I didn't say that those punishments were fair, just that people keep doing this stuff then getting off scot-free thus allowing developers to keep doing this stuff.

Everything from cars to food to drinks to clothes to makeup, it's all airbrushed, computer generated, modeled, or faked. How much of it do you complain about on a daily basis? None, right? So why do you have your panties all bunched up in a tight wad over this? Did one of the developers come to your house and kick your puppy?

Major difference though bud. McDonalds doesn't sit there and tell people constantly that their burgers look perfect all the time and to not expect any different. CDPR however was constantly on the "there is no downgrade!" train then when it comes out what do we get? Massive downgrades. Like, noticeably worse in nearly every way.

It's false advertising. At least with McDonalds you can get a perfect looking burger. That's not the case with this game. Multiple stuff has been cut out that we'll never see again.

Where is the false advertising? Where is this fraud?



I don't see you complaining about this. Have you ever complained about your burger or taco not looking exactly like the picture as much as your complaining about a video game?



Here's a simple solution for you. If it bothers you that much, don't buy the game, don't play the game. There. Easy wasn't it?

It's actually against the law to misrepresent a product if it is materially different. The big mac is still a big mac, even if it doesn't look exactly liek the picture because it's put together by HAND. If the Witcher 3 was advertised with X set of textures/IP and is delivered with a lowered set of textures/IP, that is fraud technically. It works the same as any other product, even a big mac. And in that case McD's would have to change the material makeup of the big mac, which they know better than to mess with the FDA.

I don’t go to McDonald’s (Burger king/Tim Horton’s/Starbucks/Subway/etc. etc. etc.)
I don't have a puppy.
I am a strong proponent against advertising, and I have multiple posts on this forum written against modern advertising practices (which also go against advertising as a source of information about a product, but instead go for painting an unrealistic image of said product).

I don't have a quarrel with games that have bad graphics. I like Longest Journey, after all.

My quarrel is: illegal action followed by no legal consequences.

So maybe I was wrong, I have a puppy. Yes, the law is my puppy, I treat it like my puppy, I nurture it and grow it and care for it. And this scumbag came and kicked it and broke its paw.

Wish I knew which shadow settings in the tweaking guide are coming into play here. The examples above (in the guide) are talking about or showing foliage, but it is clearly affecting non-foliage:

So has everyone seen nVidia Witcher 3 Guide? You can tweak the game's graphics to a point where it will barely run on your PC. Happy now? Whatever else they could have added would be IMPOSSIBLE to run on 99% of systems.

Define "Massive downgrade" in legal terms that could be applied equally to any business that is not biased by your own personal opinion.

Can I now sue you for making false claims? You absolutely cannot get a "perfect looking burger" from McDonald's because they don't use real food in their advertisements and the real food doesn't look anything like the plastic models they make for pictures and commercials.

So you're lying. You're committing fraud. You should be fined, or thrown in jail, and punished severely for telling lies to people. You're dishonest and you shouldn't be allowed to get away with it at any level. There are laws, and you're breaking them by making false claims in defense of a product's advertising.


See how grownup that sounds? That's precisely how you come across to everyone else. Think that makes you look justified, or does it just look like the ramblings of an idiot?
