Assassin's Creed is a lot 'lighter', simpler and mainstream, though. The Witcher takes a little effort to get into.

Say what you want, Borderlands 2 was an amazing game. DLC or not.

Because free content is better? Unless you're saying Witcher is a weaknard game and people only say it's good because it gets free DLC's and dev support and no DRM?

The fact that CDProject is giving them for free it's admirable. Even more would be if all the content came in the disc, when you buy the game.

Oh yeah, for sure. Free is awesome and all, but if somebody is going to sit there and tell me if Call of Duty had free DLC it would be a better game...no. If one would sit there and tell me that if Valve games had PAID DLC they would be bad games...no.

The logic isn't there:P

Free DLC does not a good game make. A good game is what a good game make. smile.gif

Wow. Just wow. This forum is always a treat with people putting words in your mouth. I said nothing of the sort. Not sure HOW you drew that conclusion from ANYTHING I said.

Being in Australia and its history of baring grown adults thing they might enjoy, GoG copies of Witcher 1 and 2 also allowed me to get the complete game without parts cut out to the whims of some oldfart on a censorship board.

Same here, I will pre order two physical copies once it's possible. CD Projekt Red are one of the very few companies I will support financially and they deserve my hard earned money for respecting consumer rights.

If at all possible go out and get a physical copy, soo much better their standard edition of the game is a special edition with a lot of extras for the price of a regular game.


Also poor attempt at the beginning of the thread implying free DLC makes a good game. Not at all the case, CDR know how to treat their customers free DLC or not. The Witcher games are a lot better than the crap EA having been putting out in the past few years.

Good for them (and consumers). That's so rare in the industry. Actually I've never heard of a company doing something like this. Stuff like this I believe greatly, GREATLY, reduces pirating. Because I know many people who torrent out of spite because of bad business practices. Too bad I could not get into the game. I got witcher 2 but the combat was not good. I also did not like the fact that I had to use potions and stuff before a fight. But I know that if I give it time I would enjoy the heck out of it. One day I will try again but I just got Civ V and from what people tell me I wont be leaving my seat for a couple of days.

Crytek should take a hint. This game sounds better and better every day.

This actually makes business sense. Ever since I've filled up my Steam library with an insane backlog from the seasonal sales, I've just been waiting for steeply marked down GOTY editions so I don't have to purchase the DLC separately.

With how awesome CDPR is, I may actually buy the game for full price at launch to support what is easily one of the top devs out there. They're a shining example in a world awash with palpable greed and obvious disconnect from consumers.

Support these folks guys. They're one of the last great devs we have.
