hi guys, I want to buy witcher 3 but something is holding me not to. I have red all the comment and all they say is this game is the best of all games they played... is it worth it to buy for 59$? or is there other game on steam you might want to recommend? that will last 3-6months playing it and I will still enjoy it? btw, my unit is g751JT-DB73

You won't be able to play at maximum settings with a JT but High will be good.
To be honest, the game looks great at any graphics level. Just go for High and push things up 1 by 1 till you get it pretty enough while still being able to punch over 45fps.
I'd say the game is worth the asking price, especially if you have played the previous 2 games.

Witcher 3 is one of the most graphically demanding games, which is one of the reasons I recently bough ROG laptop.

Previously, I used Dell Inspiron 15R SE with Radeon 7730M, but it just could not cut it to play Witcher 3 even in 1024x768.

Yes, I bought ROG in order to play Witcher 3. It is a that good of a game.

Of course, in my case that is weaker G551JW, with GTX 960M, which I use to play on around medium settings in 1600x900.
But that is what I can get, since I need more mobility of 15" laptop, then performance of 17" models.

If you haven't played the first two, then at least read a synopsis of the first and play through the second before playing the third.

Or, you could read the books - that would be faster and much more comprehensive. :P I admit: I say this as a pretty hardcore fan of the series, although I played the first game before I knew about the books.

Seriously, though; you will most likely enjoy Witcher 3 if you enjoy solo RPG games. Also, you might want to play it with a controller - I enjoyed my second playthrough MUCH more because of the controller, since the game control mechanics are way simpler than the previous games.

Wait for the big xmas steam sale and get all 3 with a massive discount. That and dark souls 1 and 2. You'll have enough gaming to last u through till the summer.
thats what im gonna do.

A couple of weeks back im sure the witcher franchise had a massive 70% discount. I missed that but I know its only a matter of time.

A definite YES. Before I bought my ROG I played it with rather bad graphics but it was still worth it and now even more. It's by far the best Action/RPG I played, and I played enough them. I can only recommend Witcher 3 for everyone and it's totally worth the price, but you can also wait for sales.
sorry for my english

Just buy it. I am not RPG fan (I prefer FPS and RTS), but still I have played the main story for 1 month. This game is HUGE, graphics, level/localizations design and architecture is astonishing, plot and dialogs are superb. NOTHING at the plot is simple and predictive. Each main quest and even subquests are original, nothing is repeated (maybe except the horse racings for some money or trophies). Most of NPC you are conversating with are just lying to you and you must learn/fight/guess where is the truth... sometimes you will have to wait till the end. The game has approx. 37 different endings combinations - you can even die at the end due to wrong decisions. And it is so natural that you would never notice that there is so many endings if not played the gmae again. Several main quest plots are SICK and will "wash" your brain for good. The main plots can end differently depending on your actions. Lot of decisions will impact future results at many levels. You can decide who can live or die, this will impact the plot... can make it harder... or even more harder. TRY. :)

Witcher 3 ran fine on my G751JY although had some lockups/freezes but disregarding this the game is one heck of a ride and totally worth the money. I think actually the game runs better now as the developer released several patches and keeps fixing the game post release. They are also about to release a major DLC for the game to give you even more gameplay. Go and grab (if you got time to invest cause the game takes probably 60-100 hrs to complete...)!

Witchers 3 Runs At 20-30 fps in ASUS ROG JT With NVIDIA Hair Works On
Witchers 3 Runs at 30-40 FPS in ASUS ROG JT with NVIDIA Hair Works Off

Witchers 3 Runs at 30-40 FPS In ASUS ROG JY With NVIDIA Hair Works On
Witchers 3 Runs at 40-50 FPS in ASUS ROG JY With NVIDIA Hair Works Off


The difference between ASUS ROG JT And JY In Witchers 3, is 10 FPS Average.
You can turn one setting off to get the same performance as JY Like Hair works.

Saying that JT Can't Run Witchers 3 At Decent framerate is misleading because its only 10 frames less than JY. If you have JT And don't see the difference between hairworks on vs off I would suggest turning hair works off (To get JY 30-40 FPS Preformence) another setting like shadow might give even more fps boost, both ASUS ROG JY and JT Are not capable of achieving 50-60 FPS By default ultra preset.

If any game is worth 60 bucks, it's Witcher 3. I put in 100+ hours. And hairworks and idiotic anti-aliasing and aniso etc can be turned off and you won't see the difference. Just play on high, it'll be the ****.

Minimum overclocking will yield 35-45fps on a JT with ultra/hairworks x8AA on. I know I posted a screenshot of mine averaging 47.

Any ROG laptop with GTX 850M and upwards can "run" the Witcher 3 with playable framerate, it is just question of details and resolution.

Also I never even noticed the difference between Ultra and Low shadows. Exempt that Low gives much better performance.

Hairworks off is also great performance boost, although they added hairworks setting tweaks in recent patches, so it can be fine tuned instead of just turned on or off.

What I dislike with hairworks is that it was so selectively used. Some monsters use it, Geralt hair and Roach use it, yet all other NPC hair is not using hairworks. Just lame...

Also Foliage Distance reduction from Ultra to High gives great boost in performance, without really affecting immersion.

I asked the same question on Twitter (for a retail copy instead of Steam) yesterday, and the response was a unanimous yes. Seems like Witcher 3 is getting the same type of response that Skyrim got when first released, which is something very few games get in terms of overwhelmingly positive reviews. The retail version also gives you several DLC components - I'm not sure if the Steam version does as well.

You'd have to ask Steam about that. Could be related to taxes or some sort of tariff or levy on digital downloads that doesn't affect boxed copies.
