Just in time to get hyped up about The Witcher 3, Steam's selling off the first sequel at a 66 per cent discount this weekend.

It's not often I respect my enemies in a game — how could I? They're just a target. A bundle of HP. An obstacle. Something to conquer. But when you're a legendary Witcher, your (equally legendary) enemies demand respect. Monster hunting is not for the reckless; approaching creatures in the world of Temeria with an unsheathed sword can only get you so far.
As a professional courtesy, developers often don't point out the wrongdoings of games they didn't make. They really should though, because when they do, it's incredibly insightful. In an interview with Game Informer, two devs from CD Projekt (The Witcher) take a critical eye to the likes of Skyrim and Fallout: New Vegas.
The recent launch of Path Of Exile's open beta — a new hack and slash action RPG known especially for its enormous skill tree, as you can see in the pic above — inspired us to collect some of the best looking skill and research trees spanning a variety of genres.

The Witcher 2 is getting mod tools. We previously knew...that fact and that fact alone, but at GamesCom last week developers CD Projekt showed off the game's upcoming REDkit, and it's looking terrific.
