Witcher 1 was really stupid I figured out who azar javed was but it wouldn't let me expose him bcoz I didn't go to the cemetery so I had to reload old save and lost 6 hours of gameplay.

I hope they fix crap like this in witcher 2

If I'm not mistaken it supports eyefinity and nvidia 3d.

So Glad I preordered this game as soon as it was available, loved the first one can't wait for this one. Some of the locations in this game just look and feel original/ new/ "fresh" and it really is a welcomed change from all the games we've been getting lately.

what sets the witcher apart from other games like fable,dragon age, oblivion, and just about every RPG recently released. The story, it absolutely destroys every single one of those in terms of story.

There are choices for your actions, and you choices are not always spelled out for you. And they are never clear what exactly is going to happen. Because that is how the world truely is. Often you are doing things and dont realise that it was choice you made. They dont hold your hand and say do this, for this outcome, do this for that one, and if you want this to happen do this. So many parts of the story and quests intersect each other and cause different things to occur just because you made a choice 10 hours ago on something completely not related, but because its an actual world, those people still continue on with their life, and those actions also ripple through the world.

This article from RPS needs to be read by everyone interested in the witcher.

Quote:
But there’s two phases to every choice here, too. First, there’s the decision, and then, there’s the consequence. In many other games, that consequence takes place soon after the decision, so that it can give you some good or bad points and push you a little more up whichever end of the binary spectrum you’ve decided to pursue. It’s also easier if, in terms of storytelling, you get to connect that consequence with your action before you get about it. The problem with that, and something that The Witcher sidesteps so elegantly, is that the player almost always has the option to revoke that choice that they’ve just made with a minimum of retreading.


You can just quicksave before the conversation, and then reload if you don’t like the outcome. Like a spoilt child, you get to have your way, even if you **** up. You’re a beautiful and delicate flower, and the mere chance that you might be presented with something that disagrees with you isn’t something that can be tolerated. Instead you need to have that reassuring hand on your shoulder that lets you back out of any decision that you’ve made, right after you’ve made it.

In The Witcher, that hand is a push, and it’s forcing you to remain in an anxious limbo, unable to see what the consequences of your choice are, how big and how powerful an impact crater the asteroid of your decision is going to leave. It might be an hour later, it could be something that doesn’t even show up until next chapter. But it’s going to come back, and it’s going to have an impact.

This is The Witcher taking away your crutches. It’s pulling the stabilisers off your bike, and letting you careen down the narrow lane of your decision making. It’s letting you know that you can make mistakes, you can **** up, and the game will carry on. Sure, sometimes things will happen that you might not have wanted, but that’s how a good story happens. If everything you do turns out great, where the hell is the jeopardy that makes the story interesting? It’s precisely by piling problems onto a protagonist, and having them face worse problems no matter how well they deal with the situation, that the best stories thrive.


The smartest thing The Witcher does, however, isn’t the big choices like the one outlined above. Instead it’s the little things, the things that don’t even look like choices, but can have ramifications. Things like being told by a friend to do some research into forensic sciences before you do an autopsy. In another game, that would be a requirement, with the option to do the autopsy completely unavailable until you’d done the required reading. Here? Here you can do the autopsy whenever, and it’s framed in such a way that, once it’s done, you’re pretty much certain your results were correct. Who needs books, right?

Download the enhanced edition for free, and a lot of those bugs will be gone.

I am still looking for that one game to pull me away from the FPS scene. I tried fallout 3, Deadspace 2, and both DA Origins games. I'm getting sick of spending my money on games that I know I should like, but just can't seem to get past the first few days before getting bored with it. Maybe this one will do. I dunno.
