Comment Re:ZeroPunctuation review of The Witcher (Score 1) 23

ZeroPunctuation is certainly enjoyable and he also manages to be incredibly insightful in comparison to the majority of video games reviewers.
Maybe they are so insular that they completely miss glaring flaws that apply to the majority of games. Even if he is just ranting about his own personal feelings towards a game, I have a better idea of whether I want it or not based on that than a formal review. He would have saved me buying Prince of Persia if only he'd put his review up sooner.

Regarding The Witcher port, in the words of Command and Conquer:
On Hold. Cancelled.

I couldn't agree more, you should never be made to have to fight the controls rather than the game. The claims of the controls being awkward in order to increase tension is true to an extent but I don't want to play a game like that.
There are other ways of manufacturing fear and tension without bad controls.
I think a better approach to not being able to move and shoot would be to allow you to but penalise with reduced accuracy.

They said the same thing about the DS when that came out. It was meant to be the "third pillar" along with the GBA and the GameCube.
I don't see a new version of the GBA being released as everyone moved onto the DS.
Expect the same, the DS will eventually vanish which is a shame because the GBA slot was quite useful
