There are a lot of glitches and bugs in games that can easily take a player by surprise. Some of these glitches, bugs and hang-ups are game-breaking, resulting in corrupted saved games or locking up; other glitches provide a bit of entertainment and laughs.
One of the recent glitches discovered for CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3 is a dancing guard. What makes it newsworthy? Because he appears to think he's one of the sexiest guards alive. Check out the video below from grigorpopov [via VG247].
The video is pretty hilarious, and it looks like it may be a bug attached to the location of the individual. Notice that when another guy is in the guard's place he's doing the animation as well. I don't know how the Red Engine works, but it looks like the map designer/editor tagged an area to play an animation for the NPC in that location and in result the guard was in place of where one of the female dancers were supposed to be. I imagine the purpose of playing an animation in that area would allow them to cycle through female NPCs so they do the dance whenever you're in the area but it could be a different NPC each time. Only this time, it was a guard.
Chalk up another bug for CD Projekt Red's to-do list.
To be fair, though, The Witcher 3 has been receiving a lot of regular patches to fix many of the broken and buggy experiences in the game. Following the big fallout over the Nvidia Gameworks scandal, CD Projekt Red has been very vigilant and open with the community about how they plan on going about fixing up the game and ensuring that it runs optimally on a variety of computers and on the home consoles.
Funnily enough, the gaming community have lobbed a lot of their complaints about the buggy release of The Witcher 3 on Warner Bros, since they were the North American publishers. Warner Bros has also been on the receiving end of a lot of negative press for publishing Mortal Kombat X, which was also poorly optimized for PC, and they received lots of hate for the barely functioning Batman: Arkham Knight on a variety of PCs.
In the case of The Witcher 3, a lot of gamers are taking some of the bugs and glitches in stride since they can at least purchase and play the game unlike Batman: Arkham Knight. In the VG247 comment section someone also shared a rather hilarious bug of a guy performing a rather ridiculous looking stride through the town. Check it out below.
The Witcher 3 is available right now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Many of the major bugs and glitches have been fixed, but if you still want to take a gander at a guard getting jiggy with it and showing off his sexy side, you can enjoy it while it lasts.
