What's worse is that those who spend a ridiculously amount of money towards their rig are going to be sorely disappointed and felt betrayed and if I were them I would ask for my money back. This looks like nothing more than to drive up graphics card sales. Nothing more. Even though it runs like horse crap on high end rigs. Welcome to PC gaming, you are all alpha testers for console gaming
Agreed. The game looks good but it's not the best looking game to date. There are some serious CDPR diehards that would argue otherwise. I just got done playing another hour and several times i felt like i was looking at TW2 again. No joke. It's becoming more and more apparent it's a port as well. Random turn in a room boom 20fps drop. I almost pre-ordered for full price, based on CDPR's rep alone. Then got back on the forum started seeing these threads and abandoned ship. I just want to honestly hear a response from them. Maybe PC gamer slams them for the shoddy marketing, and they way they handled the accusations against them from the community. I want to see someone call them out besides us.
If E3 wasn't a lie year after year i wouldn't care at all. If they showed us a screenshot and said "this is what we were able to come up with." i'd say okay, got it.

It looks exactly like the painted on grass except its painted hair on creatures and people
I'm almost thoroughly disappointed in Hairworks. I just don't get it. In some scenes it looks okay and in others it looks God awful. I know as many complained about the unnaturalness of Laura's hair in Tomb Raider those were rare occasions. Hair wise TW3 hasn't looked this good to me. This isn't even the best representation of TressFX, just realized i only had four or five screens on my profile. To me it looks much better anyhow, or consistently better should i say. Also the performance hit wasn't near what Gameworks is IIRC. Granted i haven't tried with just Geralt.
