This "consolites" is what pisses me off about the modern state of gaming. I am a PC gamer, and I demand the complexity and originality we had in PC games a long time ago. How long do we have to wait for the new Elite? The new Limbo of the Lost
First, the so-called "gameplay unburdened by repetitive activities" is totally unoriginal, and it was already done in Progress Quest
-- almost 10 years ago!
Second, what is this crap about "Mandolin style fighting"? This is a complete misrepresentation of the Musical Martial Arts! Give me a range of styles, from Brazilian Capoeira to the French "Jusqua-Cul" Flute stabbing techniques! Give me a complex, varied fighting system which takes into consideration Strength, Stamina, Constitution, Build, Height, Weight, Hair Texture, Sexual Orientation and Morale! (For example, certain "Flute Coups" not only hurt but also really lower the morale of your opponents.)
So this news from CD Projekt Red make me really sad. I mean, I have not really played the Witcher series yet -- no point in downloading a pirated version of a DRM-free game -- but I heard good things about it -- like, it had lots of hookers and explicit sex, just like real life.
Anyway, I hope Atari's consoles burn so we can get to PC gaming like in the old days. Fools!
