Cyberpunk 2077 characters not restricted to English

Considering the broad range of places we visit when we jump into new game-spaces, the omission of most languages other than English is a strange one. American accents can be found everywhere from fantasy kingdoms to...

Birth of an ice giant: How monsters are made in Witcher 3

What I want from The Witcher 3 photo
What I want from The Witcher 3
by Patrick Hancock

What we already know about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt makes it sound really great. If the folks over at CD Projekt Red can pull off this and Cyberpunk 2077, they will seriously be a contender for the best development team.

There are a lot of changes in The Witcher 3 that we can expect. Open world, horses, and boats, oh my! So many potentially great ideas for an already great universe. Not every idea from the past games should be implemented in the finale, though.

Here's what I think should stay, and what should go to make the best Witcher sequel possible.
