    Wow the textures look really good in those screenshots.
    Made my preorder awhile ago, its the Premium Edition which is a good deal for a brand new game and i don't usually buy special editions. Its like £25 on amazon but i got it for £21 with a code on another site.

    For those who still afraid that missing dismemberment. ESRB has confirmed it on their rating summary along with other hilarious thing :roll:
    Also new info from polish interview here (translated)
    Great news on preorder number, and it's look like they're going to expand GoG business in 2011. Perhaps we could see some newer game released in GoG :p.

    Why can't other company have DLC Policy like Cd Projekt. Hell they are the first developer that didn't make me mad about 0 day DLC :).

    You can now download full game manual on Steam

    TF2 now has 3 Witcher 2 items

    New Witcher site is now online along with a new trailer

    http://en.thewitcher.com/the-witcher/2/world/video/

    Definitely the most epic video game trailer that i have ever seen. Even more impressive considering that it only contain in-game cut scene with no editing whatsoever :eek:

    LOL, gameplay over graphics any day. And as for the 1st one it had a good reason not to look the best to start it's a old game and the game engine is a lot older as it ran on the NWN1 game engine.

    I was going to wait for awhile before buying the sequel until the price went down a little but after watching the newest trailer, I just put it back on my pre-order list. This game looks to have a lot of potential and I love how the developers aren't treating us like we're the enemy. :) Now I need to finish the first one. xD
