    Oh man, CD projekt RED have announced witcher 3.
    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Geralt's a great protagonist. For a RPG where you dont get to choose your character, Geralt is about as good as you can have. I'm looking forward to seeing how his journey ends. Will be on PS4!

    Glad it'll be on PS4.

    Now, I only hope PS4 will be backward compatible, so I can trade in the PS3.

    An article in this months PC Gamer UK has a dev interview that makes for some tantalizing titbits for the game. Nothing we haven't seen before in an RPG, but it's good to move away from the hub / corridor maps of previous witchers and to an open world go anywhere and pickup quests map. The screenshots look very nice. Release date in 2014 so a looooonnng way to wait for this.

    Long Live The RPG!

    Wow... Next year is going to be great! Especially for RPGs.

    Elder Scrolls Online
    Witcher 3
    Dragon Age: Inquisition
    Diablo 3 coming to consoles, which I plan to finally pick up.

    am I leaving anything out?

    Charles Dance aka Tywin Lannister is confirmed as the Emperor. Probably not the only GoT actor to voice a role i'd wager.

    What a bloody good deal for pre-orders imho. Even though i've vowed to never pre-order again, i think i may break the vow with this one.

    You can thank Namco Bandai for the price hike.

    Well that price hike has stopped me pre-ordering. We'll see what deals happen in the coming 8 months.

    You can get a steam redeemable key through g2play for $49.15 AUD which seems pretty reasonable. I'm sure there's plenty of other sites that will offer similar prices.

    There's so many ways around regional pricing on PC I wouldn't worry about it.

    big monsters
