes, Xbox news, worse jokes, guest interviews, really terrible jokes, and a fortnightly competitive challenge.
Beware of strong language, and awful, awful jokes.
In this episode Greg Giddens and Neale Jarrett discuss Farcry 4 and The Witcher 3. The pair also get another email topic about Gamertags , before a short discussion on recent Xbox news.
Bandai Namco have just released another awesome cinematic trailer for the The Witcher 3 – “A night to Remember” sees Geralt having to be at his best to survive the night, have a watch below and let us know what you think, one week to go!
The Witcher 3 is scheduled to launch February 24th, 2015 and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game, set in a fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. In The Witcher 3, you play as Geralt of Rivia, one of a dying caste of monster hunters, and embark on an epic journey in a war-ravaged world that will inevitably lead you to confront a foe darker than anything humanity has faced so far—the Wild Hunt.
One of thisisxbox.com’s most wanted games of this “new” generation.
Projekt RED and their PR team kindly sent us an email to inform the sad news that we will not be playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2014. As I continue to type with a little lump in my throat due to this being one of the most anticipated game releases on Xbox One for me – a snippet of information taken from a really long winded boring piece is below:
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.
So, we’ll just plod on and assume that this has nothing to do with the increasing popularity of The Elder Scrolls online which will hit the Xbox One later this year?
As one of our most anticipated titles for Xbox One in 2014 (we can barely contain our excitement) since the E3 reveal and the dev’s stated “there’s a lot of magic between the third Witcher and Xbox One” they wanted to usher the potential of the next generation with a new kind of RPG experience! As you can tell from the recent VGX trailer it’s shaping up to be one of the best looking games for 2014 so far!
This is one review we’re really looking forward to. Roll on 2014!
CD Projekt RED is proud to present The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt “Killing Monsters” cinematic trailer to the public for the first time, offering a thrilling glimpse into the morally ambiguous universe of Geralt of Rivia.
“Killing Monsters” portrays the cruel and gritty world of The Witcher and foreshadows the mature mood of the upcoming story-driven RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, set for release on Xbox One in 2014.
CD Projekt RED today during E3 unveiled its plans to release the genre-defining threequel of the critically acclaimed franchise – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Xbox One.
“We’re really thrilled to be able to participate in this industry-defining moment and be among such critically acclaimed developers” – said Adam Badowski, CD Projekt RED Studio Head.
“There’s a lot of magic between the third Witcher and Xbox One – we felt it since receiving development kits some time ago. A lot of effort on our side was made to usher the potential of the next generation with a new kind of RPG experience – for the first time we could open the world to the extent we wanted and tell the story with the flair it deserves. I’m confident that we’ll deliver something groundbreaking and I hope, based on what we’ve released today, you’re seeing this as well.”, Badowski added.
“Microsoft delivered some pretty amazing technology and we’re extremely excited that we’ll be able to show the full potential of REDengine 3. No boundaries, no technological limitations – the hardware’s pure power and our creative vision will produce some outstanding visuals and unparalleled gameplay.” Said John Mamais, Head of Production at CD Projekt RED.
Bolstering the initial Xbox One games line up, CD Projekt RED believes that it can help set the course for next-generation RPGs on the next generation games and entertainment system from Microsoft.
