According to polish news tv station - TVN24, President Obama recieved from Polish prime minister, Collector`s Edition of Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Obama has also received Witcher book, autographed by the author and iPad with polish films.
I wonder what he was thinking when he saw the "Assassins of Kings" part.
He's not a king though.
Thing is he's probably going to play for like a couple of hours, then put the game on the self then that's it. His copy will never see the light of a disc tray again.
HAHA, I wonder how it went down, Hey Obama, heard bout the Witcher? check it out, it owns man
I do not read Mox-news more than likely for the same reason you don't? I honestly believe I am free to speak what I wish as you are free to disagree and refute. However I don't usually result to insults... I have 3 children. I happen to read a lot about the political structure currently employed by this nation, and feel well within my ability to speak. I take time on a lot of things not always what others would but I wanted to know, what about what I said had anything to do with a conspiracy? Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Also note that I am not trying to argue with you, because arguing is like mud wrestling with a pig; after a while you get tired and then... you realize that the pig likes it. :) Have a good day konabro
I can just hear them now over at Fox Propaganda News! O'Reily- "Not only is President Obama a black man with a Muslim name but.... he also is a PC Gamer....How low has this man sunk in 3 years since being elected. Hannity - "Nooooooooooooooooooooooo oooo! we are all doomed! wait isn't PC gaming dead? Beck - "That's the last Got-Dam straw o'reily! I don't care how many problems this man "Obama" has fixed we have got to get him outta here! This is just not America anymore". Him being a PC gamer is more proof Obama was not born in America. Hannity - "See if people would have just voted for Bush a 3rd time like we told them they could this never would of happened"
I wonder what the specs on Obama's PC are....
Actually, traditionally dems have been more against video games then republicans. Hilary Clinton wanted gta San Andreas banned. Obama made a statement about how video games are raising our children. But I will agree that fox news is ridiculous.
is your post for real?
Obama's a Muslim name? how exactly does someone have a "Muslim" name? don't you mean an Arabic or Persian name?
I'm sure he is a PC elitist
@ xtream The reason (dumb) people talk about Obama being a Muslim or affiliated with them is because of his middle name: Hussein.
well Bill Clinton fulfilled every mans fantasy of "getting it on" in the Oval office! and President Obama will fulfill every PC Gamers fantasy of playing The Witcher 2 on the most futuristic PC and monitors the world has every made which reside inside the Presidents "Situation Room" at the white House....what a lucky guy! They got wall to wall large screen monitors in there. His PC's are probably all Proprietary Space Age IBM's with 5GB Encryption running on hardware made outta living tissue and plasma cells while the CPU is made out of Crystals and actually has "human" brain Cells in it or just some high dollar stuff from Newegg. Either way it's better than what any of us will buy 10 years from now.
Obama : 9GB Patch ?!, Nuke The Poland....
And I guarantee you he will never play them
You might want to rephrase that to never play them while under Presidency.
I have no idea where the rampant disagrees came from. Either people just love to troll-disagree on here, or people constantly misunderstand.
Haha Poland must REALLY be proud of TW2 to have to give it to a president for a gift.
I actually just finished the game about 30 minutes ago... I've played ALOT of RPGs, I mean ALOT...and this game, even though sort of short for an RPG, is hands down the best RPG i've played this generation and one of the greatest of ALL time. OT: I don't know if he will have time to play, but I hope he does!
Sweet game.He should play it.
To bad he'll prob just burn it.
Haha I thought that too. Where did that come from?
cant stop laughing imagining obama_burning_thewitcher2.jpg
I'm sorry I'm sorry. I should have said that after the Drudge Report gets a hold of this the right wing will prob want to burn Obama at the steak because he is a witch
Yes...they will burn him at the "steak"(lol...STEAK she says!). :P
is this really a good game? am i missing out? i been hearing a lot about it lately but some how i missed everything about it before release...
yes you are!
It's not available for your ps3 I'm afraid :(
I remember reading somewhere that the game is a big deal for Poland, I guess this proves it!
Well... that's unexpected but hey , one day when the world will not be at war ( 2 wars ATM ) he'll be able to play IT with ubersampling ON
lol someone give him COD, so he knows what pain is
Given that Ron Paul is going to evict Obama next year, Obama will have plenty of time to play this wonderful game.
Haha! Good one! Oh ..wait, are you being serious?
Palin will be nominated if she runs. Obama can play it with a pint of Guinness while Palin wins it for him.
It sure is getting political up in here.
who knows what he'll do with it.... no one really knows.... maybe he will play it... it's not like you know every "personal" minute the man has.... I mean he could be a gamer... he is after all a regular man... who just happened to be elected president.... they all are just regular people.... just like soldiers are regular people... they just chose to serve.... and that's why there are dumbasses in the Military and that's why there are Brilliant people in the Military.... it's because everyone is just a regular person regardless.... there is no application question about being an idiot... so if you happen to be a regular person that is an idiot than you are an idiot... but you are still a regular person just like everyone else.... we all bleed blood.. but yeah, who knows and who cares if he plays it... maybe he'll pass it off to a staff gamer... maybe he'll keep it as a keepsake... it was the collector's edition... maybe it's next to all the other gifts he has received... who knows.... it's kind of cool I think... Poland just gives whatever they want to give... but yeah, no one knows if Obama will try it or not... no one knows if he plays games or not.... people just looking for stories when they don't matter at all.
I heard Obama was a pc gamer who liked portal a lot....maybe the PM heard the same rumor and that's why he gave him the game..dunno. http://kokugamer.com/2010/0...
It is true a profession does not define you but trends are given... (ie. classmates who took biology instead of physics or chemestry at my high school are generally dumber... and are mostly women). I not trying to offend anyone by this, but I just want to make a point with a true fact.
but seriously good thing it's 2011... because if it was in the 1950's we probably would have nuked them in Thanks.
... I wonder if anyone in the media will pick up on the adult content in the game.
why does that matter???? he is the President.... minimum age required is 35..... 35 last time I check qualified as an ADULT.... so it doesn't matter.... Mature, Teen, Everyone..... it doesn't matter... the man could have gotten an all GOLD PLATED copy for all we know.... who fucking cares the man was given a 17+ game....... He deals with the death of hundreds daily.... no one cares if he has a mature rated game.
It shouldn't matter, but the conservative side of the media has a habit of making mountains out of mole hills... and the liberal side isn't all that much better either. Although not illegal, they'll still frown upon it.
This just in! Obama imports foreign interactive pornography!
*fox news* "We've just gotten a report that President Obama has been involved in recent crude, and lewd activities involving multiple women. None of which are The First Lady Michelle Obama. Oh, wait. I've just been told that it's just a video game and we should get off our high horse and actually report the news." That guy obviously didn't understand what you were saying.
All it takes is one Obama twitter about the gift and it'll make it worth for the developer.
Wait till Fox News find out there's bush in Witcher 2...and I don't mean Dubya. If they'll freak out over Mass Effects soft PG13 rated sex scenes, wait till they check out the Witcher 2.
...publishers are the ones pushing for controversy as a marketing tool rather than Fox News itself as everyone knows controversy sells.
I also notice it is nowhere to be found on the most popular list on n4g! If it comes to consoles it will.. also I guess obama has a gaming rig?
I think that it will become an issue if it moves to console because that has the stigma of being a device for kids and adults where as PC is considered to be more adult as it is a bigger investment, you might see the consoles getting an edited version if it eventually moves over. Proof: just look at the Sabateur which had nudity in straight out the box on PC,yet if you bought it on consoles then you had to get it as DLC.
Obama returned the gesture by supplying the priminister with a pre-release copy of Duke Nukem forever apparently...
Actually I heard President Obama was also promoting "Going Green" and "Recycling Plastic" on this mini tour so he gave the Prime Minister of Poland a Zune, a refillable ink pen, and several thousand Autograph cartridges of E.T.
Lucky guy his is!! I want to be president by time The Witcher 3 comes to see if I get luck! ME for 2013! vote!! In the mean time I will wait for obama's review..
Obama's review would by AWESOME!!!
even the president plays games
I say he put it on got a great game in then got hit with that damn patch... God knows what the broadband speed is in the whitehouse though.
Check this out!!! Obama plays video games wowww!!!! Headlines!!! just as surprising as The Pope with an Ipod.
Phenomenal game. Glad they are so proud of the developers in Poland, they have a right to be.
go CDproject you guys are awesome!! Fantastic game it's rpg gameplay is the best in 10 years it's graphics are better than anything currently out! Metro2033 DX11 finally got beat!
i asked for refund because game is totally unplayable + 9GB patch,no game is worth 20GB HD Space...but i will probably pirate it one day.
did you read the system requirements, the game is not designed for anything less that a quad core with an 8800gtx and 4gb ram Thats a minimum it runs at 50-60 frames for me(twice as fast as 99% of console games) and is the most stunning game I have ever seen ever!
Witcher 2 has become pride of poland and why not? I'm reading the novels and they are also fantastic-unusual takes on well-known fairy tales.I heard their is a pen and paper game out there.Witcher 2 has made me a witcher addict-just like D&D did in my school days. If obama launches this,i'm sure USA will lose good 40 hours service from its president.
Slow news day...
obama does not play video games... he only does lines of cocain for fun...
So instead of golfing all the time and going to Hawaii, he'll be sitting at his desk playing Witcher 2.
