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.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
