The Most Frustrating Glitches In The Witcher 3

There are few games as huge and detailed as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But like most games of this scale, it’s experiencing quite a few bugs after its release. Most of them are harmless, and some are downright hilarious. But there are some that can seriously downgrade the experience of playing the game, or even break the game completely. To CD Projekt RED’s credit, they seem to be hard at work trying to fix them all. Here’s a list of some of the worst glitches to watch out for, along with any fixes that might help.

EDIT: All of these glitches are fixed in patch 1.05.

1. No Exp gain

This glitch is actually a new one, brought about by one of the patches that was supposed to fix these sorts of problems. This glitch prevents players from gaining any experience from completing quests whose recommended level is higher or lower than the player’s by six. CD Projekt RED have acknowledged the glitch and say they’re looking into it. With the regular release of patches we’ve seen since the game’s launch, it’s likely to be fixed soon. For now, just avoid doing quests that are six levels higher or lower than you.

2. Geralt can’t mount Roach

This one isn’t exactly game breaking, but it’s downright annoying. Roach may be unwieldy at times, but when it comes to reaching a quest marker that’s miles away from the nearest sign post, having Roach gallop you across the countryside can save a ton of time. This glitch isn’t very common, but plenty of players have experienced it so far. Simply put, whenever Geralt stands near Roach, the option to mount no longer appears. There have been reports that winning the horse races in Velen and equipping the saddle you get as a prize can fix this. Otherwise, it’s up to CD Projekt RED.

3. Pyres Of Novigrad bug

This glitch is game-breaking, and has already led many players to tears. It relates to the Pyres Of Novigrad main quest, so if you’re not up to that yet, beware of spoilers. Basically, Geralt will be in the sewers and will need to use his Witcher Senses to open a secret passage. His senses show a brick, highlighted in red, that acts as the button to open the door. But this glitch prevents Geralt from being able to push the brick, meaning the door can’t be opened and the quest can’t be completed. As this is a main quest, it renders the entire game’s main storyline inaccessible. Some who experienced this bug have had luck with reloading earlier saves, but others did not. This is a serious bug, so we hope CD Projekt RED deals with it soon.

The director of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is making a final plea to content creators regarding spoilers

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is on the horizon, with our review already available. There’s just one week left until the game’s official release on February 29th, exclusively on PS5. This highly anticipated sequel to Remake, based on one of the most beloved video game stories, is best experienced without any spoilers, according to creative director Tetsuya Nomura.

On Twitter, Nomura made a final request for players and content creators to avoid spoiling the game for others, especially on social media and video-sharing platforms, where spoilers can spread rapidly. Naturally, there’s a specific moment that everyone is eagerly anticipating to see how it will compare to the 1997 original, and it’s bound to be quite chaotic on launch day. Nevertheless, Nomura still holds onto a glimmer of hope for humanity and has made a seemingly impossible request for content creators to exercise a degree of restraint.

It’s important to remember to include spoiler warnings when sharing content related to the game’s story on social media and video-sharing sites to avoid spoiling the experience for others. I would greatly appreciate it if you could avoid using scenes from important parts of the story in your video thumbnails.

Nomura points out that the developers intentionally did not limit the recording and sharing features of the PS5 for any aspect of the game. They believe players should have the freedom to share and discuss their favorite gameplay moments. It remains to be seen if that trust was justified.

Do you think players and content creators will follow Nomura’s request and minimize spoilers? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Xbox may want to become more acquainted with the Platinum Trophies on PS5 and PS4

Obsidian’s first Xbox game, Pentiment, a historical adventure, is now available on the PS5 and PS4. From what we’ve seen, this port of a highly popular game seems to be solid, and we aim to provide you with a review soon. Meanwhile, one aspect caught our attention regarding the conversion that Microsoft may need to address in the future.

Pentiment’s list of Trophies perfectly mirrors its Xbox Achievements, featuring identical descriptions, titles, and icons. There is a slight variation between the two versions: PlayStation offers 42 trophies to unlock, whereas Xbox provides 41 achievements to earn. The distinction lies in the Platinum Trophy, which is awarded once you have collected all the other trinkets in the set.

Since it’s not included in the original game, the developer has not named the trophy, so it appears as ‘PlatinumTrophy’ in the list. This has already generated amusement among Trophy enthusiast communities. “They chose such a basic name for the Platinum Trophy and somehow still messed it up,” a fan expressed.

This issue is quite insignificant in the bigger picture and could likely be fixed with a quick update or patch. As Microsoft gains more experience with PlayStation development, we hope their command of the Trophy system will improve. After all, those platinums are difficult to earn and deserve a more memorable name.

Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon have been excluded from the final roster of WWE 22K24

2K Sports unveiled the complete roster for the upcoming WWE 2K24, featuring more than 204 playable superstars, including 70 Legends who are no longer part of the main rosters, along with eight managers. However, fans were quick to point out the absence of some notable names from the list: 7-time WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and former WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. Lesnar was previously excluded from the Forty Years of WrestleMania edition.

Following accusations of sex trafficking against McMahon by a former WWE employee, a report from the Wall Street Journal brought the issue to light. Although Lesnar’s name was not directly mentioned in the proceedings, insiders informed the WSJ that he was the unidentified WWE champion in question. McMahon refuted the allegations but stepped down as WWE CEO the day following the federal lawsuit.

Nonetheless, Lesnar and McMahon will still be present in the game. GameSpot has reported that the Lesnar vs. Undertaker match from WrestleMania 30 may be included in Showcase mode. It is speculated that another match already confirmed for Showcase mode (Stone Cold vs. The Rock, WrestleMania 17) will probably include an appearance from McMahon as well.

WWE 2K24 will be available for purchase on March 8th for PS5 and PS4, or March 5th for those interested in the Deluxe or WrestleMania editions.
