  • News: The Witcher 3 gets a graphics-boosting PC patch as furor erupts over visual quality

    One of the ugliest bits about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's launch has been the ongoing controversy about the "graphics downgrade" on PC. If you're not familiar, Kirk Hamilton's written a pretty excellent summary at Kotaku.

  • News: Nvidia offers Witcher 3 for free to Titan X users willing to be GeForce guinea pigs

    When you're dropping a cool grand on a graphics card, you're probably not too worried about spending a little extra cash to snag some games to play on it.
