    The one's pretty good. The fighting is decent. TBH it's a bit awkward, but the amount of stuff you can do in game is pretty impressive. I never finished it though.. lost my save files. Got to the 2nd area with the massive market area and huge castle, etc.

    The 'third level' was the best IMHO..the area with the river, lady of the lake, grassland etc. If you had a decent weapon/spell capability, you could have a lot of fun on that level.:)

    I don't think so, but i heard that CD Project is considering on using DX11 though it wasn't their main priority.

    That video looks great. Really can't wait for this game to come out more than any other game this year (and there are a lot of good ones coming in 2011).

    Video is pretty nice although were's da blood at. I hope this is just some lame american version like they did with the 1st one one,

    And it's a dam shame they removed the timing from attacks used to love that as it was not like your typical attacks and was some thing different which made you think a bit. Pity they could of not made it optional

    Dragon age sex scene is pretty horrid really.But yes, there will a deeper romance in this game and a full blown romance scene. Like this

    3 beginnings, 16 endings. WOW. I am starting to get really excited about this game.

    Wonder if it'll import your save game from Witcher 1? the ending you got being the beginning of the witcher 2?

    Thanks for info! Cool, this game will be coded for quad core. I think it will stress the system a bit, but they also said that it will scale well. I have big hopes for this game.

    Man the first one seems long. The Epilogue is like a whole 'nother chapter. Gah normally I'd be psyched but I have so many other games and kind of ready to be done with this, as much as I've enjoyed it...

    So will the save game import be like Mass Effect probably and need Witcher 1 installed in order to locate the files? Ideally like to free up that disk space when I finally finish the game...

    They haven't released the detail about how the game ending will be imported but i suspect no because The Witcher didn't have a specialized end game save file.
    And you don't need to replay The Witcher to get your different beginning. TW 2 will have a feature to define the choice that you did in The Witcher if you didn't export any save game (like PS3 version of Mass Effect 2)

    And some info from new Witcher 2 presentation
    original post

    its coming from RPGcodex so take it as what it is.

    About 40 hours on average. I don't think you need the first game to understand the second one though i think this game will resolve some unresolved story quest from the first game,
    It will be better if you have the book though, it give you more insight on the witcher world and the character :toast: (FYI this game was an adaptation from the book not the other way around).

    But 1st one is worth playing so why would ya want to miss out on that.. I am wondering if there will be more blood in the Europe version than the American version like witcher 1. I will get a europe version or at the very least a blood patch :p.
